Help Wanted: Turning Your Workplace into a Talent Magnet
Recorded On: 06/15/2022
Maintaining a well prepared, contemporary workforce is fundamental to ensure your agency’s continuity of operations. In essence, it’s akin to a risk management strategy because what delivers services are qualified, mission-oriented people motivated to build a stronger community. At the same time, the public sector’s traditional ways of retaining and attracting top-flight talent are not always effective and are often viewed as antiquated. In this webinar, Patrick Ibarra of the Mejorando Group will outline specific steps you can immediately take to strengthen your employer brand (i.e. reputation), increase your retention of A+ performers and modernize your approach to recruitment.
