Recruitersneed to acquire new skills and become relationship managers if they are toovercome current inefficiency and be truly effective.Thatwas the message given by consultant Alan Whitford last week at a two-dayRecruitment Summit attended by UK and US agency chiefs in New York.Describingrecruitment as a “hiring experience, not a hiring process”, Whitfordwarned that employers must sharpen up their act, particularly online, if theywant to attract and retain the best talent. Hewas dismissive of the contribution HR is making to recruitment, arguing thatjobsites such as Totaljobs.com and monster.com know more about employees andcandidates than employers. He said the future is all about using provenrecruitment methods combined with advances in technology to collate data andtrack people.Hesaid it can take between one and four months to fill vacancies in the UK andthe internal costs of recruitment were notoriously high.Whitfordsaid the internet will improve hiring efficiency in terms of speed and cost,but only if the right tools are used. He sees the internet enabling employersto rethink the structure and systems around candidate flow and providingbusinesses with more scale and reach. Intranetsoffer access to vital company information and processes, he said, and whenlinked to solid candidate management systems, provide opportunities to lowercost-per-hire and shorten the time to fill posts.Asurvey by the US-based Forrester and Corporate Leadership Council shows that100 per cent of large organisations are using the internet to post jobs onlineand 74 per cent of respondents are using some form of advanced online CV miningor intelligent search tools.ByJane KingWhatHR needs to know–Recruiters can increase productivity and offer a better service to linemanagers by developing relationships with candidates online–Company branding on corporate websites and targeted candidate marketing are theway forward –Recruitment advertising should first sell the brand; second, highlight what thebusiness does,; third, emphasise the attractions of working there; and finallyexplain what the job is www.forrester.comwww.hire.com Recruiters must sharpen their actOn 22 Oct 2002 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.
Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York An Inwood man has admitted to sexually abusing a teenager who worked for him and then trying to have the victim killed so that the victim couldn’t testify against him in court three years ago.Daniel Miller pleaded guilty Tuesday at Nassau County court to charges of criminal sexual act and conspiracy. He also pleaded guilty to grand larceny for stealing more than $206,000 in a check scheme.Prosecutors said the 47-year-old man, who owns Botanica, a religious supply store on Mott Street, gave the victim a cup containing a liquid mixed with Lorazepam, an anti-anxiety medication, and told him to drink it on Jan. 3, 2012.After he was arrested three months later, Miller’s family helped him concoct a $15,000 murder-for-hire plot, but an informant tipped off investigators before they could hire a hit man to make the victim’s death look like a robbery, authorities said.Miller’s mother, Mary, a secretary at a local high school, had stolen the personal records of the intended victim from the school in an attempt to facilitate the plot, prosecutors said. Mary and Miller’s sister, Ann, both pleaded guilty to conspiracy in 2013.In addition to the sex crime and attempted hit, investigators also found that Miller was using shell companies he created to defraud three check-processing companies out of a combined $140,224 in 2009 and 2010, prosecutors said.Those same years, he also used fake checks from nonexistent companies to con $66,180 worth of merchandise out of two companies, one of which furnishes office supplies and the other being a computer supply firm, authorities said.Judge Angelo Delligatti is expected to sentence Miller on June 4 to nine years in prison and 10 years of post-release supervision. Prosecutors had asked the court to sentence Miller to a maximum of 18 years.
