So my company is growing, and we are hiring for more roles. I have just hired my first HR Manager, and want to make sure that I use her to her highest level; and help our company on many levels.
My main question to start is how do I use this person effectively? What metrics should I be holding her up to? More importantly, how do I use this person to create a great team environment. My company is a remote based company with team members all over the globe, so we are not next to each other physically each day.
Thanks for any advice, I need it!
In Feb 09 I will be finishing a final push for creating a 3 - 5 person Sales Staff for a Web Development firm I own. This position is for people that do not work in an office, but Referral Based. All work between my firm and my Sales Staff will be done on the phone, through PDA, and a Task Management Software where they can login and submit new clients/referrals.
I am looking for advice on how to handle such a move for me as the owner of the business and the "boss" of these salesmen, as previously my firm was just me - in 09 I plan on hiring said sales staff and maybe a Project Manager.
Also, is there literature I can review which show proven methods for me to use on my Sales Staff to help moral and eventually an increase in sales?
I am young and finally realizing a dream of running a business for myself, and looking for advice on when I hire employees, and what methods will produce the best results for every one involved.
