Growing with Limited Resources

All businesses have to start somewhere. Unfortunately, that somewhere isn’t always backed by ideal resources and unlimited money to invest in growth. That’s why I am writing this blog. I want to share a few ideas to help you grow with minimal resources. Start with your social media marketing efforts. It you’re too busy to do all the social media updates for your company, focus only on email. This method is still the most impactful when it comes to actual ROI.

Asking the Right Questions

While we here at Building Team Solutions can provide you with amazing candidates and talent, it is your goal to ask the right questions to vet our matches for you. But what are the right questions? Gone are the days of asking template questions on an interview. If you really want to get to know a candidate, make him or her think on their feet. Ask unexpected questions that can’t be practiced. Watching how the candidate handles the question is more crucial than the actual answer. How someone handles the… Read more

It is no secret that construction jobs in Texas are booming. But, there are other jobs available too. One of the most popular growing jobs is the sales associate.

When You're Not Hired...

I run a staffing company. My clients are seeking the best employees who will also fit in with their company's culture, match their payment ability, and best represent who they are as a brand. As a result, different factors play into who obtains which jobs. The person with the most experience doesn't always get the job. So, how do you handle not landing the job or getting that promotion? Life is full of disappointments. I'm sure if you didn't get job A with us, we will be able to place… Read more

Creating Boundaries at Work

One question we get asked a lot is how much information is too much information at work. Each company has its own culture and, outside of deviating from federal law, sharing can make or break you at work when it comes to fitting into the culture. While it is always best to use your best judgement, you want to follow the following guidelines when it comes to creating boundaries within the workplace - either for yourself as an employee or for your employees as a manager / CEO. 1. Communicate… Read more

Jobs & Homelessness

I recently saw a press release discussing the issue of paying a decent wage versus employment and homelessness. Being in the employment industry, I see the constant struggle in our community with companies who do not pay a “living wage” adequate for people to live on. We decided long ago that our clients would be only those who have the same core principles as we do, which is to pay a decent wage and hire good employees who are treated well. I try to make sure we are aligned with… Read more

Delegating. It's the Letting Go Part That's Hard!

Here's an issue I run into every once in a blue moon- a business owner who refuses to delegate but wants to hire someone. Yes, there are people out there who know they need help but can't let go of their control issues. Listen, in business you're going to have to hire. In fact, the need to hire means you're growing- a very good thing. But you can't do it on your own. You will need a great support team behind you. If you're having trouble delegating work and responsibility,… Read more

What NOT to Say at Work.

Let's say you landed your dream job. You're having trouble fitting in with the culture. It seems no matter what you say, other employees (or worse, bosses) are taking your words out of content. Here are a few tips to fit in better and keep you from saying the wrong thing. First, don't interrupt someone who is talking too much. If you start explaining an idea, or anything for the matter, and someone runs over you and talks, and talks, and talks, and ...... simply wait for the person to… Read more
