Layton City Announces May 2023 Small Business Seminar

“How to Recruit and Retain Productive Employees” is the topic of Layton City’s upcoming Free Small Business Seminar, set for May 24, 2023 from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m. The City’s Community and Economic Development department continues its popular education series featuring a panel of successful business and public sector leaders including: Chris Rydman, President, CR Lighting and Electric; Carly Wanberg, Recruiting Manager, Spectrum Recruiting; Brett Garlick, HR Director, First Community Bank; Cami Johnson, Owner, El Matador Restaurant; and Darren Rogers with the Utah Department of Workforce Services. The panel will be facilitated by Morgan Cloward, Layton City Community and Economic Development.

Why are employee recruiting and retention strategies important? Because if you can retain valuable workers, this effort alone significantly cuts down on all resources invested, in hours and costs, training efforts, in backfilling roles and recruiting new employees. The upcoming class will help business owners and managers learn about the latest trends and strategies including: creating a successful company culture, establishing flexible/hybrid work schedules, and offering crucial employee benefits. Local successful employers are efficiently using these methods to retain and recruit employees in today’s highly competitive labor market.

Layton City’s Small Business seminars offer the opportunity for local business leaders to spend a lunchbreak learning how to make their organizations more successful. The class will be held at the Layton City Center Building Employee Training Room, 437 North Wasatch Drive, Layton, Utah 84041.

Past classes have provided helpful training on a wide array of small business-related topics by local business owners and experts. Past popular classes have included: social media marketing, business accounting, business networking, and more.

The event is sponsored by First Community Bank and Layton City. First Community Bank has generously agreed to provide attendees with a free lunch. For more information, contact Morgan Cloward 801-336-3770,
