Aldi has pledged to create another 4,000 jobs as part of its plans to open 100 stores by the end of next year. 

The supermarket has already hired 3,000 staff this year thanks to booming demand for food during lockdown. 

Aldi has also expanded its existing £1billion investment over two years to £1.3bn – the largest in its 30-year history.

Leadership development concept. A magnifying glass focusing on a wooden figure of a person.

The words “leader” and “manager” are often used interchangeably. But, in a work setting, they have very different meanings.

Management concerns the day-to-day activities of running a team, holding performance reviews, assigning tasks, and overseeing schedules. Leadership is about motivating employees to get the best out of them, getting people to believe in what your team is doing, and achieving results.

Not all leaders are managers, but all managers should be leaders. Yet, when companies appoint managers internally, they often promote people with no leadership skills and don’t offer them training to help get them up to speed. They don’t have a leadership development program to make sure they have leaders of the future ready when existing ones leave.

Overview: What is a leadership development program?

Governor General Julie Payette gives a wave as she waits before delivering the throne speech in the Senate chamber in Ottawa on Sept. 23, 2020.

The Liberal government will launch a campaign to create one million jobs as part of its plan to dig the Canadian economy out of the ditch created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

That plan includes extending the Canadian Emergency Wage subsidy program until the summer of 2021, spending money on infrastructure and handing out incentives to employers that hire and retrain workers.

The million jobs promised by the government would return the country to pre-recession levels after the pandemic caused financial devastation even worse than the 2008 financial crisis.

The policies were outlined by Governor General Julie Payette in the speech from the throne, which she delivered in the Senate chamber in Ottawa.

Why is our economy failing to create jobs?- The New Indian Express

The announcement of the quarterly or annual GDP growth numbers is a feast for the economists, but the common man is always stuck with the age-old question: What does it mean for him/her? While in the stable pre-Covid scenario, it wouldn’t have meant anything starkly different, it does now. Earlier, there was a hope of revival and any downturn came as a shock. This period is different as it comes on top of a struggling Indian economy and a policy paralysis for the last few years.

All indicators that have come out paint the same picture—the great fall of our economy. Annual GDP growth for this fiscal (FY21) is expected to hit negative double digits. The gravity of this economic inactivity in terms of jobs now provides a glaring picture for everyone. Close to 94 lakh people have withdrawn Rs  35,445 crore from their EPF accounts in the last four

Trump Said TikTok Deal Would Create $5B Patriotic Education Fund. ByteDance Says It Has No Clue

President Donald Trump suggested Saturday that the TikTok deal he gave his “blessing” to involved a $5 billion education fund for the United States, but ByteDance claims it didn’t hear of this until media reports emerged.

What Happened: “They are going to pay $5bn into a fund for education so we can educate people as to the real history of our country. We are getting very close to that deal,” the president had told his supporters on Saturday in North Carolina, the Financial Times reported.

ByteDance, in a Chinese social media post on Sunday, said it was the first time it was hearing of such a fund, according to Reuters.

“The company has been committed to investing in the education field, and plans to work with partners and global shareholders to launch online classroom projects based on AI and video technology for students around the world,” the TikTok parent said

Trump Says He Will Create Commission to Promote ‘Patriotic’ Education | National News

President Donald Trump on Thursday announced that he would soon sign an executive order to create a “National Commission to Promote Patriotic Education” in a speech that was heavily focused on politics that seemed directed at his conservative base supporters.

He said it will be called “The 1776 Commission” and “encourage our educators to teach our children about the miracle of American history.”

Trump’s speech from the White House History Conference at the National Archives in Washington, D.C., focused on bashing “The 1619 Project,” which is a New York Times project aimed at reframing “the country’s history by placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of our national narrative.” Earlier this month he threatened to withhold federal funding for public schools in California that incorporated the 1619 Project into the history curriculum.

The president slammed the project and likened the teaching of
