Perfect Your Staffing Partnerships

Posted on June 6th, 2016 by Debbie Squier

Every day, companies determine their priorities, sometimes without knowing it by where they expend their resources.

It had been said that you can determine what is important to an individual by looking at their schedule and their checkbook. Checkbooks aren’t used much anymore but the axiom is still relevant. People spend money and time on things that are important to them.

The same holds true in companies.

Perfecting Staffing Partnerships

While many organizations spend a lot of time and money on their product, their branding and messaging and their IT systems; it appears the most successful companies also focus on their people.

In Direct Selling we leap to thinking about our independent distributors and, while our field organizations are hugely important; the great companies know this includes their employee base and staffing partnerships.

Questions Used To Form Good Staffing Partnerships

Here are some good “people” questions to ask yourself:

  • Can you define your culture so that you can bring people into your organization that will fit culturally?
  • Do know if you have the right people in the right positions in your organization?
  • Have you ever used any Leading Edge Assessment tools to evaluate your talent?
  • Do you truly know who the achievers are in your organization?
  • Do you know what job metrics are most important to measure in the individual positions on your team to maximize overall
  • shareholder /stakeholder value?
  • Do you measure and bonus employees based on things they can control?
  • Do your employees fully understand how their role and function impacts the overall performance of the company?
  • Do you retain good employees?

If you answered yes to these questions, we would say you’re well on the way to filling the seats on your bus in a manner that Jim Collins in “Good to Great” suggested.

If you couldn’t answer these questions, it’s not too late!
