“Employee first” workplaces are not only an essential component of sustainable economic development, but a wise business decision. That's why VBSR created the Small Business Toolkit for low or no cost strategies that create workplaces that support employees, communities, and the environment.
In partnership with VCET, VBSR's Small Business toolkit will now be accessible as five separate free courses on the Vermont Startup Collective, a digital platform, connecting 700+ entrepreneurs, teams, freelancers, and mentors across Vermont.
In this info session, we'll take a deep dive into these courses with VBSR's Membership Manager, Toby Aronson, so you can learn what aspects of the toolkit would be most beneficial for your business.
