    “I don’t know if we’re going to take existing jobs and expand their duties or if we’ll create new jobs, but it’s going to change our workforce. In the past, if you had a high school education and could learn some technical skills, that was enough to work for us. But now we want an Associate’s degree or equivalent military experience – and that will be the minimum hiring requirement starting this year.”Larry Fuller, director of human resourcesCenterPoint Energy, Houston, Texasinterviewed Feb. 5, 2010, for Working Texas Style book

    slide26

    “A lot of students make the mistake of not making mistakes.Or they don’t take hard classes, that’s a mistake. Get out there and learn. You’ll probably make mistakes along the way. Find what you love.” Michael DellCEO of Dell Inc. in Round Rockinterviewed August 12, 2010, for Working Texas Style book

    “Years ago we hired people from the neck down. We wanted strong backs. Now we hire people from the neck up. Only a few years ago we hired people and gave them a shovel and a pipe wrench and told them these were the tools that would make them successful. Now we hire people and give them a volt meter and a computer and tell them these are the tools that will make them successful. It’s a different industry now.”Greg Yoxsimer, human resources partner,Chevron Oil & Gas, Midland, TexasInterviewed Sept. 23, 2009, for Working Texas Style book

    Key Trends for Texas employers are seeing

    • 4 Generations at same job place
    • Baby Boomers may never retire yet most Texas workers over 50 in:
      • Oil
      • Natural gas
      • Nuclear
      • Utilities
      • State government
    • Generation X workers dominating
    • More Hispanic-American, more Asian-American, more college degreed, more women
    • Skill mismatch as employers are segmenting the tasks of jobs in order to shift away some tasks and blending other tasks to create new jobs
    • Concern about worker obesity costs
    slide37

    “This is the topic companies in Texas are talking about. Knowledge transfer is about getting people in an organization who know how things really get done and getting them together to simply talk about that with younger workers. It sounds simple, but it’s hard to do in most organizations. You’re paid to complete a task, not to communicate habits to co-workers. ”Wendy Boswell, management professor and directorof the Center for Human Resource Management atTexas A&M Universityinterviewed Dec. 8, 2009, for Working Texas Style book

    slide39
    “We need to ask people three questions.What do you like?What are you good at?And how are you going to add value in the economy?”

    “There’s not one specific thing or skill people have to have to work for us. But I can tell you why we fire people: soft skills. We hire for hard skills. We fire for soft skills. The ability to interact and communicate with others or behave ethically and take responsibility for things tends to be where people tend to break down.”
