2016 is off to a great start!
January 26, 2016
In any business it's important to have even a minimal amount of planning in order to move your growth forward. By now, the budget for this year will have been completed, approved and already started to become "actual". It's excecution time now.
If your business plans have growth in them, that likely includes growing your team. In this budget you would have allocated enough funds for employee recruitment, retension, engagement and above all, employee fun. Remember too that when it comes to your employees, having enough in your budget for them only goes so far. You need to also budget your time to connect, communicate and engage them.
Just as you spend money on making sure you have a solid brand for clients and customers, you equally want a strong brand for your employees to want to work for. Build a culture that will keep your employees retained for longer. If they have to leave you and your brand and culture are strong, you may very well have past employees sending you new recruits.
Let 2016 be your best year yet in business! Continue your growth and keep building what both you and employees can be proud of.
My next post will talk about recruitment and how to get started. It's not complicated, you simply need a foundation in place to move forward with.
