When you are the driving force of your business, you wear many hats, and human resource manager is one of them, and like most small business owners it is not your expertise. Tom Powner from Career Thinker Inc, will share some insights to help you land the best employees.

When a small business is growing, attracting and hiring the best talent is key for success. Many small business owners overlook some key steps to increase the quality of finding and hiring new team members. These two seminars will be packed with advice, resources and best practices on hiring for your growing small or startup businesses.
