Research has shown that many small and medium-sized businesses are finding they cannot recruit the managers they need. The two most common reasons given are lack of suitable skills and inability to match the remuneration packages offered by larger businesses.
Finding a person with the right skills, qualifications and experience can be both difficult and time-consuming. But with the internet increasingly becoming recognised as an accepted job-hunting resource, employers have found that online recruitment can be very effective.
Many smaller businesses choose to employ staff on a part-time basis. This often has the advantage of controlling costs when there is no need for a full-time worker and of adding flexibility to the running of the business.
