Tips for Hiring Your First Employee

Loading the player ...

Small-business expert Marie Forleo, founder of Rich, Happy & Hot, speaks with Entrepreneur's Diana Ransom about how successful business owners hire employees without a human-resources department. They start by:

  • Describing their ideal job candidate, detailing their ethics, skills and responsibilities.
  • Talking with their accountants about the tax requirements and differences in handling the tax treatment of full-time versus contract workers.
  • Securing a nondisclosure agreement to protect your intellectual property and other trade secrets.
  • Creating a simple online application using sites like Survey Monkey to streamline the applicant-screening process.
