Reveille and Hyperbole:
BellSouth (BLS) is proud to announce it has earned a perfect score of 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) 2006 Corporate Equality Index. The HRC is the nation's largest lesbian and gay political organization. Its 2006 Equality Index surveyed and rated 446 companies on a scale of 0 percent to 100 percent on several factors, including whether they have a written non-discrimination policy covering sexual orientation; support transgender employees with written non-discrimination policies and benefits; offer inclusive health insurance, bereavement and family leave policies to employees with same-sex partners; offer diversity training; have Gay Lesbian Bisexual and Transgender (GLBT) employee groups; engage in appropriate and respectful advertising to the GLBT community; contribute to GLBT community organizations; and decline to engage in any activities that would undermine the goal of equal rights for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.

For the fourth consecutive year, Prudential Financial, Inc. (PRU) scored 100 percent on the Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index (CEI) for its inclusive practices for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) employees, customers and investors.

A change in the composition of new directors seated around the board table and corresponding, significant improvements in a board's abilities to deliver improved independent and strategic oversight are two results that have been reported in the 21st annual Spencer Stuart Board Index survey of S&P 500 corporations. Spencer Stuart focused its annual survey on changes in board rooms since 2001, a time when corporate scandal was roiling markets, and a year before the Sarbanes- Oxley Act became law in 2002. "The most dramatic change has been in the area of CEO representation," said Julie Daum, leader of the firm's North American board services practice. "Boards have had to expand their views on what they seek in a new director due to the continued trend of active CEOs taking on fewer directorships."

Heidrick & Struggles International has signed a definitive agreement to acquire substantially all of the assets of Highland Partners, a retained executive search boutique and division of Hudson Highland Group. Heidrick & Struggles will acquire Highland Partners' business through an asset purchase funded from existing cash for $36.6 million in initial consideration to Hudson Highland Group. Hudson Highland Group will also be eligible to receive additional payments through 2008 based on certain performance metrics of the acquired business, which could increase the total purchase price to a maximum of $51.6 million. The deal is expected to close within 30 days, subject to a minimum number of Highland Partners consultants agreeing to join Heidrick & Struggles as well as other customary closing conditions.

Workers 'want retirement at 65'
Many of those questioned had no desire to extend their working life
The majority of people in Scotland do not want to work past the age of 65, a study has shown. Help the Aged Scotland said 80% of adults questioned did not intend to work beyond the state pension age. The findings come despite forthcoming legislation enabling people to keep their jobs for longer. The charity cautioned the 80% not wanting to work beyond state pension age to realise that the future may not be as rosy as they imagine. (BBC)

Whistle While You Work, Everyone Else Is
It's 9:00 AM: Let the Music Begin.
Not long ago the background hum of a typical workplace was the clacking of typewriter keys and ringing phones, or the thump and roar of heavy machinery. That is not what many workers hear today.
According to the "Workplace Snapshot" survey conducted by Harris Interactive for the staffing firm Spherion, almost a third (32%) of adult US workers listen to music at work on an MP3 player or similar personal music device. The survey also found that 10% of these listeners spend more than 50% of their time tuned in. (emarketer)

Brokerages Failing on Retirement Planning
Don't count on your friendly brokerage to steer you to a comfy old age. If you're counting on your trusty brokerage to help you plan sufficiently for your golden years, think again. (MSNBC)

Deep Release:
An overview of recruitment within the Sustainable and Energy job markets
Sustainability, Energy and Climate change has seen huge growth in 2006 as company jump on the environmental bandwagon. As a result any individuals with any skills related to these industries are highly sort after...

Recruitment within the Climate Change and Energy division has seen a boom within the first half of 2006. Consultancies, Developers and Utilities are all facing the challenge of how the can compete with each other to win the best candidates to fill their requirements, clearly making this an employees market.
Sustainable Development within Environmental Consultancies is one example of the current market, experienced candidates who are seeking their next career move within this sector are in a very fortunate position as they will receive job offers from several consultancies for the same role-their decision will come down to prestigious projects ( within the UK and on an International level ), cross training especially within renewable energy technologies, career development, financial gain and their perception of the client offering employment. Within the past month I have received a number of calls from Consultancies seeking to create, develop or expand their sustainability divisions in the past sustainability would have been a sub division of an Environmental or Building Services division but due to increasing environmental legislation and greater corporate awareness of key issues such as climate change, energy policy and sustainable development this sector will carry on growing from strength to strength.

The same now can be said for the wind sector both on-shore and off-shore developments throughout the UK and Worldwide need experienced candidates within the Development ( EIA, Ecology and Planning divisions ), Construction and Operations ( Chartered Civil, Mechanical and Electrical ) again with such a demand our clients are competing against each other for leaders within their chosen field. Last year this was being overshadowed in the UK by the financial and political restraints on some projects causing the over running on the development of both onshore and offshore projects leading to frustration inside the industry, the start of this year however has seen Turbine Manufacturers, Developers and Utilities recruiting professionals for projects in the UK and Overseas but with the shortfall in experience in UK offshore development companies are looking abroad and even sourcing professionals in other industries where key experience can be developed and re-trained into an industry that will lead the Renewable Energy Sector for some time to come.

Many graduates seeking to enter these markets are faced with the opposite problem, as demand is greater for experienced professionals who will be able to ‘hit the ground running' on projects. Graduates are faced with the chicken and egg scenario how do they get a position working within their chosen field if they have no commercial experience. The answer do your research, Environmental Consultancies, Developers and Utilities all have web sites carrying information on their specialist inputs within Climate Change, Sustainability and Renewable Energy Development. Make a shortlist of potential employers and contact them directly to discuss opportunities and whether they offer voluntary positions to graduates wanting to gain experience within these fields as this proves that you have a genuine interest, motivation and keenness to develop you career as an individual.
