Today’s episode continues our focus on hiring. This has become a monumental challenge right now for business owners who are feeling the pain in many ways. Small business owners everywhere are losing team members to other jobs that promise higher wages. The truth is that even without paying significantly higher wages, there are creative ways to attract and retain A-players to your team. Let’s take a closer look!

Don’t forget to join us next week as we celebrate Episode 200! We will feature a very special return guest to the podcast who expounds further on hiring as she teaches us how consistent, small steps can lead to BIG changes in your business. Don’t miss it!

Profit by Design is a Tap the Potential Production in collaboration with Small Business Consulting Group.


Show Highlights:

  • The value in intangible perks, those things that your team members value beyond money, like opportunities for advancement through training, business education, and hands-on experience
  • How even entry-level roles can be greatly enhanced through systemized training and checklists
  • The key question to ask when bringing any team member into a new role: “What does success look like in this role at the end of Year #1?” (This indicates the direction in which your training for them should go.)
  • Why building confidence in a new team member is the key to enabling them to think on their own, problem-solve, and work independently
  • Why it is essential to improve your “flow” and decrease chaos in your work culture (This element is crucial to retaining A-players!)
  • Never be afraid to ask your team members for suggestions on improvement; this makes A-players feel that their opinions matter and are valued.
  • Why understanding how A-players think and respond will help your recruiting efforts align to attract them (Our upcoming FREE Livenar can help!)
  • Why opportunities for training and development in technical skills, leadership, and personal growth WILL attract and retain A-players
  • Why it’s important to lay out clear opportunities for advancement and specific time frames to “move up” (Our Dream Manager Program and Leadership Boot Camp can help!)
