FIND’EM, HIRE’EM, KEEP’EM: WHY CULTURE COUNTS

COMMAND PRESENCE

 

Across the nation, police agencies are dealing with declining numbers of applicants and alarming turnover rates. Finding, hiring, and retaining desirable personnel is becoming more and more difficult for agencies. Today’s employees are shopping for the best “deal” while also looking for agencies with the right culture and opportunities. This course will provide insight as to why today’s top talent is leaving agencies and provides suggestions as to how to keep them. Using guided discussion, case study and small group engagement our facilitators will guide participants through the process of a 21st century style Recruiting, Hiring and Retention program that is grounded in proven concepts from both the public and private sector.

Those attending will discuss:

  • Why Traditional Recruiting Techniques Are Not Effective
  • The Most Sought-After Personal Traits and Characteristics
  • Best Practices Recruiting Plans and Recruiting Analysis
  • Importance of Branding Your Agency
