    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. 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…

    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.

    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!

    Change must happen but who must change?

    Posted by Des Squire on July 18, 2014 at 10:32 6 Comments

     

    Recently while training on “Change Management” I was asked – How do you deal with people who refuse to change or who refuse to embrace change? My response was – Have you considered that perhaps it is you who needs to change?

    The problem is we see everything through “our own eyes” and we see things as always having been done in a certain way and fail to see things from the point of view of others. We…

    Is it really very important for busy company representatives to attend CCMA arbitrations?

    Company management and executives are always busy, so is it really necessary for them to waste time at the CCMA arbitration hearings? Every labour law practitioner has heard similar questions.
