Earlier this month, Clearwater Consulting Group had the honor of presenting at the 2016 National Association of African Americans in Human Resources (NAAAHR) Conference held in Atlanta, GA. In attendance were over 400 HR business professionals, from emerging leaders to CHROs, all seeking to share knowledge and networking opportunities with colleagues from across the country.
You could have heard a pin drop. The SVP of HR was sitting with his CEO and reviewing the recent dismal turnover numbers. For the sixth month in a row, things were not getting any better. “I have an idea, let’s do that engagement survey you’ve been wanting to do the last few years and we will find out where our problem areas really are….” Is it any wonder the HR leader just shook his head in despair.
For many of us, this is the time of year to run around like crazy looking for gifts for those we love. We may drive ourselves senseless looking for the perfect gift for our spouse, partner, boyfriend or girlfriend, son or daughter, or life-long friend.
