Are you finding all the people you need in your business? Or do you have trouble finding reliable folks?
Susan Urbach at the Oklahoma Small Business Development Center Blog has posted on this topic.
The comment has been – we just can’t find people who are willing to work hard. If they want to come to work, they are crack heads or do other drugs. So they find immigrant workers, and there you get into the issue of you get all the proper documentation and you hope it’s not forged. But it seems to be a real problem.
I’d really like to hear feedback out there from other small businesses – are you frustrated as well? Or if you have been able to find good employees, how did you find them?
Urbach does not allow comments on her blog, but she will take emails (preferably from Oklahoma businesses) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Anyone can comment here. What is your experience with finding good people?
