Welcome to ECG's monthly newsletter, providing insights and advice about all things HR!
August 2014

Greetings from ECG!

We hope you're enjoying the summer months and are staying cool despite the heat! It has been another busy month at ECG, including some work in the community and developing our new employee engagement surveys.

ECG giving back to the community 

This month, ECG joined forces with Community Partners to provide non-profit entities working with another community organization, First 5 LA, an HR strategic session. This afternoon session included tips on behavioral based interviewing, culture change, performance management, and provided the attendees with overall HR guidance and recommendations. 

First 5 LA was established in 1998 in an effort to fund health, safety and early education programs for children prenatal to age 5.  They are a non-profit organization,  funded through Proposition 10.  First 5 LA’s core values are “Families”, “Communities”, “Results”, “Learning” and “Advocacy”. If you would like to get involved with giving back to the community, and helping First 5 LA, or Community Partners, please visit www.first5la.org or www.CommunityPartners.org.
