Holiday push overs – Companies that have unlimited allowances

By |30th October, 2017|Categories: Global Lingo Blog|

A week of autumnal walks along some of South Devon’s beautiful beaches has left me with the feeling that I want more; more time to spend with my young family, more time to explore the world whilst I am still fit and healthy to do so and, more time for my poor husband who gets up every day before the larks to slog it into the city to put food on the table.

So now you’d be forgiven again for assuming, it was the stay at home mums brigade that stood beside me willing [...]

By |19th September, 2017|Categories: Global Lingo Blog|

A recent ruling by the European Court of Human Rights sheds some new light on whether it really is acceptable for bosses to play big brother and monitor the use of workers’ private email. Privacy and technology Ok so it’s 2017 and this is the world of the smart phone.
