Looking for staff members for your museum, library or non-profit? We thought so. Join us for this informative webinar series to help you better understand Oklahoma’s Workforce.

OMA knows that Oklahoma museums are having a hard time finding staff members.  We want to help and are partnering with OSU Spears School of Business, Oklahoma Department of Libraries and IMLS to present a two-part FREE webinar.

You’ve heard the terms: The Great Resignation, The Great Reshuffle, The Great Regret, The Great Reset…the list seems to expand almost weekly, but one thing is certain, the workforce landscape in our state and in our nation is changing. Across the U.S. we continue to see headlines about labor shortages and the challenges that employers face when attracting and retaining the employees they need to run their organization. What can you do to build the workforce you need? In this virtual workshop we’ll talk about the current state of our workforce in Oklahoma and discuss creative strategies that you can deploy to help with these issues at your workplace. Join us for a free, two-part webinar on August 10 and August 11 from 10:00am-11:30am each day to learn how to attract and retain Oklahoma’s workforce.

Attracting and Retaining Oklahoma’s Workforce webinars are made possible with funding from the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) and in partnership with the Oklahoma Department of Libraries, Oklahoma Museums Association, Institute of Museum and Library Services.
