Founders are the principal initiators of companies and therefore have long-term goals for their companies. There stay I the company helps the company keep their vision clear and work towards it. However, with constant influence it reaches a point where new blood has to be injected in the organization in line with the dynamic changes.
Based on competitive advantage, long-term stay of the founder gives a rich human resource element in the company in line with human-based theory. A founder can also a clear vision for the company and implement strategies since he is the one who understands it clearly. This gives an upper hand over other players in a competitive market. A founder can market the company since he attaches a sense of ownership in it. He can do this with passion.
Based on competitive strategies, it is difficult to innovate since the status quo is maintained. Therefore, other market players can have an advantage. Differentiation might be difficult since the founder wants to stick with his original product narrowing the company market base. (Charles-Hill, 2012). Iam of the opinion that founders should stay in their organizations because they are the one who originally had the idea and the clear vision of the company.There is more advantage of founders staying long in their companies than the disadvantage.They will have an influence the people since they are emotionally attached to the company.

Whether there are unethical considerations when hiring external employees as opposed to internal
When companies hire from outside, it is necessary to follow your strategy of the organization. Most companies act unethically by the fact that they know the weaknesses and strengths of internal employees. This makes it difficult for internal employees to be recruited.
A company has to act reasonably and recruit an external employee especially when entering into new markets or locations.
My opinion is that foreign employees are better since they inject new blood into the organization as opposed to internal recruitment. However, internal recruitment should also be considered in some circumstances where the organization wants to chart long-term goals and strategies.
