Often times, when businesses or organizations grow, owners try to hang onto duties that they should have surrendered long ago. Things change and as companies grow, the entire premise of hiring and making sure the right employees are around and placed in the right roles becomes a talent within itself. Typically, the best thing for owners to do is delegate hiring to someone with both the time and the expertise needed to hire the correct people.
At one company of over 250 employees, an owner required that he be involved with all aspects of the hiring. In fact, he hung onto the hiring so tightly that if others made an offer to someone without his involvement, he would rescind the offer. The net effect on employee morale was negative and he lost all respect from his employees.
It is paramount that the right people be placed in the right jobs and responsibilities are delegated to the best people. Without trust in the best people for the jobs best-suited to them, nearly all endeavors will be undermined.
