New Zealand is made up of predominately small businesses with fewer than 20 employees and often there are only the directors / owners working in the business. Small businesses are often hesitant to hire new staff, sometimes due to the ongoing financial commitment and sometimes it’s due to the legal issues that can arise from hiring staff. Seasonality of a business can influence employment options or it could come down to a space issue if they are working from home. Some business owners find the whole recruitment and selection process quite daunting.
The “jack of all trades, master of none” is very prevalent in small business but it isn’t always the best way forward.
The above are all good reasons not to hire staff. We are in particularly challenging times, so what better time than now to consider your options. If permanent staffing isn’t the right answer for your business, have you considered getting a temporary worker or contractor? It really is very simple. A quick call to an agency like CallCentre People could be all it takes.
Professional recruiters like those employed by CallCentre People will take the details of the business, the industry and what you need. They will often provide you with alternative ideas you may not have even considered. A good recruitment consultant should provide you not just with someone who can do the job, but someone who will potentially add value to your business longer term.
If you are uncertain about just what you need, why not pick up the phone and have a conversation with a recruitment consultant, you never know unless you ask.
