Our very own Charlotte Bate took part in a webinar for the New Anglia Growth Hub, entitled ‘An Introduction to Employing People’. The webinar runs through various elements that businesses should consider when employing staff.

When people start their business, it is because they have a passion to deliver a product or service and then as their business grows they find themselves having to become employers.

It can seem so scary as there is so much that you need to know in terms of the legal rights and responsibilities but complying with the law and looking after your staff will make you more efficient and more profitable.

Getting the ‘people’ part of your new business wrong could cost you time, money or lost profitability through:

  • recruiting unsuitable employees
  • inadequate training
  • low morale and motivation
  • high absence levels and turnover of employees
  • ineffective management and supervision
  • high labour turnover
  • employment tribunal claims.

Our recent blog Hiring Someone – What You Need to Know gives a complete guide to the factors you need to consider when you expand your team.
