Local business owners discussed how their organizations know when it is time to hire:
  • Determine if the cost to hire is going to get you to the next level.
  • Outsource tedious work rather than having your staff handle it.
  • Look consistently to hire sales staff.
  • Hire when you hit certain thresholds.
  • Be sure to have the time to train to meet new client’s timeline.

Speaker: Kate Varholick, Ask Kate – Time to Hire or Not?

  • Look at job description first. (onet.org – sample job descriptions)
  • Have a standard list of questions.
  • Do not code the paperwork.
  • Ask if the applicant has the skills to do this job.
  • Ask if the applicant foresees any problems with the schedule.
  • A little planning goes a long way!
