One of the most challenging aspects of running a business is managing your staff. This is because when managing, you’re working with people and their personalities, rather than completing a certain task or technical function. Each person you manage comes with his or her own emotions, motivators, and beliefs, so there’s no one-size-fits-all management practice that works with all of your employees.
Following various social media posts, I notice that one of the most discussed topics in our industry centers around finding reliable employees and getting them to stay. Members of the various groups mention how they use the different recruiting websites or how they target certain age groups, such as over 55 or college students, etc. Most BSC’s report that despite today’s uncertain business climate, with unemployment still widespread, they still struggle to secure reliable employees.
