Work Smarter not Harder in the Early Years Sector
Are you in the Early Years sector and are finding yourself juggling: processing your branches payroll, managing your nursery, keeping on top of your development reviews, preparing for Ofsted inspection, all whilst chasing children around? Well you can gain some of your precious time back to focus on some of these things, by undertaking one function. It’s another way to work smarter, not harder and that answer is outsourcing.
We know you may be rolling your eyes at hearing the word outsourcing but let us show you how powerful this way of working can be. We promise to offer insights on how outsourcing employees and functions can benefit your business, resulting in having more time to focus on your upcoming parent consultations or Ofsted reviews. So let’s take a look in a bit more detail.
You can’t do everything
Although you may seem like a super hero most days, sorry to burst your bubble, but that just isn’t the case when it comes to handling all these core business functions! If you are trying to be the leader, the marketeer, the payroll administrator, the HR administrator, along with the best story teller and play buddy, then it might just be the right time for you to outsource. When your attention is divided in too many ways, mistakes begin to happen and that isn’t on any Nursery Managers to-do lists!
Look into opportunities
It may be really alien, the thought of someone else doing something for you and don’t worry we understand that. Control is massive in business and it’s human nature for us to want to retain this, but when this is impacting the way you run your nursery it’s time to take a step back. That’s the blessing when working with an outsourcing provider like @Seamless, you don’t have to relinquish all of your power as you can remain in control. You’re kept in the loop, consulted about any changes, and told about any updates, you just don’t have to do the actual job – we’ll take care of the (boring) bits for you!
Functions to look into to
Some examples to work smarter and not harder would be to look into your key business functions such as your payroll, marketing and accounts. For you to be an expert in all these fields, whilst being keeping your nursery running smoothly can seem like an almost impossible task. Outsourcing can benefit your business in the sense that these core tasks are taken care of, giving you back your precious time to tackle your day to day tasks. From keeping petty cash up to date, to ensuring all your staff are on the right tax code, and scheduling your social media content, this can all be taken care of for you.
So what now?
Outsourcing can be a great way to bring qualified experts into your setting, without the cost of a full-time employee. You really get the best of both worlds. You remain in control of what’s going on without the stress of completing the tasks yourself, you can just sign them off – how bliss! Not only does it relieve you of these headaches, but you’ll also even find yourself with extra money in your budget and pocket along with extra time, it’s a win-win!
