Got Talent Issues

Now here’s a dilemma. You just lost one of your best talent. I mean she was great, she did everything when asked, she knew how to get to certain clients even when it seemed like the deal was lost, she would find solutions where there seemed to be none, she was always smiling even in tough times, and she made sure everybody had coffee in the afternoon without fail. Now she’s up and left you for another boss because you didn’t give her that raise she wanted. Boy, companies play dirty these days, just walk right in and pay her twice what you were paying her. How exactly are you going to replace her anyway, have you thought about that? You’re going to be digging through a lot of applications to find an office manager that good. You could hire a recruiting or temp agency but those could be costly options and besides you only need one person for now. Or you could put up a help wanted sign and dig your way through applicant after applicant who are probably not qualified for the job. Or…

Before long your office will be singing and dancing just like the old days. Just make sure you pay this person a competitive salary so you don’t have to go through this again.
