One area we would like to focus on is how millennials need to train themselves in: Stress Management. Raise your hand if you thought college was stressful… and then you got to the real world and found out you ain’t seen nothin’ yet! Between filing taxes, paying rent, and truly really cooking for yourself without the help of dining halls or student unions, the real world can hit new graduates and young people like a ton of bricks.
Sometimes posting on jobs boards isn’t enough to help you find new employees. And then, paying to get your posting “upgraded” or sponsored on those boards can be cost prohibitive (and bring limited results in my experience). Never fear- through my work with Fit Small Business, we spoke to tons of resources who are small business owners like you and came up with 29 ways to find employees and compiled them here in this article.

It’s in the news a lot lately, and you may want to get a jump on getting a policy in place before an awkward situation arises. We agree with you on doing that! Check out Christy’s full advice on federal and state laws (yes, some states have laws!), how to write a maternity policy with a template, and the answers to other questions all about maternity leave.
