Need reliable, hard working, driven employees?

During a class visit at Rylee’s Ace Hardware in Grand Rapids, MI, I had learned some great techniques on getting good employees through Matthew Jamrog.

There are 3 steps in getting great employess:

Know how to interview – “10% of employees will cause 90% of your headaches”

  • 1st – have a set of core questions to ask during every interview
    • Examples: Biggest Accomplishment? Best second chance given? Why do you want to work here?
  • 2nd – Ask questions that have follow- up questions
    • Examples: Why was that your favorite job? What about made that accomplishment so important to you?

Feeling of Importance = Motivated Employees

  • give them responsibilities –
  • let them know when they do a great job! –

Let them know when they fall short of expectations BEFORE the problem gets worse

  • “I noticed you were a little late today. Is everything ok? Is there something I can do to help?”
  • Everyone wants to make their boss happy –
  • if you make your employees feel important, give them a sense of belonging, appreciated and like they are accomplishing something = generates loyalty!

In simple terms abide by the golden rule “treat others they way you want to be treated!”
