Human Resources Webinar Series
June 4 through June 25, 2013
The work of Human Resources staff is essential to assure effective workforce strategies. The HR webinar series is targeted to staff working at health centers and primary care associations (PCAs). Our goal is that health center and PCA staff hear about potential actions they can take to strengthen the workforce at their own organization, which ultimately strengthens the services provided to medically underserved people served by community health centers.
In each webinar of the series, “experts” on a particular topic and with health centers share their experiences, lessons learned, and recommendations. Some may recommend useful tools or additional resources. All will address your questions as much as possible.
For each topic in the series, participants of the webinar will be able to:
- Explain how the topic adds value to their organization.
- Describe several actions they could take to address the topic.
- Identify new competencies needed by their staff.

Webinar One: Using Social Media for Recruitment and Retention
Many organizations and corporations are increasingly using social media to recruit workers and sell their “brand” and mission to a wider audience. Whether it is Linked In, Facebook or Twitter, social media can be a useful tool in workforce recruitment, allowing a wider reach into a generation of educated and savvy users who are looking for the right professional opportunity.
This webinar will provide insights to health centers and SRPCAs into the many ways social media can be used for internal and external communications with an eye toward workforce recruitment. Hear about best practices and resources for developing an effective social media policy and see how social media can be used to “sell the mission” for executive recruitment.
Presenters: Amy Simmons Farber, NACHC Director of Communications and Marisol Murphy-Ballantyne, NACHC Assistant Director of Communications
Webinar Two: HR’s Role in Addressing Staffing Challenges Related to Achieving Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition
Health centers are increasingly achieving specific care standards of state or national organizations and recognition as Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMH). PCMH recognition is essential as health centers partner with private and public payers who will require some aspects of the medical home model.
This webinar will feature two knowledgeable health center Human Resources (HR) leaders who will highlight their experiences in achieving PCMH recognition, including identifying new competencies needed by staff, changing job descriptions, and training and supervising staff.
Presenters: Mardi Esquivel, Corporate Vice President & Director of Human Resources, Harbor Health Services, Mattapan, Massachusetts and Claretta Foye, Human Resources Director, Lincoln Community Health Center, Durham, North Carolina

This is the second webinar presented by the National LGBT Health Education Center to increase knowledge and skills of Human Resources staff at health centers to develop and implement policies and protocols that are culturally responsive and promote equity for employees who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT).
