Hire Smart events help small, Southwest Georgia business owners

SBA Hire Smart Event

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A big problem some small business owners have is hiring the best people for their company.

That’s according to University of Georgia Business Consultant Rob Martin, who helps host Hire Smart events.

A Hire Smart event was held Thursday in downtown Albany.

The goal is to help small businesses with marketing, planning strategy and hiring.

Martin said there are a few key things employers should look for when hiring and it could help you if you’re looking for a job.

“Number one, I’ve got to find somebody who wants to come to work and will show up on time. But a good employee is someone who aligns well with the needs and values of the business and will help you move that business forward,” said Martin.

You can contact the UGA extension office in your county to learn more about the Hire Smart events.
