The Innovate Work Summit will be a unique gathering of North Carolina’s leaders, thought leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs across industry and represent the decision makers, practitioners, policy makers, and innovators who are equipped to move economic growth forward.
“We are delighted to welcome some of the most engaged speakers devoted to helping veterans in this collaborative effort to work together and embrace some of the biggest talent issues in the emerging workplace,” said Infusion Group founder Judy White. “The Innovate Work Summit 2014 is truly a unique opportunity for executive leaders across professions to come together and move the needle forward on tapping into and maximizing diverse talent in a rapidly shifting global marketplace.”
Confirmed panelist speakers include:
· Chris Jadick, executive director, Enable America
· Dr. Hugh Donohue, medical director, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North
· Bruce Warner, program director, Training Modernization Group
· Jamie Rufolo, director, AT&T Global Service Delivery, National President,
The panel will address some of the challenges facing employers specifically to veteran attraction, hiring, retention and sustaining high-performance today and showcase leading practices and solutions that deliver real results.
“Many employers have made it a priority to hire veterans, and this event comes at the ideal time,” said Chris Jadick, Executive Director of Enable America. “We look forward to sharing our knowledge in building bridges to the military population, as well as learn from others who are dedicated to improving hiring and retention outcomes for veterans.”
“Engaged organizations and communities are leading the way each day in their workplaces and local areas to advance veteran inclusion,” states White. “Many organizations hold an endearing commitment to hiring veterans and expanding opportunities where they can contribute their strengths to positively impact the business and community.”
Summit panelist speaker Jamie Rufolo, director, AT&T Global Service Delivery, National President, AT&T Veterans 501(c)(3) Employee Resource Group, military spouse states, “I am so thankful to work for a company that supports and understands what it’s like to be a part of a military family. Whether an employee here has formerly served or is currently serving (as Reservist, National Guard, spouse or family member), having an internal military-minded organization in our workplace (AT&T Veterans) that bridges employees from all aspects of our business, sets us apart. We truly have an environment that is inclusive of the unique differences faced and strengths built when coming from a military lifestyle. I have had the opportunity to not only create a career in which I – and my entire family – can take pride in (while my husband has served in the U.S. Army the past 14 years), but also the chance to lead and mentor the members of our non-profit 501(c)(3) who share these military experiences and a bond that no other co-worker could appreciate in the same way.”
The Innovate Work Summit offers a distinct opportunity for collaborative leaders to recognize their diverse talent and business initiatives, embrace challenges, explore possibilities, network with colleagues, and shape the emerging global workplace to move career opportunities and economic growth forward.
