Small Biz Tip: Employees: Promoting from Within

Tips originally broadcast on December 5, 2008

The Small Business tips today will be about promoting from within.

  1. 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.
  2. In a small company you should understand your advantage: a better position to know what people’s abilities & interests are.
  3. Create career paths for employees. Your people need opportunities to grow and to stay interested.
  4. 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!
