Managing your Staff

Are you a good leader?

Operating your own business and also controlling the staff, is often compared to being like the conductor of an orchestra – everyone is playing their part,  however sometimes the musicians are not keeping the beat, and the music sounds out of tune!   Who is to blame - normally it is the Conductor - not the Musicians?           

Are you spending too much time solving staff issues, instead of being able to concentrate on improving and growing your business and your profits? Many owners and managers find that successfully managing staff can be one of the most frustrating of business functions.            

How well are you managing your staff?

As a business owner or manager, your major challenge is get you and your staff to play “the same sweet music”.  In order to achieve this you need to ensure that your “players” are happy and motivated, as well as competent and well trained, so that you can all operate effectively as a team.  

Staff turnover – a wasted growth opportunity

  • Have you had to terminate the employment of a staff member because they were not performing their job well enough?
  • Do you regularly have members of your staff choosing to leave your employ?  
  • Each time you lose a staff member the costs of replacement and the time taken to train the new person impacts on the quality of your business, as well as your profits.
  • Pay or salary issues are rarely the real reason why people leave their jobs – often it is just because of poor staff management by their manager.

Are you an Employer of Choice?

Does your business have a reputation of being a great place to work? As a business manager, you need to know the factors that impact on staff turnover rates, and understand what motivates your staff and affects their productivity. If you want to run a successful company you need to realise that people are your most valuable asset and to achieve success you need to have efficient staff management policies and processes.
