Becoming a Shed Boss franchisee means being your own boss, but that doesn't mean you can do it all on your own.
You'll need help, especially as your business grows, and this requires you to hire new talent. Unfortunately, picking the right employees can be easier said than done.
With that in mind, here are some characteristics you'll want to be on the lookout for.
Chances are you became a Shed Boss franchisee because you have a passion for building and a background in construction. While it's not absolutely necessary that all your employees are the same way, it pays to have people working for you who are just as passionate about the building industry and have knowledge that can help when it comes to barns, industrial sheds and the like.
While knowledge of building is important, attitude can be even more vital when trying to run a business. You don't just want a smart, experienced employee, you want one who has a positive attitude.
Nothing turns customers off quite like a surly demeanour, and who wants to work with someone who is constantly negative? Ensure your workers make your business an upbeat place – you'll be happy you did.
It can be difficult to gauge someone's trustworthiness without first getting to know them, but it's definitely an attribute you'll want to focus on.
After all, you'll often be trusting your employees with access to your money, products and other sensitive information and items. You deserve to have peace of mind instead of worrying if you can put your faith in someone.
While these are far from the only traits that matter in the business world, they can create the building blocks of a stellar employee – exactly what you need to make your Shed Boss franchise a success.
