Getting Strategic Mileage From Your Employee Survey
Bill Schiemann
3/26/15 - 6:00 PM

HR professionals are being challenged to have strategic metrics that help with important organizational decisions, but current uses of surveys often underutilize the eyes of employees. Recently evolving strategic surveys are helping with recruiting, onboarding, performance management, training evaluation, leader development, retention of top performers, employer branding and many more talent decisions. Based on research with 2000+ organizations recently published in Hidden Drivers of Success: Leveraging Employee Insights for Strategic Advantage, Bill Schiemann, CEO of the Metrus Institute and SIOP Fellow, will offer ideas and discussion on how surveys can provide more value, information and actionable outcomes, while limiting intrusiveness. Bill will review the types of decisions that can be made in organizations based on survey data, but are often missed.

METRO Career Day 2015
3/27/15 - 9:00 AM

Please join us for Career Day! Mark your calendars for March 27, 2015! METRO has developed a program that explores major career options available to I/O and OD professionals, students, and those looking to make career transitions. Join us to hear early career and senior practitioners discuss the knowledge, skills, abilities, and characteristics that employers are seeking and how they go about identifying suitable candidates. In addition, hear about the latest trends in the job market and the ins and outs of the job search from recent job seekers.

The program will include a panel discussion and breakout sessions where you will have an opportunity to talk with experts and colleagues directly about issues in your career development. This year our exciting group of panelists will include applied psychologists from a variety of industries and work environments. Our esteemed group of panelists come from organizations including:

  • AKA Enterprise Solutions
  • AON Hewitt
  • Bellevue Hospital Center
  • Bertelsmann
  • Columbia University
  • DDI
  • Deutsche Bank
  • Goldman Sachs
  • Half Moon Consulting
  • Hudson's Bay Company/Saks Fifth Avenue
  • JetBlue
  • LaGuardia Community College, CUNY
  • North Shore LIJ Hospitals
  • PepsiCo.
  • Personnel Sciences Center
  • YSC

The program will conclude with a general networking session where you'll have an additional opportunity to talk with experienced I/O and OD professionals. Some of the issues and questions the panel will address are:

  • A close-up explanation of the differences between the internal and external consultant role.
  • What shifts in perspective do we need to make given the current work environment?
  • What technical and non-technical resources are available for help in the job search?
  • How can I provide added value or distinguish myself from everyone else?
  • Some perspectives on how careers progress.
  • What do employers want to see on my resume?
  • Current trends in job markets
  • Internships - are they out there, are they worth it, and if so, how do I get one?

The program starts at 9:20 AM, but please join us at 9:00 AM for coffee and networking! The event should end by approximately 1:00 PM.
