2018 World Cup – football and the workplace!

Today the World Cup starts and this will go on until Sunday 15th July. Surely a number of employees would want to watch or at least somehow follow the matches. Some of your employees may have already booked leave or are planning too whilst others may follow what is going on through the internet – hence their own device or the PC at work.

Kate Spade – your employees’ lives matters 

Last week the shocking news of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain shook many of us. Two talented famous individuals took their own life. 

It is common for anyone, including your employees, who are suffering from mental health problems to keep this a secret. In fact according to a poll from the Mental Health Foundation, 67% of employees feel scared, embarrassed or unable to talk about mental health concerns with their employer. 

Mental health, just like physical health should be treated seriously in the workplace. A few months ago we wrote a blog giving some suggestions on how to deal with this issue so you may want to read through it by clicking on the Read More button below.

I am concluding this newsletter just after the HR Spring Event we held in collaboration with Business Leaders Malta. It was great to see many of you and thanks for attending! 

In the HR world there is never a dull moment and what goes on around us has a direct impact on the workplace and yes this includes the World Cup. I am sure that a number of employees will want to follow this and hence the short blog on this sporting event. I would like to hear from you so you can tell me if this had any impact and whether it has in any way affected productivity levels. 

I have noted that that the GDPR panic calls have dwindled however this does not mean that just because we made it past the 25th May we can all lay back and relax. The law is here to stay so I know that it is still keeping many of you busy and for those who have not ticked it off their to do list just yet, you need to really get cracking! 

I conclude by thanking those of you who purchased the book GDPR for HR Professionals and I would like to remind you that we have a couple of other events this month and we hope to see you. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.

  • the data protection principles
  • why employee consent is no longer reliable

What’s On

Social Media and BYOD: the love/hate relationship!

Speakers: Dr. Roselyn Borg, and Mr Angelito Sciberras
Venue: 21 Business Centre Naxxar
Price: €55 per person

Social media and Bring Your Own device activities come with benefits for companies however they also come with a number of risks and headaches.

There is no one size fits all solution however employers will need to decide whether to embrace the technology that employees want or whether to prohibit this or perhaps find an ideal compromise. The workshop will also focus on the GDPR implications when employees connect their devices to the company’s IT infrastructure.

This workshop will deal with these two topics in a hands on manner, and real cases shall be discussed.

Furthermore the workshop will outline what needs to be included in the necessary policies.

Time: 08:45 till 16:00

In our interactions with other people, whether at home or at work, with employers, customers or colleagues, we often feel pressured into accepting situations, or taking on tasks that we should not accept. Lack of assertiveness can lead to abuse of our good nature, lowering our self-esteem, and leaving us feeling resentful.

On the other hand, communicating assertively can help us to express ourselves in a clear, direct and appropriate way, without undermining our own or others’ rights.

This practical course will help you understand and handle the different ways in which people communicate. You will learn to use assertiveness as a powerful tool to build confidence in your ability to handle others and feel better about yourself.
