Most of you who run electronic security companies put in the extra hours to make your business successful. You come in early and stay late.
That quality is something you should also look for in the type of people you hire. Find people who have a strong work ethic. Is this easy? Of course not. But if you asking probing questions in the job interview, you'll get a better sense of how hard someone works.
You can't expect employees to pull the same hours you do as a business owner, but you can expect them to show a willingness to put in the hours necessary for them to succeed. If you're looking for these types of employees, show them a good example. Get an early start on the day. If there's a pressing problem at the end of the day, make sure it is solved before going home.
A lot of company culture is learned by watching. People see what others do, and follow it. This makes it even more important for you to demonstrate the type of commitment necessary to make sure jobs get done in a timely fashion and up to your standards.
Look for people who arrive early and stay late. You'll be able to see some of this in the job interview, and you can find out more by polling their references to get a sense of a potential employee's work ethic. Having people on board with your same work ethic can greatly enhance your ability to operate your business with confidence. And with such capable backup, you might also be able to relax every now and again.
