Our only criterion is that they are `people caring ‘in the widest sense.“The little charities we help, help the old, the young, the ill, the handicapped and the lonely.”This year’s annual flag day takes place on Wednesday 15 June in London, and on Saturday 11 or 18 in most other places.Participating charities keep 70% of all they collect, sending 30% to the Alexandra Rose Day charity. New groups pay a one-off registration fee of £30, and of course participating charities have to provide the volunteer collectors.Collections at supermarkets can be arranged on other dates as well, and house-to-house collectionscan be held from 4 June to 18 June inclusive.The first Rose Day in June 1912 involved 10,000 women selling wild roses in London in honour of Queen Alexandra. It raised £32,000, the equivalent of around £2 million today, “for the benefit of the hospitals and charitable institutions in which Her Majesty is interested.” Since then it has become an annual event specifically to benefit smaller and regional charities.last_img

iT4C matches web designer volunteer in Australia for UK charity

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. The Theatre Royal Stratford East has had its website improved by a professional web designer who volunteered via iT4Communities (iT4C), the national IT volunteering programme. In fact, the volunteer was based in Australia.Silvia Pilotto, senior marketing officer for the Theatre Royal Stratford East explained: “As a theatre we don’t have a lot of budget for things such as website maintenance, so I was looking for a way that we could get the help we needed without having to pay consultancy fees that the theatre could ill afford.”Pilotto found iT4C by searching the Internet, and iT4C was able quickly to locate a relevant volunteer. Jason King carried out an online health check on the Theatre Royal’s website from Australia and made a series of recommendations.“This sort of practical advice was invaluable to us”, said Pilotto, “and although it has not been possible to carry out an accessibility check yet, it is definitely something I plan to undertake in the future”.King also recommended that the theatre take advantage of Google Analytics. “Although we already had a statistical tool, we have found this much more reliable,” added Pilotto.King commented: “Virtual volunteering worked well for me. It was a short, simple and well-defined volunteering project and suited me better to give advice rather than offer practical assistance and it made a nice change to do a website health check for a theatre”.Pilotto concluded: “It may have all been basic stuff, but it was vital that these aspects are addressed, so it was great advice.”www.it4communities.org.uk AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 6 May 2008 | News  36 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis iT4C matches web designer volunteer in Australia for UK charitylast_img read more

Fitch said that the servicer’s assigned ratings and Stable Outlook reflected the company’s experienced senior management staff, enterprise-wide risk environment, compliance protocols and investments in its servicing technology.The additional RPS 3 U.S. residential primary servicer rating was given to PHH for its Alt-A, subprime, and HELOC products as well as for being a special servicer and its specialty closed-end second lien operations.According to Fitch, it reviewed PHH’s financial statements to provide an internal assessment as a company’s financial condition is one of the components on which Fitch servicer ratings are analyzed.”PHH has a robust enterprise risk management hierarchy in place with multiple components embedded in the framework to identify, monitor, and address risk including proactive change management processes, quality assurance, and quality control protocols and a multi-dimensional testing program,” Fitch said. “PHH utilizes a hybrid model for internal audit where oversight is retained among a small group of auditors internally and the bulk of audit work is co-sourced to a third party auditing firm.”In February 2018, the company announced its planned merger with Ocwen Financial Corp. “The companies are currently targeting closing the transaction in the third quarter of 2018.

