If you’re a small business owner, you can’t afford to have staff shortages when running your business. Unlike large organisations, the impact when you don’t have employees to do tasks is more significant.
Recruitment takes time and resources, which also makes it harder for SME owners to handle business when there’s an open position. It may take weeks or even months before you find the perfect candidate!
SME owners should always be hiring, even when the business is doing well to prevent the problems stated above from happening. Here’s why you should always be on the lookout for candidates on Jobstreet:
Prevent poor hiring decisions
Imagine this: your business is in a pinch, and you’re desperate to fill in a vacancy. The candidates you’re interviewing are mediocre at best, but due to the urgent situation, you’re forced to hire a person that you’re not that happy with.
If your doors are always open for walk-ins, it gives you more time to make decisions without the pressure. You’ll have a clear head to screen every candidate, and you have more choices to choose from.
Respond faster to emergencies
Having backup employees who can step in during emergencies is crucial to your ability to perform. It’s best when you don’t need to disrupt the flow of work such as your delivery cycle or your management of inventory. If you or one of your employees is sick or unavailable, you can still handle the situation with your backup staff.
Finding someone you need
Hiring is all about finding the right person and the right time. If you place recruitment only at times when needed, the perfect employee may miss the opportunity to work with you. When you’re always hiring, you’ll have more chances to meet great people and flag them in times of need.
Finding someone you never knew you needed
Sometimes, we don’t know what we need until it appears. It’s the same with employees too. But if your doors are always closed, you may never come across that person. Finding the people you never knew you needed gives you the possibility to open new positions and opportunities.
