Event description

Description

A free practical 2 hour workshop for small business owners who want to master the hiring process and find the right fit for their team.



We know hiring for your growing business can be daunting. A mis-hire can be costly and stressful, and hiring without a strategy wastes valuable time. But get it right, and you'll strengthen and diversify the capability of your business. Find the right people for your team and you'll feel supported and free to focus on what you do best as a business owner.

The Hiring Workshop takes the stress and mystery out of the hiring process by sharing the insight and techniques we’ve gained from our experience working in human resources and communications.

We're cutting through the noise and delivering you a jam-packed 2-hour workshop in person where you'll learn how to:

  • Outline an actionable job description based on solving a problem in your business, focusing on skills not a personality type.

  • Get those fluffy ducks in a row! Let's establish a basic checklist with budget, employment types, super, payroll, tax and useful resources to keep handy.

  • Apply your business values as a foundation to hiring and why this is crucial for the long term.

  • Create a compelling job ad that grabs the attention of the right people.

  • Be resourceful and tap into industry, educational and professional networks to find talent - sometimes you need to think inside and outside the box!

  • Build a talent pool and positive brand impression by effectively managing applicants - again, learning the importance of value setting.

  • Pre-screen and interview effectively using simple techniques that help you shortlist and recognise "the right fit", including how to get value out of reference checks.

  • Identify the "best" candidate for the job.

  • Formalise an employment offer and secure your candidate.

  • Develop an onboarding and training management plan to set your new employee up for success!

Jam-packed, indeed! So why is this workshop FREE?

We get it - it seems suss. But there's no sales pitch. We just know cashflow and time are two of the biggest concerns for small business owners.

And in today’s competitive jobseeker driven market, we believe every business owner should have the opportunity to learn how to hire effectively (it speaks to our mission!).

We're offering this workshop free to the first 15 people so we can also better understand what your business needs are and improve the value of our service to the small business community.

What else is in it for me if I attend?

You'll walk away from the workshop with a clear hiring framework that will get you actioning your next hire with confidence. But we'd also like to thank you for attending by offering:

  • A free 30-minute post-workshop consultation where we'll help you get your hiring strategy rolling or spend time answering any other questions you may have. Think of us as your "on-call hiring consultant".

  • First dibs on our next workshop - we'll invite you before anyone else.

  • Coffee and morning tea provided.

  • Fun factor: we hate boring workshops - this one will be fun, promise.

Alright, sounds good - sign me up!

Absolutely! Just click the link and register. We look forward to meeting you!
