Job retention is about so much more than just ensuring plans and permits are reviewed in a timely manner. Its all about team collaboration, buy-in, establishing trust, having fun, and most importantly it's about having the ability to discover and pursue your personal and professional career goals.
Can you enjoy your job or is that a fairy tale we tell ourselves? For a supervisor, how do you retain your awesome staff and keep them energized? For staff, how do you get your voice heard and feel engaged? It takes more than making sure planners are trained to work within the zoning code and can review plans; its about making people feel important, that they have a voice and are supported with an outlet for dealing with job stress. One of the keys to keeping your amazing staff is to be vested in their career development and aspirations, not the number of zoning cases they review in a year.
Join us in our group discussion with the division director and planners, some of whom have worked for the City for one year and others have been here for 10+ years! The diversity of experience and time with the City offers an honest and fun look at job retention and satisfaction, along with tips and tricks to keeping the enthusiasm high and stress levels low.
Learning objectives: collaboration and communication skills, have engaged staff meetings, how to focus on and provide professional development and growth opportunities for your team."
