As a partner, branch manager or business owner, there's one thing guaranteed to make your heart miss a beat. And that's a little envelope placed prominently on your desk. In the age of emails and texts, very little news is hand delivered but a resignation is still one of them.
How many of your staff will be thinking 'new year, new job'? Staff movement is to be expected but it doesn't have to be a black cloud over your business. A changing team gives you the opportunity to re-evaluate your business structure and expenditure.
David Hunt, Business Development Director at ARPM Outsourced Lettings Support, says a resignation is the perfect opportunity to consider outsourcing: "Loosing a valued member of a team is sad and it can be inconvenient. When you couple this with the recruitment scene - where it's increasingly hard to find experienced property professionals - you can understand why business owners start to panic. However, ARPM Outsourced Lettings Support is here to help. Our staff are recruited from a talented pool of property managers and agents, capable of upholding your own business standards and ethics. Delegating to a third-party suddenly seems plausible, even attractive. As well as offering a full property management service, we also offer standalone initiatives, like pre-tenancy administration and rent collection only. It's very useful to know that you can cherry-pick the services that fill a gap left by an outgoing member of staff."
And it doesn't have to be a like-for-like swap, continues Dave: "A manager might decide he doesn't need to replace a full-time employee with another working 9-5, or perhaps the flow of works peaks and troughs enough not to warrant a replacement member of staff at all. ARPM Outsourced Lettings Support offers agents flexibility; we'll work to your pace - whether that's five or fifty referrals a week. With us, there is no minimum and you only pay for the work we do. It's a very cost-effective way of managing budgets and resources."
