You established your business a few years ago and it’s thriving. In fact, it’s almost becoming too much to handle.
You have a stable workforce that has boosted your company exponentially. You expect more growth in the future. However, you are not sure if your company can fulfill demands in its current capacity. Is it time to expand the workforce?
Do your core staff need a break?
You have a solid core of staff who love the company, but they’ve been stretched a little thin recently. This includes you. Bringing in a couple of new additions could allow everyone to take a well-earned rest, perhaps even a short vacation. For productivity to remain optimal, you need a happy workforce who are well-rested. You also can’t take everything on your own shoulders.
Could you do more with your time?
You have a certain skill set that has contributed to the success of your company. However, you find yourself having to complete tasks that are outside of your expertise. If you enlisted someone else with the relevant experience, you might be able to get back to what you do best.
Are your customers suffering?
You have loyal customers and you’re attracting new ones all the time. Nonetheless, clients have recently had to wait slightly longer than usual to receive services. Communication is suffering slightly and bringing in another body or two could definitely help with that.
Of course, hiring new staff is an important decision that requires careful consideration. As you expand your company, make sure that you’re familiar with your legal rights.
