A statement from the Federation of Small Businesses (http://www.fsb.org.uk) urges small business owners to be cautious about outsourcing:
“People should make sure they are getting the right service for the size of company they are. They should not have to shell out for blanket coverage. It’s about striking a balance.”
What kind of balance are you striking in your business? Are you finding that you are paying high prices for help with your business tasks, but you’re not getting the results you’d hoped for?
When you choose a plumber to fix the pipes in your home or a dry cleaner for your business suits, you are looking for a good value and quality service that you don’t have to think twice about. Once you’ve chosen a company to the work, you want to confidently move forward without having to reevaluate the decision. This should be your approach in getting help with your business as well.
We all need help to achieve our goals, whether it be in our personal lives or in our businesses. And there’s nothing worse than feeling like you wish you’d hired someone else once the job is done. I hate that feeling.
Are you going back over work that your staff has already completed to make sure it was done right the first time? Do you have regrets about your hired help? If you answered “yes” to either question, I encourage you to reconsider.
We can’t do it all ourselves, that’s for sure. As small business owners, we just don’t have the superhuman capability we need to get it all done. What’s inevitable is that you need to hire help. But what’s not inevitable is the quality, reliability, and affordability of the help you’re going to hire.
For tasks that you need done in your home, you probably ask your friends and neighbors who they’ve used and how satisfied they were with the work. You need a person or an organization you can trust. And you need a match for the task at hand.
Because you are growing your small business, you need a partner like 123Employee to provide you with trustworthy, reliable, affordable help. I know the struggles of finding good help, and I’ve been using the services of our staffing group with great results.
Don’t be hard on yourself, but do be cautious in your business decisions. Choose a partners like us. We’ll succeed together.
