The Knowledge Brain Drain

At the September 12th KM Chicago meeting, Rickie Tinimbang will present his master's Capstone research on The Knowledge Brain Drain. Mr. Tinimbang is interested in the problem of the retiring workforce, as senior employees leave companies due to retirement, leaving a smaller workforce with less experience. How will this impact the companies they leave? What can businesses do about it?

One option is to ensure knowledge transfer from the senior staff to junior staff through mentoring programs. Mr. Tinimbang will report on the mentoring program at a leading Fortune 500 company that specializes in risk management and consulting services.

Mr. Tinimbang is about to complete his Master's of Learning and Organizational Change at Northwestern. He is Administrator and Chief Operating Officer for Donnarich Home Health Care Inc., a provider of home healthcare services based in Lincolnwood, Illinois.

Please join us at our usual locations, Factiva's offices in the Loop or Allstate's offices in Northbrook from 5-7 pm. (Mr. Tinimbang will be at the Allstate location.) Details for the locations and dialing into the phone bridge are in the sidebar.

Hello All,

This sounds like just the thing I am studying right now - intergenerational dynamics (or lack therof ;-) in the workplace.

I'd like to invite everyone to TechVenue.com's Fall Fest - Friday, September 15th 6:30PM - ?.

This free party includes FREE domestic draft beer from 6:30-8:30pm for you and as many KM Chicago friends/colleagues as you would like to bring.

Who will be there?
Everyone and anyone who is leading, a member of, or
coordinating/promoting events for business and technology
organizations of all types (non and for-profits) in Chicagoland.

Take a look at our Chicago calendar and you'll get an idea of some who will be there. It's a chance to network and discover synergies between organizations that have never been, pun intended, "tapped" before.

So, come and enjoy networking with comrades and "competitors" alike
in a friendly atmosphere as we celebrate ahead of time a successful 4th quarter and beyond together!

WHERE:
Duffy's Tavern
420½ W. Diversey, Chicago, IL
WHEN: 6:30PM - ?
RSVP: No need to RSVP - just show up and ask to be let in to the TechVenue party! Bring a friend, else please pass this on if you can't make it - thank you.

CTA:
1) Clark/Lake Brown Line 6:08 pm
2) Diversey Stop 6:23
3) BUS #76 Eastbound 6:25
4) Diversey/Sheridan 6:30

I'm looking forward to seeing you there - if you don't recall what I
look like, just look for the bald guy! (;-)

Finally, if you want to network online with those coming prior to the party, feel free to use our free http://VisiVenue.com service and choose "TechVenue" as one of the organizations you are associated with in order to be matched up with others. Enjoy!

P.S. For those of you who don't like domestic draft beer, Duffy's
offers an upgrade option for just $10 per person that includes all
the premium beers we have on tap, plus an extra hour. That's $10 for
unlimited premium drafts from 6:30-9:30pm! Additionally, during the
time frame of your personal upgrade, most other cocktails are only $2, so there really is something for everyone!
Please Drink responsibly and have a safe ride arranged for yourself and others - thanks!
