An Investor will expect you to understand what the key skills and talents required in an employee are, in order for you to grow your business – and also what an employee’s availability is in your location, and how much they would expect to earn. Employment contracts are a key feature of any business, so you will have to carefully consider what your policies are for: hours worked, holidays, sickness, evening and weekend cover, travel, probationary periods, training, and disciplinary procedures. In other words, all of the things that you’d expect yourself if you were an employee – except that now the ‘buck is going to stop’ at your desk, as you’re the business owner. Excellent companies can only succeed, grow and become world class by building a qualified task force, consisting of happy & motivated staff. Those are the fundamental keys to success required by any successful entrepreneur.
