36: Simplify Your Business Model to Make it More Scalable to Deal With Skilled Labor Shortages

Are you struggling to find the right talent to support your business? Are you finding that you’re constantly training new employees, only for them to leave shortly after? If so, you’re not alone. In today’s competitive marketplace it can be difficult to find and retain top talent, the pandemic has exacerbated an already difficult situation. This week on Build Value By Choice, Nana will discuss how you can deal with these challenges. 


According to Statista, quality of labor is at number two behind inflation as top of mind concerns for business owners. 
Instead of making the requirements for your positions complex, why not structure it in a way that it’s less necessary to find highly skilled people, this allows you to open yourself to a broader range of talent. One way you can do this is looking at your business model and identify how you may simplify. This may mean reducing the number of products and services offered or streamlining operations and reducing the need for skilled labor. 
If you focus on delivering a standardized set of products or services that can be taught to employees, they can sell without your involvement. Also by standardizing your operations, you become more able to compete with your rivals. 



‘What alternatives have you tried to deal with the problem?’

‘The whole is greater than the sum of the parts’ 

‘By bundling together complimentary products, you create a package that is more valuable’ 

‘It’s easy to transact, it’s repetitive, it’s needed, and it’s more valuable’
