Russell has very kindly agreed to Chair and speak once again at the Business Owners Forum due to the huge success of the last meeting
'Is this a Good Time for Small or Micro Businesses?'
Following Members' feedback, Russell will be discussing the following points:
Is this a good time for small or micro businesses? Or is it better to be larger?
What does a small or micro business need to do if business size is indeed a key factor for profitability?
What tactics would negate the business size issue?
Is the narrow niche approach still the best tactical position moving forwards, or a selected aggregate of complementary recruitment supply services or extended services beyond recruitment supply? The efficiency of a niche may be higher but will clients be harder to win, margins lower and need arise to glean all opportunities from that prospect?
Should recruitment business aggregation be a key consideration for either increased profitability or even survival?
How do we monitor Recruitment Consultants performance and distinguish between those whose desks have been genuinely hit by the pandemic and therefore not hitting targets, or those who are not flexing their desks to find new or different opportunities? And therefore, as a leader how should we flex performance management whilst considering the longer term potential of a consultant.
Assessing current talent within your business, considering the gaps and whether you need a 6/12 month internal recruitment strategy.
