The Business Edge Program – giving employers what they want

The development of employability skills, commonly referred to as key, core or generic skills, in business graduates is of increasing importance to employers worldwide. This focus on fostering skills, attributes and knowledge which better prepare students for the workplace is not a new concept but one recognised in both education and industry as now being a pivotal element of business undergraduate education.

In 2002, the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry [ACCI] and the Business Council of Australia [BCA] developed a national framework for employability skills (Department of Education, Science and Training [DEST], 2002), see table below. In line with changing global and national business environments, a more contemporary employability framework is needed to first, reflect evolving industry requirements and second, to provide the Business Edge (BE) program with a clear set of program outcomes. As a core component of the Bachelor of Business, BE is based on a framework which captures and reflects current employer preferences and priorities (see table below); ensuring that ECU business graduates meet the expectations of today’s employers. 2002 Employability skills framework1 | ECU Graduate Attributes | 2010 BE Employability Skills framework2 | Communication | Ability to communicate | Communicating effectively | Teamwork | Ability to work in teamsCross cultural and international outlook | Working effectively with others | Life-long learning | | Self-awareness | Technology | Ability to communicate | Analysing data and using technology | Problem solving | Critical appraisal skills | Problem solving | | Critical appraisal skills | Thinking critically | Initiative and Enterprise | Ability to generate ideas | Developing initiative…...

Email Personality

...KLA Article: Is Email Hiding Your Personality Page 1 of 2 Is Email Hiding Your Personality By Kendra Lee, President, KLA Group Let's Get Connected Email is so much easier to use for prospecting than the phone. You can write it at any time day or night. You don't have to worry about being hung up on and you won't catch your client "at a bad time." But it's also easily deleted with no response. When you put yourself into your email, your chances of getting prospects to respond escalate. You stand apart from the other sellers who blend together as Inbox clutter. Sound hard? It doesn't have to be. You know that it's your personality and message that distinguish you on the phone. But, when you write, you have to be really careful that the words you choose let your personality shine through. If your prospect can't feel your personality, you're no different than any other seller trying to get time on his calendar. Here's the story of two sellers I've been working with and their very different email prospecting results: Eric, who follows the email prospecting rules perfectly, and Mae, who breaks the rules and allows her personality to shine. Eric sells IT maintenance services. He does most of his prospecting via email because he doesn't like to cold call. He has an outstanding value proposition including impressive financial results clients have received in reducing unplanned IT expenditures. Eric adapts his value proposition to the group he's targeting and follows...

I require R4 000 000 for the start up of the company and need your assistance in preparing a budget, doing accounts and obtaining a loan. The estimated cost to start the business consists of property, interior, stock and appliances. Adding to this is the cost of paying staff at an estimate of R4500 per night. As I have no experience in running accounts and doing finances for a business I require your help in doing so. I would need to prepare a monthly budget inclusive of all expenses and income so as to efficiently spend money and create maximum profits. I would also require you to do monthly accounting for the business to submit to SARS. Most importantly we would need your assistance in obtaining a loan from the bank to fund the start up of the business. This amount will be the whole R4 000 000. The loan will need to be obtained within the next year so the building for the business can be purchased and the business can be started by the set date of 24 April 2015. This means that in the time being you would not have to go forward with the monthly accounts however, I would like you to draw up the budget so I have an idea of the business plan in advance. Thank you in advance for your attention to this matter....

...SITUATION WHERE EMAIL SHOULD BE USED IN CORPORATE COMMUNICATION Email is widely used as a form of business communication and overall it is a highly effective communication tool. Email is inexpensive, only requiring an Internet connection that is generally already present in the business. Although a printout of emails is possible, emails often stay as soft copies because archiving and retrieving email communications is easy to do. From the CEO to the janitorial staff and even temporary employees of the business can send and receive email communications. 1. Although it cannot and should not replace all face-to-face communication and others forms of communication, internal email usage can cover many areas within the business. Internal emails can function as an effective communication for sharing basic information, such as new cafeteria prices, paper use guidelines or security precautions, for example. Sending simple messages to an entire workforce with just the click of a mouse is fast, easy, convenient and can save the company money. If saved, the email can function as proof of a message sent or received, and is easily accessible to remind the recipient of pertinent information. Many businesses use email as part of its marketing efforts to share information with prospects, customers, and vendors. 2. Business emails should be concise and to the point. Use plain text and common fonts with a simple signature line. Fancy graphics, fonts, and backgrounds can take up......

