Growing Your Business By Employing With Intent

Last fortnight, we dealt with how to grow your business by making sure that your employees grow with you – by providing them with a clear Position Description that detailed their goals, objectives and responsibilities, and performance measures, and by ensuring that you implement a consistent feedback system to review their performance.

This fortnight, we are going to look at how to employ people with intent. That is, knowing exactly who you need to employ, what their roles are and how these people will populate your complete business structure.

This means designing what your business will look like, from the beginning, and in doing this, knowing what your organisational structure will look like when your business structure is complete.

To do this, we are going to look at designing your Organisation Chart.

Growing Your Business By Growing Your Employees

Typically, small businesses employ a small number of people before they expand and grow.

As small businesses grow, the way they develop and grow their people will help them grow their business as well. So, the performance of those people in the early years is fundamental to the performance of the business as it grows.

Therefore your small business should attempt to ensure the best performance from your employees, and systems to help them grow and develop along with your business.

The best way of developing your employees is to implement an effective review system where they are shown what their key performance indicators are, where they can be given clear targets to achieve, and where positive but honest feedback can be given both ways so that they are helped to develop and that they provide feedback to you on how you can best use them in your business.

In order to implement an effective staff performance review system, you first need to have something against which to measure. Read More

Starting A Small Business – Hiring Your First Employees

Welcome to our series on starting your small business.

In the past weeks, we have looked at getting clear why you are starting your business, what you need to think about before you start, how you actually start a small business, preparing a feasibility check on your idea, and starting with a written business plan.

This week, we are going to look at hiring your first employees.

It doesn’t matter how big or small your small business is, at some point, probably sooner than you think, you will need to hire employees. They may be full time, part-time or even casual staff, but at some time in the early days of the business, you will realise the need to leverage your time to grow the business. There may be some skills that you do not have or simply more hands that you need.

In this article, we are going to look at some regulatory preparation, how to prepare your business for employees, how to interview them, and how to onboard them into the business.

Your Employees: Performance Reviews

What is the biggest asset in your business?

Your employees.

Good employees are valuable in any small business. Even if you don’t employ anyone right now, you will. Employees scale your business, doing what you alone cannot do.

Good employees can mean added productivity. They can mean experience. Good employees can help you grow because they become integral to how your business serves customers. Good employees make your business capable of growth because they do more work than you can, and they can be used to supervise and train even more employees as the need to hire continues with growth.

In time, good employees take over management, and you can finally achieve your dream of running your business – without fixing the nuts and bolts every day!

How do you build a team of good employees?

The Right People Make All The Difference

Whether you’ve only started your small business or have been operating for a while, if you are growth-minded, at some stage you will be thinking about, if not already brought in employees to help you do the work and grow your business.

Sometimes, you strike it lucky and you find people who are the perfect fit.

They work hard, the way you want them to. They are good at whatever you hired them to do. They even get on with you and everyone else in the business, and they get on with the customers.

If you are in that boat, congratulations! All you have to do is make sure they are happy working in your business.

However, most small businesses go through some difficult periods finding the “right” employee or employees. If you’ve ever had the “right” people working for you, then you know that the right people make all the difference.

So, how do you get it right all the time?
