The learning outcome will be to recognize the importance of hiring and retaining the right person to maintain stability for the program, families, and children. This will occur when leaders communicate, respect, and acknowledge their employees.
In this edWebinar, learn about:
- Recruiting – Before you can hire and train the right person, you must first recruit the right person. Finding quality staff through application review, interviewing, and hiring the right person will be discussed. Interviewing and hiring techniques to attract the most qualified applicants will be outlined.
- Training – What can be expected without training? Ongoing training is important for all staff to ensure that they understand the requirements, policies, and procedures. A well-trained staff will provide a safe and nurturing environment for all children. The proper training will reduce mistakes that are made at the center.
- Retaining – Learn how to incorporate new ideas, institute different ways of thinking, and operating within the early childhood center to reduce staff turnover and improve employee retention. When you hire the right person for the job and provide the needed training, the chances of the person staying at the center are higher. Furthermore, reducing staff turnover will provide continuity and consistency for children and families. Participants will gain recruiting and training techniques that can be utilized to design their dream team.
