March ILCMA Professional Development Event & Metro Luncheon

The ILCMA Professional Development Committee Presents:

“Transforming Local Government to Attract and Retain a New-Age Workforce”

Local governments are confronted with a variety of issues when approaching new hires. “Who will apply? How will we conduct the interview? What is our strategy for on-boarding them into the organization?” Increasingly, these questions have become commonplace and are now often replaced with, “What can we do to attract talent that may otherwise seek positions in the private sector?”, “Will this new hire have expectations that differ from the organization norm?” and “How can we prepare our organization to offer an inviting work environment while maintaining our operations and services?”
Please join us in a discussion of practical ways to encourage organizational change. Find out how to be on the forefront of making great hires, keeping them engaged and committed to public service. This panel of experts in the field will discuss the changing trends of the local government work-force—Millenials who want to work odd hours, returning Veterans with education and skillsets that are not easily transferrable to a resume, nursing Mothers with federal protection requirements and Fathers on FMLA. These trends are likely here to stay, so find out from our panel of experts on the best way to approach these issues.

Slated panelists include: Thomas R. Campion, Ph.D., Campion, Barrow, and Associates; Meredith Hannah, Glen Ellyn Economic Development Coordinator; Mary Rath, Arlington Heights Human Resources Director; and Joellen Earl, CEO of GovHR USA.
