Hiring and Onboarding

Have an opening on your team and are looking for the right candidate to fill it? Recruiting and hiring new employees is often a top priority for whoever is managing the Human Resources (HR) functions in your brewery, and it is often a challenging task. There are several steps, and it is usually a considerable time commitment. Fortunately, we have the tools you need to simplify the process and ensure you are in compliance with laws and regulations, which often vary based on your location.

In June 2022 we published the Introduction to Human Resources Toolkit, which included a sample hiring process. Now, we are building upon that resource in conjunction with Zywave, the Human Capital Management (HCM) platform that all Brewers Association (BA) members have access to, FREE OF CHARGE! Zywave offers users numerous HR tools and below is just one of the many practical applications for Zywave in your brewery.
