Financial Poise™ Webinars and West LegalEdcenter are pleased to announce the March 23rd premiere of a new webinar “HR101,” designed to introduce attorneys and business owners to the functions of the Human Resources department. Moderator Michael Brandess of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Hammer joins panelists from Vedder Price, KCP Advisory and Charles Krugel's Labor & Employment Law & Human Resources Practices Group for practical tips for getting a responsive HR group started.

Although not all tasks are glory work, developing a functioning and responsive human resources function is the responsibility of any startup that hopes to make it out of the gate.

The initial stages of the life of a business present novel and exciting challenges. While emotion, energy and great aspirations are the mark of a startup, financing, infrastructure and a grounded marketing plan are the fuel which propel a business forward.

Whether dealing with starry-eyed first time entrepreneurs or established professionals starting their own businesses, many of the principal concerns remain the same: (i) raising capital; (ii) finance and accounting; (iii) human resources; and (iv) developing and executing a marketing plan. As the market’s taste for startups continues to grow, opportunities to participate, advise and facilitate their growth are plentiful.

Join some of the leading experts in this unique and growing field as they discuss- in plain English for the non-expert- the basics and the fundamentals of advising a startup.

As with all Financial Poise™ webinars, each episode in the series is designed to be viewed independently of the other episodes, and listeners will enhance their knowledge of this area whether they attend one, some, or all of the programs.

Episode #3 of the Advising the Start-Up 2016 series is "HR 101"(Register Here). Moderator Michael Brandess of Sugar Felsenthal Grais & Hammer will be joined by panelists Charles Krugel of Charles Krugel's Labor & Employment Law & Human Resources Practices Group, Aaron Gelb of Vedder Price and Paul Valentine of KCP Advisory.

Although not all tasks are glory work, developing a functioning and responsive human resources function is the responsibility of any startup that hopes to make it out of the gate. Human resources is charged with running the company’s internal functions, including—recruitment, safety, employee relations, compensation and benefits, compliance and training and development. Recruitment and training are particularly important as the startup gains financing and begins to invest in itself.
