After speaking to and exchanging ideas with many business owners over the years, I’ve realized that the decision to grow one’s business can face a range of challenges. A lot of opportunities and difficulties demand different solutions as businesses grow.
You Need to Hire as you Grow
One critical factor to growing your business is the issue of staffing. As you expand your services, and as your clients increase, you need to hire people to handle customer support, project management, and other tasks. Hiring the right people to handle other areas of your business will allow you to focus on the core aspects of growing your business such as sales.
This will make your life easier and will enable you to put more of your energy into strategizing and implementing growth measures.
The Hiring Process as a Barrier
The recruitment process isn’t really an easy task, no matter how essential it might be to a company. Even big companies undergo this crucial situation—whether because they lack time, qualification tests, and training materials, or because they don’t have a recruitment expert to help with this problem.
Because it’s easier to find someone who can remotely work from home, most companies usually end up hiring work-at-home freelancers to do work for them.
The Disadvantages of Hiring Remote Employees
Hiring freelancers to work remotely for you is more complicated than you think and presents huge risks that would stifle your growth.
Below are some of the downsides of hiring remote employees from home:
No Professional Work Environment
For one, people who work from home have all the distractions that can make concentrating on work very difficult. I’ve said this in the webinar and I’m stressing it once again: People work better and are more productive when in a professional work environment as opposed to when sitting at home working.
Issues on Information Security
In the online marketing industry, we handle many private and confidential information. When you hire remote employees from home, you no longer have control over these confidential information. Being in this kind of situation may only bring you more serious problems in the future.
Difficulty with Retention
Many companies who find remote workers find them through sites that contract freelancers. This should be treated as a red flag, as these people have the tendency to consistently look for remote jobs online the same time they’re working for you.
Lack of Productivity Tracking and Supervision
Tracking your employees’ performance is one of the most vital roles of a business owner. This could be done by having an automated productivity tracker or by simply walking around the office to check on what your staff is working on. However, it could be really difficult, if not impossible, to track a worker’s performance when he’s doing all the work at home.
