The number of Scouting units chartered to Episcopal churches has grown despite a two percent loss in membership for the Boy Scouts of America overall.The signing took place after a meeting of the Boy Scouts of America Religious Relations Support Committee, when faith groups from Protestant, Catholic and Jewish churches and synagogues described their action plans to support Scouting in 2017. The event was held at the North DFW Airport Marriott near the Irving, Texas headquarters of the Boy Scouts of America.“This document pledges the Brotherhood to take several steps to strengthen our support of Scouting,” Butcher said. “We now have a formal seat at the table, along with other denominations.” Other major faith groups that support Scouting include Baptist, Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Presbyterian, Latter Day Saints and Methodist churches.Boy Scouts of America Chief Scout Executive Michael Surbaugh, left, and Brotherhood of St. Andrew President Jeff Butcher shake hands after signing a Memorandum of Understanding between the two organizations.The Memorandum of Understanding was crafted by Brotherhood Vice President for Mentoring Ed Milbrada and BSA executive Gene Butler. Milbrada is a longtime Scout leader and advocate for the 106 year-old organization that serves 2,004,713 young men and women in five different Scouting programs in the U.S. (about 41 million worldwide).The first new action item has been created – a edition of the New Testament With Psalms to be used at future Scouting jamborees and conclaves. The Brotherhood joined Baptist, Roman Catholic, Lutheran and Churches of Christ denominations to sponsor the publication.Both organizations were incorporated by U.S. President Teddy Roosevelt – the Brotherhood of St. Andrew in 1908 and the Boy Scouts of America in 1910.— Jim Goodson is editor of the St. Andrew’s Cross, the publication of the Brotherhood of St. Andrew.

Speak up over poverty pay

first_imgMany are struggling to survive on the minimum wage, yet HR is silent on thelevel at which it should be set”The level of exploitation was really very concerning. When we saw whatthey were paid and what they actually did, it was heartbreaking. We saw workingpractices that we thought we had lost in the last century.” So said Stephanie Monk, HR director of Granada Group, who sat on the Low PayCommission (LPC) until last year (after picking up a CBE). She probably doesn’tmove in sweatshop circles. This is the only public acknowledgement I can find from anyone connectedwith the HR world during the last seven years on the social and moral aspect ofpoverty pay in Britain. There are of course great forests of the obvious stuff employers have beencoming out with for two centuries on the subject of wage protection. “It [the National Minimum Wage] could be the last straw for employerswho are already struggling to survive on low margins,” fretted JohnStevens, director of professional policy at the then IPD in August 1996,calling for “further consideration” of a rate between £3.00 and £3.50an hour (it was introduced at £3.60 in April 1999). The HR divide This is surprising. I know HR is supposed to have strategically aligned itsconscience out of existence, but nevertheless, I suspect many in the professionfeel more divided about low pay than their stereotype allows. Like the two halves of a John Gray book, a bit of them will be Venus, ableto see the world from someone else’s perspective; the other is martial Mars,who knows it’s a jungle out there. But I shall just have to go on suspecting,because only Mars is allowed a voice. Except that is not quite true. The CIPD has decided to hold itself alooffrom what it regards as the seedy, self-interested scraps between unions andbusiness organisations on what the minimum wage rate should be. Its view is that the LPC is doing a good job and should be left to get onwith it. That is why the CIPD has said nothing since that far-sighted statementof 1996. No voice, then. Here is a curious intellectual position: the presence of a state-backedarbiter makes opinion redundant – as if viewpoints function only where thestate doesn’t. Thankfully, the institute is not consistent; it hasn’t abandonedopinions on diversity because of the Equal Opportunities Commission, nor onskills because of the Learning and Skills Council. Which makes its stance onlow pay all the more peculiar. Righteous passivity In a debate characterised by business indifference to injustice and unionindifference to the economic environment, the profession charged with theman-agement of people has chosen the path of righteous passivity. It’s a good job the Government has not lost hope. Monk has been replaced onthe LPC by Angie Risley, HR director of the Whitbread Group – a company thatprior to 1997 was militantly hostile to the minimum wage, but, like others, hassince mellowed. What should be the nature of a distinctive HR contribution on the minimumwage? It’s not easy. Few would want to identify with traditional businessparsimony when the doom-laden predictions were so wrong. The success of theNational Minimum Wage is a strong argument for increasing it gradually. The new rate from this October of £4.50 is still sub-survivable in the SouthEast, unless you do two or three jobs. Moreover, many must sense there-distributionist tilt the LPC is taking. “All the signs are… that the minimum wage can now be increased as apercentage of average earnings – benefiting more workers – without producingdamaging economic effects,” writes chairman Adair Turner, in the LPC’sfourth report. It would be tempting to merely make technical points: the case for regionalminimum wages, for instance, the lack of enforcement (just 96 people do thistask) or the importance of accurate data (the Office for National Statisticsfluffed estimates of the low paid, effectively short-changing millions). Yetthat will not do: the relative position of the low paid is a primary employmentrelations issue. What’s the solution? There will always be a tension between affordability and justice, yet oneclue to a possible stance might be to ask a new question: what settlement onlow pay is most desirable for good people management? The question surely implies support for a relevant, rising pay floor and arepudiation of race-to-the-bottom labour economics. In fact, if the Venus in them was un-gagged for a minute, most HRprofessionals would acknowledge that social justice issues at work are thegreatest de-motivators, the greatest dis-incentivisers, the greatest bars ondiscretionary effort, and one of the greatest thwarters of their endeavours(after CEOs). Paying as many as a third of the British workforce less than the EU decencythreshold of £7.32 risks rendering discussion of high-performance workpractices pie-in-the-sky. One or two old-fashioned souls may even wistfully reflectthat the Labour Party’s original plan for a rate set at half male medianearnings – £5.38 – is not so far from the demands of social responsibility,fairness, and high quality HRM. HR professionals have an admirable desire to be practical. ‘People are ourgreatest asset’, is not practical. Debate about the minimum those ‘assets’ should expect, would be verypractical indeed.

