In this day and age, most ambitious job-seekers strive to find a way to become a successful entrepreneur instead of joining a notable company. However, owning a business is not as glamorous a lifestyle as people like Mark Zuckerburg, founder of Facebook, make it out to be. Especially during the start-up period, when you begin to hire employees, much of your time goes to tedious administrative duties. This why, even when funds are tight, it is a good idea to hire a human resources management company.
Katherine Duncan discusses the progression of staffing a new business with University of California’s entrepreneur professor Naeem Zafar, in the blog Entrepreneur. They focus on how important it is to have a a solid batch of employees who deliver quality work that will jump start your budding company.
One valid point Duncan and Zafar agreed on was that, due to budget restrictions, it is challenging to find funds to hire full-time staff members right away. A strategic way to make sure your tasks are being thoroughly completed is to hire part-timers, advisors and contractors.
“As the business starts to grow and tasks start to go undone due to lack of time (or you just forgot), it’s time to bring in extra personnel,” Duncan said. “Determine what skills and talents you and your partners lack and seek out part-timers and contractors to fill in the gaps.”
Once your business begins to earn profits there will be money available to pay for employees, who will contribute to your success by giving full attention to tasks they specialize in. This will take some burdens off of your own plate, but will also create a demand for human resource duties in order to manage your staff.
