Your employees will come from a number of resources such as newspaper ads and referrals from other employees. We will take you step by step through the advertising, interviewing and hiring process for new employees. We will also show you how using a bonus and incentive plan can help to retain good employees.
What facilities do I need to manage my business?
To properly operate and manage your business you will need approximately 800-1200 square feet of office and storage space.
