    POPI offers SA business the chance to clean house

    Posted by Lia Marus on July 24, 2014 at 8:30 0 Comments

    by Anne-Marié Pretorius

    The Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI) is an opportunity for South African corporates to enforce sound business practices across the board and effectively 'clean house'. South African companies are on the low end of the spectrum when it comes to information security spending but POPI encourages employers to update the aspects of business where personal information is affected, especially where many…

    Motivating employees - uphill battle or rolling stone?

    Posted by Lia Marus on July 24, 2014 at 8:30 0 Comments

    by Peter McDermott

    It's a tough time of year for employers who are struggling to motivate their employees. Generally speaking, motivated employees are more productive and more loyal (even through the tough times). A motivated workforce means less absenteeism and it's more viable financially to motivate an employee than paying the costs to replace an unmotivated one. But how do you go about motivating employees? I've done some research…

    by Andre Steenekamp

    For a business that's so driven by its people, the digital agency environment is one characterised by high levels of staff turnover and burn-out. What's more, many agencies are also finding it difficult to keep their skills base up to date in an ever-evolving landscape. These realities show just how important it is for digital agencies to start thinking about talent management as a strategic priority. Management needs to take charge and understand that…

    We need to improve the standard of education – fast

    Posted by Lia Marus on July 22, 2014 at 7:30 0 Comments

    by Lia Marus

    In a written reply to a parliamentary question tabled yesterday, basic education minister, Angie Motshekga, stated that nearly 12 million children are enrolled at public schools. Providing our youth with a decent education is the first step towards solving South Africa's unemployment crisis, which means we have a duty to improve the standard of education in our country.

    Cold, Warm, Hot...Call!

    Posted by Michelle Shippel on July 21, 2014 at 16:34 2 Comments



    Do you find that you tense up and busy yourself with odds and bobs around the office when you hear that you need to begin cold calling? Are you putting silly notions in your own head that you will not get the deal and therefore you are refraining from cold calling? Let's all take a step back and just breathe!
