Despite challenging economic times, the UK & USA currently face severe skills shortages; a recent survey stated that 85% of business said that their inability to recruit the ërightí staff was their number one challenge. The sad fact is that whilst many organisations may officially state that ìour staff are our greatest assetî, many employers put more time & effort into the purchase of a new company car than they do into the recruitment of new or replacement staff! Whilst the average UK salary is approx £28,000; the overall annual cost including taxes, training and holiday cover are estimated at nearer £40,000! Add the costs associated with a recruitment campaign and the importance of getting it right first time become evident. With only 9% of employees currently in their dream job and at any given time an estimated 42% of staff actively considering a change of job, it is clear that, in the UK at least, weíre not very good at what is obviously a poorly delivered business function; effective recruitment. Written primarily for the private sector this book aims to provide simple, yet exceptionally powerful recruiting strategies for non-HR managers. In it you will find essential advice on how to recruit more effectively, both using recruitment agencies and on your own. Tips on how to retain the right staff are provided. Graham Martin has been at the ësharp endí of recruitment for over 25 years and has recruited nearly 1700 people for client organisations and has sat in front of nearly 2000 managers, directors or business owners discussing their recruitment needs. This, Grahamís first book is the distillation of his experience in recruitment from an employers perspective. ìHaving engaged Graham Martin to recruit office juniors to finance and marketing managers for nearly 20 years I am fully aware that he knows what heís doing! His book guides business managers through the labyrinth of recruitment in easy to understand steps. A useful little book that makes so much senseî Clive M Coote MD Vertical Leisure UK

Daft and Marcic's action-first approach turns the traditional learning model on its end. Instead of starting with concepts and moving to application, this text starts with application, an introductory problem or challenge that encourages you to first empty out your ideas so you are ready to understand new ideas and acquire new skills. Each chapter provides a menu of resources for engagement, application, and learning, everything you need to develop the spot-on management skills you'll need to be a successful manager. This new learning philosophy leads you through a seven-step learning process: 1. Manager Challenge, 2. Initial Response, 3. Discover Yourself, 4. Discover Knowledge, 5. Action Learning Exercises, 6. Test Your Mettle, and 7. Personal Skills Log. Shorter, highly-focused chapters take you through each of these seven steps, allowing you to capture the essence and critical points for each topic. The mass of research material has been condensed and focused into discrete learning packages (chapters) designed specifically for engagement. BUILDING MANAGEMENT SKILLS offers a unique new set of Challenge Videos that are specifically designed to help develop your decision-making and thinking skills. After you watch the video challenge you are asked to respond to the challenge by solving the problem, helping you see the relevance of the chapter material and answering the question Why do I need to know this material?. These innovative, decision-making Challenge Videos are also available in CengageNOW. Organized around a new learning philosophy, with new technology and a coherent learning package for you to acquire management skills through an active first do, then learn approach, Daft and Marcic have created a truly unique learning experience with BUILDING MANAGEMENT SKILLS.

An outline of the core principles and strategies required to restore the credibility of the global finance industry Since 2008, the global financial industry has lurched from crisis to crisis, calamity to calamity, resulting in an epic loss of public trust in banking and financial institutions. Rebuilding Trust in Banks argues that this series of disasters have usually been the result failures of leadership and governance, combined with unenforced systems of checks and balances. Often, leaders lose their way, believing their own hype and buying into their own propaganda. The more successful these leaders are initially the greater their self-confidence grows along with the certainty that they’re right. The result is a dangerous hubris with no countervailing power to stop or change reckless, unethical, or self-interested strategies. This book offers a solution, with useful benchmarks for corporate governance and a global perspective. Features effective best practices for ensuring good corporate governance and responsible leadership in banking and finance Written by a renowned expert in corporate governance with more than 40 years of experience, particularly in Asia Intended for corporate leaders and board members in financial companies, as well as regulators, advisors, and students If banks and other financial institutions truly want to rebuild the trust they once enjoyed, this practical and prescriptive guide offers effective best practices that can—and should—be widely implemented throughout the industry.
