Marietta, GA (Vocus) October 25, 2010
The Family Business Consulting Group, Inc. ® (efamilybusiness.com) announced today, that their vice president, Carol Ryan, was recently featured in an article in USA TODAY. The article titled, How to Handle Some Sticky Situations, addresses the topic of hiring family and friends. Ms. Ryan was among the entrepreneurs and workplace experts contributing to the article and was tasked with providing USA TODAY with some guidelines on this topic.
In the article, Ms. Ryan touches on nepotism and the importance of being open with your employees about this topic. She is quoted with saying that, “in a family-run business, some employees may get special treatment simply because of their bloodline. That's OK — as long as all the employees know that the business has a culture where an owner's son, daughter or cousin will receive some privileges. The beauty of a family business: You get to make your own rules. But setting expectations (for other employees) is the No. 1 thing."
“We are very excited about the USA TODAY article and we are honored that Ms. Ryan was selected among such a high caliber of industry experts.” say Ken Bosshart, FBCG Operations Manager.
