Cancer Fighters Charitable Gift Annuity Program

Why should you consider the Cancer Fighters Annuity Program?

It is Direct and Uncomplicated You simply transfer cash or securities to the Institute in exchange for our written agreement to pay you, or you and another beneficiary, a specified annuity payment for as long as you live.

It is Safe and Secure Our commitment to pay a lifetime annuity to you or you and another beneficiary is backed by a special reserve fund as well as by all the assets of the Institute.

It is Tremendously Important Your participation will bring us all closer to the day when cancer is no longer such a terrible threat to our society.

The Gift That Gives Back

Wes Hauck was a dear friend of AICR and a firm believer. read more

A gift annuity can offer substantial tax advantages. Because your gift eventually will be used to fund important cancer education and research programs, you can immediately deduct a portion of your gift as a charitable contribution on your income tax return.

With a gift annuity, you will receive a payment each year for the rest of your life. And in most cases the annuity income will be favorably taxed and will be much higher than you could receive from a certificate of deposit, money market account or similar investment.

An immediate payment gift annuity can begin at age 60 or older; a deferred annuity can be established beginning at age 50. Use our gift planning calculator above to learn more about how a Cancer Fighters Annuity can benefit you and the fight against cancer. Or, you may request a more detailed gift annuity proposal from the experts on our planned giving staff.

We are ready to work with you or your financial advisor. Our staff can provide detailed information about the various types of planned gifts, and will work with you to help create the planned gift that works for you.

Is a Master – s in Human Resource Management a Good Choice? #human #resource

Master’s in Human Resource Management: Should I Do It?

A business is only as good as its people.

And when it comes to the business of people, it was, is and will continue to be the domain and responsibility of human resource professionals.

Although once relegated to an administrative function focused on mere hiring and firing, the human resources (HR) profession has since evolved. Now, HR pros get to take on a deeper, more significant role and take their rightful place at the leadership table.

In fact, today’s advanced human resources profession is all about strategic HR leadership.

From the complexity of labor relations, to benefits plans, to cross-cultural differences, to global workplace environments, anyone working in the human resources field needs to be well prepared, educated and trained.

So if you enjoy working with others, if you like being involved in improving things, and if you want to ensure that the best people are in the right jobs to help them and the organization succeed, then the study of human resources through a master of science in Human Resource Management could be the right degree for you .

A human resources management degree should focus on courses and learning objectives that specifically relate to helping you acquire knowledge and grow in of these key drivers so you can become a strategic partner who helps advance your organization’s mission:

  • Compensation Benefits
  • Employee Relations
  • Leadership Management
  • Organizational Change
  • Recruiting Candidate Selection
  • Training Development

Going back to school to get your master’s is a big investment of time and money. So before you decide, consider these five reasons why earning your Master of Science in Human Resource Management (MSHRM ) may be right for you:

  1. Improve your ability to recruit and retain a quality workforce.

The best companies don’t become the best by accident. It takes work. It takes focus. It takes people. More importantly, it takes having the right people with the right abilities in the right jobs, working effectively with others to advance company objectives.

So whether you take on-campus classes or online courses at an accredited university like Franklin, your MSHRM should provide you with key strategies for learning how to:

  • Identify what skills companies require
  • Search for and find people with the necessary skills
  • Recruit top talent
  • Retain high-performing employees
  1. Boost earning potential and advance your career.

An MSHRM degree can equip you with advanced skills that are valuable to a variety of industries and organizations. In fact, the demand for HRM professionals is good – and growing.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that employment of human resources managers will grow 13 percent through the year 2022.

And as new companies form and organizations expand their operations, many more than that will need human resources professionals to implement, administer, oversee and grow their programs.

In addition, wages for individuals with a master’s degree in human resource management are very competitive, with the median average wage coming in at nearly six figures for 2015. Top talent earns even more, earning more than $173,000 annually (according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics).

Occupational titles for master’s in HR management grads include:

  • Chief Learning Officer
  • Compensation Benefits Manager
  • Compensation, Benefits Job Analysis Specialist
  • HR Practice Leader
  • Human Resources Manager or Director
  • Industrial Relations Director
  • Labor Relations Consultant or Manager
  • Learning Development Director
  • Organizational Development Director or Consultant
  • Program Administrator or Evaluator
  • Training Development Manager or Facilitator
  • VP of Human Resources

Looking to go even further? Then consider a degree program that also helps you prepare for additional certifications, such as PHR®, Professional in Human Resources and SPHR®, Senior Professional in Human Resources.

  1. Influence your organization’s strategic decision making.

In a very competitive business environment (as most of it is, today), organizations must innovate, grow and expand to build and maintain momentum. That means that the human resources management function is essential to the business of business.

From diversity and inclusion management, to management and labor, to factors affecting human behavior, professionals in human resource management fill critical roles at the highest levels.

An executive and professional education can help you help your organization examine short- and long-term goals to ensure proper planning, including identifying, hiring and training top talent for key positions.

Plus, you’ll be better prepared to advise on such key issues as:

  • Compensation Benefits
  • Employee Labor Relations
  • Human Resources Development
  • Strategic Management
  • Workforce Planning Employment
  1. Create and implement innovative solutions that enhance employee motivation, retention and productivity.

Great companies are purposefully populated with employees and managers who are engaged and driven to succeed.

From management processes and specialized skills, to management strategies and organizational development, to human capital management and policy, the human resource management professional plays an important role in keeping a hand on the pulse of the company and ensuring a vibrant, motivated workforce.

And a master’s degree can help prepare you to better develop, execute and continually improve global people strategies, human resource systems and programs.

Employees should be free to focus on providing the best possible goods, products and services. Human resource management professionals, therefore, should be focused on supporting employees in their work.

By providing effective benefits, such health and dental insurance, vacation time, sick leave and a safe working environment. In addition, human resources professionals are charged with making sure the workplace is well managed, and that all employees are given the personal and legal respect and care they deserve.

ERP 101 | The ERP Go To Guide

The ERP 101 Go To Guide provides the basis and baseline for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) research, reviews and recommendations.

Table of Contents

  • ERP Defined
  • ERP History
  • ERP Benefits
  • ERP Pitfalls
  • ERP Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
  • ERP Implementation Approaches
  • Top ERP Implementation Failure Factors
  • The Future of ERP

ERP Defined

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software applications act as the central company-wide information system. ERP systems integrate all of an organization’s departments, divisions, lines of business and geographical locations into a single, shared, unified and enterprise-wide information system.

In order to bind this organizational definition with the plethora of new and expanding commercial ERP software applications, in the early 1990’s some of the more notable analyst firms proposed a more quantifiable software definition that continues to be frequently referenced. This definition advocates that for a business software application to be a true ERP software application, the software must include the five integrated business software suites of:

  • Financial or accounting software | General ledger, Cash Management, Accounts Payable, Account Receivable and Fixed Assets
  • Distribution or supply chain management software | Procurement, sales order, e-commerce, inventory management, product configurator, supply chain planning, supplier management and claims processing.
  • Manufacturing software | Bill of materials, work orders, engineering, capacity planning, capacity scheduling, quality control, requirements planning, manufacturing flow
  • Human resources and payroll software | HR management, payroll, employee self service, time and attendance, commissions calculations, benefits administration
  • Customer relationship management (CRM) software | sales force automation (SFA), marketing, customer support, call center

To many of the industry pundits, only when a business application includes the above five core suites in an integrated fashion and leveraging a single data repository (relational database) is the true ERP software definition achieved and the best opportunity to realize the benefits of ERP software possible.
