Show Topic:

On this week’s episode of HR Power Hour. It’s easy to say that your work environment is inclusive, but what does it take to attract and retain female leaders?
Join Tawny as she speaks to April Paradis, HR Specialist at Bank of America about the work that Bank of America is doing to invest in women.
April will discuss the work that Bank of America does in focusing on retention and development while simultaneously understanding that an employee’s needs do not end when they walk out the door.
In understanding the importance in investing in female customers, through their work with the Cornell Women’s Institute, to the programs available for employees, hear how Bank of America engages female employees through their child care and elder care reimbursement programs, tuition assistance programs, and parental leave programs.
That’s on the next HR Power Hour.
