    A word of thanks goes a long way

    Posted by Des Squire on July 29, 2014 at 16:20 0 Comments

    I get so annoyed when members of skills Universe ask for help and or assistance, for draft documents to be used, for details of training and other skills related information and then fail to have the courtesy to acknowledge receipt, to say thank you and worse still make use for alternate purposes what is sent to them. surely when we ask for help we should at least say "thank you"

    I also feel it is a liberty when people who are studying ask for information they can make use of…

    Posted by Chantel Harris on July 29, 2014 at 13:00 1 Comment

    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…


    Talent management is a vital edge in the digital agency world

    Posted by Lia Marus on July 23, 2014 at 12:30 0 Comments

    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.
