CHOC Children’s Mark Steiman Talks Workforce Development with OCBC Committees

On Wednesday, April 17, OCBC’s Workforce Development Committee and Community College Working Group hosted Mark Steiman, Executive Director of Human Resources for CHOC Children’s.

In back-to-back meetings with these groups, Mark provided insightful information on the CHOC Children’s culture, and how he identifies talent that either matches or elevates that culture. With CHOC Children’s reputation as a highly coveted employer, Mr. Steiman discussed how he seeks candidates who are very capable on the hard skills, and are also equally strong in leadership and problem-solving skills which further development.

OCBC, in conjunction with JP Morgan Chase, is rolling out its study of the healthcare cluster in Orange County. Having Mr. Steiman, was impeccable timing as a lead in to this study. Read More. For more information, contact Jesse Ben-Ron, OCBC’s Director of Workforce and Economic Development.

With the Community College Working Group, Mr. Steiman got straight to the point with these community college leaders. With nearly 30 years of leadership experience, Mr. Steiman discussed the need for young adults to become better at meeting management and participation, project leadership, and building better relationships within an organization.

During the CCWG meeting, OCBC also had the pleasure of hearing from Steve Linthicum, Orange County’s Information and Communications Technology Deputy Sector Navigator for the California Community College System. Steve informed the group that over 10 thousand cybersecurity jobs are left unfilled in the LA/OC region. These are good paying and outsource resistant jobs, due to the fact that each country has its own regulatory framework.

Mr. Linthicum did applaud Orange County for being very supportive of Cybersecurity education, with Cypress and Coastline College being two of only three community colleges designated as a Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense from the Department of Homeland Security and National Security Agency.
