Recruiting and retaining the best employees: What’s culture got to do with it?

April 30 – 12:00PM

Organizations of every kind across the country – business, nonprofit, government – are facing the same challenge: in a tight labor market, how do I retain and recruit the best employees? Put another way, how do I become a place where my best employees want to stay, and they recruit great people to join them?

There are many factors, but organizational culture is definitely key. But what is organizational culture? How do I assess it, from my perspective as an owner or leader? How do I assess it from the employee’s perspective? And the $64 million question: if I’m not happy with what I see, how do I shift it toward something that’s more productive, more attractive, and healthier for everyone? There are no magic bullets, but we’ll review the key factors involved in building a great organizational culture in this Tingalls Munch-n-Learn!

Generational Perspectives on Privacy in the Workplace

May 15 – 6:15PM

In this social media era, so much of our lives are online for the world to see. So what does that mean for our privacy — especially in the workplace? Amy Carrick (Mindful HR, LLC) and I will discuss how the concept of privacy has changed over the past 10 years, and how different generations tend to view this issue from very different perspectives. We’ll also share insights into how employers are using the digital information now available about all of us online, and answer questions like, what information can an employer legally use to make hiring decisions? What rights does an employee have? How can I recover from an embarrassing online incident? And much more! Come ready to learn and clean up your online profiles – because following “privacy guidelines” in the digital era can be the difference between success and failure for employers, employees and job seekers.

Succession Planning in an Era of Generational Turnover

June 4 – 7:45AM

One of the biggest challenges faced by both businesses and nonprofits today is succession planning in an era of generational turnover. Add in the general disruption that the digital era has caused in every part of our lives, and you’ve got a recipe for headaches. Millennials now comprise more than 36% of the American workforce, and are set to make up 75% of the workforce by 2030! Successfully recruiting and retaining Millennials and GenZ is the key to our growing economy, but for that to happen, we’ve got to engage immediately in creating succession strategies and multi-generational leadership development.

Brain Drain: Overcoming Decision Fatigue

July 11 – 6:15PM

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the limitless options available today? Those options lead to dozens, even hundreds, of decisions that we have to make each day. Decision fatigue isn’t new: America’s consumer-driven economy has had companies competing for our attention as far back as the 1890s. But over the past 15 years, the internet and social media have ramped up the “attention economy” to a new level of intensity that’s exhausting. It can leave us almost paralyzed by decision fatigue. It’s a big part of the reason we feel tired, unfocused and frazzled.

Join me and Dream Curator Lindsey Maier as we explore how decision fatigue happens, tactics for dialing down the information overload (without completely unplugging), and ways to regain your focus (and maybe even your sanity).

The Case for Finally Cleaning Your

Too often, people are shamed or criticized for being untidy. That’s wrong. But we should take seriously the research that shows clutter causes us stress and interferes with getting work done. “Constant visual reminders of disorganization drain our cognitive resources and reduce our ability to focus. They also found that when participants cleared clutter from their work environment, they were better able to focus and process information, and their productivity increased.”
