Older workers dissatisfied with managers’ performance

first_img Previous Article Next Article Research shows the older the employee, the less well managed they think theyareOnly two out of five employees feel they are getting sufficient help tomanage their stress levels at work, and older workers are most critical ofmanagers’ skills. Research commissioned by the Industrial Society Learning and Development,part of outsourcing specialist Capita, asked 850 full-time and part-timeworkers what they thought about their immediate bosses’ management abilities. While 59 per cent rated their general line management skills positively,three out of five felt they were getting insufficient help with workplacestress. One in four (26 per cent) of full-time workers and almost one in five (19per cent) of part timers described their manager’s stress management skills as‘poor’ or ‘very poor’. According to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, stress isthe most common cause of long-term absence, with stress-related sick dayscosting British industry an estimated £7.1m a week. Younger people, said the study, generally had a more positive outlook thanthose in their later working years. And the older the employee, the lessgenerally well managed they thought they were. Christine Garner, managing director of Industrial Society Learning and Developmentsaid: “Businesses should be sensitive to the needs of their olderemployees, who seem to face increasing dissatisfaction with their bosses’general management skills as they get older.” www.islearning.co.uk Comments are closed.

What is an expert?

first_img Previous Article Next Article What is an expert?Shared from missc on 9 Dec 2014 in Personnel Today Read full article During our working lives, almost by default, we look at the long tenured staff members in our organisations with reverence. We see them as professionals to look up to, fountains of knowledge and information, given the years of service. Quite rightly so. In that time, they must have learned a fair amount about the industry in which they operate. But surely having 10, 15, 20 years of experience in an industry doesn’t constitute immediate ‘expert status’?In my opinion, it’s the breadth of experience you have in your chosen skill-set that will differentiate you. Let’s take the recruitment industry for example. Recruitment isn’t the type of industry that has one clear cut way to do things that’s considered “correct” and does not follow a specific formula or set of rules. Success in recruitment will come from tackling a range of recruitment challenges in your career and the way in which you handle them, along with the experience you gain from them. The length of time in an industry can of course ensure a certain depth of knowledge in one or a number of things and in my opinion, I would put a higher value in less depth of knowledge of 10 recruitment challenges learned over 20 years, than 20 years of experience facing one recruitment challenge.It’s the age old “1 year of experience 10 ways, or 10 years of experience 1 way” adage. I believe the most successful recruiters who can legitimately call themselves experts fall into the “1 year of experience 10 ways” group. We operate in an industry where our skill-set is not an exact science. It will be our adaptability and ability to be agile in our approach when grasping the intricacies of any given talent acquisition problem, (whether it’s internal or agency, large enterprise or SME, volume or not etc.) and offering expertise on efficient and effective ways to manage it based on previous experience, that will genuinely ensure the worthiness of the reverence you will receive.center_img Comments are closed.

