e-biz in brief

This week’s e-biz news in brief

Unusual ways of saying
‘thank you’

HR managers looking
for more unusual ways to reward staff can choose from a new set of experiences
that can soon be bought online from Virgin Incentives. They include a package
called The Boardroom, which entails seminars with leading business figures. The
full range of experiences span adrenaline-pumping air-, water- and motorsports
to the rather more civilised lunch at Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir Aux Quat’
Saisons. And if your sales team has bust every target this year, how about
rewarding them with a week for 26 people on Richard Branson’s private island,
Necker, at £275,000?   www.virginincentives.co.uk

Single path to
management learning

Financial training
company Time2Learn is using Pathlore’s Learning Management System (LMS) to
plan, deliver and manage its training courses via a single portal. "We
needed a sophisticated system that enabled us to record and track users through
the learning process and then assess their performance in e-learning as well as
traditional classroom courses," says CEO John Newlands.   www.pathlore.com

Scottish site switches

Scotland On Line is
replacing its established Recruitment.Scotland.net with enhanced online
recruitment service Scottishappointments.com. The service gives employers
greater management control over vacancies, allowing them to receive
applications and search a database of CVs to find active jobseekers.
Scottishappointments focuses purely on the Scottish market and serves small
businesses up to blue-chip clients. It claims it will attract over 20,000 new
users every month. ScotlandOnline.com receives more than 420,000 users a
month.   www.scotlandonline.com    www.scottishappointments.com
