Most companies fail to hire the people they need to elevate their businesses, because they fail to see a growing individual as valuable as another, who is a bit more established. Two words…wrong philosophy! The reality is, someone who is in the state of growth can be taught. Someone who is partially established wants to teach. Their willingness to learn is 55% less than another who is going through their stages of growth. That’s more than half. Now am I saying you can’t go out and recruit potential employees who are the best of the best? No, hire them; I’m simply trying to get you to realize that if 100% of your employees are top notch and the best of the best, you are limiting yourself to growth. Who’s really learning?
It’s highly important for business owners and CEO’s to realize that you need a proper balance. Some top notch, some that are somewhat the best, and some that need work. This is the real investment in your company’s tenure. Believe it or not, but the employees that are somewhat the best or need work, are the real potentials to keep your company growing. They’re your next supervisors, store/office managers, and branch leaders, simply because of their high willingness to learn.
Don’t make the mistake and pass up on an employee, because he/she lacks a particular skill set. The bright side of this is that it can be developed. Just as much as selling a product is a profit, so are your employees. The best companies, businesses, and corporations take work. The job, the clients, and your employees! Build upon them just as you’ve built your business, brick by brick. Every little bit matters…remember, you’re employees are your bread and butter! Your team is only as fast as your slowest person. Make each department know and understand that they matter.
-Keep in mind, that your employees are simply the heart of your business. They can make or break you!
