Do you often read a press release from an organisation and wonder what frigging planet they are on?
There is a line between writing for effect (ie promoting your own services via awareness) and writing what amounts to (IMO) a load of mis-leading, headline grabbing negative tosh.
Well today the CIPD ventured into the latter zone with some more of their doom spreading material. Obviously have a read of the article yourself - 1.6million private sector jobs needed to offset cuts - and make your own opinion.
They are not talking about 2011 or even 2012, they are talking about 2015/16!. Correct me if I am wrong, but the public sector job losses will be happening in the next 6-12 months (if not sooner). What is wrong with dealing with the here and now - strategies of how to help the soon to be 100k's of unemployed people find new opportunities and new jobs? Do these people really give a crap about 2015/6? I am sure they are more concerned with 2011!
What is the point of spinning a headline of a negative and depressive nature when the UK is just starting to turn the corner (so it seems anyway!).
At the bottom of the article they add "The CIPD considers the private sector perfectly capable of adding more than 300,000 net new jobs per year by 2015-16..." >>> That is up to 1.8 million new jobs!
So why didn't such an influencial organisation re-title the headline; UK to create 1.8 million jobs in the next 6 years?
Why? in my opinion they are a shameless headline grabbing organisation that are more concerned with column inches that making a real difference!
Rant over - now breathing normally again!
