We had a very productive discussion about the political situation in the region, and especially about how we might cooperate to help foster peace, and secure the traditional fabric of the whole society in the region.The Hashemite Court has a close relationship with the archbishop’s office, and His Majesty King Abdullah II visited Lambeth Palace last November.Recognizing the traditional Hashemite responsibility for Muslim and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem and the Holy Land and also the needs of international pilgrims from both communities, the archbishop asked the foreign minister to thank King Abdullah for his own and his father’s exemplary role, and to encourage His Majesty to continue this vital service to the common good of both religious communities locally and internationally.

This week’s lettersLetter of the weekOutsourced HR loses personal touchI do not feel that outsourcing the HR function is the way forward (Analysis,9 October), especially not for a small organisation. We have 120 employees –how would you get to know your people? My style is a hands-on, door-always-open approach – walk around, talk to people, listen and learn, not justa voice at the other end of the telephone. Lesley Sales, MCIPD Personnel manager, Petty Wood & Co Business value from graduates Most graduates cite high quality development as a key factor in their choiceof employer. Most graduate recruiting organisations claim to offer outstandingdevelopment. But, two to four years into work, graduates are pouring out ofmany organisations, stating lack of personal development as a major reason formoving on. Samphire Management has conducted research, commissioned by the Associationof Graduate Recruiters, which has shed light on these issues. Despite mostgraduates being happy with their choice of first employer, most were lookingaround for another job. With escalating costs, the issue of retaining graduate managers anddeveloping them so they can make a significant impact on the business hasbecome criticalfor many employers. Our research found there was a wide range of good practice acrossorganisations, indicating that employers could learn a lot from each other.Organisations that meet the 12 challenges are likely to have high retention anda high return on graduate investment. We are now extending this work, and are inviting all leading graduateemployers to take part in a programme, Leaders in Graduate Development 2002.Details are available from me at [email protected] Maguire Programme manager, Samphire Management Personnel mag or feminist rag? I have just read Personnel Today (2 October) and feel motivated to let youknow that I am far from pleased. Despite reading it from cover to cover I can find nothing to highlight thefact that women are badly treated by men in almost every sphere of workinglife. To add insult to injury you even carry an article informing that Ford isincreasing maternity pay. What are you trying to do? Do you not realise that you are a feminist ragfirst and a personnel magazine second? We subscribe to your publication for headlines such as:”Dissatisfaction grows as mothers work longer”; “Women take aquarter of management posts”; “Graduate morale high despite genderpay gap”; “Women still blocked from top jobs and board seats”;”Figures reveal EU North-South split over female HR managers”;”Firms failing to embrace family-friendly policies”; “Femaleacademics earn less than men as pay gap widens in colleges”, etc. I also noticed a previous issue (11 September) was similarly deficient. S Jette Winchester Editor’s response Thank you for your letter which we received on 10 October, although as itisn’t dated I’m uncertain in which decade it was posted. As first we thoughtyou were serious but soon the lingering smell of testosterone on the paper gavethe game away. A good laugh is always welcome in these serious times. Your letter showsthat satire is not dead, even after a century of humourless politically correctranting from feminists and other malcontents. And your signature, “S Jette”,certainly tickled all of us in the office. As most members of the HR profession – and therefore our readers – arewomen, I am sure you will have struck a chord with your assertion thatPersonnel Today gives too much space to the issue of gender inequality.However, you slightly undermined your position when you pointed out that thetwo issues you read most recently had no articles on the subject. We are so stung by your wit that we have decided to change our editorialpolicy. From now on we will completely ignore any news about pay inequality,the glass ceiling and the like. You only have to look at the make-up of boardrooms and the seniorechelons of management in UK organisations to see that men barely get a look inthese days. I, for one, propose to chain myself to the railings of Number 10until men get justice. Noel O’Reilly Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. last_img read more
