"HR FOR YOUR BUSINESS" - September 26, 2017

You're invited to attend our one-day workshop designed for business people responsible for Human Resources. ACT FAST - SPACE IS LIMTED TO THE FIRST 20 PEOPLE REGISTERED!

About the Program:  If you are a business owner or manager of a small business without a dedicated Human Resource (HR) expert on your staff, this is the workshop for you and your organization.
