  • Speaker: Brendan Murphy

 

As business owners you have a natural urge to expand and grow in your market. To achieve growth, one of the natural paths is increase your work force. A huge drawback in this element of growth is faith, and trust in your new employees.

Do we try to recruit ourselves? After all, who knows our business better than us?  Do we trust a professional recruiter? How can we, with all the bad press this industry attracts?

 

Do we place blind faith in someone else to recommend someone?
