Rawlings backs ”One Ghana” for Black Stars campaign

first_imgGhana’s former President Jerry John Rawlings has backed the Black Stars of Ghana to shake the rest of the football world in Brazil this summer and lauded the ”One Ghana” for Black Stars campaign.The outspoken elder statesman posed with the beautifully crafted One Ghana t-shirts that will soon be out on sale for Ghanaians to purchase insisting that he has full confidence in the team regardless of their formidable group opponents.He revealed that he has been monitoring developments since Ghana qualified and is disappointed by the level of bad press associated with Ghana’s World Cup campaign. JJ as he is affectionately called believes that the whirlwind of support for the team has been disappointingly slow ahead of Brazil because of the media’s obsession for negative news and sensationalism.” Somehow, some people have deliberately confused nationalism with partisan issues and refuse to wholeheartedly support the team or the people who have been entrusted to prepare the team for success in Brazil which is totally misplaced”.President Rawlings also cautioned the media in Ghana to take a cue from their counterparts in the West who always rally around their national teams and sportsmen but reserve criticisms until after the battles with opponents from other countries. ”When we go into battle, we must do so as one united unit and not divided ranks”In the exclusive interview to be aired on Supersport as part of the World Cup Countdown series and conducted by Yaw Ampofo-Ankrah, ex-President Rawlings paid glowing tribute to Bukom Banku and Ayittey Powers for bringing the spark back into boxing even though at times their out of ring banter threatened to spill over. ”In boxing, these things happen but they must always be controlled by the promoters so as not to get out of hand”. The interview also captures the former Ghanaian President recounting his first ever encounter with the legendary Muhamed Ali when he toured Ghana and visited Achimota School as well as the early days of Azumah Nelson when he trained with the Ghana Armed Forces boxing team before turning professional.Meanwhile as part of efforts to get the whole country to rally around the team, the Minister of Youth and Sports Hon Elvis Afriyie Ankrah has called on Ghanaians to start dressing themselves, their vehicles, homes and offices in red, gold and green.”We all know that President Mahama’s efforts contributed immensely towards the Black Stars qualification through his constant and unflinching support for the team and now he is determined to make this World Cup the biggest national project to unite every Ghanaian everywhere behind the team with the One Ghana slogan”The One Ghana Countdown aims at creating the most exciting and biggest support campaign for the Black Stars of Ghana ever witnessed in Ghana and abroad before, during and after Brazil 2014.On Thursday 22nd May, President Mahama will host the Black Stars and their management to a farewell dinner at the State Banquet Hall followed by a farewell football match featuring current Black Stars players and a select side on Friday at the Accra Sports Stadium. The Ghana flag tour will be in London for Ghanaians to sign and also take souvenir photos with a replica World Cup on Sunday 25th May before the Black Stars play Holland in Rotterdam on May 31st followed by another game against South Korea in Miami.last_img read more

Home Group and Asda celebrate achievements via digital peer recognition

first_imgEmployee Benefits Live 2016: Home Group uses a digital recognition programme to enable both peers and managers to celebrate individuals’ achievements and hard work by sending e-cards to employees across the business.The number of e-cards sent and the reasons for these are reviewed by the executive team on a monthly basis, with employees’ achievements compared to the organisation’s four values: accountable, caring, energised and commercial.Top-performing employees are then recognised in the organisation’s monthly Home Essentials briefing for all staff, with each of these winning employees being awarded a small reward for their contribution.Becky Robson (pictured), head of reward and resourcing at Home Group, said: “This is where Home Group has invested quite heavily as an organisation. I think where pennies are tight within an organisation, if you can get your recognition strategy to the forefront, it’s where you start playing with the hearts and minds of individuals and really recognising their contributions. When the pennies are tight, homing in on that recognition is pivotal.”Robson was speaking in the Motivating employees on a budget panel discussion at Employee Benefits Live 2016, alongside Miriam Tapaki, payroll manager, pensions and benefits at The Francis Crick Institute, and Jane Earnshaw, senior director of reward at Asda.Asda uses a similar digital recognition model, via an internal social media-style app, which allows colleagues to recognise each other by sending thank you e-cards. So far, around 7,000 of the organisation’s 160,000 employees have engaged with this. Earnshaw said: “You can see then that we are building momentum around the simple thank you.”Asda uses a range of communication methods to promote reward and benefits to staff, after going paperless resulted in a fall in engagement. Earnshaw advised delegates that online communication should be supported with more traditional methods such as posters and table toppers.Robson added: “Staffing populations give you a diverse range of requirements and it’s about understanding those requirements and blending them in to a variety of different options and approaches. It’s about highlighting where you’ve got really good ambassadors and using them across the organisation to encourage and support others who weren’t necessarily getting it and moving them [towards] that agenda. You will always have a split of needs.”last_img read more
