The Funeral Director's Guide to Human Resources

The single largest cost of operating a funeral home is almost always how you manage your work force.

  • Encourage the best candidates to seek employment at your firm.
  • Improve how you screen candidates and conduct job interviews.
  • Help new hires get off to a great start.

  • Pick people with the right skillset to succeed in sales positions.
