I don't need to hire. Or do I?

Why you should look to hire now.

It can be easy to not want to recruit new individuals when your current workforce appears to be handling the current volume.

But if that new project pitch comes off or you successfully secure that next round of funding, you don’t want to be in the deep end. And neither does your team.

Here are our top two reasons why you should look at hiring:

Fresh perspective

Hiring new talent will help bring in a new perspective and a fresh pair of eyes is often invaluable.

From integrating their previous experience to feeding back on process flaws, having that new person on the team can inject a new light on things that might be in the dark.

Expansion support

In particular, we often see start-ups wait until the last moment before they look at hiring additional resource.

While the company might be your baby, your company will only ever be as big as one person if you take on all the responsibility. By hiring new talent and delegating tasks to those more proficient at them will help grow your vision for the company.
