Human Resources/ Staffing for the Harbor City Behavioral Health Center

Behavioral health care organizations rely on human resources professionals to provide them with quality individuals that produce results within the organization and in alignment with organizational goals. Designing the strategy for developing an organization’s staff involves much more than a subject matter expert putting together a training course. There are several crucial steps involved. The first among those is developing and conducting a needs assessment of the organization.
