RSF_en December 2, 2020 Find out more Dear Sir, On June 2nd it has been two years since Duško Miljuš, Jutarnji list investigative journalist, has been brutally attacked. His arm was broken and he suffered serious head trauma. That attack by three perpetrators with baseball clubs was at the time characterized by the police as attempted murder. But the police has not succeeded yet in finding the responsible persons who ordered or performed the attack. This is extremely frustrating for Miljuš personally, for Croatian journalists in general and for the independant media, especially those interested in crime and corruption in Croatia. As the main governmental goal is the fight against anti-corruption, journalists dealing with anti-corruption must be protected and investigations of attacks on journalists must be a major priority of the police . Some of our colleagues have been under different kind of police protection for longer periods exactly due to the fact that perpetrators have not been found. The lack of efficiency in police investigations is not a good message for journalists and democracy in Croatia. A thorogh investigation and possible arrest of Miljuš attackers and others who have threatened journalists would create an atmosphere of trust so needed in croatia. Dear Mr. Karamarko, as you have announced the successful results regarding Miljuš investigations several times in the last two years, we question whether there is somebody obstructing that investigation We call upon your professional skill and ethics to do everything possible to make the arrest of Miljuš attackers and send them to court.

Previous Article Next Article Shortlisted team for the easycando Award for e-learning: Personnel Today Awards 2000After the declaration in July 1999 by British Telecom chief executive Sir Peter Bonfield that the firm must become an e-business, the human resources function was one of the first to act. The result was a collaboration with Andersen Consulting to produce an Internet College and in January 2000 – six months after Bonfield’s declaration of strategic intent – the first BT staff were beginning a module in the virtual learning zone, part of an Internet-awareness course.Such is the magnitude of the Internet that what appears to be a “one-size-fits-all” approach to staff training is justifiable. Although the level of the basic Internet Awareness course is too basic for many, the purpose was to ensure that all 130,000 employees were thoroughly familiar with the Internet, a medium in which the company has invested heavily.A survey in August 1999 had revealed that just over half BT’s staff were uncomfortable with the medium.Although much of the information was familiar to employees, many of them found it useful to have the information laid out in a systematic, accessible format. Users also found value in being able to pitch in at a level suitable for themselves, and not always start at the beginning.Some of those grateful for a stronger awareness include senior executives. Frank Douglas, project manager of the Internet College, quips that this is “their last chance to ask stupid questions”.The course is made up of six modules and two further elements – Orientation and Foundation – are due for rolling out next month. The advanced modules – Functional, Expert and Strategic – will follow.BT has increased the number of staff with access to the Internet from 70,000 in summer 1999 to 100,000, and aims to ensure that all 130,000 have access by the end of 2000.BT and Andersen put considerable effort into making the course lively, with interactive features such as quizzes. It also awards a certificate for those completing a module, something highly valued by employees. Despite being voluntary, around 40,000 have completed the Awareness module.Following the establishment of e-Peopleserve by BT and Andersen, an outsource provider of HR services, the modules will be available to staff of other employers. Company fact fileTeam BT HR teamTeam Leader Alan Davis, HR director, BT RetailNumber in HR team FourNumber of employees responsible for 130,000Main achievements With 40,000 having completed the awareness course and positive feedback from users, BT can be more confident that its workforce is more ready for e-business. There is no quantifiable impact on the bottom line as yetJudge’s Comment “There is evidence of top-level commitment and of a thoroughly well researched programme which has been professionally implemented and communicated. Set against the history of technology-based training, when so many excellent programmes were produced and never integrated, this is aimed at the heart of the business and is a topic that is fundamental to the organisation’s survival. That is the way to make e-learning happen. There are arguments for and against making e-learning voluntary. In this case, sufficiently strong motivation is obviously present because 40,000 have already done the programme. People are proud to achieve the certificate” British TelecomOn 19 Sep 2000 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos.

It shows that an increasing number of trade unions are employing specialistorganisers to work on recruitment and recognition campaigns and this isboosting union membership. Over half (56 per cent) of trades unions now employ specialist organisers,compared to only 38 per cent in 1998. This is due, in part, to the TUC Organising Academy, which has providedtrained organisers over the past four years. The research finds that unions with specialist organisers have been morelikely to register an increase in total membership since 1997. Between 1997 and 2000, 65 per cent of unions reported a rise in membershipcompared to only 26 per cent in 1994-1998. www.tuc.org.uk Specialists help unions to attract new membersOn 18 Jun 2002 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.
