Human Resources: Best Practices for Hiring Employees

March 14, 2019 | Gulf Coast Community Foundation | 8:30 a.m. - 12 p.m. (registration required)


One of the biggest opportunities for an organization to set themselves up for success is to ensure that they hire the right person, for the right job.  Learn effective ways to evaluate both what candidates know, and how they will function and contribute in your organization’s culture.  Learn what is legally compliant in hiring, and what is not.  And finally, once you have hired great talent, how do you set them up for success?

Laurie Huebner, a Gulf Coast Community Foundation I3 consultant, will lead this workshop. The intended audience is hiring managers, Executive Managers, Board members accountable for hiring, and CEO/EDs.
