Invest in Staff PBOT as an organization needs to reflect the community we serve by growing more diverse and providing a healthy work environment with strong retention rates to maintain that diverse workforce.
Practice Perpetual Process Improvements We can embrace and invest in new technologies, enhance and leverage data sets, and improve knowledge of and access to the resources available to the agency and staff.
Communicate Externally to Better Serve Portlanders Outreach and information must reach diverse communities and those who have been left out of previous communications or feel disconnected from city government.
Celebrate Success A celebration can be as simple as the mention of a name or as elaborate as a ribbon-cutting ceremony; but celebrating successes provides an opportunity to recognize the continuity of our projects and the many hands that touch them.
Communicate Effectively, Internally Enhancing the communication between front line staff and management, between work groups, and across projects brings together the wisdom, talent, resources, and ideas from many different dimensions.
Wisely Manage Finances Managing finances wisely requires having a clear set of priorities and a ready resource of projects that could be supported as new grant or funding opportunities arise.
