Birmingham City Council to pay 2022 Commonwealth Wealth contractors living wage

first_imgBirmingham City Council has confirmed that any contractors hired to deliver works or services for the 2022 Commonwealth Games will be paid the voluntary living wage rate.In a public report delivered to Birmingham City Council on 9 January 2018, the council stated that contracted organisations providing works, services or goods in relation to the Commonwealth Games will have to comply with Birmingham’s living wage policy. This stipulates that third-party contractors, as well as permanent employees, are paid at least the voluntary living wage rate of £8.75 an hour. The budget prepared for the Birmingham-based Commonwealth Games reflects the city’s living wage commitment.Contractors hired in relation to the 2022 games will also need to regard the requirements of the Birmingham Business Charter for Social Responsibility. This aims to help the local economy by supporting local businesses, creating jobs and making sure employees are paid a fair wage.Birmingham City Council was accredited as a living wage employer by The Living Wage Foundation in 2012-2013 after a change of political control at the local elections in 2012.The living wage is an independently set hourly rate of pay that is calculated according to the basic costs of living. Employers pay the living wage on a voluntary basis, and the rate is updated annually. The living wage is currently set at £8.75 an hour for employees working across the UK and at £10.20 an hour for staff based in London. The higher London living wage reflects the increased living costs associated with residing in the capital.The voluntary living wage is distinct from the statutory national living wage, which is paid to employees aged 25 and over. The national living wage rate is currently set at £7.50 an hour.Birmingham City Council was awarded the Commonwealth Games on 21 December 2017. The tendering processes are ongoing.The public report states: “The city council will require any contracted organisation delivering works and or services or goods in relation to the games to have regard to the requirements of the Birmingham Business Charter for Social Responsibility and act accordingly. Their compliance with the Birmingham living wage policy will also be a requirement.”last_img read more

TMW Unlimited launches employerpaid cycling scheme

first_imgBrand engagement agency TMW Unlimited has launched an employer-paid cycling scheme for 900 employees nationwide.The scheme, provided by free2cycle, was implemented in June 2018 as part of the agency’s wellbeing strategy. It has been designed to help improve employees’ health and wellbeing, as well as contribute towards environmental goals by reducing the organisation’s carbon footprint.Through the scheme, employees are able to select and use an employer-paid bike for both commuting and personal travel. Employees have to commit to cycling a set number of miles a month in order for to avoid contributing to the cost of the bike, which is paid for by the employer at 20p for every mile cycled per employee, subject to a cap. On average, this equates to £20 a month.The expected is halved during the winter months, and the scheme’s four-year finance agreement structure means that employees own their chosen bikes from the start and can opt for a new bike every four years, if they wish.Employees are able to track their mileage via an online app. The app also shows how much carbon has been offset against each mile pedalled, due to reduced car and public transport journeys.The new benefit was launched at TMW Unlimited’s Soho office and is going to be rolled out across its other operating sites in due course.The launch event included an informal presentation and one-to-one question and answer opportunities, delivered by free2cycle, and also gave employees the chance to try out the available bike styles. TMW Unlimited will continue to promote the benefit with ongoing communications and drop in sessions.Chris Pearce (pictured), chief executive officer at TMW Unlimited, said: “We lead rather than follow, we continually strive to ensure that our customers benefit from the most energised, creative people. Encouraging our team to earn a bike by riding rather than paying for it is a great way to encourage regular activity and make a measurable impact on our carbon footprint. Partnering with free2cycle made it easy to implement and benefits our team, the group, customers and the environment; so it’s a win-win.”last_img read more

Parent offers allexpensespaid trip for Bahamas babysitter

first_imgSomething for the weekend: A mother in need has been inundated with responses after posting an advert on childcare app Bubble seeking a babysitter to join her family on a two-week trip to the Bahamas over Christmas, all expenses paid.The advert, placed by banking executive ‘Jenna S’, whose regular nanny can’t make the trip, claims to offer a generous pay package, alongside accommodation and flights, on the proviso that the applicant helps look after two girls, aged four and two.The babysitter will have their own en-suite room in the family’s beach house. They will be called upon to help with the morning and bedtime routines, but Jenna promises they will be largely able to structure their own time and activities during the day.“While we expect to have a few evenings where we’d like [them] to babysit, most evenings [they] will be free from around 8pm or 8.30pm,” says Jenna.Unsurprisingly, the job advertisement has attracted hundreds of applicants, according to Bubble creator Ari Last, who admitted he had been tempted to register interest in the job himself before his wife stopped him.He said: “We’re used to seeing parents get quick responses to their ads, but this one was off the charts. For sitters, the downside of doing the job would mean Christmas spent away from family, though judging by the sheer number of applicants it seems as though a luxury trip to the Bahamas takes precedence.”Here at Employee Benefits, we are reluctant to work over the festive period, but this job is definitely a Christmas cracker. However, if the regular nanny has had a better offer, we might like to consider that first!last_img read more

