As a business owner as well as a talent specialist, I’ve been asked this question countless times; “When do I know it’s time to hire staff?” I can answer this very simply by comparing your business to a wardrobe and your staff to your clothes. “When do you know it’s time to buy new clothes?” Is it because you need a new image? You need a new outfit for an important occasion? You are trying a new sport and need the required kit? Your current clothes are losing their quality as they’re being worn too often? You have far too many occasions to go to for the number of clothes you have? You are using the same pair of shoes for work, running and the beach?
From a business perspective I have put it into 6 simple signs that you can look out for to know that you’re ready to take the plunge and hire.

You are probably asking yourself what the Gig Economy is. There are various answers that we’ve uncovered but according to Forbes Magazine it’s a model to describe where the future of work is heading.

Although buzzwords such as contingent workers, on-demand workers, and short-termers have been around for a few years, never before have there been so many people creating a network of talent hubs throughout the world by being “nonemployer” businesses, i.e. they only employ themselves. It is now possible to sell thousands of products without needing any workers to create or distribute it. According to a recent study done by Elance oDesk, the American workforce is now 34% freelance. A startling number considering this works out to about 53 million people.
