If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you develop the habit in little matters. Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude.
Congratulations! If you are reading this then you are either in the process of launching a new business venture or you are in the first year or two of business. It really is a cause for celebration that you have got this far. It isn't easy but you should know that you are not alone. Well over 90% of businesses in Ireland are SMEs, with only around 3% of those employing more than 50 people. So small business and entrepreneuship is vital to the Irish economy.
This does mean however, that regardless of what business sector you have decided to enter you are probably going to face stiff competition. As we have moved to greater unemployment new businesses have shot up across all sectors. Gaining competitive advantage in a tight market, particular one currently in recession is a significant challenge. It isn't enough to simply offer a good product or service. You will need to have excellent employees who are committed to your business, they will need to be managed and developed appropriately and they will need to be equipped with the skills to excel at their jobs. In essence you will need you and your team to reach peak performance..
If you are just getting off the ground you probably haven't even thought about any HR or management issues beyond having enough staff to run your new venture. That isn't surprising. But you should be aware that once you consider employing someone there are legal considerations. These include things like equal opportunities and non-discrimination, terms and conditions, payment of wages, holiday entitlements, and contracts. Consulting Excellence can provide the advice and support to make sure you have the right HR policies and procedures in place.
It isn't just about legal compliance though. More important to the performance of your business is getting the right people in to your team and ensuring that team work well together to deliver not just a good performance but a great performance.
You may not know what to do or how to go about employing the people you need to help you achieve your business goals. Consulting Excellence can provide the Recruitment support and advice that you need. We can even provide psychometric tests to help the decision making process.
Once you have the people in place we can deliver team training to ensure the team gets off to the right start and gels together from the off, knowing what is expected of them, not just as individuals, but as members of the team.
Consulting Excellence can offer you a one-off service to help you get started or can be involved on an ongoing basis helping you as your business grows and develops.
