So, your business is growing and expanding…that’s great! And while you’re busy providing knockout services and innovative products, are you making sure that the day-to-day operations aren’t suffering? Is it time that you hired a team of professionals to help you take your business to even dizzier heights?
If you’re heading into the realms of hiring team members, it’s important to think about not only the kind of person you’re hiring, but also the role that they’ll play too. Having a strong support system behind you of highly specialised and trained experts can give your business the boost it might need. Here are four people we know you’ll need to help grow your business.
As you take on more and more employees, you’ll have even more employee paperwork to process, especially where wages are concerned. Leave paying your workforce to the experts. They’ll manage your payroll software and processing system (if you have one in place), keep your records up-to-date and calculate employee take home wages based on hours worked, benefits and taxes.
The world of marketing can be daunting to many. With emails, newsletters, social media and online communities to manage, it can be a minefield! Hiring a marketing professional can allow you to build stronger relationships between the business and consumer, while hopefully boosting sales in the process.
They’ll be able to run specific campaigns if you have seasonal sales or offers, keep your website updated with relevant content and manage all your social media platforms effortlessly.
Most companies out there rely on IT departments to keep them running. Whether it’s a network of computers, big switch boards or even retail POS systems, those in IT are often the unsung heroes of a business. No matter if you’re hiring a team of two or twenty, there’s a never-ending list of tasks that need to be completed daily by this particular department.
From general administration and technical support to programming and ensuring your website remains up and running, never take for granted just how much IT professionals do.
HR professionals have one of the most challenging jobs there are. If your business is growing and expanding, hiring a HR team is a must. They’ll play a key role in developing, reinforcing and changing the culture of your organisation, as well as hiring and training new starters, and having those difficult conversations you really don’t want to have.
Each role in a business plays a key part. When all are working harmoniously together, your business will run like a well oiled machine. Don’t forget, you’ll want to hire people who have a wealth of experience, so be prepared to pay well for them so you don’t end up paying twice.
