Human Resources: What Could You Do Better?

One of the most important — yet often overlooked — aspects of a small business is its human resources practices. With this in mind, the 2013 Car Rental Show will present a pre-conference seminar titled, “Recruiting, Hiring, Motivating and Firing: A Human Resources Primer for Small Business.”

This seminar tackles the legal and human resources issues that any small business faces when managing employees. Topics include how to keep your job application legal, tips for e-recruiting, what you can and can’t ask in the job interview, lawful and ethical employee termination, an analysis of independent contractor versus employee status, and ways to foster a culture of innovation and motivation.

“The purpose of this seminar is not only to help owners and managers hear what is going on in the auto rental industry, but to help them run better companies,” said Angela Margolit, president of Bluebird Auto Rental Systems, who will moderate the panel. “Your employees are one of their most valuable resources and deserve your attention. Our panelists will talk about what happens when you do — and don't — tune in.”

Presenters include Chris Mason of the law firm Polsinelli Shugart, Michael DeLorenzo of Rent-A-Wreck of America, Inc. and Julie Ray of Ace Rent A Car.

“Angela has assembled an impressive team to impart advice on human resources issues,” said Chris Brown, executive editor of Auto Rental News. “You’ll not only be getting legal counsel without the hourly fee, but on-the-ground wisdom from two car rental executives with years of experience in the area.”

This workshop will held from 10 a.m. to noon on Monday, April 15. The 2013 Car Rental Show takes place April 15-16, 2013 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas. To see the full schedule and to register for the event, go to www.carrentalshow.com.