No. 10 Utah Faces USC On Road For Friday Night Tilt

first_imgSeptember 16, 2019 /Sports News – Local No. 10 Utah Faces USC On Road For Friday Night Tilt Written by Tags: USC Trojans/Utah Utes FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailLOS ANGELES-Friday, the No. 10 (The Associated Press poll) and No. 11 (coaches’ poll) Utah Utes leave the Beehive State for the first time this season as they face fellow Pac-12 South foe USC for a tilt at the Los Angeles Coliseum.The Utes have won only once previously at USC in their history, prevailing over the Trojans 27-12 in 1916.Since joining the Pac-12 in 2011, the Utes are 34-39 against their fellow conference schools. In their all-time history, Utah is 110-157-6 against the Pac-12.Oddly enough, the 3-0 Utes are one of only four teams in NCAA Division I FBS football not to allow a sack this season.Senior tailback Zack Moss is tied for sixth in the nation with 373 yards and four rushing touchdowns. Should he run for 100 yards against the Trojans, this would be his 14th career 100-yard rushing game for the Utes, the most in school history. Moss’ 124.3 yards per game rank him eighth nationally, tied with Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts.The Utes’ rushing offense is 32nd in the nation (226 yards per game),  and 7th nationally against the run, surrendering only 65 yards per contest on the ground. The Utes have held BYU, Northern Illinois and Idaho State under 100 yards on the ground in the first three games of the season.Furthermore, Utah is eighth nationally in interceptions (4) and total yards surrendered per game (239.3 yards) and 13th in first downs allowed (37).Utah ranks second nationally in passing efficiency, completing 78.7 percent of their passes. Utes senior signal-caller Tyler Huntley has completed 77.7 percent of his passes on the season (42-54,) for 602 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions. This ranks him 7th nationally in passing efficiency with a rating of 195.90.Sophomore tight end Brant Kuithe (7 rec, 143 yards, TD, 20.4 yards per reception) is the Utes’ leading receiver.Senior defensive end Bradlee Anae has three sacks on the season to lead the Utes, while sophomore linebacker Devin Lloyd has two more sacks for Utah.Senior defensive back Julian Blackmon has two interceptions to pace the Utes in that stat.USC comes into this game at 2-1, on the heels of a 30-27 overtime loss at Provo against BYU.The Trojans score 34.3 points per game (tied for 47th nationally with Wake Forest and Colorado State) and surrender 24.3 points per game (tied for 64th nationally with Duke and Ohio).Freshman signal-caller Kedon Slovis comes into Friday’s game completing 77.3 percent of his passes for 715 yards, five touchdowns and four interceptions.Redshirt junior tailback Vavae Malepeai has run for 272 yards and four scores on the season for the Trojans as their leading rusher thus far.Redshirt junior receiver Tyler Vaughns (23 rec, 321 yards, TD) and senior receiver Michael Pittman Jr. (21 rec, 205 yards, 2 TD’s) are the Trojans’ leading receivers.Freshman defensive lineman Drake Jackson (2 sacks, forced fumble) and redshirt sophomore safety Isaiah Pola-Mao and redshirt sophomore cornerback Greg Johnson (an interception apiece) are USC’s defensive leaders.USC leads Utah 11-6 all-time.

OxHoli event postponed to Freshers’ Week after venue failure

first_imgSrishti Suresh, the president of HUMSoc, commented, “Our original venue was not able to accommodate us owing to prior commitments; we contacted almost every space in Oxford with the capacity to host Holi, but due to the short notice and similar difficulties with the proposed dates (given that they either clashed with exam timings or sports matches) as well as valid concerns about the nature of Holi (as it does generate quite a lot of mess!) they were not able to accommodate us either. “We are deeply saddened that we weren’t able to host OxHoli this term, but HUMSoc is currently going over plans for other events (such as our Bollywood night in 6th Week), which we hope people will be able to attend. In addition, we’re redirecting all our creative energy towards Diwali Ball, which we hope to host in Michaelmas.” Brasenose Bursar Philip Parker told Cherwell, “The College would have been delighted to host this event at our sports ground, but made clear from the first communication (in March) that it would have to fit in with the schedule of cricket matches and other planned events. As cricket schedules are not fixed until late April, we pointed out to the organisers that it might be wise to find an alternative venue. Unfortunately it turnedoutthatamatch was scheduled on the desired day. Our Domestic Bursar did what he could to assist with finding another venue.”HUMSoc plans to rearrange OxHoli for Sunday 11th October during Freshers’ Week. The Oxford University Hindu Society (HUMSoc) has postponed OxHoli 2015 until Michaelmas term after a last-minute venue cancellation. The event was due to take place on Saturday 23rd May, but plans to hold the Hindu festival of colours at Brasenose College Sports Ground fell through and the organisers were unable to find a different venue at short notice. A few days before OxHoli was planned to go ahead, a message was posted on the OxHoli Facebook page apologising for having to postpone the event, stating, “We are so sorry but we’ve been put in the unfortunate position of having to postpone Holi for the time being. Our original venue cancelled on us very recently and we’ve been frantically searching for a new one since (with little success). “We’ve tried almost every college sports ground – so do hit us up with any ideas and in the meantime we will continue to work hard.”OxHoli is an event where participants throw coloured powder over one another to celebrate the end of the Winter season. Following on from the previous success of OxHoli, HUMSoc was keen to replicate the event and was planning to introduce live music this year, with DJ Ravi Skanker and DJ Salman Kushti on the line-up.last_img read more

