Mark Hudson Talks Best Practices for Hiring at 1 Million Cups

Attorney Mark Hudson presented “Think Before You Hire” at 1 Million Cups (1MC) in Cedar Rapids on Wednesday, February 27.

Mark’s presentation was centered on the idea of competency-based hiring, evaluating potential employees based on technical, knowledge, behavior, and interpersonal abilities. Hiring employees, especially for early-stage companies, should be about culture fit and making sure, as an organization, you know what you need in an employee beyond just a set of skills or a level of experience.

A video of Mark’s presentation was streamed live by the 1 Million Cups Cedar Rapids Facebook page, and can be viewed here: https://www.facebook.com/1MCICR/videos/269951707233247/.

About 1 Million Cups in Cedar Rapids

Developed by the Kauffman Foundation, 1MC is based on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and network over a million cups of coffee. Early-stage businesses and established companies facing interesting challenges are welcome to present their companies to a panel of experts for advice, and engage the audience in a question-and-answer session to encourage collaborative and honest conversations. We also feature expert speakers, founder fireside interviews, and exploration of business failures and the shared learning that comes from those failures. The Cedar Rapids chapter was the sixth in the U.S. and takes place almost every Wednesday. Every event is free, and everyone is welcome and invited to attend.
