| August 24, 2016

In my last post I shared some broad insights on the New York City job market for the balance of 2016 and beyond that were shared by Jim Brown of the NYS Department of Labor. Here are some of his specific insights and suggestions. So where is all this job growth he said NYC was experiencing? The two sectors demonstrating the strongest growth, and the strongest potential to keep growing, are healthcare and academia. So you’re thinking, “That’s great. I’m not a doctor or a professor.” You don’t have to be. Universities and hospital systems are big businesses! They need every function that any other big business needs: IT, marketing, purchasing, accounting, professional services and facilities staff. And when I say facilities, I don’t mean janitors. Mr. Brown clarified that most of those kinds of jobs, security, maintenance and cafeteria have been jobbed out to contractors. And those contracts are bid out every couple of years so he said that if you’re a professional services or property management expert there are organizations that may be looking for what you have to offer even if it’s an industry with which you’ve had little contact. Real estate is big business in NYC (as every real New Yorker knows!) and property management is a field that will call on all your management, budgeting and resource coordination skills.

As an educational leader, you’re working hard to establish at-home learning and anticipate the new normal. But there are some things you don’t need to figure out on your own.

Lean relates to reducing waste of any form in any industry. For the logistics industry, that’s the waste of materials and products, order processing, and employee time as well as loss of sales throughout the supply chain, but is there a way to apply lean principles to your home life? We promise not to turn this blog into some Pinterest lifestyle content, but a recent conversation amongst some colleagues sparked an idea. Everyone at Taylor has practiced the art of the lean business approach – and for a good reason. It helps companies decrease costs and cultivate leadership qualities in team members.
