Episode 16: Attract top employees with the ‘eco-system’

Hiring new staff is never easy. You can put a heap of time, effort, and money into creating a job ad and trying to get it in front of as many people as possible. Maybe someone will share it with a friend, or will know the perfect person for your business, but nothings certain. It could be a timing problem, or that the right person just doesn’t happen to see your ad, but when you can’t find a good candidate it can be devastating for confidence, it could end your search and put you off hiring completely.

Sometimes giving up can seem like the best option, but there is a better way. If you go out fishing to get something for dinner but don’t catch anything, what are you going to do? Just not eat? No. Find a new way to solve your problem. Go to the seafood store on the way home and buy some fish. So when it comes to hiring, have you really tried everything? Have you tried creating an ‘eco-system’ to attract the best type of tradespeople to work for your business?

In this episode you’ll find a new way of getting the best type of people to work for your team. An ‘eco-system’ acts as a hook for getting people to want to work for your business. It’s a low-cost method that will complement your current hiring system. It’s a small price to pay for the rewards that having a team of rock stars can bring you. Some of the best employees may be working somewhere else but that doesn’t mean they couldn’t be happier on your team.

  • A new way to attract top quality trades people to your team
  • A better environment for your current employees
