Business rules of engagement

What sets apart new 'how to' books for the general business reader is not their take on historical trends or the extent of research undertaken to back up the views presented. Even if one accepts that the modern workplace is in a period of significant transition, those aspects simply provide context and a bit of academic gloss.

All subjects lead to success

As a Form Seven student, I am about to decide which subjects I am going to embark on. Most of the 'advisers' recommend that I study business subjects, if not law or accounting. The reasons are simple: they make a lot of money and have great career prospects.

Bad attitude tops workers' gripes about colleagues

The No 1 bugbear of employees is colleagues with a poor attitude to their work. That is closely followed by those who are unable to control their emotions, and those who lack passion for their job.

These are the findings of a survey of 502 full-time workers carried out last month by a branch of the Christian Family Service Centre.

Mixed outlook for workers

Workers believe the overall job market has improved but not necessarily their own job prospects, a survey has found.

A poll of 925 full-time workers by City University rated the job market at 5.78 points on a scale from one to a maximum 10, significantly up from 3.87 last year.

Qualified but confused

YOUNG, WIDE-EYED and impressionable, university graduates stand equipped with degrees in their hands and bright futures ahead of them. Yet the road ahead can be daunting.

It is not uncommon to feel panicky about entering the real world. The field you initially wanted to go into might not seem like the right path any more. And finding the right career can be tough.

Is it time for a move? Think carefully

DURING THE EARLY days of a new job you will feel motivated, energised and full of hope for the future.

But sooner or later reality sets in; the boss you thought was terrific no longer seems to show any interest, new colleagues become irritating, and you realise you cannot wait for the end of the working day.

Employees show little commitment, survey shows

Hong Kong workers are some of the least committed in the world to their jobs, motivated more by career opportunities than compensation, a survey has found.

Is the business need clearly stated and proven?

Is the link between business needs and job performance established, and the performance standard defined?

Are the training objectives and results required stated in a specific, measurable, achievable and relevant way?

Is the method used for determining the above rigorous and comprehensive?

Have more realistic outlook

I REFER to the report headlined, 'Thwarted graduates forced to go abroad', which appeared in the South China Morning Post, on July 18.

I don't think that the report reflected the full picture as regards the 'unemployment situation'.
