Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) May 1, 2008
The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a global professional association and educator that is advancing the science of strategic talent management, and Sequent Inc., a consulting and outsourcing services firm helping organizations improve corporate performance through the integration of people strategies, process management and technology, today announced that they will host an expert panel discussion of the blended workforce at a May 14, 2008 B-School Network and Learn event, to take place at Franklin University.
The networking and breakfast event, open to interested professionals from throughout the greater Columbus area, will be held on Wednesday, May 14 from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. at Franklin University’s Richard M. Ross Auditorium, 301 E. Rich St., in Columbus.
Panelists from area organizations will share their experiences with and strategies for managing the multi-generational workforce. These industry leaders have adjusted their workforce planning and employee engagement programs to better attract and retain the best and brightest of every age bracket, and have implemented intergenerational collaboration and talent management strategies that work.
This important discussion is prompted by the impending shift in the overall age of the U.S. population. By 2010, as the massive Baby Boomer generation retires and fewer skilled workers are available to replace them, organizations of every size will face a labor shortage and brain drain of dramatic proportions. In addition, Millennials and GenXers have different workplace demands and countless global opportunities. The dynamic blend of fixed and variable talent is one of the fastest-growing business strategies today. An organization's survival will depend on redefining succession plans and transforming talent practices to develop an innovative blended workforce that will not only create business impact today, but propel competitive advantage for the future.
Panelists include Bill Hutter, Sequent Founder and CEO; Gale King, Senior Vice President, Property & Casualty Human Resources for Nationwide, one of the largest diversified insurance companies in the world; Roger Mar, Vice President, Business Development for Lee Hecht Harrison's Columbus office; and Rodney Whitmore, Senior Vice President of Human Resources for the Healthcare Supply Chain Services - Pharmaceutical and Generics businesses of Cardinal Health.
The HCI- and Sequent-sponsored B-School Network and Learn event is free with advance registration at http://www.humancapitalinstitute.org, and is recommended for director, vice president and C-level executives who are responsible for company growth and results.
