SEXUAL HARRASSMENT: DEALING WITH THE PESTS (2015-06-26)
As sad as it may be, the incidents of a particular colleague walking past your table and greeting you, or even asking about your weekend activities may not be as ‘innocent’ as you may first have thought.
ECONOMIC CRIME IN SOUTH AFRICA: FACT OR FICTION? (2015-05-27)
It’s a fact.  No matter which global or regional surveys a person may refer to, the latest 2014/15 surveys on economic crime all show that crime of this nature is on the increase.  Economic crime -- particularly fraud and corruption -- are causing organisations in both the public and private sector substantial financial losses, and increasing pressure on business to grow their revenues together with market volatility could be just some of the reasons why these crime statistics are increasing.

In a world filled with many selfish acts, it is refreshing to witness an act where someone -- or an organisation -- goes beyond their call of duty to help another without expecting anything in return.  Indeed, there may be a number of these selfless deeds taking place which are not seen or promoted enough.  Many of the people behind these good deeds are in fact people who do not actively seek recognition for their work and they continue their work driven by their passion, regardless of who may be watching.  Upon reflecting more about the term ‘selfless deeds’, one may be reminded of the Dalai Lama XIV’s wise words saying that our prime purpose in this life is about helping others and if we cannot help them, we shouldn’t hurt them.  This makes so much sense.

ADVOCATE THULI MADONSELA: BOLSTERING GOVERNANCE WITH CGF (2015-05-26)
