Managing Human Resources in Head Start (August 2017)

Human resources management in a Head Start program can be extremely confusing. The regulations require that certain actions take place pre-employment; others during the hiring process, and additional requirements during employment.  The termination process also requires organizations to follow strict procedures.  Ensuring that these elements are implemented correctly is essential not only for proper program operations but also for morale. In this webinar, the Human Resources Lifecycle of the Head Start employment relationship will be reviewed.

Target Audience

Executive Directors, Head Start Directors, Human Resources Director and Personnel, but all are welcome.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Define pre-employment requirements, such as recruitment and selection procedures and health exams;
  • Understand the hiring process, including steps and tips;
  • Recognize best practices during employment, such as performance reviews and training/development; and
  • Determine how to properly terminate a Head Start employee, including learning the steps on “how to.”
