Finding and Keeping Good People – Your People Plan – HR, Team Building and Retention
One of the biggest challenges facing small business operators is how to recruit and keep good people. The people who work for you are your most valuable resource. They represent your business and their service and attitudes will affect your success in attracting and maintaining a strong customer base.
To build a loyal and effective team you must devote considerable time and effort to hiring, training and managing employees. Before hiring anyone, it’s important to clarify why they are needed, the type of person you are looking for and the job description. This is a concise outline of the tasks you expect carried out, including any special conditions they will have to work under.
We help you develop a job specification, a checklist of the skills, education, training, attributes and personal qualities required for a specific job. This is an essential tool for screening applicants. We can also work with you to craft and implement a people plan to improve your chances of long-term business success.
