So you’ve started a business, and your business is working. People are asking for your services and paying you for them. That’s awesome! Now, the tasks required to keep the business going are mounting. Everyone keeps telling you that it’s time to start outsourcing. However, few people seem to have an idea of how to actually grow a team. You need a bookkeeper, but how do you even find one? What about a lawyer? Should a support team member be a contractor or an employee? What about interns – do they need to be paid? What about services like Fiverr and Upwork?

In this talk, we will answer these questions and more. Relevant to any freelancer beginning to see themselves as an agency, product or education business looking for additional support, or anywhere in between, our experience growing the team at Caldera Labs has been full of lessons we’d like to share. From understanding what makes a legal unpaid internship vs. an illegal one, to best practices in how to teach new team members how to do things the way you think should be done while allowing room for each person’s unique strengths to shine through, this WordPress HR talk will be packed with information and leave you armed with the legalese and management concepts to grow a successful team – extra points for being specifically for WordPress businesses, by a WordPress business professional, and with knowledge of what employment law looks like especially in New York City.
