Incentives to improve skills

first_imgIncentives to improve skillsOn 1 Jun 2002 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Tax incentives for employers and individuals could be a viable solution toimprove the UK’s poor track record in inadequate management and leadership,according to a two-year research project. The Council for Excellence in Management and Leadership (CEML) has devised30 recommend-ations to improve management and leadership in the UK. Its reportManagers and leaders: raising our game was launched last month. Setting out CEML’s findings, the report proposes a shake-up to improve thedemand for manage-ment and leadership development, boost the supply of vitalskills and bring about a step-change in the link between supply and demand. Its first recommendation is that a national framework of indicators of theUK’s management and leadership capability be developed to promote theimportance of developing good managers and leaders. The report further recommends the voluntary corporate reporting ofmanagement and leadership capability for public and private sectororganisations through appropriate bodies, including Investors in People. Itproposes that IiP develops and promotes an optional leadership developmentmodule for IiP organisations. Council member Professor Stephen Watson, principal of Henley ManagementCollege, said: “We must find ways of stimulating demand for managementdevelopment.” Watson is keen to see financial incentives as a means of raising demand. Thereport of the working group which he chaired recommends: “Governmentshould pursue effective methods of giving individuals and employers financialincen-tives, to invest in the continued development of individuals at work.Incentives used in other countries should be considered for application in thiscountry.” The reference is mainly to Singapore, where tax incentives arevery effective in getting people into management education. CEML recommends that the case for a national forum to improve dialoguebetween business schools, other providers and their corporate customers beconsidered. “Most business schools want to engage with employers because theirstudents go into employment and they are concerned about preparing themsatisfactorily. You also need feedback on what skills are needed in themarketplace in order to construct your courses effectively. But it is difficultfinding individuals in industry who have the time and are sufficientlypassionate about management education to want to influence it,” Watsonsaid. The Council’s ultimate recommendation is for a strategic body for managementand leadership to be established by the Government. Its key functions will be to set targets; identify priorities for action;monitor supply and demand; report on progress towards developing an adequatequality and quantity of skilled managers and leaders; and to report on progresstowards CEML’s recommendations.

Plant spacing

first_imgBy Gary L. WadeUniversity of GeorgiaMost landscapes today are overplanted. With too many plants forthe given area, each plant is less healthy, requires moremaintenance and just doesn’t look as good as it should.The really sad thing is that such landscapes cost more money thanthey should, too. If you’re planning a new landscape or shoppingfor plants to add to your landscape, proper plant spacing is agreat way to stretch your dollars.It’s hard to imagine cute little 1-gallon plants growing 10 feetwide within five years. But knowing the mature size and shape ofthe plants you want can help you avoid buying more than you need.Move over, BudWhen plants are spaced too closely in the landscape, they begincompeting for space, light, water and nutrients. Internal foliagebegins to die off. Air circulation within the plant canopy isrestricted, and the plants become stressed and more susceptibleto insect and disease problems.Close spacing reduces curb appeal, too, when plants lose theirindividuality and are sheared as huge blobs of intertwining greenfoliage.Horizontal groundcover junipers, like Shore and Blue Rug, willform layer upon layer of foliage when they are planted tooclosely.Creating choresWhen this happens, the dense inner growth begins to die out, andit becomes a haven for spider mites and twig blight diseases. Toavoid these problems, thinning the plant canopy to increase lightinfiltration and air circulation becomes an essential chore everythree to five years.Shrubs look their best when they have enough space to achievetheir full size and shape without fighting for space with theirneighbor.The label that comes on the plant often tells about the plant’smature height and width. But it doesn’t hurt to double-check formore information in a horticultural reference book or on the Web.Whoa!I recently bought several dwarf Burford hollies, for instance,and the label said they grew 12 inches to 15 inches tall andwide. Fortunately, I knew the plant grows 12 to 15 feet tall andwide. The label was misprinted. What a disaster this would havebeen if I had planted them 12 inches apart!One of the most commonly used foundation plants is dwarf Yauponholly. This plant will eventually grow 8 feet high and 8 feetwide. Ideal spacing, then, would be 8 feet apart.Hedge plants are often planted so their canopies touch,particularly if they’re to be sheared into a formal look. To dothis, take the projected mature width of the shrub and decreaseit by 2 feet. In other words, if the plants’ mature width is 12feet, space them 10 feet apart in the row to allow the canopiesto overlap slightly.Happy plantsBy spacing plants properly, you’ll likely find that you don’tneed as many plants as you thought you did. The landscape maylook a little sparsely planted at first. But it will growhealthier, require less maintenance and look better.It will stretch your landscaping dollars, too. That’s somethingyou can bank on.(Gary Wade is an Extension Horticulturist with the Universityof Georgia College of Agricultural and EnvironmentalSciences.)last_img read more
