Great question! First, I recommend that you determine your specific needs and expectations, including the decision to hire someone on a temporary/contract basis or ongoing as a regular team member. As a next step, I recommend that you create a job description outlining the job duties and qualifications for the position. There are several samples available online that you can customize based on your needs. Finally, you can post the job online based on your targeted audience (ex: Indeed, LinkedIn, Upwork, etc.) and start reviewing applications. I recommend that you share the opportunity with your personal and professional networks. Seeking referrals from trusted connections can reduce your search time for the right candidate. You will also want to prepare specific interview questions to help you assess and identify the right fit for your business. If you would like to discuss these recommendations in more detail, please contact me to schedule a call. Kind Regards, Aundraya
Hello. If you are referring to virtual “lunch and learn” educational sessions for your own employees, they can be a great way to offer professional development opportunities for up-skilling while fostering engagement (especially with remote teams). In my experience, these sessions are most successful when the attendees feel engaged through activities and the ability to share their own experiences. Take some time to select your topic, speaker, and learning objectives, then market the event as an educational experience highlighting the benefits.
If you are a California employer, please keep in mind that there are very strict wage & hour guidelines regarding meal & rest breaks. You should be very clear that participation is voluntary and unpaid since it takes place during the employee’s meal break. If attendance will be mandatory, the employees should be paid for their time.
