Your most valuable resource isn't the product or service you sell, the processes you have developed, or the technology you use. Your most valuable resource is people. It is people that drive the sales, optimize the processes, and solve problems for your customers.
Your business has grown into a thriving enterprise and that meant adding more people. Taking care of those people now takes up a lot of your time. Instead of focusing on strategic priorities, you find yourself trying to find good people to hire, worrying about staff morale and employee retention, sorting out benefit plans, negotiating contracts, and handling employee relations.

Have you thought of bringing these young people into your company in between school years or for a coop term? It’s an extremely valuable and inexpensive way to recruit, train, and maintain talent for employers. These young and motivated students bring fresh new attitudes to the workplace. They are optimistic about their future careers and are eager to make a positive impact for their employers. Introducing enthusiastic guys and girls into your company can have a positive effect on morale and encourage a culture of learning.
A lot of companies are very vocal about the fact that they do not have, nor do they need a performance management system. I agree – performance management is not a necessary evil in all companies. If you hire and manage well, you may never need this process at all, but now let’s change the name — Feedback moments; Employee feedback meetings; How are you doing meetings, Chat sessions…I could go on about nomenclature.
I recently read an article on manners and it had an impact on me so here I go piggybacking on that topic. As an HR professional, I often work with individuals/teams on appropriate professional behavior or team dysfunction. This is not an everyday occurrence but happens nonetheless – manners on the other hand are a different story. Good manners should be habit for everyone, especially when interacting in business.
