The Man Who Walks the Walk and Talks the Talk
- Doug – – Our guest today is Brandon Moreno, he runs a company called EverHive. What intrigued me about Brandon is that his perspective is from the other side….yes that’s right, I am talking about HR.
- Strickland – – You’ve got to hire people who have not just the right skills, but the right attitude.
- Brandon – – EverHive is essentially a management consulting firm with procurement for the procurement folks, for HR folks, for legal folks within an organization with how to establish an internally-ran contingent worker program instead of outsourcing it.
- We help organizations make a road map.
Connecting to the Hustling World
- Brandon – – I have always look for organizations that have the entrepreneur spirit.
- Gig Economy is a flexible type of workforce that could help others build their business.
- 47% of the workforce next year will be some type of contingent, temporary or contract worker
- Ask yourself, “What are all the different components within my business? How effective am I? Will I need to add 2 or 3 people to my team?”
- People need to look at what they are good at and realize there are organizations out there that can take care of the weak spots
- In general, Millennials are making up about 50% of the workforce
- Millennials care about providing value (i.e. projects that have fulfillment)
- Millennials absorb like a sponge, but there can be a lack humility (the ability to learn from others and realize that you may be benefiting the teacher as well)
- Technology is shaping the workforce and entrepreneurs need to think about that
Action Steps – How to Crank Up the Heat, Safely
- Give yourself permission to relax
- Most of us think we have to be on 24/7
- We don’t, there needs to be balance
- List all of the different functions that your company does
- No matter what the size of your company (1 man or 30), write different subcategories within your business – i.e. communications, finance etc.
- Do you need someone to help you in one of those?
- It is really about networking and expressing what you need
- It is ok to say, “I need help”
- You have to do your due diligence
- Be extremely thorough before committing your business with another specialization company
- If there is momentum and interest in the business, if it comes with ease and connections are being made, that is a sign to keep going
