Building the Best Team Possible: Relationships Between Family and Non-Family Employees

In our experience working with family business we often hear of key non-family employees who become anxious or frustrated when working with, or overseeing family employees-especially in the next generation. We commonly hear reports of family members underperforming or being under qualified for the positions they are given, displaying attitudes and behaviors that would get non-family employees fired. Fortunately, there are successful strategies for avoiding these situations that can lead to discouragement and deteriorating motivation for your non-family managers, as well as unsatisfying results for the business itself.

The first step is to develop a clear and transparent process for integrating relatives into the business. Often, families handle family employment in a very informal manner, and history has shown an informal method is much more likely to produce negative employment complications. A clear process might include the establishment of a summer jobs program for high school students who will work in basic jobs for the company, an internship program for college-aged students where they are exposed to higher-level information about the firm and its products and services (excellent for future owners who are not likely to actually work in the business fulltime), and a formal process for orienting relatives who intend to enter the business fulltime as their chosen career. Most important is to get this process outlined on paper and to then communicate the ground rules to all in a forum. This helps set expectations and allows junior generation family members to understand the opportunities and responsibilities involved in working with the family enterprise. It also adds to family credibility in the eyes of non-family employees.

In addition to a process for integrating family into the business, a second critical element is a family employment policy guiding the requirements for relatives seeking employment. It is the ownership group’s responsibility to seek alignment on expectations for employment, as unity around these expectations will protect the family from unnecessary conflict in the future, and allows the ownership group to speak with one voice. A typical employment policy clearly defines the path to employment for the next generation, answering questions such as:

• Does the policy apply to lineal descendants only? What about spouses?
• Who do we go to when we wish to apply for a position?
• What education is needed before we can work full time in the company?
• How many years of outside work experience are needed before we can come in fulltime?
• Can we work directly for another relative?
• How will our pay be determined?
• How will promotions be determined?
• What is the process for receiving performance feedback in the new position?
• Can a relative be terminated? If so, by what process?

The employment policy is necessary, but not sufficient to guide family employment in a positive direction.

The third component needed to navigate family employment issues is a Code of Conduct to guide behavior on the job. The ownership group has tremendous power in guiding productive family behavior by working together to forge a set of expectations to which relatives can aspire. The Code of Conduct drives behavior by articulating the family’s expectations about the following:

• How are we expected to perform on the job?
• What attitudes or behaviors are expected towards our supervisors, peers and direct reports?
• What communication expectations exist between fellow family employees? What information do we share and what do we not share?
• Will we operate in conjunction with the employee handbook on all matters, or what exceptions will exist?
• What are our expectations for vacation, time off and work hours?
• What will we do when we have a conflict with other family employees?
• How will we speak about each other to spouses, relatives and others?

Having worked together to establish the three components of integration, the family must then communicate with non-family management about its hopes regarding family employment. This is best done at a forum between the family shareholders and relevant key non-family managers. In this meeting, the family articulates its vision for the enterprise, its commitment to the enterprise and the values it intends to support in the business. In particular, the family takes time to articulate its deepest hopes around family continuity, and asks the key non-family employee group for help in achieving the above.

As the forum is a two-way dialogue, non-family employees should be given plenty of time to articulate their needs from the family in meeting the vision, gain clarity on whether they will really be supported in helping the family group reach its goals, and express any concerns they have about family employment. This process can be used to help key employees see what is in it for them, such as ownership continuity, a stronger organization (assuming family policies support a stronger organization), and the freedom to supervise family employees without backlash.

The weakened economy has lead to two emerging complications around non family motivation and family employment: specifically, bringing on new family employees while the firm is downsizing due to economic pressures; and the family’s taking of perks while non-family employees are being asked to go without (e.g. pay freezes, reductions in 401K benefits, etc.).

The first issue, bringing on relatives, can be addressed through the forum concept described above. The family can express how important it is that they prepare the next generation of family owners/managers, and their taking a long-term view in these matters. At the same time, sometimes the family needs to think creatively to limit the disruption this particular hire might cause for non-family managers. One suggestion could be to put the new family hire’s compensation above the line on key managers’ budgets (for example, putting their compensation in overhead rather than in a key manager’s operating budget). In this case, the manager will be minimally impacted by having a junior generation family member in “learning mode” on their watch. In fact, it may be viewed positively, as they get performance from a family member without it impacting their budget (and therefore, their own compensation or bonus calculations). This is often done for a year or two, until the relative graduates from training mode and begins to directly contribute to firm performance.

