Are your humans connecting the dots?

first_imgEarlier this month, Geezeo announced the sale of their company to Jack Henry and Associates. Financial executives across the industry took notice. Something big had happened: The continuing consolidation of technology providers is an industry-changing event for financial services. It was also a life-changing event for the executives involved. People were equally curious about how the acquisition might impact the operations of their organizations and what the next steps might be for the executives from Geezeo. This high-profile acquisition presented an incredible opportunity: Many credit unions tout their solutions based on consumers’ life stages and meeting members wherever they are in their financial journey. Any financial institution could have taken note and used this news to reach out with a highly personalized financial solution. It would not have taken sophisticated artificial intelligence or big data solutions. All that was needed was a high-touch human, genuinely interested in the lives of consumers, and able to connect the dots between this life-changing event, the need for trusted financial advice, and the products or services that financial institution could offer. Bryan Clagett, Chief Marketing Officer and Investor at Geezeo is one of those executives facing a different life in a post-acquisition world. He is an active, connected social media influencer. A brief internet research session could lead a curious financial executive to understand a great deal about his life and his values. When Geezeo’s sale was announced, he did not hear from his credit union. He did not hear from his bank. He heard from a big bank that saw the news, but did not already have Clagett as a customer. Clagett posted the anecdote to his LinkedIn page with this message: “You can have the best technology in the world, but if you don’t have the people that connect the dots and take action, you’re going to fail. Eventually.” When a FinTech executive pronounces that technology is not all it takes for financial institutions to thrive, credit unions should be listening. Humans are the unique differentiator that will help credit unions stand out in a crowded, commoditized financial services marketplace, but our industry must be more strategic with their human capital. Technology is not enough. Teaching people how to use technology is not enough. Credit unions must attract, develop, and retain talent that thinks creatively, brings unique gifts to work, and is motivated to make an impact. I have nearly two decades’ experience working with credit unions for strategic growth and have become concerned about a persistent theme: Strategic planning processes heavily emphasize growth through technology advances or field of membership expansions, but rarely incorporate human capital strategies. This realization served as the impetus for founding Humaidei, a human capital strategies consulting firm designed to help credit unions build workplaces that fit today’s diverse and changing workforce. Credit unions are well-positioned to be the workplaces and volunteer causes of choice for engaged individuals who want to use their talents in a meaningful way. They are also organized around values that demand diversity, equity, and inclusion. A strategic, intentional approach that develops executives, volunteers, and cultures will create talented, diverse teams that represent and connect well with your members and your community. While the Geezeo example is a story that was thrust in front of us as an industry, there are opportunities like this in your credit union every day. Your team members know which community leaders are retiring, whose kids are heading off to college, which non-profit just secured a significant grant, and myriad other life milestones. Have you built a culture that teaches them how to think about that information? Or are you still advancing your technological capabilities, then powering them with basic order takers? If you aren’t sure your team could have connected the dots– or would have felt empowered– to help a member in Clagett’s position, it is time to get more strategic with your human capital. Don’t let another strategic planning season go by without including this focus. 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Jill Nowacki Jill Nowacki started her career with credit unions in 2001.

