The Federal Reserve Board on Friday said it is forming an advisory council representing a broad group of insured community depository institutions.

The Community Depository Institutions Advisory Council (CDIAC) will provide input to the board on the economy, lending conditions, and other issues. Members will be selected from representatives of banks, thrift institutions, and credit unions serving on newly created local advisory councils at the 12 Federal Reserve Banks.

One member of each of the Reserve Bank councils will be selected by the board to serve on the CDIAC, which will meet twice a year with the Federal Reserve Board in Washington.

The CDIAC will replace the Thrift Institutions Advisory Council, which has provided the board with useful information from the perspective of thrift institutions and credit unions since 1981.

In addition to representatives from thrift institutions and credit unions, the CDIAC will include people from community banks with different charters and regulators including state-chartered banks that are members of the Federal Reserve System, state-chartered nonmember banks, and nationally chartered banks.

This will provide views from the broad array of community depository institutions that operate in local markets across the country.

The Reserve Bank advisory councils are expected to begin meeting in early 2011 with meetings of the CDIAC to follow later in the year.

Great article! Unfortunately, most employees don’t feel valued or appreciated by their supervisors or employers. In fact, research has shown that the predominant reason team members quit their jobs is because they don’t feel valued. This is in spite of the fact that employee recognition programs have proliferated in the workplace – over 90% of all organizations in the U.S. has some form of employee recognition activities in place. But most employee recognition programs are viewed with skepticism and cynicism – because they aren’t viewed as being genuine in their communication of appreciation. Getting the “employee of the month” award, receiving a certificate of recognition, or a “Way to go, team!” email just don’t get the job done. How do you communicate authentic appreciation? We have found people have different ways that they want to be shown appreciation, and if you don’t communicate in the language of appreciation important to them, you essentially “miss the mark”. Additionally, employees need to receive recognition more than once a year at their performance review. Otherwise, they view the praise as “going through the motions”. A third component of authentic appreciation is that the communication has to be about them personally – not the department, not their group, but something they did. Finally, they have to believe that you mean what you say. How you treat them has to match the words you use. If you are not sure how your team members want to be shown appreciation, the Motivating By Appreciation Inventory (www.appreciationatwork.com/assess) will identify the language of appreciation and specific actions preferred by each employee. You then can create a group profile for your team, so everyone knows how to encourage one another. Remember, employees want to know that they are valued for what they contribute to the success of the organization. And communicating authentic appreciation in the ways they desire it can make the difference between keeping your quality team members or having a negative work environment that everyone wants to leave.
