Main Street Online Auction - NOW LIVE

Leadville In Bloom

LIB logo.JPG

Ready, Set, Bid! Have you placed your bid yet? You may already know, this year’s Leadville MainStreet fall event has a different spin! Our Leadville in Bloom online auction is LIVE NOW! Your bid will deepen our roots and grow the planter box program for Summer of 2022. Browse planter box options and choose your favorite location… Just remember it is an auction! You may have to outbid someone to get it! Ultimately, though, the goal is to fill all of Harrison with colorful blooms for the summer! Of course, it wouldn't be a MainStreet auction without upcycled auction items and street signs! Old planter boxes that once housed the flowers on Harrison have repurposed and transformed by local creatives are up for bid! Check back often, as these items will be added as they come in. You will also find a selection of vintage Leadville street signs in the auction. Don’t miss your chance to own a piece of downtown history -- once those are gone, they are gone. Bidding is only open through November 15! Check out the flyer HERE!

Leadville in Bloom is officially live October 15 - November 15, 2021

Strategic HR planning links HR management directly to the strategic plan of your business. Even a small organization with a staff of 4 staff can develop a strategic plan to guide decisions about the future. Based on the strategic plan, your organization can develop a strategic HR plan that will allow you to make HR management decisions now to support the future direction of the organization. Strategic HR planning is also important from a budgetary point of view so that you can factor the costs of recruitment, training, etc. into your organization’s operating budget. Strategic HR management is defined as: Integrating human resource management strategies and systems to achieve the overall mission, strategies, and success of the firm while meeting the needs of employees and other stakeholders.