Two of the country’s top corruption watchdogs have given the new leadership of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) a red mark for performance in the first half of 2020, citing poor enforcement against special crimes and the many controversies embroiling the commission.June marks the antigraft body’s sixth month under the leadership of chairman Comr. Gen. Firli Bahuri since the police general was installed in December 2019 by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo.“The KPK is entering its bleakest days,” the Indonesia Corruption Watch (ICW) and Transparency International Indonesia (TII) wrote in their joint report on the KPK’s performance under Firli, published Thursday. The ICW and TII found that the KPK had significantly declined in its efforts to enforce the Corruption Law under Firli’s chairmanship, recording only two operations between January and June to arrest graft suspects. In comparison, the KPK launched five operations in the same period last year.Both operations were launched in January, which netted Saiful Ilah, the regent of Sidoarjo in East Java and General Elections Commission (KPU) commissioner Wahyu Setiawan in two separate cases.The watchdogs also highlighted that the antigraft body had yet to arrest several suspects on its most-wanted list. Among them are Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) politician Harun Masiku, who is suspected of bribing Wahyu and Samin Tan, the owner of coal miner Borneo Lumbung Energi who is wanted for allegedly bribing several House of Representatives members in the Riau-1 coal-fired steam power plant (PLTU Riau 1) case. The ICW and TII also noted that the KPK had not progressed in its investigations of at least 16 high-profile cases that incurred trillions in state losses, including the 1998 Bank Indonesia Liquidity Support (BLBI) bailout case and the 2001 electronic identity (e-ID) card procurement case.The watchdogs’ report also highlights several blunders the KPK in its investigations, including its first operation of the year in late May that involved the arrest of a state official at Jakarta National University (UNJ) for attempted bribery of several officials at the Education and Culture Ministry.The KPK was criticized at the time for its hastiness in transferring the case to the police, as well as its reluctance to develop the case further to net bigger fish.ICW and TII lamented the blunders, saying that “the law enforcement instrument is a vital part of creating a deterrent effect against corruptors”.Read also: 100 days of blunders: Watchdog slams new KPK chairman’s performanceThe report further notes the KPK’s lack of a new strategy in preventing state losses from corruption, despite Firli’s oft-repeated claims that deterring corruption was his primary strategy.The KPK had stagnated in its programs to prevent graft in strategic sectors like politics and natural resources, the report said. Moreover, the KPK’s lack of coordination with other law enforcement authorities and regional administrations had also impeded its corruption prevention efforts.Meanwhile, several controversial actions had marred the KPK’s efforts, including the dismissal of Rossa Bekti who had led the investigation on the KPU bribery case. The report also cited the antigraft body’s reluctance to update the notices of investigation (SPDPs) on its website.In particular, the watchdogs lambasted the newly established KPK supervisory board, whose duties include approving or rejecting wiretapping and search-and-seizure warrants.The report deems the board “ineffective” as it had yet to look into the many public complaints filed against members of the KPK leadership.”The [KPK’s poor performance] cannot be separated from the series of attempts to weaken the KPK by the President and the House of Representatives through the past year, starting from the nomination of new leaders with political interests to the efforts to curb the KPK’s authority [through the revised KPK Law],” ICW and TII said in their report. “[These] measures are beginning to show their results: the KPK is no longer trusted by the public.”Read also: Indikator poll shows dip in trust, high health focus for govt’s COVID-19 responseThe watchdogs urged the KPK to improve its performance by being “more objective and independent” in prosecuting cases and ramping up graft prevention efforts.Responding to the report, KPK acting spokesman Ali Fikri said on Thursday that the commission appreciated the criticisms, and that it had been hard at work this year.According to the KPK, it had launched 30 investigations this year that implicated 36 suspects and recovered at least Rp 63 billion (US$4.5 million) in state losses from fines, restitution fees and seized assets.“We have also detained 27 suspects,” Ali said in a statement.He stressed that the KPK had continued to work on preventing corruption, such as by evaluating the government’s preemployment card program and urging state officials to file their wealth report.Topics :

Rafael Benitez’s attempts to improve Chelsea’s form have suffered a setback after goalkeeper Petr Cech was forced to withdraw from international duty with the Czech Republic with a finger injury. Interim boss Benitez’s bid to improve his record of 10 wins in 21 matches in charge continues with the Barclays Premier League clash at home to Wigan on Saturday could take place without his first-choice goalkeeper. A statement on the club’s official website read: “Petr Cech is returning to Chelsea due an injured finger and will not take part in Czech Republic’s international fixture on Wednesday. The injury will be assessed at Cobham by the club’s medical department.” Press Association While Ross Turnbull could be required to return in goal, having deputised last month when Cech had a groin problem, the managerial status quo remains – though former boss Jose Mourinho has been linked with a summer return to the club. Benitez returned to his family home on the Wirral for brief respite following Chelsea’s 3-2 Premier League loss at Newcastle on Saturday, a result that left the Blues with three wins in 10 matches. That, coupled with the unravelling of Mourinho’s reign at Real Madrid and his enduring popularity in west London, led to suggestions Roman Abramovich would turn to the self-titled Special One. After the dream scenario of Pep Guardiola being drafted in ended when the former Barcelona head coach was appointed by Bayern Munich, speculation of a return for Mourinho heightened. It would be a popular appointment, but for now Benitez remains in place until his current contract ends this summer. Chelsea remain third in the table and on course to fulfil Benitez’s brief of Champions League football in 2013-14.
