Start Up Tuesday – The Startup Roadmap: Staffing Your Business

Enterprise Center


Tue, Feb 27, 2024 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

  • This event has passed.

The SCORE Startup Roadmap includes 12 modules*. This workshop will present the module entitled “Staffing Your Business” where you will think through the costs and benefits of hiring workers and whether you should hire employees, independent contractors or both. If you aren’t a “people person” hiring a salesperson can help you attract more clients. And if you’re opening a store, restaurant, service business or other types of businesses that will interact directly with customers, you’ll need employees to handle some of the work.

*The SCORE Startup Roadmap includes the following 12 modules, but you do not have to stop at every exit:

· Starting Your Journey

· Are you Ready to Start a Business

· Defining and Validating Your Idea

· Business Plan or Business Model Canvas

· Fining Funding

· Setting Up Your Business

· Accounting, Insurance, and Legal Considerations

· Marketing Your Business

· Pricing, Sales, and Distributions

· Setting Up Your Physical Location

· Staffing Your Business

· Open for Business

This informative workshop is offered at no cost and is being sponsored in partnership with the North Shore Alliance for Economic Development and the Massachusetts Office of Business Development (MOBD).
