SOCIAL MEDIA STRATEGIES FOR RECRUITING

Social media platforms can be used to advertise jobs, attract talent, and communicate with potential candidates. These platforms include Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and even Instagram. When compared to more traditional methods, this form of recruiting can reach broader audiences at a smaller cost. Promoting open positions on social media can extend the search to passive candidates while creating a buzz about what it would be like to work for the organization. This seminar, led by Alex Cassidy and Janessa Wolf of Lutz Talent, will discuss effective strategies for successful recruiting through social media.

EXIT PLANNING STRATEGIES

Business owners are good at dealing with everyday decisions, but they often forget that a main reason they are in business is to be rewarded for building a valuable business. The issue many are facing these days is that research indicates less than 10% of business owners have a formal exit strategy in place. Led by Bill Kenedy of Lutz M&A, this presentation will cover the questions business owners should be asking themselves and steps to help make the decision process easier.

RETIREMENT INCOME AND DISTRIBUTION PLANNING

Most investment and financial advice has traditionally been focused on the accumulation phase (growing assets before retirement). But with the elimination of traditional pension plans and increased life expectancies, retirees are now finding that the distribution phase (spending down assets in retirement) is far more complex and requires a skill-set that neither they nor their financial advisor may possess. This seminar, led by Joe Hefflinger and Nick Hall of Lutz Financial, will highlight the key components of a successful retirement income and distribution plan as well as specific strategies to consider.
