Shakespeare and Cyber Security

Shakespeare and Cyber Security by Indy Dhami

Despite official statistics reporting a rise in women having as good qualifications as men in the UK, there is still the notion that payment is different depending on gender.

I have had a few requests from people asking to contribute to this blog. This is the first time that I have accepted though. I think JB (who wishes to remain anonymous) has a strong understanding of what is required to be a great leader and I am happy to have her contribute. Enjoy.

How to Engage your Employees by Martin Blackburn

In episode 3, Martin Blackburn (UK People Director at KPMG) uses his expertise to discuss ‘hot topics’ in HR; engagement and trust and how the two link. 

He considers how the working population mistrust large organisations following the financial crisis, and how millennials view working differently, potentially further decreasing trust levels. Trust links to engagement, and engagement is integral to success. With 5 generations in the workforce, engagement is a top priority for organisations.
