HR basics: Growing from start-up to 20+ employees

You’ve done all the work to get your business up and running, and you are starting to see the momentum build. Suddenly, you find yourself starting to overflow and feel the need to bring in your first employee. Or maybe you’ve had 5 employees the last couple years, and now see your business ready to expand to the next level.   

How do you know when it’s time to expand your team? How do you grow from start-up to small business without losing that start-up adrenaline?  

Join us for a two-part series “There’s No ‘I’ in Team: HR Basics When Growing from Start-Up to 20+ Employees.”   

In this series, we’ll take you through the key considerations and actions you can take to make sure the culture you’re growing in your organization is the one you want. During these two sessions, we will guide you through ways in which business owners can ensure that their HR and people practices are supporting the strategies and goals you have for your business. 

  • Session 1 - April 9: Developing the Culture You Want, What Compliance Basics Do I Need to Consider?
  • Session 2 - April 16: Recruiting & Interviewing, Hiring/Onboarding, Managing Performance, Engaging & Retaining Your Employees

Register once for both sessions!
