Where should I study?

first_imgLouise White, consultant, EJ Human Resources, writes: Visit each university and have a good look around. Find outas much as you can about past students and how their careers have progressed.Establish if there are any special areas of research going on which are ofinterest or are particularly high profile. Are there links with particularcompanies or organisations which could offer the opportunity for interestingstudy or career opportunities? Assuming that you have chosen to do a Mastersdegree for your own career enhancement, one of your main criteria should be thesuccess of the university in placing its graduates in the kind of position youare seeking. Peter Wilford, consultant, Chiumento, writes: Comments are closed. How will you fit with each University? Your decision willvery likely be made based on how you feel about the staff you meet and thegeneral ethos of the place. Other factors need to be considered. If you preferbeing assessed through continuous assessment rather than exams (or vice versa)then this may be an important factor in your success on the course. Look at thequality of the careers service. What companies do they attract on the milkround? What companies are sponsoring their employees through similar courses?Specifically on the HR front, what is the track record of the students inwinning HR-related prizes? Finally rememberthe practical considerations to think of such as geography, commuting etc. You will have alreadydone a great deal of research to be at the stage of being accepted by twouniversities so the issues of prestige and track record will already have beenconsidered. Previous Article Next Article There are a number of people you can speak to. Askspecialist HR recruitment consultancies if they know of any candidates theycould put you in touch with who have studied the courses you are interested in.Contact the university to ask for exam results, and if you can, find out aboutthe lecturers. In my opinion, lecturers who have worked in industry and notjust academia make for a more relevant and worthwhile course. Also, try theCIPD who will be able to let you know if the course has been approved by themwhich will give a good indication of the standard. I have been accepted by two Universities to do a Mastersdegree in HR, but I’m having trouble deciding which to accept. Any advice?Margaret Malpas,joint managing director, Malpas Flexible Learning, writes:Find out who is teaching, what their specialism is anddecide whether this is the flavour you want. Then ask to be put in touchwith some past students and find out what they felt about it. Finally, see howthey handle your enquiry and admission. This can be a good test of theirculture.

Jadranka Group increased salaries by 8 percent

first_imgAfter a successful season, the Lošinj-based Jadranka Group is further raising investments in salaries and employee education.Thus, eight percent more funds were allocated for salaries and other investments in permanent and seasonal employees than in 2018. Jadranka Group also invests multimillion amounts in additional education of its employees at all levels.The training program in the Jadranka Group includes in-house workshops, theoretical lectures and practical trainings. Among them, the Gastro Academy stands out, which directs employees to improve the skills needed for high service at the 5 * level. In addition to internal training, employees have the opportunity to expand their knowledge and skills and thus attend specialized programs in external institutions for highly specialized occupations, such as concierge, sommelier, bartender or butler.”We believe that the salary increase is a logical step in the development of the Group’s business and employee relations, which are a key factor for successful business. In the hotel and camping industry, we are continuously increasing our base from year to year, and thus, in addition to improving living and working conditions, we also give our employees a kind of recognition and gratitude for their collective success. Also, this year we increased the basic salaries for occupations in retail, wholesale and food production in trade.. “, Said Sanjin Šolić, President of the Management Board of Jadranka Group.Photo: Jadranka groupSpeaking about the increase in salaries and the improvement of employee conditions, Mr. Šolić pointed out that one of the Group’s priorities is to ensure the best possible conditions for the accommodation of seasonal employees. It is with this goal that the arrangement of capacities at the level of 4 * was approached, which will provide employees with adequate accommodation and provide more comfortable living conditions during their stay on Lošinj.Also, for all seasonal employees, the Jaddranka group offers the status of a permanent seasonal worker at the end of the season, which guarantees them a job for next year as well as the rights of permanent employees, an Easter card and a gift for children. By the way, Jadranka employs about 700 permanent employees, while during the tourist season the total number of employees is about 1.600 employees distributed in all subsidiaries.last_img read more

