Kevin Hogarth, director of international resourcing at Capital OnePublications I usually read Sunday papers especially The Sunday Timesand the Observer business sections. I find these give me a summary of the keybusiness issues of the past week and also preview the issues likely to arise inthe week ahead. There are also a number of interesting case studies ofbusinesses or business leaders. I find it difficult to find the time to read adaily paper so tend to pick up business news from the radio – Wake Up to Moneyon 5Live and Today Business Report on Radio 4. Books The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People (Covey) is wellwritten, easy to read and full of sensible ideas. The Paradox of Success (JohnR O’Neill) was very thought-provoking and especially useful for anyone involvedin working with individual executives or executive teams. It is also good froma personal development, renewal and work-life balance perspective. I have readlots of Handy’s books and I think The Empty Raincoat is the best. HumanResource Champions (Ulrich) – is pretty much the key HR guru so I get no prizesfor originality but is always worth reading or re-reading. Now Discover YourStrengths by Marcus Buckingham is a refreshing look at how we can improve ourperformance and that of the people who work for us by concentrating on what wedo well. TV I don’t get much time to watch TV and don’t really watch anybusiness programmes as I get all the information from the radio. Radio 5Live and Radio 4 are indispensable. Internet I use the internet more than any other media for informationand news and some of the main sites I visit are ft.com, vault.com, wetfeet.com,mckinseyquarterly, recruitingroundtable.com, hbsp.harvard.edu and fortune.com Previous Article Next Articlelast_img read more

Hoosier Survey: Indiana residents split on House Impeachment inquiry

first_imgMuncie, IN— Hoosiers are split on the House impeachment inquiry on President Trump, according to the results of the Old National Bank/Ball State University 2019 Hoosier Survey. In the telephone survey of 600 adult Hoosiers, only 43 percent of those responding approved of the House impeachment inquiry compared to 48 percent who disapproved.“Unlike recent national polls, which indicate a slight majority of Americans approve of the House impeachment inquiry against President Trump, this statewide survey shows that Hoosiers are less supportive of the inquiry” said Chad Kinsella, an assistant professor of political science and survey analyst at the Bowen Center for Public Affairs, which conducts the annual public opinion survey. Approval of the impeachment inquiry is polarized along partisan lines. “The survey indicates that 77 percent of Republicans disapprove of the impeachment inquiry, independents are evenly split on approval and disapproval of the inquiry at 44 percent each way, and 82 percent of Democrats approve of the impeachment inquiry,” Kinsella said. “Clearly, this is a divisive issue among Hoosiers as it is nationally and will set the stage for the upcoming presidential election in 2020.” Survey MethodologyThe Old National Bank / Ball State University 2019 Hoosier Survey obtained telephone interviews with a representative sample of 600 adults living in Indiana. Telephone interviews were conducted by landline (315) and cell phone (285, including 200 with adults with no landline phone). The survey was conducted by Issues & Answers Network, Inc. (I&A). Interviews were done in English from October 8-28, 2019. Statistical results are weighted to correct known demographic discrepancies. The margin of sampling error for the complete set of weighted data is ±5.2 percentage points.last_img read more
