Employing people into your ShedBoss franchise is something you should expect to do during your time at the helm of a custom design shed business. However, it's important to take your time with these tasks and ensure you get the right person for the job. According to a Hays Recruitment survey, hiring the wrong person can have a negative effect on the overarching success of your business venture.
In fact, 58 per cent of employers spoken to by the company stated the lack of the right skills could hamper operations, with another 68 per cent willing to sponsor or employ someone from overseas rather than run the risk of hiring the wrong person initially for the job. The highest areas suffering from these issues are in middle management and accounting and finances.
Hays Managing Director of Hays in Australia & New Zealand Nick Deligiannis said the increasing rates of employment and expansion has something to do with this, as more employers began to rapidly grow without taking the time to consider all their options.
"It's quite a paradox; for some job functions there is still a surplus of candidates yet in others, often those that require highly-skilled and experienced professionals, there is a shortage of suitable talent," said Mr Deligiannis in a June 17 statement.
To avoid these complications as a franchise owner, take your time when interviewing and hiring staff.
At ShedBoss, we maintain a high quality of building to ensure products don't just function well, but also look great. This means looking for staff that are talented builders to ensure that each product is built strong and built right. Other things you should look for include a great attitude, dedication to projects and willingness to learn.
While it may take a little longer to find the right staff, this is preferable to either hiring the wrong person for the job or experiencing a high employment turn over rate heading into the future.
