Class: HR 101 for Startups

20 available spots | FREE for Start Garden members | $25 for non-members


Topic| HR 101 for Startups

So which one is right – A) Fast Company with their “We Hate HR” cover a few years back;  B) The Wall Street Journal with their recent “Companies Say No to Having an HR Department” article; or C) or your investor who says you need to have a handbook, forms, policies, procedures, etc.?  As with many situations, the answer is probably D) All of the above.
We’ll give you a real-world tour of HR from handbook must haves; how to help ground & strengthen your culture as you grow; how the Affordable Care Act has impacted benefit decisions; to hiring tips & leadership pointers. 90 minutes of HR-related good stuff and a few things you learned in kindergarten.
