Dear GVCSHRM Member,
On January 15 we will be presenting an exciting program called Micro-Inequities in the Workplace. Olga Mendez, Yesenia Garcia-Key, and John Gebhardt, SPHR, MS will take you through a journey of learning to enhance awareness of how Micro-Inequities have a negative impact on your workforce. Olga is the Human Resources Manager at Verizon Wireless in Rochester. In 2008 -2009, she was the Spokesperson for Domestic Violence at VZW NY. Yesenia is the Community Engagement Coordinator at Excellus BlueCross BlueShield. She serves as a liaison for her department (Office of Inclusion) and the local community agencies. John is the Director of Human Resources at Mark IV Enterprises. His areas of expertise include Lean Strategy, Team Problem Solving, Training & Development, Compensation Design, and Employee Relations.
Micro Inequities cause disengagement in the workplace, which in turn lowers morale, productivity and the value placed on individuals by the organization and management. Learning how to identify, recognize, and address these inequities gives us the opportunity to create relationships and partnerships that will improve the overall landscape, morale, and bottom lines of companies.
By the end of this session participants will be able to:
- Recognize micro messages that can either foster or hinder employee engagement and productivity
- Understand how relating with each other allows us to retain diverse talent in the workplace
This program will be held at Nothnagle’s Corporate Offices located at 217 West Main Street, Rochester, NY through the courtesy of Mark Siwiec & Associates.
Howard Cotton, SPHR
