Employee Rewards, Remuneration and Leaders

Do you have employees approaching you for pay rises when their expenses are increasing? Happens to me all the time despite a well laid out HR policy regarding increments and appraisals. Requests for salary raise are made by employees without understanding that the remuneration paid to them is for work done and it has nothing to do with the fact that they are increasing members in their families or buying a new car.

When do companies move employees up the value chain by promoting their profiles or increasing their remuneration is actually only dependent on the performance of the period gone by and not of the promise made to be delivered in the coming period. 
Whether you have this authority or not, promotions and raises need to be part of an ongoing discussion with employees about their performance. It is crucial to  make these decisions about promotions and raises  very carefully.We should recognize that who we reward sends a signal to the rest of the organization. We need to be sure we are endorsing behavior that is in line with the organization's values. For example, an employee who exceeds his targets but treats his team members poorly should not be rewarded in an organization that values teamwork.the way an organization promotes people has implications for an individual's success. Organizations often assume that a promotion should involve giving star performers responsibility for managing more people and developing — rather than just executing — strategy. This may not be the correct measure for an organizational development process because most time a high performer may not be able to develop an operational overall view of the organization just because of his performance. Leaders have to be recognized on the basis of their temperament and their ability to learn and deliver the results rather than just their age and seniority.

We have been fighting a religion defined definition of “ when did the life of a fetus begin”. It is a trap. The debate around this whole concept is so ridiculous that when you see pages of theories being written about the exact time “life took a birth”

Why I call this entire argument ridiculous is because technically everything is life. A cell is a life. An ant is a life, a plant is a life. Zygotes are life too. However, if you choose to mourn the zygote the same way you chose to mourn taking the dead cells off the bottom off your feet- is a decision you need to make with yourself.

All of these arguments around “life” distract from the actual issue, which is that no human should be required to share their organs with another human. No human should be required to sacrifice their life for another human. The intention or reason behind abortion is irrelevant in the context of the right to bodily autonomy.
I would argue that the Liberal “pro-choice” people who aggressively insist that abortio…


It's about firing the 2020 base. And the mainstream media is helping Trump

When Trump spewed his most preposterous lie about abortion in a rally about how full-term babies were killed by Doctors; do you think no one in the crowd was grown up enough to know that it was a lie? These are full grown people who make more important and logical decisions in their lives every day- what to buy; what to do, where to spend, how to earn a living. Do you think they do not know that Trump was concocting imagery for the benefit of creating a national debate about disgust towards the concept of “abortion”? Abortion is painful. Emotionally, it never leaves a woman. I aborted in 1998, then miscarried in 2008 and 2011. Each time, I named those cells and fetuses, celebrate their lives and created a story for their absence in mine, those cells, which could not find viability, for one reason or the other. So for someone, and these 25 white men, and several others, who have never been through that life-…

The Clock is Ticking : BACKWARD FOR WOMEN

Sometimes it is just a customary sound; but a movement that takes us backward; instead of steering us forward.

2017 and 2018 have been the most regressive years in the progress of women. 

Since Trump became the President of the United States of America, a new culture of suppression of women rights has unleashed worldwide.  He has slowly degraded Women Rights by attacking fair pay legislation, defunding reproductive rights and changing the definition of violence against women. His attitude towards women is evident from the way he treats women and his objectification of the whole gender. In response, the women rights movement has revived itself, only to become negative and vicious.

No one wins when we have to fight. It is still a pity that we have to wave flags, march, hoist posters and commemorate each other on this day every year. We should not have to. 

The global economy could be enriched by about $160tn (£120tn) if women earned as much as men.
