Cheers To Business | ep 26 | Gia Wiggins

In this episode, Karen and Cadie have Ms. Gia Wiggins of Morale Resources in the Deep Fried Studios. Gia talks about the difference between HR and payroll, the top do's and dont's, finding staff for small businesses, keeping them, and when you have to let them go. The ladies talk about the philosophy behind Human Resources and staff engagement.


Gia Wiggins's three biggest HR lessons:

1. Always treat someone with respect, whether you are hiring them or letting them go.

2. Whenever you have to let someone go, document their performance and have a talk with them.

3.  You don't always need an HR department, but just make sure that you can deal with your employee's issues.


Big Questions:

1. What is the difference between payroll and HR?

2. What does HR do?

3. How do address staffing and the hiring process?

4.  What's one of the biggest mistakes people make when hiring someone?

5.  What do you do during the termination process?
