Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector Washington, DC Rector Knoxville, TN The Rev. Monique Stone preaches deep below the earth in the Diefenbunker, near Carp, Ontario. Photo: Allan Joyner Photography[Anglican Church of Canada] About 130 young people gathered in a heavily fortified bank vault in the depths of the “Diefenbunker” near Carp, Ontario, on Nov. 17, 2013. They were there for a Eucharist and sermon comparing the pacifism of Christ and the “redemptive violence” of the bestselling novel and movie The Hunger Games.The once-secret underground bunker near Carp was built more than 50 years ago to protect the Canadian government from nuclear attack.“The Hunger Games is a book about juxtaposition,” said the Rev. Monique Stone, organizer of the service and incumbent of the Anglican Parish of Huntley, in her sermon. “It’s a book in which we see a community in dire poverty pushed up against a community of privilege¬ — in which we hear about a community that is starving, and [another] that has so much excess that at times they actually want to make themselves sick so they can fit in more food.”The story of Christ is also a story of contrast, said Stone. “Jesus is God incarnated into a world where some of those same principles exist, the principle of have and have not, the principle of the poor not being as good as the rich, the principle of many going hungry while many are fed.”“Christians… are here to notice it, and here to do something about it. We’re called to go out into the world and make a difference.”Stone gave participants an opportunity to make that difference by connecting them with “Fred Says,” the new food security campaign from the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF).“It made sense to me that there be an offering for some food justice-related ministry,” said Stone. “It seemed like a natural fit.” Participants also received a Fred Says package after the service.The Very Rev. Shane Parker, dean of Christ Church Cathedral in Ottawa, was the main celebrant at the Eucharist, which brought to a close a seven-week course on the spirituality of The Hunger Games.Stone doesn’t plan on doing the popular service again, but would be happy to see others run the service in their own parishes.“The Hunger Games story is very relevant. There was more stuff to discuss than we could cover in the weeks of our study leading up to this Eucharist. If anyone wanted to do this service themselves, I’d be more than happy to share the liturgy.” Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET A Hunger Games Eucharist in the Diefenbunker Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL December 3, 2013 at 4:17 pm I’ve put up some info and links to files on our website: http://huntleyparish.com/hunger-games-info/ An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Debra Carter says: Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Headhunters feel the pinch

