Southwestern Community College’s Small Business Center is offering a “Human Resources Summit” from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Dec. 9, to teach business leaders efficient and effective practices for managing human resources. The one-day conference will be held in the Burrell Building.

“We understand that the complexities of working with people aren’t managed on a spreadsheet, and often business owners don’t have the knowledge or tools to handle these situations in the best way,” said Tiffany Henry, director of the Small Business Center. “Mistakes in human resources can be costly, but unfortunately they are common.”

Eight sessions will be offered throughout the day, with topics including: interviewing done right, coaching employees to get great results, being a leader versus a manager, confident employee termination through solid documentation and purposeful employee onboarding.

The event is free. Pre-registration is required
