09.10.19 / When to employ?

This month I’ve had similar conversations with a number of design studio owners. The gist of it is: I’m busy. I need help. What should I do? Who should I employ?

Deciding to employ someone is a big step at any level. It will double the size of the studio for a solo-operator, rapidly increase the capacity of a small design team and may completely change the dynamic of a larger team.

There are many options to weigh up. The process is further complicated because what's right for one studio may not be right for another – there is no formula to follow. The skill is in assessing the level of competence best suited to a studio at that time.
