Les absents (aux rendez-vous) ont tort

Tue, 2016-05-03 13:44

Lorsque je faisais mes premiers stages de médecine à l'hôpital, il y a plus de quinze ans, j'avais été surpris et indigné de constater que des rendez-vous de patients étaient programmés à la même heure ou à des intervalles de 15 minutes ou moins, alors que les consultations pouvaient durer en moyenne 20 à 25 minutes. On m'en avait expliqué la raison : c'était pour compenser le fait que, chaque jour, plusieurs patients ne se présentaient pas à leur rendez-vous ou l'annulaient in extremis.

Today the millennial generation, which comprises close to 90M people in NA, as well as many baby boomers, is demanding a change in the manner in which they interact with the world around them. The money they spend has to have an added benefit to their surroundings and exemplify a set of core values, which respect the vision of the world they wish to live in and help mold. There is a movement to return to the experience of community, both physical, and virtual, where shared values will be the common bond.

Industry-leading tech companies recruit heavily from the most selective colleges and universities in the U.S., so is it any wonder that their employees lack diversity? The top 150 higher-ed institutions would have to recruit an additional 50,000 black students and 58,0000 Hispanic students each year if they want their student bodies to reflect the American population, according to research from the Posse Foundation, a New York-based organization that works to improve diversity on campus.
