Evaluate Your Work Force

You can start by taking a closer look at your best employees.

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

One way to create a highly customized evaluation of your work force is to use your best employees to build a benchmark against which you can measure the rest of your work force. If your top two salespeople average 30 percent annual growth in their territories while the rest get just 5 percent, you may have some training and/or hiring to do before you can grow significantly.
