This is for the frontline personnel, who are in the trenches, doing the day-to-day operations of a comm center! This is a high-energy event that will send you back to your center with fresh ideas and a large dose of perspective. This networking and collaborative learning event will pay lasting dividends in your agency as you leverage the contacts made during this fun day! This day is intended for Telecommunicators specifically. NO supervisors, managers or directors are allowed to attend.
Staffing and retention in Emergency Communications Centers are reaching crisis levels. Retaining staff is at an all-time low! We are always discussing the challenges within our work culture but do NOTHING to change it. Cannibalism is alive and well in our centers! Let’s work together to make a difference. Many of the problems have been caused by years of poor culture in our centers! It’s time to do the hard work and create better work environments in our agencies. So…
How do we change it and where do we start?
D – Determine problem areas
I – Invite others to talk
S – Share ideas/solutions
H – Help each other become better
