Description: Transit has been hit hard with declines in ridership, service delivery, and loyal employees.

But there is hope! 2024 is showing signs of higher employment rates, fewer demands for increased wages, and improved employee satisfaction. Now that we are beginning to recover nationally, how do we evaluate what we keep and what we transform to take advantage of this changing market locally? What are the unique challenges for transit and your community that need to be addressed?

The session will cover:

  • New Transit Work Environment and New Employee Expectations
  • Understanding Your Purpose and Retaining Corporate Culture
  • Keeping Employee Standards/Policies Current
  • What do we need to examine to stay current with our employee’s needs?
  • The role of training and employee growth
  • Performance and Loyalty: What truly motivates?
  • Looking Within: Management & Leadership Training
  • Recruitment and Confronting Preconceived Perceptions
  • Methods of Recruitment
  • Reducing Length of Hiring Process
