Employee benefits – Exciting or Borderline Crazy? by Livvy

Another great month rolls by, and so you’re sitting at your desk feeling rather smug about the great team you’ve built – ok, this bit may sound a little bit fictional but you have a great bunch of employees who each perform well and play their part to create a great company culture. In the midst of your satisfied smugness, Janet, one of your best and brightest – approaches your desk with a rather sheepish look on her face and asks for a quick confidential chat. Your mind immediately jumps to resignation – they’re going to leave! Why? What can we do to keep them? Will THAT stop them leaving? You walk into the meeting room ready to hear the worst; however, what you are told is not quite what you expected…

The elusive promotion and how to get there by Livvy

Elusive PromotionSo you’ve been looking at the boss and thinking to yourself “I could do a better job” (sometimes you may even be thinking a chant leader from the Hitler youth would be an improvement…), and feel it’s about time to take that step up? Read on my friend, hopefully this article will assist your quest.

Hanging out is good for your health by Livvy

Hanging outI started in this profession before the internet, databases or twitter. It certainly made some things hard, for example, we were reliant on the neck-top computer, and sourcing came from old school methods – like true headhunting. But it meant that we built a solid foundational relationship with people as we had to go and actually meet them. Imagine my surprise to learn that this is actually good for your health.

We're proud to help educate and inspire today's youth about future options in the ICT Industry. We recently upgraded our sponsorship of ICT-Connect to Premier status; one of only three top level sponsors. We believe this clearly demonstrates our commitment to the industry.
