Strategies for Hiring, Developing and
A good tribal member employment program serves to promote tribal and individual self-sufficiency, create a pipeline for developing tribal leadership, bolster the tribe’s economy, and preserve and promote tribal values and traditions. In this important class, you’ll discover what it takes to create, implement, and manage a successful program, whether you’re preparing to build a new program for the first time or are looking for ways to strengthen and improve an existing one.
Come ready to apply what you learn right away — in this hands-on class, you’ll have the opportunity to assess your tribe’s current policies and procedures for hiring tribal members, outline a plan for identifying and dismantling specific barriers to employment and career success, come up with your own customized onboarding plan, and develop tools for obtaining cooperation and buy-in for the program from both human resources and management. We’ll also help you understand the distinct roles and responsibilities of tribal leadership, HR, and management in visioning, developing, implementing and supporting the program — as well as what the keys are to building an effective working relationship between the Council and management.
Many tribes make the mistake of just helping tribal members get a foot in the door without following up with any kind of targeted support or development. Other tribes fail to put accountability measures in place, leading to a sense of entitlement for tribal members and resentment among non-member employees. This class will teach you simple but effective steps for ensuring continued success beyond the new hire stage, as well as guidelines for creating an environment where both member and non-member employees feel valued, challenged and motivated. Plus you’ll discover interviewing techniques that will help you obtain commitment, set standards of accountability, and establish goals and ground rules with potential hires before an offer is even made. We’ll also review the components of a successful progressive discipline policy, and provide you with strategies for handling terminations in a way that reduces liability and the potential for politics.
