Topic: Nature is for Everyone: How Stokes Nature Center Can Help You Build and Diversify Your Business
Recruiting and hiring employees is one of the most expensive parts of running a business, so finding the right candidate and retaining them is incredibly important, especially in a highly competitive labor market. This presentation will explore creative ways to use local organizations, such as Stokes Nature Center and other similar community based resources, as a marketing and retention tool with minimal cost and effort.
