EPISODE 222 of The Local Small Business Coach Podcast


Hiring People for Your Small Business in a Tight Labor Market


In today’s episode:  With unemployment at an all-time low, many local business owners are struggling to find good help. Whether it is the first hire or just replacing folks or growing your team, you always want to have the best people possible.

But what if those folks aren’t walking in your door or being recommended by those you trust? How do you find good people?

In this episode, we take a deeper dive into what you can do to find good people. Here are the areas we will discuss further:  

  • #1 Way - Great Help is Out There – Go to Them
  • Using Help from Retired Folks
  • Partner with Veterans Groups
  • College Kids
  • High School Councilors - Kids Not Going to College
  • Folks Looking for Part-Time Work to Payoff Bills / Ends Meet
  • Always Be Looking - Don't Hold on to Bad Apples

And don’t forget, once you hire the best, remember, it is even more important to grow & develop them.


QUOTE OF THE WEEK: “Hiring the right people takes time, the right questions and a healthy dose of curiosity. What do you think is the most important factor when building your team? For us, it’s personality.” —Richard Branson
