Event description


Seattle is one of the fastest growing cities in the US with the cost of living continuing to rise. It's near impossible to hire and retain great talent when housing prices exceed what most can afford.

Whether you’re a brand new business, or need some inspiration to fill roles that have been vacant for far too long, join Yelp’s Seattle business community and Instawork for a conversation about how you can tackle this issue. We'll discuss creative ways to hire and keep the talent you've brought on.

Before and after the presentation, attendees will be able to speak with staff from Instawork and Yelp. Your Yelp Local Business Partner will be on hand to answer any questions about your Yelp listing and the free tools for business owners. Instawork will have staff on site to discuss their platform and provide insights on the topics they present on. You are encouraged to come with any and all questions!

BONUS! All restaurants in attendance will get one free job post via Instawork ($60 value) and $300 in ad credit from Yelp. PLUS, we will select one restaurant to receive unlimited job posts in one month (up to $600 value)!

Our event starts promptly at 6pm.

6:20 - 6:50pm: Meet, Greet & Eat
