According to research compiled by Jamie Van Cuyk and her business Growing Your Team.


Businesses are set back an average of 16 weeks for every bad hire they make.
74% of employers admit to having hired the wrong person for a position.
The average cost of a wrong hire is at least 30% of that person’s first-year salary.


Numbers don’t lie and what those numbers are telling me is that hiring isn’t a piece of cake. Not in the slightest.


But I don’t need to see those impressive stats to know that hiring is a challenge for business owners. I hear about the woes of hiring from my clients all the time. In fact, hiring is one of the biggest struggles business owners face. And yet, it’s a critical step in growing your team - a goal of most business owners.


Knowing when to hire, who to hire, how to hire, why to hire, what to hire them for, and where to find the right people to hire can be tough questions to answer and breed inaction.


The result of inaction? Stagnated growth and overwhelm.
But hiring doesn’t have to be a huge pain point in your business that restricts revenue. With the right strategies, you can effectively grow your team by quickly attracting the right candidates and simplifying the hiring process.


In this episode of Productivity Straight Talk, Growing Your Team owner Jamie Van Cuyk offers up plenty of those helpful strategies. It’s up to you to tune in and execute them so you can build your team and slay your goals!
