While employment numbers generally have improved since the start of the pandemic, local governments still face hiring challenges. These are particularly acute in occupations where there is direct competition for talent with private sector employers, but also in fields like police and fire that are not currently attracting the same large numbers of applicants they once had. Since raising salaries is not always an option, what are the other approaches governments are taking to position themselves as employers of choice and to reach candidates that might not otherwise be aware of available career opportunities? This webinar will include data from MissionSquare Research Institute’s annual workforce survey, as well as results from surveys of public employees and new career entrants.
This webinar is complimentary for ICMA members thanks to the sponsorship of ICMA Strategic Partner MissionSquare who will have access to registration information.
