Is Your Business MISSING Someone? 

Let’s be honest, one business owner to another: making money in your business is a lot more exciting than the “people” stuff.  As a bean counter-turned-people person, I know that in a small business, access to finance, managing cash flow, marketing and closing deals are way ahead of looking after the talent. Like Mars and Earth! 

Many SMEs, especially in SA, do NOT want to employ staff, or if they do have staff, would gladly give them up! (Sure, there are the odd exceptions). Given the high cost of labour, stringent labour laws, unethical behaviour, incompetence and performance issues, I can’t blame the entrepreneur that wants to take staff out of their business equation.

However, it gets interesting here: 

The success of your business comes down to talent, starting with YOU and then backing it up with a winning team.

It doesn’t matter whether you are in the business of education, IT development, coaching, film making or producing antibiotics… by understanding the new HR/Talent landscape and the implications for a SME, you can capitalise on your talents and leverage the expertise of others to build your business.

If you're serious about making money and saving time in 2010, the Working Edge Club – Entrepreneur will help you build a winning team for your business.

The Working Edge Club – Entrepreneur Lite membership is designed for 2 types of business owners:

1. Solo - "I don't want any permanent staff, but I want talented people to build my business".

Manshadow.jpgThe new work economy provides opportunities to attract, engage and retain talent for the benefit of your business without having to employ them (unless you change your mind).

In addition to permanent staff, temps and contractors, the emerging talent market consists of volunteers, fans, employed-entrepreneurs, alliances, working relationships, project hire, mentees, peer-peer groups, virtual workforces, outsourcing, mobile workforces, ghost talent, contracted partners… you can access the talent you need for your business, when you need it,  to achieve what you want, without the traditional employment relationship risks.

"I want to attract and retain permanent staff to build my business"

Most SME’s don’t have a dedicated, qualified HR professional to attract, engage and retain talent due to cost factors. They end up spending way too much time on staff issues, trying to duplicate what Corporates do, training staff only to see them poached, stuffing up the fine print and joining the CCMA case files.

The good news is that it's possible to set your business up to get the staff you want (no recruitment agents), streamline job design, tie remuneration to performance, training and development, recognition, performance and have the policies and processes on autopilot.
