Walsh College Website Earns Marcom Award

The redesigned Walsh College website, launched in July 2014, has received a 2014 Platinum Marcom Award for website design.

The Marcom Awards are an international competition that receive nearly 6,000 entries each year. It is one of the largest creative competitions of its kind. Marcom rewards the best entrants in terms of concept, writing, and design of print, visual, audio, and web materials and programs.

The idea for Walsh’s new website was developed early last year. The decision stemmed from the desire to create a more modern feel and design while improving the experience for all users—including prospective and current students, alumni, staff, and faculty.

Walsh College’s ongoing partnership with Element5, a cutting-edge web design and digital marketing agency in metropolitan Detroit, opened the opportunity to begin a website redesign. Throughout the project, the goal was to identify areas of improvement to the site’s problems and solutions to fix them.

“Developing a responsive website wasn’t even on our radar. Element5 identified this as an area where the College’s web presence was lacking and helped us understand why it was crucial to fix it,” said Brenda Meller, Assistant Vice President of Marketing at Walsh College.

“They managed the entire project from planning to launch, and their prompt organization throughout helped us meet our target date of completion. I was extremely pleased with the entire process and outcome of the new Walsh College website, and the improved site performance metrics reinforce that success.”

In the research and testing phase, Element5 interviewed Walsh’s staff and faculty to identify problem areas, designed new wireframes based on the findings and feedback, and created interactive wireframes to allow for on-site testing with current and potential students.

Element5 determined key findings with thorough research that made a tremendous impact on the redesigned site’s success. Following the new site’s launch, site errors declined, usability reached an all-time high and overall traffic increased substantially. A few key metrics showing the vast improvement included a 44 percent increase in new users to the site, 21.65 percent increase in sessions, and 24.49 percent increase in overall goal conversions.

Walsh College Becomes First Private Michigan College to Support “8 Keys to Veterans’ Success” for Student Veterans

Walsh College is the first private Michigan college to become an official signatory to the “8 Keys to Veterans’ Success,” a set of specific strategies that colleges and universities can implement to support educational success for student veterans of the armed forces.

The strategies include practices involving trust, leadership support, advice, coordination of campus efforts, collaboration with service providers, data tracking, professional development,
and sustainability.

Walsh joins hundreds of educational institutions nationally as signatories to the program, backed by the Department of Education and the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The eight keys work in tandem with the “Principles of Excellence,” an executive order from the White House. The principles require participating schools to have certain policies and programs in place to support veterans.

“Our signing of the ‘8 Keys to Veterans’ Success’ reinforces Walsh College’s commitment to veterans,” said Stephanie W. Bergeron, president and CEO, Walsh College.

“Veterans enrich Walsh College’s already strong business programs with their unique experiences and viewpoints, which build the educational experience for all of our students. The credentials they bring are also valued by employers and serve as key indicators of future career success,” she added.

The “8 Keys to Veterans’ Success” can aid veterans in their efforts to afford and complete college degrees, certificates, industry-recognized credentials, or licenses in preparation for jobs in high-growth sectors of the economy.

G.I. Jobs magazine named Walsh College a “Military Friendly School” for 2014, making it the fifth consecutive year that Walsh has been recognized for this achievement.

Walsh received recognition earlier this year from Military Times magazine as one of 64 select national institutions ranked as a “Best for Vets Business College,” which provide high levels of service for active-duty and veteran military men and women.

The selection process considered the school’s culture, student support, academic outcomes and quality, academic policies, and cost.

Registration for fall classes at Walsh is underway through Tuesday, Sept. 30. For more information, visit www.walshcollege.edu.

Real World Instructors Teach Walsh PHR/SPHR Exam Prep Program: Professional in Human Resources Certification prep begins this month at Walsh College

Bringing the real world into the classroom has been the hallmark of a Walsh College business education for more than 90 years. Rebecca Davies and Tina Marie Wohlfield are applying that practice to the field of human resources as instructors for the Professional in Human Resources Certification and Senior Professional in Human Resources (PHR/SPHR) Exam Preparation Program at Walsh.

Walsh is offering the PHR/SPHR Exam Prep course this fall at the Novi campus. Classes will be held on Wednesdays from 6-10 p.m. for nine weeks starting September 24. Tuition is $1,495 with a $200 discount for early registration. More information can be found online: www.walshcollege.edu/professional_development/certifications/phrexamprep.

Both Wohlfield and Davies agree that everyone learns from the classroom experience. “Along with the books and online tests and tools,” says Wohlfield, “we learn from each other in our class discussions. I get so energized by the students, sometimes I find it hard to get to sleep on the nights I teach.”

By day, Wohlfield is Compliance/Human Resources Consultant at Arthur J. Gallagher & Co., a multi-national, multi-billion dollar insurance brokerage and risk management services firm. She is also a Walsh College adjunct assistant professor teaching Total Compensation in the MBA program. Wohlfield holds an MBA from Walsh College and is certified as a Senior Human Resources Professional.

Having spent much of her career in a senior HR generalist/management role, Wohlfield’s background gives her special kinship with Walsh PHR/SPHR students who typically work small to mid-size firms. “My prior career experiences exposed me to just about every possible HR responsibility and issue; everything from recruiting to onboarding to performance reviews to problem employees and termination. I can relate to the students in just about every HR situation.”

Team-teaching the program, Wohlfield and Davies split the sessions into their specialty areas – Davies taking the legal, compliance, and regulations sections. She is an attorney practicing employment law at Butzel Long and concentrates her practice primarily in the areas of employment law and commercial litigation. She represents employers in federal and state court litigation and before state and federal administrative agencies.

“It’s important for our students to understand the reasons behind the laws so they can help their employers develop policies and procedures to keep them out of court,” says Davies. “It’s also the toughest parts of the PHR/SPHR exams,”she adds since she recently took the SPHR exam herself to become certified

“The reasons why HR people should come to Walsh to prepare for the PHR/SPHR exams are because the books and online tools provided by SHRM are supplemented with real-world discussion; the entire class is engaged since they are all working in the field; and we keep in touch with a variety of ongoing professional education opportunities,” concludes Davies.
