Effective HR Policies and Procedures for the 'New Normal'
Recorded On: 10/27/2020
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has forced virtually every local government in the country to drastically alter their normal HR policies, procedures, and processes, and the recent upsurge of cases suggests that these changes may need to remain in place for the indefinite future. On the bright side, the past few months have given us a much better idea of which of these changes have been the most useful, and how they can be most effectively implemented.
In this webinar, you'll join human resources experts Carol Granfield, ICMA-CM and Sandy Stapczynski as they discuss the innovative ways local governments have modified their organizational policies and practices in the wake of the pandemic, and share examples that you can apply to your own workplace. They will cover:
- Modifications to employee hiring and departure procedures
- Model telework policies
- How to evaluate your staff's performance remotely
Practices Areas:  Staff Effectiveness;  Policy Facilitation and Implementation;  Human Resources Management and Workforce Engagement
In recognition of the hard work and selfless service of the local government community during these uniquely challenging times, we are offering a discount on webinar registration rates. Enter the code PSAD2020 during checkout to get $50 off the price of this webinar.
