Executive leaders of organizations providing support for people with disabilities regularly indicate that their ability to recruit, maintain and properly develop the DSP workforce is a top priority for the continued success of their organization. Direct Support Professionals are the most integral component to providing quality supports in the IDD community. They are the face of your organization and are ultimately one of the biggest factors in your organization’s reputation in the community. Unfortunately, many DSP’s don’t see an opportunity for professional growth within their career which can lead to turnover, disengagement, and poor performance. However, we know that when employees see an opportunity for growth, both personal and professional, they become more engaged and effective contributors. As organizational leaders and managers, it is vital to build a vision for advancement that will excite your employees.
This presentation will focus on cost effective strategies for:
- Identifying the right people for the right role
- Developing the right career development plans
- Professional Certification Opportunities
- Employee engagement from initial point of hire throughout their career
A recording will be made available for registrants.
