If you want to drive growth, boost your team’s skill set and ensure you have enough high quality talent to manage time-consuming complex tasks, then a managed workforce could be a game changer. We explain how a new way of managing talent is helping startups become industry players.
FROM STARTUP TO UNICORN – AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN
Building a business is one of the most rewarding things you can do. It’s also one of the most challenging. It’s a learning process that usually involves all the key staff scrambling to master every element of the business, while you race to get your product ready for market. And that means being fast, flexible and (sometimes at least) having fun in the process.
But ‘startup’ is not a sustainable state. Eventually a business needs to scale up. And with success comes new challenges.
When it’s time to scale up do you push your team to breaking point? That can help drive new business but there’s a limit to what your core team can do and you risk high rates of burnout and churn. You want to retain your A team and recruit more, specialized talent. And you can’t do that unless your key personnel are able to focus on what they do best.
OUTSOURCING: THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE CONFUSING
Outsourcing to low cost staff can help you do more with your company’s resources. But ordinary outsourcing has limitations. There’s no guarantee that you will hire talent with the skills and experience to get the job done promptly and efficiently. Plus, there could be language barriers, and a lack of coordination between outsourced workers.
In some cases, your team may even end up expending more energy managing outsourced staff.
Scaling while maintaining quality is a specialized process. Ideally, you need one point of contact with the experts who can produce value, not extra work, from outsourcing.
BUILDING A TEAM, NOT JUST A COLLECTION OF INDIVIDUALS
Enter the managed workforce. You get access to top talent, without the administrative hassle of recruiting, training and managing the team. After all, you’re looking to streamline growth and free your inhouse team up to keep innovating.
Werkit’s managed workforce solution recruits highly skilled talent, with tertiary degrees in advanced technical subjects, such as engineering, accounting and computer science.
However, the solution is about more than matching talent to the most suitable technical challenges.
For more advanced tasks, like managing training data, you need to ensure the whole outsourced team is working effectively, with good coordination to ensure that overall resources are used as effectively as possible.
SPECIALIZED TEAMS FOR SPECIALIZED OPERATIONS
Technical, complex functions need skilled workers who already understand the industry jargon and have the technical skills to adapt to changing work requirements.
Werkit outsources, trains and manages the specialist teams that organizations need to outsource even complex tasks, without adding another layer of administrative hassle to their processes.
We quickly build a purpose-driven team and train them to use your tools and systems. It truly is like an extension to your existing business, with but with a single point of contact to manage the team. That means you get to scale up and drive innovation without installing a whole new HR function in your business.
So if you want your A team to keep playing their A game, you need an efficient and effective way to manage the workload while driving growth.
It’s simpler than you think. Get in touch with Werkit for an outsourced solution that delivers real growth.
