Connectors May Help Reduce Employee Turnover, According to Gies College of Business Study

Connectors can help improve the work experience and ultimately reduce turnover when strategically hired and placed in certain group settings
Press Release – updated: Dec 18, 2019 08:00 EST

CHAMPAIGN, Ill., December 18, 2019 (Newswire.com) – Everyone knows people who are fun to be around. They’re outgoing, positive and seem to make everyone around them better. Researchers call them “connectors,” and a new study suggests they can help improve the work experience and ultimately reduce turnover when strategically hired and placed in certain group settings. And that effect is magnified in groups where members may feel isolated because of gender, race, ethnicity or other distinguishing characteristics.
In their paper “Deploying ‘connectors’: A control to manage employee turnover intentions?”, University of Illinois researcher Kevin Jackson and his co-authors examined the role of connectors and the impact they can have when deployed as a form of personnel control. They found that groups that included a connector reported a more positive experience, group members had a stronger desire to remain part of that team, relative to those that did not include a connector.
“Workforce diversity is increasing and work groups are becoming more common in today’s business environment, so managers everywhere are looking for the best ways to improve efficiency and reduce unwanted turnover,” said Kevin Jackson, associate dean of undergraduate affairs at Gies College of Business. “This study provides some pretty convincing evidence that connectors can improve employee performance and reduce their desire to leave for another organization.”
For the study, participants filled out a survey that was used to determine if they possessed the characteristics of a connector. Once those connectors were identified, the participants were divided into groups consisting of three to five members. Connectors were placed in some groups, while others had no connector. The groups were then asked to complete an open-ended task, brainstorming cartoon captions. After the task was complete, participants filled out a follow-up survey gauging their overall impression of the group experience and whether they desired to remain in that group.
“What we found is that groups containing a connector reported a more positive group experience and showed less of a desire to leave the group. This result, though, was driven by group members who were demographically unique,” said Jackson. “Those group members who were at risk of feeling isolated because of their race or gender benefited the most from these connectors. They truly felt like they were part of a cohesive team.”
Jackson believes these results have important implications for organizations of all types, from sports teams to corporate environments. “Organizations are vying for top talent, and organizations that are able to retain that top talent have a competitive advantage,” he said. “Deploying existing connectors or hiring new ones, and strategically placing them into the right group settings can be an extremely valuable form of personnel control. These connectors can set the tone for effective collaboration and ultimately help organizations retain their best employees.”

WILMINGTON, Mass. (PRWEB) December 10, 2019
Heilind Electronics, a leading global distributor of electronic components and authorized distributor for Molex, is now stocking the Molex Mirror Mezz connector system. Offering data rates of up to 56 Gbps per differential pair, this solution lowers application costs with stackable mating and is ideal for space-constrained servers, networking and telecommunications equipment — especially for companies adopting OCP hardware.
The Molex Mirror Mezz high-speed mezzanine system features a stitched ball grid array (BGA), which reduces lead times and allows for a simplified product matrix. In addition, an intricately designed terminal structure provides numerous mechanical strengths and cutting-edge electrical features to facilitate high data rates.
A key benefit of these self-mating, hermaphroditic Mirror Mezz connectors is that they easily achieve a mated stack height that meets an application’s requirements. This is especially important for engineers facing design-in challenges due to shrinking real estate. Various combinations of the 2.50 and 5.50 mm connectors result in 11.00, 8.00 or 5.00 mm mated stack heights. Offering a 1 A maximum current per contact, the connectors carry a maximum voltage 30 VAC and feature a dielectric withstanding (hipot) voltage of 500 VDC.

Panduit Connectors Third-Party Certified for Highest PoE Levels

“We saw where the PoE standard was heading and we sought third-party validation at that time to ensure our jacks would meet the new standard,” said Frank Straka, product line manager for copper and fiber connectivity at Panduit.

TINLEY PARK, Ill. (PRWEB) November 19, 2019
Panduit, a global leader in innovative electrical and network infrastructure solutions, meets the recently updated IEEE standards for the highest Power over Ethernet currents. In fact, while the standard itself is recently updated, Panduit’s certification to the higher loads has been in place since August 2016.
“We saw where the PoE standard was heading and we sought third-party validation at that time to ensure our jacks would meet the new standard,” said Frank Straka, product line manager for copper and fiber connectivity at Panduit. “We collaborated with the testing house to validate our jacks under the old standard, but at an elevated current load that corresponded to the new standard. Because we were already certified to those higher levels, our existing third-party certification was simply updated by the testing house when the standard was updated. So, we had this certification two and a half years before the standard was ratified.”
The certification covers arcing under Power over Ethernet loads, and provides assurance to users that carbon buildup will not degrade connector performance. Arcing occurs inside a jack, when a plug is disengaged from a jack that is carrying PoE and can cause carbon scoring at the point of disengagement. Because current levels are higher under the newest PoE standards, it can lead to more severe carbon scoring. Panduit jacks are engineered so that abrasion occurs as a plug is inserted, effectively cleaning the contacts from the carbon buildup.
Panduit has been a leader in developing the industry’s leading products to support Power over Ethernet, including copper cabling with advanced thermal properties to handle heat rise and jacks that are certified to the highest levels of PoE.
About Panduit: Since 1955, Panduit’s culture of curiosity and passion for problem solving have enabled more meaningful connections between companies’ business goals and their marketplace success. Panduit creates leading-edge physical, electrical, network infrastructure and AV solutions for enterprise-wide environments, from the data center to the telecom room, from the desktop to the plant floor. Headquartered in Tinley Park, Ill., USA and operating in 112 global locations, Panduit’s proven reputation for quality and technology leadership, coupled with a robust partner ecosystem, help support, sustain, and empower business growth in a connected world.
