When it comes to recruitment, any small business owner will say finding and hiring the right staff can be an enormous challenge.

Which is why Jaye Edwards, founder of Edwards and Co hair salons, says it’s crucial to advertise correctly to encourage the best people to apply.

For Jaye that comes down to what his business offers talent. Whether that means five weeks annual leave or training and education, it’s important to target staff based on what they want, not what you want.

Key takeaways:
-Advertise for roles based on what the staff member wants, not what you want
-Onboard staff by having them shadow for two weeks until they have improved their skills just by watching
-You need to work on the business and not in the business to grow successfully.
