With 2017 just on the horizon, many business owners are looking to make the next year one of their biggest and most successful. The problem with that is it takes risks. Call it what you like chutzpah, moxie, or just plain guts, to get a different result, you've got to be willing to put yourself out there and do something you've never done before. It reminds us of a quote that the comfort zone is a great place but nothing ever grows there. Here at Assignment Allies, we believe in change. Not just for the sake of it, but for the sake of growth. If you continue to do things the way they've always been done, you're going to keep getting the same result and ultimately get left behind. This posts seems like it's getting filled with inspirational cliches but trite or not, these adages are tried and true. That's why in the coming months, Assignment Allies is going to do something we never thought we would or at least not so quickly. We're expanding our outsourced office management to include staffing resource management for small to mid sized businesses, we call our new off shoot, Automate, and it's going to be your virtual staffing solution.
Much like why Assignment Allies was created to fill a need for quality administrative assistance at an exceptional price, Automate was cut from this same cloth. Too many staffing companies charge exorbitant up charges that can range from 25-75% of the person's salary. For numbers people, that means if you're hiring a field tech and you want to pay them $15.00/hour, you'd be paying anywhere from $7,200.00 - $21,600.00 in fees to the staffing company alone. in addition to the person's salary. For many small and even mid-sized businesses this price is simply unattainable. So what do you do when you need to find quality help but don't want to pay the up charge or don't have the time to keep scouring LinkedIn or Indeed? You Automate. This new service will be available in the Spring of 2017 and we can't wait to roll it out.
Automate will help you to outsource your HR to Assignment Allies. We find qualified candidates for you to interview and you can decide to hire them directly for a small finders fee or we can put them on our payroll and you pay a monthly service fee based on a percentage of their salary. You will then receive weekly time sheet reports saving you time and money. We worry about paying payroll and tracking time so you can get back to running your business. It really is Auto-magic! (sorry we couldn't resist)
Truth time. We were scared to make the leap, to get out of our comfort zone and try something different. But we recently read an article that encouraged you "to do it scared". Whatever it is, embrace the fear, embrace that it may not work out, embrace the uncertainty and do it anyway. Some of the best inventions, ideas, and businesses terrify the owner. But another great cliche is courage is not the absence of fear, but the ability to continue in spite of it. So do it scared. But if you don't want to do it alone, give Assignment Allies a call so we can do it together.
