Building Trust

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Read full article Internal recruiters – A short but hopefully sweet note on how to build trust with your internal customers and the hiring managers within your organisation.Learning the recruitment craft from agency ensures that your recruitment and talent acquisition expertise has a pretty healthy dose of salesmanship to it. It can then become an issue learning when to cut the sales patter and quite simply deliver. Internal customers do not want to be sold to. They want to know that you are on the same team, looking to achieve the same goal and that you want to work together to get there.So in simple terms, how do you build that trust?   CUT. THE. SALESY. BULLSHIT.Not saying don’t sell as you will always have to sell e.g. why you believe someone is the right fit for the position, or why they should choose another angles in a particular talent acquisition campaign etc. – All I’m suggesting is to just cut the fake door-to-door salesman act and back the quality of what you do and how you do it.As recruiters, our edge will come from being able to use whatever means necessary to fill open positions with the best candidates that no one else can find, or building such a level of trust with the best candidates that everyone can find, that when you approach them with an opportunity, they are always prepared to listen. Be the person who knows your market. Build the levels of respect and trust within your sector or industry that if you decide to approach someone, they know they are not simply one of 100 people that you have flicked an automated note to, and that instead they should take the time to listen.Make this your brand in the market and the rest becomes a walk in the park! Build the trust and respect via letting your actions speak for themselves and don’t let the fluff get in the way. Deliver on your word and choose your word carefully.

Decadal Ocean Forcing and Antarctic Ice Sheet Response: Lessons from the Amundsen Sea

first_imgMass loss from the Antarctic Ice Sheet is driven by changes at the marine margins. In the Amundsen Sea, thinning of the ice shelves has allowed the outlet glaciers to accelerate and thin, resulting in inland migration of their grounding lines. The ultimate driver is often assumed to be ocean warming, but the recent record of ocean temperature is dominated by decadal variability rather than a trend. The distribution of water masses on the Amundsen Sea continental shelf is particularly sensitive to atmospheric forcing, while the regional atmospheric circulation is highly variable, at least in part because of the impact of tropical variability. Changes in atmospheric circulation force changes in ice shelf melting, which drive step-wise movement of the grounding line between localized high points on the bed. When the grounding line is located on a high point, outlet glacier flow is sensitive to atmosphere-ocean variability, but once retreat or advance to the next high point has been triggered, ocean circulation and melt rate changes associated with the evolution in geometry of the sub-ice-shelf cavity dominate, and the sensitivity to atmospheric forcing is greatly reduced.last_img read more

Social media

first_imgHome » News » Social media previous nextSocial mediaProperty Drum2nd March 20140656 Views TOP TIPSMake sure your profiles are all 100 per cent complete and similar across all the platforms in use. They must look professional; think about changing them to be themed/branded to your latest promotions, eg “£500 referral fee offered” or “Free mini iPad with every new valuation” etc.Use other media forms such as photos and videos to complement updates as these are proven to gain better engagement/clickthroughs/shares etc. If you are offering a free mini iPad as an incentive then take a picture of it in your office and use it every time you mention this promotion.Use HashTags to increase chances of being found on social media. Hashtags aren’t for only Twitter, they work across Facebook, Pinterest, GooglePlus etc.Interact with other ‘local’ users of social media – Share/like/comment on updates. This will attract interest in your account and if your updates are of interest then a local audience is more likely to be responsive. Research your town/city name on social media and follow trends/hashtags and engage with them. Look out for your town hour, eg #ColchesterHour #DevonHour etc as these usually run weekly and are highly active and local audiences engage with them.When using social media, think about giving a name to the person who you are asking people to contact. Rather than saying, “Call our head office if you have a property to sell”, you will get a better response by “Speak to Tracey in our Cambridge office who is waiting to hear from you and she can help you sell your property”.Study your competitors and take advantage of enquiries they may generate. This doesn’t necessarily mean ‘stealing’, but more so about studying OSLG (Outbound Social Lead Generation) which I’ll explain a little bit later.If your audience faces the same set of problems/question when selling/renting a property then create a FAQ page on your website and share that link on social media.Remember to study best times to update and remember that not all your updates will be seen, especially on Twitter. Repeat an update on a different day/time to increase it’s chances of being seen.Think about running competitions and giveaways specific to social media. Request likes/shares/follows to enter and collection of the prize in person from your agency to allow for photos of the winner receiving their prize.Use social media management software to schedule in updates if you haven’t time to update during the day, evening or weekend.When posting links on social media, try as much as you can to have them pointing to your website. Build content on your agency website by writing blogs, news updates rather than sharing content of third party websites such as Telegraph Property or BBC etc.WHAT IS OSLG?Outbound Social Lead Generation, or OSLG, is where you can look to capture a relatively untapped area of social media. The main action lays in studying your local audience interactions on the theme of your industry: property/homes/house prices etc. By offering help and advice to these individuals which may lay outside your current network/following, you can be engaging with a key target audience and placing your agency right in front of a persons consciousness at a point where they require your expertise the most.As an example, by your agency regularly searching keywords such as ‘annoyed estate agency’ you may stumbled across someone’s Twitter update of, “Can’t believe the estate agency sent round one of their junior members of staff to show our property. So annoyed!” – if reacted to quickly your agency could simply reply, “Hope that your experience of selling your property improves! This month we’ve 20 per cent off our commission rate to cheer you up!”As with any marketing operation on any media platform, be it online or offline, it is important to adhere to three main points:The right message (be direct, clear and think about your clients needs)The right market / audience (usually local)The right method of communicating (study which are the best platforms, topics and hashtags).

