Assembling a Top Team

Hiring is mostly science, not art. It’s a methodical, repetitive, and often drawn-out process, but it’s one that most small-business owners have to go through eventually.

Referrals are almost always the best option. After all, referred applicants are more likely to be skilled, hard-working applicants (because the people doing the referring don’t want the embarrassment of referring a weak applicant), and they cost next to nothing. Just get the word out that you’re looking and then let your employees, vendors, or customers do the talking.
