  1. May I ask why you have said this? Because if the tables were turned and I asked her to pay she wouldn't, many times I have joked with her and she has point blankly said no. ---------- Post added 31-05-2014 at 15:17 ---------- I have distance myself with her because of materialistic ways but she has always given me sound advice in life for my simple promblems and she does listen to me moaning so I don;t not want to be her friend if you get the gist. Actually it was her who suggested York designer outlet because she said she managed to get good qauilty clothing and bags, shoes within a reasonable budget and she knows I am on a budget. ---------- Post added 31-05-2014 at 15:18 ---------- I have distance myself with her because of materialistic ways but she has always given me sound advice in life for my simple promblems and she does listen to me moaning so I don't not want to be her friend if you get the gist.

  2. Hi, I have asked a close friend to come with me shopping to York designer outlet to help me shape for my style as she is similar size to me and understands my figure issues. She has agreed however has stated that I don’t mind helping you but because I am living in my savings as her PHD funding has come to an end and she is writing her thesis and looking for jobs she has asked me to pay for her train ticket (she will also be shopping at York) and to buy her lunch from a restaurant. The total cost for her to come shopping with me will be £30. Do you think this is cheeky of her to ask? I have in the past asked friends (who no longer live in Sheffield) to come shopping with me and help me with a something I am looking for and they have been happy to do so and as a thank you I have brought them coffee. This is the first time my close friend has asked me to pay for her, not sure because of the distance we are travelling that's why she has asked and due to her circumstances. Although she has mentioned to me her mother gives her some money and she has £7000 left in her savings to live off for the next 3 months. Do you think she is bullying me so she doesn't have to spend her own money? If you were me would you challenge her on this? Thanks and appreciate any advice.
  3. Hi, Does anyone buy food for the homeless? If so do you ever feel obliged to buy food every time you see the same homeless person. Just wondered what people views were on this were.
  4. Hi, an employee informed me that they forgot to clock in, I then asked them to clock in whilst she was in the presence of an F&B manager. The manager said I have a busy conference set up does the employee have to go now. I made the mistake and accepted it but from a health and safety perspective if a fire happened, no one would know the employee is in the building. How can I rectify what I have done here so moving forward the manager is made aware that it is important for an employee to clock in and out? How could I have dealt with the situation differently? How can I draft an email to keep a paper trail that the manger has been made aware of the situation, so in future I have something to refer to if they fail to support this happening. Thanks for reading and any suggestions :-)
  5. I am in a standalone role; I have very little experience in the area of my field I have branched out. I am covering maternity leave; I was given 4 weeks of training and then was left on my own to do the job. I have a mentor from head office that sees me once a week. I am unhappy in my role as I am finding I am taking twice as long to do something because I am not sure how to do it, so need to spend time looking at policies and procedures as well reading in my own time at work. I find every day I am taking my work home, I feel depressed because I am giving up my social life. The training I have received is inadequate, I am hoping to save up some money and pay for my own training as I have no confidence in doing the job. Can my lack of confidence be partly due to lack of training or more my personality issue? Second of all what can I do to help myself? Thanks
  6. Hi, if you had so much work to do and have forgot to type some minutes from the last meeting, I am in a standalone role, so I have no one in my team to delegate the task to. These minutes are needed to be used in tomorrow meeting. I have done a draft copy of the minutes, how can I sincerely apologise to the manager and to have damage limitation on this missed deadline Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks
  7. When is it appropriate to pay for external training courses yourself when working with an organisation? Thanks
  8. Any tips on how to deal with strong characters in the workplace? I am an introvert and find I get overshadowed by people who express themselves in large groups. I fade into the background and I want to be noticed but without the look at me type attention. Thanks
  9. Hi, I am relatively in a new job position where I have been given more authority. This may sound trivial but does anyone have any tips how to tell someone off for not wearing the correct uniform without being too harsh but conveying the message they need to sort this out.
  10. Hi, if you are 27 and someone who is 52 years old tells you have a redundant personality do they mean you are boring and lack inspiration for other people? Thanks
  11. Do you think there is too much employment law that protects employees or vice versa? Have we got a compensation culture that encourages people to raise concerns in employment? Or due to case law being a difficult area there are no rules set in place to make the assumption there are too many employment rights to employees. I find managers often are cynical on the view that employers have too many rights.
  12. There is a theme each month and the forms we issue also asks the reason why they have selected that person. However employees can only vote for one person. The nominations are read in a staff meeting and a winner is decided and then announced at a monthly presentation.
  13. Where I work we have a system whereby employees can vote for their colleagues each month. The employee with the most votes gets some money and other prizes. There are voting papers in the staff canteen and managers have been asked to encourage their team members to vote. Not all staff has access to computers at work so the voting is all done paper based. However we are finding that there is a lot of tactical voting where some people vote for each other and we are not getting enough votes in fact only a 1/3 vote out of the workforce. We have thought about attaching voting slips to payslips however in the past this has not worked. Does anyone have any suggestions how to encourage staff to vote?
  14. What are some good unisex gift ideas for a raffle prize to reward employees each month? So far I can think of gift cards, chocolate, CD's and DVDs (however the latter two is difficult as I don't know what kind of music and films, comedies or shows people are into). Can anybody make suggestions for what the best way to tackle buying gifts for raffle prizes is? I was thinking of getting everybody to write down on a piece a paper things people like and to then tally up their preferences and to buy the most popular tallied? The budget is £50 and I need to buy 5-6 gifts! Many Thanks
  15. Hi, does anyone know of a Van and Man hire that are called Dominic and Tom, if so would you have their phone numbers. I have used this service before with them but as a lost my phone this year I lost their contact details. They are both based in Sheffield. Many Thanks
