Despite the doom and gloom recession scenario, many people are exploring the value and benefits of becoming self employed. Owning a small business in the UK can be a rewarding and challenging enterprise. Many small business recruitment are experiencing a huge amount of growth as we head into the 4th quarter of 2011. The flipside of growth though is that when your business starts growing you need to start employing more people who share your vision and can help you achieve your organisational goals.
Recruitment and hiring is always going to be a challenge if you are a small business owner. Not only are you searching for people with the right skills and talents for your business, but you will also be looking for the right type of personality to fit into a small team. A mistake in hiring can be one of the most costly mistakes that a small business can make, but it is often hard to find the perfect person for your team.
Where to find people?
Often, a small business owner does not have the time to devote to the recruitment process. An advert in a local newspaper or on your website is as far as it goes. Small business owners are also wary of employing recruiters to find potential candidates due to the cost involved.
