Exploring the Role of Employers and Systems in Workforce Retention - Training & TA Series

3/13/2023 - 4/7/2023

The purpose of this training and technical assistance (TA) series is to provide peer recovery support specialist employers in a variety of settings with the opportunity to learn more about how their policies and procedures, organizational structures, partners, and systems in which they’re embedded play a role in retaining their PRSS staff. Historically, workforce retention has been focused on building workplaces that support wellness, centered on burnout and compassion fatigue. However, there has been a large gap regarding the role that employers and systems play in contributing to staff turnover and PRSS leaving the profession. Through small and large group trainings, as well as organization-specific TA, employers will be able to build tools and skills to reshape their relationships with systems and adjust organizational policy in order to better retain their PRSS staff.

This interactive training series is designed for employer and staff groups from organizations or programs that may include peer run respites, recovery community organizations, warm / hotline providers, community-based programs, and grant-funded programs. If your organization is committed to implementing concrete changes over the next six months, please apply

Please be aware that this training and TA series is not intended for individual PRSS. Rather, it is designed for programs or organizations that are committed to implementing concrete changes over the next six months designed to improve the retention of their PRSS staff. This training and TA series is designed for the facilitators to work with groups of staff from each organization, such as leadership staff, a program manager and administrator, etc.
