Relationships at Work

first_img Previous Article Next Article Heading off potential trouble as a result of divorce is a tricky act to balance for any HR manager. In the past companies tried to head off the problem by banning husbands and wives from working in the same organisation. Clearly such draconian measures are no longer acceptable – and in smaller husband/wife owned firms not applicable anyway.Nonetheless, there are steps companies can take to protect themselves should the worst occur.1 Ensure that husband and wife themselves have an understanding of where their home and working lives part company. Encourage them to set rules that work should not intrude on home life.2 If a couple bring a home dispute into the office remind them quietly that this is not the place for it to be resolved. 3 Ensure that anyone in a position of power with an ex-partner in the same company is aware of the possible legal ramifications of extending personal grudges into professional environments. 4 Where possible discourage senior executives from paying non-working spouses company salaries.5 If the company is large enough, offer ex-partners the opportunity of relocation away from daily dealings with each other.

According to her, two hundred years after Venezuela was officially declared an independent country on the 5th of July, 1811 under the leadership of Simon Bolivar, Venezuela is “still fighting” under the presidency of President Hugo Chavez.She noted that an “interesting process of change” is taking place in Venezuela with the implementation of a socialist program to provide free food, healthcare, education and war training to the less fortunate.“Venezuela is a free and sovereign nation, friend of all nations in the world, a great and beautiful nation which defend the principle of peace and equality for all,” she highlighted. Ambassador Martinez also thanked the people of Dominica for the diplomatic and friendly relations which they have shared, as well as for joining with them in promoting “international peace, respect for human rights and democracy”.Members of the diplomatic corps with Ambassador Martinez (centre).

‘Arsenal must offload Aubameyang with Man Utd’s £100m’

first_img Loading… “If Arsenal were to get £100m for him to sign for United, I would take that. It will make them better, that is why they would pay big. Arsenal were the challengers to United for the title, but now neither of them are. If Man Utd offer £100m for Aubameyang, sell him. If Arsenal were to do such a deal, then Mikel Arteta could be given the funds to reinvest in his squad. The Spaniard may also seek to get Mesut Ozil’s lucrative contract off his books, with Nicholas of the opinion that the Gunners can force their way back into the Premier League elite if they carry out the right business. Nicholas added: “My preference would be to offer Aubameyang what he wants. “Everyone will flag up his wages. I have been told differing scenarios, especially with Mesut Ozil. Is it possible Ozil could move on? Could this then help fund wages for Aubameyang and others? If they get him off the wage bill without getting anything for him, it will not be too bad. “Arteta wants five or six out and he wants that money to rebuild. If nothing more is in the pot, sell to rebuild. read also:Real Madrid make inquiry about Arsenal captain Aubameyang “If you are doing that as a financial package, you are not buying to replace Aubameyang. You can get rid of Shkodran Mustafi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who has been out on loan. This will all help to filter through, so there are easy things to do. Give him what he wants, get rid of dead wood, you have the kids, and it would not cost £200m to challenge for the top four once more.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted Content10 Characters That Should Be Official Disney Princesses7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterThe Highest Paid Football Players In The WorldPortuguese Street Artist Creates Hyper-Realistic 3D GraffitiCan Playing Too Many Video Games Hurt Your Body?9 Celebrities Who Look Older Than They Really Are7 Truly Incredible Facts About Black Holes12 Marvel Superheroes When They Were KidsInsane 3D Spraying Skills Turn In Incredible Street Art6 Unforgettable Shows From The 90s That Need To Make A ComebackCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World? Arsenal should be looking to offload Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang if Manchester United table an offer of £100 million ($125m), says Charlie Nicholas, with £200m ($249m) required to make the Gunners top-four contenders again. The Gunners have so far been unable to get their club captain tied down on a new contract. As he is approaching the final 12 months of his current terms, those at Emirates Stadium have a big decision to make on Aubameyang’s future. Having seen the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey run down their deals towards free agency in the past, Arsenal cannot afford to see the value of another prized asset diminish. Aubameyang is said to be attracting interest from the likes of Barcelona and Manchester United, with Nicholas of the opinion that a deal could be done with the Red Devils despite Old Trafford not being the best destination for a proven frontman. The former Gunners frontman told Sporting Life: “I do not see the glamour and appeal of joining Man Utd. Would he win the title with United in the next few years? I don’t think so. He might not even be in the Champions League if he was to join. What is the real appeal? Is it salary? I don’t think he is that type. “[Robin] van Persie jumped to a massive salary, but Man Utd are not the same calibre as what they were. Would he be the cutting edge to them? Man Utd have other issues to address like Arsenal.last_img read more
