Human Resources, Employment Culture and Big News from Aureon HR

Strap in as we cover lots of ground in the coming minutes. We sit down with Ned Flynn from Aureon HR, a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) and the first question is, "Tell us what Aureon HR...does." We think you'll be impressed with how a PEO helps businesses grow 7% faster... We move from there into a recent survey by Robert Half that indicated 54% of employees (the highest in the nation) in the Greater Des Moines Metro would leave their jobs because of a lack of wage growth, poor work culture or being under appreciated. We talk about System Organization Controls (SOC) and what that means for clients of Aureon and some big news regarding the future of Aureon and a company called Oasis Outsoursing. So much here you may have to listen twice.

Immigration and the Economy

Every day we hear about the lack of talent to fill thousands of jobs across the country. Here we sit down with Kate Brick and Richard Andre from the non-partisan New American Economy and talk about the issue and a report just released that points to the need of a new pool of workers in not only the Des Moines Metro but across Iowa. Case in point, Iowa is currently home to more than 160,000 immigrants—a population larger than the city of Cedar Rapids. Between 2010 and 2016, Iowa’s foreign-born population grew by more than 15.2 percent an important statistic given the low birth rate in the state.  In addition we talk about the economic impact that can be attained...or missed.

Livable Communities - Grand Avenue in Des Moines with AARP - Iowa

We're on site with Brad Anderson from AARP-Iowa and Layne Fergusen from Team Better Block as they and dozens of volunteers transform a block of Grand Avenue in the East Village of Des Moines.

And, the economic development opportunities are astounding. You've heard Jason Roberts talk about Build a Better Block early this year. Here we dive deeper.  Listen in.
