The Gold Star of Recruiting and Retaining

Several weeks ago, Route Fifty featured several hours of sessions about the state of the state and local government workforce.

One of the panels, hosted by Katherine Barrett, focused on the challenges that face  state and local governments in terms of recruiting and retaining sufficient qualified workers. The challenge, said Barrett, has reached "crisis," levels, given the number of vacancies governments are trying to fill and the alarming turnover rates they face.

The panelists included: Jennifer Fairweather, chief HR officer of Jefferson County, Colorado, and president of IPMA-HR; Casey Osterkamp, director of the division of personnel for the state of Missouri and Bob Lavigna, senior felow - public sector at UKG as of August 29. 

Take a look.
