Dinners were served to the homeless, a baby shower was held for expectant mothers at a care home, choral music was performed at a senior residential facility and a fence was built at a tutoring center, among many projects.Harambee garden project“Serve Day is such a great way to put our faith into action, unite people across generations and walks of life, and use our time to benefit the community,” said Rev. Megan Katerjian, Interim Associate Pastor of Outreach at LCPC. “We were thrilled so many participated. We look forward to next year.”In just one example, 41 participants presented a Foster Kids’ Night Out at Child SHARE, which serves abused and at-risk children. “The kids had such an incredible time playing with the bubbles, and some of the boys didn’t even want to eat, as they were having too much fun playing games,” said Amanda Bell of Child SHARE. “What a wonderful gift the night was to all in attendance!”Crista Murray, an LCPC member and Serve Day participant, said, “I saw God at work when I saw how happy these kids were. From a little painting to some Lego building to the bubble show and play time, I had forgotten that it doesn’t take much in terms of activities and attention to make a child happy.”Other projects in Pasadena and surrounding communities included the revitalization of a rose garden at Harambee Ministries, food for the homeless through Union Station and Brothers’ Helpers, donations to the Union Rescue Mission Thrift Store truck, LCPC Chancel Choir concert at Monte Vista Grove Homes, baby shower at Elizabeth House, dinner and chapel at the Walter Hoving Home, Moms’ Night Out for Casa de Alegria, work days for Door of Hope and Bridges, and donations of blood to the Red Cross.“The enthusiasm and wanting to serve was palpable,” said David Austin, an LCPC member who led a project. “Our group was motivated and happy to be there.”For more information about La Canada Presbyterian Church and its Outreach Programs, worship services and other activities, visit lacanadapc.org or call (818) 790 6708.

Bullying at work is rife with one in five affected

first_imgBullying at work is rife with one in five affectedOn 8 Oct 2002 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. More than one in five employees have been bullied at work at least onceduring the past year. This is one of the main findings of a survey of more than 3,500 staff in theUK by Mercer Human Resource Consulting, and if consistent would mean 1.5million workers suffered some form of bullying at work last year. The study also reveals that almost one in 10 employees report they have beenbullied on several occasions, while 2 per cent say they have been bullied sixor more times in the past year. Patrick Gilbert, head of organisational research and effectiveness atMercer, said: “At first glance, these numbers appear to be relatively low,but when extrapolated to the UK workforce, we are talking about vast amounts ofpeople. These findings indicate that well over 1.5 million workers could be thevictims of repeated bullying at work.” Bullying isn’t confined simply to employees lower down the organisationalhierarchy. The study finds that 24 per cent of middle managers and 17 per centof senior managers said they had been bullied at least once in the past year. Gilbert said: “The high rate of bullying among managers is a particulararea of concern. If managers are the victims of bullying, they are more likelyto bully the people they manage. The high rate of bullying across allorganisational levels indicates how entrenched this dysfunctional practice isin UK organisations.” There are few differences in the rate of bullying reported across age groupsor size of organisation. The study also finds that men and women are equally likely to report thatthey have been bullied during the past year. By Ross Wighamwww.mercerhr.com Previous Article Next Articlelast_img read more

How to reduce the hidden cost of employee turnover

first_imgAlthough turnover in the credit union industry has remained steady at about 12 percent for the last three years, in some regions like the Southwest, it has climbed as high as 19 percent. And while some turnover can be good for a company, giving you the opportunity to bring in new talent, it still has a massive financial impact on the industry.A recent study by the Cornerstone Credit Union League showed that turnover in Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas credit unions cost them more than $68 million in 2013. And if you consider that it costs between 50 and 150 percent of an employee’s salary in replacement costs, we could be looking at numbers into the low billions industrywide.The three main reasons employees are leaving credit union jobs? Better pay, opportunities to advance and dissatisfaction with managers. Here’s what you can do to reduce them.Compensation MattersIn 2011, the Ron Volper Group conducted a cross-industry study that confirmed that dissatisfaction with compensation was the number one reason for turnover. And, the study continued, 80 percent of employees who moved to a new company did so to take a higher paying position. continue reading » 13SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Augustine Okrah overwhelmed by response after stunning rabona in Sudan

first_imgAugustine Okrah has been overwhelmed by the response he has received after the spectacular goal he scored last night.Okrah’s rabona came in his Sudanese club Al Merreikh’s 2-0 triumph over Merreikh Kosti.Shortly after the goal, social media was awash with videos and praises for the prolific striker.In an exclusive interview with Joy Sports, Okrah says his phone has not stopped buzzing.“They have been telling me this goal is crazy. I can’t even turn my phone off, people have been calling me non-stop asking me how I did it.”“Even my mother says she has not seen anything like that before. And I told her she should keep praying for me. This goal is not from me, it’s from God.”The former Bechem United forward has attributed his hard work over the past few weeks to constant practice and watching his football idols. “I have been watching Messi and Ronaldo and I have been learning a lot from them.”A rabona can be described as a method of kicking the ball whereby the kicking leg is wrapped around the back of the standing leg—effectively with one’s legs crossed.Okrah was adjudged the Most Valuable Player of 2013/2014 Ghana league season.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoyFMSports.
