BCC: No fault dismissal route would send the right message to business

15 Mar 2012

Commenting on the announcement made by the government today on proposals to launch a consultation on no fault dismissal rules, John Longworth, Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), said:

“Employers have long argued that rules around dismissal do not work for business, so a new no fault dismissal route would be an extremely positive step forward, and would send the message that the government is serious about de-regulation. If these proposals are given the go ahead, it would allow for the swift resolution of a dismissal, and some firms would be willing to pay a premium to achieve this.

“This is a big step in the right direction, but it should be part of a package of reforms, including reforming redundancy rules and introducing tribunal fees for claimants. A substantial overhaul of employment regulations will give businesses confidence to invest and grow, and in turn drive economic recovery.”

EMBA Mini Masterclass: Leadership in an Uncertain World, University of Suffolk

01 Aug 2016

The next Executive MBA Mini Masterclass will be held on Monday 1 August, 6pm - 7:30pm, in the Boardroom, Waterfront Building Ipswich. Following on from the last EMBA Mini Masterclass the topic will be Leadership in an Uncertain World, lead by Dr Tom Vine, EMBA Course Leader.

Tom says, “We regularly hear calls for 'strong leadership', not least in times of uncertainty. But what of followership? We rarely ever stop to think what followership involves. In much the same way as politicians are having to acknowledge following the EU referendum an analytical focus on followership will better equip us as leaders. This short session explores the psychological dynamics between leadership and followership and in so doing suggests ways in which we can enhance organisational cohesiveness in times of economic uncertainty.”

If you are interested in attending, please could you email Laura Messer (l.messer@ucs.ac.uk) or telephone on 01473 338616.

MBA and Executive MBA - What's the difference?

25 Jul 2016

While a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) and an Executive Masters in Business Administration (EMBA) gravitate around the same arena of disciplines, there are key differences between the two which potential applicants should consider when thinking about which course is right for them.

Business professionals who take on a good MBA or EMBA programme will find their studies are dynamic, innovative and practical. The time of dry academic studentship in this area is thankfully over and the focus on relevant and useful skills acquisition for a successful career has transformed how business professionals learn and shape what they learn to work for them.
