News from Lindsey Wilson College
COLUMBIA, KY - In the fifth seminar of the Lindsey Wilson College Center for Entrepreneurship's "Build Your Own Job" series, small business owners will learn how to find and hire the people they need for success.
The seminar, which is free and open to the public, will be at 11amCT on Thursday, June 9, 2011, at Mulligan's Restaurant at The Pines at Lindsey Wilson golf course, 275 Country Club RD. Columbia, KY.
The seminar will feature two experts on staffing issues: Monica Rodgers-Shuffett, division manager for quality personnel in Columbia, and J.T. O'Connell of the Kentucky Department for Employment Services.
In their presentations, Rodgers-Shuffett and O'Connell will clarify ways entrepreneurs can tailor their staffing decisions to fit their business needs.
"Payroll is a big expense in any business," said Linda Grider, a Lindsey Wilson business professor and leader of the entrepreneurship seminar series. "You have to be sure that you staff your business in ways that meet your productivity needs - and your budget."
For example, Grider said, small business operators can contract with staffing organizations like Quality Personnel to supply temporary labor and the personnel requirements to support them, such as payroll, benefits and workers' compensation. Or the business owner can hire full- or part-time staffers and manage benefit costs and other employment requirements themselves.
O'Connell will explain how federal and state programs can provide tax breaks when business owners hire workers from 12 target groups of individuals who have consistently faced significant barriers to employment.
The first four programs in the LWC Center for Entrepreneurship seminar series provided information about crafting a business plan, developing a marketing plan, getting funding and capital resources, and determining what kinds of compensation and benefits to offer employees.
Future seminars will be: Understanding Business Law on September 22; Establishing Business Communication, October 20; and Accounting Practices and Programs, November 17. Each of the final programs will be held at the LWC Robert D. Cranmer Dining & Conference Center, 430 Helen Flatt DR. Columbia, KY.
