In every area of our business operations, we want to avoid as many mistakes as we can. That also goes for hiring and staffing in our companies. Putting the wrong candidate in a position can have lasting effects that can put your company back tremendously.
We found quite a few mistakes listed in a recent article in Entrepreneur Magazine recently and many of these we agree with. And with hiring growing at a rapid pace in the past several months, it can be easy to make a mistake.
