WSAC Webinar Series logoIntroduction to Staffing Analysis

Friday, October 12

10 - 11 a.m.


This is a free webinar; Register Here. 


Do you know how to tell if your staffing plan is soundly designed?  Could you use some practical steps on how to calculate staffing needs and improve the efficiency of your staffing operations?  Do you know the difference between "good" overtime and "bad" overtime?  This webinar provides a practical introduction for local government service providers who make staffing-related budget decisions and manage staffing resources for core government services.  We will discuss a variety of ways to address staffing issues, including functions or positions that must be staffed continuously for one or multiple shifts. Some examples common to local government include:

?         Police or Sheriff patrol operations

?         Prisons and jails (housing unit supervision, booking, control, etc.)

?         911 call receivers and dispatchers

?         Bus drivers

?         Service desks (permitting, customer service, etc.)

?         Public utilities

This webinar is open to all local governments. Participants who may benefit from this webinar include: budget and fiscal managers and analysts; department heads and analysts responsible for staffing plans; evaluators and auditors; legislative staff that provides oversight of department budgets; and officials interested in learning more about how staffing for core government services is managed.
