Scottsdale Job Network NEXT MEETING: TUES, OCT 2Guest speaker:

Peter Polk, Retired Healthcare Executive
Governor’s Task Force on Aging-Mature Worker InitiativePresenting:  Conversational Rituals

How can we overcome frustrations and avoid misunderstandings that result from gender differences in conversational style?  When conversational rituals are not understood, we tend to interpret them literally = misinterpreting the speaker’s intentions and abilities.  In every office, no matter what part of the world, and no matter what kind of business, there’s one activity without which no work could ever get done …… Talking.  In any job search, effective talking at an interview can result from knowing conversational style to apply whether the interviewer is a man or woman.

How to Attract, Hire and Retain Baby Boomers by quotes

Calling all human resource professionals, hiring managers and business owners!

Looking for great employees?  The secret to your talent acquisition challenges may be in hiring and retaining baby boomers – a generation that is 78 million strong.  Because the cohort of 44 million Gen Xers isn’t nearly a large enough to fill all the positions baby boomers now hold, companies must get creative with their hiring strategies or face dire staffing consequences.  This workshop will explore many myths about boomer workers and why leading-edge boomers make excellent, low maintenance employees.  Find out what boomers really want (and it isn’t always money!), how to attract them to your company and how to get them to stay on the job past traditional retirement age. 


The workshop will be facilitated by:

Fred Ricker, Corporate Outreach Consultant, Scottsdale Boomerz, with over 21 years senior management experience working with major organizations such as IBM, CSC Consulting, W.W. Grainger, Inc., Johnson & Johnson, 3M, Abbott Labs, along with health care providers such as UCLA, Stanford University Medical designing, and implementation of “human capital investment” programs focused on attracting, hiring, training, and development of company human resources.  He is a strong advocate for the value of hiring “boomers” in organizations seeking an evolving recruitment avenue/strategy.

Chris Payne, Human Resource Specialist, Scottsdale Boomerz, with extensive experience within private and non-profit organizations to enhance their corporate cultures and improve their business.  He is the Principal of Dance With The Wind Consulting, but prior to that, Chris held executive positions in Human Resources at Telecommunications, Biotechnology, and Defense firms in the Southwest, serving as a change agent in times of unprecedented growth.  His technical experience includes organizational foundation-building, team start-up, management coaching, performance management systems, mediation, and leadership skills training.
