May 22 GO HERC Spring Meeting a Success!
GO HERC members from the state of Oregon and southwest Washington gathered on the Willamette University campus in Salem May 22 for the GO HERC Spring Meeting.
Eileen Edmunds, Managing Partner and Senior Consultant at ModernThink was the featured speaker. She presented on “Understanding Employee Engagement Trends to Improve Recruitment and Engagement on Your Campus,” and “Strategies for Title IX Data Collection.” Edmunds spoke on how the trends reflected in the data are manifested on participating college and university campuses and provided insight into how the engagement experience, or lack thereof, of certain groups of employees on campuses affects an institution’s ability to recruit and retain talented individuals. She offered information on creating conditions that enable employees to perform at their very best; infusing an “Employer of Choice” mentality throughout the workforce, and creating a culture of change

Women whose voice patterns involve "up-speak," or raising their voices at the end of each sentence, may be undercutting their careers, John Baldoni, leadership development chair at N2Growth, writes. He recommends employing a voice coach to improve "your vocalization so your inner self is projected credibly and without distraction."

By tailoring your summary to each opportunity and focusing on the specific accomplishments you've reached, you can write a better resume summary, according to Jane Heifetz, a contributing editor at Harvard Business Review. Avoid generic and vague terms, but discuss your years of experience and the types of industries you've worked in, writes Heifetz.

Recent lawsuits are shaking up the on-demand economy, encouraging some startups to reclassify workers as employees before regulators step in. Some say the switch will ultimately be beneficial, but others, such as Homejoy, have opted to shut down. "Many of these companies operate on very thin margins -- not all can absorb the hit of having to switch to an employee workforce," said Jamie Davidson of Redpoint Ventures.
