Business Briefs: NKY Chamber hosts generational workforce workshop; CTI expands again

On Thursday, July 11, the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce (NKY Chamber) invites business leaders, managers, and supervisors, as well as human resource professionals to attend: “Igniting Passion within Employees: Designing Organizations for the Workforce of the Future.”

Dr. Angela Crawford, Dean of the College of Business at Thomas More University, will lead the session and share research and insights into the current influences of generational and societal shifts in the workplace.

“Organizations are feeling the shift from Gen X workers to Millennials, and now Gen Z is joining the workforce as well,” said Debby Shipp, Vice President of Business Growth and International Trade for the NKY Chamber. “It’s important to discuss how to meet the needs of a generational employee base, and businesses will walk away with actionable items on how they can motivate their own workforce.”

Over the past 20 years, Crawford has served in a variety of positions helping more than 30 companies design, develop, and strengthen connections with their customers and employees. Her specialties include customer relationship management, contact centers, sales, marketing, strategy, research, and employee experience.

The “Igniting Passion within Employees: Designing Organizations for the Workforce of the Future” session will take place at the NKY Chamber (300 Buttermilk Pike, Suite 330 Ft. Mitchell, KY 41017) from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. SHRM and HRCI credit is available. A light breakfast will be served.

The cost is $25 for NKY Chamber members, $40 for future NKY Chamber members, and $20 for NKYP Passport holders. Event attendees must register online at nkychamber.com/events.

CTI announces expansion in Texas and California

Covington-based CTI Clinical Trial and Consulting Services (CTI), announces the opening of new offices in Dallas and San Diego.

CTI is a multi-national, privately held, full-service contract research organization.

The Dallas location was chosen because of its proximity to local medical centers, allowing team members and visiting pharmaceutical sponsors easier access to contacts and resources surrounding the academic research centers.

The San Diego office is in La Jolla and was chosen because of the area’s reputation as the biotech hub of southern California. CTI currently collaborates with many southern California biotechnology companies and academic centers.

“We are thrilled to expand our workforce in Dallas and San Diego,” remarks Timothy J. Schroeder, Founder and CEO. “Both locations are rich with talent, and we look forward to the opportunities that will come from becoming a part of those communities. We have a very long history of successful collaborations in both areas with leading academic centers and emerging biotechnology companies and are excited to expand our team in both cities.”

CTI, with an annual staff retention rate of 95 percent, has been working for two decades in the drug development industry across North America, Europe, South America, Pac-Asia, and Africa, specializing in clinical research programs involving critically ill patient populations. It has more than 30 offices worldwide to serve more than 200 pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device clients.

The company recently announced additional growth in the United States in Raleigh, NC and San Francisco, CA
