Hire Smart Sessions

EXECUTIVE INTRODUCTION

Intuit president and CEO Brad Smith and LinkedIn CEO and Intuit Board Member Jeff Weiner kick off the day with their thoughts on the importance of small businesses finding, hiring and keeping the right talent.

PROTECT YOURSELF AND STAY COMPLIANT

As an employer, you have specific payroll responsibilities that are required by the government. A compliance expert helps you understand all the steps you need to complete before and after you hire to keep you compliant with federal and state regulations.

SMALL BUSINESS PANEL

Hear from successful small businesses about the good, the bad, and the ugly of hiring their first employees, and learn tips and tricks for wherever you are in the journey.

ASKING ALL THE RIGHT QUESTIONS

You may have done interviews before, but the stakes are greater when you’re hiring for your own business. Get tips from experienced small business owners on which critical questions to ask and how to evaluate candidates during interviews.

IS IT TIME TO HIRE?

When you can’t find time to keep up with paperwork, or worse, pursue new ways to grow your business, then it might be time to hire. Hear from expert Rhonda Abrams on how to identify the type of position you need and some affordable and creative ways to find the right person.

ATTRACT WORKERS AND KEEP THEM HAPPY

One way to attract and retain good workers is to offer rewards and benefits. Review best practices from a successful small-business employee-recruiting expert that will bring out the best in your employees and fit within your budget.

FULL-TIME EMPLOYEE VS. CONTRACTOR

It’s a tough decision that may have a bigger impact on your business than you think. Hear insights from a legal expert on what to consider, and gain the confidence to make the best decision.

HOW TO BE THE BEST BOSS YOU CAN BE

You probably started your business so you could be your own boss—not someone else’s—but you have a responsibility to your employees once you hire. Find out from an expert executive and leadership coach how best to engage, motivate and help your workers grow.

FINDING THE PERFECT FIT

Unfortunately you can’t just sit and wait for the perfect employee to walk through the door. Learn from a LinkedIn expert about the hiring search tools available today and how to use them to find the best candidate.

WHAT TO DO WHEN IT’S NOT WORKING OUT

Not every person you hire ends up being a perfect fit. Learn from an HR expert how to know when it’s time for a worker to go, and what rules you need to follow.
