The 2018 CARILEC Human Resource, Corporate Communications and Customer Service Conference which is being held under the theme: Redesigning Human Resource, Corporate Communications, and Customer Service Processes is a multi-disciplinary experience for HR, PR and CS professionals in the industry who seek a comprehensive education accompanied by innovative learning sessions, peer-to-peer learning  and exceptional networking and social opportunities.

Created by professionals who specialise in the electricity and energy industry, the CARILEC Human Resource, Corporate Communications and Customer Service Conference is a hub of rich content. It offers delegates a unique experience committed to their understanding of the trends, innovations and laws affecting the industry; furthering their professional development and enabling them to bring new ideas and approaches to their respective organisations.

This year’s Conference will place a special focus on Disaster Management, Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery. The 2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season was one of the most active seasons within recent history, and many affected utilities and citizens are still recovering. Disaster management is vital to ensuring safety and sustainability during disasters and cannot be separated from human resource management as it plays an integral role in planning for and responding to disasters.

Additionally, some of the biggest operational challenges faced by a utility can occur after a disaster. When this happens, public relations and customer service teams assist with minimising the impact of disruptions to customers and employees and therefore play a key role in ensuring business continuity and disaster recovery.

After this Conference, human resource, public relations and customer service managers who are tasked with assisting in disaster management and recovery will be better prepared to execute these responsibilities.

    About Jamaica

    Jamaica, a Caribbean island nation, has a lush topography of mountains, rainforests and reef-lined beaches. Many of its all-inclusive resorts are clustered in Montego Bay, with its British-colonial architecture, and Negril, known for its diving and snorkeling sites. Jamaica is famed as the birthplace of reggae music, and its capital Kingston is home to the Bob Marley Museum, dedicated to the famous singer. The greater part of Jamaica is a limestone plateau, with an average elevation of about 460 m (1,500 ft). The interior of the island is largely mountainous, and peaks of over 2,100 m (7,000 ft) are found in the Blue Mountains, which dominate the eastern part of the island; the highest point on the island is Blue Mountain Peak, at 2,256 m (7,402 ft) above sea level.

    The coastal plains are largely alluvial, and the largest plains areas lie along the south coast. The island has numerous interior valleys. There are many rivers, but most are small, with rapids and falls that make navigation virtually impossible for any distance.

     

    LANGUAGE

    The official Language is English but Patios, a dialect, is widely spoken across the island.

     

    CURRENCY

    The money in Jamaica is called Jamaican Dollars (JMD).  Bank notes are issued for the following amounts $50, $100, $500 and $1000.  One Jamaican dollar is equal to about $0.01 USD US dollars.  The exchange rates change everyday.

    CLIMATE

    The climate ranges from tropical at sea level to temperate in the uplands; there is relatively little seasonal variation in temperature. The average annual temperature in the coastal lowlands is 27°c (81°f); for the Blue Mountains, 13°c (55°f). The rainy seasons are May to June and September to November. The period from late August to November has occasionally been marked by destructive hurricanes.

    ELECTRICITY

    Electric power in Jamaica is almost the same as in the United States and Canada.  In Jamaica the power sockets are of type A and B. The standard voltage is 110 V and the standard frequency is 50 Hz.
