Changing the Course
Small businesses, ranging from 10 to 200 employees realize that a wrong person can change the course and trajectory of your business. This makes it critical to find the right person for your company. During this solo episode, I share thoughts about the importance of raising our standards and hiring the ideal talent for a business.
Finding the Right Person
It’s common to struggle in the hiring department in most businesses. The key is to find the right person and the right seat. This means having an employee that is not only good at performing the required skills, but also a good fit within the company culture. It’s good business to raise your standards and take the proper amount of time needed to locate the best employee. While searching — outsource work to contractors to meet short-term needs.
The Ideal Balance
Some businesses are set up to thrive as an online company, while others, myself included, have some level of our business in person. The workplace has been disrupted with some employees wanting to work from home, others wanting higher compensation for commuting to the office, and some are looking for a hybrid work solution. Businesses must find a healthy intersection between the well-being of employees and the well-being of the company. In this episode of the Intentional Greatness Podcast, I explain why I think remote employees need to operate at a 25% higher productivity rate and how businesses should consider adjusting benefits for their employees.
