Washington College, formerly Hesser College, today held its 113th
commencement ceremony celebrating the academic achievements of more than
500 graduates. The graduation took place at the Verizon Wireless Arena
As the keynote speaker, Lance J. Richards, Vice President, Innovation
for global workforce solutions provider Kelly Services, addressed the
students and described the shift from a knowledge economy to a
collaboration economy, requiring new skills and behaviors.
"In a knowledge economy, the only differentiator you have is, in fact,
knowledge," Mr. Richards told the graduates. "As a result, education has
become the critical, defining component to any economic infrastructure."
Richards has over 30 years of HR experience, with the last 20 years
focused on Global Human Resources. As a visiting professor at Sasi
Graduate School in Bangkok, he developed and teaches their MBA
coursework in Global Human Capital. He is co-author of The Leadership
Deficit and Don't Manage Me, #understandme. Richards' most
recent book Talentomics received acclaim for its review of the
economics of talent, and the metatrends shaping the world of work.