Balliol’s University Challenge victors boycott Daily Mail

first_imgBalliol’s University Challenge team, which defeated Wolfson College, Cambridge in the final of University Challenge last night, has decided to “ethically boycott” the Daily Mail in opposition to its “long record of hateful comments about women, minorities and marginalised groups”.Two team members were contacted on Twitter by a Daily Mail reporter between the semi-final and the final, seeking their contact details in order to conduct an interview for the tabloid newspaper and its website.Freddy Potts, a second year historian and member of the winning team, told the reporter: “I have nothing against you personally, but equally I have nothing to say to the fascist rag which employs you.”Another member of the team, the Australian astrophysicist Benjamin Pope, replied on Twitter to the reporter and described the newspaper as a “hateful publication” subject to an “ethical boycott” by the team.Hi! As a team, we won’t be interviewed by the Mail. We know it’s not your fault, but we must ethically boycott that hateful publication.— Benjamin Pope (@fringetracker) April 5, 2017The Mail reporter also contacted Wolfson captain Eric Monkman and members of his team for interview, but received no reply.The boycott comes amidst a growing campaign against the Daily Mail, led primarily by the campaign group Stop Funding Hate. The group, which began in the aftermath of the EU referendum, seeks to lobby companies to withdraw advertisements from the Mail. Balliol team member Benjamin Pope sent a supportive tweet to the campaign:@StopFundingHate keep up the good work!— Benjamin Pope (@fringetracker) April 11, 2017The Balliol team told Cherwell: “While only Ben and Freddy were contacted by the Mail directly, the decision to boycott was arrived at by the whole team in line with our collective ethical values. We are all opposed to the Mail’s long record of hateful comments about women, minorities and marginalised groups”.The Daily Mail initially claimed in an article about the lack of women representation in the final that the Balliol team had “refused to answer questions on female under-representation”, but this was removed after the Balliol team captain, Joey Goldman, complained on Twitter.The Daily Heil decided to frame the principled refusal of @fringetracker and @FJPotts to talk to them in the following way. And they wonder. pic.twitter.com/os3Y8Tdszt— Mouse Aesthetic (@JoeySwearwords) April 10, 2017Whilst noting the team’s concern for the lack of women participation in the final, Goldman went on to complain about the Daily Mail’s “reason” for the boycott, describing the tabloid’s actions as “shameless”.I’m absolutely fuming. What utter bullshit ‘journalism’, the useless rotters.— Mouse Aesthetic (@JoeySwearwords) April 10, 2017Nikhil Venkatesh, the captain of the Corpus Christi team which was knocked out by Balliol in the quarter finals, told Cherwell: “I fully endorse the boycott. The Daily Mail has an awful record regarding journalistic ethics.”“The Daily Mail is itself part of the problem regarding sexism directed at women in University Challenge, and in the media and society more generally.”The Daily Mail have been contacted for comment.last_img read more

Charity benefits from pie maker’s food waste initiative

first_imgPukka Pies has donated over 70,000 pies to under-privileged people as part of its support of charity FareShare.Since joining the scheme in May 2010, Pukka Pies has donated in excess of 30 pallets of packing mis-shapes, which are safe to eat but not suitable for general sale.FareShare is a national UK charity supporting communities to address food poverty and food waste. It provides surplus ‘fit for purpose’ product from the food and drink industry to organisations working with disadvantaged people in the community.“A business of this scale does produce a very small percentage of products, which, while not acceptable to sell, are perfectly acceptable to eat. It may be a case of sauce on the lid or a product that is slightly dented,” said Tim Storer, joint managing director of Pukka Pies.“It is especially pleasing to see these products being used in such a positive manner. I would urge other companies to take a look at this scheme and participate if at all possible.”last_img read more

