Previous Article Next Article Roads are flooded, trains are disrupted and another fuel crisis looms – it’s no wonder UK staff cite commuting as their main cause of stress. Meetings cancelled, skeleton staff in the office – the recent few weeks have been a nightmare for businesses as employees have struggled to get into work.The chaos and disruption hit companies across the country as the commuter’s journey to work became the sort of epic that makes for adventure fiction.Floods caused about 200 partial or complete road closures, and a combination of the weather and repair work closed key parts of the nation’s railways. In the background, the threat of renewed picketing of fuel depots prompted queues at petrol stations.Personnel managers have enough to worry about with the ever-pressing search for skills. Now there is the worry that these skilled staff cannot reach the workplace.Derrick Ahlfeldt, senior vice-president HR management, Visa International, said the commute to work was stressful enough for many British workers and recent flooding and train problems had only added to the stress.”When people work hard all day, the last thing they need is to expend as much time and effort getting to and from work. This places an unacceptable burden on both commuters and their organisations.”Yet last week’s travail probably caused less harm to companies than the cumulative effect of week in, week out delays and gridlocks in transport.A remarkable finding from a recent report by the International Stress Management Association indicated that commuting is more stressful than work itself.Employees were asked which activity caused them most distress. Rush-hour traffic topped the list, cited by 45 per cent of respondents, followed by work, which came way behind on 34 per cent.”This past week has been abnormal and it is more acceptable because you can deal with it as a crisis,” said Carole Spiers, occupational health consultant. “When it is on a regular basis, there is no let-up.”You experience stress when you have no control – overwhelmingly the feeling of commuters last week. With mergers and demergers, offices are often relocated, and employees have to make choices. “You have to decide whether to upset a partner’s career, the children’s education and the family and friends network or commute. The chances are you will commute,” said Spiers. “There is an expectation of the business that they will do this, but they underestimate the impact it has on individuals’ working capacity. As long as they see them at 9am then as far as they are concerned that is fine.”In practice, the employee is much less able to concentrate and work hard after a two-hour journey and with the same trial awaiting them in the evening. Over time, the individual loses loyalty and commitment, and the company loses people with valuable skills. Personnel managers are in a good position to pick up the early warning signs, Spiers added.Roffey Park Management Institute has long taught business leaders about the importance of placing such human concerns at the heart of decision-making on location and mergers. Last week the institute itself, located in a forest in the middle of Sussex, was marooned without power or telephone contact for a day, and many staff were unable to get in due to fallen trees and floods.”A lot of the research that we have been doing has suggested that issues around travelling are really important,” said senior researcher Caroline Glynn. “Earlier this year, we did a lot of research on work-life balance and we interviewed middle and senior managers – quite a number referred to the stress of travelling. They are not only expected to put in increasing number of hours, but are also again commuting four to five hours a day.”There are two clear lessons from the past few weeks – the UK infrastructure is woefully inadequate, and the time for more home working has come. Last week Microsoft published findings from a survey it commissioned through NOP. This found nearly two-thirds of employees in Britain would be happy to work from home.The International Stress Management Association survey indicated that people could live with such a transition and are comfortable with relying on technology. Will telecommuting provide the answer? Roffey’s millennium research canvassed views of 14- and 15-year-olds and indicated that almost none of them would be willing to commute. Given that this generation has grown up with the Web, we could be seeing huge shifts away from travelling towards virtual working. One typical dayAA Roadwatch reported 300 closures or part-closures of roads, compared with around 100 prior to the floods. Incidents included:Complete closure of about 10 miles of the M25 between 4.30 and 8amClosure of A19 near York.On the same day, Railtrack reported 34 line closures due to flooding. The previous day, 20 miles had been closed for relaying of track. There were also speed restrictions and emergency timetables.Flood closures included: York to DarlingtonDerby to Stoke-on-TrentCrewe to Chesterwww.railtrack.co.uk www.theaa.com By Philip Whiteley Related posts:No related photos.

The introduction of the programme, which is being developed jointly by Bupaand e-learning specialists Brightwave, followed a review of the existinginduction programme. It is expected to reduce the overall time taken for staffto demonstrate competency standards required prior to starting work at thecontact centre. “The existing induction programme did make use of off-the-shelfe-learning materials, videos and paper documents,” says Charlotte Staal,account consultant, learning and development, at Bupa UK Membership. “Employees see this standard approach as interesting but notnecessarily applicable to themselves or our organisation. The bespokee-learning solutions we are developing with Brightwave will use Bupa casestudies. “We believe this will help our employees understand the context andapplication of what is often seen as nice to know.” Key components of the new programme include regulatory training, which willprovide a Bupa-specific context to health and safety, data protection and ITsecurity, a fully interactive simulation of the customer call process, asimulation of a key IT system and a competency-based testing system. The competency tests will provide detailed reporting and feedback onperformance for use immediately by facilitators within the induction programme.www.bright-wave.co.uk Blended puts induction in contextOn 1 Mar 2004 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.
