When you decide to sue someone it can do one of two things. You could end up in a world of financial pain, or you will end up with a nice chunk of change in your pocket. You don’t know which of those situations you’re going to end up in, so before you think about suing anyone we’re going to look at a few questions you should ask yourself. Continue reading

There are many things that make a company what it is, but few factors play as instrumental a role as the staff that that organisation is made up of. Your employees will not only be responsible for your organisation’s output, but they will also give your team its personality and affect the way it gels. They will alter the way that clients and others see your business by acting as ambassadors for your company, and they will contribute ideas and more. Continue reading

Being an entrepreneur or launching your own business is a highly exciting and rewarding experience that only a select few of us will ever get to experience. Unfortunately, there is a prevailing belief it seems that in order to run a business you need to wait for an amazing idea to strike. The belief is that you’ll be going about your normal routine, quite like any other day, when suddenly a light bulb will flash and you will suddenly know how to make your millions and change the world.

If you run a business that operates ‘on site’ such as a construction business or a mining company, then you might not spend much time worrying about computers or technology. Generally the assumption is that computers are more of a concern for offices and that they require desks, power sockets and the like to be of much use.
This is an outdated view however, and these days it’s important to realise that all that is changing. Thanks to the process of convergence, our devices are getting constantly smaller and more portable, while also getting more powerful, flexible and productive. These days you can do on a handheld tablet what would once have required a full-blown desktop PC. Continue reading

One of the biggest problems facing businesses is keeping the right balance between keeping their staff happy, and being seen as a soft touch. While as a manager or business owner it is vital that your staff respect you and are productive every day, it is also important that they enjoy working for you and aren’t as likely to be lured away by your competitors. Whether you employ minimum wage workers or top level sales executives, it is still better to keep the staff you have invested in hiring and training than replace them, and attrition is a problem in just about every industry there is.

Security comes down to much more than the installation of a few alarms and a few CCTV cameras. Just as important is your policy and the attitudes of your staff, and if you can educate your employees on how to deal with trespassers and have a clear policy for how they should act subsequently, then you’ll find that a lot of security issues are dealt with almost automatically and that there are far fewer ways for trespassers and trouble makers to ‘slip through the net’.

Creating a product that you hope to sell is a highly exciting process and one that many of us will be highly enthusiastic about in the lead-up to the launch. This enthusiasm is good of course, as it helps us to go through the difficult processes of designing packaging, of going through the process of getting intellectual property perfection and of finding a manufacturer who will be happy to produce our product for us.

ID cards can seem like a bother at times. After all, you need to have them displayed at all times and there’s the agonizing wait to get a new photo taken. Nobody wants to be the guy who blinks during the picture. Customized ID cards can work wonders for employee management, though. Continue reading

Interior design is an incredibly important consideration when it comes to planning a commercial space, and particularly with regards to permanent structures. If you are commissioning a new store, a new restaurant, or a public building, then it’s incredibly important that you think logically and sensibly about the way you are going to plan the design, but also the way that you decorate it and lay it out once the construction is finished.
