Congress Needs To Stop Using Our Veterans As Political Bargaining Chips: Holding Up Voting On Critical Healthcare Legislation Is An Embarrassment For Our Nation

bargaining chips. This pollutes our politics and undermines the respect of our foreign allies.

In 1972, most veterans who served in Vietnam believed America had turned its back on them.

some in Congress are willing to delay their votes for a bill that would ensure access to healthcare for veterans.

The controversy in Congress about legislation to maintain healthcare coverage for veterans exposed to toxic burn pits has exposed a moral dilemma for our nation, and our commitment - or lack of - towards those who have put their lives and the well-being of their families at risk to serve our country and preserve our democracy. We haven’t learned from the mistakes we made when it came to our treatment of our veterans who served during the Vietnam war. When did it become acceptable to use our veterans as political pawns to settle partisan arguments in Congress?

Why does it take advocates like Jon Stewart, former host of The Daily Show, and Long Island’s own John Feal to go before news cameras to call out members of Congress who believe it’s acceptable to use veterans as

There were no parades, no acknowledgement about PTSD and the need for comprehensive mental health or substance abuse treatment, and no recognition that they were heroes who served our country honorably. Fifty years later we’ve come a long way - or at least I thought we had.

Over the last 50 years we’ve seen more women in the military and today our military is more diverse. We’ve elevated our understanding of the effects of PTSD on our veterans and their families. We’ve expanded educational opportunities for those who served and offer a living wage for veterans to achieve the American Dream.

Suffolk County has the second largest population of veterans in the United States, second only to San Diego, California. There are enough nonprofit organizations whose mission is to provide comprehensive services for our veterans and their families, and there are community events that raise money and awareness to respond to their needs. Yet,

Stewart and Feal’s anger is justified. Too many veterans on Long Island are struggling. Nearly 1,800 of them are known to our regional food bank. They visit Long Island Cares’ six satellite locations monthly to access food, personal care products, household supplies and pet food. More than 250 veterans have found gainful employment through our Vets Work program and many of the 88 households that receive home delivery of groceries are veteran households. Most recently, we’ve added care coordination services for our veterans to avoid having them fall between the cracks trying to navigate the myriad of services they are entitled to. Veterans have suffered enough physically, emotionally and socially. The least we can do is make sure they are never used as political bargaining chips when it comes to their health and well-being. It’s actions like these that are reasons why our nation is experiencing a shortage of recruits and why we might be unable in the future to protect our nation from foreign adversaries - or ourselves.

LETTER FROM THE HIA-LI PRESIDENT & CEO

Dear Valued Long Island Business Leader:

On September 20th, we were honored to present our 28th Annual HIA-LI Business Achievement Awards to four outstanding Long Island enterprises at an award ceremony. The event took place at a gala luncheon at the Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury.

The HIA-LI Business Achievement Awards recognize industry leadership, creativity, successful business operations, corporate vision, and forward-looking development/growth strategies.

Competitors represented four award categories: Large Businesses, Small Businesses, Not-For-Profit, and Rookie of the Year.

The Large Business recipient was Engel Burman, a fully integrated real estate company that uses its abilities to discover unique and special opportunities to develop, build, and manage new facilities. The other Large Business finalists were L.N.K. International Inc., Little Angels Center, PSEG LI, and Citrin Cooperman.

The recipient of the Small Business Award was National Business Capital, a financing company set out to help entrepreneurs save time and grow their businesses. Other finalists in the Small Business category included Creative Plan Designs Ltd, Electrical Training Center, Allied Risk Management, and National EAP.

The Not-For-Profit recipient was Winters Center for Autism, an organization dedicated to aiding the lives of those with autism with job creation, training, and placement programs. Other not-for-profit nominees were Blue Umbrella Experience, CN Guidance & Counseling Services, Family Service League, Gurwin Healthcare System, and EPIC Long Island.

The Rookie of the Year recipient was Trellus, an organization created by a team of business owners to assist fellow establishments to ensure quality same-day delivery to the local community’s clients and customers. Other Rookie of the Year nominees were Lucidi Technical Solutions LLP., Lety Algeri Coaching, and Pupfish Sustainability Solutions.

The Long Island business sector faces tough competition from elsewhere in the state and country. These four award recipients all practice innovative strategies that position them for success. Other Long Island companies can strengthen their performance by emulating the recipients’ business practices.

We offer our sincere congratulations to the award-winning recipients and finalists. They are all playing a key role in helping to lead Long Island through these very difficult times.

Partners in Business,

National Business Capital helps entrepreneurs secure quick and fair financing to save time and cultivate sustainable growth.

