Thought For The Week
THINK twice before employing as it can be easier and less risky to buy some skills in on a contractual basis as they are needed, avoiding the commitment and the responsibility of taking on employees when the future of your business is unknown.
If you find you need employees, remember that people are your business. The wrong people can cause you great harm. So when you meet someone for the first time in an interview, be prepared to ask the right questions, to see examples of their work, and take up referernces to help you ascertain whether they are suitable.
And, as David says in his book, The Naked Millionaire, think about the person’s passion.
Of course, employing the right people is key in any business.
It can be better employing people on an agency contract. That way you get lots more benefits although it can be that the staff member is not so committed. It’s a difficult one.
