hiring toolsIt's the middle of July - how are your summer projects coming along? Back in April you promised yourself you would get the gutters cleaned out, but have you actually gotten around to doing so?

Don't worry, we know how it goes. At first, the summertime is inspiring. You have a whole list of projects you just can't wait to start. But then the weekends begin flying by, and before you know it, it's 90 degrees out and painting the siding is the last thing you want to do.

The bad news is we're challenging you to finish a summer project, but the good news is that it doesn't involve heat, humidity or insects! Wondering what we're talking about? Probably not seeing as the title gives it away...

Build Yourself an HR Toolkit 

We're not saying that shortcuts are the way to go, but if there's a way to make things easier, then by all means, give it a shot. So if you're planning on making a new hire this summer, why not make things a little easier on yourself by developing an HR toolkit. 

Now get your hiring hardhat on, it's time to fill that toolkit with four key components.

Hiring Tools

What kind of hiring tools? Well you're going to have to read the eBook to find out. But good hiring tools will help to recruit the most qualified candidates, interview them effectively and verify their skill-set. Sounds like it'll make hiring a walk in the park, right?

Invoicing Tools
