About This Webinar

Being a direct support professional (DSP) can be hard work — mentally, physically, and emotionally. It’s important to recognize and support your DSPs throughout their tenure at your organization, especially if you want to retain them long-term. With such a high turnover rate (the national average is 45%), recognizing your staff’s hard work and ideas can improve retention and engagement more than you think.

Watch this on-demand webinar to hear John Nash, Executive Director of The Arc of North Carolina, discuss how recognizing DSPs is one small strategy that can have huge effects on your organization.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding how different staff members prefer to receive recognition
  • How recognition supports staff retention
  • Examples of recognition, both good and bad
