MILAN, ITALY – With fewer than nine weeks to go to the opening of the 2017 CIBJO Congress in Bangkok, Thailand, on November 5, 2017, the first of the CIBJO commissions’ Special Reports has been released. Prepared by the CIBJO Marketing & Education Commission, headed by Jonathan Kendall, the report focuses on human resource management in the jewellery business, and more specifically discusses recruitment and the methods necessary to maintain and fortify a winning team of employees.

“The honest truth is we don’t spend enough time on our greatest asset, our people,” writes Mr. Kendall. “But it is almost certainly where we should be expending a major portion of our attention. Good decisions will spell success, but bad decisions about people can have far-reaching and negative consequences.”

At the 2017 CIBJO Congress in Bangkok, the Marketing & Education Commission will be releasing a guide, authored by Mr. Kendall, called People, Our Greatest Asset. Providing valuable HR management information, as well as set of tools, forms and templates, the publication answers a number of questions that any jewellery and gemstone business has to ask itself on a regular basis, such as what creates motivated and contributing employees, how do reward and recognition programmes raise employee motivation, and how can you retain top quality staff?

Following the launch of “People, Our Greatest Asset” guide at the CIBJO Congress, it will be made available for general downloading via the CIBJO website.

The 2017 CIBJO Congress will take place in Bangkok, Thailand, November 5-7, with pre-congress meetings on November 2 and 3, and the World Ruby Forum taking place on November 4.

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