13th Annual Chip Miller Surf Fest and Inaugural Slide for Amyloid Event

first_imgArt Credit: Aaron “Bogy” Bogushefsky, – REGISTRATION FOR THE EVENT WILL CLOSE ON THURSDAY 7-28 AT NOON. July 29, 2016: A Family Day with the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation This July 29th, the waves of the Atlantic along the Ocean City, NJ boardwalk will be home to the 13th Annual Chip Miller Surf Fest, a community-wide surf contest and family event that has grown to be one of the largest surf events on the East Coast attracting some of the biggest names in surfing such as, Bethany Hamilton, Brad Gerlach and Rob Machado.  Local NJ pros have also joined in the fun:  Dean Randazzo, Sam Hammer, Andrew Gesler and Matt Keenan.This year, the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation (CMAF) will be expanding the event to include something new for 2016: “Slide for Amyloidosis.” – formerly known as the Surf Fest After Party, will be a family fun night at the OC, NJ waterpark that includes private access to the waterslides, dinner, drinks and a huge raffle.Pre-registration prices are available for both events if registered early, please visit http://ChipMiller.org for more information and prices. Proceeds from the surf and slide event will help the CMAF support Peter Dooley, an East Coast surfing pioneer and legend who has been stricken with an Amyloid-related disease. The foundation has donated money to cover necessary equipment for improving the quality of home healthcare for Mr. Dooley. CMAF is looking to support his aqua-therapy needs.  As his physical abilities permit, Mr. Dooley is planning to attend the CMAF events. Peter stated the following: “Hard for me to fathom. I have been in business since I was about twenty years old and I have always been the ‘sponsor’ of events, of surfers and the needs of friends. I don’t know how to respond to your kindness. Thanks to the board and their graciousness.”In looking ahead to this year’s Surf Fest, CMAF Board President and son of the late Chip Miller, Lance Miller notes: “I have always been overwhelmed with the amount of local support that the Surf Fest receives.” Miller continues, “We started this event 13 years ago and it has truly grown into a community event. This year, we are proud to have the opportunity to give back to someone who has been a long-time supporter of the surf community.”“Peter Dooley has influenced many over the years and this is just one way that the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation can make a difference in the life of someone inflicted with an Amyloid-related disease.  It allows those who participate to see first-hand where the money we raise is going,” says Miller.The Surf Fest and the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation (www.chipmiller.org) were created in memory of Chip Miller in 2004. Just a few short months after Chip was diagnosed with Amyloidosis, the world lost an incredibly special person.In his memory, Chip Miller’s family and friends founded the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation to empower people with the knowledge and understanding of Amyloidosis — for earlier detection, ensuring a better quality of life for those afflicted with the disease, and to help science find the cure.What Everyone Should Know Amyloidosis occurs when enough abnormal protein, called amyloid, builds up in one or more organs to cause a malfunction. As an abnormal protein, amyloid originates in bone marrow.  The heart, kidneys, nervous system and gastrointestinal tract are most often affected by the disease.Signs and symptoms of amyloidosis depend on the organs affected. The wide range of symptoms makes it difficult to diagnose.  For more information about amyloidosis – including signs/symptoms — visit the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation website  http://chipmiller.org/about_amyloid.php.The mission of the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation is to empower people with the knowledge and understanding of amyloidosis for earlier detection, ensuring a better quality of life for those afflicted with the disease and to help science find the cures. To learn more about amyloidosis and to make a donation to the Chip Miller Charitable Foundation, visit our site at www.ChipMiller.org.For more information about the Foundation, to make donations or purchase pins, please call or visit our Web site (www.ChipMiller.org).WEATHER ADVISORY: We are watching the weather closely, it appears Friday could have heavy thunder and lightning along with heavy rain. We are considering hosting the contest on Saturday – July 30th. A final call will be made on this at 5pm on Thursday – please check the www.ChipMiller.org website for the latest details!last_img read more

