Hiring the right person is always important; however, in a small, to very small organization it is even more important – and perhaps critical. Here is why….STAFFING ERRORS ARE MAGNIFIED IN THE SMALL BUSINESS……if you are a two-person company and you add a third person – and that person doesn’t fit in or work out for whatever reason – you have one-third of your staff not performing up to snuff. Think of that. One-third of you staff isn’t performing well. Small businesses cannot afford that. It cannot be sustained. The problems can quickly and directly affect the firm’s output as well as the performance/morale of the others.
Small companies have to be very careful in their hires to avoid this problem and for the same reason, if an employee isn’t working out, the small company has to be very quick to remedy the situation.
