  • HR Performance Metrics & Earning that Seat at the Executive Table
    HR Performance Metrics & Earning that Seat at the Executive Table Anisa Aven, CEO of TurnKey Coaching & Development Solutions with Sri Chellappa, President of Engagedly Recorded: Jan 18 2017 30 mins
    What it really means to be a strategic HR leader.

    HR leaders who want a seat at the executive ​"​strategy planning​"​ table need to become Human Resources critical thinkers who align their people plans (HR strategy) with the strategic goals and profitability of the company. (Look at any HR discussion forum, and you’ll find some version of this question: How can HR get a “seat at the table” and become a strategic business partner?) But most HR leaders find themselves occupied in a problem-solving role as employee reactionaries; "we need a new hire"... "we need disciplinary help" "We have a problem employee"... "We need our managers to get training on the new compliance laws." Far too often, people-pleasing HR leaders fail to cultivate the mindset necessary for creating strategy that adds value to the overall organizational success. This not only stems from traditional HR expectations which focus on people, compliance, and problems but also from HR leaders not managing their own strategic value and ​intentionally ​building their department​ and initiatives ​​​​​on a profitability mindset.​ ​ Companies that want to ensure future success will look to HR to furnish better succession plans, more effective methods of retaining employees, programs to improve employee engagement, and refined performance management and training processes. (If they don’t find what they need from HR, they will reduce budgets, outsource, and shift responsibilities to other service departments.)​ HR departments won’t see improved budgets or more power and responsibilities until there’s a shift in HR mindset and a focus on HR Strategy that aligns with business needs. ​

    This relaxed chat addresses how HR leaders can earn that seat at the table by focusing on profitability, innovation, and the growth of the company.

  • Girls Can Code - It is Never Too Early to Start the Conversation
    Girls Can Code - It is Never Too Early to Start the Conversation Anita R. Wood, Assistant Professor, Computer Information Technology at Pennsylvania College of Technology Apr 24 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    As a professor in a STEM career path, programming, I frequently ask my female student “How did you become interested in this career?” The answer seems to center on one fact – “My parents exposed me to computers when I was younger. As I became more and more interested they helped me understand there was a career in this.”

    This early introduction to computer helps my female students overcome another observation I had made – girls feel like boys have been ‘engineering’ or ‘coding’ for a long time.

    The stereotypical comment “Boys play with Legos and robots, and girls play with dolls and tea sets,” this seems to support this observation.

    So, how do we address the lack of females entering into STEM careers? I propose we start at home.

    This webinar addresses some of the obstacles we must overcome with regards to leveling the playing field between girls entering STEM and boys.
