Getting The Most From Your Employees
Oct 9 @ 11:30 am – 1:30 pm

Our experience shows that the most common “dislike” of owning a business is “employees”. Many of the business owners we encounter report that their employees are not engaged, don’t care, are not driven, and make frequent mistakes.
Vital to the growth of any company, employees can also be the most challenging and scary undertaking of any firm; but especially the small to medium-sized businesses. Bad hiring decisions do happen. However, we have seen that by implementing a few simple changes a firm can drastically improve employee engagement and performance.

 

JOIN US for a lunch and learn at The Montgomery Country Club where we’ll lay out the top employee strategies for you, how to implement them, and the pitfalls to avoid. You will learn how to:

– Recruit and Hire the “Right” Team Members
– On-Board Employees
– Motivate Your Team Members – Engage Them In Your Success Plan
– Hold Employees Accountable
– Top Grade Under Performers
