Hiring Strategies for a Challenging Market

| Workshop


High levels of turnover and challenging hiring conditions continue to rock independent schools as existing faculty and staff evaluate their options and potential hires demand more flexible workplaces and higher salaries. Schools which have undertaken strategic initiatives to expand their talent pool and sustain a mission-aligned workforce are now adapting those strategies to a new and prolonged labor landscape, and they must focus attention on the policies and practices that create an attractive and inclusive work environment for all employees. Join us for this interactive Zoom workshop and discover new strategies to cultivate your school’s reputation as an employer as you begin attracting and retaining faculty and staff who galvanize your school’s mission.

Recommended Audience: Heads of School, Business Officers, and Human Resources Professionals

Learning Objective: Participants will learn best practices for cultivating a mission-driven candidate pool and will begin to develop hiring strategies specific to their school based upon an environmental scan of workforce needs and trends.