Cambridge University is now in proud possession of its first online tabloid, The Tab.Taymoor Atighetchi, one of the paper’s founders, described the paper as an antidote to “a particularly conservative and dry Varsity.”The Tab is not without its critics. The weekly feature ‘Tab Totty’ has attracted the anger of the CUSU’s Women’s Union, which launched a campaign to have the paper closed down.Despite this, The Tab website is proving to be massively popular. It received 88,000 hits in its first week.According to Atighetchi, Varsity, the independent Cambridge student newspaper, is losing readers to this new rival. He commented, “Colleges are complaining that not enough people are taking the newspaper from porters lodges leaving thousands of copies left for the bins.”Launched on May Day, the Tab is still in its infancy, but its light-hearted and more comic take on the news seems to be providing a welcome service for Cambridge students.
“In this age when by and large the needs of disabled people in public places are reasonably well catered-for and indeed required by legislation, it does seem remiss of Christ Church not to provide for wheelchair access in and out of the meadow via Rose Lane. In 2014, all parts of the University agreed to work within a common framework to promote a consistent approach to providing support for students with disabilities, underpinned by the Equality Act of 2010. This Act requires all universities not to discriminate against disabled students, which includes a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that disabled students are not put at a disadvantage. “We are keen to maintain the calm and pedestrian nature of the meadow, and we are yet to find an option to allow wheelchair access without allowing in cyclists – it is not a bicycle route.” “I accept that the meadow is not strictly in public ownership but by encouraging the public to make use of it and enjoy it, you are surely under some obligation to ensure all can in fact gain access to it equally,” he added. Mr Ridler told the Oxford Mail: “Imagine my frustration and annoyance to find that, while all able-bodied visitors could exit via the narrow turnstile gate, I was prevented from doing so by the small size of this gateway. Ridler, a commissioning editor for Thames & Hudson, has urged Christ Church to re-evaluate the accessibility of the Meadow so that wheelchair users can have proper access and leave through a convenient exit onto the High Street. Christ Church have explained that they are keen to ensure that cyclists are still prevented from entering the meadow, but they have been reviewing the situation for some time. “We encourage Christ Church to address the issue as soon as possible, in the same fashion that we encourage all colleges and departments within our university to be ambitious and proactive in their improving facilities for the disabled community. A regular commentator on disabled access issues across Oxford, Mr Ridler previously spoke out in February 2018 in criticism of accessibility to the new Westgate Centre. He accused planners of negligence for the shopping centre’s lack of practical taxi ranks for disabled people. Oxford local Colin Ridler was forced to retrace his route back through the entrance on St Aldgate’s back to his home in Iffley on Easter Monday. Christ Church treasurer James Lawrie told Cherwell: “Christ Church opens the meadow 364 days a year to the public for free, and it’s much-used and much-loved. We will continue to review the situation because the last thing we want to give is the impression of excluding people. A spokesperson for the Oxford SU Disabilities campaign said: “We are frustrated and saddened by the lack of accessibility throughout this University, including, as this article focuses on, at Christ Church Meadow. We are pleased to hear that Christ Church Treasurer James Lawrie has said the accessibility of the gates in the meadow are under review. “Improvements are continuously being made at Oxford, but much more needs to be done. We will continue to campaign for the much-needed changes at Oxford until equal opportunities for disabled and non-disabled people become a reality.”
