Organizations need specific skills and attributes from their leaders, and for that matter, from members at all levels of the workforce. As a result of the rapidly shifting workforce, government organizations — small and large, rural and urban — are experiencing a brain drain that is placing their organizations at a critical juncture: The need for experienced and seasoned employees has never been greater, while those are the very workers who are most likely to be departing in the very near future.
"Organizations that celebrate people’s lives and create fulfilling, memorable employee experiences, will engage people's hearts and imaginations, and be rewarded with immense success."

What should leaders of local government who want to build their 21st-century workforce do? Old models must be discarded in favor of proven approaches to create the Workforce of Tomorrow including realizing it’s not the sole responsibility of the Human Resources Department, but instead the entire organization.
This workshop will include progressive and practical strategies and tools to attract, retain, and optimize talent. Attendees will walk away with a plan for next steps to move their organization forward!
