Council mediation initiative cuts cost of work disputes

first_imgA new initiative to combat harassment, discrimination, victimisation andbullying at Bradford Metropolitan District Council has seen a dramatic fall informal complaints and tribunal applications. Bradford MDC HR director Vanda Rodgers and head of service Val Grant, haveintroduced a mediation scheme which focuses on resolution rather thancomplaints. The Employee Advisory and Mediation Service uses fully trained andaccredited advisers to listen to employees and help them explore the availableoptions and possible consequences. Advisers can also help employees identifywhere to get specific advice on these options. It offers employees the option of mediation as an informal alternative forresolving conflicts. Mediation relies on all those involved being willing toparticipate and to acknowledge that a solution is required. Importantly, neither advisers nor mediators ever make recommendations; thesolution is reached by the parties themselves. Rodgers said: “We want to create a resolution culture instead of acomplaints culture. With the bureaucratic procedures, control is taken awayfrom the employee and an investigation can take a long time and involve manypeople.” She pointed out that the operating costs of investigating a complaint canmount up. “The employer is expected to get on a white charger, save thevictim and punish the perpetrator. But this doesn’t always happen and theneveryone loses,” she said. Rodgers said the scheme has proved “very successful”. In the firstsix months 28 employees used it and, of those, 26 employees resolved theirproblems without needing to proceed down a formal complaints route. There are currently six advisers. Each has had six-weeks’ training to gain aqualification accredited by the Open College Network. A new recruitmentcampaign is aimed at increasing this number and is attracting a lot of interestfrom employees. By Michael Millar Related posts:No related photos.

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailBen Gabbe/Getty Images(NEW YORK CITY) — Racecar driver Danica Patrick will be the first-ever female host of the ESPYs.Patrick told Good Morning America earlier in the day that she was flattered to be asked.Past hosts have included former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning, Justin Timberlake and Samuel L. Jackson.“This is such a huge honor. At the end of the day, I love a challenge and I love sports, [and] those are two things that come together to host the ESPYs,” Patrick said. “It’s our only show! So, I love it, I love meeting all the different people and hearing all the stories. I truly leave the ESPYs every year and think to myself, ‘I am so inspired, I feel like I suck.’ Because everybody has such a great story. I want to be one of those stories!”The ESPYs are an annual event meant to recognize athletic achievements and other sports-related moments from the previous year. This year’s show will take place on July 18 and will be broadcast on ABC. Patrick told “Good Morning America” that she has her fingers crossed that she’ll be able to make her fellow athletes laugh during the show.“Hopefully somebody can help me write a good joke!” she said. “[But] at the end of the day, it’s about honoring those who have had an amazing year.” Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Kingsmill enters sandwich thins market

first_imgKingsmill has this morning launched a new range of sandwich thins – coupled with the announcement of an £8.4m investment at its bakery in Glasgow.Kingsmill Sandwich Thins are square, pre-sliced thin rolls, available in both white and 50/50 varieties.Kingsmill, owned by Allied Bakeries, said the launch was to capitalise on £30m-worth of growth in the sandwich thins market and it apes the move by Warburtons into the sector some years agoJanene Warsap, head of Innovation at Kingsmill, said: “Our in-depth research shows that consumers want both variety and healthier alternatives when it comes to bakery. Kingsmill Sandwich Thins, which have 99 calories each, are an easy way to make delicious sandwiches or snacks, such as mini-pizzas or dip accompaniments that all the family can enjoy.Infrastructure“Not only are we investing in our bakery infrastructure to build capacity and distribution, but we are also committing £5m over two years to a significant and sustained marketing campaign, including TV and shopper marketing, which demonstrates our belief in sandwich alternatives as the growth engine for bakery.”The RRP is £1.29 for a pack of six thins and they will be available in store from September.Chris Longbottom, from Kantar Worldpanel, added: “As a nation we eat 5.1 billion sandwiches a year – seven times more than our next favourite food, pizza. However, people are seeking out lighter alternatives and more variety from all their meals and snacks, which is evidenced by the staggering growth experienced in sandwich alternatives. In fact, we’ve seen nearly £30m of value growth in sandwich alternatives come from incremental sales alone – a level of growth that is far outpacing the growth rate of plant bakery overall.”last_img read more

University announces Sister Norma Pimentel as 2018 Laetare Medal recipient

first_imgNotre Dame will award Sister Norma Pimentel — head of the Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley — the 2018 Laetare Medal, the University announced in a press release Sunday.Each year, Notre Dame awards the Laetare Medal to an American Catholic “whose genius has ennobled the arts and sciences, illustrated the ideals of the Church and enriched the heritage of humanity.”According to the release, both of Pimentel’s parents immigrated from Mexico to the United States and she spent much of her childhood traveling between the two countries. After completing her final vows and entering the Missionaries of Jesus, she worked closely with immigrants, who were often brought to the sisters’ convent.Pimentel said this experience shaped her understanding of her faith in concrete ways.“Scripture comes to life and our faith becomes flesh,” she said in the release. “It is not until you find yourself in front of the face of the immigrant child or mother that you will understand this. It is a moment of realizing we are all one human family.”Since 2008, Pimentel has directed charitable programs for the Diocese of Brownsville, Texas, including “emergency food and shelter, housing assistance, clinical counseling and pregnancy care to all four counties in the Rio Grande Valley.”University President Fr. John Jenkins said Pimentel has lived out the call to recognize Christ in the marginalized through her work with refugees and migrants.“Jesus said, ‘when I was a stranger, you invited me in.’ Sister Norma Pimentel has given her life to welcoming Christ in the immigrant and refugee,” Jenkins said in the release. “In awarding her the Laetare Medal, Notre Dame celebrates her witness of seeking and generously serving Christ in the most vulnerable.”Pimentel said in the release that she was grateful to receive the 2018 Laetare Medal.“I am truly honored to receive this award,” she said. “This year’s Laetare Medal brings forth the cries of the suffering for the world to hear. I would like to thank the University of Notre Dame for this recognition and for being a voice for immigrants in our midst.”Pimentel will be awarded the medal on May 20 at commencement.Tags: 2018 Commencement, Commencement 2018, Immigration, Laetare Medal, Sister Norma Pimentellast_img read more
