Expanding to 5 employees for any business is a big step. Find out how to take this in your stride!

Expanding to 5 employees for any business is a big step and something of a milestone – it takes confidence in the growth of your company, it triggers all sorts of legal responsibilities for the business and the employees, moves you the owner, a step further away from just running the business, to now having to manage a team.

To be successful the business has to be ready, you have to be ready and there are things that will make life easier if you plan for it in advance.

This session is designed for businesses that already have a couple of employees but are growing and will soon need extra team members, it will help with deciding when is the right time,;

  • are you ready?
  • what will happen?
  • what do I need to do before hand?
