Defence chiefs were more concerned about getting the cheapest deal for new Navy supply ships than boosting British industry, a secret document confirms. Thousands of jobs depend on the £1.5billion contract for three Fleet Solid Support ships going to a UK yard, according to unions, MPs and campaigners. But the Ministry of Defence triggered fury by launching a worldwide competition to build the vessels. The tendering process has since been shelved because none of the bidders could meet the budget. A 17-page business case forced out of the MoD by the GMB union, using freedom of information rules, has uncovered the MoD’s priorities when it came to offering firms the chance to bid for the bumper deal. “The contract will be awarded to the compliant bidder with the lowest Whole Life Cost,” it stresses. It points to the existence of a special unit dedicated to seeking cheap shipbuilding deals with companies based abroad. “The Commercially Supported Shipping (CSS) … [Read more...] about Tories DID chase cheaper deal for Navy supply ships rather than protect UK jobs
In May 2016, after months of failing to find a traditional job, I began driving for the ride-hailing company Lyft. I was enticed by an online advertisement that promised new drivers in the Los Angeles area a $500 “sign-up bonus” after completing their first 75 rides. The calculation was simple: I had a car and I needed the money. So, I clicked the link, filled out the application, and, when prompted, drove to the nearest Pep Boys for a vehicle inspection.

It would be temporary, I thought. Plus, I needed to enrol in a statistics class and finish my graduate school applications – tasks that felt impossible while working in a full-time desk job with an hour-long commute. But within months of taking on this readily available, yet strangely precarious form of work, I was weirdly … [Read more...] about High score, low pay: why the gig economy loves gamification

When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but with creatures of emotion - Dale Carnegie.Do you ever experience that business as a whole can be hostile? Maybe you have a boss that doesn’t value you. Or a client that treats you like grime. It has been found that people feel left out, unsung, and neglected at work. And consequently, they suffer. Let’s face it. Business is not always fun. And sure, it’s business. But I think we can certainly develop the business scenery by getting better at one thing: Emotional intelligence.Everyone has heard of it. But what is it? How do you get better at it? And how can you use it to get better at business? This year at World Economic Forum, emotional intelligence (also known as ‘emotional quotient’ or EQ) was ranked sixth in the world on the list of top 10 skill that employees will need to process to thrive in the workplace of the future.In today’s … [Read more...] about Why emotional intelligence is important for professional success
