THIS MONTH'S ARTICLES

 

Successful Job Shadowing Event Held with Wright State

Submitted by Betsy Brown, College Relations Committee Chair

 

A job shadowing event was held for the Human Resource Management majors at Wright State University. MVHRA’s College Relations Committee (CRC) worked in collaboration with Dr. Kim Lukaszewski, the faculty advisor of the university’s Human Resource (HR) Club, and the club officers to make this event a true success. The job shadowing event provided the students an opportunity to be paired with an HR professional for either a half of day or a whole day. The students learned about and experienced the HR professional’s job duties and responsibilities first hand. In addition, it provided time for students to ask about the HR profession.

 

There were both 18 HR professionals and HR majors that participated in the event over a two-week period. The MVHRA members that participate provided a fine sampling of industries which included: education, engineering, healthcare, hospitality, insurance, manufacturing, non-profit, staffing, and technology. Specific companies included: Dayton Foundation, Kettering Health Network, Kodak, McGohan Brabender, Red Roof Inns, Edison State Community College, Nuvasive, Manpower, The Job Center, Dayton Phoenix Group, BWI, Cintas, Green County Public Library, 11th Hour Staffing, Momma Rosa’s, Germain Solutions, and DMAX.

 

The feedback received from the students was very positive. They believed it gave them realistic insights into what HR professionals do on a day-to-day basis, and what they learn about in class was being put into practice. The students stated this was a valuable experience and recommended that all HR majors should participate.  Several on-going relationships have been established as a result of this job shadowing event.

 

For those HR professionals who volunteered their time and allowed an HR major to shadow them at work, a survey will be forthcoming. You will receive an email with the link to participate.

 

A special thank you to Linda Dean, the CRC program sponsor, who is the driving force behind this event. Job well done, Linda!

True Success - A Night of Networking Event for Senior HR Majors at Wright State University

Submitted by Betsy Brown, College Relations Committee Chair

 

Night of Networking event was held for the Senior Human Resource Management (HR) majors at Wright State University on October 22nd. The officers of the University’s Human Resource (HR) Club worked in collaboration with their faculty advisors, Dr. Kim Lukaszewski and Betsy Brown, Chair of MVHRA’s College Relations Committee (CRC), to make this event a true success.

 

The networking event provided the senior HR majors an opportunity to hone their networking skills in a comfortable environment and interact with various HR professionals representing many different organizations. The students were able to ask questions about the HR profession and about their own career interests from seasoned HR professionals.

 

There were 16 HR professionals, 25 Senior HR majors, and 1 HR Wright State faculty in attendance for this event. The HR professionals represented various companies which included:

 

APRIMO, CompuNet Clinical Laboratories, DMAX, Ltd., 11th Hour Staffing, Emerson, Gallagher, Huffy Corporation, Integra LifeSciences, JJR Solutions, McGohan Brabender, MVHRA, Reynolds & Reynolds, Strategic HR Inc., and Wright State University. The HR professionals also varied across different HR positions. Titles included: Associate Consultant, Director of HR, Executive Director of HR, HR Business Partner, HR Generalist/Client Manager, HR Manager, Manager of HR Administration, Market Development Specialist, Recruiter, Recruiting and Employee Experience Manager, and Senior Consultant.

 

The feedback received from both the HR professionals and HR students was very positive.  The students felt it was very easy to approach and speak to the professionals in the room about the field of HR. The HR professionals thought the students were well prepared and had great questions.  

Both the students and HR professionals believed this a valuable experience and hope it will continue in the future.

 

A very special thank you to all who participated and to MVHRA for sponsoring this event. It would not have been possible without your support.

The cornerstone concept is that great leaders, like great dogs, exhibit four key traits: they are faithful to their pack, inspirational to their teammates, determined to succeed and observant of their surroundings. By drilling down into each "FIDO factor" you'll discover new ways to upgrade your leadership quotient, including:

  • How an "I've got your tail" attitude builds trust
  • What great leaders of the pack do
  • Ways to become more doggedly determined
  • How to pick up on small details to avoid big problems

LuncheonCreating a Culture of Civility in the Workplace

Speaker: Marcus S. Nagy, Ph.D.

Location: Sinclair Community College

Time: 11:15 AM - 11:30 AM: Registration & Networking

11:30 AM - 12:00 PM: Announcements & Lunch

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM: Speaker

 

This presentation will introduce the notion of civility in the workplace and how creating a culture of civility can increase respect for all employees within a workgroup. In doing so, acceptance and inclusion will be enhanced for all members of the workgroup, regardless of sex, race, religion, or any other protected group. Hence, civility is more than a diversity initiative that often focuses on only one protected group. In addition, it will be argued that increasing civility will result in fewer claims of sexual harassment while also reducing organizational costs associated with absenteeism and turnover, and increasing job satisfaction and performance. Finally, steps that can be taken to build a culture of civility in the workplace will be presented.
