OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -

The Owensboro Chamber of Commerce is kicking off a new series today to help small businesses overcome some of their challenges.

It's called "Whatcha Need to Know Wednesdays," and features a different topic every month from now until December 11th.

Chamber officials have divided human resources issues into six sections.

Today's session focuses on the best practices in hiring and recruiting.

It begins at 11:30 a.m. and will be held at the Home Builders Association of Owensboro.

This training program is open to all Chamber members and costs $100 for all six sessions, or $20 per individual session.

That fee covers the cost of lunch and all materials.

Over the next six months, the program will cover topics such as employee handbooks, disability and workplace safety, and more.

These sessions are taught by certified human resources professionals.

Officials say the goal of the series is to give Chamber members the opportunity to participate in an affordable and accessible program.

According to the Chamber, the idea for the series was born after their Small Business Committee listed challenges that it faces.

They explain that human resources issues were the number one business aspect that they wanted help with.
