You wouldn’t dream of not having a well-thought-out plan for business growth – but expanding your team is typically key to delivering increased turnover, and it requires the same level of intelligent focus as a solid business plan does.
The UK's talent landscape is changing. A Gatsby Foundation survey1. of 502 small UK businesses highlights recruitment (43%) as a pressing concern, second only to rising costs (51%). Understanding 'why' and 'how' drives business success, so what are the critical components of a good strategy to buy and grow the skills you need?
While the UK's talent scene appears volatile, you can create your own roadmap. Align your hiring plan and skills development strategy with foundational principles, and you'll navigate the evolving market seamlessly.
Your approach to talent shouldn’t be isolated to leadership discussions. It needs to mirror your mission, ethos, and desired brand identity.
By aligning recruitment, skills development, and retention with your core 'why', you're not just striving for success but establishing a strategic business advantage over competitors who are working in a reactive way to manage their skills acquisition.
