The challenge of attracting talented people to a start-up business is discussed by Issie Lapowsky on Inc.com. The author observes that good employees are valuable and essential for growth. With that in mind, she imparts some advice for entrepreneurs looking to recruit the right kind of people for their business.
The first piece of advice is to engage in face-to-face interaction. Lapowsky observes: "No matter how small the internet has made the world, experts still recommend in-person networking as the No. 1 way to recruit talent."
She recommends researching local industry groups and associations, and quotes Martin Zwilling, founder and CEO of consulting group Startup Professionals, who says: "Every type of business has their own meetings. You'll find people who know your business and are looking for opportunities."
