Hiring for Organizational Success

2020-02-26 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
ATDC Community Room (Room 2525)
Address: 75 5th St NW, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA

According to the Society of Human Resource Management, the average cost to hire an employee is $4000, without the coast of an external recruiter. And, the cost of a bad hire costs, on average, 30% of an individual’s annual earnings. So, if you are paying someone $60K the real cost is $78K.

The goal of this workshop is to provide you with the necessary tools to decrease the risk of a bad hire into your organization in the most efficient manner.

The learning outcomes of this session are:

  • The benefits to a consistent hiring process
  • The ability to create a more consistent and efficient screening process
  • Using assessments and behavioral interviewing techniques to uncover a candidates’ ability to be successful in your organization
  • Assessing your top candidates to make a final decision

    About the Class

    Protecting Intellectual Property (IP) is certainly important, but where does fit in the many priorities of any Startup business? We will address this important question in a round table fashion where attendees are encouraged to share their IP journey.  At the roundtable we will have a successful startup CEO and attorneys/advisors who have shepherded many Startups in the past with IP. This class is for any Startup aiming for long term success and wishing to learn from and network with IP experts.

    What you will learn:

    • What aspects of IP are most important to address and how should a young business address them?
    • How does IP and employment intersect?
    • What are best practices for IP security that don’t include filing for a patent or copyright?
    • What are the dangers and pitfalls of ignoring IP questions (or spending too much time focused on them)?

    The following subjects will be addressed over the course of the four-part series:

    1.       What Startups Need to Know About IP

    2.       Finding Value for Your Startup TODAY Using IP

    3.       How Does the World View You Differently Before/After IP?
