NCWWI What Works for the Workforce Webinar Series

Held on December 14, 2011, this webinar showcases the creative, evidence-based efforts of Buncombe County, North Carolina's Department of Social Services to recruit, screen, select and retain new frontline child welfare staff, in order to build workforce capacity, improve employee retention, and promote organizational resiliency. The presenters highlight specific steps and strategies - such as the identification of core competencies; open and realistic recruitment; structured, competency-based screening, including job samples; extended new employee "on-boarding" process - and describe how these efforts are embedded in a broader systemic initiative to foster organizational resiliency, workplace pride, and staff cohesion. Participants will learn about the development, implementation and outcomes of this innovative hiring process, as well as offer lessons learned, tips for agencies, and the leadership skills and competencies necessary to sustain it over time.
