Do you have inconsistent staff resources for records management within your departments?  Do you have a rising need to hire a full-time RM employee?  Do you have no control over who is assigned to assist with records management?  Everyone knows that running a records management program is nearly impossible to do on one’s own, but many do not know how to go about developing a records management team.

In this webinar, City of Austin Corporate Records Analysts Debra Korty and Alexander Webb will teach you how to determine the size and scope of your records management team, how to use existing staff or create hired positions to gain needed experience, how to use accessible resources to create learning opportunities, and how to encourage staff to make use of opportunities to move up the records management career ladder.

Some of the topics of discussion will include:

  • Determining Your Representation Ratio – How many staff positions will you need?  They’ll show you how to use your organizational chart to determine the number of team members and identify key positions.
  • Developing a Career Path – Debra and Alex will guide you to create a path for advancement by using informal role titles and succession tools to encourage team members to acquire the skills they need to move into hired positions.
  • Succession Planning – You’ll learn how to recruit and retain superior employees for your RM team by providing time, attention, and education for them.  You’ll strengthen your RM program by investing in existing staff.
  • A Case Study of the RM Ladder at City of Austin – Debra and Alex will share examples and lessons learned from their own organization’s efforts to create a career track for records management staff.

This webinar is designed for both state agencies and local governments.
