In the business world, the old saying “it’s not what you know, but who you know” still rings true. Half of the key to running a successful business is making and maintaining good connections with other people. As an employer a big part of your job is networking. So if you feel like you’re falling short in the networking department, here are some tips to help you reach more people and make lasting bonds.

Sell Your Company

No matter who you are talking to, if your company comes up, you need to sell it. Share your successes, talk about your passion for what you do, and let people know how much your business means to yourself, your employees, and your customers. Every business has its weaknesses, of course, but it’s important to remember that any good employee is going to be shopping around for jobs — they are likely interviewing you just as much as you are interviewing them. Highlighting the positive is always the best strategy.

Follow up and keep in touch
Maybe you’ve found a great potential employee but the time just isn’t right. Don’t be discouraged. Give out your card, and get their contact information all the same. In a few months or a year, things may be different, and these people may be in a better place to work with you. Make sure you send out an email or make a call every once in awhile — staying in touch is networking 101.

HR Matters

Your HR department should always be on the lookout for qualified recruits. Keeping tabs on and reaching out to the best up and coming people in your field is important. You want talented and well-connected people on your team.
