Quiere la boca exhausta vid, kiwi, piña y fugaz jamón. Fabio me exige, sin tapujos, que añada cerveza al whisky. Jovencillo emponzoñado de whisky, ¡qué figurota exhibes! La cigüeña tocaba cada vez mejor el saxofón y el búho pedía kiwi y queso. El jefe buscó el éxtasis en un imprevisto baño de whisky y gozó como un duque. Exhíbanse politiquillos zafios, con orejas kilométricas y uñas de gavilán. El cadáver de Wamba, rey godo de España, fue exhumado y trasladado en una caja de zinc que pesó un kilo.

CHS Alliance, in partnership with Talent Development and the Humanitarian Leadership Academy (HLA), is running a free webinar session for Jordan-based human resources (HR) staff and managers on 08 August, followed by a free training day in Amman on 17 August. These events aim to promote the use of competency-based HR and the Core Humanitarian Competencies Framework (CHCF) in the NGO sector in Jordan.  

The webinar will introduce competency based HR and CHCF, participants will then be invited to attend a day training on competency-based recruitment and selection methods/tools, as well as staff development planning methods/tools. Both these events are free and open to HR staff, managers and employees based in Jordan and who would like to introduce the CHCF to their respective organisations.

Competency-based HR can help an organisation select, develop and manage staff in an efficient, fair and strategic manner. Producing competent and well-managed staff in turn leads to accountable and effective humanitarian and development work. The Core Humanitarian Competency Framework (CHCF) was developed in 2010 to provide humanitarian organisations with a common set of behaviours that have proven to be effective in responses. Since then it has been adopted by many organisations proving to add value and increase efficiency for its users. 

These training initiatves take place in the context of the promotion of the use of competency-based HR and the CHCF in humanitarian and development sectors in the NGO sector in Jordan It is made possible by Start NetworkHumanitarian Leadership Academy (HLA) and PHAP

If you are based in Jordan and you would like to join us, please get in touch with Gemma Prescott to confirm your attendance: gprescott@chsalliance.org

Muy lejos, más allá de las montañas de palabras, alejados de los países de las vocales y las consonantes, viven los textos simulados. Viven aislados en casas de letras, en la costa de la semántica, un gran océano de lenguas. Un riachuelo llamado Pons fluye por su pueblo y los abastece con las normas necesarias. Hablamos de un país paraisomático en el que a uno le caen pedazos de frases asadas en la boca.

Ni siquiera los todopoderosos signos de puntuación dominan a los textos simulados; una vida, se puede decir, poco ortográfica. Pero un buen día, una pequeña línea de texto simulado, llamada Lorem Ipsum, decidió aventurarse y salir al vasto mundo de la gramática. El gran Oxmox le desanconsejó hacerlo, ya que esas tierras estaban llenas de comas malvadas, signos de interrogación salvajes y puntos y coma traicioneros, pero el texto simulado no se dejó atemorizar. Empacó sus siete versales, enfundó su inicial en el cinturón y se puso en camino.

El jefe buscó el éxtasis en un imprevisto baño de whisky y gozó como un duque. Exhíbanse politiquillos zafios, con orejas kilométricas y uñas de gavilán. El cadáver de Wamba, rey godo de España, fue exhumado y trasladado en una caja de zinc que pesó un kilo. El pingüino Wenceslao hizo kilómetros bajo exhaustiva lluvia y frío, añoraba a su querido cachorro. El veloz murciélago hindú comía feliz cardillo y kiwi. La cigüeña tocaba el saxofón detrás del palenque de paja.
