Entrepreneurs Hub offers you comprehensive expertise and support throughout the hiring process. After agreeing a detailed target profile with you, we conduct an extensive search and selection process; presenting you with high-calibre pre-screened candidates. Before this, we establish that they meet all your requirements and fit the culture of your organisation. You’ll also have our assistance during the interview stages, therefore benefiting from our experience and insight into all the parts of the process.
There’ll always be times when the unexpected happens – a key member of staff leaves, goes off sick, or is simply not right for the role. Increasingly, businesses are using interim staff to cover short-term resource or skills gaps.
Bringing in external talent will allow you to quickly respond to customer needs, minimise lost opportunities, and tackle issues. Furthermore, having access to seasoned professionals like us – with hands-on expertise and a fresh pair of eyes – brings clarity and context to your situation. This, combined with the flexibility to start and stop the engagement without long-term, high-fixed employment costs, might be an appealing short to medium-term option for your business. It’s also a great way to assess the exact needs and ensure that the right permanent appointment is made.
Similarly, non-executive directors will add gravitas and breadth to an Executive Board and can quickly help balance out personalities and skill sets. A non-executive director is usually employed one to two days per month, or sometimes even as little as one day a quarter. They’ll be engaged in Board meetings and strategic, commercial and organisational decisions. Choosing the right non-executive director is critical. The cost compared to benefit is usually very good value as the hours they work are short, but the access you get to their experience can be invaluable.
- Succession planning and organisational design
As we’ve stated, people are at the heart of your business and good leadership is vital to retain and attract talent. However, over time, your markets change, your expectations rise, and your organisation needs to adapt and adjust. To address this, owners often find themselves in unfamiliar territory. They need new skills, deeper job focus and people with greater capacity – and often this can be anticipated and prepared for. Having good succession planning will allow your staff to step up to tackle new opportunities, whist giving you capacity as the leadership team changes.
Redesigning the leadership of your organisation has become a necessity in fast moving competitive times. Ensuring robust operation, competitiveness, quality, business growth and, of course, customer excellence. Many companies miss opportunities to refresh their organisational structure and – with that- all the benefits to accelerate and gain additional commercial yields from their teams.
Entrepreneurs Hub can help you. With a deep experience in succession planning and organisational design and development, we’ll empower your company to grow safely and securely. Our approach is straightforward, practical and gives measurable results.
