As your company fires up for 2023, do you know what is on your agenda for the year ahead?
Do you know what will grow your business and take it to the next level where you, the business owner/manager, are excited and satisfied with consistent performance from your team? How will you turn your strategy into action where your company runs smoothly, your clients buy more, and your business profits? Think about people, process, and performance, and build a high-performing team where leaders and individuals are on the same page as you to go above and beyond.
The year has kicked off for KBA, where our team of professionals is reconnecting with our clients for 2023. The number one talking point with our clients is needing our help recruiting and training their staff to be great contributors. They want additional staff, and not replacements. They need help to build on the motivation created last year and, more importantly, help with better recruitment. They need more staff to grow, and they need them now. Does this sound like you? What is going to make your company stand out from your competitors, and why would someone want to come and join your company?
Hiring people who will be top performers as soon as they join your team is crucial to the success of your business, so it is worth spending as much time and effort as necessary to do it right the first time. However, many business owners and managers who have a lot on their plate find recruitment to be overwhelming and time-consuming and may rush into filling a role, which can result in a poor hire and major headaches down the track.
Staff turnover comes at a huge expense, so recruitment needs to be done right.
Take note of the following tips to ensure you recruit the best staff who will contribute to the growth of your business:
- Know the position you need to fill and develop a recruitment plan.
- Write a clear and specific advertisement.
- Be disciplined in your approach.
- Use the same interview guide for every candidate.
- Look for desirable behaviours, not just transferable skills or a specific previous experience.
- Be credible. Follow up when you say you will, and don’t keep that candidate hanging.
- Keep the process timely.

Not only do you need to hire the right people, but you also need to ensure that you induct them properly into your business and ensure you have a plan for them. What does success look like for them, and what does success look like for your company where both parties are aligned in a win-win scenario? You don’t want to spend all that money on recruiting them and then fail them through a poor onboarding process. Plan and be organised to introduce them to your team and train them properly so they feel empowered and see themselves playing an important part in the team. Ensure that they feel comfortable as a valued team member doing meaningful work that is aligned with company strategy and embedded culture.
Company culture is everything, and you need to look at ways to create better engagement across your company that creates a positive impact. With your new starters, be open and honest about how the company is performing and why you need them.
