SACRAMENTO BUSINESS REVIEW: 2017 HUMAN CAPITAL INDEX

In partnership with SAHRA, the Sacramento Business Review surveyed the local HR community to determine trends, and to forecast the future of human capital in Sacramento. Below are the key findings: 

 

❱❱ The current focus for human capital management in the region is on employee development, i.e., training for necessary work skills and development for future changes.

 

❱❱ Local organizations predict that their most important initiative during the first half of 2017 will be recruiting new talent, although they expect low levels of turnover – an apparent contradiction.

 

❱❱ More than three-quarters of employees view their pay and benefits positively, consistent with the data in our SBR/SAFE Credit Union Consumer Sentiment Survey.

 

❱❱ Seventy-five percent of organizations anticipate championing new or significantly revised human capital initiatives for 2017, including employee recognition in non-financial forms.

 

❱❱ HR departments expect to focus on improving employee engagement and satisfaction.

Ron Grant of Chipman Relocations honored in St. Louis

The United Excellence in Sales award went to Ron Grant, Chipman Relocation & Logistics in Portland, Oregon. Upon graduating from high school, Ron (pictured left) was a marine, completing two 13-month tours. From there, he worked for a number of industries ranging from managing liquor stores to owning a fiberglass repair shop. When he followed his love of outdoors to Alaska, he also found his niche – a sales professional in the moving business. Ron eventually grew weary of the cold Alaska winters and moved back to the lower 48 states. He ventured away from the moving industry to sell chemicals, but he learned one simple fact about sales that has carried him to decades of success, “selling is about relationships, so get to know your customers personally.” The moving and storage business continued to tug at Ron and in 1987 he found a home at Chipman as a national account sales representative. Thirty years later, he is now going to retire as Chipman’s top producing sales person. To stay engaged and involved in the industry, he participates in organizations such as the Worldwide ERC, PRC and PNWRC. He is also a gracious and humble mentor to several Chipman colleagues and finds time to volunteer throughout the Portland community.
