St. Charles, MO – Beginning September 30, the Missouri Small Business Development Center (SBDC) in partnership with the Economic Development Center of St. Charles County (EDC), will launch FireUP Your HR for Small Business, a weekly series of 30-minute webinars designed to help small businesses tackle the most pressing HR issues facing them today.

 

The series, made possible by funding from the CARES Act, will empower small businesses to develop real-time human resources tools to get better results and gain a distinct competitive edge.

 

According to Justin Schulz, Director of SBCD at the EDC, the 30-minute format means each presentation will be value packed and concise.  

 

“Time is a small business owner’s most valuable and scarce commodity,” Schulz said. “With the 30-minute format, we’re ensuring that every minute attendees invest in this webinar series will be impactful and worth the time spent.”

 

Each week, a different topic will be covered. The first training session in the series will be held September 30 from 11:30 am to 12:00 pm. It will be titled Workplace Combustion: COVID-19 Heats Things Up. The session will explore the effects of COVID-19 on the HR function of small businesses and provide real-life strategies companies are using to overcome them.

 

Additional sessions include:

·       October 7 | The Sparks that Fuel HR – Why HR is Important

·       October 14 | Maintaining the Inferno of HR Systems

·       October 21 | Blazing Through the Basics of Employment Law

·       November 4 | Taming the Wildfires of Hiring and Interviewing

·       November 11 | HR Heroes on Fire

 

“Your employees are your most valuable asset and drivers of business growth,” Schulz said. “This series is designed to help you understand how to increase productivity and optimize your relationships with them to ensure the company performs to its potential.”
