Join us for this dynamic discussion on the concept of strategic workforce planning—a strategy to ensure the right mix of talent, now and in the future, to meet your organizational goals—and learn how it can help your local agency recruit and retain the most talented staff.

The Minnesota Local Road Research Board (LRRB), the University of Minnesota, and Minnesota LTAP recently completed two workforce-related projects: Workforce Planning and Human Resources Development Strategies and Expanding the Transportation Workforce. This webinar will provide key takeaways from these projects, integrated with the current workplace impacts from COVID-19, ensuring that you leave the conversation with strategies and tools for recruiting and retaining your workforce.

The one-hour session will feature:

  • University of Minnesota professor Dr. Kenneth Bartlett’s workforce planning recommendations and action steps local agencies can implement.
  • Tools from Minnesota LTAP staff that directly address these recommendations.
  • Facilitated discussion to exchange and generate ideas on workforce strategies.
  • The chance to provide Minnesota LTAP with feedback on ways we can help make local agency strategic workforce planning achievable and sustainable.
