Looking to build a loyal workforce? Here’s our top tips for success.

Outsource Your Hiring Process

Perhaps it is time to reconsider the way you hire. It takes a significant amount of time to advertise, screen and interview candidates, and even then there is no guarantee you’ll find a perfect fit for the role.

By entrusting us to seek out Australia’s best blue and white collar workers, you can focus on running your business. We value our clients, and we’ll take the time to get to know potential candidates. We don’t just check their work history, we also consider how they might fit into your team, their personality, career goals and much more. With access to a large database of candidates, we aim to find the best possible person for the role so that they can excel in their role from the very first day.

Roles with Room to Grow

Every staff member should feel as though they are a valued member of the team. No one wants to do the same work day in, day out with little appreciation shown for their efforts. This will lead to demotivation and potentially even burn out. If you want your staff to enjoy their roles and remain with your company for the long haul, you need to give them room to grow within their roles. This can be done in various ways, for example you might like to send them on training courses or give them the opportunity to try new roles under the guidance of a senior team member. If they prove themselves within that role, you can then consider a promotion. This will keep your staff interested in their work, and they’ll also form stronger bonds with colleagues. It’s a great way to boost productivity and workplace morale.

Keep an Open Line of Communication

Even if your staff are only temps/contractors, they still deserve to have a voice. Try to schedule regular group and individual meetings with your team members to give them an opportunity to open up about any concerns and bring them up to speed on the latest developments within your business. This will give you the opportunity to address any issues on the spot, helping to minimise disruptions and potential negative impacts on workplace morale. Your team members will feel more engaged with your business and trust will be established.

Be a Role Model

You should always operate in a professional manner by respecting company guidelines, safety protocols and personal boundaries.  By doing so, your employees will respect you and your business.

Reward Great Work

Every time a staff member goes above and beyond, or at the end of a big project, you might like to consider rewarding them with a team lunch or another type of reward. This will show that you value your staff and their accomplishments, keeping morale high and ensuring the next project gets off on the right foot.
