Local Governments Need Engaged Employees

At MISA in Ottawa, I will have the great pleasure to moderate a very interesting panel. We have five senior City leaders on panel, two from IT and three from Communications. They will be sharing their perspectives on the challenges and opportunities of creating a connected and engaged workforce.

On June 10th at MISA in Ottawa, I will have the great pleasure to moderate a very interesting panel. We have five senior City leaders on panel, two from IT and three from Communications. They will be sharing their perspectives on the challenges and opportunities of creating a connected and engaged workforce.


You’ve probably already caught what is so unique about this panel – to have both the technical and the communications point of view from three different city governments in one place is very rare.

Local governments have wildly diverse workforces – from librarians to firefighters, to administrators and staff. They may help citizens get business licenses or building permits, or coordinate snow removal. There are few organizations that are both as compact and as diverse as a local government.

So how do you keep all those team members’ eyes on the prize? How do you help them feel as though they are all part of a larger whole? How do you keep them aware, informed and connected?

The opportunities and challenges here are one part technology and one part communications. Join us for an insiders look at how Waterloo, Vaughan and Northumberland are getting it done.

Attending MISA? Come to the Panel at 10:45 am on June 10th in Ottawa. Register here. If you’re in the Toronto area you can join us for an interesting breakfast on How to Build a More Vibrant City Workforce May 29th 2014. Register here – its free.

We’ll also be at the Canadian Association of Municipal Administrators conference – stop by to chat intranets, engagement, leadership – or whatever’s on your mind.

Do you have a question for the panel or for us? Ping us at info@jostle.me or @jostleme.
