Candy Factory LIVE Ep. 1 HR & Covid-19 Guest Jessi Purdy

Many small business owners are planning their next steps and how best to re-open their business when the time is right and a plan is in place. This is an overwhelming process with many new periodicals and considerations. To help you navigate these next steps we will be hosting a series of conversations with local small business professionals. For our first convo, we will be chatting with Human Resource specialist, Jessi Purdy, of FIC Human Resource Partners to discuss what businesses should be considering when it comes to HR and COVID-19 planning / re-opening. These are important conversations to be having now to help avoid challenges and liability in the future.
