Recruitment

A business needs a mixture of people with different skills and these skills may change as a business grows and develops. Bringing in new people has the added benefit of new ideas on how to do things, often acting as a positive stimulus for existing staff. Additionally, replacing staff who leave with people who not only have the same expertise but fit into the culture of the business is important.
