MBA970 Q&A Wednesday: Should I hire a family member?
Family is family, but business is business. Should the two mix? Many entrepreneurs have to ask themselves this very question. What’s the risk/reward balance of hiring and managing the people closest to you? For some businesses, it can work beautifully. Take the husband & wife team of our host Omar and producer Nicole, for example. For others, it can raise complications that hurt the business — or worse, the personal relationship. Today, we discuss the unique challenges and benefits of working with family. We show you how to adjust your human resources approach to accommodate family, protect your personal connection, and avoid the appearance of nepotism. With the right approach, you can work effectively and professionally with family, and enrich your entrepreneurial experience. Learn how to keep it in the family — Click Play!
