A seasoned local HR professional, with small business and non-profit experience, presents an overview of key concepts necessary to manage the employee life cycle (from to hire to fire).  Participants will leave with an increased awareness of legally protected groups and best practice solutions to address common personnel challenges. Practical solutions include how to:  write a helpful job description, create meaningful interview questions, conduct background checks, develop an employee handbook checklist, preparing for the first day of employment.  Also covered are typical small business mistakes such as using contractors and interns, misclassifying workers, and managing overtime. The instructor’s style makes the program fun and allows ample time for individual questions. This is an overview program with plenty of “take away” resources such as HR checklists and external web links.  This is the right workshop for you if you are considering hiring, are about to hire, or you just need some new ideas to deal with persistent “people” issues that are keeping you from the strategic responsibilities of growing your business.
