Attracting, Growing and Retaining Millennials

Millennials-Brainstorming

It is now well-known that the workforce of the future will be dominated by the Millennials. This generation, the first to grow up with the technological gadgets that we have come to depend on, adapts these technologies with far greater ease than the previous generations, and come with their own characteristics.

Since the workplace is going to be filled up by those of this generation, it helps organizations to learn how to make the best use of the talents and abilities the Millennials bring. This can be both a challenge and an opportunity for organizations’ HR.

Organizations should build the image of being millennial-friendly and brand themselves accordingly. The aim should be to create an organization that the Millennials like to work in. Organizations should understand what the Millennials prefer and how they like to learn and develop themselves.

A webinar from TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for the human resources areas, will show how to do this. Lynn Ware, CEO and President, Integral Talent Systems, Inc., will be the expert at this webinar, which is being organized on November 20. Please visit TrainHR to enroll for this webinar.

Time Management

Time and Task Management Effectiveness: Working Smarter Every Day

Time-and-Task-Management (1)

Managing time…well, this should be one of the foremost challenges that modern man has faced. Today, with all our gadgetries and reminders which keep beeping to remind us of our nearly every task that we do, right from waking up to going to bed, the challenge to beat time has increased.

But what we need to do is to understand that here, smart work, rather than hard work, is the solution. One can work hard, but managing tasks within the stipulated time requires a person to be smart and think on her feet and move on to the next task. Failure to finish tasks at the allocated time results in building up a queue that will grow on and on, becoming menacing every time you look at it.

How does one handle tasks and complete them by the allocated time? This requires just smart working and nothing else, least of all a magic wand. The ways by which to adapt this smart attitude and get tasks carried out without generating a pipeline of uncompleted tasks will be the learning a webinar from TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training for all the areas of human resources, is going to teach.

This session, which is being organized on August 7, will have Chris DeVany, the Founder and President of Pinnacle Performance Improvement Worldwide, as the expert.

The core of this learning is that the more one puts off the important tasks, the more difficult it will become to carry them out later. The pressure of having to weigh the importance of the next important job burdens the mind. This makes the impending task a lot more complicated than it is because the worker is under greater pressure to complete it than is required.

The worst sin for any person, that too for an employee, is procrastination. Far from preventing completion of a task, postponement will only make the task reappear as a monster later. Chris will show how to complete assigned tasks within designated timeframes to ensure that the work goes on smoothly. He will show how employees, instead of dreading the burdensome task, can actually enjoy working on it.

He will cover the following areas at this session, which is useful to managers such as CEO, Senior Vice President, Vice President, Executive Director, Managing Director, Regional Vice President, Area Supervisor and Manager:

  • Self-Evaluation How Do You Manage Your Time
  • Concentration and Focus
  • Planning to Succeed
  • Decision Making and Prioritizing
  • Getting Organized
  • Establishing Boundaries to Create Balance
  • Setting SMART Goals

At the end of this learning, the participants will be able to:

  • Achieve better results through more effective planning and clarifying objectives
  • Delegate effectively and free yourself for bigger tasks
  • Set group goals and priorities
  • Eliminate the time wasters
  • Handle interruptions and distractions
  • Say no to unreasonable demands
  • Redirect your efforts to the most important and valid tasks
  • Make sure there is time in the day for you
  • Learn strategies to improve concentration and increase your efficiency

How to Create Excellence in Your Workforce and Your Organization

Excellence-Sign

The primary goal of any organization is to create excellence, both in the workforce and in the business. Everyone is agreed on this, but not everyone is sure about how to do that. One of the primary things organizations need to do is to bring about a change in their outlook. Many organizations live in the past, where they may have had an excellent run, but to expect that to continue indefinitely, in a milieu of change, is being foolish.

So, what should organizations do to bring about excellence? This is the learning a webinar from TrainHR, a leading provider of professional training, is going to impart. A sixty-minute webinar that it is organizing on July 23, at which Grant Schneider, president and founder of Performance Development Strategies will be the expert, will show the ways by which organizations can help their workforce reach levels of excellence.

Organizations that don’t progress fast are those that are hesitant to initiate and adapt change. Being rigid is not going to give them results that may have come at some point in the past. It is also most likely that leaders in organizations that stagnate keep reacting to situations rather than planning change and bringing about that transition.

In any business, an organization that adapts itself to changing times quickly and painlessly is one in which the CEO asks all of two critical questions from time to time:

  • Is our organizations competent enough to survive in today’s environment?
  • Are you and the team ready to take on the challenge that change brings into the organization?

It is perceptive questions such as these that will determine what the organization’s new standing, or its new normal, will be. This is what gives it the ability to continually reinvent the organization from time to time in the face of new challenges. Called organizational sustainability, this is the organization’s skill in overseeing any harsh and dramatic change that could be of a monetary, social, business, compliance, or an environmental nature. It is only the willingness to be flexible and to adapt that will help the organization tide over these challenges.

fal

This webinar will delve in depth into all these aspects. Grant will explore how managers have to sharpen their decision-making abilities in the face of adversity brought about by change. This they have to do while minding the fact that their decisions could affect not only employees, but also their livelihoods and families. They have to also keep in mind any external circumstance that is beyond their control.

During the course of this highly absorbing learning session, Grant will cover the following areas:

  • Defining what sustainability really means to an organization
  • Why organizations struggle with creating sustainability
  • Managing horizontally to create a competitive edge
  • Determining your organization’s alignment and therefore your sustainability

Professionals in positions that require them to closely steer the organization towards change, such as HR Professionals, CEO, Senior Vice President, Vice President, Executive Director, Managing Director, Regional Vice President, Area Supervisor and Managers will benefit in a huge manner from this webinar.
