If you’re looking to hire your first employees, understanding today’s hiring landscape is essential.

Outsourcing tasks like data entry, computer setup and repair, or development of legal contracts is an option many small businesses choose. Increasingly, business owners are also using professional services to handle more complex work such as payroll processing and tax preparation, HR support, and other administrative functions in order to stay focused on more strategic parts of the business.
