Training/Event Description:

Assessment tools used in QRIS typically focus on classroom quality, but compelling research confirms the importance of addressing the work environment of staff as well. This webinar introduces participants to the Early Childhood Work Environment Survey (ECWES), a tool for assessing ten dimensions of organizational climate in early childhood programs. Participants will learn how the ECWES is used to measure, monitor, and improve the quality of worklife in QRIS initiatives across the country.

This webinar is  part of the monthly “Let’s Talk” series through the BUILD Initiative.  Registration is presently open to coordinators of leadership institutes and academies who are currently working with BUILD.


  • Total clock hours: 1.5
