On Tuesday, April 3rd I attended an HR Summit in Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel about the HR Trends that are facing businesses nowadays, as well as the future of it. While this summit was targeted towards for profits in general, it could be applied to a great extent in the non-profit or non-governmental organizations.
Speakers in the summit came from different backgrounds. Some work in health insurance, outsourcing, retention, entrepreneurship and marketing. They were all directly or indirectly concerned with what is driving or shaping the employee workforce nowadays in the US and North America.
A lot of the fellows know Chicago by name. Few of them have visited it, and fewer are considering visiting it. What many don’t know about Chicago is that it is considered one of the major US cities due to its history, location, culture and arts! Here are some trivia about Chicago that will blow your mind!
Last October, 24 Chinese medical professionals participated in a U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) Healthcare Training Program. They attended a week of training at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC). Unlike most Chinese who returned to their hometowns or traveled around China to celebrate the 1949 founding of the People’s Republic of China, these 24 Chinese visitors spent this “Golden Week” in the classroom at UPMC for training sessions on hospital administrative finance, information technology, handling the media and U.S. insurance. In addition, they had the opportunity to tour several top facilities such as the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh and experiment with the stimulation dummy patients at WISER.