The second issue, family perks in a time of scarcity, deserves the family’s attention. Assuring that family perks are not impacting employee compensation structures negatively is a start. While non-family employees may be tolerant of family perks (those perks not afforded to all employees of the same authority level) in good times, they may become very resentful if they see the family taking benefits when everyone else is being asked to cut back. These feelings will be especially strong if they believe their compensation and benefits packages are being influenced by events beyond their own control, as occurs when family employee perks are charged to non-family managers’ budgets. Families do well to explore whether family employee perks are hindering employee motivation and taking corrective action if this is the case.

As with so much else in family business, the strength of these companies comes from the successful blending of differing priorities or agendas: family and business, or in this case, family and non-family employees. While the above details the effort required, it is a great investment to think through the challenges and opportunities that come from the overlap of family and non-family employees at your company, and to do what it takes to make this a strong union. In our experience, successful businesses need the commitment and enthusiasm of the family as well as that of a broad range of key non-family employees and executives.

Are You Looking For The Best Place To Purchase A Two-Sided Vinyl Banner? Read On!

I am sometimes asked,”Where is the best place to purchase a two-sided vinyl banner?” Of course,I am biased on the answer to this question,but I will attempt to put that aside to answer this question fairly and equitably.

First,any company can claim to sell “wholesale” banners or signs or decals or displays,but where the rubber hits the road,if you’re purchasing a product to re-sell to your client,is pricing,timing,and quality of the finished product.

Cost is a major factor in wholesale pricing. If you can’t compete with other companies,either by producing your own banners in-house or purchasing them at a competitive price,you’re not going to stay in business for long. For re-sellers,cost is almost everything,but not quite,because if the quality sucks,you’ll never see the client again,and no one likes it when that happens.

More information on custom business signs here

So,how do you know if you’re getting wholesale pricing? Well,as the previous paragraph states,price is going to be the number one indicator. Many companies sell to brokers at a lower rate than end consumers,and true wholesalers only sell to brokers or sign shops or the like. There are some companies that sell wholesale to anyone who walks through the door or calls on the phone,but these companies quickly become unpopular with re-sellers because of the potential of selling against them.

No one in any re-selling business is friendly with companies that they buy from then find that they just lost a large bid to that company. So,if you’re a re-seller,you want to make sure that your vendor is giving you special pricing,and that you won’t see their name on the same bid list you’re on for the product they sell to you.

Wholesalers,though,are not always the manufacturer. This is an important distinction in some industries,although in the banner printing industry,there are so many small shops that can print banners that most “Mom and Pop” businesses (small companies) will usually shop at these types of print shops because they can go in and talk to someone.

With larger companies that want to purchase wholesale,they will often drill down on pricing until they believe they’ve found the lowest possible pricing,then they’ll ask for samples or pay for prototypes enroute to purchasing a large quantity of double-faced PVC banners or the like. An experienced re-seller will often know by reviewing pricing (like I do),whether the banner is produced in-house or he is 2nd or 3rd in the food chain.

With our company,we sell wholesale two-sided vinyl banners,but we don’t print in house,having developed relations with offshore printers. We can often compete toe-to-toe with large printers in the US because our costs are low,especially on very large (as in container shipments) product orders.

So,why not just go offshore yourself? You could. However,I would caution you that it is not as easy as it sounds. Dealing with cultural norms from the Far East are not the same as Western cultural norms. Countries that read books from back to front think of things about opposite of how you think of them. It has taken many years and headaches to be able to work offshore.

Most of the brokers we deal with know we’re not the printer,but because of pricing and quality will work with us. Many have even tried the offshore route,but most have given up as it is difficult. I will admit it IS difficult. Even for an experienced offshore wholesaler it is very challenging,and even when you think you’ve learned a lot,you’ll run into a new cultural wrinkle that can sometimes throw you for a loop purchasing wholesale double-sided vinyl PVC banners or other printed materials.Read more on custom signs and banners

Touring Holidays to the WW2 Battlefields in 2019

It was on the 20th of August 1940 Winston Churchill gave a memorable speech,one that went down in history. In that speech he explained ‘never was so much owed by so many to so few.’ He was speaking about the Battle of Britain which raged in the skies over the battered island of Britain.

