Tip 11 - Think about recruitment

Recruitment is one of the most important processes in any business. Your organisation cannot grow effectively unless you are hiring the right people.

Depending on the success of previous recruitments, you may also consider hiring an agency to help you fill positions – but make sure that you properly understand the costs first.
