We all read about this company or that company where old product line sales have eroded over time and growth is slowing. That is not an uncommon issue for companies, as competitors fight to lower prices which causes the originator of the product to see profits decrease or even disappear altogether.
Maybe you’re running a company and thinking about re-vamping current products or services; or maybe you’re thinking you need to develop a new line of products or services that can help you establish your company in a new field. One that is more promising than the field you’ve worked in for years. This growth transition can be difficult and time consuming.
There are certainly problems that exist whenever you try to take on a bold new approach to product development, but also while working to maintain the share of market you hold with your current product or service. It is difficult to serve two masters, but sometimes it has to be done if you want to succeed in your mission of growth.
It can be tough for engineers and product development types from within your company to adopt a new approach to being creative problem solvers. You need to keep the people, who maintain your current line, but you also need to be able to attract the new talented people who can fit into your culture, and who can also help you find the next great innovative product.
WFA Staffing is in a position to be able to help you if this is a problem that keeps you awake at night or nags at you every minute you’re awake. Our very experienced staff of professionals would be happy to talk with you about what you want to accomplish, about the people that it would take, and about how we would go about finding those people for you.
You may feel you are being squeezed by outstanding circumstances, (economic, cultural, etc.) but you’re also saying to yourself, “I know I need to do something, but I’m just not sure how to find the right people”. That is often the feeling of employers who we contract with to find the right people with the right backgrounds; and sometimes without non-compete agreements that might preclude them from working for your firm. We also are in the position to retain these employees on the WFA Staffing payroll while they are 100% assigned to your firm if that is what will make your business successful.
If this kind of discussion would be helpful, no matter whether you’re at the very beginning of such an effort or have already gone some way down that road, give us a call or drop us an e-mail. As President of WFA Staffing, I’d welcome your call to me at 414-365-3651 or an e-mail to me at firstname.lastname@example.org . Is it time to restructure your company?
Tom Krist – President
