Shed Boss franchise owners interested in employment trends over the coming year should investigate the latest Hays Salary Guide, which has found that marketing, engineering and operational management are expected to see the largest permanent growth in numbers over the next 12 months. Out of the employers interviewed, 34 per cent intended to increase their staff numbers – which could be something to consider for your own custom designed garage franchise.
Marketing was the clear winner among Australian companies, with 56 per cent of businesses expected to expand their marketing departments. More advertising is a great way to help businesses connect with their customers and could be something to consider moving forward into 2014. Following marketing, IT and sales departments (37 per cent), project management (35 per cent) and human resources (31 per cent) are all expected to undergo expansion.
Managing Director of Hays in Australia & New Zealand Nick Deligiannis said that 41 per cent of those interviewed expect a more positive economic outlook to occur over the next 12 months, while 66 per cent are aiming to increase the level of business activity seen over the next year.
“With confidence returning it will be more likely that candidates are going to contemplate a career move in the next few months. This is good news for the businesses that plan to expand their headcount and make strategic hires to bolster their teams,” said Mr Deligiannis in a June 10 statement.
“But the key to attracting these high potential candidates still lies with finding them, engaging with them and making sure that they see the right opportunities at the right time.”
If you’re considering hiring more employees to facilitate the sale of custom designed workshops and other products, the coming 12 months are expected to be fruitful.
