With a small business, you are often relying on your own and your employees’ skills to run most aspects of the business. Therefore, expanding your business skills is important for your business to grow.
One way of expanding skills in your business is to employ workers who have the skills you require.
If you are going to employ workers for your small business, there are a number of ways you can recruit your staff. Aside from traditional recruitment methods, you could try:
- searching for job seekers with the skills you need through professional networks or communities
- finding workers through your family and friend networks
- advertising your positions through Nigerian JobSearch for free
- taking on employees through programs such as Apprenticeships.
When recruiting, consider how you can work with your employees, such as whether you need them to be physically present, or can the work be conducted through communicating online. If you don’t need your workers to be physically present, you may be able to save costs on office space, as well as broaden your recruitment options to different locations.
