If you've already grown beyond a one-trainer band, or have reached the point where you just can't do it all yourself anymore, you'll want to take advantage of this presentation. From finding and hiring the right people to training and reviews, Veronica Boutelle of dog*tec shares practical, hands-on tips for building a productive team culture for your business. She'll discuss how to know when it's time to hire, how to find the right people for the job, the hiring process itself, and whether you should bring on independent contractors or employees. Once you've got help, you want to get the most from your growing business. So Veronica looks at strategies for creating a positive staff culture (or fixing one that's gotten off on the wrong foot), including staff training do's and don'ts, reviews that actually work, and ways to reduce chaos-inducing turnover. Whether you're ready for some help, or would like to get more from the help you already have, don't miss this session.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the process of finding and hiring strong employees
  • Understand the difference between independent contractors and employees, and the legal and tax implications of each
  • Understand the importance of, and techniques behind, effective staff training and review processes for building a strong, positive staff culture