After Newsstand Spike Meredith Discontinues Dollar Store Distribution

first_img“We had always planned to phase these programs out,” a spokesperson for Meredith told FOLIO:. The spokesperson declined to comment on details of the specific distribution programs, such as the Dollar Tree Store, and the Wal-Mart deal, citing proprietary concerns.Meredith’s Better Homes and Gardens and Ladies Home Journal were both on the notorious Wal-Mart list of magazines scheduled to be cut from its stores. They have since been reinstated.Other titles distributed into the dollar stores, according to one of the sources, were Family Circle and Ladies Home Journal. All three titles are distributed by Time Warner Retail, which did not return phone calls for this story.According to ABC’s FAS-FAX report for second half 2007, single-copy sales rose 71.5 percent for BH&G, 12.7 percent for Family Circle, and 37.5 percent for Ladies Home Journal.Controversial Circ Practice”One, you’re devaluing your product, and two, you’re damaging your relationships with your major retail customers,” says John Harrington, a noted industry consultant and publisher of the New Single Copy newsletter. “Plus, it could have damaged the branding agreement Meredith had [with Wal-Mart].”The Wal-Mart branding deal, which included a range of home products based on the Better Homes & Gardens brand, was announced last October. The new line will be available this fall.That licensing deal would look strange without the namesake magazine on the retailer’s shelves. According to a source familiar with the arrangement, the copies sold in the Dollar Tree stores were overrun copies still within their on-sale period. “I don’t know if they were returnable or if it was a one-way sale, but they were probably one-way if they were only a dollar a copy,” says the source.Since the copies were still within their on-sale periods, the steep discount was a tough pill to swallow for other major retailers who sell the magazines at cover price.Pulling the magazines from the dollar stores should, after all, not have a material impact on the publisher’s overall newsstand strategy. They were sold for a dollar, after all. For Better Homes & Gardens, single-copy sales represented about 5 percent of total paid and verified circulation; for Family Circle, a more robust 23 percent; and Ladies Home Journal, about 10 percent, per ABC. With newsstand sales still struggling to make any significant headway, Meredith, like most publishers, has been under pressure in recent years to find alternative sources for retail sales. And it appears one of those sources resulted in a spike in newsstand sales—and got them into trouble with Wal-Mart.During the second half of 2007, Meredith’s Better Homes and Gardens posted a 71.5 percent jump in single copy sales, according to ABC’s FAS-FAX. That jump, according to well-placed newsstand sources contacted by FOLIO:, is thought to be largely attributed to selling issues at steep discounts at Dollar Tree stores, which attracted the ire of Wal-Mart and may have threatened a significant licensing deal Meredith recently struck with the big-box retailer.While there’s nothing inherently wrong with selling magazines through alternative and steeply discounted outlets such as the dollar stores, the strategy does have an impact on both the brand perception and the rest of the distribution chain. Indeed, Meredith has since discontinued its distribution into the dollar outlets when, according to sources, Wal-Mart threatened to turn the publisher’s titles away from its newsstands. last_img read more