LOCKN’ Festival is only a few hours away, and we are bursting with anticipation. In years past, the festival has announced special collaborations, like John Fogerty with Widespread Panic and The Doobie Brothers with String Cheese Incident, or last year’s incredible Mad Dog & The Englishmen set hosted by Tedeschi Trucks Band. This year, besides the special Phil Lesh & Friends lineups on Saturday and Sunday, no special collaborations have been been announced, leaving fans with tons of questions as the festival approaches. LOCKN’ is the home of collaborations, so one can only hope that we’ll get to see some of the amazing musicians from Phish, Ween, My Morning Jacket, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Umphrey’s McGee, Lettuce and more let loose at LOCKN’ and sit in with some of their favorite artists. We’ve been dreaming up what could possibly happen for months, so take a look below, check out some of the possibilities we came up with, and get excited for the first night of LOCKN’ featuring Vulfpeck, Umphrey’s McGee, Ween, and Joe Russo’s Almost Dead.10. The Shady Horns with Chris Robinson BrotherhoodThe Shady Horns seem to be everywhere these days! A healthy touring schedule with Lettuce along with seemingly weekly side-gigs with other bands in need of an expert horn section keeps this duo on the road almost constantly. Everyone from Umphrey’s McGee to Phil Lesh & Friends and Gramatik have used The Shady Horns to augment their sound, and we would love nothing more than to see Ryan Zoidis and Eric “Benny” Bloom sit in with Chris Robinson Brotherhood to add some smooth trumpet and saxophone action to the band’s soulful sound. We got a taste of this combination back in April at Fool’s Paradise, when The Shady Horns joined Chris Robinson for his “Soul Revue” set. Check out full audio from that set below, and get a taste of Chris Robinson with The Shady Horns.9. Charles Bradley with TurkuazTurkuaz have been slowly growing out of the New York music scene for years, honing their craft as they transformed themselves into the power funk masters that they are today. They have an ability to move between genres, moving from funk to soul to r&b and classic rock in one fell swoop. The exciting up-and-coming band is sure to impress when they hit the LOCKN’ stage early Friday afternoon, and, with the “Screaming Eagle of Soul” aka Charles Bradley on site for a set with his Extraordinaires later in the day, it would be awesome to see Charles Bradley get up there with the much younger Turkuaz and rip up a few soulful tunes. Bradley and Turkuaz both have infections energy, and a collaboration between the two acts would be ridiculously fun.8. Jake Cinninger with VulfpeckVulfpeck are capping off their huge breakthrough summer with two shows at this year’s LOCKN’ festival. Booked for both Friday and Saturday, the funky band from Michigan are sure to bring their brand of music and humor that their fans have come to expect from them. Vulfpeck plays right before Umphrey’s McGee on Friday, and a guest spot from fellow Michiganian, UM guitarist, and three time LOCKN’ veteran Jake Cinninger would hopefully make the Vulf feel right at home in Arrington, VA. Cinninger’s guitar prowess is unmatched, and adding his incredible technical skills to songs like “Welcome to Vulf Records” or “Smile Meditation” would make for an excellent start to the weekend.7. Gary Clark Jr. with Tedeschi Trucks BandWhat happens when guitar gods collide? We found out a few years ago when Gary Clark Jr. and Tedeschi Trucks Band played a show together in Los Angeles at the Greek Theatre. Derek Trucks sat in with Clark’s band, Clark sat in with Tedeschi Trucks Band, and both guitarist took ripping solos that echoed into the night sky all night long. With both Clark and Tedeschi Trucks Band on site at LOCKN’ this weekend, we’re expecting a repeat performance that is sure to leave the guitar-loving LOCKN’ faithful with huge smiles on their faces.Watch this video below of Gary Clark Jr. sitting in with Tedeschi Trucks Band during “I Pity the Fool” from the Greek Theatre on 11/1/2014, courtesy of YouTube user blisstanger.6. Gene Ween with Umphrey’s McGeeLast year, before Gene Ween (aka Aaron Freeman) reunited with Ween, he played a set at Summer Camp Music Festival with a band called God Boner (aka Umphrey’s McGee). The set featured Freeman and UM playing Ween classics like “Spinal Meningitis” and “The Grobe”, as well as a spot on cover of “The Stranger” by Billy Joel (at the time, Ween was touring a “Gene Ween Does Billy Joel” project). With Umphrey’s hitting the LOCKN’ stage just before Ween on Thursday night, we would love to see Gener make another appearance with the progressive masters of Umphrey’s McGee.Watch video of the full Gene Ween & God Boner set from Summer Camp 2015 below, courtesy of YouTube user izeoftheworldphotos5. Mike Gordon with Joe Russo’s Almost DeadIn a sense, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead wouldn’t exist without Phish bassist Mike Gordon. Gordo toured with the experimental/indie Benevento/Russo Duo when Phish was broken up, which eventually led him to recruit Joe Russo and Marco Benevento to play with him and Trey Anastasio in the summer of 2006. The shows were part of a co-headlining tour with Phil Lesh & Friends, that would see The Duo open, then play as the backup band to Gordon