However,it would be the mainland of Europe that was to see the worst fighting.

It was actually here that a lot of the fiercest fighting of that war was to occur.Today most of the battlefields in Europe still bear the scars from the massive bombardments they received.

However it is the human stories from the men and woman who faced the German army in Europe (and those of the German soldiers too) that continues to fascinate lots of people.

This is probably the reasons why touring European WW2 battlefields remains tremendously popular these days.

2019 will mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings which has generated enormous interest from people who are enthusiastic about military history. There are a number of tour operators who definitely are offering packages that come with accommodation and guided tours on this historic destination.

It is not necessarily merely the battlefields themselves that happen to be attracting interest. There are many museums and historical sites that provide an insight in to the invasion which would be the signal to all that the turning point of the war had been reached.

Many of these packages include not simply guided tours of the beach itself – but additionally professionals who offer detailed understanding of the pivotal moments that followed the invasion on D-Day. such as historic events like the Battle of the Bulge and the Falaise Gap.

For many who would like to follow the progress of the Allied forces as they approached the ultimate push for Berlin additionally,there are tour firms that host extended tours that may last above 14 days. For your real military history these sorts of tours (again with various options including budget and luxury accommodation) present an original possibility to examine in great detail the difficulties that must be overcome by the Allies inside the face of determined opposition.

However,it is not only D-Day as well as the push for Berlin that will end up being of interest to tour groups in 2019.

There are more European theaters that will also boast prominently inside the Allies battle to make Germany’s surrender.

Some of the most popular of these will undoubtedly be a tour of your battlefields and cities in Italy where some of the fiercest fighting of WW2 occurred. Battles in cities and locations such as Monte Cassino and Anzio have gone down in history as having shaped the strategy and final outcome of the war.

Tour groups can also be guided to beach landings that had been pivotal inside the Allied struggle for domination in the area. such as ‘Operation Husky’ covering the landings in Sicily and ‘Operation Avalanche’ in Salerno.

Touring European WW2 battlefields supplies a unique possibility to explore one of the most pivotal events that shaped the planet as we know it today.

Those who would like to book their put on one of these brilliant tours need to do so early – they are proving increasingly popular and are bound to sell out quickly.

In some instances however,you may want to book a trip for a group of people in your office and here,instead of using a normal tour company,and if this is the case please see https://cgtbattlefields.co.uk/

Workman’s Comp and Why It’s So Important

Most employers in all the 50 states are required to have workers compensation insurance for all their employees. Failure to enroll workers to the work comp insurance scheme can attract both civil and criminal penalties,so most employers are compliant. Workers Comp is a type of insurance that helps to ensure that injured workers get proper medical treatment when injured at the workplace. The insurance cover also ensures that employees continue to receive partial wage payments even when they spend weeks,months or years out of work. The following are reasons why workers compensation is important.

1. Ensures Injured Workers Get Proper Medical Treatment

When workers are injured while working for their employer,work comp will ensure that they will get proper medical treatment. If it doesn’t,aworkers compensation attorney can prove invaluable.Once the injury has been reported to the employer and a claim has been submitted to the work comp board in the state as well as the insurer,the injured worker will get medical benefits to ensure they get essential medical treatment for their injuries.

2. Protects Employers from Lawsuits

In a high-risk work environment,accidents and injuries are bound to occur,which is why workman's comp are so important. By signing up every worker to work comp insurance,employers can be minimize their exposure to liabilities arising from injury lawsuits. After all,employees usually give up their right to sue the employer when they are covered under workers comp insurance.

3. Protects the Workers’ Job

When the injured worker has to spend weeks or months out of work,employers may be tempted to fire them and hire a replacement. Under work comp laws,however,this is illegal. The injured worker will continue getting medical benefits and disability benefits at the rate of two-thirds of their weekly benefits until they have recovered enough to resume their duties. Under work comp laws,therefore,workers can be assured of retaining their jobs when injured.

