hiring Feb 16, 2022

Want to scale your business by hiring employees? Need to hire based on a vacant position in your business? In this episode, I am going to walk you through the entire hiring process (from start to finish). This is an HR function, and is also an employment law function as well, as there are many times companies unknowingly take certain actions that end them in legal trouble. We will also discuss the important paperwork that is required to hire an employee and common mistakes. Hint: asking the graduation date or salary from a prior job is a no-no.

In this episode, we will discuss the following:

Identifying the need for a position

  1. Planning a budget
  2. Dos and don’s of what to include in a job description
  3. What might end you up in legal trouble during an interview
  4. New Hire Paperwork

Are you interested in scaling your business by hiring? Do you know the steps you need to take to hire your first employee? I provide a 90 minute consultation where I will conduct an in depth audit of your business and guide you on the steps you need to take to make sure you are properly protected.
