A Series of Small Business Recruitment Mistakes to Avoid (4)


4. Hiring a “Mini-Me” of the Business Owner

A powerful side benefit of building out a formal recruitment process? You’re more likely to recruit based on talent, drive, and potential — not because you see yourself in potential recruits.

“I see it happen all too often that a small business owner will try and build a team of people just like him or herself,” says Noelle Johnson, “But new recruits will never be him or her — so he/she is constantly disappointed when the staff are unable to live up to his / her unrealistic expectations. Over time, important pieces fall through the cracks because the business doesn’t have people in place that are strong where the owner is weak.”
