Over 300 real world ideas you can implement today.


The best recruiting and retention ideas from public and private sector.


Grow your candidate pipeline as you take the course with Brenda’s help.

Recruiting and retaining great people can be the single biggest challenge any organization faces. Having the right people on your team impacts your ability to serve your community professionally, complete your organization's mission, build community relationships, and grow your agency's resiliency.

But criminal justice agencies are facing incredible headwinds today. From falling public support, to changing generational dynamics, and increasing competition for top talent, agencies are finding it difficult to find the right people to be part of their agencies, retain the best and brightest to help lead those agencies, and to keep those valuable employees healthy so they can continue to give their best to the communities they serve.

Unlike any workshop, breakout session or white paper resource, this online class isn’t full of research studies that restate what you already know. Nor does it retread all the “tried and true” tactics you see in virtually every other Recruiting and Retention program (some of which don’t always work).

Designed by a hiring manager who knows exactly the challenges you’re struggling with in today’s recruiting environment, this practical, hands-on course will help you build your recruiting and retention program while you’re taking the class. Some of these concrete, implementable ideas will be fast and easy solutions that can be done in a day. Others, may take a week or even a month. Other ideas, due to their longer-term solution orientation, may take a year or more.

There’s no fluff. No watered-down generalities, or pie-in-the-sky theoreticals. This course brings you specific, tactical ideas as well as tips for implementation that are being done in a range of professions and jurisdictions: ideas all in one place for you to select, tackle, and then return to for the next idea.

You’ll also have access to a private Facebook Group to get help when you’re stuck, celebrate your wins, and brainstorm new ideas for your organization.

Ready to solve your organization’s recruiting or retention challenges? Great – let’s roll up our sleeves and get to work!

But I Already Work Full-time… Would I Have Time?

We hear you. Only you know about the demands of your job or if you can “juggle” the demands of work, family, and school. That said, online courses are a great way to get the knowledge you need for career growth, without being tied down to a specific schedule, being out of the office for days at a time, or burdened by the expense of high priced tuition or travel costs. Split up into bite sized components, each course section can be completed over a lunch break in a week’s time – sometimes less. And don’t worry: if life gets in the way, you’ll have a whole year to complete the lessons on your own schedule.
