Bringing Hiring Wisdom to the business owner
The single most important factor to successfully growing your business is hiring and retaining great employees. Finding the best and brightest staff however, is a consuming effort that requires expertise, time and money.
- It takes the average employer anywhere between 4 to 8 weeks to hire a new person.
- As an employer, you often spend close to 40 hours looking for one candidate to fill a job, taking up valuable time that could be spent running your business.
- Hiring a new employee can cost between 1.7 and 2.7 times your new employee’s total salary and…
- Eighty percent of turnover comes from ‘hiring mistakes‘.
