Higher quality hiring: How to grow your workforce with intention

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As a startup owner(s) it is hard to know when you need help and what help you do need as you are hiring your first employee. While your startup grows, you want to attract the right talent, and those right people might be friends and family, or they might be strangers, and they might be working remotely from another city or state. How do you tie it all together? Of course, this all must be aligned with your company culture, mission, and vision. In the best-case scenario, individual employee and departmental goals are aligned with the organization’s initiatives. In this 60-minute session, you will learn the state and federal requirements when hiring employees, how to recruit a diverse workforce, and how to implement that talent with appreciation, and reflecting your organization’s personality.
