Hiring seems to be the answer for all problems, right?
The more people I have, the more hands there are to complete tasks.
That seems to be the obvious solution to ‘I have too much to do’.
But what if the answer is not in hiring new staff but in improving your processes, eliminating manual tasks, streamlining, or simply working smarter?
Hiring should be the last resort. Sitting down and critically looking at your processes should be the first action on your todo list.
So what process do you need to improve today to save on annual salary of yet another member of staff ‘that you desperately need’?
