Comments are closed. Previous Article Next Article I’ve been working in HR for a year and am struck by the fact it is a very female-dominated profession. Someone told me that over two-thirds of HR professionals are female. Do you think it is harder for men to make headway in this profession?Peter Sell, joint managing director, DMSConsultancyl When you look at the boards of most private companies you will see that there is a much higher percentage of men in senior HR roles than women so there is hope for you yet. Another point to consider is that if you analyse the career path of women in HR, it is likely that a high number came through the secretarial/admin route. They often do not have the qualifications or motivation to further their career seeing family responsibilities as equally important.There is still a perception outside the profession, that personnel is about welfare, and women typically undertake this type of role. If as a man you have the drive, ability, personal skills and qualifications required for a career in personnel, then you have as much chance as anyone does.Johanna Simons, HR consultant, Macmillan Davies Hodesl HR is not a career that men necessarily join at entry level. A fairly large proportion of men join after spending time in a line role.In the longer term, once you have gained some experience you will find that average salaries for men within HR, as with most other occupations at a senior level, have continued to outstrip that of their female colleagues – although I am sure most women in the profession are hoping this will be addressed over the next few years.It used to be said that HR was an underpaid profession but advertisements for HR directors now regularly feature in the executive salaries sections. This is because leading organisations are importing expertise to raise HR capabilities and equip them for their new partnership role and are also moving more people from the line into HR.If you want to ensure your success, you will need to make sure that you have a good mentor and career development plan which will give you a broad HR background. You should also make time to develop relation-ships across the company in order to increase your overall business understanding and perhaps consider spending time in an operational management role.Peter Lewis, consultant, Chiumentol The HR profession is increasingly seen as a worthwhile career for women as much as for men. As there are more female HR directors than ever before, there is a perception that the glass ceiling for women does not exist to the same extent in HR as in other professions.This perception means talented women will be attracted to HR more than to some other professions, especially as the barriers to entry are not as high as, say, law or accountancy.However, there are still plenty of men at senior level in the profession, both as operational generalists and specialists in all sectors – remuneration, employment law, HR systems, to name but a few.The one exception to this rule is when an organisation trying to recruit a new top management team from scratch, is keen to ensure it contains a representative number of women. The presence of a disproportionate number of good female candidates among the HR applicants could mean that, in these instances there may well be a preference for appointing a female head of HR.Whatever your gender, the key to getting on is to be clear about the types and roles of organisations to which you are best suited and identify those whose strengths fit them for future success.For six years I have been working in HR for a large organisation as one of many HR managers. I have been asked to join a very small company as its first personnel manager. I’m attracted to the challenge of setting up an HR department but I’m conscious there will be no other staff to support me. Is this a smart career move? Will setting up an HR operation look good on my CV, or will the small scale of the company and lack of people management involved count against me?Peter Sell, joint managing director, DMSConsultancyl Your first consideration should be what interests you the most. Moving to a small company could look good on your CV depending on the scope of the role. You are more likely to be able to contribute to the business and make an impact.Does status matter to you? With no support you could end up doing everything including the filing. Or it could offer you a chance to build a professional HR function with administration devolved to line managers with scope to concentrate on more strategic issues.If you relish a challenge, then setting up a professional HR function will give you experience of all aspects of personnel and development. This should give you a list of achievements for your CV and you should have no problem developing your career in either a company environment or possibly into consultancy.Grant Taylor, HR consultant, Macmillan Davies Hodesl You must first establish how your role will be seen to contribute to business strategy. If you are setting up an administrative function where you have little strategic input and no staff management, this could reflect badly in the future. However, if the role is part of the senior management team and viewed as an important strategic hire in a growing business, it could prove to be an excellent move.Moving to a small organisation often gives you the opportunity to use more of your skills, more of the time, and to take a more strategic approach than you probably have until now.Setting up an HR operation is a good experience, but you need to weigh up the pros and cons on how the role may progress and how this will be reflected on your CV.Peter Lewis, consultant, Chiumentol This will increase the scope of your role and responsibility. You will have the challenge of setting things up from scratch and developing and implementing a strategy for HR.How will this move fit into your career plans? Is this a long term move in which you will grow with the company, or a 2-3 year career stage, with a strong change agenda? Either way you will need to acquire additional skills and you need to be clear how to achieve this.Being the sole HR person is very different from being one of many. Understanding the ways in which you prefer to work, perhaps using psychometrics, may well help you identify areas of potential difficulty, where you may well need support.Research the company culture and be clear about what success in this role will look like for you. If you decide to go ahead, work to establish a strong HR presence and review the situation in 18 months’ time, when you should be clearer about your next career step.

