Name: Hiring Best Practices for Small Businesses with 75 employees or less
Date: April 18, 2019
Time: 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM EDT
Event Description:

Note: This training is best suited for small businesses that do not have an in-house recruiter or HR staff.

Come and join other Small Business Owners, CEO's/Presidents, and Senior Managers to learn more about the best hiring practices for Small Businesses with fewer than 75 employees. Let's face it; your business doesn't have the budget for a full-time recruiter, nor the budget to advertise everywhere in drumming up interest.

To make things worse, the tight job market with record unemployment rates at 3.8% has made things even more difficult for you, a small business, to find the best, talented employees that meet your needs.

Here are a few topics and struggles that small businesses seem to face, and which we will discuss, address, and correct:

So, how can I compete with big organizations for talented people?

How do I differentiate myself from the other businesses competing for the same people?

Ok, I now have a list of applicants who are interested in and have applied to my job opening, Now what?

How do I choose the right person to hire?

Finally, I now have a great new employee, now what?

Businesses, hiring, and the law: I'm a small business, do any laws apply to me and my hiring efforts? The short answer is a big YES!

Oops, I hired the wrong person. What do I do? Can't I just fire them?

**Space is limited. This event is open to the first 12 people that sign-up**
