Recession Tip: Hire Sales People
by admin on April 18, 2011
When companies start laying people off, the great employees fear for their jobs. If youâ€™re hiring salespeople when everyone is laying them off, the positive buzz that youâ€™re still hiring will start to spread – even to customers.
Whatâ€™s even better? Imagine if you hired one of your competitorâ€™s best salespeople—what would happen then? It would impact both of your companies in precisely the way you want to in a competitive world.
I know it seems odd that while in the middle of a recession youâ€™d want to hire more people, but the people you are hiring are the rainmakers.Â Youâ€™re hiring people to increase sales, add money to your gross margin, and increase buzz about your company and brands.
