It’s important to know why something is being done in your business. Any strategy, project, or task needs a reason as to why time should be devoted to doing it; this also needs to apply to bringing on a team member and delegating.
Ask yourself, why is it important to hire someone? Write down all of the reasons why adding a specific role is needed. Seeing it written down will help it make sense, and it will help you determine where they can make an impact and what you can delegate to them.
The other question to ask yourself is what value will hiring for the role bring to your business? What value will a new team member bring from a time and money standpoint? The position should help you grow your company and bring in more money. Hiring is an investment, so it’s essential that you know the value in advance.
If you know the why and value of hiring, it will make the decision process easier. So, take the time to do this preliminary work when considering bringing on a new team member.
