Download Our Small Business Hiring Guide — Compliments of CareerBuilder

hiring-guideMoney Magazine just released its “Best Places to Live” for 2009, and while perusing the “winners,” I noticed that the towns listed all had several factors in common to qualify them as the “best of the best,” including a strong local economy, little crime, short commutes to work, low rate of unemployment, robust industry, great schools, affordable homes — the list goes on. There is no one magic component that makes these towns desirable; it’s a combination of factors that come together and compliment each other to make up a best place to live.

Similarly, hiring isn’t simply posting a job and accepting the first person who comes along. Successful employers view hiring as a multi-faceted process — stemming from attraction all the way to retention, with several aspects in between. As an employer in today’s economy, you must be cognizant of changing job seeker practices, communicative during your candidate engagement efforts, active in encouraging employee satisfaction and retention — all while establishing and building a strong and recognizable brand and fostering a thriving internal company culture. (Whew!) There’s a lot involved in being a successful business with the best employees on board, and sometimes, you need a hand to help you brush up on those areas which you’ve neglected — or simply haven’t thought about before.

That’s why we’re happy to report that CareerBuilder’s Small Business Hiring Guide is now available for you to download (for FREE… we must be crazy, right?!).

Over the last 20 years, small businesses have accounted for 70% of the job growth. Yet, many small business owners spend little time trying to hire the right people. Often, their hires will be a friend or on the advice of someone they know. Hiring the right employees is one of the most important things a small business owner can do.
