DoingBusiness2.0: Finding Talent & Labor Laws

March 5, 2013

Finding talent that best fits a company’s needs and expectations is a vital step that drives and underpins a company’s success. DC provides a vast job market with a wide variety of skill-sets, expertise, and experience. Navigating DC’s talent hub to find the right fit can sometimes be a daunting task for employers. At the same time, employers need to be mindful of labor laws that regulate hiring and firing practices of employees, and the benefits that employees have a right to enjoy.

Join us on Wednesday, April 10th, to hear from a distinguished panel of recruitment and labor law experts to give their insights on these important topics for employers. Panelists will also discuss the qualities they are looking for when recruiting employees.

Come early to network with fellow entrepreneurs at 8:30 am, followed by the session at 9:00 am.

About Doing Business 2.0
Doing Business2.0 is an initiative of the Washington, DC Economic Partnership directly drawn from our Doing Business in DC publication. The publication is a step-by-step guide for entrepreneurs on how to start or expand a business in DC. Speakers include regional university faculty members, business professionals from DC business resource centers, venture capitalists, and entrepreneurs with successful business ventures. Doing Business 2.0 is an asset for both start-ups and existing businesses. Entrepreneurs and business owners will gain access to some of the city’s top thought-leaders and have the opportunity to network with panelists and other attendees. In WDCEP’s effort to attract, retain and grow businesses in the District, this initiative is an essential educational tool and resource for all those doing business in the nation’s capital
