Separate work and personal relationships
The idea to have a common cause with the family looks tempting: loved ones will not fail and will not be deceived, it is easier to trust than on the part of employees. In practice, there are often problems. Perhaps a relative lack the necessary qualifications, but he did not offer a particularly important position like courier ashamed: you never know, suddenly the rest of relatives do not understand.
Experience and knowledge in working together is more important than the degree of kinship. Before taking a loved one to share, try to evaluate it impartially. Would you have hired such a specialist, if he was not your relative? Your second cousin uncle can be mileyshey soul man, but for the post of commercial director does not pull. This means that business (and in the future, and your relationship with him) anything good such cooperation is not promising.
Secure all of agreement on paper
Business - not an area where you can rely on the words and promises. If you attract to the cause of family (or rather, now partners), clear division of responsibilities and discuss what to do with profit. Arrange in advance which part of the money you are allowed to go to the company's development, and which are distributed among the partners.
Hire relatives - do not forget the employment contract. From the point of view of labor law there is no difference, work for you beloved nephew or someone you found on the website of vacancies. For a work appointment without issuing an employment contract reliesCode of Administrative Offenses, Art. 5.27 penalty - up to 10 000 rubles for individual entrepreneurs and up to 100 000 rubles for legal entities. We need to conclude an agreementThe Labor Code, Art. 67 within three working days from the date when the employee was actually allowed to work.
Keep your emotions under control
For example, when you are with subordinates, and part of your elder brother, discussing work problem Do not bring him all the iniquities to the point that 30 years ago he took you to your favorite machine. It is difficult, but business issues must be addressed with a cool head.
If brewing a serious and not very pleasant conversation with the employee, interviewed face-to-wall, not scolding a relative in front of everyone. Try not to get personal: discuss the results and the specific errors, rather than personal qualities slave. Finally, no blackmail dismissal: a good relationship with my boyfriend after this you can forget.
Do not drag the workers back home affairs, and vice versa
If the business is losing money, every family dinner can turn into a civil war. Instead exhale after a working day, you continue to discuss joint business and arrange debriefing to all involved. To benefit the cause is unlikely to go.
Always leave work at work and do not discuss it during the holidays with relatives. This rule is always valid, with whoever you work, but in the case of the family, it is of particular importance. Any business problems and even its collapse is not as dramatic as long strife in the family.
This approach also works in the opposite direction: to the employees must perform their direct duties, and not be distracted by domestic affairs and to agree who will now take the child from the school. Such questions are best put off until the evening, if not, then at least before the lunch break.
Do not use the native
There is a temptation to pass on to them the most serious problems, and regularly call for processing. Still, a common cause, and that to the salary - by his own people as a sochtomsya. You can bump and to the opposite extreme: a blind eye to any errors, and the responsibility for the results to pass on to other people.
The truth is somewhere between the embodiments. Any work should be adequately paid: to squeeze all the juice out of the people under the pretext of family relations is not necessary, or risk being left without staff and without family support. Put up with regular posts, tardiness or truancy is not necessary. Discuss with subordinates indicators by which you will measure the effectiveness of their work. For the head of sales in this indicator can be a profit for the month and for an accountant - the amount of payments carried out in a timely manner.
If a relative is unable to cope, not reconciled with that
Nothing personal, just business: sometimes relatives forced to lay off. Be objective when the employee is unable to cope with their tasks, it causes damage to the case. So, it's time to leave on good terms, and look for a more suitable candidate for the position.
To justify the dismissal of key performance indicators help. If an employee does not perform them again and again - it's a sign that you need to say goodbye to him. You can give a loved one a second chance: explain that you are not happy in his work, and agreed that a month or two once again discuss this issue. There will be no progress - no offense. Excuses and apologize for this decision is not necessary: you do not have to spend company money on employee content, which is not good.
This does not mean you have to stand all day over their soul. B2Blog experts made a list of tipsHow to monitor the work of employees and do not bend to the control. Spoiler: large tasks are broken down into steps for routine tasks, create checklists, and if a lot of employees, it's time to start CRM.
