Whether you’re a start-up or one of the Apples and Amazons of the business world, achieving growth will always be a chief hallmark of success. But how do we maintain this growth? While ‘interim manager’ isn’t the first thought that comes to mind, we’re about to explain why maybe it should be. Carry on reading for three occasions you should consider hiring an interim manager.
- There is a significant staffing gap
It’s never ideal when you’re in the middle of a seismic project and a key member of the team decides to pursue pastures new. Rather than go through the hassle of finding a new full-time employee, why not hire an interim manager who can jump straight in and keep up operational momentum? This is a win-win, as it means you can search for a replacement executive while maintaining business as usual. Even better, you may decide to keep your interim hire for the full-time position should they be a good fit.
- Your business is undergoing rapid growth
Interim management provides fast and effective leadership to help your business reach its next milestone. This is especially advantageous during periods of rapid growth when your team may need an extra hand (and specialised knowledge) to keep up with evolving demands and meet looming deadlines.
- You need a fresh perspective
Sometimes a new perspective is the only solution when it comes to solving a problem at work. This is especially true in situations where your team is very small or close-knit as it can create a somewhat echo-chamber environment where new ideas are no longer being generated.
Hiring an interim executive who can bring in fresh perspectives and implement necessary changes to help you address any pain points can make a world of difference to your company’s growth and development.
