Don’t get stuck in the sole proprietor trap as the owner of your tax/accounting business. Instead focus on hiring the right people who you could see filling your place and making your business grow.
But hiring can feel like a hit or miss process. Sometimes you don’t know what kind of employee you have until you put work in front of them.
So, what kind of guidelines do you put in place for hiring the right employees? A few of them…
- Have a vision for what you want your business to be
- Fill your gaps, find your complements
- Hire for traits, not just skills
- Think about team fit
TaxProMarkter Founders Nate Hagerty and Troy Lakey talk about the specifics that guided them in the hiring process and helped them replace themselves and grow the agency.
– “Sometimes people with the best skills aren’t the best fit.
– Let your culture guide you with finding the right people.
– Set up a three month trial for new hires.
