Thursday - March 10, 2022
9:30 am – 11:00 am

On March 10, the Massachusetts Municipal Human Resources association’s first program meeting of the year will be held as a free webinar covering municipal recruitment strategies.

Representatives from communities that participated in a first-of-its-kind municipal career fair on the North Shore in November will discuss how the event was put together and lessons learned that can help other communities that may be interested in pursuing a similar event. In an effort to promote open positions with area residents, six North Shore cities and towns partnered with the MassHire-North Shore Career Center to hold the municipal career fair.

Speakers will include:
• Danvers Assistant Town Manager and Communications Director Jen Breaker
• Salem Human Resources Director Lisa Cammarata
• Beverly Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Director Abu Toppin
• Peabody Human Resources Director Beth O’Donnell

Labor shortages are affecting employers across the country, including municipalities, and key positions sometimes remain vacant for months. The U.S. Department of Labor reported that a record 4.5 million Americans quit their jobs last November, and employers face the challenge of adapting to the shifting job market landscape.

Advance registration is required for this webinar, which will run from 9:30 to 11 a.m. An email with the registration link was sent to all MMHR members in early February.
