One in three employees either do not trust their employer, or feel that the employer does not look after the best interest of the employee.
On the other hand , a employer would not hire a person if they felt they could not trust that employee, should that trust be broken, very often the relationship would end.
Growing a small business from a owner-operator, to employing its first manager to assist with the quoting process, accounts etc, requires placing a fair amount of trust into a person that often has very little vested interest in the business or the outcome.
Many small service related businesses get started after working for a company in the same industry.
If you choose growth in your business, trust is a non negotiable.
Trust in yourself and grow.
