HR: Employee Hiring, Firing & Retention

Feb 17 12:00 pm — 1:30 pm

Event Details

Part 2 in a 3-part series of Human Resources for Small Businesses

Finding a perfect employee can prove challenging to even the best organizations and experienced managers. Even one bad hire can have extremely negative consequences that undermine revenue production, employee productivity and morale, and can also drain time resources in many ways. However, a great employee has the opposite effect allowing for greater sustainability, structure, stability and more. 

This class will teach you how to make better hiring choices by helping you to understand how best to find, hire, and vett employees. Employee turnover has increased over 88%, in the last decade and 27% have left a job, since 2018. With trends like these you cannot afford to lose out on the best candidates. 

We’ll give a broad overview of critical topics that will include:

  • Learn to avoid common hiring pitfalls and find better job candidates
  • Learn to hire for capability vs. education
  • Interview techniques that will help you discover deceivers and diamonds in the rough