Relix Returns from the Dead

first_imgSpin88.68146.08-39.3 Rolling Stone151.09194.83-22.5 AD PAGESQ1 2009Q1 2008%CHNG Relix magazine was launched in 1974 as a handmade fanzine for Deadheads.Now, it’s returning from the dead.Three months after its publisher, Zenbu Media, put Relix—as well as a pair of metal magazines, Metal Edge and Metal Maniacs—on temporary hiatus, a group of investors led by Peter Shapiro—a former New York nightclub owner and concert producer well-known in the so-called jam band scene—and a core group of the magazine’s employees have acquired Relix and a pair of related Web sites from Zenbu founder Steve Bernstein.“I thought there was a good chance we were done,” Josh Baron, Relix’s editor, told FOLIO:. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. (Zenbu is said to be in discussions to sell its metal magazines; the planned launch of a new country music magazine appears to have been scrapped.)Relix, with a frequency of eight-times per year, carries a circulation of 102,000. The Web sites, Relix.com and Jambands.com, carry even more.“We’re not going to miss an issue,” said senior vice president Rachel Seiden, Baron’s fiancée and a former Condé Nast executive who migrated to Zenbu two years ago. “I couldn’t fathom Relix going anywhere. It’s like the New Yorker—these are institutions.”For the magazine’s fans, the relaunch comes at a heady time. The 92-page June issue, redesigned by Andy Turnbull, features the rock band Phish—returning from its own hiatus—on the cover. And ad pages, at least for this particular issue, are actually up over last year.“This is a scene that’s healthy,” said Shapiro, who owned a minority stake in Zenbu before he bought Relix and remains Bernstein’s business partner on a number of other projects, including the Green Apple Music Festival.  “Live music isn’t going anywhere. And with record stores closing, more and more musicians are selling music directly to their fans—the magazine is a mechanism to reach them.”Such ads “lend themselves to Relix more than Rolling Stone,” Shapiro said, adding: “We don’t have six ads from Detroit in every issue.”The economy has not been kind to general interest music magazines—or niche ones, for that matter. Blender, No Depression, Harp, Resonance, CCM, Mass Appeal and King have all folded their print titles within the past two years—while others appear to be on life support.‘More Rolling Stone than Rolling Stone’Shapiro—who once owned Wetlands, a famed New York rock club and produced the Jammy Awards, the jam-band equivalent of the Grammys—says he wants to create the “vibe of Rolling Stone in 1974”—both in terms of editorial coverage and, perhaps more importantly, “corporate” culture. (He pointed out that his first day in the office included a live performance by the Dears.)Relix will remain in Zenbu’s Manhattan offices, subsidizing it by renting the space vacated by Metal Edge and Metal Maniacs to small, like-minded entertainment companies, including Bob Weir’s manager.Shapiro will serve as publisher of the newly-formed Relix Media Group, Seiden as associate publisher. Baron will remain in the top editor slot.The rest of the executive team will include Dean Budnick, senior vice president of digital; Mike Greenhaus, vice president and executive editor; chief financial officer Dale Hirschman; and sales and marketing VP Cole Boyle.All are veterans of the magazine—and all are taking salary cuts, roughly 15 percent, to relaunch Relix.“If we didn’t see a real business value, we would’ve walked away,” said Baron. “This isn’t a case of putting a Band-Aid on a magazine. We think we can increase ad revenue, circulation, marketshare. What we had been doing for the last eight years—we weren’t done yet.”Help on the Way?

In Other News Dozens of Camp Lejeune Families Displaced following Florence

first_imgNearly 350 homes at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune sustained damage last month after Hurricane Florence blew through eastern North Carolina and dumped several feet of rain. Eighty-two homes are uninhabitable, requiring families to be relocated, and 267 suffered water damage with possible mold or a collapsed ceiling, reported the Daily News. The number of damaged homes is expected to grow as Atlantic Marine Corps Communities, which manages most of Camp Lejeune’s housing, completes assessments of all of its units. Some of the families living in damaged homes dispute the housing manager’s determination that they are habitable and have complained about the lack of response, reports Reuters. Lincoln Military Housing, which also operates housing on the base, has not reported any homes with significant damage. Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl.

House Joint Fighter Caucus Proposes Purchasing Additional F35s

first_img ADC AUTHOR The House Joint Strike Fighter Caucus sent a bipartisan letter Monday signed by 99 members to push for an increase in F-35A purchases, following the Air Force’s recent budget request that proposed keeping them at a flat rate, DefenseNews reported.The letter to defense authorizers and appropriators argued the caucus’s proposed F-35 production hike would reduce overall unit costs and ensure air dominance as “adversaries continue to advance surface-to-air missile systems and develop their own stealth fighters,” DefenseNews noted.“As global threats continue to rise, the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Fiscal Year 2020 budget request, which includes funding for 78 F-35 models (48 F-35As, 10 F-35Bs and 20 F-35Cs) – 15 less than Congress appropriated in Fiscal Year 2019 – leaves the Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps with a capability gap that 4th Generation, or legacy, aircraft cannot fulfill,” the letter argues.“To reach the minimum 50 percent ratio of 5th generation and 4th generation fighters in the timeframe required to meet the threat, the U.S. must acquire F-35s in much larger quantities,” the letter says. “F-35 modernization is crucial for 4th generation aircraft systems, which are increasingly vulnerable and reliant on 5th generation production.”Air Force photo by Sgt.
