    singam I haven't read any books that deal directly with this subject, although some biographies that I have read of successful business people did touch on it. Can you please let us know what type of employees you are looking for and what industry they will work in and we will try to give you some practical tips.

    To get those kinds of people Singam I would say that the best places to advertise your requirements and to look for contractors with the required skills would be in Freelance Sites and Webmaster and Trading Forums, such as those listed in our Useful Online Business Resources thread.

    As regards a book on that topic I'd suggest you have a look at Outsourcing Web Projects: 6 Steps to a Smarter Business. I've read it myself some time ago and there are some very practical and useful tips in it.

    To get hire a good people, you can actually ask other webmaster suggestion on the people who work for them before. Besides, you might consider to try service, hire them for small project and check their work. I know this is taking time but sure you will get someone who can satisfy your requirement after some trial.

    On the other hand, you might need to be a good employer as well, or you will lose the good employee.
    Many people wish to get "first class" work from their employee but pay for the "third class" cost

    I think it is just plain luck and a little bit of technique when it comes to hiring great employees. It can be tricky because with just one wrong move, it could waste your time and money.
    Just a small tip, in one article I've recently read, there's this thing they call a "grape shot approach to hiring." What they do is, first, you grab as many people as possible and test them; second, interview those who passed the test; third, give them a longer test and figure out who did the best (also consider the most attentive and who took initiative); fourth, figure out who you would hire and who you wouldn't and fifth, hire the ones you would hire and keep the others on file if you need to scale later. :)
    I hope it helps.