Published on October 9, 2019 at 10:23 pm Contact Eric: [email protected] | @esblack34 Eric Coley started to doubt his decision. It was weeks after the high school senior committed to Syracuse and, despite all signals indicating otherwise, Coley worried he jumped the gun and committed just to get the recruiting process over with. People around him began to question whether or not he committed to the Orange only because his stepfather, Vinson Reynolds, coached there.During that time, Coley came upon one passage of the Bible involving Paul the Apostle’s shipwreck on Malta. One of the places Paul travels to after leaving Malta is Syracuse, a city on the island of Sicily. For Coley, it was a sign that he’d decided right.“After that I just knew, right there and then, I made the right choice,” Coley said. “I got that confirmation, I was like ‘alright.’ I just wanted to make sure I’d made the right decision.”After redshirting during 2017, Coley played in six games and made six tackles as a redshirt freshman. He’s remained a backup this season, serving as a fill-in at both safety positions. But he’s pushed through his limited playing time, staying ready for when players ahead of him suffer injuries. This season, despite not starting a game, the redshirt sophomore is fourth on the team with 22 tackles, third in pass breakups and is one of five Syracuse (3-2, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) players to record an interception. His path to production wasn’t linear, but in his third year at SU, Coley is finally making an impact.“You look at his development, it’s one of the things that you get a lot of pleasure (out of) as a coach,” Syracuse head coach Dino Babers said. “Not only his on-field development but his physical development.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textEva Suppa | Digital Design EditorColey estimates he’s gained about 15 pounds since his freshman year, when he was more of a “chicken with their head cut off” than a football player, he said. During SU’s summer training camp prior to his freshman season, Coley and his fellow third-stringers were clueless when they were called onto the field, behind on reads and the speed of practice.He’s also been forced to play different positions throughout his three years at Syracuse, first starting at free safety before playing strong safety last season. He’s seen time at both this season due to injuries to both Andre Cisco and Evan Foster, SU’s starting safeties. What was at first a difficult transition has become second nature for Coley, who’s been vital as a versatile defensive back for the Orange.“There are some times when I could be lined up on the field and I’m sitting there like, ‘wait a second, I gotta be lined up over here,’” Coley said. “I’ll forget that I’m playing one of the positions.”Coley didn’t start playing defense until his final year of high school, when he began playing rover in addition to running back at Fayetteville-Manlius High School. He had moved to New York during the middle of his junior year, when Reynolds was hired as SU’s defensive line coach.“What I need to get better on, (most people) probably wouldn’t tell me to my face,” Coley said. “He’s not afraid to tell me and be real. You want that, at the end of the day, you don’t want anybody to steer you wrong.”The first game of Coley’s senior season was in the Carrier Dome for the Express Mart Kick-Off Classic, in which he ran for 218 yards and recorded three touchdowns. One of the “coolest” experiences of his life, Coley admitted how much the atmosphere he felt that day influenced his decision to ultimately commit to Syracuse.Eva Suppa | Digital Design EditorHe’d have to wait a few years to play a meaningful role in another game at the Carrier Dome. The best game of Coley’s Syracuse career came a few weeks ago against Western Michigan, at the peak of SU’s rash of defensive back injuries. With Cisco already out with a lower-body injury, Antwan Cordy started at free safety before also suffering an injury that forced him out of the game.That paved the way for Coley, who entered in the second half. The redshirt sophomore finished the game with four tackles in the fourth quarter alone, capping off his performance with an interception on WMU’s final drive, the first of his career. The pick was “surreal” for Coley, who received a number of congratulatory texts from former high school coaches after the game. He fell down untouched after seven yards, earning himself some jabs from Babers and his teammates.