Nightmare Business Scenarios You Can Avoid With These Tips

BY Rebecca | 16 December, 2014 | no comments

There are parts of every business that are universally dreaded. Even in the modern age, where everything is seemingly automated at the click of a button there are parts of working that everyone hates doing. But it doesn’t have to be that way. With a bit of creative research and a bit more forward thinking you should be able to avoid them altogether.

There are plenty of tools out there capitalising on larger businesses wanting to avoid the tedious minutiae of certain parts of operating in the current climate. With an astronomical rise in the amount of administration needed in order to do anything, this is completely understandable. Here are a few of the bigger business nightmares that we’ve come across here at The Stockholm Network, and how we’ve avoided them.

Whatever business you’re in, there’s sure to be more training than you can shake a stick at. Traditionally this means overthinking even the most simple aspects of your work in order to adhere to some abstract idea of health and safety. Unfortunately a lot of this training is mandatory according to the law.

Fortunately, there are plenty of online services that will educate your employees before testing them. This will allow you to leave your employees to it. Sign up to one of them and put the whole mess of training out of your mind. You’ll find that these professional trainers are also able to train your employees quicker and more effectively than you ever could. So it makes good business sense as well.

The Hiring Process

The hiring process can be a nightmare for employers and employees alike. There are loads of tests to be filled out and interviews to be had. Of course this is a very important part of any new business, so you should be giving this your full attention. But that’s not to say that there aren’t ways for you to make your own life easier. There are plenty of services online that can make your life easier as an employer, such as myhrtoolkit. Using tools such as this you can make sure that you have the input you need in the process, whilst cutting out the more tedious aspects of the affair.

The Rebranding

This can be a bit of a nightmare for even the most established business. You’ll be looking to change the general perception that your business yields from the public, and so this will be fairly vital. It will also go against the grain of your established business.

You’re likely to have fallen into certain patterns of marketing and advertising, meaning that a complete overhaul will look and feel strange to you. Ideally this is not a process that should be undertaken in-house. You should be outsourcing to a consultancy or specialist advertising firm. They will have a more objective stance and will be able to easily understand the change that you want in your branding. They will also take the whole job off your hands.