first_imgThe economic crisis has seen leading headhunters watch their revenueplummet. Now they are turning themselves into corporate mentors, writes StephenOverellFor those of you who missed the annual results of Whitehead Mann, the UK’sbiggest headhunter, published this month, here they are. Group turnover is up11 per cent to £64.6m, while operating profit has risen by 33 per cent to£11.5m1. How nice. But what makes the results intriguing is that executive search isofficially in the doldrums. Last year was the annus horribilis of the sanguineworld of headhunting. Between 1993 and 2000, worldwide search revenues tripledfrom $3bn to an estimated $8.3bn2, while the number of search firms in Europeand the US swelled to more than 175,000. The war for talent sent demand skyhigh. In 2001, revenues plummeted by a third, dragged down by the bursting of thedotcom bubble, the global recruitment freeze and the psychological fall-out of11 September. Loyalty, stability and retention became the new currency – wordswhich don’t sit easily with the headhunter’s craft. According to analyst Hunt Scanlon, the top six firms in the world borelosses of $600m in the year to May 2002 after making $2.4bn the previous year. TMP Worldwide, the sixth largest by revenue and owner of the onlinerecruitment network monster.com, posted a drop in revenue of 38.7 per cent in20013. The happy, heady days when whole teams of executives cheerfully jumped shipand headhunters bragged of their latest well-connected scalps – former healthsecretary Virginia Bottomley to Odgers International, top spook Dame StellaRimington to GKN – suddenly seemed a distant memory. So how has Whitehead Mann bucked the trend? Partly because the UK was neveras badly affected by the downturn as the US. But also because it backedwholeheartedly an accelerating trend that has taken hold in executive search:the move into headhunters seeing themselves as being in ‘the talent business’in the widest sense and offering leadership services, such as managementdevelopment and audit, coaching, mentoring, assessment and succession planning.In February 2001, Whitehead Mann acquired the Change Partnership, one of thecountry’s best-known coaching practices. Twenty per cent of the firm’s incomenow comes from non-search work. Coaching revenue is up by 50 per cent. “Coaching is being used more and more as a retention tool for seniorexecutives,” says Gerard Clery-Melin, the company’s chief executive.”It is getting people to feel loved and developed, and proving veryeffective.” It is far from being alone in feeling this way. Many others are hoping newservices will bring about a renaissance. At Norman Broadbent, as blue-chip afirm as ever existed, 40 per cent of its work does not involve headhunting.Clients now want “diverse human capital solutions”, according tochief executive Doug Bugie. “Historically, search has been transactional. But now it is more aboutlong-term relationships in which we look at a company’s current and futureleadership needs,” he says. “We are moving down the organisationlooking at succession issues.” The company does all the assessment and development work for Microsoft andthe Royal Bank of Scotland, while even the Learning and Skills Council has nowoutsourced all its hiring to Norman Broadbent. At the world’s second biggest headhunter, Heidrick and Struggles, nowtagging itself ‘the leadership firm’, UK managing partner Peter Lever says:”People are one of the biggest investments any company makes and it hasbecome apparent they are being treated as assets, rather than costs.” The firm uses what Lever calls “the Jack Welch model” of humancapital. “You have the solid 70 per cent in the middle, the top 20 percent of stars and the 10 per cent who are underperforming and need to bemanaged out. We benchmark management teams against the best in themarketplace,” he says. The irony of this poacher-turned-gamekeeper make-over is probably lost onheadhunters. Ever since some far-sighted souls realised that one of theconsequences of the war for talent in the late 1990s was the ‘commoditising’ ofexecutive search, top firms have been engaged in strategic repositioning toprotect their margins. From being seen as the ultimate well-groomed executive pimps, sleuthing bumsto fill seats, they now want to be seen as strategically involved in their clientorganisations; corporate talent agents concerned as much with retaining anddeveloping in-house star-performers as with poaching somebody else’s. Theknowledge of what tempts someone to jump ship transfers easily enough into whatwill make them stay put. After all, many headhunters have long fostered theimage of avuncular sage to career-focused youngsters. Just like all rebranding exercises, and especially those that followcorporate gloom, there is doubtless a degree of hot air in all this. Nevertheless,the re-branding of executive search is a telling sign of the times. First, it seems that providing a ‘transactional’ service is no longerperceived as a viable model for the long-term – something the HR professionforesaw some time ago. It has to be ‘transformational’ and ‘strategic’. Ofcourse, delivering the right person into the right role is of immense value.But it is no longer acceptable to be quite so hands-off as executive searchtraditionally has been; value is about delivery, involvement and results overtime. Second, it entrenches a move towards organisations having a very small poolof close, trusted partners, who they call on for a diverse range of servicesand who know the business intimately, rather than lengthy lists of contingentsuppliers. One service is a gateway to others. And third, it says a lot about our reputation-obsessed times. Headhuntersalways had something of the rascally middleman about them, with their networks,pretext approaches and target-stalking. Positioning themselves as leadershipexperts, talent agents, coaches and mentors fits with the snowy-whitezeitgeist. Maybe the war for talent had more profound effects than anyone realised.”The principles of the war for talent still hold true,” claims BerndUhe, a partner with the McKinsey consultancy. “Making sure great peopleare joining and then creating jobs for them may be the model which headhuntersincreasingly move into.” References 1 Annual results press release, 11 June 2 The Association of Executive Search Consultants: www.aesc.org 3 Figures from State of the Industry Report 2002, Hunt Scanlon:www.hunt-scanlon.com Research Viewpoint plusRead related articles on this topic from XpertHR’s extensivedatabase free.

