If you answered Hiring Employees, you are right! Hiring is the top complaint from small business owners.
Why is hiring hard?
For one, it is extremely important. Your small business is only as good as the team you employ. Your service, reputation, clients, and success depend on having the right team in place.
Also, hiring well isn’t in the wheelhouse of most small business owners. You probably didn’t start your small business because you wanted to do HR. You started your business because you knew you could do what you do better than other businesses in your profession. You want your employees to do the same. Yet, somehow, when you hire the people with the best skills and experience, they don’t always work out.
This is because the best employee for you is more than just the one with the hard skills you are looking for. The best employees will also fit into your company culture, have aligned values, and support your mission, and more.
