How To Attract, Engage and Retain Your Team To Grow Your Business
I'm delighted to have had my first appearance on iTunes!
I was featured on the Entrepreneurial Dynamite Podcast by Simon Davies of Access Success to talk through some of the challenges that business owners and managers often have around attracting, engaging and keeping their best talent.
Here's what Simon said about why he thought it was important to include this topic: on his podcast:
I can't tell you the number of conversations I've had recently with business owners, who've told me their biggest challenge to continued business growth is being able to attract, engage and retain the best talent available for a world class team.
There are no shortages of opportunity. In fact, there seems to be an ocean of business available. However, the big challenge is to continually build a team which can identify, realise and service the opportunities.
So, I'm delighted to bring you this week's episode of Entrepreneurial Dynamite where I explore these challenges with expert Una Doyle and find out how we can attract, engage and retain great talent to grow our businesses.
In this podcast episode we discuss these issues and I offer very practical things you can do around:
- If there really is a shortage of talent
- How to plug the 'leaky talent bucket'
- Whether it is better to recruit for skills, or aptitude and attitude - or take another approach
- How to ensure that the candidates you recruit are a good fit for the role
- What the most common cause of people leaving a company is and what to do about it
