By Paul EddisonOf all the injuries suffered in the build-up to this World Cup, it’s hard to find one more catastrophic to his team’s chances than that of Sergio Parisse.The heartbeat of the Italian side will miss the opening encounter with France, at least, and a heavy defeat could all but end Italy’s quarter-final hopes before the competition gets into full swing.To call it a headache for head coach Jacques Brunel would be an understatement, but it’s hardly the only distraction facing the Azzurri boss.With the Italian domestic game in disarray, Brunel has seen the national team’s form dip alarmingly, and now he’s come under fire from veteran centre Mirco Bergamasco.The younger of the instantly-recognisable brothers missed out on selection for Italy‘s World Cup squad, and has since revealed that Brunel has struggled when it comes to communication with the squad.The Frenchman speaks Italian, but according to Mirco, whose older brother Mauro is appearing in his fifth World Cup, Brunel restricts himself to communicating with just four or five senior players.The absent Parisse is of course one of those, but the worry is that with the split between senior players and the rest of the squad, Italy are not making the most of their potential. Italy coach Jacques Brunel and captain Sergio Parisse (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Of course discord between players and coach doesn’t necessarily spell disaster, four years ago Marc Lièvremont famously invited his players out for a beer after their loss to Tonga and was stood up by the whole squad.They went onto reach the final and came within a whisker of winning the title, but it’s impossible to see Italy doing the same, especially if their talisman Parisse doesn’t come back soon. Friction between players and coach Jacques Brunel could threaten to derail Italy’s hopes of making the quarter finals at the World Cup And Bergamasco admits it’s unlikely the Azzurri will make it to the last eight for the first time in their history.“To be honest, I’m not very optimistic,” Bergamasco said this week on French radio.“The squad is lacking serenity and belief. And I want to be clear: I’m not saying this because I’ve been left out of the squad.“The coach doesn’t have relations with the players, he doesn’t speak and he doesn’t communicate with them,” he added.“He has failed to create a group, both on and off the pitch. He usually only refers to four or five players and forgets the rest. And that’s not enough when there are 31 (players).“When one of these four or five players is missing, the squad loses belief and collapses.”

Employers in the UK have been given longer to comply with a controversialaccounting standard for pensions, which has been blamed by some firms for theclosure of final salary pension schemes. The FRS 17 standard, which will mean that businesses will have to reportannual changes in the value of their pension funds in their main financialstatements, was due to have been adopted by firms with accounting periodsending in June this year. But the Accounting Standards Board (ASB) has extended the deadline for thenew system until 2005 following an announcement that the InternationalAccounting Standards Board is to introduce a similar international accountingstandard. ASB chairman Mary Keegan said the decision to defer the implementation ofFRS 17 was taken to prevent employers having to change their pension accountingtwice when the international standard is introduced. Businesses do not like the FRS rule because it forces them to report annualchanges in the value of their pension schemes. Companies including British Airways and BT have partly blamed the FRS 17 accountingrule for the closure of their final salary pension schemes. The CIPD’s assistant director general, Duncan Brown, welcomed the decisionto defer the introduction of FRS 17 but said it would not take the pressure offfinal salary pension (defined benefit) schemes in the long run. He said: “The fundamental dynamics causing problems for defined benefitschemes are not going to go away. “The cost of schemes, which are heavily focused on the stock market,are going up, funds are low, we are retiring earlier and people are livinglonger.” Susan Anderson, CBI director of HR policy, welcomed the decision to delaythe implementation of FRS 17 but also called for changes to be made to thestandard. By Ben Willmott Schemes are showing deficitA survey of 146 of the UK’s topcompanies reveals that more than 60 per cent have pension schemes which showdeficit under FRS 17.The study by Mercer Human Resource Consulting reveals that ofthese, the deficit exceeds 10 per cent of scheme liabilities in 38 per cent ofcases. Nearly 40 per cent of firms have pension funds of a size exceeding 50per cent of company net assets.The report states: “Managing pension liabilities for manycompanies has become critical because of their size relative to the overallbusiness and this is driving changes to benefit provision and investmentstrategy.”www.mercer.com Delay over accounting standard for pensionsOn 9 Jul 2002 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed.

Previous Article Next Article In superhero plots, I love the way that no-one can ever guess the leadingman’s identity, whether it’s the latest celluloid offering of the Daredevil,Spiderman or even TV cartoon Hong Kong Phooey. The same uncertainty exists in the heroic business of keeping the customerscoming back for more – what Irish supermarket mogul Feargal Quinn calls ‘theboomerang principle’. The few that understand it – which include Richer Sounds, First Direct andASDA – love to boast about it. As Alan Hughes, chief executive of First Direct,explains: “We’re happy for anyone to come in and look at what we do,because we know that while they can copy our systems and our tools, it’s ourpeople who make the difference.” How smug is that? And as an ex-employee,I can confirm that they are so sure of themselves, they really do organisecoach trips for their competitors to visit their call centres. Why then are they so comfortable with their superiority? Is customer serviceso hard to understand? No. Are their people smarter? No. Is it because theyknow their competitors are afraid to copy them? Could be. To apply the boomerang principle requires people who can buildrelationships, listen, and innovate. Realising that is easy, but not necessarily cheap. It took dismal results atAlliance & Leicester for senior managers to see (after paying good money toconsultants, including yours truly, and KPMG) that a customer-first strategyrequires a people-first reality. Its newly appointed chief executive Richard Pym used this newly gainedsuperhuman vision to initiate the most extensive change programme theorganisation has ever attempted. It encompasses 80 different consecutiveprojects to fulfil its ambition to be the ‘most customer-focused financialservices organisation – bar none’. To its immense credit, it did not stop with mere technology or processredesign, but instead launched a plethora of cultural initiatives to free upthose that Pym calls ‘people who love people’ on his chatty intranet. It is nocoincidence that Which Magazine awarded Alliance & Leicester thetitle of best provider of service among high street banks. Previously, the board didn’t have the guts to do the most important things,including culture change, respect for human potential, open communication, awillingness to accept failure and admit mistakes. The good news is that financially-trained Pym no longer sees empowerment orservice as ‘soft and fluffy’, but instead as the hardest, most influential waysto improve shareholder returns. It has just announced an 18 per cent increasein profits. Is this the end? I hope not. Not before the power to satisfy customers isgiven to the people who serve them. That is the ultimate manifestation of thecustomer-first, people-first logic. Only when your organisation is no longerafraid to follow that logic to its conclusion will its performance andrelationship surpass the smug, but superlative, First Direct. Max will discuss these issues further at the Unshrink the Peopleseminar in Leeds, 19 March 2003. E-mail [email protected] Related posts:No related photos. Comments are closed.
