Two of the greatest challenges for any business are hiring the right people and keeping them. Employees, and more importantly their contributions are a business’ most important assets. Products, pricing, location, market positioning are all elements of a successful business, but a buoyant economy, job creation numbers in six figures and a decline in unemployment makes the competition for top performers an imposing challenge to any organization.

They would, for the same reasons, likely have little interest in being employed by a company.
