February Webinar: Hiring and Retaining the Right Talent         

Why does talent matter?

The ability to recruit and retain the best talent sets great companies apart from others.  Successful entrepreneurs understand that their talented employees are their best assets. Hiring qualified talent helps businesses grow and gives them a competitive advantage. On the other hand, a company’s failure to hire the right talent decreases productivity and disrupts the culture of an organization.  Without the cash flow of their deeper-pocketed corporate counterparts, small businesses, in particular, have an even greater incentive to avoid the costly mistakes of bad hires.

In this Series, participants will discover:

  • Practical methods for hiring the right people;
  • What are the pitfalls of recession hiring;
  • How to save money by avoiding hiring mistakes; and
  • How to retain the best employees.
