SCORE Seminar Explores Optimal Staffing for Startup Businesses

Former employment firm CEO Gary Kravetz to help entrepreneurs assess options

One of the primary factors in a startup business’ success is keeping overhead to a minimum while maintaining the staff and talent needed to build and maintain a superior product or service. On Nov. 4, the Santa Barbara chapter of Counselors to America’s Small Business-SCORE will present a free seminar addressing cost-effective ways of using outside contractors, consultants, partners and employees.

Gary Kravetz — former CEO of Santa Barbara Staffing, NCC Technical and Executive Recruiting — will discuss the various options for securing talent and the pros and cons of each. While running his company, he placed more than 1,000 temporary and full-time staff positions each year. His job often involved working closely with his clients, helping them develop strategic planning for their business and staffing needs.

There is no charge for the SCORE seminar, scheduled for 6 p.m. Nov. 4 at the Santa Barbara Technology Center, 402 E. Gutierrez St. Street parking is available, as is the building’s rear parking lot. Entry to the event is through the rear of the building. No RSVP is needed. Click here for more information or contact Alan Tratner at 805.879.1729.

Alan Tratner is director of the Small Business Entrepreneurship Center.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
