Zeal Playbook Series: HR 101

August 29, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm UTC-5


HR 101 for Start-Ups and Small Businesses
Moving from ‘Wing and a Prayer’ to ‘Soaring High’!

Session Description:
We know that fully 95% of employers throughout the United States have no human resources professional on staff, yet they still have to manage recruiting and hiring, compensation and benefits, policies and performance issues, training programs, federal and state employment laws, and creating a culture where their people can not only perform well, but thrive and excel!

Start-ups and small employers may be at a disadvantage against large organizations in some respects, but there are ways that they can compete, even in the areas of HR management. This session will identify a few key elements that will help those organizations move from operating on a ‘wing and a prayer’ to ‘soaring high’!

Session Outline:
This session is a one-hour starter overview of HR for start-ups and small employers – covering those elements that ought to be considered from day one, or if not from day one, from this day forward! Some of the session elements will include: People, Compliance, and Culture.
