It’s not a lot of money when you’ve lost your jobs but it’s the principle. What’s the point in having a Labour Court if you’re not going to honour what that court decides?”Deputy Kieran O’Donnell (FG) said he is “delighted. They fought a hard battle and I want to congratulate them and their families. They’ve shown great courage”.Deputy Willie O’Dea (FF) said that payment was promised last March “yet nothing happened. The workers had to resort to protesting in hail and rain for the last number of months for the Government to finally pay the money they were rightfully owed.”Deputy Jan O’Sullivan (Lab) said she is “very pleased that they will be paid. It has been a long road involving a lot of meetings and negotiations”.Above: St.Enda’s sports complex. Print Facebooklast_img read more

Underrated soft skills that will help you succeed

first_imgEver wonder why you’ve been passed up for a promotion or are not experiencing the career advancement you thought you would? The reality is that there are various soft skills you may be overlooking that can be game changers when it comes to professional success. Here are three underrated skills that you should cultivate to get ahead in the workplace.FocusHaving the ability to fully concentrate on your task at hand is invaluable to strong job performance. There is a wide range of distractions in front of us at all times (i.e. social media) that can lead us down a path of unproductivity and procrastination. Developing the skill to truly focus on what’s important will keep you engaged and give your work more meaning.LoyaltyWhen your workplace goes through tough times, demonstrating your loyalty and dedication to the company will not go unnoticed. Your superiors will value your steadfastness and commitment especially when others have come and gone. No workplace is perfect, but learning to stick with your organization, your boss, and your coworkers through ups and downs will benefit you down the road.AdaptabilityIt can be difficult to accept change when things don’t go your way. Instead of being stubborn and inflexible, pivot and embrace alternate options. The most successful employees are those that are able to adapt to the changing pace of the industry. Keeping up with what’s current and demonstrating your skill for accepting and overcoming new challenges will lead you to greater career success and work achievements. 24SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Wendy Moody Wendy Moody is a Senior Editor with Wendy works with the editorial team to help edit the content including current news, press releases, jobs and events.
