Topic: "Open the Front Door, Close the Back Door: The Impact of Culture on Recruiting and Retention"
Time: 10:15 am EDT
Every organization, whether it is a chemical company or an academic department, has a unique culture based on its history, people, geography, and a myriad of other factors. While some organizations have a long history with a well-established culture and traditions, other organizations that have been recently formed are faced with the challenge of creating a culture from scratch. The success of an organization in creating and sustaining a desirable culture can have a significant impact on recruiting, retention, and general satisfaction of its people. This seminar reviews the engineering literature and describes different models and activities which departments have successfully used in this area. These types of activities also serve to shape students’ expectations about what it means to enter the engineering profession and to help students identify themselves as engineers
