I believe we can expect creative responses in this time of rapid transition and unanticipated opportunities.”“The Executive Officer of General Convention must be a skilled engineer who can tend the machinery of our polity, a wise listener and facilitator, and, once every three years, the master of the Big Top,” commented President Jennings. “I can’t think of anyone better qualified to fill all of these roles than Michael Barlowe.

Camelot finds a winning line with jobs flexibility

first_img Comments are closed. Lottery operator Camelot has found that a flexible approach to working can control labour costs and bring focus to core business activities.Its HR team claims using part-time and agency staff on flexible contracts cuts costs and allows it to tackle problems such as absenteeism and sickness.Issues such as sickness have become the responsibility of contractors – enabling Camelot to focus on corporate strategy. Camelot’s findings are highlighted in a report on work trends published last week by the Birmingham-based Centre for Tomorrow’s Company.In the study, New Working Patterns, Camelot’s HR team said offering flexible working has improved staff loyalty, commitment, morale and productivity. Service hours have been extended to meet the demand of Saturday Lottery draws. Camelot’s flexible work policies are based on the results of a Mori poll distributed to all managers.The report claims firms offering a range of employment options including part-time work, job sharing and freelancing are not only better able to control labour costs but can also meet staff needs for a variety of work patterns.It concludes that companies must integrate flexible work options into their overall strategy and values.Those that have achieved this, such as BT, IT company AIT and Camelot, benefit from much higher performance levels than competitors, it says.Carol Savage, managing director of flexible working consultancy The Resource Connection, agreed with the findings.“Flexible working allows you to find the best staff because it offers you access to a wider pool of talent. It also helps with retention because it allows employees a say in how they work as well as satisfying their employers’ business goals,” she said.www.tomorrowscompany.com Previous Article Next Article Camelot finds a winning line with jobs flexibilityOn 8 Aug 2000 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

Ex-Ohio State Basketball Coach Quotes “Truckin’” In Press Conference After Being Let Go [Watch]

first_imgThe lyrics from the Grateful Dead‘s “Truckin,” while admittedly a bit cliche, aren’t a bad description of Matta’s tenure at Ohio State. When he took the job during the 2004-2005 season, Ohio State was ineligible for the postseason due to NCAA infractions, but Matta helped guide the school’s basketball program in the right direction. He went 337-123 overall, winning at least 20 games in all but one season, and brought teams to the Final Four in 2007 and 2012. Ten of his former players went on to be selected in the NBA Draft. However, the team has struggled in recent seasons.According to the school’s athletic director Gene Smith, the decision to part ways with Matta was mutual. “We weren’t winning the recruiting battles,” Smith said. “As we started talking about it Friday, the flow of the conversation took me to the realization as I said to him, ‘This might be the time to make a leadership change,’ and he agreed,” mentioning that he was “trying to get healthy.”Who knows, maybe he’s just super stoked on the top-notch shows Dead & Company is churning out this summer and wanted to ditch the recruiting circuit and jump on tour instead. If that’s the case, let the record show we’re all about it–follow that golden road, Thad! See you on Shakedown.[h/t – USA Today] On Monday afternoon, The Ohio State University made news in the sports world by firing their head men’s basketball coach Thad Matta. In a statement regarding his parting of ways with the Ohio State basketball program, Matta referenced a “great song” with a familiarly grateful message. “This has probably been the greatest 13 years of my life,” remarked Matta, “If you wanted an exact thought of where my emotions are, there’s a great song that says, ‘Sometimes the light shines brightly on me, other times I can barely see. Lately it’s occurred to me what a long, strange trip it’s been,” the ex-Buckeye mused with a restrained smile.last_img read more
