Job creation highest in ten months

first_img whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ Wednesday 9 March 2011 3:27 am Recruiters, led by the private sector, filled permanent vacancies at the fastest pace in 10 months in February while wage inflation eased to a three-month low, a survey showed.Research for the Recruitment and Employment Confederation and KPMG also showed hiring of temporary staff rose at its sharpest rate since May 2007, offering hope the economy might bounce back from the shock contraction it suffered late last year.The permanent placements index – a measure of how many firms are hiring extra workers compared to the previous month – rose to 62.7 in February from an upwardly revised 58.2 in January. It has been above the 50 level, which separates growth from contraction, for 19 months.The wage inflation index for permanent staff fell to a three-month low of 53.7, down from 54.1 in January, and was below the long-run average.That is likely to cheer the Bank of England as it faces increasing pressure to bring consumer price inflation down from four per cent, double its target. Policymakers are keen to avoid the risk of a wage-price spiral but are also wary of raising interest rates against a fragile economic backdrop.Britain’s economy suffered a surprise 0.6 percent contraction in the final quarter of 2010 and the number of Britons claiming unemployment benefit rose in January for the first time in four months.REC said that, in February, increased hiring by private companies stood in sharp contrast to a weak performance in the public sector.The government is cutting £81bn from spending, around a fifth of most departmental budgets, and raising taxes to eliminate a record deficit. Its budget watchdog expects 330,000 public jobs to be lost by 2014/15.“The UK now has a two-speed labour market,” said REC chief executive Kevin Green. “The private sector continues to hire in increasing numbers while the public sector is shedding jobs.” whatsappcenter_img John Dunne Ad Unmute by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeHealthyTed Health Magazine10 Surprising Benefits of Bananas You Possibly Didn’t Know AboutHealthyTed Health MagazineUndoAll Things Auto | Search AdsNew Cadillac’s Finally On SaleAll Things Auto | Search AdsUndoTaonga: The Island FarmAdvertisement The Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

See all posts by Peter Stephens I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Image source: Getty Images. Following the stock market crash, a wide range of cheap UK shares are currently available to buy. Although they may face uncertain near-term outlooks in many cases due to risks such as coronavirus and Brexit, their long-term growth prospects appear to be sound.As such, building a portfolio of undervalued shares today with £10k, or any other amount, could be a sound move. Historically, buying stocks at low prices has provided scope for strong capital gains. Doing so could mean that you outperform the FTSE 100 in the coming years.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Buying cheap UK shares todayWhile some cheap UK shares deserve their low valuations, others may be suffering from weak investor sentiment towards the wider stock market. For example, some businesses have solid balance sheets and the right strategies to adapt to changing consumer tastes. However, risk aversion among investors may mean that they trade at low prices compared to their historic averages.In such cases, there may be wide margins of safety on offer that can ultimately translate into strong capital growth in the coming years. Certainly, the near-term prospects for many businesses are challenging. But, in a number of cases, these risks appear to be adequately priced in from a long-term standpoint. This could mean that now’s the right time to build a diverse portfolio of undervalued shares that has significant capital return potential.Outperforming the FTSE 100Buying cheap UK shares today could lead to higher returns than those offered by the lead index over the long run. Although the FTSE 100 is often viewed as an index that has offered poor returns, it has delivered an annualised total return of around 8% since its inception in 1984. This is significantly higher than the returns of other mainstream assets. It’s also roughly in line with the performance of other large-cap indexes across the world.Certainly, much of those gains have been from the reinvestment of dividends. However, with many shares currently offering high yields, the index’s future may be more positive than many investors currently believe. Therefore, it may be reasonable to assume it can continue to offer total returns that are in the high single digits on an annualised basis.Through buying a selection of cheap UK shares today, you could benefit from the stock market’s recovery prospects. It has always posted new record highs following its downturns. This suggests a similar outcome is likely to take place following the current crisis. As with any asset, buying at a cheap price can be advantageous when it comes to long-term returns.With many large- and mid-cap shares currently trading on low valuations, now could be the right time to start buying high-quality companies that are undervalued by investors after the recent stock market crash. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

