Staff retention is a long-standing challenge for many family planning agencies, a reality made worse by the pandemic.
This interactive workshop introduced participants to strengths-based management, an approach shown to increase staff engagement, retention, and productivity. Participants learned the evidence for strengths-based management, concrete ways to apply this approach to day-to-day operations, and how to build a supportive organizational climate that increases staff retention while reducing burnout.
This workshop was intended for Title X staff in management positions, including program managers, administrators, clinic directors, and HR staff. The workshop was facilitated by Dr. Julie Rennecker, PhD, BSN, who brings extensive experience in staff development in health care settings.
