The Cost of Churn in Small Business

HELLO | TWELVE, SEPTEMBER 2017

Another summer is now in the books, and wow, what an intense summer it's been for us here at Delegate. My team has been pushed to the max as we’ve navigated some really tricky stuff!

As an entrepreneur, finding and retaining talent is one of the most crucial parts of growing your business. Because we have small teams, getting it right equates to growth and getting it wrong leads down a cyclic path of lost energy spent hiring, training and re-training. All of which kills productivity and profitability, costing us time (limited), money (limited) and leading to burnout (boo!).
