Employers of all types benefit from smart strategies to develop a workforce that is both effective for – and reflective of – its community. A public employer, perhaps, should rely on these approaches the most to deliver essential front-line services. Panelists will discuss proven strategies to hire, train, maintain, and promote the right workplace environment needed to relate to residents, benefit from diverse worker experiences, and serve all members of our communities.
