About the Event

As new businesses look to make their first hires, many employers find themselves making mistakes that could cost them great candidates. Too often, companies place heavy emphasis on attracting new hires, and too little on keeping them.

Small businesses might be missing two key ingredients needed to successfully introduce new talent to their team: a smooth onboarding process and a retention plan. In this webinar, Shashonna Duckworth, Director at Urban League Cleveland, and Moses Balian, HR Consulting Manager at Justworks, will discuss the HR strategies, back-office resources, and best practices needed to attract top talent, onboard them seamlessly, and structure growth paths that make employees excited to stay.

What businesses need to attract, hire, and onboard the right talent
How to set a plan for employees’ futures at your organization
How to retain employees by offering competitive benefits and perks
