Recruiting and Maintaining Quality Employees

December 5, 2019 from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

ICMA Practices: 3, 4, 10, 13

Program Summary
The one constant in local government is the changing demands to fill job vacancies in your agency. However, whether during a recession or a boom period, selecting and maintaining quality employees may be the most important decision that cities and counties make throughout the year. Employees routinely make hundreds of decisions, independently, as part of their job. Selecting and maintaining capable people to represent your agency is paramount. This month’s webinar will focus on strategies and tools to ensure you are building your culture with the best employees possible. The presenters will include information on how to compete with the private sector and discuss the value of hiring ex-military personnel. Managers should invite their Human Resources’ personnel to listen in on this webinar, as well as others in their agency who make job hiring decisions/recommendations.

Presenters

    • Heather Deyrieux, Manager – Workforce Planning, Sarasota County Human Resources
    • Karen Roberts, Director of Human Resources, ADRC
    • Kandis Baker-Buford, Equity and Human Resources Director, Polk County
