How Do You Hire Employees?

Human Resources can be a very volatile area of any company, large or small. The smaller the company the more volatile. Let me explain.

 

In a smaller company an owner or executive hires a person to do some part of their post so it is crucial to get the right person who is skilled in, and can handle that duty and obligation. This is all due to the simple fact that you can do any of it, but, since you do such good work, the demand keeps going up and you no longer can do all of it.

 

If you are a craftsman that is running your new business all by yourself all the other functions of the company require your attention and prevent you from providing the services to your clients. You may need a treasury manager or sales person to do those functions so your company can grow while still allowing you to be that craftsman and handle the demand for your work. You simply need someone to take duties off your plate. You are literally establishing an organization.

 

Therefore it is EXTREMELY important to get the right person for the task at hand. If you don’t get the right person then you’ll end up still doing most of the post, or worse, have to do it over correctly. You have to be sure that the person would do as you would do, the way that ends up in your desired results, with the same amount of diligence and care that you would take in getting that desired result.

 

In a smaller company, as you grow, you are actually establishing the organization with the people you hire. In a larger company the organization is already established for the most part and that is why and how it became a larger company.

 

In a larger organization a person is usually hired to share a portion of the work load or be assigned a new position which is part of an expansion effort. This could be an additional person to handle an increase in demand for services, such as a bookkeeper. The amount of effort required to keep the books has exceeded what one person is capable of doing.

 

As the owner of a smaller company wanting to grow and become a large company, it is paramount to get the right people who care about what goes on just like you do.

Consulting or Contracting ?

I wanted to take the time to answer a question that I get very often – “ Why is the name of your company Nuts and Bolts Contracting and not Nuts and Bolts Consulting?

And by the way, that is a VERY good question. So I am going to share with you why it is that way, why we decided on Contracting instead of Consulting.

First let’s look at what the dictionary says about the two words.

Consulting means: To be employed or involved in giving professional advice to the public or to those practicing a profession whether an individual or company.

Contracting means: To enter into a contract to do work, for an individual or company, for the purpose of assessing and understanding the client’s needs and performing the work to an agreed upon and expected end result.

We are not in the business of just fact-finding and giving advice.

We are in the business of helping you discover the areas where you are experiencing stops or barriers with your company that prevent you from achieving your business goals, and then working with you to eliminate those stops and barriers as well as implement the correct systems to enable you to realize those goals for your business.

So you see, we do not just consult, we contract to deliver an exact end result that you need and want for the purpose of helping you organize and manage your enterprise with the end goals that you desire.

Whether in the areas of:

  • Finance
  • Operations
  • Human Resources
  • Project Management
  • New Business & Marketing
  • Organizational Development

Or if you are interested in:
