“OK, I’m in business. Time to start hiring people.”
I have seen so many companies committing mistake of assuming that ” More People Mean More Business”.
This is wrong planning and often results in hire & fire culture.
Big structures never define success but “right-sized” compact teams with a mix of passion, experience and high energy culture where no one is labeled as ” back office staff” or “liability” is THE key to consistently create magic.
Today, at B4U Dubai, we are a team of 15 from 6 different nationalities in span of 4 years. My journey of 1 till 15 had one clear philosophy, we NEVER label any employee as support staff but ensure each member of team is actively involved in generating revenue in their own way. This is one of the key reasons for us garnering growth in times when most of our competitors are struggling to maintain last year numbers.
The RIGHT time to hire is only when you can really afford – NEVER hire someone and then try to make them affordable.
