PAHR – Step #1:Prepare”

This step helps determine the need for a new hire, what a superior performer will look like, what it will cost and the process for finding them.  You have to know “what” you are looking for in order to find it.

  • Some of the items in this process can be used at no cost. If you have some ideas that may be of benefit to others, share them with us and we will consider adding them to the site so that others can benefit from them too!
  • Other areas in this process can be purchased. Most of them are too big to provide all the options available or for us to give full samples of it. Contact us and we will be happy to send your more information for your areas of interest.