“I think he would’ve had a touchdown if he’d have went to the left, but oh well,” Babers said after the game. “He’s gonna have to live with that. I’ve got to get a replay for that one so I can keep it on my phone, if he gets out of line.”Coley earned the most playing time he’d ever received last week against Holy Cross and finished third on the team with a career-high six tackles. To stay engaged on the sideline during games he wasn’t expected to play in, Coley used to keep his helmet strapped and paid attention to defensive play calls. Now, he’s playing in those games.“You make the right decisions, you do everything right off the field, then things will go right on the field,” Coley said. “You just have a peace that everything’s gonna be okay at the end of the day as long as I do what I’m supposed to do.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+

Chef Martin AndersonSure go on have a wee bit of cake, it’ll do you no harm!A nice fresh scone with jam & cream , a traybake , cupcake , muffin or wadge of red velvet, warmed brownies, melting ice cream & even more chocolate sauce, homemade apple crumble & lashings of custard – the list is endless.The tradition of eating dessert, something sweet, a sugar boost or just any excuse at all to have cake has been around since records began.by chef Martin AndersonWild berries, fruits & honey were the first hint of sweetness in our lives and with the discovery of sugar desserts made a grand entrance.Our French cousins really excelled at the art of pastry with the finest pastry & dessert chefs in the world originating from France, real butter, real chocolate and litres of fresh cream !!Personally I’m an apple pie & ice cream kinda guy – fresh cream or custard doesn’t do anything for me.My aunt Eileen makes the best apple pie you’ve ever tasted, real apples, cinnamon and a crusty crunchy pastry. Warmed through in an oven none of this microwave carry on to make the pastry soggy.Now there’s a tip for you. Serve apple crumble fresh from the dish when you make it but apple pie is best served a day later. This allows the pastry to cool and retain the flavours of the apples. Remember though to make sure it is well cooked…. as Mary Berry says – no one likes a soggy bottom.Not all desserts have to be rich & exotic though. Something as simple as fresh fruit folded with whipped cream and crushed meringue can make a wonderful after dinner treat and is cheap and easy to make .There are so many desserts on display in stores, the good, the bad & sometimes the ugly, it’s hard to beat making your own sometimes .Take a visit to a real bakery if you live near one. Try a fresh donut, cream slice, ask do the make pavlova, even a lemon meringue pie, so tasty.There are also muffin mixes available if you wish to go the sneaky route. I have tried these but actually poured the mix into a Swiss roll tin and made one large muffin , great for cutting into tray bakes , have a go and see how you get on , there will be tubs of icing somewhere on the shelves too, great for topping them off.Here is a simple wee dessert for you to try , use fresh strawberry as the are in season now and will be bursting with flavour , make sure you follow the instructions of you will end up eating this with a straw !!Next week ………The Art of Parties !! Red berry terrineThis is a simple and easy dessert.You will need.1 packet of Red jelly , strawberry for this recipe500mls of low fat yogurt.200gs of strawberriesYou will also need a loaf tin lined with cling film, make sure you don’t have any wrinkles in the cling film.Method.Make the jelly using ¼ of the boiling water required; allow to cool until just warm.Chop your strawberries or crush them with a fork.Mix the berries with the yogurt and then add the jelly mix, stir gently.Pour into your lined tinAllow to set for 12 hours in the fridge .Turn out and decorate with whipped cream and fresh berries, slice as required.This is so simple and will keep for up to 3 days in the fridge, but it will be gone before it goes out of date.
