Online Workshop for Employers: Helping Your Small Business Through Covid-19

The event is expired

This workshop is for new or recently started Māori businesses which employ staff. The Covid-19 situation has caused significant disruption to businesses throughout New Zealand and the world and is likely to change the way businesses will operate in the future. This workshop looks at how you can get your business, and staff, through this crisis and potentially use this time as an opportunity to improve your business.

It will focus on three key areas: stabilising your financial situation, managing your staff, and preparing for the ‘new normal’. Content will cover Government support available (including the wage subsidy scheme, tax measures, and the business finance guarantee scheme), the role of your professional advisers during this time, and other sources of support. All participants will be eligible for an hour of one-on-one mentoring.