Cause for celebrations and concern

first_imgThe Carifta Games are still as right for the young track and field athletes of the region as they were first staged in 1972. As seen last weekend, Carifta still gives the future stars of Caribbean track and field their first experience of international competition. It’s an invaluable first step on the way to the top.For so many, including the dominant Jamaican teams, it’s a maiden voyage into competition beyond their own shores into airline travel, different cuisine and unfamiliar stadia. It was a master stroke when the Barbadian Austin Sealyformulated the event in 1972. Now, as it was then, it’s like international competition 101.The Carifta Games also presents data for regional track and field administrators to learn from. While the sprints in both the Under-18 and Under-20 age categories had enough entries to require a preliminary round, that wasn’t the case in other events. While that wouldn’t be a surprise in the 1500m, 3000m and 5000m, there were no heats in the girls’ Under-20 800 metres, the 4x100m and 4x400m for boys and girls in both the Under-18 and Under-20 categories and in most of the hurdling events.Five girls faced the starter in the 400-metre hurdles for Under-18 girls, with four in the Under-20 version. This is startling, given the bright history in a discipline where Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados have produced high-class exponents. It was worse among the boys, with the corresponding numbers being five and three. Here the region has recently produced champions like Jehue Gordon of Trinidad and Tobago and Bahamian Jeffery Gibson.Four girls came to the blocks in the Under-20 100-metre hurdles and five young men came to contest the Under-20 110m hurdles.In the field, only three girls are listed as participants in the Under-20 high jump. This is in contrast to an apparent Caribbean upswing in the event. Just last year, Levern Spencer won this event at the Pan-American Games, with her St Lucian compatriot, Jeanelle Schepper, taking the NCAA title for the University of South Carolina. Earlier in March, the Barbadian Akela Jones cleared 1.98 metres in the National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA) indoors as part of the heptathlon. Jones also won the individual high jump as well.If those numbers represent ongoing trends, and in many cases they do, then the region has lots of work to do.Jamaica may be able to take care of itself. Thanks to the ISSA Boys and Girls’ Championships, our high schools pursue excellence in a wide range of athletic disciplines. Even here, there are long running weak spots in the jumps, throws and middle and long distance disciplines. The rest of the region doesn’t have Champs and needs help to spark development. Some, like St Vincent and the Grenadines, don’t even have a synthetic running track.Maybe that’s why Jamaica is becoming attractive to junior athletes from the region. They can’t wait until development comes to their island home. So they instead come to the place where, because of Champs, development is far more advanced. It’s a fair guess that they will keep on coming.n HUBERT LAWRENCE has made notes at track side since 1980.last_img read more

Police look to keep Gardena safe and clean

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champLos Angeles Police Chief William Bratton embraced the “broken windows” theory when he headed the New York Police Department and has taken measures in several Los Angeles neighborhoods to employ it. It seems a natural marriage: cops and blight. That’s because officers who patrol troubled areas regularly see the outward signs of decline. And now they have a way to take action to clean it up. “Now it doesn’t look like we’re just going into an area, causing chaos and leaving,” Police Chief Ed Medrano said. In Gardena, the Police Department is writing an average of three referrals a day to the city’s public works department to clean up graffiti, trash, potholes and other eyesores. In small-town fashion, the city’s departments work together closely. The first month, officers wrote about 50 referrals. In November, the number jumped to 180. “We want to show the Police Department we have credibility, that we’re doing our job,” said Public Works Director Bruce Pollack. “Once they see that on a consistent basis, and they see tangible evidence that what they put on the sheet changes something. It boils down to police and public works truly working together. The key word is truly.” Concrete results – potholes filled in 48 hours, graffiti cleaned, furniture cleared from streets – are what makes the program successful, he said. Medrano agrees. “For our officers, if you implement anything and they don’t see visible change, they’re not going to do it,” Medrano said. “Within 24 hours, we see a change.” Both Medrano and Pollack review the referrals to make sure they are handled quickly. Pollack may have more insight into the program than a typical public works director because he came to the city from the Sheriff’s Department. Before retiring last year as a captain, he oversaw the sheriff’s personnel department and at one point trained deputies in community policing. Though he had little knowledge of the daily operations of sewers, parks, streets, sidewalks and traffic lights when he took the job, he said he has been able to make good use of his extensive administrative experience. “We can’t fix every street or sidewalk overnight,” Pollack said. “But things like graffiti, trash, curb weeds, we don’t need a lot of time. We can take care of it right away.” Officer Yvette Evans, an 18-year department veteran, said she appreciates the closer ties with public works officials. Recently, she has turned in referrals for a detached street sign on Purche Avenue. She also has spotted and referred graffiti and broken sprinklers and street lights. “It’s an immediate turnaround. It keeps the city looking much better,” Evans said. “It’s changed immensely. With our district policing, citizens have a direct line with us. Now we have a direct line with public works personnel. They immediately respond to our concerns.” [email protected] local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! They still investigate robberies, arrest bad guys and prowl around town catching prostitutes and drug dealers, but Gardena cops have been cracking down on a new kind of culprit. Illegally dumped trash, graffiti, potholes, untrimmed trees and abandoned shopping carts no longer get reprieve from the city’s street cops. Since Gardena’s police and public works departments paired up this summer, they have together cleared hundreds of messes around town. They are trying to combat what experts call the “broken windows” theory of neighborhood decline. A broken window that goes unrepaired signals that no one cares, the theory goes. Graffiti, vandalism, street drug dealing and prostitution foster fear, and more serious crime follows. last_img read more
