Session Learning Objectives:

Participants will gain an understanding and checklist of the steps needed for the small business owner when they begin the lifecycle of bringing on employees to their business. Topics will cover the steps to consider when hiring employees, retaining your employees, the impact of regular communication and performance evaluations, and the steps needed to protect the business when the employee transitions from employment. Additionally, participants will be able to ask questions regarding the importance of managing the complexity and risk of payroll, how to create successful employee handbooks and policies, and the risks to be aware of when terminating an employee.
