Staff and Recruitment

 

As well as representing a potential major cost to a start-up business, the recruitment of sufficiently skilled and experienced staff might represent a major challenge the new venture.

The Need to Recruit New Staff

In some circumstances, the need to recruit new staff and personnel immediately might not exist. The management, whether they are an individual or a group of people, might be able to run the entire operation themselves in an initial period.

Whether or not this is the case, as the business starts to grow, the requirements for additional staff might become acute. The entity would be well advised to have contingency plans in place to provide necessary resources in a timely fashion.

Employment of Appropriately Skilled Staff

There are several avenues open to a start-up business seeking to employ staff. The numbers of personnel required would depend on the initial size of the enterprise following its launch.

Recruiting from Known Contacts

It is possible or perhaps likely that having gained knowledge and experience in a particular business sector, the management would have good contacts made throughout in their previous employment.

Some of these persons could be sought to work for the new venture. This might have the advantage of having some degree of certainty that such persons are capable of performing well in the position for which they are being hired.
