Given the current volatile political and economic climate, even the most established businesses are looking to steady their feet firmly on the ground.
We’ve already seen many examples in the recent news – most notably the demise of the 178-year old firm Thomas Cook. Having said all that, recruitment still remains a resilient sector as it grew in turnover by 11 per cent since 2017/2018 and is expected to grow by 5% in the next year, thanks to the many determined businesses rising above the external threats to keep driving the economy forward.
For some SMEs, the current uncertainty means refocusing their resources to keep their lights on.
Some recruitment businesses will have started planning well ahead of the doomsday to make sure they don’t become yet another Thomas Cook.
For others, it’s turning these challenges into opportunities. Opportunities in the form of diversifying into new markets, taking their business overseas, mergers and acquisitions and the like. These businesses will have a unique recipe for mitigating risk and succeeding even in uncertain times. What is your secret recipe for success? Don’t have one yet? Then you’re in the right place.
Guiding you through uncertainty
We can both agree on one thing – what worked yesterday won’t necessarily work today, or tomorrow as the world around us and the future ahead is incalculable.
But what we do know for sure is that having an expert or two who’ve been through it all guide you through the obvious pitfalls, the do’s and the don’ts of scaling up your business can certainly help you evade risk.
Growth doesn’t happen overnight, and it certainly isn’t the fruit of a single person’s labour. You might be a one-person-army or a robust team of ambitious recruiters building your dream business. Whatever stage you’re at, we can provide you the support you need to execute your next plan – be it keeping your lights on, diversifying into new markets, realigning your business for growth or mergers and acquisitions.
