Addison County Chamber Business Seminar: Keys to Successful Recruitment & Retention

We will cover topics including:
• The Recruitment Process – job descriptions, advertising an opening, screening resumes, interviewing, and the decision to hire.
• Benefits as a Recruitment Tool – what are people looking for and how to select what benefits to offer.
• Onboarding and Retention – employee orientation, training, engagement and business culture
