Growing your business with new hires

If the new year could mean new hires for your small business, there’s a lot you must think about. Consider the following:

• job descriptions – Casey Wilson, Retail Industry Manage, asserts the importance of a clear, well written job description: “The position needs to be well defined in how it will contribute to the business’s growth and success. It doesn’t have to be complicated, but direct and to the point with the main responsibilities for the person.”

• Communicate your vision and mission

•Incentivize current employees
Your current employees may be a great resource for new hires. Some business owners, offer cash incentives to employees who refer qualified candidates. If those candidates become part of the team and stick around for a certain amount of time – usually a year – that referring employee gets a little something extra in the next payroll.

S/PHR Study Questions

Q. Can you define forced distribution?

A. In the forced distribution method (also known as forced ranking), the managers are compelled to force employee performance into a bell-curve system, with a top 10%, next 35%, next 45%, and the bottom 10% (similar to how many public school teachers rank students). In this system, most employees will fall into the middle of the performance spectrum.
