As the U.S. economy emerges from a recession and the shutdowns brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, employers are increasingly finding it difficult to find and retain employees. One organization in Northeast Arkansas is seeking to help small businesses in this endeavor.
Arkansas Small Business and Technology Development Center (ASBTDC) at Arkansas State University will host “Fishing for Talent: Recruiting and Retention” seminar in Cherokee Village, Thursday, July 8, at the Spring River Innovation Hub. The seminar runs from 1-3 p.m.
Business consultant Glenda Caton will teach the seminar and will discuss best practices for recruiting and retaining employees for small businesses.
The program is offered free of charge, but pre-registration is required. Seating is limited. To register, visit asbtdc.org/asbtdc-events/ or call 870-972-3517. The event is co-sponsored by NEA Intermodal Authority, FNBC, First Community Bank, First Security Bank, Simmons Bank, and The Solutions Group.
