Let’s face it – hiring is an interruption. In an organization, an empty seat is like an open wound. It’s a painful and stressful distraction. When a job opens, you suddenly go from having one job to having to do three. You have to handle your regular responsibilities, oversee the workload of the empty position, and conduct hours of interviews to fill that job. Adding to the stress of these overwhelming responsibilities is that it’s hard to serve your customers and achieve your business goals when you don’t have enough people on your team. Opportunities end up being lost to competitors, and you end up taking the blame.
