A Series of Small Business Recruitment Mistakes to Avoid (5)


4. Not Hiring Enough People

If you’re like most small business owners, you have waited to grow your permanent staff until you were sure you could keep them busy for the long term. But once you decide to expand, make sure you’re bringing on the number of team members you really need, not just the number you can get by with.

“Small business owners often push their existing employees too far before they bring in new recruits.

“Then, because they’re understaffed, service suffers, existing employees get burned out and new employees aren’t given enough time for training before they’re thrown into daily operations. The new employees are likely to fail, existing employees are overwhelmed and the culture and business suffer.”
