This BBC Friday BBC Regulars Paula Willems & Rebecca Villareal will summarize and discuss the November [email protected] OXp workshops: “What Do You Do When You Need Help?”
Paula Willems, Sound HR Services (soundhrservices.com), & Rebecca Villareal, Northwest Business Training Center (nwbtc.com), will be presenting at these 3 November workshops on “keeping your clients happy when schedules spike to overload.”
Do you hire employees, temp-workers, independent contractors, or try to do it all yourself? Recruiting, recognizing and keeping quality employees, partners, and associates is not something that just happens on the fly. It takes planning and foresight. As entrepreneurs and professional service providers, we wear many hats, juggling client demand, marketing, deadlines, health, family life, balance, and much more. Some days the demands spike off the chart; clients have impending delivery dates, but invoicing needs immediate attention, the phone is ringing off the hook, emails are piling up, and maybe, on top of all of this, kids are home, sick with the flu.
Stephen Covey (The 7 Habbits) wrote that the first two success habits of highly effective people are 1) being proactive, and 2) beginning with the end in mind. Without a doubt, being able to pull together quality human resources when your schedule hits overload is one of those success keys that savvy business folks know they need to continuously cultivate and maintain. With this three-week series, we’ll learn about best practices for hiring, firing, partnering, and sub-contracting. Be prepared for success by planning ahead, safeguard your advantage by having your best people power available when your schedule needs it the most.
