The 5 Biggest Staffing Challenges SME’s Need to be Ready (and have a plan) For

Hello and welcome to Episode 191 of the People Powered Business Podcast!

In today’s episode we are discussing the 5 biggest staffing challenges (or you may want to view them as opportunities) that every small to medium sized business needs to be ready, and have a plan for in 2024.

The reality is the staffing landscape is changing, both in Australia and abroad, and we are very much returning to a global workplace again.

If we are not ready for these changes and challenges, we will be left behind.

I firmly believe small to medium sized businesses have a huge opportunity right now, if we are ready and being ready means having a plan.

Today we are discussing what is changing and why, the five biggest challenges I see coming and what we should do next.

There is no doubt that the pandemic has moved the world of work forward 20+ years – a controversial opinion some might think, but something I have thought to be the case since early 2020 – I knew then we were always headed this way, and there would be no going back.

In addition, many experts predicted that international travel would not return to pre pandemic levels until 2024, and I think a lot of people have the travel bug and 2024 will mean lots of leave and people taking extended breaks.

Add in changes in expectation about where, when and how people work – we need to be ready for change.
