HR Advice – How To Recruit, Inspire And Retain The Right People


I have been giving HR advice for many years and time and time again the same frustrations bubble to the surface.

One of the main frustrations I come across is business owners struggling to recruit the right people. If you’re struggling to meet your business goals it may be because you’re not recruiting the right people. This means you could be suffering from something I like to call ‘People Disease’. People disease can be things like absence problems, high staff turnover, performance issues and lack of passion.

In this video, I explain how you can cure people disease and recruit, inspire and retain the right people.


During my many years working in HR, I can tell you that if you’re suffering from people’s disease, don’t panic, so are many other business owners. In order to get to the bottom of peoples disease, I conducted a survey asking business owners what people problems they were facing in their business. My survey identified three core problems.

Problem number one, struggling to employ the right people. Now, recruitment is very costly and it often takes up a lot of time. Which means that sometimes when you’re in desperate need for someone, you recruit anyone which can later result in employee dismissal, time and costs. So definitely recruit against your values and wait for the right person, it will be worth it in the long run.

Problem number two, employees not doing things the way the business owner would like them done. As a business owner, this can be really frustrating when you’re having to spend your time putting things right. The best advice I can give to you is to communicate, tell your employee what you want from them and set up formal procedures for everyone to follow.

Finally, problem number three, employees not having the same amount of passion as their business owners. In order to grow you need a team of passionate people who fit into all of your values and are really motivated, people who will go the extra mile without being asked.

The good news to all of this is that there is a cure to people disease and it’s called culture.  If you need HR advice and would like to find out more about workplace culture and recruiting, inspiring and retaining the right people, get in touch today.
