Quiet News Day Episode 98

28 Sep

Well we are just two more episodes away from our centenary milestone and we are showing no signs of slowing down in our old age with this jam packed podcast featuring the latest social media, journalism and public relations news and views.

Fresh faced from a week away and back at his co-hosts side Peter Laing and Scott Douglas talk through the big issues this week, including media regulation, how TUPE is infiltrating the PR profession, access to journalism and why twitter is moving home. All this in under 40minutes!

    Come on Peter do your homework ;-) You were asking about TUPE. Don’t you remember when it was all the rage to ‘outsource’ your services to companies that would cut costs by employing people on the minimum wage? Contracts were being won by those who could race to the bottom on wages, rather than bringing in innovation or more efficient working methods.

    And for both of you – why would winning an account mean you sack your own staff? You are winning the account which means you are winning more work. Your existing staff are not getting any work taken away from them.

    You may have to take on a member of staff (if they were dedicated to the account) but your business is growing, and in all probability there is still going to be more work to be carried out by your existing staff.

    For example the bits of work that were done at either end of the account team – the 10% of time that the MD spent on the account, or said they spent on the account, and the 25% the Account execs/admins spent on the account. That work could pass on to your team.

      All great points, as ever Jason.
      Think it’s fair to say that Peter and I strayed into unfamiliary territory with our TUPE chat.
      So always great to have feedback from someone knowledgeable.
      I hope you’re keeping well – and enjoying conference season?
      And that there haven’t been any recent incidents of QND ruining your poker hands? :-)
