Employment Compass launched
THE VOID IN written research on employment, human resources and industrial relations in Barbados has been filled thanks to the launch of the Barbados Employers’ Confederation (BEC) Journal.
So said trade unionist and historian Robert “Bobby” Morris, who delivered the featured address at the launch of the 2014 edition of the Employment Compass at Frank Collymore Hall recently.
“Right now we have nothing of this nature in Barbados… I think this fills a very significant gap,” he said.
Editor of the journal and BEC labour management advisor Sheena Mayers said the 33-page magazine contained a series of articles written by local professionals and was part the BEC’s commitment to broadening the provision of information in several key areas.
She added that the journal would allow the BEC to provide topical articles and share information that might otherwise have been kept within the secretariat of the BEC or within the halls of the University of the West Indies.
“What you will find in the pages of the Employment Compass is a collection of inspiring and instructive articles written by real practitioners, that will explore research that might otherwise have remained unknown, suggest practical everyday advice for everyday issues and highlight the diversity of human resource and Industrial relations professions,” Mayers said.
