Greetings everyone!

Allow me to give you a brief introduction of who I am. I started my professional life as a Pilot in Indian Air Force after education and training at Defence Academy and Flight Academy. After 9 years in Forces, I joined a Norwegian Airline and flew for them until 1990, when the demise of my wife brought me to cross roads and I chose to stay grounded to look after my three children, however I did start a small Air Taxi company and stayed air born for five more years.

Data Protection: Using Employee Photos and Personal Details Online and in Marketing Materials

We increasingly see photographs and personal information about directors and employees both on websites and in marketing materials. This could also include company Facebook pages and other social networking sites.



A word of caution...



Under the Data Protection Act 1998, photos, names and work histories of employees are considered to be "personal data".  This information can only be used for the…

Inappropriate use of Facebook! Do you have a Social Media Policy?

Ultimately, the claimant failed in some elements of his claim but won in one, with an award against his employer and - surprisingly - against his line manager personally.  That would…

Yet more parental policies for employers to get to grips with....

Having just got to grips with the recent parental policies (in fact I've just produced a full set of parental policies for a client of mine), the Government has issued a further consultation document seeking to change the rules, yet again.

Stand out! WOW them! Be Brilliant!

I recently read a book by Michael Heppell entitled 5 Star Service.  I've met many people who would do themselves a big favour if they read it too.  It's slightly gushy, but the message is strong...    GO THE EXTRA MILE!
