How is everyone here? It has been a while since I have visited the Manager Tools website; I have listened to stacks of their podcasts, and learnt so much. I just checked and I have been a member for 3 years! WOW!
I work in Brisbane, and in fact some of my clients follow Manager Tools, so it makes for a great working relationship, as we speak the same language.
I run a small business consulting business, and employ a few staff. They have described working for me as ‘work utopia’ and that largely comes back to what I have learnt here at Manager Tools.
I however have a problem with recruitment. I am not very good at it, and I need some help. I am small business, and I do not have the $5000 to throw at recruitment agencies.
I have been burnt a few times in the past, which is a time consuming and draining experience.
I had this vision of employing mums, on a flexible basis, allowing them to work the hours they wanted, and providing them with heaps of support. For some people this worked out and others it did not – I have had issues with unprofessional behaviour, and disrespectful treatment of clients.
This is my fault I lack the skills in recruiting, and perhaps putting together a formalised training induction, and other areas I am unaware of and I need some help.
I am not exactly sure what I need. I think I need someone to look at my business and give me some structure to the recruitment process -> job advert->interview process->selection criteria.
Is there anyone based in Brisbane, Australia who can help me?
Please contact me if you can help.
