Aside from deciding what kind of person you’re looking for and finding them, there are some other factors, including legal obligations, to consider when employing someone for the first time.
We’ll guide you through the simple steps you need to take to propel your business to the next level.
Planning for the future
The best people will be attracted to your company and more likely to stay if you provide opportunities for training and development, including apprenticeships.
Finding the most appropriate training courses for your team is time well spent, and the good news is that you may well be eligible for financial support for this.
Keeping your own skills up-to-date is just as important. If you’re managing people for the first time, getting external training could make you not just good at managing a business, but also a great manager who people want to work for. This is really important for staff retention.
