The Small Business tips today will be about promoting from within.
- Find out what skills people use when they’re not at work. Determine if you can put those skills to use—in a higher position.
- In a small company you should understand your advantage: a better position to know what people’s abilities & interests are.
- Create career paths for employees. Your people need opportunities to grow and to stay interested.
- If an employee needs outside training for a higher-level job, pay for it. That will be cheaper than recruiting a new employee.
Daily Overview: Find and utilize the skills your current employees have. Train them for what they don't have. It's cheaper!
