National Child Welfare Workforce Institute (NCWWI) Webinar

On Wednesday, December 14, 2011, from 3-4:15 PM EDT, the National Child Welfare Workforce Institute (NCWWI) invites you and your colleagues to join us for our second session in What Works for the Workforce: Leadership Competencies in Action - A National Webinar Series on Leading Change to Strengthen the Child Welfare Workforce. This webinar is free, and open to all.


Buncombe County, North Carolina's Department of Social Services has implemented a creative, evidence-based process to recruit, screen, select and retain new frontline child welfare staff, in order to build workforce capacity, improve employee retention, and promote organizational resiliency. Presenters will 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 initiative's development, implementation and outcomes, as well as offer lessons learned, tips for agencies, and the leadership skills and competencies necessary to sustain it over time.
