REC Reveals Ways to Fill Skilled Work Vacancies

Operations Director Liam O’Connell has recently attended an REC Skills Summit in London, which was intended to explain the disconnect between those out of work and the vacancies in many areas that could be filled.

The Summit brought together many from across a wide range of sectors, including life sciences, engineering and technology, so as to try to address the issues facing them. It is clear from these discussions that there is a significant skills gap, with many employers predicting these issues to continue for the near future.

To combat these problems, the REC have come up with a variety of methods, from investments in skills training by businesses, to apprenticeships created thanks to government policy. The apprenticeship policy seems as though it would be most effective, as around a quarter of employers said that they did not hire young people due to lack of skills or experience. It is necessary to train these young people in order to ensure that the skills are there in the future, rather than seeing the gap widen further.

Variety in Science Grants to Benefit Research

Chemistry World has recently reported on a study into the effectiveness of the allocation of grant money to the scientific community.

The study, conducted by David Currie and Jean-Michel Fortin, biologists at the University of Ottawa, Canada, found that a series of smaller grants to a wider variety of people and institutions is more conducive to effective and meaningful research than large grants to the ‘elite’ in the scientific community. The conclusions of Currie and Fortin indicate that an increased monetary grant does not increase productivity.

Highly cited studies are seemingly unaffected by the level of funding received. The impact generally comes down to the quality of the researchers, regardless of career stage. Some more experienced scientists could have larger grants but less time to perform studies due to other commitments, such as teaching, and so cannot fully use the grant money. It would therefore be better to disseminate the money to a wider variety of researchers so that more diverse research could be performed.

Essentially, the money from grants is better used to improve the scientific community as a whole, rather than for the benefit a few specific areas of research. By funding the elite institutions, it is probably that the vitality and variety of scientific thought will be significantly dulled.

Graduates – Great for Business!

Whilst experience is always a bonus, the hiring of graduates is also good for a successful business. Here are a few reasons why.

Cost

It may seem obvious, but an experienced person is going to want more money than a graduate, even if they are applying for the same position. To reduce annual company salaries it makes sense to hire the cheaper option.

Loyalty and Enthusiasm

The fact that you’ve hired a graduate and given them an initial taste of working life would tend to make them err on the side of gratuity. Carefully managed, this could translate into loyalty to your company. The inexperienced graduate would want to prove they can perform as best they can in their new job, possibly with little knowledge of the market and arguably their true worth. Should they turn out to be one of your better performers, managing them successfully could mean they stay for longer than they otherwise would.

Adaptability

New graduates are more likely to be adaptable and au fait with current and emerging technology. It could be better to have an employee who is more capable of throwing themselves into various fields of work, rather than an expert in just one or two. The ability to use new technology is also obviously a bonus, allowing your business to stay at the cutting edge of new developments.

These, plus other reasons that can be found on The Undercover Recruiter, are just a few reasons as to why graduates are excellent candidates to hire for your business.

How to Keep Your Best Staff

Good employees are obviously fantastic to have, but by performing well they may start to cast their eye around in order to find a better job, possibly at a competitor. If this is the case, how are you supposed to go about keeping your best staff?

To begin with, make them feel appreciated. It seems counter-productive to ignore how well they have been performing and not address the fact that they may be coveted by other companies. If you recognise and mention this to your best performer then you can explain why you want them to stay, highlighting what they have been doing well to boost their confidence.

Spend time coaching and helping them develop new skills and techniques that will assist them in their current role. Do not, however, promise money in order to get them to stay. This would give them a clear route to leave should you not deliver, as you have shown you do not keep promises.

Furthermore, support their career development. As a manager, it is your job to get them to achieve the career goals they have set out, whether that is in their current job or not. By doing this, and therefore indicating your importance as a career mentor, you could encourage your star employee to stay on longer, so as to work with someone they respect.

Make sure to work with the better performers! Again, this is necessary in order to get them to feel appreciated in their role. By spending all the time with the weaker members of the team, those who are performing better may feel ignored and seek a position where they are more valued.

By doing this, you may not guarantee that your staff will stay forever, but you will increase the chance that they stay for longer. Don’t feel that by working towards their goals you’re helping them to leave; it will benefit your company too, by increasing the standard of work that is produced by your team.

Norbrook Laboratories Continues Growth

BBC News has reported that Norbrook Laboratories is set to continue its growth over the next two years, by expanding the workforce to over 2,000.

The Northern Ireland based company, which employs 1,700 people, is adding to the recruitment of 200 new staff already this year. The profitable company has been continually expanding, leading to a recent £150 million investment in the Newry site owned by Norbrook, including new offices, warehouses and production suites.

The new jobs will be across “the full spectrum” of Norbrook’s operations according to James Gibbs, the recruitment manager, with those employed dealing with scientific analysis, production, research, engineering and finance. The Northern Irish pharmaceutical sector has been similarly boosted recently following the creation of jobs at Almac, also based there.
