We were so excited for this event that we changed the date to October 19, 2021, to accommodate an indoor/outdoor venue for our guests and host, the Asian Business Association.

Please note the new location of this event is at 700 El Mercado Ave, Monterey Park, CA 91754.

The new date and time for the event is Tuesday, October 19, at 6:00 PM!

Big news! ACEL SoCal is partnering with the Asian Business Association for a great cause! Presenting… Asian Business Association’s and ACEL SoCal Chapter’s Hiring for Small Businesses Speaker Event.

Are you a small business owner who is struggling to recover from the lockdown and the effects of COVID 19 during this past year? If so, this event is for you!

Most importantly, this event will feature ACEL SoCal’s Vice President, Betty Zhao, as a speaker!

As small businesses recover from the pandemic, they face a new obstacle: finding workers. A March survey by the National Federation of Independent Business found that 42% of owners had job openings that could not be filled, a record high. Ninety-one percent of those hiring or trying to hire reported few or no qualified applicants for the positions they were trying to fill. Recruiting and retaining talent is a critical challenge for all businesses, especially small ones, even prior to the pandemic. Learn important tips and techniques to improve ways on hiring and keeping employees.

*This event is Series 1 of 5 of the Business Advancement Program, but is also open to the public.

What to Expect:

Recruiting New Employees
Retaining Talent
Current Hiring Practices
Challenges and Possible Solutions
Make New Business Connections
