Chapter Presents Recruiting and Hiring Seminar February 16

Please join IPMA-HR Oregon on Friday, February 16, 2018 for a workshop on “Recruiting & Hiring: Strategies for Success in Overcoming the Challenges of Today’s Dwindling Applicant Pool.”

The challenges related to recruiting and hiring have never been greater for our profession.  There are fewer qualified applicants and that trend will continue for the foreseeable future.  To be more successful, you will need to act quickly, streamline your hiring process and engage in vigorous outreach and recruiting.  Hear about proven strategies that work to improve the size, quality and diversity of the applicant pool.

  • Participants will learn about the current state of public safety recruiting and hiring: economy continues to improve, record low unemployment rates, record high number of job vacancies in all sectors, increasing number of retirements and a labor force participation rate falling to its lowest point in 39 years.
  • Participants will learn of low/no cost methods to streamline their hiring process and how to improve their agency’s recruiting efforts. Discussion will occur on why doing so is more important than ever before.
  • Participants will learn methods and strategies to improve the size, quality and diversity of their hiring pool and what attracts this millennial generation of candidates to serve.

Presenter Jon Walters is Founder and President of Public Safety Testing, Inc, a firm that specializes in professional recruiting, testing and hiring since 2000.  PST assists more than 200 public safety agencies in the Pacific Northwest with hiring, promotional testing, and investigative services.