During three days of quiet geomagnetic conditions in August 1988, both the EISCAT UHF radar and the NOAA digital ionospheric sounder (Dynasonde) were operated from 12:00 to 22:00 U.T. Sporadic-E layers were observed on all three days, controlled by the action of the semi-diurnal tide. Gravity wave activity was very evident in both data sets, and particularly visible in the changes in intensity and position of the layers. By combining the two sets of measurements it is possible to build up a spatial picture of the phase fronts passing over Tromsø, with sporadic-E layers acting as tracers for them in the E-region. It is observed that structures in the electron density associated with gravity waves descend from the F-region through the E-region to merge with the increases in the layer intensity. The enhancements in the layers, which we suggest are produced by horizontal convergence, are ribbon-like and aligned along the gravity wave phase fronts in the E-W direction, travelling southwards at 60 km h−1 and about 50 km apart.
It was announced today that adding rental payments to tenant credit histories is to be debated in the House of Commons, signalling a U-turn on the subject by parliament.A debate had been scheduled in March after a petition raised by Plymouth construction worker Jamie Pogson (pictured, below) was signed by 147,307 people, well over the 100,000 required to force a debate in parliament.But the snap General Election on May 5th meant all outstanding petitions were closed and, it was announced, a debate on the subject in parliament kicked into the long grass.The HM Treasury also posted a reply to the petition rejecting the idea, saying “lenders must consider a range of factors when assessing a mortgage application. Meeting rental payments is not sufficient in itself to demonstrate affordability over the lifetime of a ban”.But the newly reformed Petitions Committee headed up by Helen Jones, MP has announced that Jamie’s petition is to be revived and debated on 23rd October.“The Petitions Committee will check and challenge the Government’s responses to petitioners and ensure that petitioners’ voices are taken seriously and valued,” says Helen.“I look forward to working with the new Petitions Committee to ensure that petitions make a difference.”Landlord supportThe Residential Landlords Association recently pitched into the debate after canvassing 3,000 of its landlord members, 61% of whom said they supported rental payments being added to tenants’ credit histories in the same way mortgage payments are.“This shows the government is serious about getting more tenants on to the property ladder,” says Sheraz Dar, CEO of CreditLadder.co.uk.“Millions of UK tenants pay billions of pounds in rent every year and yet it doesn’t count towards their credit history unless they’ve signed up with a service like ours.“The government said in their General Election manifesto that they wanted to make the UK a nation of homeowners again, and this is clearly part of that commitment.” Jamie Pogson Helen Jones September 14, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Sprift has launched interactive property reports, creating an instruction-winning tool for agents and potentially reducing the need for initial face-to-face interactions – crucial in the current climate.An industry first, the live and interactive reports create full property brochure experience. All data for an individual property including title plans, planning history, flood risk, council tax, local schools, leasehold information and EPC is aggregated and held on the report. Photos, floorplans, satellite images and street views can be zoomed in and out of for granular, transparent and current information – a microsite for every property – better informing all parties in the property transaction process.Furthermore, all agents using Sprift will also be able to provide an interactive property report for a vendor’s onward property purchase – helping to complete the entire chain and supporting the company’s bid to help reduce transaction times.Andrew Overman, of agency Location Location said, “I am really excited by the prospect of having everything ‘under one roof’ for every single property. This is a major step forward for our team, and the industry.”Matt Gilpin, CEO at Sprift, added, “They create a complete and true picture about the property the buyer is researching, completely upgrading the traditional property brochure”.www.sprift.com interactive property reports title plans planning history council tax local schools leasehold information live and interactive reports Matt Gilpin Sprift Andrew Overman EPC flood risk February 26, 2021Jenny van BredaWhat’s your opinion?

Big Rivers Electric Ends Contract With City Of HendersonMAY 2ND, 2018 MITCH ANGLEHENDERSON COUNTY, KENTUCKY FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail Big Rivers Electric will no longer run the City of Henderson’s coal-fire plant beginning in 2019. The Henderson-based generation and co-op has operated the Station Two plant since the facility opened in 1972, says Jennifer Keach, the co-op’s spokesperson.Big Rivers Electric is seeking commission approval to establish a regulatory asset to defer contract-related expenses. The Rural Utilities Service has told Big Rivers that their request would be met with no objection.Although Big Rivers and HMP&L have discussed the possibility of their termination, the city is left in a bit of a lurch.HMP&L will spend the next couple of months evaluating its options. Those options include finding another operator for Station Two, purchasing wholesale power from the market, or retiring the plant next spring.Keach said all of Big Rivers’ existing coal supply deals will expire before May 31, 2019 but will continue to own and operate the Wilson coal plants located in western Kentucky.
