March 31 - Strategies to Enhance Your Employee Performance Review and Assessment Process, Presented by Marc Steyer, S.E., LEED AP, and Natalie Tse, S.E., LEED AP - RECORDING IS NOW AVAILABLE!

It is not uncommon for managers of structural engineering firms to facilitate employee performance reviews. The frequency, format, complexity, and formality of these reviews vary widely from company to company. A vast majority of human resource managers argue that annual performance reviews have little impact on individual performance, and may lead to significant reductions in employee productivity and engagement. This presentation aims to highlight key strategies to transform the traditional performance review into a positive, productive, and beneficial process for employees, managers, and a firm’s office culture. With reference to SE3 survey data, recent studies by other organizations and institutions, this session will share best practices for the feedback process, for greatest impact on employee engagement, career development, and overall retention.

April 7 - A Perspective on the Changing Workplace, Presented by Victoria Arbitrio, PE, SEBC, F.SEI - RECORDING IS NOW AVAILABLE!

In this session, Vicki will share her observations from throughout her prolific career and highlight strategies that make for positive change in workplace cultures. She will touch upon a variety of buzzword topics, including, but not limited to, racial and gender equity, generational differences, navigating parenthood, work-life balance, social/political climates, events in the national spotlight, and technological advancements. Together these variables impact our behaviors and perceptions of the structural engineering profession. With the right perspective, we can begin to better understand the problem we're trying to solve.

Join us after the talk for an open discussion with Vicki Arbitrio and the SE3 leadership!
