Managing human resources can be challenging for small businesses under the best of circumstances, let alone the events of the past year.

To help small businesses with current human resources issues and give tips on how to better use technology to help with human resources tasks, University of Nevada, Reno Extension will hold two online town halls, on March 3 for English speakers, and March 10 for Spanish speakers. In addition to experts from Extension and the Small Business Administration, executives from TPC Payroll HR Consultants will be special guests on the panel.  

TPC Payroll HR Consultants is a Las Vegas-headquartered consulting, human resources, payroll, taxation and business management solutions company. Kimberly Miles, president and founder, and Bill Cleland, chief operating officer, will talk about a variety of important human resources issues and functions, including the hiring process, branding the employee experience, and how to use technology to improve efficiency in all areas of human resources.

“Properly managing human resources is one of the most important, and most challenging, aspects of running a small business,” said Buddy Borden, economic development specialist with Extension’s Business Development Program. “Our recent economic downturn has only complicated and increased these challenges for small business owners. But, we have experts who can help guide them and introduce them to methods and technologies that can help them now, and into the future.”

In addition to the online town halls, Extension will also offer two free webinars early in March, an English-language session focusing on cash flow, income, expenses and taxes on March 5, and a Spanish-language session on live-streaming for business on March 12. 

Extension has been offering a series of online town halls and webinars for small businesses, “Coping With COVID-19,” since April 2020, to help entrepreneurs and businesses plan strategically, adapt and succeed.
