Hiring...it’s literally the plague of every business owner. It’s probably one of the most exhausting aspects of running a small business. If you have more than one employee, in your mind you’re raising your hand saying, “Yes, that’s me! I hate hiring and firing people.” In fact, it’s such a dreadful process, business owners can’t wait to turn the hat over to somebody else and wash their hands of the dirty task.
Small business owners know how difficult it is to find and retain top talent. It seems like finding good people is hard, and keeping them is even harder. If you don’t have a revolving door of employees, you may find that once you luck out and hire a good one, he or she leaves for another opportunity before you can get a return on your investment – so frustrating, right? For so many companies, they hire and train people only to find themselves wondering...” When will he (or she) ditch me?”