Govt wants traditional markets to operate with physical-distancing measures

first_imgOn April 28, the Salatiga administration allowed sellers to open stalls along a major road in the city to ensure physical-distancing measures were followed.Sellers and officials set a distance of 1 meter between booths, with the location of each booth marked out with chalk.Bintaro Market in Demak, Central Java, and four other traditional markets in Tegal regency, which has imposed PSBB, followed suit soon after.”We urge regents and mayor to follow the Central Java administration’s steps by allowing vendors to sell their products along the road if the existing traditional markets are too crowded [to allow physical-distancing measures],” Suhanto said.He explained that traditional markets played a very important role in the people’s economy, especially as farmers and sellers depend for their livelihoods on such trading activities.”If we close [traditional markets], our economy will be affected for sure. So, it’s better to let them maintain operations by implementing physical-distancing measures,” he said, “This would allow sellers to keep their jobs, farmers to sell their products and economic activities continue.” (nal)Topics : Suhanto said they had previously received reports that many traditional markets had closed down operations ever since the government implemented large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) in several regions to stem the transmission of the virus.The ministry later conducted meetings with the House of Representatives and the COVID-19 task force, during which they agreed to support the operations of traditional markets “as long as they implement the standard health protocols.”Suhanto said traditional markets in Central Java were among the first in the country to implement physical-distancing measures between sellers and customers.Read also: Easing restrictions? Not so fast, experts say The Trade Ministry has issued a circular asking regents and mayors in Indonesia’s regions to support the operations of traditional markets while implementing strict health protocols to prevent the further spread of COVID-19.The ministry handed over on Friday disinfection chambers, hand-washing facilities, masks, staple foods and funds to Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo to support the implementation of physical-distancing measures in traditional markets in the region.”In the circular, we’ve asked regional leaders to distribute the aid and staple food commodities specifically to traditional markets,” said Suhanto, the ministry’s domestic trade director general.last_img read more

Australia closes state border for first time in 100 years to halt coronavirus

first_imgThe state reported 127 new COVID-19 infections overnight, its biggest one-day spike since the pandemic began. It also reported one death, the first nationally in more than two weeks, taking the country’s total tally to 105.”It is the smart call, the right call at this time, given the significant challenges we face in containing this virus,” Andrews told reporters in Melbourne as he announced the border closure.The closure will, however, likely be a blow to Australia’s economic recovery as it heads into its first recession in nearly three decades.Andrews said the decision to close the border, effective from 11.59 p.m. local time on Tuesday, was made jointly with Prime Minister Scott Morrison and NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian. Victoria’s only other internal border, with South Australia state, is already closed.Australia has fared better than many countries in the coronavirus pandemic, with just short of 8,500 cases so far, but the Melbourne outbreak has raised alarm bells. The country has reported an average of 109 cases daily over the past week, compared with an average of just 9 cases daily over the first week of June. The border between Australia’s two most populous states will close from Tuesday for an indefinite period, Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews said on Monday, following an outbreak of the coronavirus in his state.The decision marks the first time the border with neighboring New South Wales has been shut in 100 years – officials last blocked movement between the two states in 1919 during the Spanish flu pandemic.The number of COVID-19 cases in Melbourne, Victoria’s capital, has surged in recent days, prompting authorities to enforce strict social-distancing orders in 30 suburbs and put nine public housing towers into complete lockdown.

UN chief to world leaders: ‘Inequality starts at the top’

first_imgUN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Saturday accused world powers of ignoring inequality in global institutions, but said the coronavirus pandemic has created a “generational opportunity” to build a more equal, sustainable world.Delivering the annual lecture for the Nelson Mandela Foundation via internet, Guterres pushed for a so-called New Global Deal to ensure power, wealth and opportunity are shared more broadly and fairly at the international level.”The nations that came out on top more than seven decades ago have refused to contemplate the reforms needed to change power relations in international institutions,” Guterres said. “The composition and voting rights in the United Nations Security Council and the boards of the Bretton Woods system are a case in point.” “Because while we are all floating on the same sea, it’s clear that some are in superyachts while others are clinging to the floating debris,” said Guterres, a former Socialist prime minister of Portugal.The coronavirus has infected more than 14 million people and there have been nearly 600,000 known deaths worldwide, according to a Reuters tally. The UN has appealed for $10.3 billion to help poor states, but has received only $1.7 billion.Guterres said rich countries have “failed to deliver the support needed to help the developing world” and that the pandemic has “brought home the tragic disconnect between self-interest and the common interest; and the huge gaps in governance structures and ethical frameworks.”He said a changing world needs new social protection policies with safety nets including universal health coverage and the possibility of a universal basic income.Guterres concluded: “Now is the time for global leaders to decide: Will we succumb to chaos, division and inequality? Or will we right the wrongs of the past and move forward together, for the good of all?”  Topics :center_img “Inequality starts at the top: in global institutions. Addressing inequality must start by reforming them,” he added.The Bretton Woods system includes the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.He said the pandemic has revealed, like an x-ray, “fractures in the fragile skeleton of the societies we have built.””It is exposing fallacies and falsehoods everywhere: the lie that free markets can deliver healthcare for all; the fiction that unpaid care work is not work; the delusion that we live in a post-racist world; the myth that we are all in the same boat,” said Guterres during the virtual lecture.last_img read more

