HR 101 for Small Businesses

August 27, 2019 – HR 101 for Small Businesses – Avoiding Human Resource Pitfalls.
9:00 – 11:00 am
Location:  EFSC Melbourne Campus, 3865 N Wickham Road, Bldg. 10 Room 206
Human Resources is about people, whether in regards to recruitment, management, or other forms of direction and assistance. It has a huge effect on the culture and environment in your workplace, setting the tone for how employees communicate, settle disputes, and work with each other. Your employees are one of your greatest assets. You must protect and manage that asset.
In this seminar, you will learn what you need to know as a new or growing small business for managing HR in your workplace. We will cover staffing your business, from interviewing to retention to preventing attrition; why you need an employee handbook and what to include; employee relations and how to handle work disputes; how to set up employee files and display required Labor Law posters; best practices for everyday personnel (and self) management; and other topics helpful to your business. The program is NO Cost. Reservations are required. Call the FSBDC at 433-5570 or 433-5514 or register online:  http://floridasbdc.org/get-training/
