Human Resources 101

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.
