Employment development and progression framework are all enticing qualities that can make candidates choose your company for a job, and when the opportunity is local, it provides even more of an incentive. Most people have long-term career goals, and your business could be the best place to start them on their way.
Small Businesses and Creating Jobs
In 2019, Forbes discussed how smaller businesses were better at providing local jobs than more established ones. More inclusive job creation strategies will be key to attracting new staff in today’s more modern, post-pandemic climate. Most people have enjoyed the freedom of remote working, and as small businesses grow, they may be more inclined to offer flexible working in order to entice and retain employees. Professional development should be a core priority for all businesses, but small businesses tend to care more about the local community, benefitting the people and the economy.

Sometimes, local people just need a chance to enhance their own skills and develop new career progression opportunities. Not everyone has the same start in life or chances that others have, and are therefore ignored by employers looking for skilled staff. There are traineeships that these individuals can join, such as the Kickstart Scheme, which helps 16 to 24-year-olds on Universal Credit or those at risk of long-term unemployment. By taking a chance on these individuals, you can enhance their abilities as well as provide a possible career for aspiring individuals.
Hiring trainees can also bring new, innovative ideas to your business, enhancing your appeal and helping you grow as an established company. Other local businesses and the council will also notice your dedication to traineeships, improving your reputation and helping you attract more clients and employees.
In most local towns and in cities, networking events will be held by local authorities and larger businesses alike.

You can also stay on top of the latest trends in your industry, ensuring your business does not fall behind the competition. You may also encounter potential clients that can help your business grow and prosper.
People looking for a career opportunity may also be present at networking events, so you can get a feel for their needs and the exact opportunities they’re looking for.
