Previous Article Next Article Pay is just part of equation for happy workersOn 3 Sep 2002 in Personnel Today Pay is only marginally more important than the working environment when itcomes to creating job satisfaction. Twenty-one per cent of employees believe salary is the most important aspectof job satisfaction, compared with just over 20 per cent of staff who highlightenvironment as key to enjoying their work, according to a survey by GoJobsite. In all, 18 per cent of the 300 job seekers polled during July 2002 reportthat job satisfaction results from being set challenges, closely followed bycareer progression on 15 per cent. Respondents also think interaction with colleagues is important, with 12 percent highlighting this as an issue, while 8 per cent report that trainingavailability is vital to job satisfaction, and 6 per cent feel fun is a vitalingredient. Jackie Jones, GoJobsite’s HR manager, believes the findings show employerscannot depend on offering a good wage alone to create a satisfied workforce. She said: “More and more people are battling for the positions that paythe best for their skills and experience, but there are still people out therewilling to compromise and settle for somewhere that they feel comfortableworking for, that challenges them, and that offers the right routes forprogression.” www.gojobsite.co.uk Comments are closed.

The dogs flew from Puerto Rico to New Jersey before arriving in Binghamton just after noon. She said most of the dogs came from high-kill shelters, so her staff is thrilled to give them a new lease on life. BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — The Broome County Humane Society rescued seven dogs from Puerto Rico Tuesday after recent, devastating earthquakes. “We just want to make sure that everybody has a second chance and can try to find their forever home.” Broome County Humane Society Shelter Manager Amberly Ondria said, “A lot of the dogs have come from either families that can’t take of them anymore because of the natural disaster or they may have been strays and they found there way into the shelters so now they’re evacuating those shelters to be able to give these dogs a second chance so they don’t have to go through euthanizing many of them.” “When a natural disaster hits you need help no matter where it comes from, I mean people support here when there’s problem so it’s only fair for us to support other people,” said Ondria. The shelter doesn’t have a date when the dogs will be up for adoption yet, but says it’s the local community support that makes rescues like this possible.

The great T20 XI that never was: Historical cricketers who would have loved shortest form | Cricket News
– Advertisement – Graeme Pollock (South Africa)Pollock’s Test career, which was ended at the age of 26 by South Africa’s exile from international cricket, was already a great one. In his 23 Tests he had scored 2,256 runs at an average of 60.97. His off-side play was elegant and the fact that he was a stroke-maker always gave the bowler hope that they might end up having the better of him, but few did. In 1974 he scored the first double-hundred in List A cricket, with his unbeaten 222 remaining one of the highest individual scores in that form of the game to this day.Zaheer Abbas (Pakistan)By the time he retired, the man universally known as ‘Zed’ was renowned as one of the most elegant players of all time and the first – and so far, only – batsman from the subcontinent to score a hundred first‐class centuries. His ODI record was superb, averaging 47.62 at a strike rate of 84.80, and he was the first player to score three successive centuries in that form of the game. To put that into context, the overall strike rate in ODI cricket over the course of his career was just 70.60 – a far cry from the exaggerated scoring rates of modern times – so he was scoring 20 per cent faster than the average batsman over that period.Denis Compton (England)Compton was possibly the first ‘film star’ cricketer, with looks to match his talent on the field. As a batsman he had all the strokes, and memorably played his famous sweep shot to regain the Ashes at The Oval in 1953 after they had been in Australian hands for 19 years. The following year, he struck his highest Test score of 278 against Pakistan at Trent Bridge, which included 173 runs between lunch and tea on the second day – still the record for the most runs by an individual in a single session of play in a Test. He could bowl, too, taking 622 first‐class wickets with his left‐arm wrist‐spin. – Advertisement –

A Roman Catholic priest in the Detroit area has taken aim at his parishioners in a bid to maintain social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic, using a squirt gun to shoot holy water. He wore a mask, face shield and rubber gloves as further precautions against spreading the coronavirus.Photos of Reverend Timothy Pelc shooting holy water into car window at Easter have gone viral and are sparking online memes. The photos of the priest at the church in Grosse Pointe Park were taken at Easter but have recently gone viral and have inspired memes online. One shows the 70-year-old priest amid the fires of hell directing the squirt gun at devil-like figures.The priest said he was concerned about what the Vatican would think of his holy trigger finger, but so far, the Pope has been mum.Pelc says he needed to find a way to continue a tradition of blessing Easter baskets despite the pandemic. One photo shows Pelc standing behind a car with its hatchback door up, shooting water at a basket of flowers. He said he has a “pretty wacky mind and pretty accepting congregation”.Despite the humor, the church does take the pandemic seriously, Pelc said. Parishioners have tied blue ribbons on trees at the church for each person who has died of Covid-19 in Michigan. That number is now approaching 5,000.