You have to be sure that the type of trade you are putting yourself and money into is worth the investment. You ought not to take impulsive decisions especially ones that involved finances for this is likely to lead in undesirable results.

Below is a list of things which will convince you otherwise why investing in self-storage real estate might just be better and practically wise than investing in office or commercial units.

High demands

With more and more people choosing to rely on storage units rather than lease out a bigger flat,investing in self storage is odds-on. The increase on the demand is a great factor that helps determine your success in the market. Given the amazing progress in the self-storage industry in the past years,it is safe to assume that chances of fortune are higher on this type of investment than compared with other real estates.

Diversification

If you are an entrepreneur and you wanted to expand your market,then investing in a self-storage trade is a good choice to diversify. It helps investors to have a variety of business ventures not only to gain larger revenues but as well as to enrich their assets.

Stability

Investment on self-storage business can prove stability with its strong resistance against economic downturns. Good thing is that regardless of whether the economy is doing well or not,your storage business still does well. You have a consistent cash flow no matter what the circumstance.

High-Profit Potentials

Just as any other commercial or industrial units,investors tend to earn high profit through self-storage investments. As more people opt to lease out storage units,the cost considerably goes up benefitting the investors. With the potentially powerful market,high profit can be expected. And another thing is that Self-Storage owners won’t have to deal with regular maintenance that are usually provided to commercial units.

We recommend you start investing the soonest possible. The earlier you start in the industry,the higher the chance of growth of your company. Make sure you’ve got not only resources but as well as a handful of research on where it is best to put up your first storage site.

Leveraging Third Party Intent

One of the more challenging aspect of any digital marketing plan is how to leverage third party intent. It is important because as a business owner,you need to be able to find the customers that are most likely to buy from you,and then find a way to market to them effectively. If you are able to leverage third party intent in an effective way,it will save your company a ton in revenue,because you won’t have to attract as many people. They will already be the audience you are looking for. This practice is especially true for any business that is done online.

Finding Something to Measure

The first thing you need to worry about when leveraging third party intent is how to measure it. Essentially,you are measuring need,or at least the customers wants. Basically,when it comes to online shoppers you have two groups,those that want to buy right now,and those that are just doing research. While you don’t want to alienate the ones doing research,they shouldn’t be your main focus. There are techniques you can use to separate the needs from the researchers. In the past,it was a simple process. Now,it is much more difficult to do.

Keep it Simple

Once you have identified the audience you want to cater to,the next step is making it easy for them to buy from you. Make sure you are on the form of social media that your audience chooses to engage in,and also make sure that you are making the experience as easy as you can. No one wants to jump through hoops to buy a product,so a difficult process will turn people away quickly. Also,you need to create moments where your audience will be most likely to buy. These are called micro-moments and they are essential to marketing. Learn more aboutFive Channels.

6 Factors That Affect Self-Storage Prices

Residents in UK have been renting out self-storage facilities to save a couple of pounds. Typically,it’s because it’s cheaper to rent out a storage facility than to get a house big enough to fit all your things. Theself storage prices are influenced with lots of factors. Just like real estate,the size,location,and amenities are few things that can determine its price.

The location and demand are one factor that drives up the cost of a storage facility. As the law of economics suggests,when the demand for an item is high and the supply is limited,it can’t be helped that the price also gets to increase. For example,because space is limited in the overpopulated city of London,it is impossible for the rent for both real estate and storage units not to become more expensive.

It is also more recommended to rent a storage facility in cities like Manchester,Birmingham,Glasgow and obviously London where the storage unit is far cheaper than renting a big flat that can fit you and all your items without making you look like a hoarder.

Saving money is the main reason why you are renting a self-storage which is why you should get one that is cost-effective. Getting a unit that is too big or filled with unnecessary amenities will only burn your pocket.

Here are the factors that affect Self-storage prices which will guide you in getting the best unit without losing a great deal of money:

Size

It is important that you get the right size of storage unit that fits your need. Often,tenants fail to get the most suitable storage unit that applies to them. A unit that is too big just means filling it with air and getting burns through their wallet. On the other hand,some get units which are too smaller in size and cannot fit all their items.

Don’t get a unit just because it is cheap. You ought to find the one that best suits you and the things you will store. And of course,keep in mind to have your items organised first so you will be able to save space.

