SMOKING AT WORK

I read an interesting article in the Weekend Argus of 15 March 2014, THANK YOU FOR NOT SMOKING AT WORK Tony Healy discussed smoking at work in his article. He said that employers are entitled to impose a ban or reduce pay for breaks taken. I am sure that smokers were and will be up in arms when they read this.

Smokers are entitled to smoke before and after work, during their lunch and tea breaks. This is unfortunately not happening in most instances.

Why Can't The Man On The Street Learn To Speak ?

Picture
 One of my favourite musicals "My Fair Lady" has always had, and always will have, a great and very positive impact on both my life and my work. Funnily enough, I was even referred to by one of my many clients as "the Fair Lady." The ability to communicate and express oneself genuinely, whether through a musical instrument, vocally, artistically or through dance has becoming…

Successful career planning depends on attibility – but what is attibility?

by Lia Marus

Recently, I interviewed a number of HR managers in the IT industry and asked them what attracts people to work for their companies. Most of them said, without a shadow of a doubt, that their career planning initiatives are their competitive advantage. However, no matter how good the career planning schemes that a company offers are, if a candidate will succeed in his or her chosen career will depend on their…

WOMEN IN LEADERSHIP

Some years back, former Chairman and CEO of Shell U.K., John Collins, once sent the following memo to employees:

"For too long macho management has been hailed as the only way to run things, and that has put women at a disadvantage, with their abilities measured against criteria set by men. This has been a tremendous waste of talent - something that business can no longer afford."

If you are a woman in management, you are probably all too well aware of this! If you are a male…

LEADERSHIP COACHING - THE FOUR FRAMEWORK MODEL.

In the Four Framework Approach, Bolman and Deal (1991) suggest that leaders display leadership behaviours in one of four types of frameworks: Structural, Human Resource, Political, or Symbolic. The style can either be effective or ineffective, depending upon the chosen behaviour in certain situations.

1. STRUCTURAL FRAMEWORK: In an effective leadership situation, the leader is a SOCIAL ARCHITECT whose leadership style is analysis and design. While in an ineffective leadership…

Talent management strategy: Are you building your competitors’ talent pipeline?

by Kim Dowdeswell

As organisations look to drive growth in challenging markets, they recognise the need – in their talent management strategies - for a strong bench of rising talent that evolves with the shifting needs of the business. Our research shows that organisations with stronger leadership gain double the revenue and profit growth compared to companies with weaker leadership. This means that developing effective leadership from…

The Passive-Aggressive Individual and the Office

It is highly likely that you’ve had to deal with a passive-aggressive individual in your time. Whether you realised it or not, is another matter, because passive-aggressiveness can be very subtle. Or simply be mistaken for tardiness or even forgetfulness.



Passive-aggressive – let’s recap

Oscar Pistorius: What if he worked for you?

by Frew Murdoch

The Oscar Pistorius trial has caused a sensation across the nation with everyone throwing their opinions about the trial around on social media and in everyday conversation. Oscar's celebrity status has already blown the case onto international radars. This got me thinking: what would happen if Oscar Pistorius wasn't a celebrity and he worked for your company?

Standard Industry Code (SIC) confusion

Dear All

I need help. SARS has changed their IRP5 requirements and has included a field for the SIC code. However, SARS stipulates that we use the SIC version 7 list (Business Requirements Specifications).

Unfortunately, my 'old' SIC code (version 5) does not exist any longer. We were 61909 - Wholesale and Retail n.e.c..

The closest we come to that code is 61900, but that has changed to Other Telecommunications Activities which has nothing to do with our core…

Attention HR profession: How to deal with a scapegoat in your company

by Ivan Israelstam

We've been consulted when there's been a crisis in a workplace (e.g. important clients were offended or the company lost money) but an innocent person has been blamed. It's been our experience – as reported by members of the HR profession - that when this happens, managers run for cover while pointing fingers. Sometimes, the accusing finger is in fact pointed in the right direction but just as often the wrong person's…
