Hiring highly skilled and motivated talent can be hard work, time consuming and potentially very expensive if executed poorly.
- Whilst hiring competent talent, also look for matching ethical values and qualify the individuals motivations to personalise a career plan.
- Design clear communication channels across the business, ensure that people feel valued & recognised for their achievements and ensure employees know what processes to follow when they struggle with a problem.
- Environment should be actively cultivated from the ground up, not as a dictatorship; empower your people to be themselves and you will see the benefits in productivity both directly and indirectly.

Recruiting and hiring good employees is arguably the most critical aspect of running a small business. After all, if you're not hiring the right people to begin with, your ability to succeed in nearly everything else you do in your staffing practices will be greatly compromised. That's why it is important to consider the costs of a bad hire. Your company loses more than time, money and effort by recruiting, hiring and training people who perhaps shouldn't have been brought on in the first place. You must also deal with the havoc that the "wrong" employee can create: the business you may lose when that individual interacts with customers, the costs you incur when you have to repeat procedures that were handled ineptly and the pressures on other employees who must pick up the slack.