Drink the CUDE Koolaid

first_imgWhen I first entered the Credit Union industry, I can safely say that I knew nothing.Zilch.Zip.Nada.I knew customer service and I knew how to count money.The rest was a mystery to me.When I got a phone call from my current CEO about some class in Wisconsin, I was nervous.What in the world was CUDE and where was the National Credit Union Foundation?First, I had never traveled by myself.Second, I had no idea what this class was even about nor what I would do it that weeks’ time.Third, I was new. So new that I was still marveling that the girl who struggled in math class was now a teller.Before my heart spoke to my brain and my brain filtered the clutter, I said SURE! I will go.I found myself on a plane to Madison, Wisconsin to await adventures that I knew nothing about…yet.I was on my way to the Credit Union Development Educator program.…BUT what WAS it?I need to tell you, I felt fancy traveling by myself.Just a Midwest gal flying abroad…okay not abroad…but it felt like it being my first time alone.I got off the plane and managed to find my luggage just fine.Next stop, find a taxi.I had landed early and had about two hours to spare before I could actually check in to my hotel.I decided to be super travel lady and ask to go to State Street in Madison.I had done some research and saw that it was a cool downtown spot with outdoor seating and eclectic shopping.My taxi dropped me on State Street with my rolling luggage.Any other time I would have felt like a travel dork, but being my first solo trip I felt mysterious and cool.I wasn’t. I just felt it.So I sat on State Street and had a coffee and sandwich while I watched all of the people walk up and down the sidewalks.I want to tell you about how this is the first time that I saw bubble tea and how I thought I should get one…AND how I got one and choked on the bobbas in it and nearly died right there on State Street in Madison…BUT that is for another time.It was time for me to grab an Uber and head to the hotel.I got into my Uber as the driver placed my luggage in the trunk.He gets into the driver’s seat and says, “Where we going?”I tell him the address.He stalls for a moment as if he wanted to say something, but started to drive instead.Two blocks and one left turn later, I was at the hotel.Yes, I took an uber for two blocks.Turns out my research on State Street did not include the whereabouts of my hotel.I wanted to tell him that I had a bum leg.I wanted to tell him that I just wanted to support Uber drivers.I wanted to tell him that my luggage had lost a wheel and this was easier.Instead, I tipped him extra and prayed he didn’t have to pick me up again during the duration of my stay.Checking in to that hotel and starting the DE process was life changing.Big statement. I know.It DID change my life.I would love to tell you all of the details of what you will go through and learn.I want to tell you about the variety of chances that you have available to network and connect with your peers from around the world.I want to tell you that if you finish the CUDE program and don’t feel a thing, that maybe you aren’t in the right industry.More so, I want to give you the low-down details.I am sure you expected it too.Every DE knows that there is a level of secrecy to the process.Nobody ever said it was a secret, but the magic within that experience leads to this fantastic mystery that surrounds the wonder of the program.I am sure you read this article to get some insight to the schedule.Maybe a play by play of each day.What I will tell you is this, you will NOT regret sending yourself, your employees, your board members…What I will tell you is that it does NOT matter how long or how little you have been involved in the industry; this IS for you.What I will tell you is that if you want to know how WHO you are can meet WHAT you do professionally and ignite this fantastic flame, go to CUDE.I said yes to the opportunity and it changed my life.It changed my credit union path.It changed my passion for what I was doing professionally.It made me see life clearer and with an empathetic lens.It made me realize that who I am is exactly what the credit union movement celebrated.I didn’t know what a credit union truly was nor had I had a large cup of what is referred to as the “CU Kool-aid”.I was nervous.I was scared that I would not know enough and that I would stick out like a newbie.Instead, it lit my flame for the movement and caused this never-ending rush of CAN DO attitude.So, I guess after all of the things that I have said above, what I am TRULY saying is…Drink the CUDE Kool-aid.Best served with a warm heart and a passionate spirit. 99SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Nanci Wilson Nanci started her credit union journey due to lack of kindness.That fact is what led her to close her bank account and open up at a credit union.Ultimately … Web: https://www.universityfederalcu.org Detailslast_img read more
