New Hires For Your Closet Company

By Neil Balter | Posted: 08/21/2013 10:40AM


Neil Balter The economy is recovering and the closet and home storage business is picking up again. To stay ahead of the game and to provide the best service possible to our dealers, we recently hired an additional Regional Sales Manager, a Director of Flooring and a Training Coordinator. Many of our dealers are realizing they need to staff up as well.

The people you employ have the power to make or break your business. This makes your hiring decisions extremely important. After 35 years of running my own business, I have learned a few things about hiring (and keeping) employees. For what it’s worth, I thought I would share some of my “lessons learned” with you, so I’ve decided to write a few blogs on the subject. I’ll be candid about my mistakes and I’ll call out the pitfalls hoping you won’t fall into them too.
