This chapter presents guidelines for hiring great staff for your worker center. A worker center’s first hire is usually the director, who then should be authorized to recruit other staff. Sometimes a new center is in the position of being able to hire a couple of new staff members initially. If this is the case, it is best to hire the director first and give him or her the authority to hire the others. The leadership team should seek staff with a set of relevant core values and skills, and then support the person in learning other skills. This chapter offers suggestions for staff recruitment, including the development of staff structure, key values and skills to seek in a candidate, how to help the person get off to a right start, and providing support and keeping your great staff.
