Running A Business During Covid - Get The Facts with the HR Partners Team

This episode is for our wedding professional community. It has been an interesting year to say the least and we are chatting with Kristina Dietrick & Allison Zerbe with HR Partners to gain insight on how to protect our businesses, retain great employees and prepare our businesses for the 2021 season. This is one of my favorite episodes with so much content and helpful advice! I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did!
