How to get GREAT employees

Why is it that some managers seem to always find good employees? Why are those few managers so blessed and why do so many others struggle to find those good employees.

That answer is in the answer to this question: when do you start hiring your next employee?

What was your immediate response? Was it, as soon as I know someone is leaving? Was it as soon as we get the permission from the boss or HR ?

The real answer is, you start hiring your next employee as soon as you hire this one.

Yes, most of you agree. But how does this process work for you?

Each member of your team is dependent upon each other member of your team as well as upon the supervisors and managers of those teams. Each member is given value and responsibility based upon how their team culture is developed. And based upon how you encourage and reward your team is how your team grows and how you will find your next great employee.

Many managers think they will find good employees and great employees from the talent pool that is either offered via their company or through agencies they utilize.

But the really great employees come from the recommendations of your current employees. It is their constant accolades and banter that tell others how good a place your department or organization is to work for. Great employees are always looking to work for great managers and companies that will promote and encourage their success.

It is how you treat all of your current employees that will bring you additional great employees. It is the words your current employees use to describe their organization and manager that have others waiting for an opening. The new employees coming to your department are because of the people that you make feel valued.

There are numerous methods and tactics that will help you become a great manager, because great managers are made not born, are gleaned from other Great Manager articles, additional books and further training.

Where you will find your next great employee will be from your own staff and the recommendations they make to other top quality potential employees.

Study says… over 70% of all employees feel…

What are you employees feeling? Do you even know? Recent riots in many countries are exploding because governments have no clue their people are at a breaking point. What about you as a manager or leader? Do you know what your people are feeling?

Oh I’m not saying they are ready to riot! But a recent study found that over 70% of all, yes ALL employees did not feel valued.

That is an incredible number. Over 70% don’t feel heard, don’t feel important, don’t feel like they matter. 

What are you doing different than all of the other managers you know that would make you stand out from all the other managers so that your employees feel valued?

And if what you are thinking is, oh I am an exceptional manager so I know my people feel valued, then your people are probably part of that 70%. Think about it. All of the other managers are thinking the exact same thing you are. I am the great manager …

But if you do not know what you are doing differently or you have not done a survey asking for that kind of input or information discreetly and your people are confident that it is a private survey then you do not have that information. Which probably puts you in that 70%.

Want to make sure that your people feel valued? Ask them. Invite their input without the possibility of discovery. Or better yet… sit down with each of them and invite their input without repercussions. That of course, if they really believe you. And don’t think a computer survey or email input will even be considered discreet. We all believe that our bosses can find out what we do on our computer. Make is discreet by you sending out an email asking that they complete the questions and print them out so that they drop them into a bin throughout that week so there is no possibility of them being discovered. 

Then and only then do you even have the hope that the true feelings of your people will come out.

I wish you good managing and that by doing this you will find another method for becoming a GREAT MANAGER.   or
