Company Culture Every company has a distinct culture. People often describe theirs with words like honest, ethical, hardworking, fun or perhaps some negatives like under-achieving, poorly managed or slow. Many people overlook characteristics of their company that most definitely affects culture like accountability systems, hiring and training capability, teamwork, competitiveness or even how safe people feel expressing their opinions. Whatever your culture is, overt time it will attract people that fit it and fail to retain those that don’t. We’ll start the day with a discussion on how important a healthy culture is to your success. All of the other topics for the day have significant impact on improving your culture so this opening topic is designed to “set the table” for the rest of the day
Hiring Best Practices In the staffing industry (and beyond), the overall success rate, defined as “what percentage of all my hires are still with me and meeting or exceeding standards after one year” is shockingly low. Of course many people still have people around after a year that don’t meet standards and we’ll talk about that later in the program but in this section we will cover topics like People Pipeline, Assessment Tools, Interviewing Technique & Questions, Onboarding, really all components of an effective hiring process
Establishing Sales & Recruiting Standards It may (or may not) shock you that very few staffing companies have formally established production standards that they expect their sales and recruiting staff to hit. Because not many have established these, it’s all too easy to overlook or be indecisive with people that are not producing enough to earn their keep. We’ll explore how you might define production standards in your company and ideas on how to manager them. Tom will have some examples to share
Accountability Systems in Your Company Most companies have average to weak accountability systems and this can be one of the most important areas to work on improving. What is the use of setting standards on activity, production or behavioral expectations if you are weak or haphazard at holding all accountable? We’ll cover several aspects of this including components of effective systems, leadership 101, using effective feedback systems, getting more comfortable & effective with productive conflict and how much better your company will be if you can improve in this area
Effective Compensation Systems the final topic of the day will be a review of what good compensation programs look like, compensation best practices and how to evaluate the effectiveness and affordability of your compensation plans. Tom will have examples to review
