One of the best strategies for retaining talent is ensuring that the right candidate is placed in the best position. Several studies (The Saratoga Institute, the Society for Human Resource Management, and Hewitt Associates) estimate the cost of replacing talent at approximately 1.5 times the annual salary of the job opening. Hiring and Onboarding Talent addresses a methodology for hiring and retaining talent at UM. It gives an overview of the hiring process that includes everything from behavioral interviewing to onboarding, enabling leaders to hire employees who will contribute to a stable and high-performing team. Participants will focus on identifying talent needs, developing techniques to predict success based on past performance, creating an interview plan and peer interviewing process, developing a plan for onboarding, and retaining new talent.

Department of Art and Art History to present exhibition by Ricardo Estanislao Zulueta

Nov ’10Nov

The Department of Art and Art History in UM’s College of Arts and Sciences will present a solo exhibition by Ricardo Estanislao Zulueta from November 2-28 at Wynwood Project Space, 2200-A NW 2nd Avenue, Miami. An opening reception will be held Saturday, November 13 from 6 to 10 p.m.

The exhibition features Zulueta’s impressive digital performance categorization project of more than 35 images addressing the social practice of consumerism in an era of globalization.

Zulueta’s interdisciplinary exhibition, “Domesticated Homosapiens in Traditional Costume Circa Twenty-First Century,” includes a diverse cross section of participants typically marginalized from mainstream advertising that Zulueta directs in order to create a digital record of a pseudo anthropological ethnography study. The concept deals with expanding the tradition of photographic categorization projects of the past by documenting relevant social practice today.

Zulueta has exhibited extensively nationally and internationally at such venues as the International Center for Photography, Smithsonian Institution, and the Centro Reina Sofia in Madrid. He has been awarded fellowships from the New York Foundation for the Arts, Cintas Foundation, and National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts.

For more information regarding the artist, visit www.ricardozulueta.com. A full schedule of exhibitions can be viewed at www.as.miami.edu/art. Wynwood Project Space is open from 6 to 10 p.m. every second Saturday of the month and by appointment. Admission is free.
