Welcome to our series on starting your small business.
In the past weeks, we have looked at getting clear why you are starting your business, what you need to think about before you start, how you actually start a small business, preparing a feasibility check on your idea, and starting with a written business plan.
This week, we are going to look at hiring your first employees.
It doesn’t matter how big or small your small business is, at some point, probably sooner than you think, you will need to hire employees. They may be full time, part-time or even casual staff, but at some time in the early days of the business, you will realise the need to leverage your time to grow the business. There may be some skills that you do not have or simply more hands that you need.
In this article, we are going to look at some regulatory preparation, how to prepare your business for employees, how to interview them, and how to onboard them into the business.
