Building Your Team

Can You Build A Team?

If you’ve operated your business as lean as possible and you continue to wear every hat yourself there will come a point–or your breaking point–where, in order to remain competitive and prosper, you’ll need to welcome a helping hand aboard your tight ship.

But before bringing just anyone on board, you need to understand that extra manpower entails a whole new string of legal obligations, liabilities, expenses, and, of course, paperwork.

Beyond the red tape, hiring mismatches can result in high turnover, absenteeism, higher healthcare costs, workplace violence, and theft–substantial costs to a company’s bottom line.

To help you navigate the hiring process, we’ve invited seasoned entrepreneurs and business owners to share the steps and precautions to help you make informed hiring decisions.
