The investment validates recent progress and will enable SCALINX to meet growing market demand, drive the technology into new markets, increase capacity to support new customers and further expanding its team. SCALINX aims to be a leading supplier for the French and European defense markets and a key player in the communications industry and the 5G wireless communication transformation. The equity round is led by WaterStart Capital, an accelerator fund and investment firm from NCI and Normandie Participations, another venture capital fund, both specialized in financing highly innovative startups. The round also involves a group of top French banks private equity subsidiaries including BNP Paribas Développement (the investment arm of BNP Paribas), CEN Innovation (the investment arm of Caisse d’Epargne ), and Unexo (the investment arm of Crédit Agricole ). The round was coordinated by SE13 Advisors, a French independent advisory firm in Venture & Private Equity. Hussein Fakhoury, SCALINX Founder and CEO says, “ This investment not only validates what we have built so far but also enables us to continue pursuing our vision of becoming a key European supplier of high-speed data converters with wider bandwidth, lowest power consumption and higher integration level.

With this first round of support, we see SCALINX driving European leadership and becoming a major player in the communications and defense industries, in a market dominated by non-European companies,” said Yves Guiol, Venture partner at NCI.

Pub group sets course to push staff retention

Pub group sets course to push staff retention

Pub chain JD Wetherspoon is set to introduce a professional qualificationfor managers to improve the career path of its staff and improve retention. The group, which expects to add another 90 pubs to its 570-strong estate, isto develop a formal qualification which will be mandatory for all its managers.Wetherspoon’s personnel and training director Su Beacham, who used to be apub manager in the group, said the move would encourage staff to stay with thecompany and move up the career ladder: “It’s part of an on-going drive tohelp staff build a career path in the pub industry. We want to send out themessage that you can join the trade, get good training, a professionalqualification and move up the career ladder,” she said. The course, which is being developed by Leeds Metropolitan University, willbe the equivalent to a HND and will be called the professional diploma inlicensed retail. The scheme will be based on workplace training and a series of exams. Thefirm expects it to take around two years to attain the qualification. The firm, which employs 13,000 people, has been working on improvingretention for the past five years because of the high turnover rate of staff. Wetherspoon has reduced staff turnover through a package of improved pay andtraining from 180 per cent in 1997 to around 48 per cent this year. The turnover among managers has also dropped from 25 to 12 per cent and thecompany wants staff to be able to move up through the organisation rather thanleave because they can find better career progression elsewhere. “Our MD used to be an area manager and I used to be a pub manager. It’sabout offering career progression through the group,” said Beacham. www.jdwetherspoon.co.uk Pub group sets course to push staff retentionOn 16 Apr 2002 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.

Inland Thinning of Pine Island Glacier, West Antarctica

Inland Thinning of Pine Island Glacier, West Antarctica

first_imgThe Pine Island Glacier (PIG) transports 69 cubic kilometers of ice each year from ∼10% of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS). It is possible that a retreat of the PIG may accelerate ice discharge from the WAIS interior. Satellite altimetry and interferometry show that the grounded PIG thinned by up to 1.6 meters per year between 1992 and 1999, affecting 150 kilometers of the inland glacier. The thinning cannot be explained by short-term variability in accumulation and must result from glacier dynamics.last_img
