Take Care Of Your People –
The Enlightened CEO's Guide To Business Success

Guiding Your Company Toward Greatness

People make the world—and your business—go round. Paul Sarvadi understands this reality better than anyone. With over thirty years in human capital management, he practically invented the concept of HR and administrative outsourcing. Payroll, scheduling, performance management, expense reporting, benefits, legal compliance—the administrative tasks a business owner must contend with are numerous, varied, and constantly in flux. It’s a full-time job to keep up with all of it; in fact, it’s much more than a full-time job. You need a dedicated team of professionals to really handle it. For a small- or medium-sized business owner, whether you’re an upstart first-time entrepreneur or a decades-long veteran, dealing with all this stuff can leave you feeling overwhelmed, drowning in an alphabet soup of acronymic regulations, personnel documentation, and administration.

Sarvadi’s mission is simple: to help your company succeed by taking care of the things that might distract from the bigger picture. In this book, he sets out share his secrets to managing and motivating your most valuable asset, your people. In addition to his innovative ideas in HR, he deep dives into key topics such as controlling expenses, minimizing risk exposure, and maximizing opportunities for revenue generation. Because in the end, more profitability means more money for you and every member of your team.

Paul has captured the subtle yet complex interplay between strategy and systematic execution in a practical and impactful way. His incredible vision, deep understanding of organizations and people and lessons learned from experience have given us a great playbook for developing impeccable organizational hygiene. I deeply respect the grit and determination that has led the Insperity senior team to build not only a world class company but also pioneer an entire industry. BoyarMiller is a much better organization because of our relationship with Insperity and I am blessed to call Paul a friend. We will be even better as we apply the lessons and guidance so humbly shared in Take Care of Your People.

When you walk into the lobby of Ingram Entertainment Inc. (the nation’s largest distributor of DVDs and video games), there is a portrait and quote from founder E. Bronson Ingram (1931—1995) that reads: “I believe in taking good care of associates because associates who are taken good care of will, in turn, take good care of the company.” Paul Sarvadi’s book provides a number of good ideas regarding “taking care of the people”. Doing this correctly is the true secret sauce for business success.
