Financial Poise™ Webinars and West LegalEdcenter are pleased to announce the March 13th premiere of a new webinar “ADVISING THE START-UP 2018 - HR 101," that focuses on talent acquisition and management in a startup environment.

Appropriate for founders and their counsel alike, this webinar covers common legal pitfalls and how to avoid them.

Most startups are not destined to become billion dollar unicorns. Most, in fact, will fail and most of those that survive will never be more than small businesses. Whether and to what extent a startup will be successful depends on many factors. One set of factors is the foundational pillars on which the company is built, and includes things such as the company’s capital structure, financial controls, human capital, market niche, and marketing functions. The Financial Poise ADVISING THE START-UP 2018 series explores each of these topics, giving startups and their advisors useful tools and insight into how they can build a foundation for success.

The third episode of the ADVISING THE START-UP 2018 webinar series is HR 101, airing on March 13th at 11AM CST (REGISTER HERE), and features Moderator Jack O'Connor of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Helsinger LLP. Mr. O'Connor is joined by Jason B. Klimpl of Tannenbaum Helpern Syracuse & Hirschtritt LLP, Phil Maltin of Raines Feldman LLP, and Stephen Reisler of ROCG AMERICAS LLC to discuss HR basics in the context of a start-up environment.

How does a company identify and attract talented individuals? What about recruiting and hiring? Training? Retention? Dealing with problem employees? These issues, of course, are not unique to startups, but do experience them somewhat differently than more mature companies.

This webinar focuses on talent acquisition and management in a startup environment, including how to negotiate employment or consulting agreements, granting options, and related agreements with potential hires. Appropriate for founders and their counsel alike, this webinar covers common legal pitfalls and how to avoid them.

The final episode of the ADVISING THE START-UP 2018 Financial Poise webinar series is "SEO/Social Media & Other PR 101," airing on April 17, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. All episodes premiere live through West LegalEdCenter and then are made available on-demand.

As with every Financial Poise Webinar, each episode is delivered in Plain English understandable to investors, business owners, and executives without much background in these areas, yet is also valuable to attorneys, accountants, and other seasoned professionals. And, as with every Financial Poise Webinar, each episode brings you into engaging, sometimes humorous, conversations designed to entertain as it teaches. Each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes so that participants will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or all episodes.
