A 2 Part Hiring Seminar

The Erie Regional Chamber is planning two sessions on hiring, the first on April 4th and second on April 24th. 

Bryan Whittington of Peak Performance Management will help you address how to find the right people for your organization, and how to onboard and develop your new team members.

Both sessions will be hosted at WQLN Public Media, 8425 Peach Street.

These days it seems businesses are up against countless challenges when it comes to hiring people. Whether you have difficulty finding applicants with the right skills, not knowing where to post open positions for the best exposure, or being unsure if your interview process is asking the right questions, there are seemingly endless pitfalls that could result in hiring the wrong person. 

The first in our two-part hiring seminar with presenter Bryan Whittington will help you address these areas and more. In this session, Bryan will review the best methods for developing a hiring process that works including how to identify the ideal candidate, investing in your people bank, and how to market to and attract the best people for the position. Bryan will also cover interviewing best practices to ensure you’re asking the right questions to get the right person in the right seat in your business. 

So you’ve found the right person for the job, but now what? How do you make sure they understand your company culture and how they fit into the big picture? What’s the best way to onboard a new staff member? How do you make sure the new hire feels that they have a future with your company? In part two of our hiring series, presenter Bryan Whittington will help you craft a plan for success when bringing a new hire into your company.

The second session will cover the questions to ask when onboarding a new employee, helping your new hire develop and visualize a career path within the organization, as well as leveraging insights available within your organization to help develop the employee long term.

Light breakfast fare will be served. Registration is required and seating is limited.
