As in any field, to have a successful staffing firm, you have to find an edge that will make you stand out among your competition. It is important to develop habits that will make your business the most successful it can be in the staffing industry. At Staffers, we believe that one of the most important rules to follow in order to have a successful and long lasting business is the Golden Rule: do unto others as you would have them do unto you. This simple yet difficult value applies to all aspects of the staffing industry, and we have broken it down into three important elements:
1. Treat your employees with respect: as a business owner, it is important to treat your employees with respect and kindness. If they are the right fit, they will follow suit! Sticking to the Golden Rule will give you an opportunity not only to create an office culture centered around respect (and therefore success), but it will also show other businesses that your positive office culture will translate into their own office when they temporarily or hire directly your job candidates.
2. Treat your temporary employees with respect: Whether they are temporary, temp-to-perm, or direct hire, your temp employees represent your company and its values. Your candidates who are out on assignment will represent your firm in your clients’ businesses. Treating your job candidates with respect and kindness will affect their performance in other businesses, which will grow your reputation as a successful and professional firm!
3. Treating your clients with respect: The Golden Rule also applies to the way that you treat your clients. You want to get to know your clients and establish a long lasting relationship with them so that they will continue to use your services. Your best customers are ultimately the ones that you have the strongest and most long lasting relationships with. The Golden Rule is always a good guide in how you establish relationships with your clients.
In all of these cases, there are some really simple ways to abide by the Golden Rule! One example is as simple as responding to e-mails or returning phone calls and inquiries in a timely manner. Another way to abide by the Golden Rule in your staffing firm is to keep your word. If you say you will get back to a client or job candidate by a certain time, stick to it! Your clients will continue to support your business, and your employees and job candidates will want to represent your company in a positive light. At Staffers, we think it is essential to follow the golden rule!