CRAE to contemplate Tutor for Race

first_imgMembers of OUSU’s Campaign for Racial Awareness and Equality (CRAE) are discussing plans to create a position of Tutor for Race in the University.Wadham College already has its own Tutor for Race working as a member of the welfare team, but this project aims to guide all colleges towards more effective handling of BME students’ difficulties.One of the problems frequently cited by students and staff of ethnic minorities in Oxford is the lack of a stable, trustworthy point of call, disabling them from communicating or reporting abuse. CRAE hopes that this will be changed by the creation of a university Tutor for Race. Yussef Robinson, who is BME Rep at St Hilda’s, told Cherwell, “Without these institutional roles exceptional and unrecognised levels of personal effort are required to combat racism. This places a huge burden on students and staff of colour. A Tutor for Race helps to alleviate this, that is why it’s so essential.”Robinson added, “Racism is endemic within the University. Oxford has committed itself to diversity and yet has failed to enshrine anti-racist advocation at an institutional level.”Dr Justine McConnell, currently occupying the position in Wadham, equally supports the idea of increasing the interaction between college and university student unions to respond to the problem of racism more directly. She mentioned Wadham’s Race Symposium held on 13th February this year as a successful example of collaboration between the two. She told Cherwell, “Colleges and the University working together seems to me likely to be the most effective approach. It seems to me that more interaction between groups concerned with racial equality is always a good thing.” She added,“That was one driving force behind the Wadham Race Symposium a couple of weeks ago. The event was organised primarily by three Wadham undergraduates.” As well as collaborating with the University Assessor Patricia Daley and the Chair of the Staff BME network, Nita Fisher, McConnell “also worked with those at other institutions, including SOAS, as collaboration and learning from each other is always a productive approach.”CRAE told Cherwell, “As a wider student body, we are becoming more aware of racism being a serious problem at Oxford and that, as a result, many BME students report feeling uncomfortable and excluded, on account of their race or ethnicity. “It is equally clear that many BME students simply do not feel that there are sufficient effective channels through which they can report their experiences with racism (micro- and macro-aggressions alike) or raise concerns about race. “According to the CRAE 100 Voices report, 87.2 per cent of BME students would not feel comfortable discussing an issue of race with their college administration, and 60.9 per cent would be uncomfortable talking to their welfare team. “This is where the Tutor for Race comes in. At the moment, many BME students feel they have no point of contact with tutors, to address their concerns. “We envisage the Tutor for Race to act firstly as a contact and source of support for BME students – someone who can relate to these students. Secondly, they will act as a bridge between the student body and the college administration. This could include beginning conversations, with tutors and students at a college level, on decolonisation of the curriculum. “Equally important is the need for representation. The Tutor for Race does not need to be a person of colour (Wadham’s Tutor for Race, Justine McConnell, is white): after all, the fight for racial equality is one which we should all be part of. It does, however, need to be a person who will understand and represent BME students’ interests at Governing Body and push for race equality across the college, similar to the Tutor for Women role. “For racism to be countered, we need to be talking about race and other issues – a Tutor for Race, in collaboration with the student body, is a fantastic way for this to be achieved. Wadham is the only college with a Tutor for Race at the moment, but every college needs a Tutor for Race. Get in touch with us and help make that happen.”last_img read more

Greggs set to streamline for growth

first_imgGreggs chief executive Ken McMeikan has said his top priority is to “simplify the business” in order to better prepare it for expansion. The announcement follows his initial review of the business since he took over in August. The bakery retailer also released its latest trading update, which shows total sales for the 25 weeks to 6 December 2008 are up 6.6%, with like-for-like sales up 3.8%.The company will also continue rebranding its Bakers Oven shops as Greggs, in order to move to a single fascia throughout the UK.McMeikan said he is confident in the business’ potential for future growth across the UK, particularly in the south of England and the north west. “As a cash generative business with no debt we are in a strong position not only to weather the current downturn but also to exploit the opportunities for future growth,” he said. Greggs will also continue its move into locations away from the high street in order to “serve its customers at work and as they travel”.However, he announced that the company will be beginning consultations with employees at its 10 outlets in Belgium, with the intention of withdrawing from the country altogether, as the shops are currently making a loss. “Over the coming year, our priority will be to simplify the business and strengthen its capabilities to ensure that we are ready for accelerated growth and expansion,” said McMeikan. The review also highlighted opportunities for extending the chain’s product range, following the results of customer research.last_img read more
