Worldwide Branding Member Anthony Beasley Takes a Stand Against Corporate Bullying Today

Anthony BeasleyAnthony Beasley, a recent Worldwide Branding inductee, recently announced his participation in a campaign against bullying in the workplace.

Mr. Beasley will be a key presenter at this year’s Safety Institute of Australia ‘Visions’ Safety Conference on the Gold Coast which is taking place today, November 17, 2014. As part of the presentation’s pre-qualification processes, Mr. Beasley had to prepare a White Paper regarding the need for Accredited Training in the topic of “Managing and Preventing the Risk of Workplace Bullying.” This is because in Australia, there is currently no accredited competency-based program.

Mr. Beasley’s White Paper was accepted, and his team has supported him in the development of an excellent Prezi based presentation.

And in exploring beyond the White Paper, the topic generated such interest with Mr. Beasley’s team and clients, that he and his colleagues recently submitted a detailed application to the Australian Skills Regulator (ASQA) with two draft units to be accepted and released as nationally accredited. These are the first of their kind in Australia.

ASTRA Group Services LogoMr. Beasley and his team has also prepared a media release to align with this exciting development in a topic that costs our economy between $6B to $36Billion per year, and has tragically taken lives for those on the receiving end of bullying.

Regardless of the country or industry – Mr. Beasley feels that the topic of bullying in the workplace is a subject that is of interest and value to all.

He recently purchased St. Ali North, a cafe in Brunswick East; he told Time Out Melbourne that he has intentions of making it “Brooklyn-style in attitude, with a bit of a nod to Spain because it’s me – we’ve got a cool cabinet so we might do some pinxtos and charcuterie – but it will essentially be a Melbourne dining hall.”

Michael Waring Shares Updates on Australia’s Postal System and the Country’s Number One Brand

Michael WaringWorldwide Branding member Michael Waring, a Postal Officer and Communications Specialist serving the Delivery Division of the Australia Post, is in charge of overseeing the creation of the Code of Ethics in a corporate organization to strengthen cultural pillars of success in the workplace. With a wealth of knowledge and experience in his field, he recently received a 25th anniversary plaque from the Australia Post, as well.

Mr. Waring recently announced the latest updates made at the Australia Post on his website:

Over the last 10 years the acceleration of decline of small letter has continued but AP has prepared well in putting brakes on these changes.

The first launched earlier this year was Posts rebranding of its freight fleet.

The blue trucks with Startrack emblem are keeping up to increasing demand of Internet Shopping and voyage of parcel across many networks.

The fact is parcels are outweighing letters for first time in history but the humble postman has been part of these changes delivering more packets and scanning articles for reciept at point of delivery.

Australia Post CEO Ahmed Fahour, a former New York Banker, says he is preparing new products and solutions to allieviate further changes in delivery of mail and e-commerce solutions for customers.

StarTrack will not just be a local solution but will handle our International customers’ needs in Australia giving Post that added edge.

Apple and Australian Pharmaceuticals are just two important customers.

Sydney and Melbourne will complete newly fitted extensions with new cutting edge parcel sorting delivery technology and new bar coding with speed accuracy set to move parcels quicker and smarter than ever.

This also means the human resources of Australia Post need to be at their best so Code of Ethics needs to be implemented well and Safety remain on top of agenda so effect on organisation is limited and brand remains best in country.
