Let’s redefine employee engagement in 2016

first_imgIf you feel like you’re in a rut at work, you aren’t alone. A recent Gallup poll found that 67 percent of workers aren’t engaged—or worse, they’re actively disengaged—a number that’s been pretty stagnant for the past 16 years.Somehow, despite the best of intentions, corporate culture has taken a misstep. That’s why it’s time to ditch those well-used annual engagement surveys and redefine how you view and measure employee engagement.Where The Traditional Approach to Employee Engagement Goes WrongWhen a company gets employee engagement right, you see improvements in productivity, satisfaction, and commitment. When it misses the mark, the energy in the room isn’t the only thing that might trend downward.Employee engagement efforts typically follow a cycle: The annual survey goes out, people (hopefully) complete it, results are compiled, a report comes out, and new initiatives are tested until the next survey rolls around. This rarely produces long-term results—and here’s why. continue reading » 73SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (March 14, 2015)–“It was an ugly race on my part, but a great result.” So said Hall of Fame jockey Gary Stevens following Go West Marie’s half length victory in Saturday’s $100,000 Irish O’Brien Stakes at Santa Anita, a race in which the California-bred filly trained by Eddie Truman overcame seemingly insurmountable traffic trouble en route to negotiating 6 ½ furlongs down the hillside turf course in 1:12.90.“I didn’t think she’d overcome that traffic that late in the race,” said Truman. “No shot. Gary was just waiting (to find an opening). Any time, right?…and then when they closed the hole coming across the dirt, what’s he going to do? He tried out, he tried in again, and then, zoom. That’s a race horse. What a heart. She is something.”Off at 7-5 in a field of seven older fillies and mares bred or sired in California, Go West Marie, a 4-year-old filly by Western Fame, paid $4.80, $3.40 and $2.20. Now a perfect three-in-a-row with Stevens up, she came off a three quarter length win down the hill in the Sunshine Millions Filly & Mare Turf Sprint on Jan. 24 and with the O’Brien win, improved her overall record to 18-6-1-5. Owned by Peter Redekop BC, Ltd., she picked up $60,000 for the win, increasing her earnings to $462,520.“Not really what I want to add to my Hall of Fame tape reel,” quipped Stevens. “I was so loaded coming down the hill with so much horse. Talamo’s filly (Demonica) was lugging out prior to crossing the dirt. I thought, ‘I’m going to get a run here, it’s just a question of when I want to push the button.“I could have come out, but Mike (Smith, aboard Velvet Mesquite) was getting out a bit and I chose to stay inside. It was really the wrong decision. I got stopped cold inside the eighth pole and in these off the hill races, you don’t want to get stopped there. Her turn of foot is brilliant and I had enough (of a) spread that I was able to get out without interfering with the horses behind me.”Last after the first half mile, longshot Qiaona rallied wide-out under Rafael Bejarano to nail Velvet Mesquite by a nose for the place. Off at 9-1, she paid $7.20 and $3.20.Velvet Mesquite, who entered the Irish O’Brien with five wins from eight starts down the hillside course, appeared to have a perfect trip under Mike Smith, but was no match for the winner. The second choice in the wagering at 8-5, she finished a half length in front of Bert’s Melody and paid $2.20 to show.NOTE: The winner, who is out of the Swiss Yodeler mare Marie’s Rose, was bred in California by former trainer Summer Mayberry. –30–last_img read more

