An Alternative Employment

Posted on April 29, 2018 By

Imagine this happening to you. You are a faithful, dependable person who works hard at work. Most of your work involves teamwork, and you do even more than what you are expected to do. You also do your work properly with no comebacks, and it’s a pleasure working with you. On top of that, you are always on time at work, no excuses, and if you are going to be late, you phone and inform the supervisor, giving a definite time of when you can be expected to be at work. Your employer insists on having employees tested from time to time for any evidence of substance abuse, but they could never accuse of anything because you are innocent. Then, the biggest nightmare that could ever happen to a man happened to you. You were retrenched, or you were forced to resign because the company does not just retrench people, it costs extra money. That is traumatic for you because you have a family to provide for, and at the end of the month, you have to pay the rent.

And what about food for the family and it’s even worse if you have children? And you

Don’t be in a hurry when you are filling out your application and have someone go

Is Employee Engagement Really That Important

Posted on April 9, 2018 By

Employee engagement is not just another of those ‘buzzwords’ used by management consultants, but an important business concept which has a direct impact of a company’s profitability. Communication, trust and mutual respect are key to effective employee engagement. In combination, these make staff feel valued and lead to greater motivation, higher staff retention and improved productivity.

Part of the family

Fortunately, the days of staff clocking in and out with punch cards and time clocks are long gone. Old-fashioned time and attendance systems not only treated employees simply as numbers on a payroll, but implied their honesty was suspect. As a result, shop floor and management were poles apart; employee engagement was unheard of so it’s hardly surprising that increasing productivity was challenging.

Richard Branson, CEO of Virgin, summed it up when he said “Our first priority should be the people who work for the companies, then the customers, then the shareholders. Because if the staff are motivated then the customers will be happy, and the shareholders will then benefit through the company’s success.”

The advent of modern IT-based systems has revolutionised time and attendance not only by simplifying

Learn How to Answer Interview Questions

Posted on April 9, 2018 By

You can learn how to give a good job interview the same way you learned how to get good at playing golf, riding your bicycle, skiing, or shooting hoops. You practice a lot. Similarly, you’ll learn how to answer interview questions by writing them down and rehearsing your answers.

Professional golfer Tiger Woods didn’t learn how to putt by playing in the Master’s tournament. Tiger’s background was filled with practice. He practiced alone and a lot. Woods entered competition only when he mastered the use of his putter.

You haven’t earned the right to compete at interviews until you’ve mastered the use of your interview skills.

While there are a handful of tricky, tough, and even embarrassing questions you could be asked, let’s focus on just two of them today: Why are you looking for a job? And, “Tell me about yourself?”

This question might also be asked in another way: “Are you still working at the XYZ Company?” You need to respond with a cover story. You cover the reasons why you’re out looking for work. Here’s

How Practical Is Your Leadership Development Strategy

Posted on March 25, 2018 By

Gardeners are, by their natural, practical people. They don’t operate in a world of theory. Their focus is on the tangible actions they can take to get a result. I would like to see more organisations take a similar approach when it comes to developing their frontline leaders.

Frontline leaders are also practical. I describe them as the people who get their hands dirty in an organisation, often pitching in to help their team with the day to day tasks. This means we need to provide them with a practical and easy to understand development path.

Being practical implies a step by step approach where it is easy to see the links between each phase. That’s why I have designed a model for developing frontline leaders called the Practical Leadership Development model.

Plan
Before a gardener puts anything in the ground they make a plan so they can best use their limited resources. Before you start developing your frontline leaders you need to assess your current situation to determine where you are and where you want to go. Conduct a stocktake of your current strategy and tactics to assess what is working and what

The Importance Of Staff Holiday Leaves

Posted on March 12, 2018 By

As an employer, employee productivity is what matters most to you. Without this, your company operations and growth would be paralyzed and this is every business’s nightmare. Your staff is the most important people because they can make or break your company. Wise employers know how to keep their employees happy so they are able to give their best and have no reason to leave the company for a better one. Holiday leaves are some of the most important when it comes to keeping your staff happy and this is why.

They enhance productivity. Working all through can lead to burnout and this translates into low productivity. When you offer annual leave to your employees, you give them a chance to refocus and relax their minds and they will be able to give out more when they return to their duties.

They reduce employee absenteeism. If you do not allow any time for them to take care of their personal issues, employees will always find a way to create that time and this means you would have to deal with plenty of absenteeism. But when you carefully allocate holiday leave to them, you allow them to

Struggle of Women In Tech Marketing Jobs

Posted on March 8, 2018 By

Appointment of Ruth Porat, as Chief Financial Officer at Google, may be symbolized as an empowerment of women in tech marketing jobs. But, it’s sad that this glory is dimmed down with the actual data showing the decline in the ratio of tech jobs held by women. According to the study of the American Association of University Women, which is an NGO, on a mission to promote gender equality, the percentage of women in computing jobs has significantly fallen over last 23 years. The data reveals an uncomforting fact for the fairer sex; where women constituted 35% of the total tech workforce in 1990, the share dipped to 26% in 2013, painting a skewed image of tech jobs in the favour of male professionals. The study also alarms about the falling numbers of women earning computing degrees.

The reasons of this decline can be discovered in the untold stories of inequality and discrimination, women face in their everyday professional life in tech world, be it for the promotion list or appreciation for their hard work. Although, the society applaud women for scaling heights in every sphere of work and their substantial contribution to the world economy, still