News story: Porton Down scientists on brink of titanium revolution

first_img FAST-forge is a disruptive technology that enables near net shape components to be produced from powder or particulate in two simple processing steps. Such components have mechanical properties equivalent to forged product. For titanium alloys, FAST-forge will provide a step change in the cost of components, allowing use in automotive applications in automotive applications such as powertrain and suspension systems. The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) in Porton Down has revolutionised the production of titanium by reducing the 40 stage process down to just two steps and potentially halving the cost. Crown copyright.So far, small-scale trials have been carried out, but a new large-scale fast furnace facility jointly funded by Dstl and Kennametal Manufacturing (UK) Ltd has been built and will enable larger components to be produced for testing.Matthew Lunt the Principal Scientist for Materials Science at Dstl said: Titanium’s high strength, light weight and corrosion resistance sees it widely used in defence, in military aircraft and submarines, but its high production costs make it difficult to justify in all but essential areas.Dstl has invested almost £30,000 in the new research project at the University of Sheffield, which led to the development of the new ground-breaking manufacturing process.The announcement comes as Dstl supports the Defence Procurement Research Technology and Exportability (DPRTE), which takes place tomorrow [MARCH 27].The pioneer of this revolutionary technique, Dr Nick Weston said: We’re really excited about this innovation, which could cut the production cost of titanium parts by up to 50%. With this reduction in cost, we could use titanium in submarines, where corrosion resistance would extend the life, or for light-weight requirements like armoured vehicles.center_img Titanium is as strong as steel and half the weight – but around ten times the cost. It is notoriously difficult and expensive to make which limits its wider use.Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said: Our Armed Forces use titanium in everything from cutting-edge nuclear submarines and fighter jets through to life-changing replacement limbs – but production time and costs mean we haven’t always used it. This ground-breaking method is not only faster and cheaper but could see a huge expansion of titanium parts and equipment throughout the military. It is a clear example of how our world-class scientists are working behind the scenes to help our Armed Forces as well as bringing prosperity and security to Britain.last_img read more

News story: Government plans renewed action to tackle hate crime

first_img No one should feel the only way to deal with hateful comments is to develop a thick skin. It was truly shocking to hear the venomous abuse aimed at innocent people just because they look different. During the roundtable I was pleased with the progress social media companies have taken but I am clear we must all go further in tackling this problem and it is something we will address in our updated Hate Crime Action Plan. The action comes after Baroness Williams, the Minister for Counter Extremism, hosted a roundtable with social media companies and charity Changing Faces to discuss what further action can be taken to help protect people with disfigurements and visible differences.During the meeting the minister was given first hand accounts of the abuse individuals have received, both online and offline, and pledged to continue working with social media companies to tackle online abuse.Minister for Counter Extremism Baroness Williams said: Police call handlers will be offered specialist training on how to give hate crime victims the vital support they need when reporting an incident.The programme will help call handlers to effectively identify if a hate crime has been committed and provide a professional and empathetic response for people who may have suffered personal abuse.Money provided by the Home Office will allow for the distribution of training resources to police forces, which will be delivered by the National Police Chiefs’ Council in partnership with Facing All The Facts, which tackles hate crime and hate speech across Europe.It is part of the government’s crucial work to tackle all forms of hate crime, support victims and protect the vulnerable from this horrific abuse. Later this year the government will be updating its Hate Crime Action Plan to provide further measures to tackle the five hate crime strands – race, religion, sexual orientation, disability and transgender identities.Latest official statistics show more than 80,000 hate crime offences were recorded in 2016/17, with hate crime based on religion up 35% on the previous year.Home Secretary Sajid Javid and the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government James Brokenshire will co-chair 2 roundtables to discuss Islamophobic and Antisemitic hate crime as part of our broader work to respond to concerns from within communities.The roundtables will expand on the work being done by MHCLG’s Cross-Government Working Groups on Tackling Antisemitism and Tackling Anti Muslim Hatred. This has seen the creation of a guide to support hate crime victims, a guide to moderate online hate content and ongoing collaboration between the Anti-Muslim Hatred Working Group and IPSO to encourage sensitive reporting.Home Secretary Sajid Javid said: Chief Executive of Changing Faces Becky Hewitt said: Hate crimes are totally unacceptable and have no place in British society. I understand the fear, anguish and anger they can cause. Those who have the courage to report these vile crimes deserve as much support as possible. That is why we have provided funding to give police call handlers expert training to spot the signs and respond compassionately. I will also be asking my Anti-Muslim hate crime and Antisemitism roundtables to identify what more we can do to stamp out hate crime.center_img Secretary of State for Communities Rt Hon James Brokenshire MP said: I look forward to the roundtables on Islamophobia and Antisemitism later this year to help take forward vital work to tackle hate crime at its core. Hate crimes have a devastating effect on both the victim and a wider impact on society as a whole. We are clear that hate crime of any form is completely unacceptable and we are working to ensure the police and our justice system responds effectively to hold perpetrators to account. Changing Faces was incredibly grateful to see how invested the attendees of the roundtable were in understanding what it’s like to live with a visible difference in an online world – Whether it’s abuse, unfair treatment, or a lack of awareness around moderation and reporting inappropriate content and behaviour. It was brilliant to see the constructive commitments of government, policy makers, social media companies and technology companies all of whom have are taking steps to ensure best practise when supporting inclusivity and safety online. We look forward to supporting them however we can.last_img read more
