Maine towns, cities and counties are facing difficult challenges in attracting and hiring qualified, talented employees to fill key vacancies in the workforce. Baby boomers are retiring at a record pace, and taking their experience, skills and institutional knowledge with them. How do HR and local government leaders respond and replace this rapid loss of experience and institutional knowledge, and fill key job vacancies within their organizations? How do towns, cities and counties achieve an inclusive, diverse (ethnic, gender, age) workforce that reflects their population? Also, Boards and Committees? How can you tell if a job candidate is truly qualified for the position, and a good fit? How may HR and local government leaders avoid hiring and employment discrimination claims, and ensure lawful compliance throughout the recruitment and hiring process?
This full day workshop features four experienced, knowledgeable and creative presenters who work with public and private sector employers on a daily basis in the areas of workforce development, talent acquisition, inclusive and diverse workplaces, effective screening and interviewing techniques and lawful compliance. Participants will come away from this workshop with creative, strategic tips and best practices in developing an inclusive, diverse workforce, and attracting and hiring qualified, talented employees to fill their key positions.
