Four Tips For Hiring Employees

Hiring an employee can be a big step for many  small  business  owners.  It  means the end of doing EVERYTHING yourself and passing off some of the work!

Four tips for hiring employees

In order to make the experience rewarding for both you and your employees there are a few things that every boss and leader should do…

  1.   Reward   people   for   a   job   well done.  Its  frustrating   working  for someone who enjoys all the financial rewards of the  efforts put forth by the  entire  team,  especially  if  they don’t  recognize  what everyone  has accomplished and contributed.

It doesn’t take much to acknowledge the effort of your  staff. It makes a HUGE  difference in the working atmosphere  when  you  take  a  few moments to acknowledge your team. People  like  to  know  that  they’ve done a good job.

   2.  Always provide a balance  between positive and negative comments. Your job as a leader is to recognize the talents of those around you and feed them with  the motivation  and positive energy to take YOUR ideas to  entirely  new  levels.  Help  them serve you better by building up their confidence… not tearing it down.

  3.  Step up and accept responsibility for your projects. At the end of the day if things don’t go according to plan, in my opinion, the  responsibility  falls onto the leader’s shoulders. Stand up and accept the responsibility should anything ever go wrong.

If your staff always bear the burden of projects gone bad, it will drag people down   and  destroy   your   working environment.  Start  contributing  to the emotional bank account of those around you.

If  you  acknowledge  the  behavior you want to see more of, you’ll start seeing more of it. Be  positive  and accept   some   responsibility   when things don’t go according to plan.

 4.   When you have good people it’s your responsibility as a leader to hold on to them. People with talent will take your company to entirely new levels but if they keep leaving, the growth of your company will be stinted.

People  with  skills  know  that  they have options. Hanging the carrot of a potential big pay day will only work for a certain  period of time. After a while it  wears off and they start looking  elsewhere.  The  last  thing you want is for them to end up with your competition.

So the moral of the story is find  good people, train them, treat them well, and your business will take off.
