Dream Team by Design is a simple, step-by-step process for building a smoothly functioning team who will help you grow your business.
If you have ever held your head in your hands in despair over employee issues, we need to talk. It really is possible to build your Dream Team by developing a staffing plan that is customized for your unique business . The key is understanding that it doesn’t happen overnight and the system I can teach you will put the process in motion to become a seamless part of your daily operations.
Hi, my name is Peg Leach. I design custom staffing plans for small business owners who want to grow.
I believe having the right team is the answer to everything.
Staffing a business can be one of the more challenging issues in running a business. When unexpected problems come up, there’s no HR manager to turn to for help – it’s all on you! Navigating the maze of legal requirements, financial planning, new technology, labor relations, and everything else can be overwhelming and requires a determined sort of individual to make it all come together.
Fact: Statistics show that only about half of new businesses make it through the first couple of years. Of course, you don’t just want to be a small business owner – you want to be a successful one! If you are one who has persevered, I applaud you and want to offer my services to help you fine-tune your staffing process. They say the devil is in the details and if you never take the time to build a team who can take care of the day-to-day functions without you constantly having to step in, you will never be able to focus your efforts on growing your business successfully.
Wouldn’t it be great if the people walking out the door were actually the ones who were not a good fit for the job – instead of seeing good workers leave out of frustration and unhappiness?
Fact: There is no such thing as “zero turnover” – the reality is that things change in employees’ lives and they move on to other adventures. It’s okay to feel relief when someone who is not a good fit for your business (or is just plain toxic) leaves to pursue other opportunities.
The key to keeping turnover as low as possible is figuring out what is causing people to leave and then coming up with a way to prevent the good ones from jumping ship. This is why it is vital to spend time building your employer brand – as an employer of choice, you will attract high quality candidates and be able to fill open positions much more quickly.
In my career, I have personally experienced what it is like to work with both large and small businesses in different industries across the U.S. – both as an employee and as an employer. When the entrepreneurial bug latched onto me, I realized my staffing expertise could be used to help small businesses with what is one of their biggest frustrations – building a loyal and productive team.
Fact: Statistics show that employees who feel that they are wanted, needed and respected will not only stay longer, but will outperform their “unengaged” counterparts in productivity, dependability, & customer service ratings. Taking the time and investing the resources to build your Dream Team will have a positive impact on your bottom line. Even better than that, though, is how much more enjoyable the workplace will be for everyone – you and your customers included!
I’d love to have a conversation with you to show you the system I have developed to help you build a smoothly functioning staffing process.
Thank you for bringing so much to the table Peg! You have really been a huge help with us and staffing! You helped us create a roadmap for the talent we are in need of, write job descriptions from the top down, helped us with the current folks in place to see where growth and opportunity from within could come and continue to bring ideas for retainment and bettering the business to a group that gets caught up too much in the trenches and can lose sight! We love the Stay Interviews, you collect information that the staff may never have shared with us, all of which would/could better the business. We also believes it shows the staff that we do value them and what they have to offer/suggest. Having everyone participate also helps build the team!
