In addition, the seminar addresses the common types of contracts small business owners encounter and provides attendees with tips for entering contracts. Finally, the seminar will also touch on protecting the intellectual property of a small business.

More Info:

Hiring the right person is the key to success to any business. In a recent study it was estimated that it costs over $65,000 to hire one 25K level employee. With that much money at stake you can’t afford to be wrong. Two of the Top Five reasons for a business to fail directly relate to interviewing and hiring properly. The majority of businesses large and small do less than a decent job in hiring which ends up costing their businesses loss of sales, upset customers and creating internal frustrations as well as potential lawsuits. You will leave this workshop with far more confidence in how to find, interview, hire, motivate, compensate and avoid or prevent lawsuits. Doing it wrong can cost you tens of thousands of dollars. You will learn how to do it right and recruit & keep the best staff members.

Subjects covered:

• What Are You Looking For?
• Creating Job Descriptions & Ads
• Resumes
• Finding The Applicants
• Questions To Ask
• Interview Stoppers
• Testing
• References
• Making An Offer
