Thank you to those who helped us celebrate our annual IPMA-HR MCC Past Presidents' Event!

Over the past 50 years, our chapter has been guided and shaped 
by insightful leadership
grounded in tradition, yet coupled with
innovative conceptions. This has pioneered
the route that has
ultimately helped us grow into the next generation of leaders.
We would also like to extend a very special thank you to the 
Golden Key Group,
specifically, Gretchen McCracken, CEO,
and Janet Clement, COO, for sponsoring
our Chapters’
Past Presidents’ Event for the Fourth consecutive year!

of the American Red Cross.

the American Red Cross goes wherever we’re needed,
so people can have clean water, safe shelter and hot meals when they need them most."

Starting the Workforce Analytics Journey by IBM
"Five years ago in a Harvard Business Review article on how companies leveraged 
HR analytics for competitive advantage, my co-authors and I found only a small handful 
of companies to interview. Today, life is very different. Interest in analytics and storytelling
through data in HR is booming. But, HR as a whole is still learning how to set up an effective
analytics function. That is why I welcome thisreport. The first 100 days of any effort
is critical to success. Analytics is no different."

"...The typical approach is to develop the organization’s supervisors with the

U.S. organizations spend over $160 billion on employee development, with the largest
percentage being spent on supervisory training. Yet each year, we tend to see relatively
little improvement in employee satisfaction scores for either government employees or
employees in general..."
