IMC to engage on Marikana dispute - 21 Aug 2012By Rod Baker, content director
What happened at Marikana last week is a blot on this country, and in an effort to ensure that what happened there does not happen again, the Inter-Ministerial Committee (IMC) has committed to finding a solution to the dispute
. It cannot be allowed to fail.
MCI Consultants recently released the results of its recruitment trend survey
. It revealed some interesting points, such as 93% of organisations try to recruit internally before approaching recruitment agencies, and 53% use social media to recruit candidates, with LinkedIn being by far the most successful. There's far more to the survey, of course - so don't just sit there, take a look.
You know that favourite storage device of yours? Well, if you're not careful there's a pretty good chance it's infected... A recent survey found that a third of computer users have infected storage devices
On the science front, SA is on a roll when it comes to its output of research
. What's more, South Africa has also more than doubled its publication numbers in the same period covered by the survey, namely 2000-2010, from 3617 in 2000, to 7468 in 2010.
Now for a melodious message - and we think this is simfly suupah! A music streaming service is to launch in SA
. Launch date is 27 August.
