    Team Building Games

    Team Building Games

    In today's episode, Matt will go through some excellent ideas for team-building activities that will enhance culture, engagement, and retention.

    The advantages of team building include enhanced collaboration, planning abilities, employee engagement, and communication. Employees can connect in a different environment by engaging in enjoyable activities that allow them to perceive each other in a new way.

    Teams that function well together can solve problems more efficiently than if each team member worked alone when time and effort are invested in building such teams. In other words, the sum is worth more than the parts.

    Hiring a Virtual Assistant | Should you leverage offshore talent to grow your payroll company?

    Hiring a Virtual Assistant | Should you leverage offshore talent to grow your payroll company?

    A lot of people are interested in leveraging offshore talent to move their business forward. While this is not a new thing, there are still a lot of limiting beliefs about what you can get help with from offshore teammates.

    People are worried about the level of skill, getting screwed over, worried about the quality of the work, don’t trust the systems, and don’t know how to get started.

    We are going to help you navigate this. We have completed over 100 contracts with offshore assistants and specialists ranging from general virtual assistants to highly skilled professionals.

    We have spent well into the six figures with offshore talent over the last few years and it provides a nice supplement to our local team.

    Our mindset is that we can create far more “onshore” jobs by leveraging contract talent to help us grow. In this episode we covered the following and more:


    The types of tasks and projects you can offshore
    Where to find remote talent
    How to set your offshore teammates (and yourself) up for success
    Lessons learned from our experience and how to apply it yourself

    Three Takeaways

    Creating clear expectations and SOP's is the only way to have success with offshore assistants.
    Be diligent and patient when hiring. Make sure you have a process in place for evaluating talent.
    Your offshore team should be a supplement to your local team and do basic tasks to start and grow over time.

    Tips for hiring remote employees | Best practices for hiring remote employees

    In this episode, Matt shares how to find remote teammates. Hiring remote employees can lead to a lot more work, can create some unique issues when determining who is a good fit, and you can make bad hires just as easy. We cover how to define what you are looking for, where to find people, how to actively recruit, and how to be efficient with your time.

    I am taking the perspective of the small business owner here, so I will do my best to let you know what can (and should be delegated) and what you should do yourself.

    We are going to discuss everything leading up to the interviews. This is the sourcing phase. How do we find the talent to fill the funnel?
