MEET OUR NEWEST MEMBERS
BUSINESS TIP OF THE MONTH
Quickly recognizing when a new hire isn’t working out with the current team, and then parting ways, is vital to your startup’s success. Using up all of your resources while waiting for the right time to let go of a new employee can wreak havoc on your small business. More often than not, the feeling of discontent is mutual between employer and employee. One way to lessen the pressure of hiring and firing when things don’t work out according to plan is to implement a 90 day trial period. After 60 days, meet with your new hire to assess whether each party is happy and productive. If there are improvements needed, give them the following 30 days to implement these changes or go your separate ways.
