Holidays can heighten tensions in interfaith offices
The Kansas City Star    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail
Most years, Karen Ross doesn't mind the Christmas tree at her office or the carols playing in the background while she clacks on her keyboard. But this year, the Miami administrative assistant is spending much more than 40 hours at work. While Ross is thankful to have a job, she finds herself agitated by spending her early evening listening to Santa songs at the office when she should be home lighting Hanukkah candles with her family. "It's a little uncomfortable." More

Cracking the 'bamboo ceiling'
Diversity Executive Magazine    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
While much is written about the participation of African-Americans, Hispanics, women and other diverse segments in the workforce, there is a need to highlight more facts that identify the distinguishing elements of Asian-Pacific Americans' (APAs) participation and strengthen efforts that increase the inclusiveness of this segment in corporations. The Asia Society, an institution that works to foster understanding between Asians and Americans, saw this as an opportunity to develop its 2010 Asian Pacific Americans Corporate Survey, which would highlight the facts regarding the status of APAs in corporations.

If creating a government workforce that reflects the people it serves, particularly at top civil service levels, is a high priority for Uncle Sam, you can't tell it by his record. White men held more than 61 percent of senior pay level positions in fiscal 2009, far more than their representation in the total workforce, according to the latest Annual Report on the Federal Work Force by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Language a barrier to health care
The Orange County Register    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
This seems pretty obvious: Foreign-born Latino patients had a more positive perception of health care quality when clinical service providers spoke to them in their native language. William A. Vega, executive director of the Edward R. Roybal Institute on Aging at the USC School of Social Work, came to that conclusion after a study published in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine. More

PRWeb    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Many organizations are working hard to increase their veteran outreach activities, and increase the number of veterans entering their workforce. While much effort and emphasis is being placed on the recruitment and employment of veterans, organizations must also focus on the transition process for veterans entering or returning to the civilian workplace.

Nursing and health care reform
AOL Health    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Nursing is a force of three million strong. Our diversity — black, white, young, old, male, female, foreign and American-born — is significant. But we strive for a common goal: the health and wellness of the patients, families, communities, states and nations that we care for. Uniting us to achieve that common goal are our nursing organizations and political action committees. Our voice is strong but it can be stronger. Our diversity can become our unity in these organizations. More

MSNBC    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Mark Judge, 59, spent 22 years in the publishing industry. Last year, he decided to take a buyout and turned his career sights on doing good. Judge is now doing a paid fellowship working for two nonprofits — the Youth Science Institute and the Resource Area for Teaching.

Managing in the new world of Generation Y
Forbes    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The way we have managed our organizations until now is finished. Generation Y, today's youngest and newest employees, arrive on the job with expectations unlike anything we've seen before. For instance, they emerge in a world where technologies like Facebook and Twitter have made gratification quicker than instant. Barely a decade ago most of us would have been happy to receive a response to a letter in less than a week. Now even a moment feels like a long time. More

On the other side of the glass ceiling, a glass cliff
TIME    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Are women in leadership roles judged more harshly than men because people are just harder on women? Or is it because women are simply worse at leadership than men? Or could it be that people come under more scrutiny when they take jobs that are usually held by the opposite sex? A new paper out of Yale University's School of Management suggests it may be the last one. More
