Entrepreneurs: Hiring & Admin Time

One of the biggest challenges for Entrepreneurs is how much time they have to spend on hiring, from administrative to talent acquisition activities. According to recent studies, entrepreneurs spend approximately 40% on administrative duties and talent acquisition. These tasks, while essential, often divert valuable time and energy away from core business activities. Moreover, the process of finding and hiring talented individuals can be time-consuming and resource-intensive, particularly for small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

Particularly when it comes to talent, finding qualified recruits can be time intensive as:

  • Start-Ups and Scale-Ups may not have the community brand recognition to attract talent.
  • Start-Ups and Scale-Ups may not have People & Culture team members (HR) to guide the hiring process.
  • Identifying where to post a job can be difficult with the number of options now available.
  • Upon posting a job, you may end up with applicants from around the globe, the country as well as Alberta, leading to vetting large numbers of resumes.
  • The position that is needed is not a full-time position, which can increase hiring time.
According to the Alberta Chamber of Commerce and Alberta Chamber Members, the impact of this on organizations includes the inability to tap into new markets, increases in the workload on existing employees lowering productivity as they are unable to fulfill core functions, and all of this impacts profitability.