Shakhtar Donetsk 2 – 1 Chelsea

first_imgChelsea’s hopes of defending their Champions League crown suffered a setback in Donetsk as Shakhtar dominated a firecracker of a match.With John Terry back captaining the side, Chelsea were well beaten thanks to goals from two Brazilians.Alex Teixeira poked home after three minutes before Fernandinho doubled Shakhtar’s lead in the second half.Oscar thumped in a late consolation for Chelsea, who would have lost more heavily but for goalkeeper Petr Cech.The defeat, Roberto Di Matteo’s first in the Champions League, means English teams have now failed to win in Donetsk in four attempts and leaves Chelsea with a less than straightforward path to the last 16.The failure of Juventus to beat Nordsjaelland in Denmark was the only saving grace, but Shakhtar are now firmly in control of Group E. Defeat capped a week of a distraction and disruption at Stamford Bridge. But at the final whistle Terry’s return was nothing more than a footnote, as he led Chelsea out for the first time since accepting a four-match ban for racially abusing Anton Ferdinand a year to the day since the pair exchanged those infamous words.Chelsea saw this as an opportunity to draw a line under the controversy but Shakhtar’s formidable record could not be ignored. The Ukrainian champions came into the game unbeaten in 11 months on the back of a record 21 consecutive league matches without a loss and having scored in every game in that run.They provided a perfect demonstration of just why inside three minutes as Chelsea were caught cold.Luiz Adriano controlled a quickly taken throw-in on his chest, surged beyond David Luiz and shot hard and low at goal, only for Terry to block. The ball rebounded kindly to Teixeira, who kept calm to roll a low shot through the legs of Ashley Cole and across the advancing Cech into the bottom corner.Shakhtar were tremendous throughout, shredding the Chelsea defence time and again – they pressed and ran, created and scored. The intensity of their football was embodied by the magnificent Willian, who only added to his burgeoning reputation with this dynamic display. The Brazilian played with pace and intelligence, attacked with gusto and controlled the play with his trickery and precise passing. On three occasions he created shooting opportunities, with a drop of the shoulder and twinkle of the toes. He created openings too, feeding Darijo Srna whose goal-bound shot was blocked by Terry. Cech was keeping Chelsea in the tie as half-time approached. First he needed to be at full stretch to tip Henrik Mkhitaryan’s fierce shot over, before diving low to his left to somehow deny Tomas Hubschman after a goalmouth scramble from a corner.Chelsea were always a threat, however, even after Frank Lampard limped off with an injury after 18 minutes to be replaced by Eden Hazard. The best of their opportunities fell to Torres, but on each occasion the Spaniard was denied either by goalkeeper Andriy Pyatov or saw a shot smothered by the Shakhtar defence.The only consolation for Chelsea was that they remained in touch at 1-0. But not for long.With Chelsea pushing on in search of an equaliser, Shakhtar landed a decisive blow. Fernandinho dispossessed Hazard in the centre circle, Adriano gathered it up, broke forward and played the ball sideways to Fernandinho who finished emphatically with a low shot that flashed across Cech and into the far corner. Chelsea improved after the goal, with Hazard going close with a shot that was well-saved by Pyatov. But Shakhtar always looked more likely to score.Fernandinho might have scored his second after a neat exchange with Willian, while Cech denied Mkhitaryan with another fine save. Hubschman had perhaps the best chance of the second half, but failed to make contact when the ball fell to him four yards from goal.As it was, Oscar snatched a late consolation for Chelsea, turning in a low cross after a surging run from Branislav Ivanovic, but the damage was done.last_img read more
