Hiring a new employee can be exciting, but it can also be stressful and grueling if you have trouble finding the right employee. Sometimes when you’re short-staffed, you want to get someone in quick, but there are a few steps you don’t want to skip. You also want to keep a few things in mind to make sure the person is a good fit for your company. Hiring the wrong person just because you need someone can not only hurt your company, but it’s expensive! If you or your new hire end up unhappy, you will have to replace them again anyway. Nearly 44 percent of people who leave their job do so within six months of starting a new position.
