Building Cohesion and Teamwork in Municipal Departments
Businesses recognize the many benefits of fostering collaboration and teamwork across departments- better products and services, reduction in redundancy, greater innovation, and improved employee morale, to name a few. Municipalities have been slower to adopt this practice but stand to benefit just as much as businesses- especially with the roll out of ARPA funding. This seminar will cover the key elements necessary to build a culture of collaboration across departments, as well as how to get your employees on-board.
