Region 10 and the West Central Small Business Development Center (SBDC) will host an employee lifecycle workshop “Employees 101: From Beginning to End” in Gunnison on April 20 and in Montrose on April 21. Businesses new to hiring will gain skills in managing employees for each of the stages of the employee’s tenure with the organization, while seasoned businesses will learn tips and tricks to fine-tune their management skills. Both new and seasoned managers will learn frameworks for improving the hiring processes, performance evaluation, disciplining, and terminating, as well as the required paperwork for Colorado employees.

The cost of the workshop is $45, which includes the live presentation in Gunnison or Montrose and three (3) online follow up sessions where participants will be able to ask questions and seek advice for their specific situation(s).
