Hire to Scale Your Business. Fast.

Hire to Scale Your Business. Fast.

Growth is impossible without hiring. Attracting and hiring the right people at all levels of the company is critical to successful growth. And hiring is not always easy to get right. If your company is scaling quickly, here’s how to hire the kind of employees which will help your company grow:

If we’ve learnt anything over the last few years it’s that companies need to be agile in order to succeed. It’s difficult to predict today where your company will be in one year (or one decade’s) time. That’s why a flexible workforce is key to your company’s growth. Hire people who can pivot when needed: employees who are flexible in terms of location (remote or hybrid work) and also in terms of their work style.

Finding employees who fit this bill isn’t easy, but we at RecruitMyMom believe we have the answer: Skilled moms tick all the boxes. They are agile, organised, loyal, hardworking employees who are able to quickly adapt to different situations.

1. Education vs soft skills when hiring new staff?

Education and work experience are important when you’re hiring for a fast growing company, but not at the expense of soft skills.

Soft skills are a grouping of interpersonal skills which relates to how an employee works. These skills can help contribute towards a harmonious and productive workplace environment. Soft skills include but are not limited to strong communication skills, conflict resolution, the ability to multi-task and the ability to work under pressure.

As we enter a fast-paced, largely digital era, employees with enhanced soft skills who can quickly grasp the bigger picture and have no problem adapting to change will be the ones who succeed in your fast growing company.

It must be noted that from compassion to communication skills, women naturally possess a lot of soft skills. And as such female hires are strong candidates to help your business scale.

2. Can the outsourcing of skills accelerate your company’s growth?

We at RecruitMyMom have noticed a sharp rise in contract hiring. And with good reason as contract hiring, or the outsourcing of skills for a fixed duration or defined project, allows your company the freedom to build a lean organisation which can quickly scale up or down as demand fluctuates. When you outsources the skills you don’t have, you can better manage your internal resources and focus on becoming the expert at what you deliver to the market.

An added benefit of outsourcing specialised skills is that it helps you to manage the impact of market uncertainties. 

3. How and why does diversity affect company growth?

The fastest way to stunt your company’s growth is to continually hire like-minded people. When all your employees have the same background and life experiences, innovation is less likely to happen.

Remember to include diversity from the top down when hiring. It’s been noted that women in leadership do more to support their teams and advance diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.

4. Should you hire a distributed or hybrid workforce? 

A distributed workforce is one where all of the employees work remotely. A hybrid workforce is where one blends both remote working with office working when required to do so.

The when you default to hiring in-office staff, there are expenses such office space, but ask if it is necessary to the success of your scale-up? There are many benefits of a remote workforce, such as the rental and office furnishing cost savings can be invested in productive staffing.

5. What skills must we hire remotely in order to secure top talent and where do we find them?

If a particular skill is in short-supply in the geographical area of the business, consider looking for remote A-players. Hiring remote staff opens the talent pool to a national and global level.  Companies globally seek out top-calibre South African skills to work remotely because of the calibre of skill, English language and favourable exchange rates. When looking to hire top-calibre remote skills, use experts in remote recruitment, like RecruitMyMom, that know and understand what soft skills a candidate requires in order to successfully thrive  as a work-from-home employee.
