5 simple ways to woo talents to your team

As the saying goes, idea rules the world. An idea is worthless without a great team to make it work. The reason why many ideas remain on paper is because no one is interested in making it happen.

In this part of the world, building a team is a big challenge many startup entrepreneurs are are facing. In this post, it will be highlighted 5 ways to get team to work with your idea.

YOU MUST BE GOOD

The first thing you need to do as entrepreneur to woo talents to your startup or business is to be good yourself. You must know what you want and be clear about your idea. You must be sound in almost every aspect of your business. The reason is that, if you are attracting talent, you too must be talented yourself. Talent attracts talent.

HAVE ATTRACTIVE COMPANY CULTURE AND WORKING SPACE

Will talents have the ability to exercise their prowess in your company or startup? You see these guys, they need places where they can maximally exercise their skills. So, you must have a good company culture where everyone have a sense of belonging. A cool working space too is also key.

ATTRACTIVE STAKE OR SALARY

Though money is not everything a talent wants but money is part of it. Even if you are a startup and you don’t have salary to pay, a good stake for your talents make them stay. Also, if you are already established and you are making good profit, a good salary and benefit will go a long way to keep them working.

HELP THEM TOO

This is very key. To woo talents to your startup, you need to have a plan to help them too in their own endeavour. Most of these talents especially the technical guys have one or two ideas they want to execute or that they are working on. So, to woo them to your own side, you must be ready to care about their own idea too.

BE PRECISE IN WHAT YOU NEED THEM FOR

Yes! To attract talent to your side, you must be precise in what you need them for. Bugging them down with too many responsibilities will make them run away. So, if you need a technical guy, what exactly do you want him to do? Write code? Testing? Server? So, it is important you pen down what you need a particular talent for and present to them individually.
