A Tale of Better Staffing; How to Write It For Yourself

Tell me a story. Young and old want the same. We're creatures of narrative, entertained by tales of journeys, conflicts, love, despair, and hope. 


We each have our own stories. Your business has a narrative, too. What's your company's creation story? How did it grow? What's happening now, and where will the business be in 10 years? Those are powerful narratives involving multiple personal stories, too. 


This month, I'm talking about "fun in business," and sharing stories tops my list. 


Anne Lackey's Company Offers a Unique Virtual Solution for Staffing Issues 


We formed HireSmart after my husband, Mark, and I went on vacation, and the employee we left in charge of our property management company texted her resignation right as we were headed for breakfast on our first morning there. This was a much-needed getaway as we had waited 7 years. Unfortunately, after less than 1 day there, we ended up packing our bags and driving 6 hours to head back home. It was at that moment we determined to set up a more reliable form of staffing for our business. We did that, and then we created a new company to do that for others. 


Since then, we've helped hundreds of business owners and managers find greater workload efficiencies through low-cost, reliable office staffing from the Philippines. 


Beyond Words: Turning Your Company's Core Values into Daily Actions   


But enough about me. I'm interested in you. Seriously. What's your story? It's honestly a joy to hear other people talk about their lives and their challenges. I've learned that engaging in another's mental journey and walking with them as they contemplate decisions is deeply rewarding. 


And if you're a business owner, I can empathize with the twists and turns of your story. You never really put it to bed, do you? The story goes on while we sleep because owning a business is 24/7/365. 


Even now, I live that, too. HireSmart is our child in a way. We're always thinking about it. We're always considering how to serve our clients because a customer-centric focus is the only way any business truly thrives. You understand this, too. 


You also know that any business is only as good as its people. These questions are crucial for your business: who you hire, how they perform, how they improve, and how long they stay. 


At HireSmart, we're deep in that narrative for hundreds of companies daily. We're pros at finding the right person to suit our client's specific needs at a low cost. 


The Cost Benefits of Hiring Virtually 


As you consider your business narrative, remember that every quality story has a beginning and an end. It also includes a character who sees an obstacle and takes action to resolve that problem. 


HireSmart has served as a positive plot turn for many business narratives. Staffing was a problem, and owners and managers sought us out for solutions, finding that onsite staff could be freed up to perform crucial duties by shifting other work to online employees. 


"We were on the fence for a really long time, for many years," said Abby, director of operations for a U.S. property management company. "And when we got our virtual employee, I thought about how different we could have scaled our company, how we could have improved policies and procedures if we had taken on virtual employees many years ago." 


There is No "Box" When Hiring in Today's World 


Abby's company has six HireSmart virtual employees. 


"Collectively, they're some of the most positive people I've ever been in communication with," she said. "They're very hardworking, very upbeat, and just go, go, go." 


It's so fun to link people like Abby with quality employees from afar who aren't so different from us. They love their families, want to provide value to the world, and want to have fun and be happy.  


HireSmart VE Is Always Available for His Family and Profession 


Our business is a feel-good narrative because it aims to be that for others — a feel-good story. 


What's your business story? And can we help you shape it to be even better?

It would be truly fun for me, and I think you'd enjoy it, too — your story taking shape.