We also recommend you to have the furniture disassembled before you put it inside a storage facility. Inspect the unit that you want so you get to have a look at its actual size.

Self-storage facilities offer different sizes. There are those types that can only fit the contents of your home closet but also there are units that can get to contain all the items of a six-bedroom house including furniture.

Location

If you have experienced looking for real estate,you would know the location is a big factor. The closer the place to the city is the higher the price of Self Storage units. The same logic applies to storage units. Units in big cities like London,Manchester and Birmingham have higher price than those located in towns. The cost of a small storage unit in London can amount to the cost of a large unit in a different county.

It is best to get a storage unit that is far from the city so you can save money. However,if you will be storing items that you will need to use over the week,then get a unit nearer to save you time and gas money.

Population

Population determines the price of a real state. When the demand is high,then the cost also increases. Pricing of storage facilities are also influenced by students population. Towns like Sheffield which is dominated with students have higher prices compared to non-student towns like Arbroath.

Type of Unit (Indoor or Outdoor)

There are both indoor and outdoor types of storage unit. The type you choose will determine its cost. Outdoor facilities allow tenants to drive up and access their items from the outside thus making it more convenient and easier to go in and out. On the other hand,indoor facilities can only be accessed from the inside of building premises. Outdoor access units are more convenient and affordable. However,certain amenities are not available with Outdoor facilities like Climate Control. And while indoor storages may be more expensive,they tend to be more secure and offer more perks. Yet transferring into indoor facilities can also be a daunting task as you need to haul them yourself to the unit.

Amenities

Storage units offer a variety of amenities including climate control,24/7 access and CCTV cameras. Each of these amenities has a purpose of its own – for example,climate control shields off wooden furniture and old books from humidity damage and mould. 24/7 access grants you access to your items in whatever time you prefer. A CCTV camera on your unit will relieve you from fear of leaving your things in there. Each additional amenity will trigger aself storage pricing increase so make sure that you get only the amenities that cater to your need.

Duration of Stay

The duration of your stay is a factor which will help you determine the amount you will pay. Self-storage facilities would be more than happy to give you a discount if you plan to stay for longer days.

Benefits of Active Hexose Correlated Compound

Benefits of Active Hexose Correlated Compound

 

Active hexose correlated compound, otherwise known as AHCC, is a substance that occurs naturally in a certain species of mushroom. These mushrooms, which include shiitake, are known as basidiomycetes.

 

AHCC has been used as an antioxidant and is available in a supplement form, such as Healthy Drops Liposomal AHCC. The research on the health benefits of active hexose correlated compound has been limited, but there are many claims that it has a range of health benefits. 

 

 

 

Uses for AHCC

 

AHCC is big in the world of alternative medicine. It’s said to strengthen your immune system and help your body’s defenses fight off viral infections, such as the common cold and the flu.

 

It’s also been suggested that it can possibly protect people from cancer and can assist in reducing side effects cancer patients experience when going through chemotherapy. Lastly, it may also have the potential to help treat those suffering from hepatitis and help prevent heart disease.

 

Health Benefits

 

There have been very few clinical trials to test the potential AHCC has. The early preliminary research has offered the same findings as alternative medicine has. It has certain health benefits that can be very helpful.

 

?       Supports The Immune System

 

A small clinical trial conducted in 2008 shows AHCC may help boost immunity, according to a small study in Nutrition and Cancer. The study had 21 volunteers that were all healthy take either a placebo or an active hexose correlated compound supplement for four weeks. By the end of the study, those who took the supplement had a significant increase in the number of dendritic cells, which provide additional immune support.

 

?       Suppressing Cancer and Chemotherapy Side Effects

 

A report published in the Journal of Experimental Therapeutics and Oncology from a 2009 study with animals, shows that it may be able to reduce specific side effects of chemotherapy. During this, research mice who took AHCC experienced little to no signs of bone marrow suppression or chemo-induced liver damage. While promising, it hasn’t been verified to help alleviate these side effects in humans. 

 

Another animal study conducted early in 2006 in Cancer Immunology and Immunotherapy showed promising effects. The mice in these trials had cancer cells. They were given an active hexose correlated compound supplement.  Shop Now