Business Communications Email

...To: Michael Harding Subject: Reaction to Casual-Dress Policy Cc: Michael, After the inquiry you provided I have looked over the questions regarding the dress code and have provided some information pertaining to each question raised by Mr. Laughton. • Employees should be allowed to wear dark wash jeans on dress down days provided they do not have rips or holes. Shirts should cover midriffs and shoulders and represent employees with an element of class. • Restricting body art and piercings would help give the employees a polished look and would allow for employees to make a professional first impression on clients. • Supervisors need to inform employees when their clothing is inappropriate. This can prevent the same employees from having similar problems in the future. Supervisors might find it helpful to have a specific set of guidelines to refer employees to. • With detailed guidelines it would be possible for employees to have casual dress days. Employees need to remember they are representing the company. • One advantage of a dress up policy is that employees are likely to look acceptable even if they bend the rules. A dress up policy would also increase the reputation of the company because it will appear more professional. A dress-down policy simply confuses employees about what is considered appropriate. Casual dress policy can may simply cause more problems within the organization. I think you will find it most appropriate and in the best......

Unsolicited Emails

...Patrick Schuyler February 22, 2015 Business Ethics Professor Christianson Unsolicited Emails Unsolicited emails do much more harm than good in this world. It is very unethical for online companies to send out any spam or unwanted emails to any person who makes a purchase online. Maybe a receipt email from the company you bought from is ok, but receiving emails without asking from companies with similar products is ridiculous. These unsolicited emails could always have the chance of opening up some type of virus onto the device you open it with. According to chapter four, they are considered to be an invasion of one’s privacy. Also, these unsolicited emails are wrong and unethical because society prospers through the struggle of market-places. An invasion of someone’s privacy is clearly thought of as unethical which is in essence what companies are doing when they send out unsolicited emails. What happens when you open a spam email and it crashes your computer? Would you say that the email has invaded your life in a bad way? The answer is yes. These businesses invade people’s lives by sending emails to people who never want them in the first place. Citizens have the right to their own lives and who enters them. No way should someone else force something into your life without approval. As John Locke states, “Though the earth and all inferior creatures be common to all men, yet every man has a property in his own person; this nobody has any right to but himself.”......

Person Email

...Should Justin Ellsworth’s Parents Have Been Given Access to His Email? Abstract The question is, “Should Justin Ellsworth’s parent been given access to his email?” There are many things to consider when asking this question. Did they have the right to see it? Did he want them to see it? How would anyone ever know what his wishes were if they never talked about this subject? Did the parents only want the email to see what he was up to, or his personal thoughts? Would there be something in the e-mail that would make them think differently of their son? Is it legal for the parents to see this email? Is this a violation of privacy and policy? These are all fair questions in an ethical battle such as this one. What kind of stance would you take? In a perfect world, everyone would be happy with the outcome of any type of conflict morally, or ethically. However, we all have minds, opinions, and that pesky thing called…the law. In the situation of Justin Ellsworth, he didn’t really have a choice at all. He died as an adult, fighting for his country, and his parents wanted access to his personal email. We ask, is this a breech of policy, or is it a right of the parents to see this email because he was their son, and they wanted to know his final thoughts? There are issues here though, that go beyond just what the parents wanted. Issues exist such as whether or not Justin himself would have wanted them to see it, and whether or not the internet provider had......

Recently hired by Tech-Shield, Lauren is quite excited about her new position and eagerly awaits meeting her team of analysts.
