  • What Do You Expect?

    You only need a simple, three point scale to evaluate job applicants as well as the performance of your present employees: “Will not meet expectations” or “Is not meeting expectations” “Will meet expectations” or “Is meeting expectations” “Will exceed expectations” or “Is exceeding expectations” Before you can do this though, you need a clear understanding […]

  • Are you using the right words?

    Does your recruiting message appeal to the people you want to hire? If you want to hire older employees, your ad needs to include something like “maturity and responsibility rewarded and appreciated.” If you want young people, try “energy and enthusiasm are better than experience.”

  • When you help your people get what they want…

    They’ll help you get what you want. That’s why you should train them so well that they can get a better job elsewhere. Really. I’ve heard too many managers and supervisors say: “Why train them when they’ll just leave?” I always reply: “What happens if you DON’T train them and they stay?”

  • Did You Ever Stop to Realize…?

    If you had a chance to think about it, you’d realize that, whenever you hire a $10.00 per hour employee, it is the same investment as if you were to buy a $350,000 house! (Your monthly cost would roughly be the same; 40 hour employee = $1,600/mo. wages; 30 year mortgage loan payment = $1,600/mo.) […]

  • Exit Interviews vs. Stay Interviews

    Exit interviews are about the organization (what it needs to do to improve its hiring process or employee management/retention practices). They are about employee separation. Stay interviews are about the employee (that person’s needs, wants, and desires). They are about employee retention.

  • When will you abandon it?

    This is my spin on Seth Godin’s excellent blog post dated 2/1/17…   I trust you and your team have given up on typewriters and fax machines. (Half of your team probably doesn’t even know what they were.) And my guess is you have discontinued using “Help Wanted” employment ads in the local newspaper as your […]

  • Stop Telling Job Applicants What It Is You Want to Hear

    One of the most common errors perpetrated by interview training programs is exemplified by the excerpt below from a recent trade magazine article on hiring: A professional recruiter is quoted as saying: “Rather than ask: ‘How would you handle a busy day?’ say ‘Tell me about a time when you had a busy day and you […]

  • How many recruiters are working for you?

    Word of mouth works both ways. Do you know what people (employees, former employees, vendors, and everyone else who knows you) are saying about your company as a place to work? If not, the best way to find out is to ask. On the other hand, what if an applicant asked you for the names […]

  • Food for Thought…

    Dov Seidman, author of the book “How: Why How We Do Anything Means Everything,” posits: “The industrial economy was about hired hands. The knowledge economy was about hired heads. The technology revolution is thrusting us into ‘the human economy,’ which will be more about creating value with hired hearts — all the attributes like passion, character […]

    The key is to reframe your feedback as follows: Focus first on specific positives. (“The way you ______and ______ is perfect because _____________________.”) Then, start your next sentence with: “What would make it even better is if you were to __________. How about you give it a try, see what you think, and let me […]

  • Employee Question of the Week

    This week’s question is based on the idea of New Year’s resolutions. Instead of just setting business goals or resolutions for yourself, ask your people what you can do to help them improve their performance or meet their goals. (Example result: “My resolution/intent is to help Jane get promoted, be more efficient, etc.)

  • Start the New Year Off Right!

    The following is a short, self-administered, self-scoring test that can help any business owner or manager prioritize their intentions for 2017:   Do YOU say what YOU will do and do all that YOU say YOU will? Do you recruit, hire, and retain only high-quality staff? Have sales, customer satisfaction, and profits improved since you became […]

  • Where Have You Set the Bar?

    Poor performance is contagious. If you won’t deal with it, you will have to learn to live with it. (Luckily, the reverse is true too. Outstanding performers raise the bar for everyone.)
