Employee recognition tops loyalty factor poll

first_imgEmployee recognition tops loyalty factor pollOn 4 Jun 2002 in Personnel Today The top three drivers of workplace loyalty in the UK are employeerecognition, open and honest communication and strong teamwork, according to aManpower international survey. The study also finds that only about half of the 347 UK HR managers polledbelieve their companies’ recruitment and retention strategies are effective increating loyalty. Manpower chairman and CEO Jeffrey Joerres unveiled the survey results lastweek in a keynote session at the WFPMA 9th World Congress in Mexico. The research reveals that almost a quarter of UK HR managers believeemployee loyalty has decreased over the last three years, while 23 per cent whobelieve it increased. Over the next three years, many HR managers take a more optimistic view: 42per cent expect employee loyalty to increase. Only 20 per cent of the 737 UKemployees surveyed expect their loyalty to rise. Joerres warned delegates against adopting a “one size fits all”approach to creating employee loyalty. He said: “You must change your programmes depending on your population.One challenge the HR director has is that they develop one programme and giveit to all employees. You can create ‘saboteurs’ and disloyalty even if you havea good programme for 80 percent of your population.” In discussion on the survey, John Steele, group personnel director for BTplc, said he believes effective line management is crucial to staff loyalty. “The challenge is that line management own these (loyalty) programmes.It’s very important that the line management experience, day to day, is a goodone. It is clear this is a major factor.” By DeeDee Doke Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

Cricket News Babar Azam, Imad Wasim star as Pakistan crush Australia in first T20I

first_imgNew Delhi: Babar Azam’s magnificent unbeaten 68*, complimented by Imad Wasim’s haul of 3/20 helped Pakistan get their Twenty20 series against Australia off to a great start with a crushing 66-run win in the first match in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. (SCORECARD)Azam’s knock proved to be the difference on a sluggish pitch and his 73-run stand for the second wicket with Mohammad Hafeez (39) put Pakistan on course for a huge total. However, a disastrous middle-overs collapse from Pakistan, in which they lost six wickets for 23 runs, gave Australia momentum. Billy Stanlake (3/21) and Andrew Tye (3/24) were in great form and it seemed like Pakistan had thrown away the advantage. Read More| Four ‘suspicious’ men arrested from outside CBI chief Alok Verma’s house Some lusty blows from Hasan Ali (17) in the final over, bowled by Nathan Coulter-Nile, helped Pakistan cross 150. It was a significant score to cross for the hosts, who had lost only three out of 42 games while defending totals in excess of 150+. Disaster for AustraliaIn response, Australia’s chase got off to a disastrous start. Imad Wasim, who was making a comeback into the Pakistan side after more than a year, ripped through the Australia top order with the wickets of Aaron Finch (0) and D’ Arcy Short (4) in the first over. Wasim was well backed by Faheem Ashraf who bowled the dangerous Glenn Maxwell for 2. Wasim continued to torment Australia and his next victim was wicketkeeper Alex Carrey for 1.Ben McDermott’s run-out increased Australia’s woes and when Ashraf accounted for the big-hitting Chris Lynn for 14, Australia were out of the contest at 26/6. Some gritty batting from Nathan Coulter-Nile (34) and Ashton Agar (19) ensured Australia avoided further humiliation but they could hang on and Pakistan bowled Australia out for 89 to register a crushing win. Read More | Delhi air quality slips to ‘very poor’ category; to remain so for next two daysIn the post-match presentation, Australia skipper Aaron Finch rued the batting collapse of Australia. “That power play was horrific…it was like a car crash in slow motion. Opening the batting, it’s my responsibility to get us off to a good start and set up the chase there. I take full responsibility for that. I think any time that you’re chasing a total like that it’s important you have a solid start and for me to get out in the first over and not give us that was not good enough,” Finch said. The second match of the three-game series will be played in Dubai on October 26.

Los Angeles County gives extra funding to shelters

first_imgThe Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved a $25 million boost in assistance to county homeless shelters on Tuesday. Roughly $3.5 million will come into each of the five supervisors’ districts. According to Supervisor Gloria Molina, one possible recipient of a slice of that money would be the East San Gabriel Valley Coalition for the Homeless. Bob McKennon of the Hacienda Heights-based coalition said it’s nice the money is out there, but he expects any effort to open a year-round shelter in the San Gabriel Valley would be met with strong resistance by local residents. “Even if the money was there, the question is where can we do it?” McKennon said. “The dilemma we have is nobody wants that in their community.” Still, one idea floated by the coalition in past years was to build a year-round emergency shelter in Industry, where it would be surrounded by industrial neighbors. The amount of money the coalition could get would be based upon the type of proposal the all-volunteer group submits, said Roxanne Marquez, an aide to Molina. Marquez said shelters requesting funds for improvements or expansion would be bumped to the head of the line. But the coalition’s winter shelter program has no fixed address. Starting Dec. 1, the shelter will open two weeks at a time in seven Valley churches. The shelter is the only one in the East Valley, and it served 950 people last winter. “The question will be families, because last year we had an increase over the prior year,” McKennon said. About 90,000 people are homeless in Los Angeles County on any given night, according to one study. Roughly 2,700 are in the East San Gabriel Valley, according to experts. jason.[email protected] (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2717 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
