Hiring and Onboarding for Agencies

A Predictable, Repeatable Process for Hiring and Retaining A Players

You wouldn’t spend your Monday burning dolla bills, so don’t waste your money on a bad hire. A bad hire can cost your business $15k +

Productivity suffers, and that just plain hurts. Plus, hiring the wrong employee makes your brand look bad.

How about let’s fix all that ASAP?

Good employees in the right positions empower the engine that is your brand. S.C.A.L.E. your agency through an airtight, replicable hiring process, and streamlined onboarding.

Ready to give us the reins? Here’s how we’ll right and steer that ship.

S.C.A.L.E.

We use a proprietary framework, called S.C.A.L.E, to help agency owners take control of their internal and external processes with proven optimization strategies. The result is a business that scales with far less effort so you can find more harmony in your work-life balance.

Sound good? Let’s break down the S.C.A.L.E. framework for hiring and onboarding.

SCALE. See what’s happening

Your agency is as unique as you and your team members. The S.C.A.L.E. framework is customized to your particular needs and business operations. During the first step, we’ll figure out exactly what you need to streamline your agency hiring processes.

We’ll show you how to attract, find, and retain the right people for your organization so you don’t keep running into all this not-so-fun stuff:

  • You’ve hired the wrong people too many times to count. But you don’t know how you manage to keep churning.
  • You’ve hired a great person for your job, with no idea how to replicate the process for future hires.
  • Great candidates fill out your application, but many of them don’t finish the hiring and onboarding process.
  • You’re struggling to retain great employees.
  • You keep underestimating the costs of hiring new people.
  • You have a great team but are growing too quickly and not sure how new hires will jell.

Together, we’ll pinpoint what’s not working in your agency and engineer a strategy designed to tweak and fix the specific issues plaguing your productivity.

The second step in the S.C.A.L.E. framework will look at your current hiring processes and see how they’re operating. This is where we establish a baseline so we can optimize your processes for greater growth and success.

SCALE. Create a Baseline

Issue numero uno we see agencies make with hiring and onboarding is they significantly underestimate the associated costs.

When you don’t know what you’re up against, you can’t fix it. During this stage of the S.C.A.L.E. framework, we’ll take a fine toothed comb over your:

  • Established budgets for hiring and onboarding
  • Your timelines for hiring and onboarding
  • Any gaps in talent, capabilities, and roles that need filled

Once we’ve established a baseline, we’ll fill in the cracks and gaps in your hiring and onboarding, and amplify the good stuff you’re doing.

SCALE. Amplify how you do it

Here, we take what you’re doing well currently and bump it up a notch (or ten). So, how do we work our optimization magic? We’ve got a few tricks up our sleeves:

  • Our Hiring Calculator gives us an accurate picture of your hiring and onboarding costs. Voila! Now we’ve got a budget to work with.
  • We identify and quantify meaningful data related to your hiring and onboarding processes, so we have the insight needed for optimization.
  • We use measurable, accurate, attainable KPIs for uncovering things like time to hire and time to productivity.
  • We’ll systemize the recruiting and onboarding process so you can build a powerhouse team with high morale and explosive productivity.
  • You’ll get guidance for training your team so you can cultivate that go-getter culture you want and stop repeating yourself eighty bazillion times a day.

You might be thinking we’ll have to stop your business operations to get under the hood of your hiring and onboarding vehicle. But nope, you’d be wrong (no offense).

We get it. Your business can’t just stop. We’ve gotta climb aboard a moving train that we’ll be fixing on the fly. Once we get your hiring and onboarding processes buttoned up, it’s time to lead and delegate.

SCALE. Lead and delegate

You can’t sit back and relax while your business hums along in the background if you don’t delegate. During the L step, we’ll show you how to lead with implementation.

Learn how to delegate appropriately. Track progress, and get your business scaling on autopilot and hiring the right people every time you’ve got a need to fill.

Next, it’s time to get out of the way and watch your business grow without you needing to manage it hands-on.

SCALE. Exit and oversee

This part wraps everything up so you can make a graceful exit from managing the day-to-day. Instead, you’ll be overseeing from afar because you’ll be watching your metrics create the a-players your business needs to grow and scale.

Look forward to going from, “OMG I have to run everything and why is nothing working the way I want?!”
