A great thing about running a business in a huge global city like Miami is that you have the ability to scale your business extremely quickly.
It’s not like small towns, where the limited amount of people is likely to put a cap on sales. The limited amount of commercial property is likely put the brakes on any dreams of lightning-fast expansion. That’s provided that it makes business sense to open two locations in a tiny town (often it doesn’t). In this case, you’d need to expand outside of the small town, which could present logistical problems.
On the other hand in a populous area like Miami, it usually makes perfect sense to open multiple locations in the same city. What’s more, it much easier to do this very quickly.
The one major hurdle preventing you from scaling at speed might be the amount of capital, time, and effort you need to put into recruiting new staff. However, there are way around that too.
There are loads of benefits to outsourcing, not least it provides you the opportunity to scale your business very quickly.
With outsourcing, you don’t need to place job ads, interview candidates, train the successful employee or deal with any of their HR issues like sick pay or annual leave. Instead, you just choose the best company for the job, sign the contract, sit back, and relax. In fact, there are many agencies with expertise in certain types of role. These will probably be able to perform the non-crucial tasks in your company much better than the average recruit. A strong brief of your expectations and regular communication with your client will help to ensure that this remains the case.
In a big city like Miami, it’s likely there will be loads of decent options right on your doorstep too. If you’re looking for a company to provide a top-notch managed IT service, Miami has plenty. You want someone to look after your offices, there’s tons of highly-rated facilities management agencies in the city. The list goes on…
Another benefit is that you can typically rid yourself of their services far easier than you can do with permanent employees. If you’ve decided you don’t want the best managed IT services Miami has to offer anymore? Simply cancel the contract. There are less employment laws preventing you from doing that without any headaches. Ideal for a small business that doesn’t have the capital to weather rough storms.
There are definite long-term advantages to hiring new employees. These are easier to man-manage and monitor. You can give them a stronger idea of your company culture and up-skill them so they can eventually take on a more important role. In the positions that are absolutely to the success of your business, it’s advisable to do this.
However, in areas where you need new faces in a hurry, there’s arguably no better business strategy than outsourcing.
