How Do I Hire My First Employee?

Congratulations, startup is now a reality. You’ve established and registered your business name, created your products and services list and are now ready to hire your first employee. You may be worried how you’re going to tackle managing a team, along with running a business. You can begin growing your team with Untappt. This is the best human resources startup platform that can ease the transition from a one-person operation to a fully functioning team.

 There are many concerns with hiring a new employee, and one of them is finding the time to hire the right one. It can be tempting to hire the first person off the street who claims they can do the job. But often you want to set certain parameters in place. You need the right person for the right job.

 What qualities, skills, education, and experience do you require with an employee? Often there are certain specialties that need a specific education, along with diplomas, certificates, and licenses.

 There may be some careers where an employee must have a background check to ensure they can handle finances or sensitive healthcare information. You may need to conform to state or federal laws with certain jobs.

 Untappt can handle the recruitment of your first employee for you, or your 10th or more, so you can spend the time on the more important tasks of your business.

 Untappt is similar to hiring a recruitment service, but different. Regular recruiters can be expensive, and you may not be able to cover the costs as a new business startup. They can also have a “hiring fee” that is based on a percentage of a new employee’s starting salary.

 Instead, you can let the Untappt hiring platform tackle the problem of finding a startup team for you. You can say goodbye to expensive recruiters.

 To begin we’ll need to learn a bit about you. We’ll give you a custom playbook which will assist you in the hiring process. This will include personalized training, because no matter how well-prepared a new recruit may be, they’ll still need to be trained in your job specifics.

Hiring costs can be decreased and you can better spend the money on your future. When you join Untappt you’ll have access to an exclusive community where you get 24/7 support and advice.

 During the beginning of your startup you’ll want to hire the right people at the right time. These people will help you through the next hurdle in the growth of your business. And when you’re ready to expand again, we’ll still be here for you to help you with hiring the next team.

 There are different packages, depending on which point you are in the your startup. They begin at Scrappy, then Scaling, then High Growth. If you’re uncertain which package is right for you, we can advise you.
