Get A Handle on Hiring: An Educational Event with Instawork for Restauranteurs

Seattle is one of the fastest growing cities in the US, with the cost of living continuing to rise. It's near impossible to hire and retain great talent when housing prices exceed what most can afford.

Whether you’re a brand new business, or need some inspiration to fill roles that have been vacant for far too long, join Yelp’s Seattle business community and Instawork for a conversation about how you can tackle this issue. We'll discuss creative ways to hire and keep the talent you've brought on.

Before and after the presentation, attendees will be able to speak with staff from Instawork as well as Yelp. Your Yelp Local Business Partner will be on hand to answer any questions pertaining to your Yelp listing and the free tools for business owners. Instawork will have staff on site to discuss their platform, as well as insights and the topics they present on. You are encouraged to come with any and all questions!
