Description

The Round Rock Public Library and the Austin SCORE will offer a series of free workshops for small business owners (or those who are interested in starting their own business) on Fridays, from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m., January 19 through March 23. SCORE is a nonprofit association dedicated to helping small businesses get off the ground, grow and achieve their goals through education and mentorship.

These free timely workshops, presented by recognized experts and practitioners, will cover a variety of issues facing small business owners and entrepreneurs including financial issues, marketing, and strategic planning.

Join us on Friday, Feb. 2 for HR101: Employee Hiring and Retention, presented by Cherylann Campbell. Running a small business requires you to wear a lot of hats. This program prepares you to effectively deal with the “human” element and navigate the myriad of compliance issues when you hire, fire, and retain employees. Best practices, practical checklists and helpful “free” resources are provided by a seasoned local HR professional. A seasoned local HR professional, with small business and non-profit experience, presents an overview of key concepts necessary to manage the employee life cycle (from to hire to fire). Participants will leave with an increased awareness of legally protected groups and best practice solutions to address common personnel challenges

Practical solutions include how to: write a helpful job description, create meaningful interview questions, conduct background checks, develop an employee handbook checklist, preparing for the first day of employment. Also covered are typical small business mistakes such as using contractors and interns, misclassifying workers, and managing overtime. The instructor’s style makes the program fun and allows ample time for individual questions. This is an overview program with plenty of “take away” resources such as HR checklists and external web links. This is the right workshop for you if you are considering hiring, are about to hire or you just need some new ideas to deal with persistent “people” issues keeping you from the strategic responsibilities of growing your business.