Pioneer Natural Resources agrees purchase of Parsley Energy in $7.6bn deal

first_img The combined firm will have a production capacity of 558,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (Credit: Pixabay/skeeze) Pioneer Natural Resources has agreed to acquire rival US shale producer Parsley Energy in an all-stock deal valued at around $7.6bn, including debt.It is the second major consolidation in the US shale patch this week, following ConocoPhillips’ acquisition of Concho Resources in a deal worth $9.8bn.Established in 2008, Parsley Energy is and exploration and production company focused on unconventional oil and gas reserves in the Permian Basin, which spans Texas and New Mexico. The acquisition is the latest in a wave of consolidations sweeping across the US shale industry Why Pioneer Natural Resources is acquiring Parsley EnergyParsley Energy’s combination with Pioneer Natural Resources will create a major independent producer in the Permian Basin.The combined firm will have an asset base of nearly 930,000 net acres with no federal acreage. As of the second quarter of this year, the enlarged company will have a production base of 328,000 barrels of oil per day and 558,000 barrels oil equivalent per day (boepd).According to Pioneer Natural Resources, the acquisition will boost its proved reserves by nearly 65%.The merger of the two Texas-based oil and gas firms is also expected to generate about $325m in annual cost savings via operational efficiencies and reductions in general, administrative and interest expenses.Pioneer Natural Resources president and CEO Scott Sheffield said: “This transaction creates an unmatched independent energy company by combining two complementary and premier Permian assets, further strengthening Pioneer’s leadership position within the upstream energy sector.“Parsley’s high-quality portfolio in both the Midland and Delaware Basins, when added to Pioneer’s peer-leading asset base, will transform the investing landscape by creating a company of unique scale and quality that results in tangible and durable value for investors.”Under the agreement, Parsley Energy’s shares will be exchanged for 0.1252 shares of Pioneer Natural Resources, in a deal that values the former at around $4.5bn excluding its debt, which Pioneer will assume.Parsley Energy president and CEO Matt Gallagher added: “With neighbouring acreage positions located entirely in the low-cost, high-margin Permian Basin, the industrial logic of this transaction is sound.“Furthermore, the Pioneer team shares our belief that a clear returns-focused mindset is the best tool to compete for capital within the broader market.“Sustainable free cash flow and growing return of capital are now investment prerequisites for the energy sector, and this combination strengthens those paths for our shareholders.”The deal, which is subject to meeting of customary closing conditions, regulatory approvals, and shareholder approvals, is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2021.Earlier this year, Pioneer Natural Resources said it will slash its 2020 capital budget of $3bn-$3.3bn by nearly 45% due to lower oil prices and global financial uncertainty amid the coronavirus pandemic.last_img read more