He’s trying to master both; the guitar travels with him on the road and he’s been known to strum it while studying film. The piano doesn’t exactly fit in the overhead storage bin of the plane so it stays behind.Nurse says he’s not any good yet.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logisticsHis team, however, is making plenty of beautiful music so far in these NBA Finals.The moment has not been too big for Nurse or the Raptors. They lead the title series 2-1 after a 123-109 win over injury-depleted Golden State on Wednesday night, an outcome that puts the two-time defending NBA champions in trouble. The maestro of the best season in Toronto history is a 51-year-old NBA coaching rookie, one who’s making plenty of right moves. “He looks young,” Raptors guard Kyle Lowry said. “But he’s pretty old.”Nurse might have been an unknown to casual NBA fans when he got the job a year ago following the firing of his former boss in Toronto, Dwane Casey. Nurse was an assistant on Casey’s staff, largely credited with running things on the offensive side of the ball. He had good relationships with players, but the task of replacing someone who was the NBA’s coach of the year and got fired anyway was daunting nonetheless.He has handled it with ease.“Each game’s critical, and the next one will be as critical as (Game 3) was,” Nurse said. “So it’s been like that all through the playoffs, and we just got to guard and play who is out there. That’s all we can do.”The guy he’s going against has eight rings already. Steve Kerr won five as a player, has three more from his first four seasons as coach of the Warriors and still very much has a chance at a fourth in five seasons.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ But this is no coaching mismatch.“I’ve watched Nick closely,” Dallas coach Rick Carlisle, the president of the National Basketball Coaches Association, said earlier in the series. “We played against him twice this year. He’s terrific in making adjustments and I love the way he’s approached the entire season. They have set up the entire season to work to get to this point and for a first-time NBA head coach, that’s not easy to do.”For a first-timer, no, it wouldn’t be easy.Thing is, Nurse is no ordinary rookie.He’s won championships — four of them, two in the British league, two more in what’s now called the G League. That’s not the NBA, of course, but there’s a progression that he’s followed, a long slow path that saw him coaching teams most people have never heard of like the NAIA’s Grand View University, Telindus Oostende in Belgium, the Oklahoma Storm of the USBL.“Some pretty remote places,” Nurse said.He got tons of attention for throwing a box-and-one on Warriors star Stephen Curry late in Game 2 of this series. Some would say that’s an unconventional move. Not for Nurse. He spent one season basically full-court pressing the whole time so he could collect the data. He’s been known to count certain shots in practice as 4-pointers, to emphasize the need for proper spacing.He’s part-coach, part-chemist.“Like a laboratory,” Nurse said.The lab on Wednesday night was Oracle Arena. The Raptors survived a 47-point night from Curry and prevailed over a Golden State team without Kevin Durant, Kevon Looney and Klay Thompson. Looney’s season is over. Durant may be back for Game 4. Thompson figures to be back. The Warriors are almost certainly going to get boosts. DA eyes importing ‘galunggong’ anew Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Two-day strike in Bicol fails to cripple transport “Five guys are going to be out there,” Nurse said. “You really can’t worry about that.”It’s still too early to tell whether Nurse and the Raptors can pull this off.But Lowry knows his coach will be ready.“His mind for the game has been special, and the growth throughout the year has been pretty good for him,” Lowry said. “He’s not a first-time head coach — he’s a first-time NBA head coach. But the experience that he’s had in his many leagues and teams that he’s been a head coach before, he’s kind of just kind of stepped up and continued to grow with that.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Duterte wants probe of SEA Games mess Toronto Raptors head coach Nick Nurse speaks at a news conference after Game 3 of basketball’s NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Raptors in Oakland, Calif., Wednesday, June 5, 2019.

Bopanna bats for wheelchair tennis

first_imgBengaluru, Nov 29 (PTI) Tennis doubles player Rohan Bopanna today said that wheelchair tennis was already a big sport in the world, which is reflected in top players like Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic sharing the same locker-rooms with top wheelchair players. “Roger Federer, Djokovic and top wheelchair players – all of them share the same locker-rooms. There is no difference between wheelchair tennis players and the straight players,” he said. “Thats where it shows, how big the sport already is, and million and millions of people are already watching it and supporting it,” he added. Bopanna said holding the All India Tennis Association ranking wheelchair tennis tournament shows interest in this sport. “Holding the wheelchair tennis tournament is a fantastic initiative and big step, which shows the interest people have in it,” he said. Asked what sort of support he would give to promote wheelchair tennis, Bopanna said he would share details of wheelchair tournaments held in different parts of the world. “I am always with them, no matter what support they need. As I am travelling a lot, it will be easier for me to share the details which will be of great help for improving the sport in India,” he said. Earlier, Bopanna announced Indias first AITA ranking Wheelchair Tennis Tournament – tabebuia – which will be played from December 2 to 4 at Karnataka State Lawn Tennis Association. The cash prize is Rs 2.5 lakh and the organisers have raised Rs 14 lakh from various sources including the corporate and individual donors, Sunil Jain, Founder Trustee of Astha, a part of Wheelchair Tennis, said. As many as 40 wheelchair tennis players will participate in the tournament, he said. Jain said the organisers would love to hold an International Tennis Federation tournament with the cooperation of AITA and KSLTA. PTI BDN PDS PDSadvertisementlast_img read more
