How to know when to get more employees and help from outside?

There are a few employees that companies and corporations need to function properly, without turning to bankruptcy in a few years. 

Increasing employees turnover:

If you notice an odd number of workers leaving, months after hiring them it’s time to ask yourself—or whoever owns the company—what the problem is; in some cases, the boss is the problem. Pay special attention for the number of employees who constantly avoid you (or the boss) whenever possible. 

In the work environment, inspiring fear in people does nothing for productivity and work ethic, and owners who would rather be feared than loved shouldn’t be surprised that nobody like them.

Avoid Burnout:

People who enjoy themselves at work are inclined to laugh more often, and willingly. One of the signs that your current employees are suffering is their lack of laughter. Employees who do not laugh may need an extended break – longer than the standard weekend break. Unhappy employees, science shows, are far less productive, and a number of people who dread working is a sign that you either need new employees or need to change your management skills.

No Applicants:

If you put an ad out and put the word out that you’re hiring… and nobody’s biting… you may need to rethink your offers or benefits packages. As employers’ struggle to attract new employees, a lot of businesses often offer higher salaries and better perks.

Not Enough Diversity:

Take culture, race/ethnicity and gender out of the equation. One of the signs your business needs more employees to do their job… is to hire employees with as wide and distinct skill-sets as possible. Employees who want to continuously learn are a Godsend, as they continually find new ways for improving your bottom line.
