Overview of A Workforce in Recovery: Best Practices for Recruiting and Retaining Skilled Employees
The Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC) is working with the Advocates for Human Potential, Inc. (AHP) on a free virtual symposium on November 2, 2022, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The symposium, “A Workforce in Recovery: Best Practices for Recruiting and Retaining Skilled Employees”, is now open for registration.
This symposium is open to all Massachusetts employers looking for creative solutions to the workforce shortage. Presentations will offer strategies about where and how to find motivated, qualified staff who are in recovery and how to build a recovery-ready workplace.
WCVB Channel 5 reporter and Emmy award-winning journalist, Ted Wayman, is the keynote speaker. Wayman brings decades of experience in New England and will share his experience with recovery.
The symposium also features Massachusetts state legislators, employers and employees with lived experience with substance use disorders, all of whom will speak about the importance of including individuals in recovery in the labor market.
Employers in attendance will learn how to:
- Find and keep qualified, motivated staff who are in recovery.
- Get resources to meet recruitment and retention needs.
- Develop HR policies and practices that support people in recovery.
