    WHAT SUCCESSFUL URBAN SCHOOLS DO! EXPERTS SHARE BEST PRACTICES

    in Education

    Show overview:


    A discussion with Ms. Linda Harris, Mr. Patrick Jones and Mr. James Taylor. Show title "What Successful Urban Schools Do! Experts Share Best Practices.


    NCEBC wants to welcome the full village to question, understand, and ask questions, about governance, educational policy, finances,  resources, and  the basic democratic principles of equity, fairness, and justice. It is important (if not, vital) that we have this conversation to continue to dispel the myth that black children are incapable of achieving high test scores,  therefore public schools are incapable of providing quality education.


    "We believe in accountability. We believe that data drives decision-making. We believe in research-based practices. These principles have been used for generations by high performing schools, principals and Superintendents; especially those working and succeeding in urban communities were poverty and race are the dominant elements. This conversation is about the politics, power, economics, and restructuring of a public school system into a charter school system."


    Diana Daniels, Executive Director, National Council on Educating Black Children

    HR Examiner Radio: Bob Corlett, Founder, Staffing Advisors

    in Business

    Bob Corlett continually upends the conventional wisdom in recruiting, developing hiring processes that are faster, more certain, and far less expensive than the old-school, unproven, and unexamined practices used nearly everywhere. 


    Probably because he can’t leave well enough alone, and almost certainly because he freely shares his innovative approaches, Bob has been named as one of the 100 most influential people in staffing. He is one of the unruly founding members of the Editorial Advisory Board for The HR Examiner, he writes a very popular nationally syndicated weekly column the American Cities Business Journals, and he is a frequently requested speaker at Society for Human Resources Management meetings. 


    Bob is a recruiting practitioner, founding his own executive search firm, Staffing Advisors, in 2002. Staffing Advisors quickly attracted a client list of some of Washington’s most prominent organizations. The firm conducts searches in every functional area and career level — primarily for associations; charitable, education, and other nonprofits; and high growth companies.

    Podcast: What All the Performance Management Changes Mean for Total Rewards Team

    in Business

    In the past year nearly 50 percent of companies have considered eliminating performance evaluations and 85 percent of them, say HR professionals, are seeking to simplify the performance management process. This shift has a significant impact on how compensation and benefits managers determine employee incentives.


    Consequently those that run compensation and benefits functions, or "total rewards" as it's often known, should focus on three priorities in particular this year.


    1    Pay-for performance initiatives and how total rewards leaders reward employees when performance management ratings are being eliminated.


    2    Return on investment in the total rewards function, and ensuring that HR teams working on the projects that will have the greatest impact on employee retention and engagement.


    3    Setting forward-looking quarterly goals that focus on skill development, and aligning rewards with that development, instead of looking back and rewarding past performance; something that typically occurs with an annual review.



    Monique McCloud-Manley, practice leader of the CEB Total Rewards Leadership Council, discusses these trends and how total rewards professionals should respond.
