The University of Missouri Extension Office is offering a series of training classes with the theme “HR for Small Business: Avoiding the Land Mines.” The classes will be hosted by the University of Missouri-Rolla.
The series begins March 22 and runs every Thursday from 9 a.m. until noon. Classes will be held in Room 109 of UMR’s Bureau of Mines Building, 1300 N. Bishop Ave, Rolla.
This series covers leadership and liability management, recruitment and selection, compensation and retention, managing employee benefits and payroll, and government compliance for all employers.
“These kinds of classes can be found in St. Louis at a cost of about $350,” says Barry White of UMR’s Center for Entrepreneurship and Outreach. “But we are bringing the classes to Rolla at a nominal fee ($199 for the series) in an interactive television process. The instructor, David Campanini of Clarity Consulting, will be speaking from a location at the lake, yet we will be connected and able to interface with him here in Rolla. There are four other locations doing the same thing, so we hope to have an interactive group from all over the region.”
In addition to saving on the cost of classes, attendees will avoid travel costs and additional time away from their jobs in the area.
“Any active business that has more than one employee should participate in this series,” says White. “Owners and human resources managers will learn how to avoid major costs and improve revenues.”
Individual classes in the series are priced separately at $45 each. Class descriptions and registration information are available at http://www.missouribusiness.net/cgi-bin/calendar .
