    Choose to Bridge the Skills Gap

    in Business

    #TChat Radio is all new on Tuesday, May 7, 2013, at 7:30 pm ET (4:30 pm PT).
    The worlds of education and business are moving farther and farther apart. The skills shortage many economists and other "world of work" thought leaders keep talking about is real and leaving millions behind.
    Schools aren't encouraging students to become bold thinkers, dreamers, and doers -- and businesses are expecting them to be just those persona types without much investment.   This is why the Choose2Matter and TalentCulture #TChat communities are coming together this week for #TChat Radio and #TChat Twitter Chat.   Together we can choose to bridge the skills gap and help students find mentors in communities like ours to greatly enhance the lives of these amazing young people today.   #TChat co-creators and hosts, Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman welcome this week's guests, Choose2Matter co-founders Angela Maiers and Mark Moran.   This will be another great "world of work" show, so we hope to see you here!   **SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: We’re thrilled to announce our first “world of work” partnership — with Achievers. Read about it here!

    Life Skills 101

    in Spirituality

    In every one of our lives we are going to encounter problems, challenges, stresses, change, relationship issues, broken hearts, death, health issues, career issues, etc. Schools don't teach us the skills that we need in order to deal with day-to-day issues that we encounter throughout our life. We will begin the discussion of the skills that you need to have and to master in order to be able to deal successfully with the issues you contend  with in your life. The better equipped you are to deal with these issues  the easier your life will be. You will still have these issues but you'll have the skills to deal with them.

    The REAL Impact of 408(b)(2)

    in Business

    Organizations that sponsor ERISA retirement plans have long struggled with the complexities of their vendors' fee arrangements. The Department of Labor ("DOL") blames much of that struggle on an information gap that divides plan managers and vendors.

    During a lengthy study prior to 2010, the DOL found that evaluations of fees charged to participants in ERISA plans was largely driven by a plan's vendors, through intricate, multi-page reports that were filled with complex industry jargon and formulas. The DOL's findings were the impetus for the expansion of the duty held by plan sponsors to conduct an analysis of their vendors' fees and to document the results.
