Business Employee Challenges and HR Solutions
Hiring, training, motivating and retaining employees is a challenge in all businesses.
The most common challenges for business owners include…
- Having enough quality employees applying for the position
- Deciding if they will work out in the role, long term
- Identifying attitudes in the interview, without waiting a few months
- Training them, knowing if they are a good learner
- Motivating them to work as hard as you do, without supervision
- Having them take full ‘ownership’ of their role and systems, that frees you up
These are the areas our clients have asked for assistance with over the years and what our services provide systematic solutions for.
The whole topic of employee management is essential to master with growing your business, especially if you’d like the choice to be able to take two month holidays regularly during the year, completely worry free.
You own a business and employ people because you want a better lifestyle and your path to ‘freedom’ of choice is through building a great team from your employees.
With our mentoring and systems, you’ll be able to set your business to operate smoothly with your employees running it for you, even if you’re not at work for months.
That may seem hard to imagine from your current position, however that outcome is definitely achievable.
Our belief is, working should be optional in a business with 8 to 12+ employees, to enjoy a freedom lifestyle.
The Benefits of Learning about People
Business is all about skills with people when you think about it because…
Customers are people
Employees are people
Suppliers are people
There’s a lot to learn in business about people, which you could spend years doing, or tap into the wisdom of someone who already has.
For over three decades Tim Stokes, the founder of Profit Transformations has developed people skills through personal growth and leadership development.
His passion for learning was instilled after having an employee in his first business (in 1987) who stole his tools, hurting his business financially.
In hindsight, it was a great experience because it motivated Tim to become exceptional at reading people in minutes to determine attitude and importantly, trustworthiness.
There are people in the world who are very untrustworthy and there are people who are extremely trustworthy. Identifying what a person is within minutes is a wonderful skill to have.
Having these people skills leads to an increase in your confidence with employee related decisions, and savings of potentially thousands by avoiding poor employee-related outcomes.
