Voluntary sector organisations have been warned they need to improve pay andworking conditions to retain top managers. A survey by the Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisationsshows there is a 23 per cent difference between the average salary forvoluntary sector chief executives and their counterparts in the private sector.Chief executives in the voluntary sector earn £47,675 a year compared tothose in the private sector who are on £65,914 a year. Stephen Bubb, chief executive of the ACEVO, said, “We are not demandingfat-cat salaries but unless the third sector pays professional salaries forprofessionals, it will always have difficulty in recruiting and retainingstaff.” Gill Lucas, head of public and voluntary sector at KPMG’s search andselection – which sponsored the survey, agrees. “Voluntary sector pay needs to move towards a fairer and more flexiblefuture if it is to retain the talent of its top managers.” The survey also calls on voluntary sector organisations to improve their HRstructure. Seven out of 10 voluntary sector chief executives do not have a specifictraining budget and the median spend on their training is just £600 a year. The report claims a third of chief executives invest their own money intheir professional training and development. Nearly 80 per cent of voluntary organisations do not have work-life balancepolicies and over a third have no formal appraisal system. Fewer than one in 10chief executives receive a bonus. The report polled 419 chief executives. Related posts: Features list 2021 – submitting content to Personnel TodayOn this page you will find details of how to submit content to Personnel Today.

About Author: Colin Robins CoreLogic released its National Foreclosure Report, looking at data as of the end of April 2014. The company reported that completed foreclosures in April totaled 46,000, down 0.4 percent from March and down 18 percent year-over-year.Before the decline in the housing market, completed foreclosures per month totaled 21,000 between 2000 and 2006.CoreLogic found that foreclosure inventory fell in April as well, down 4.7 percent month-over-month and down 35 percent year-over-year. As of April 2014, foreclosure inventory stood at 694,000, down considerably from 1.1 million in April 2013.The rate of mortgages that were seriously delinquent was 4.5 percent, the first time delinquency rates have been this low since September 2008, according to CoreLogic. The foreclosure rate also experienced a similar trajectory—the rate of foreclosures is back to November 2008 levels.”Over the past 12 months, completed foreclosures fell to 599,000, the lowest level since the Great Recession began in 2007. At the current pace of completed foreclosures, and given the current foreclosure inventory, it will take 14 months to move all of the foreclosed inventory through the pipeline,” said Sam Khater, deputy chief economist for CoreLogic.The inventory of foreclosed properties has experienced 19 months of year-over-year, double-digit declines, and 30 straight months of overall decline.The 12-month sum of completed foreclosures is at its lowest point since December 2007. Completed foreclosures have declined every month for 28 months.”We have now registered two and a half years of continuous decreases in the number of homeowners who are in some stage of the foreclosure process. This consistent decline means fewer Americans are experiencing the distress of delinquency and default,” said Anand Nallathambi, president and CEO of CoreLogic.He continued, “The recovery may be slow, but it is steady.”According to CoreLogic, 34 states show declines of more than 30 percent in year-over-year foreclosure inventory. Arizona, California, Minnesota, and Utah are experiencing more than 50 percent year-over-year declines. Additionally, 35 states have an inventory of foreclosed homes lower than the national average.The five states with the highest foreclosure inventory as a percentage of mortgaged homes include: New Jersey (6.0 percent), Florida (5.4 percent), New York (4.6 percent), Hawaii (3.1 percent), and Maine (3.0 percent).States with the lowest foreclosure inventory as a percentage of mortgaged homes include: Alaska (0.4 percent), Wyoming (0.4 percent), North Dakota (0.5 percent), Nebraska (0.5 percent), and Minnesota (0.5 percent).The states with the highest number of completed foreclosures during the past 12 months were Florida (121,000), Michigan (46,000), Texas (38,000), California (33,000), and Georgia (32,000).

View post tag: Navy View post tag: Aircraft View post tag: US Industry news BAE Systems and AVX Aircraft Company have combined expertise in system and subsystem integration and rotorcraft design to compete for the U.S. Navy’s Medium Range Maritime Unmanned Aerial System (MRMUAS).The MRMUAS will provide a multi-intelligence, reconfigurable platform for operation from all air-capable ships. The joint team recently submitted its response to the Navy’s Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) to develop this future sea and land-based vertical take-off and landing unmanned aerial system.This solution integrates AVX’s patented new aircraft configuration with BAE Systems’ onboard common autonomous mission systems, payloads, mission control system and support capabilities to provide the U.S. Navy a weapon system that exceeds MRMUAS mission requirements. The team’s highly capable, flexible and affordable weapon system leverages state-of-the-art subsystems, a modular open system architecture and a common mission system design that facilitates reuse.After examining a range of air vehicle options for MRMUAS, including modifying existing commercial and military helicopters, BAE Systems and AVX concluded the Navy’s requirements cannot be met by systems currently on the market. The team brings together AVX’s extensive rotorcraft experience and BAE Systems’ system and subsystem integration expertise, to provide the Navy a weapon system that exceeds MRMUAS mission requirements at low total ownership cost.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, December 02, 2011; Image: unmanned View post tag: Systems December 2, 2011 View post tag: BAE View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Compete View post tag: Navy’s View post tag: AVX View post tag: Naval Back to overview,Home naval-today BAE Systems, AVX Aircraft Company Join to Compete for US Navy’s MRMUAS View post tag: join BAE Systems, AVX Aircraft Company Join to Compete for US Navy’s MRMUAS View post tag: MRMUAS View post tag: company Share this article
By Monique Davis***In a word, Polish film Extras is decent. However, I have just been told by my editor that I am expected to write more than one word. Director Micha? Kwiecinski presents a beautifully shot film in which a group of Chinese filmmakers shoot a tragic film in Poland, under the impression that the Poles are the most miserable people. The title of the Chinese film, Sad Wind in the Reeds, is evocative, but the focus of Extras is the eponymous ‘background artists’ (ah, political correctness). The film is basically a tale of love rediscovered as the father of the Polish-Chinese translator’s child returns unexpectedly, hoping to find things as he left them when he abandoned her to go and see the world. However things, of course, are not that simple as Bozena (Kinga Preis) has married a rich dentist whom she does not love. The film-within-a-film really just serves as a trite plot device, mirroring the action of the frame story and allowing liberal usage of dramatic irony as the extras frequently comment on the main story to the chagrin of Bozena, who tries to stick to the party line of wifely duty despite her love for Romek (Bartosz Opania) the charming rapscallion. Other subplots involve a coming-together of two loveable losers and some older characters coming to terms with being cuckolded. While the film does fulfil its brief of dispelling the myth that the Polish are all miserable, the casual racism has the propensity to make the viewer feel very uncomfortable. Aside from being referred to as ‘Chinkies’, at one point Gralewski (Krzysztof Kiersznowski) pulls up the corners of his eyes and refers to them as ‘yellow’ with ‘slits’, things I have not seen or heard since the playground was my haunt of choice. Later, when the object of his affection, Narozna (Anna Romantowska), comments on his wife running of with a chorister, bites back with ‘at least he was white’, in reference to her dead husbands ‘jungle fever’. These unnecessary throwaway comments really detracted from what was otherwise a charming film.To sum up, Extras is a fantastically atmospheric film. Every shot is delicately composed and the music really adds to the slight sense of unreality. In spite of the overuse of some dramatic conventions, the slightly annoying stock characters, and the Americanised subtitles, the film really has an undeniable charm. However, it is the jarring racism that hits the film hardest in the star rating.
