Over the last few months, our team has consulted with different organizations of various sizes and spoken at several conferences of government leaders.
The City of San Jose, California has retained the Mejorando Group to develop a Workforce Planning Program. The City has experienced unprecedented budget reductions resulting in the loss of a number of seasoned workforce members. Fortunately, the budget situation has improved and organizational leaders want to clarify a path forward on ways to equip the City’s workforce with the capabilities necessary to succeed in the 21st century.