iPhone found on pitch during rugby match in Brazil

first_imgThursday Oct 10, 2013 iPhone found on pitch during rugby match in Brazil There was a bizarre moment during a match in Brazil last weekend, where a referee was handed an iPhone that was found on the field. We shared the link on our Facebook and Twitter accounts earlier today, but decided to archive it for safekeeping too. The commentators apparently joked that there were missed calls from one of the player’s mothers, concerned for her son’s safety. The bemused referee wasn’t too fussed though, simply tossing it to the touchjudge, saying ‘An iPhone for you, Bruno.’A while back we saw Nigel Owens call the TMO on a phone, but this is a first.View more of the weird and wonderful in our See it to Believe It section*note that the image above links to an external siteADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Fundraising Media DNA: building trust in charities

first_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. 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.  70 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 By combining the most trusted media – direct mail, email and DRTV – with another channel such as telephone or street-fundraising (which are good at generating action), charities might maximise success through employing complementary channels. And a multi-channel approach can achieve a natural uplift by increasing exposure to the brand and the message.If fundraisers communicate using a donor’s preferred medium, this helps to build trust. To do this it is necessary to obtain explicit channel choice when collecting consent-to-contact, as recommended in the latest Information Commissioners Office ICO guidelines.David Cole, MD, fast.MAP, commented on the issue of trusted channels. He said:“Fundraising campaigns work most effectively when a mix of media is used to enhance and underline the message, by extending the most appealing concept to the right audiences at the right time.“Because people trust the messages carried via DRTV (Trustworthy Index: 132), direct mail (Index: 151) and email (Index: 111), savvy fundraising teams can use this goodwill to boost the credibility of co-ordinated promotions carrying the same message. By simultaneously using other channels to extend the campaign’s reach to include crucial target niches they can reinforce the message, boost brand reputation and uplift overall credibility.“Also the tangible, personal qualities offered by print, when used in leave-behinds by door-to-door and street fundraisers or follow-up mailings/ emails after telephone appeals can compensate for those media’s lack of retainability.”Justin Wylie, Head of Strategy, Performance and Insight, Action Aid, welcomed the detail on channel trust revealed by the survey. He said:“These days charities need to maintain and rely upon a wide range of marketing channels and approaches. Across that portfolio, each channel has its own dynamics, personality, strengths and weaknesses, and that’s why ensuring a balanced portfolio is so critical for developing and establishing a sustainable and scalable fundraising strategy. There’s a rich body of data that can help us project out the returns we can expect from each channel. However, this new lens of looking at ‘trust by channel’ can only be a useful addition to that existing body of channel knowledge. It might firm up some of the assumptions we already had or help give us a broader understanding that we can act upon. The more insight, the better!”Other findings* All age groups trust both direct mail and DRTV – 18-34s, 35-54s, 55+* Both direct mail and email generate equal levels of trust among both lower-value and higher-value donors* Email is particularly trusted among 18-34s (Trust Index: 18-34, 118) – fundraisers were unaware a younger audience engaged with charities in this way (Engagement Index: 18-34, estimated by fundraisers: 84 vs. Actual 121)* Those who give large donations have more trust in DRTV than those who donate less (Trust Index: High Donor 127 vs Low Donor 118)* There is an inherent gravitas in DRTV (Authoritative Index: 137), indicating the medium can work well for charities of all sizes wishing to enhance supporter trust* All of these factors, when combined with a focussed, appealing proposition, executed in a compelling way, can help charities generate vital funds for their cause * The second analysis in our series on the Fundraising Media DNA report will be published next month. [youtube height=”450″ width=”800″]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSf3sCE8RcI[/youtube] Howard Lake | 3 July 2015 | News Detail on the fundraising channelsFor more on the merits of these fundraising channels, download the summary infographics via the links below:* The Fundraising Media DNA of Direct Mail* The Fundraising Media DNA of DRTV* The Fundraising Media DNA of Email* Download the full Fundraising Media DNA reportcenter_img Implications for charitiesSupplementary material (which is often regarded by the recipient as accountable proof) can be integrated into campaigns. For example, street, door-to-door or phone campaigns can integrate leave-behind material or a follow-up message, to enhance credibility and trust.A channel buddy-system. Some channels, such as telephone and door-to-door, are more likely to motivate action, but not score so well on trust. “A crucial part for charities in building trust to supporters and potential donors is for causes to ensure they are communicating with them in their preferred channels. We can see this particularly with direct mail (Preferred Channel Index: 149) and email (Preferred Channel Index: 196).