We’ve all been hearing about the hiring shortages on the news. It’s tough to find employees right now. But you don’t want just any employee—you want great employees. This three-hour class will talk you through recruiting, so you have a pool of qualified candidates to select from, and then, through the steps of hiring. When you hire a new employee, you want to set both themselves and your business up for success, so we’ll also cover how to get them started on the right foot.

Bring all your questions, because there will be time for a Q&A session. Each participant will get a workbook to use during class, and everyone will leave with a toolkit of resources, including templates, worksheets, and helpful links.

What To Expect:

Participants will be able to speak and interact with the instructor and others in a live, in-person session. There will be ample time for Q&A at the end, but we also have plenty of group discussions planned during the session as well. There will be two ten-minute breaks to allow for checking your email, grabbing a cup of coffee, etc.

Course Materials:

  • All participants will receive a follow-along workbook to take notes, follow instructions, and complete exercises during the session.
  • Presentation slides and exercises will be provided to all participants.
  • Participants will also get a free toolkit - a collection of templates, forms, worksheets, and other resources that will be made available at the end of the class.
