Do you know what a business strategy is?

A business strategy is a plan, a decision, a choice, and a guide used to benefit your company.  The benefits are measured by terms of: success, profits, popularity, and growth.  A business strategy must be very well-defined, so it can be implemented properly and display positive results. As a company grows and evolves, these strategies should be regularly evaluated. There are two kinds of strategies that business challenges typically fall into. 1 – Theoretical Strategies: strategies that come up while brainstorming.  They are not yet implemented. And they involve a wide range of outcomes. 2 – Practical Strategies: the strongest theoretical strategy that is selected for implementation during the brainstorming sessions. It’s important to have a clear vision.  When focusing on executing a single strategy, success is much greater.  Strategies help improve areas of business that need more work. Benefits of strategies: – Profits will be maximized – Cash flows will be smoother – Resources can be used more effectively – Employee productivity will improve – Customer perception will improve Always remember…strategies should change with your business.  They should also reflect the mission and goals of your company. rsz_2018-headshotActionCoach-logo

Best Onboarding Process for New Hires

Employees leave the workplace for many reasons, some that can be resolved if the new hire is set up to succeed from the start.  That is why the onboarding process is so important. Here are some helpful ideas you can start implementing right away in your business: 1 – Contact the new hire before they start.  Make sure someone is reaching out to them between their accepted offer and their start date.  Perhaps even something as small as having their new manager call and give a brief introduction.  Or have HR email them a simple reminder of their start day/time with first-day instructions.  Either of these can help the new hire feel they made the right choice. 2 – Set up a portal for the new hire.  Give them online access so they can start learning about the company or fill out important forms before they start.  You don’t want them to spend their entire first day filling out paperwork. 3 – Good first impressions will make their first day memorable.  Take them on a tour of the building.  Introduce them to other employees in the same department.  Have their desk ready with everything they need and maybe a small welcome package.  Schedule a lunch with their new manager. 4 – Assign them a mentor who works in the same department.  This gives them a go-to person in case they have questions, comments, or concerns.  Make sure the mentor demonstrates leadership skills. 5 – Set defined expectations.  Ensure the new hire knows his/her new responsibilities and is familiar with the company’s vision/goals.  Communicate clearly with the new hire and make sure their manager checks in with them often to see how things are going. rsz_2018-headshotActionCoach-logo

Can you sell open opportunities to top-talent job seekers?

If you’re looking for top talent for your company, you will need to stand out from your competition and make a great first impression.  In most cases, you have a limited amount of time to sell your opportunity to a job seeker, so how can you entice someone to join your team? Have an elevator pitch prepared.  That’s right, it’s not just for job seekers.  It’s also for employers who need to impress quality workers.  Your pitch should be no longer than 1-minute in length. Focus on the top selling points to keep job seekers engaged and excited. Here are a few things to add to your pitch:
  • Share any career growth opportunities.  What does that look like at your company? Many job seekers don’t have a way to grow within their current companies, so they look elsewhere.  Tell them how you invest in your employees.
  • Explain your employee benefits.  Share information about healthcare, vacation time, employer-provided education benefits, and any other benefits that might put your company first on their list.
  • Brag about your company culture.  If you have an amazing culture and positive employee morale, brag about it.  Share stories of past parties or upcoming events that will make the job seeker want to be a part of your company.
Have your elevator pitch ready at all times.  You never know when you might run into someone who’s perfect for your company.  Maybe even have it typed up in a one-page document that you can share via text or email.  When you hire the right individuals, your business will improve productivity and profitability. rsz_2018-headshotActionCoach-logo
