Small business workshops

Come along to a workshop for small businesses and learn how to recruit and retain great staff.

Thursday 24 August 2017

Employing someone is one of the biggest decisions that small business operators make, so it’s vital to choose the right person and keep them on your team.

How to recruit and retain great staff is the theme of the next small business workshop run by Mount Alexander Shire Council and Small Business Victoria.

“This workshop is ideal for business operators who are thinking about or are already employing staff, or those who want to learn about the many employer legal requirements,” said Eva Parkin, Economic Development Officer, Mount Alexander Shire Council.

“Participants will learn how to recruit great staff, induct them and manage them in line with best practice,” said Ms Parkin.

The interactive and practical workshop will also explain the many legal obligations in relation to wages, conditions and other key employment matters.

“We have a fantastic presenter – John Vine – who has been involved in the small business and franchising sectors for more than three decades, in addition to holding senior positions with The Shell Company of Australia and South Pacific Tyres,” said Ms Parkin.

Mr Vine’s areas of expertise include franchising, operating in regional areas, start-ups and attracting and retaining staff.

“We encourage all small business operators to come along and make the most of these low-cost sessions. Not only will you learn useful information, it’s also a great opportunity to network with other business people from around the shire,” said Ms Parkin.
