Human Resources

Small Business Human Resources

Are your human resources fully skilled and trained? Are they all working together towards your company's goal with optimum productivity?

Is the environment one in which acceptable standards have been set, effectively & regularly communicated to all employees, with your employees being held accountable? 

Are your employees motivated and inspired to achieve or are they just doing enough to get by because it’s their job?

Some of the most successful businesses are continually optimizing how they can make the most of the resources that they have. This will often be the difference between the businesses that thrive, survive or close down. Any business’ greatest resource is their human resources. How are you making sure your company culture inspires your employees and holds them accountable to produce at a high level?

- Chris Nesbitt, Managing Partner

Does any of this sound familiar?

  • You find yourself trying to work around your employees as it relates to what they want to do or how they want to do something.
  • If they are not willing to do something or they simply can’t do something the way you want it done, you accept the result that is provided and complain you just can’t find good employees who want to work.
  • Business isn't as fun as it used to be. Over the years, it has become more difficult. As much as you'd like to enjoy coming into work and running your business, you really don't.
  • The employee morale is not a good as you think it should be.
  • The same issues seem to keep occurring over and over again with your team or individual employees. You'd like to know how to stop those issues and avoid having to deal with them much in the future.
  • You hire people on a spur of the moment because you need that position filled quickly with very little thought as to what the position really calls for.
  • You assume that your communication is very good because everyone sees each other every day and work very closely with each other.
  • You assume that no one would take advantage of you because you have been so good to them through the years and believe everyone is doing all they can for the benefit of the company.
  • You tolerate their moods and lack of productivity because they may be just having a bad day. You don’t believe that their attitude has much to do with work and they should know that they are doing a good job for you if they get their paychecks on Friday. In the absence of good direction, employees will create their own directions and it becomes difficult to manage because everyone is going a different way.
  • You have some policies and procedures for your employees but know that they should be updated and improved upon.
  • You do not have a human resource department or even a full time human resource manager and aren't really sure what type of policies should be in place.

If any of the above sound familiar to you, the human resources and company culture elements of your business are probably not as good as they could be.
