Growing your team can be critical to your small business’s success. And it’s not always as easy as just putting out a job listing and hoping the right talent comes to you. You have to be proactive when it comes to creating a hiring strategy that works for your business.
That also means that you have to really consider your business’s budget when it comes to hiring. Not all small businesses can afford to designate large amounts of money to hiring. So you need to be able to find a balance between getting the best people and sticking to your budget.
You can learn more about what it takes to grow a small business team while hiring employees on a limited budget during a live Twitter chat called “Salary Levels Today: How to Get the Best People on a Budget” on Wednesday, November 2 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET. The chat is sponsored by Accountemps (@accountemps) and features a variety of small business experts and helpful topics.
Small Business Trends founder and CEO Anita Campbell (@SmallBizTrends) will serve as a chat moderator, along with Ivana Taylor of DIY Marketers (@DIYMarketers) and Robert Half of Accountemps (@Smallbizhiring).
Those business experts will discuss a variety of questions with Twitter chat participants, including:
Are salaries going up or remaining steady? When hiring employees on a limited budget, you’ll need to understand what types of positions are most in demand, since you might have to pay a premium for certain types of help.
What are the benefits of hiring a temporary or temp-to-hire employee? Temporary employees can be a great resource for small businesses. Whether you’re trying to save some money or try out employees by having them work on a temporary basis, going this route can have its place in a variety of business environments.
How do you stay within your budget yet still get qualified people to work for your business? When trying to attract the best talent to your business, you need to walk a fine line. It can be difficult to get the best talent while still hiring employees on a limited budget. But chat participants will discuss the best possible strategies they’ve used for doing just that.
What factors should employers consider when setting salary? There’s a lot that goes into setting a salary for your employees. You have to have a set budget, a starting point, and some guidelines for salary negotiations. Moderators and chat participants will discuss various aspects of setting salaries as part of the Twitter chat.
This is a great opportunity for entrepreneurs and small business owners to learn about attracting the best possible employees to your business, even when you’re on a set budget.
