ARB opens 2019 Code Review process
The ARB is calling for submissions on the review of the Code of Advertising Practice.
The Advertising Regulatory Board (ARB) opened in November 2018, to administer the Code of Advertising Practice and fill the lacuna left by the placement of the Advertising Standards Authority into liquidation.
The ARB administers the Code of Advertising Practice under mandate from the advertising and marketing industry. The Code is a live and dynamic document that is constantly open to amendment and review to keep it in line with the needs and norms of the industry.
The ARB calls for any submissions in the current Code Review cycle to be made by close of business on 30 September 2019, where after all submissions will be reviewed and considered for inclusion in the Code.
Please submit your suggestions, with a motivation, to firstname.lastname@example.org
The current Code can be viewed at http://www.arb.org.za/codes.html

SAQA defines Career Growth as important for both the Corporate/Brand and the Individual http://www.saqa.org.za/docs/genpubs/2009/career_guidance.pdf:
Why career development matters to organisations:
• Careers are how higher-level and business-specific skills and knowledge are acquired.
• Careers are how skills and knowledge are deployed and spread in organisations, as employees move from one job to another in response to where they are needed – which is critical to organisational flexibility.
• Career movement is also how culture and values – the “glue” of the organisation – are transmitted, and how personal networks are extended and strengthened: these networks are often key to rapid and effective action.
• Career development is a major tool for attracting, motivating and retaining good-quality employees. Research in the UK has demonstrated that providing career opportunities is one of 11 key practices that influence organisational performance (Purcell et al., 2003); and that there is a link between the extent to which high flyers experience career support and their intention to stay with their employer (Winter & Jackson, 1999).
It also matters to individuals:
• Your career is your own life story; how you make sense of your working life and how you achieve some sense of direction and progression in work and inside yourself.
• Your career is how you manage your working life to earn income, and also how you balance your work with your other interests and responsibilities.
• Career development is about being fully aware of your work opportunities, and making conscious and proactive choices about the kind of work you do.
• Career development is how you develop your skills and CV, and so improve your chances of future employability.
