Recruitment & Retention



2 California Drinking Water Contact Hours awarded

Contact hours have been approved for the Registered Environmental Health Specialist Program. 

Certificates will be available through your profile.


Date & Time:

The Recruitment & Retention training will be held on the following date and time:

March 23 10:00AM-12:00PM 

This training is being held in Pacific Time.


Your water operator, office staff or manager has just given their notice and they are moving on to another job. They have been there for years and know the system history, where all the (hidden) valves/meters are and developed relationships with all entities required to manage or operate a public water system. The powers that be (local government and/or management) may be wondering, “What could we have done to prevent this employee from seeking other employment?” and “How do we go about hiring someone to replace this valuable resource?” This workshop will utilize the trainers' and participants' experiences to explore these conundrums.


Participants will learn:

·         About advertising, interviewing and hiring water system managers, office staff and operators

·        The resources available to assist with hiring good people

·        Steps to budget to acquire and retain competent staff

·        How to use staff evaluations to help with retention longevity

·        How to retain excellent staff (hint, it's not always about the money!)

Board Basics Series: The recommended audience includes management & local government board of directors.


This training will be hosted online on GoToTraining.