“People are naturally more open to messages and requests in an environment they are comfortable with and enjoy engaging in. With the right approach, the right ask, at the right time, fundraisers can maximise the chances of raising funds for their important cause. It is also imperative for charities to ensure they build a database to communicate with people in a correct way for these preferences.”Barney Hosey, MD, Brightsource, commented on the role of email:“Email was in the top three most trusted channels across the majority of demographic profiles. Email has become an established communication channel for a very wide demographic; therefore it makes sense that charities increasingly incorporate email as part of the marketing mix to help build engagement and trust.“It is important charities harness the supporting role that email can play in the mix. Using email to confirm or acknowledge an action is a great way of providing some kind of ‘proof’ for the donor that they are being kept up to date – crucial in building familiarity and trust. Trust and engagement can also be built by using email to amplify the impact of other channels – particularly direct mail, which is highlighted as the most trusted channel.”Nairn Johnstone, Head of Data, Insight and Development, The Royal British Legion, explained why email was important to the charity, saying:“Email is a channel that is easy to deliver a simplistic one size fits all with minor tweaks for personalisation. There is often little appetite to create different messaging beyond offering different products. This research has driven home the opportunity to target different supporter groups with radically different messaging.“Groups who grew up with, or were late adopters of email have much more trust in the medium. Those who were early adopters to what was then a new channel went through the pain of the scams and spam is understandably less trusting. There is an opportunity to tweak our messaging to build trust in this audience and thus engagement in the charity and cause.“Building and maintaining trust, now more than ever, is critical to any fundraising strategy. The ability to map the personality of channels will enable more effective supporter journey creation that goes beyond simply measuring ROI. Using a channel like email to pre-empt communication through a less trustworthy, but more personal, channel like Telephone should help charities engage in a more meaningful dialogue about their work.“ Are channels universally trustworthy to all profiles?Direct mail, DRTV and email are also regarded as the more trustworthy channels by a variety of donors.Some channels are seen as consistently trustworthy across all profiles. The favourites in order of trustworthiness are direct mail, DRTV and email. Direct mail achieved the highest trust index score of all channels and profiles among males (Trust Index 165).Some channels are trusted more by some demographic groups than others. The SMS index among females is 105, while social media achieved an index of 101 among 18-34 year olds.Graham Cooper, MD, ONEPOST, commented:“As fundraisers and marketers, we know that direct mail is very appealing for charities looking to raise vital funds. We also know it is popular with older donors. However, we also have to acknowledge that 18-34s engage with it (Engagement Index: 18-34, 118) and that among 35-54s, it is also considered trustworthy too (Trustworthy Index: 35-54, 153).“We should not underestimate the power of the printed word and the inherent qualities it has. That it is also relevant to people’s likes and dislikes (Relevant Index: 132), combined with the ability to target and personalise, means it is very efficient and powerful.”Trust by profile and channel Last month we shared the initial findings of Fundraising Media DNA, a new tracker survey undertaken by the Institute of Fundraising with charity research specialist fast.MAP. This month, in the first of a new series, we look in more detail about some of the first survey’s results.What can fundraisers do to increase donor/ supporter/ prospect trust?Fundraising Media DNA looks at eight key communication channels used for fundraising, providing insight about the relative strengths and advantages of each channel. This is broken down into three key areas:• Profile – The people engaging with each channel• Personality – What are the attributes associated with each channel• Action – How people are likely to respond or act further as a result of the communicationThe views of almost 2,500 consumers and over 130 fundraisers have been taken into consideration in the production of the report.For each form of fundraising, fast.MAP took the responses of donors and fundraisers to build an index to give the results of the surveys. The average score will always be ‘100’, which provides the benchmark to compare the other scores. So, for example, a score of 250 on ‘Share’ means that it is performing at 2.5 times above the average score across that particular group.Strongest channels for trustDirect mail is the most trusted fundraising channelThe three channels most likely to engender trust are direct mail (Overall Trust Index 151), DRTV (Overall Trust Index 132) and email (Overall Trust Index 111).Scott Logie, MD, REaD Group Insight, commented: Advertisement What attributes are common within channels that are seen as being more trustworthy?Both direct mail and email score particularly well for retainability, which suggests accountability is an important trust-building factor. People like to retain information for later reference. Direct mail achieves a high retainability score (overall index -155) as does email (overall index – 162).Preference is personal, so some donors do not favour the channels which score best overall. DRTV is used as a direct response medium, but its mass-broadcast heritage means it is unlikely the messages it carries are perceived as a discrete individual communications in the same way as those using other direct marketing channels. However, it has authority (Authoritative Index: 137) which boosts results.What makes a channel trusted? Fundraising Media DNA: building trust in charitieslast_img read more

John Lewis follows #ManOnTheMoon Christmas ad with Age UK appeal video