Senior Advocate Sanjay Parikh appeared for Activist Medha Patekar, who had filed a plea seeking formulation of a “unified-ticketing-system” for migrant workers traveling via trains as well as schemes for providing them with financial support during and post lockdown.Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal appeared for Delhi Shramik Sangathan & another NGO. Before he started apprising the court, Sibal added that “he was not here for any political purpose” but appeared on behalf of interested organisations, wanting to point to relevant statutory provisions under the Disaster Management Act, 2005. He argued that there were certain legalities that must be looked into in light of the crisis surrounding migrant workers looming large.In order to substantiate this, Sibal highlighted the requisite action plan which is paramount to be taken by the National Executive Committee (NEC) whenever there is a disaster vis-à-vis the Disaster Management Act, 2005. This plan, he added, is then approved by the National Disaster Management Authority, presided over by the Prime Minister.Sibal: “Under the DMA, whenever there is a disaster, a national plan should be prepared by the NEC which is then approved by the DM authority presided over by the Prime minister. Minimum standards include shelter, food, drinking water, medical cover and sanitation” The formulation of a national plan by the NEC is elucidated in Section 11 of the DMA, 2005, to be made “in consultation with the State Governments and expert bodies of organisations in the field of disaster management to be approved by the National Authority”- FYI : Section 11 of the DMA, 2005 states,”National Plan.—(1) There shall be drawn up a plan for disaster management for the whole of the country to be called the National Plan.(2) The National Plan shall be prepared by the National Executive Committee having regard to the National Policy and in consultation with the State Governments and expert bodies or organisations in the field of disaster management to be approved by the National Authority.(3) The National Plan shall include—(a) measures to be taken for the prevention of disasters, or the mitigation of their effects;(b) measures to be taken for the integration of mitigation measures in the development plans;(c) measures to be taken for preparedness and capacity building to effectively respond to any threatening disaster situations or disaster;(d) roles and responsibilities of different Ministries or Departments of the Government of India in respect of measures specified in clauses (a), (b) and (c).(4) The National Plan shall be reviewed and updated annually.(5) Appropriate provisions shall be made by the Central Government for financing the measures to be carried out under the National Plan.(6) Copies of the National Plan referred to in sub-sections (2) and (4) shall be made available to the Ministries or Departments of the Government of India and such Ministries or Departments shall draw up their own plans in accordance with the National Plan”Further, highlighting the pre-requisite of invoking Section 12 of the DMA, 2005 during disasters, Sibal stated that the Section required adoption of minimum standards of basic amenities to the effected public.- FYI: Section 12 of the Disaster Management Act states,”Guidelines for minimum standards of relief.—The National Authority shall recommend guidelines for the minimum standards of relief to be provided to persons affected by disaster, which shall include,—(i) the minimum requirements to be provided in the relief camps in relation to shelter, food, drinking water, medical cover and sanitation;(ii) the special provisions to be made for widows and orphans;(iii) ex gratia assistance on account of loss of life as also assistance on account of damage to houses and for restoration of means of livelihood;(iv) such other relief as may be necessary””This has guidelines which spell out minimum standards. It has not been done.” Sibal argued.With this, he sought to rebut the stand of  Centre according to which the Migrants were walking due to “local instigation” basis the legalities envisaged under the DMA.Sibal:”This is the reason [non-implementation of minimum standards and lack of coordination] why people are walking. It has nothing to do with politics. People are walking away from shelters because the shelter homes are not upto standard.”Further, Sibal emphasized that the Centre’s affidavit was vague and inadequate at the state and district levels.Sibal: “If it’s going to take 3 months to transport rest of the people, what are the arrangements? Trains running on 3% capacity. In the current situation, it will take 3 months for people to go”At this juncture, Solicitor General Tushar Mehta interjected, stating that all migrants were in fact not wishing to head back to their native places. SG – They don’t wish to go. You don’t understand that ?Sibal: How can you say that?SG: I said they were leaving on foot because of local instigation! The bench comprising Justices Ashok Bhushan, S K Kaul and M R Shah directed Centre, States & UT’s to file their replies and listed the matter on June 5.The Court also passed an interim order directing that no fare should be collected from migrants by States for travel by rail or bus. The Court also passed directions for ensuring food security and basic amenities to travelling migrants.The Court recorded Sibal’s submissions in the order as follows :”Mr. Kapil Sibal, learned senior counsel submits that the minimum standards of relief, as provided under section 12 of the Disaster Management Act, 2005, have not been provided. He further submits that there are no National / State plan as provided under the Act, which submission has been refuted by Mr. Tushar Mehta, the learned Solicitor General. Mr. Kapil Sibal, learned senior counsel submits that more trains have to be run to speed up transportation 6 of workers. He further submits that there are difficulties in the registration of the workers”.It was on May 26 that the Supreme Court took suo moto cognizance of the migrants crisis, which had been on going since the announcement of country-wide lockdown on March 24. The Court said that there were “inadequacies and certain lapses” in the measures taken by the governments for migrants welfare.”We take suo motu cognisance of problems and miseries of migrant labourers who had been stranded in different parts of the country. The newspaper reports and the media reports have been continuously showing the unfortunate and miserable conditions of the migrant labourers walking on-foot and cycles from long distances”, the bench said.

BT aims to make HR central to strategy

first_imgBT is aiming to consolidate its business as it enters 2003 following aperiod of market volatility, board and executive changes and shareholderpressures, according to the company’s new group HR director, Alex Wilson. Wilson, who joined BT last July from ICI, sees part of his mission as”lifting the vision of his HR team” to enable them to play a fullpart in this consolidation process. In an exclusive interview with Personnel Today, he described the existing BTHR team as high-performing, professional and skilled. Wilson said he intends to work with his senior team over the next fewmonths, however, to develop ways of increasing HR’s strategic sense. This willinclude organisational analyses and subsequently leading change to improveeffectiveness across the company. “We just need to stretch our horizons, see what we can aspire to, andgo for it,” he said. “For a true competitive advantage, we have got to get skilled enough tounderstand the emerging market, what the strategy is, and create theseorganisational interventions.” His concept of HR is three-tiered, with ‘value for money’ at its most basiclevel, ‘added value’ in the middle and and most critical level ‘value creation’at its peak. He said HR must move beyond the comfort zone of focusing solely on its mostbasic services, if it is to tackle the top-level tier. One hundred days into his job at BT, Wilson conceded that his organisationwas still operating “more in the comfort zone than I would like”. He told delegates at the IoD HR Directors’ Forum that as a profession:”We’ve got to have the confidence to fill this space. “Stop asking for permission to play, stop acting like victims, and stopusing phrases such as ‘I am a partner to’, ‘I am in support of’, and ‘I am anadviser to’.” By DeeDee DokeConsult Oracle for advice on people powerOracle vice-president, Europe, VanceKearney, told IoD delegates how businesses can find competitive advantagethrough their people as the economic climate gets increasingly chilly. Here arehis top 12 tips:– Get a reputation as the bestemployer in your field– Hire only the absolute best talent – if in doubt, don’t hire– Provide demanding work and set unreasonable goals and expectations.(“I mean ‘ambitious’ goals. Make them wince,” Kearney clarifies)– Provide your workforce with the best training and drive rapid internalcareer progression– Pay top rates and employ fewer people– Regularly review and replace low performance and outdated skills.(“It’s one of the most regularly refreshing things you can do,” saysKearney. “You have to encourage some change in the organisation, and thenmorale improves.”)– Fire the manager who can’t attract, keep or motivate their staff– Drive reward linked to hard growth and profit, not soft objectives– Keep your HR function to a minimum. (“Make your managersmanage,” says Kearney) – Let managers learn from their errors. (“Let’s get great managers – todo that, let them make mistakes,” he says)– HR must lead by example by adopting modern HR technology, standardisingbusiness practices, spending no more than 0.25 per cent of revenue or 1 percent of profit on HR– Business must be realistic about HR costs and ratios – 1:100 for smallenterprises of less than 500 employees; 1:300 for medium ones of less than10,000 and 1:500 for large enterprises of more than 10,000 Related posts:No related photos.
