There are so many different aspects to running a recruitment business that it can be hard to know which metrics to prioritise, particularly when making plans for growth. And why does growth – something that’s so fundamental to business - have to hurt? The truth is, it doesn’t!
On a day-to-day basis, you have client and candidate pipelines to keep on top of, GDPR to contend with and tech developments to keep up with as well as all the other general logistics of running a recruitment business.
With all this to think about, it’s easy to lose focus or get distracted from the things that really matter when looking to nurture and scale your business in a way that actually works.
The main reason a recruitment business will struggle following a growth spell is because not enough time and thought has been put into laying the initial groundwork before taking the plunge. The result of this is that the company will grow over a period of months only then to scale right back down again to the size it started with, when things felt easier and more manageable.
But the costs of scaling up and down like this can be crippling to a recruitment business!
