Overcoming The Recruitment and Retention Challenge w/ Teresa Kiyawasew Kiy HR Services

Friends in the Industry -

Today, I’m super excited to bring back to the podcast my friend Teresa Kiyawasew, owner of Kiy HR Services, and is also known as the HR Wizard!

During our conversation, Teresa and I dive into what are some key components of hiring correctly and guides us through the first part of an employee’s life cycle, known as Attraction. Here, we dive into key components you need to implement when considering hiring, actually hiring, and onboarding.

Teresa shares some must need advice for organizations to implement right away that are currently, or about to, hire, that will help them overcome some of the challenges that come with recruitment and retention!

Check out the episode now!

During our conversation, Teresa mentioned two things that were huge takeaways for me.

First, when you mentioned “do you even need the position” and how you work with clients on completing a job analysis ahead of time – so much value for both the employee and the employer here to be confident in the needs of the role which helps make the right hire.

Second, when you mentioned being careful of the information you’re getting, and shared the story of the case law situation, super powerful and so true – we need to ensure we are complying with the correct laws!

I highly recommend checking out episode #88 on the Truck Focus Podcast, which is the original interview Teresa joined me on and you can learn more about her journey!

Let Me Ask You This...

Have you considered all the steps that go into launching a new business? All the various components are required to be pieced together in just the right way, that you can structure a service or product that is eventually purchased.

From there, you start to gain more trust within your industry, and more purchases are made.

You get to a point where business is going so well, or things are just that busy, that you decide you need to hire someone to help you out.

Now, you’re an expert in your business, without a doubt.

But have you hired an employee before?

Are you aware of all that it takes to properly hire an employee, but also what goes into retaining such employees so they don’t quit after the first 2 or 3 weeks?

I highly recommend taking a look at Teresa's incredible training, the Complete HR Blueprint as she does an excellent job teaching essential information that you need to know in order to successfully implement, and manage, your human resources in your business.
