We’ve recently become members of the Federation of Small Businesses ‘driving business ambition’ and we regularly receive their First Voice publication. If you haven’t read it, it’s really worth subscribing as there’s some fantastic insight into current market trends and hot topics.

Within the October – December 2018 edition, we’ve read that research has revealed that business ‘owners hang on too long before hiring’. There are a variety of reasons for this, with 63% nervous about the responsibility of becoming a manager, to 18% stressing their fear of employing the wrong person. 

So why is this relevant? Well, our Planit Scotland team could be the answer to these pre-hire worries. Our team can help you out and deliver a number of services as a short-term or long-term fix. We have some clients that use us at least one day per week, and others who call upon our help on a less frequent, adhoc basis. Our day rate is really competitive and you aren’t contracted to Planit Scotland so you can use us as and when you need us. This takes away the stress a business may face when training and managing a new employee! 

Our small but highly skilled team have an excellent track record of working with a variety of clients, across a broad range of sectors so this means we can adapt our working approach to suit you. We’re able to build a rapport with stakeholders and make the connections with your current team to ensure we deliver the work required in an efficient manner. 

Due to the nature of our working week, we network with many different people, soaking up ideas and building best practice so that we can deliver the tailored PR, marketing, event management and PA services for our growing client portfolio. You can use our team to test the waters and identify what additional support will deliver to help you build a case for recruiting a permanent member of staff. 

To leave you with a closing statistic, Business.com recently reported that by 2020 43% of businesses will be outsourcing.

So if you’re hesitant about hiring and want to chat it through. Get in touch with info@planitscotland.com and we can grab a coffee to see how we might be able to help you in the first instance.
