Finding and hiring the right people ensures your business is in the best position to sustain itself or grow.
You’ll need to consider the skills and experience you need, how much you can afford to pay, and whether you require full-time, part-time, casual or other types of employees. You may wish to seek advice from a contact in a similar business, or from a recruitment company with experience in your sector and region.
You’ll also have to align your employment negotiations with relevant industry agreements and the laws covering equal opportunity
When you’ve identified your workforce needs, you should prepare a job description that outlines the roles and responsibilities of each position. This will help you advertise for and attract the right person for each job.
