Join Startup Canada Halifax and Volta to Learn “The Grassroots of HR”

April 25th, 4-8 PM

Every startup wishes to grow and prosper. All experts agree that, to do this, you need to hire and keep the best possible people on your team. Very few entrepreneurs are experts in HR and it is imperative to learn early on both basic HR requirements and the skills needed to build a strong team. As well, startups face unique challenges when hiring (They are not established firm, money is tight, positions cannot be clearly defined, etc.). This makes the hiring process even more difficult. It is therefore essential to learn HR skills and requirements before moving forward with the hiring process. This workshop is designed to help you start the HR process the right way.

During this session you will learn the Grassroots of HR:

Before hiring your first employee, get prepared.  Learn what basic human resources management structures you need to have in place to facilitate growth, stay on the right side of the law, be seen as an employer of choice and improve your bottom line. This workshop covers such topics as:


Recruitment and Selection

Employee Policies

Occupational Health and Safety

Job Descriptions and Succession Planning

Legislative Compliance


This 3 hour workshop presented by HR Pros will provide you with a basic understanding of what you need to have in place to start building your team and your business.

Following the workshop will be a panel Q&A to answer any questions and to address specific issues and, of course, networking and refreshments.
