AskTen - Nine things you may not have noticed last week!

1. How to set yourself up for your best year yet. The new year offers an opportunity for fresh starts and new adventures - like making a long-anticipated career move. But before embarking on the journey ahead, you should reflect on the past year, which can help leaders and managers get a clear vision of their goals for 2022. To help gain perspective and set yourself up for a productive and successful year, here are 10 questions to ask yourself. READ MORE >>

2. High Pay Day 2022. On Friday morning last week, the average FTSE 100 CEO earned as much as the typical UK worker does in an entire year. It is the first time CEOs have needed to work into a fourth day to make the median full-time UK salary since the think tank started analysing “high pay day” in 2011. According to the report, average annual pay for CEOs fell to £2.7 million in 2020 from £3.25 million due to pay cuts and bonus cancellations during the pandemic. It still remains around 86 times higher than the median full-time salary of £31,285. High Pay Centre

3. Inflation could surge to 7%. Inflation could reach as high as 7% if ministers fail to cap an increase in energy bills due in April, according to internal government estimates. The energy regulator is reviewing the existing price cap, which is expected to rise by more than 50% on present estimates. Government projections are understood to suggest that such a rise could help push inflation a further 2% in April from its level of 5.1% in November. The Times

4. Keeping remote workers engaged. One of the biggest victims of the pandemic's remote-work revolution is company loyalty. Work-from-home employees are disconnected from supervisors, co-workers and office culture. That isolation can overwhelm the benefits – improved work-life balance, for one – and eat away at one's relationship with the job. Management must learn that loyalty isn't about where the job is being done, but how it is done, celebrated, rewarded and overseen. Financial Times

5. What’s in a ‘workcation’? With the realisation that a lot of jobs can be done from anywhere comes an expectation that, maybe, total vacations aren’t always necessary. Resorts are offering “work wellness” packages that allow people to get some work done while taking fitness and other classes in a luxury environment. If these guests are leading hybrid lives at home, the getaway may help restore balance. Does the prospect of working away from home appeal to you, if you're WFH? Would you pay for one yourself or only take one paid for by your employer? CONTACT US >>

 6. Highway Code changes. The AA has warned that two-thirds of drivers are unaware of major revisions to the Highway Code that will come into force at the end of this month. The changes include new rules that require road users to give way to pedestrians at junctions, and guidance on how drivers should overtake cyclists and open car doors. The revised code also sets a “hierarchy” of road users, requiring those who pose the greatest risk of causing harm in accidents to take the most care. The Guardian

7. Electric car sales soar. Carmakers have reported booming UK sales of electric vehicles. The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders said carmakers sold 190,000 battery electric cars across the country last year, accounting for about 11.6% of total sales. These figures were up from 108,000 in 2020, when battery-powered cars accounted for just 6.6% of new cars bought in the UK. The Guardian said sales of battery electric vehicles were a “bright spot” for the industry amid disruption to global supply chains. The Guardian

8. UK records more than 150,000 Covid deaths. The UK has reached another grim milestone in the pandemic, becoming the first country in Europe to surpass 150,000 coronavirus deaths. Some 150,057 people have died within 28 days of a positive Covid test since the pandemic began. The UK is the seventh country to pass 150,000 deaths, after the US, Brazil, India, Russia, Mexico and Peru. Boris Johnson said every death "is a profound loss to the friends and communities affected and my thoughts and condolences are with them". BBC

9. Dementia to triple by 2050. Dementia cases are expected to almost triple across the world by 2050, experts are warning. Researchers in The Lancet Public Health journal say that by 2050, more than 153m people could have the condition, up from 57m in 2019. Although the predicted rise is largely down to ageing and growing populations, unhealthy lifestyles including high rates of smoking, obesity and diabetes are also a factor. Dementia is already the seventh leading cause of death worldwide. BBC

10. The bottom line. A sixth of people who retire before the age of 66 go back to work. Around half of them say it was either to get “a new sense of purpose” or because they missed the social aspects of work. The Daily Telegraph
