How To Buy a Business: The Complete Roadmap

A lot of people think that when you own a company, it needs to be built from scratch - pulled by the bootstraps from the ground floor up to the executive suite.

How To Create An Effective Onboarding and Training Program For Employees

At any company, preparing people for the work they’re going to do is a vital aspect of hiring new employees. 

Onboarding is when a company provides new workers with the training and information they need to acclimate to their new position and it is one of the most effective ways to ensure that good employees stick around.

The process of onboarding new employees has proven particularly important for Acquira’s Sourcing Team. It’s the Sourcing Team’s job to find businesses that aren’t listed with traditional brokers but are looking to sell to a committed buyer. 

Due to the nature of the job, those working for the Sourcing Team need to be able to think quickly. They need to be able to answer any question that might arise in the course of their day.

But before you can begin training folks, you need to have qualified candidates.
