Managing Employees Doesn't Have to Be Hard: 10 Tips for Making Your Job Easier

ROSELAND, NJ--(Marketwired - Jan 16, 2015) -

Employees should be a small business owner's greatest asset. According to the ADP Small Business Report®, small businesses with fewer than 50 employees added more than one million jobs in 2014, accounting for almost 40 percent of last year's total U.S. job gains. What happens when you combine job growth with a declining unemployment rate? It becomes tougher to hire the best people. That's why creating the right performance management process -- one that better engages, motivates and retains employees -- should be a top priority for every small business, both for new hires and existing employees. A recent study* revealed that highly engaged employees can boost profitability by 22 percent, increase productivity by 21 percent, and reduce turnover by 65 percent. In this one-hour presentation, small business owners can learn how to use performance management to drive growth and success. They'll learn how to conduct a performance appraisal, how low-cost rewards can motivate people, best practices for managing poor performance, and the importance of consistency and documentation.
