Business owners face one biggest challenge while their business is growing – that of recruiting and selecting proper manpower. A business owner does everything on his own initially, and then replaces himself with someone else. The business owner expects the replacement to be an exact replica. Now, here is the caution – don’t expect your employee to be as perfect as you are on a task. Be patient with the person for some time, spend time with him for him to understand the nitty-gritty of the task. Once you have confidence, leave him alone to complete the job. Let him commit mistakes initially. Explain to him the ways of completing the task properly.
You may even look for part-time workers for your growing organization. Don’t hire a full-time marketing manager initially – you may not need him full-time, still pay him for full-time job. Once the organization grows, consider conversion of part-time jobs into full-time.
You may consider outsourcing your monotonous and clerical jobs. This will save you precious time of yours for better things to do and develop business further. Outsourcing brings many advantages – you get skilled employees at lower cost. You may even consider college students for the tasks which are project kind. Students will be more than interested in doing such jobs for the money it will bring to them, and they will not be your permanent employees.
