She keeps … Web: www.cuinsight.com Details As summertime gets into full swing it can be incredibly hard to keep your workforce optimistic and motivated. Most of your employees have dreams of the beach and sunny skies on their minds, as opposed to the workload in front of them. As a leader, it’s your responsibility to maintain a productive work environment. Here are three tips for keeping your employees engaged and optimistic not only during summer, but the whole year through.Maintain focusWhen children are in summer camps and vacations are on the horizon, it’s natural for employees to have distractions. It’s important you check in with them periodically to ensure that they are keeping track with the work that needs to be done. Help them to prioritize items that are time sensitive. Also, if your organization’s workload lessens during the summer months, be sure to give your employees purpose.Be flexibleIf you provide your staff with adequate time-off, they will be incredibly appreciative and also stronger employees. When professionals are given incentives, they feel valued and understood. So, if an employee requests a reasonable amount of time off, needs to leave early for a personal reason, or simply wants to take a walk when the weather’s nice, be flexible and agreeable.Concentrate on connectingSummer can be a great time for reconnecting with your staff on a personal level. If things are slow in the office, take time to engage with them and encourage open communication. You don’t have to always take them out to lunch, but even just the action of reaching out and checking in can make a huge difference in their morale.

Inage via: numusiczone.comLocal gospel artiste, Sernel Florent will host the 2nd Annual All-White Christian Party this Friday, November 25th, 2011 at the Alliance Francaise Building on Elmshall Road from 8pm.The event which was conceptualized by Sernel himself in 2010 is aimed at giving patrons an opportunity to enjoy Christian music; giving God thanks for bringing them to yet another year.He said patrons are asked to wear something white on that night which in itself signifies purity.“This year it’s the second all white Christian party; it is actually a night of Christian entertainment where you will hear singing, some people will do free styling, we will have drumming competition, keyboard competition, dancing competition and local gospel bands will be performing. So it’s really a whole night of Christian entertainment”.He said that patrons can look forward to enjoying clean Christian music by some of the top gospel groups on the island.“On that night we will be having groups like Sons of Zion; a group of talented young people from the community of Coulibistrie and we will also have Sanctified, that’s another upcoming gospel group from the community of St Joseph. And of course, Sernel Florent”.One of the major highlights of the event will be the compilation of video footage for Sernel’s new video ‘Touch Me Again’. During his performance, patrons will have the opportunity to be a part of the production; which is expected to be aired on local, regional and international television stations. Sernel said that a lot of hard work is being put into this video, which will soon be released.“That’s the part that I am very excited about. Over the years I’ve been looking at television; stations like Tempo and I said to myself that one day I would like to see myself up there. I am now getting the opportunity to start shooting my own video so I will be taking some shots at the All-White party which will be in the video of my new song called ‘Touch Me Again’. The music is being played on the radio and a lot of people are enjoying the song. I will be shooting the video very soon for this song and I know that it will take the Caribbean by storm”.
