Proven And Practical Steps On Hiring And Employee Management

Employee headache?

You most probably have this as a small-business owner, at one time or the other.

He or she just walked out on you?
Leaving you in the lurch…

You will agree with me, it could be tough for small-business owners!

Or you just got rid of your unmotivated employee despite your laborious hiring process?
And you don’t even have all the time and high wages.

These are some of the challenges most small businesses go through.

Through this course, you will develop the needed skill to manage
this most delicate aspect of resources.

That is; The Human Resources capital.
That are motivated, productive and stay.

As a small-business owner, you know staffing and maintaining
 a motivated team is a major challenge.

Many of us, as small and medium scale business, resort to hiring on our own.

But unfortunately many do it the wrong way.
Many can’t manage their employees either.
 Because that hasn’t been your area.

Yet you can’t do without your workforce if you must do the job or even for a modest growth.

You don’t know how and who to employ?

You are overburdened.

You are not maximizing your profitability.

With hires that stay, you know your business could do more.

You have limited resources or little money to pay wages?

You also wonder how other small businesses like yours

have blossomed with low turn-over of staff.

You can’t even retain those you sweated so much to recruit, train

and have shown all the “care”.

I have seen all these as a small business owner in over 30 years

and in other small businesses I have studied.

It took some time to discover what went wrong and what should be the right approach.

The faults are from you and I.

(Our sentiments which becloud our objective judgment during the recruitment exercise;

especially if you are a solo business man)

The faults are also from the system and the procedures you put in place, 
if you have any at all.

Small business recruitment is more delicate than in the big and established organizations.

 Come with me...

At The End Of This Course

  • You will be able to design your own customized Human Resources (HR) System; a document that works for your small-business. UNIQUELY YOURS.

  • You will be able to build a team of motivated employees, who stay longer in your enterprise while assisting you to reach your business goals.

What Makes This Course Different?

It is based on my over 30 years’ experience as a small business owner in various industries;
and sieved from MBA background (since 1991.)
The course is therefore more pragmatic and shy of theories.

A hands-on experience!

It shows clearly the missing point between small business owners and their intending employees.
The marriage starts from there.

You will get to see the details in the course on how to go about this
foundational shift in thinking; to reduce high employee turnover.

Important for small businesses. But not as relevant to big organizations.

These lessons are shared here with the student, in a free-flowing manner. 

Much as in the easy style of my books on Amazon and Free YouTube lessons.

They are skills you can apply once done with the course.

Now, before you read on…