and Anastasio, followed by two sets of Phil & Friends each night.Lesh was so impressed with Russo’s playing on the tour that he eventually invited Russo to play in his band, and later brought him along to join his new project with Bob Weir, the beloved but short-lived Furthur. Russo was so enamored with the Grateful Dead catalog during this time that he recruited fellow Bustle In Your Hedgerow bandmates Benevento, Dave Dreiwitz (also of Ween) and Scott Metzger, as well Tom Hamilton (his former band mate in American Babies) to start Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, and the rest, as they say, is history.It would only make sense for Gordo to make an appearance with his old cohorts, some ten plus years after he dragged them into this this mess in the first place!Watch the Benevento / Russo Duo with Mike Gordon in Athens, GA on 4/27/2005 performing a 53-minute version of Phish’s “Foam”, courtesy of YouTube user alexsh. 4. Trey Anastasio with WeenTalk about dreams coming true. This collaboration would be a must-see moment for any hardcore fan of either band, as the worlds of Phish and Ween are finally colliding this weekend at LOCKN’. After covering Ween’s “Roses Are Free” since 1997, it’s well known that Phish, specifically Anastasio, are big fans of Ween, and it seems that the members of each band are friendly with each other, having both risen out of the off-center alternative rock scene in the 90’s. Anastasio even went out of his way to publicly ask Ween to reunite while on stage with Phish at Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls, OH last summer, and it seems the message got through to the band, as Ween reunited shortly after Trey’s request.It would be awesome to see Ween play tribute to Trey’s dedication by inviting him on stage to play “Roses Are Free” with his buddies Mickey and Aaron.Watch Phish play “Timber (Jerry)” > “Roses Are Free”, and hear Trey Anastasio ask Ween to reunite on stage (skip to 12:50 to see Anastasio’s request). Video courtesy of YouTube user Bobby Scharff.3. Jim James with Phil Lesh & FriendsJim James is such a dynamic performer, he would be a good fit as a guest with anyone. However, a guest spot with Phil Lesh & Friends on a Grateful Dead classic would be perfection at LOCKN’. The singer’s unique and emotional vocal delivery would make several Dead songs sound excellent. Can you imagine James belting out a soulful “Althea”, or a rockin’ “Scarlet Begonias”? We sure can. Perhaps the best option would be “I Know You Rider”, a song that My Morning Jacket has performed in the past, including a memorable guest appearance by Lesh’s Grateful Dead bandmate Bob Weir at the 2014 edition of MMJ’s One Big Holiday festival.If James saunters out to the front of the stage to take lead during saturday’s Phil Lesh & Friends set, expect fireworks. Jim James does not disappoint, and he gives his all each time he’s out on stage. Even though they are headliners, My Morning Jacket are almost underdogs at this year’s LOCKN’ Festival. A band that has always hovered the line between the jamband and indie genres, My Morning Jacket’s appearance at LOCKN’ should cement them firmly on the side of improvisational rock. We expect James and co. to embrace this fully, and an appearance by Jim James with Phil Lesh & Friends would fit that mold perfectly.Watch My Morning Jacket perform “I Know You Rider” with special guest Bob Weir at their One Big Holiday festival in 2014, courtesy of YouTube user Benjy Eisen.2. Derek Trucks with My Morning JacketWhen the daily lineups for LOCKN’ were released, I’m not going to lie, the Saturday pairing of My Morning Jacket and Tedeschi Trucks Band had me salivating. With all of the potential combinations of artists at LOCKN’ this year, the thought of Trucks, arguably the best guitar player on the planet, and My Morning Jacket, one of the best live modern rock bands, collaborating is almost too much to consider. Trucks’ unique slide guitar playing would sound even better surrounded by MMJ’s Southern Rock/American/Psychedelic vibe. An appearance by Derek Trucks with My Morning Jacket would be a true musical highlight, and well within the spirit of collaboration that LOCKN’ inspires.1. Phil Lesh with PhishThis is the mecca. If LOCKN’ organizers are truly trying to re-create the magic of last summer’s Fare Thee Well concerts, then they better make sure that Phil shows up ready to play on Sunday night. Lesh, who will be performing his second set of the weekend with his Friends earlier Sunday evening, would be a home run special guest with Phish and would create a truly unforgettable moment in the band and festival’s history. Lesh has only performed with Phish once, during a show at the Shoreline Amphitheater on 9/17/99.After last summer’s joyous shows in Chicago that found Grateful Dead fans embracing Trey Anastasio like never before, it would only seem fitting for Lesh to continue the “torch-passing” by sitting in with Phish at the Grateful Dead-leaning festival. This appearance would mark another unifying moment for Phish and Dead fans alike, and we hope it comes to fruition on Sunday night.Watch Phish and Phil Lesh cover “Cold Rain and Snow” on 9/17/1999 at Shoreline Amphitheater, courtesy of YouTube user tdunski.Who do you think will jam together this weekend at LOCKN’? Let us know who you’d like to see play together!