We understand entrepreneurs because we were built by an entrepreneur. Our empathetic approach and company identity are based on the experiences and character of founder Joe Camberato.

Joe started National Business Capital after realizing how challenging it is for business owners to access the funding they need to grow. With a strong vision, determination, and passionate leadership, he grew our firm from a small operation in his spare bedroom to one of the top workplaces on Long Island – all without one dollar of private equity.

Our stress-free online platform is designed for simplicity and speed, helping business owners go from application to approval in a matter of hours. And while we remain a leader in the Fintech industry, our clients agree it’s our personalized service and award-winning team that sets us apart.

From SBA loans to lines of credit, to equipment financing, and more, business owners can access all the different financing programs available to them in one place. Through our streamlined process, we have helped clients secure $2 billion in financing since 2007, and, more importantly, we’ve helped entrepreneurs save a tremendous amount of time and grow faster.

Work with us today so you can get back to what matters most – your business.

Oh, and by the way, we donate 10 meals to Feeding America for every deal we fund!

Monthly Staffing Thoughts

1 (646) 939-3402

keith.haynes@manpower.com

www.manpower.com

The Situation

● When the GDP declines for two consecutive quarters, this is the usual definition of recession. But there are contradictory indicators at work, including the lowest unemployment rate in 50 years and a strong jobs market.

● While the PMI (Purchasing Managers’ Index) did grow in May and June of this year, the rate of growth slowed noticeably.

● With Covid-19, we’ve just gone through the most uncertain period since the recession in 2008 — yet the economy and the workforce remained resilient.

● Part of the reason we may not be plunging into a recession right now is that employers have been planning more thoughtfully, and workers have more leverage.

Workforce Truths

● Demographics don’t lie. On the whole, we have

been trending to be short of the workers we need for years. ManpowerGroup’s 2022 Talent Shortage research reveals that 74% of U.S. employers report “some” to “a lot of” trouble finding the skilled talent they need, a 10-year high.

● Jobs evolve. The 74% number above increases to 77% for employers in Manufacturing. Part of this is related to acceleration of new technologies and the lack of skilled talent to operate in these environments.

● Growth and innovation are driven by talent. It is critical to invest in upskilling and training to grow the skills of your people faster to close the skills gap.

● Growth follows recession. Organizations who win will be the ones who were clear on what drives that growth — innovation and productivity and downright scrappiness — all people-driven.

Employer Watch Outs

● Don’t assume your workers will stay. The Covid-19 pandemic led to the Great Resignation, and coming off 2019-2022, your workforce may be exhausted. A message of “work harder,” will not resonate or motivate; nor will a return to inflexible schedules. It’s important to note that the quit rate hasn’t changed appreciably in over a year and remains high.

● Purpose matters. In our What Workers Want survey, 74% of respondents — of all ages — cited

the importance of finding meaning in their day-today work.

4 things you can be doing right now

● Calculate your Total Workforce Cost. Labor costs make up about 40% of your total workforce cost. What’s in the rest? Analyze what your workforce is truly costing you.

● Think about what workers want. While higher compensation continues to be at the top of the list for workers, there are other factors that heavily impact a worker’s satisfaction. Employees want more from their employer in the way of leadership. Workers want workplaces with supportive managers (74%) and trusted leaders (71%) that offer more flexibility, autonomy, trust, coaching and development

● Focus on retaining critical talent and adding flexibility. To remain resilient, competitive and achieve market growth, hold on to your best and brightest. Ensure that you retain the critical people and strategic roles that typically hold your organizational knowledge.

● Improve retention through purpose. Purpose at work and understanding how one’s work contributes to the greater good matters to workers across all generations. Imbuing a sense of purpose in your workers is important, and it starts with management.

Using DocIt Document Management To Improve Employee Productivity And Reduce Your Printing Costs

So just what is Document Management?

Document Management is the process of moving paper-based documents into a digital format by applying indexing data to data fields, and simple search and retrieval from anywhere at any time. Unlike a word document or a pdf that may require a file name and location to find a document, with a document management system all you need to do is apply a name, number, or whatever search criteria your business chooses to use.

Any document can be found in matter of seconds.

A few scenarios to consider:

1. If you are still using file cabinets, think about how long it may take to walk to a file cabinet, search to find the file folder, then the document inside that folder you are looking for, and the time it takes to put it back. (If it gets put back!)

2. A filing cabinet uses up about 6 square feet of space, what is your business paying per square

keepingcurrent

foot of space?

3. Perhaps you get a phone call from a customer or sales representative in the field that needs a copy of something on the spot….just how long would it take to do that? Could it cost them the deal? Do you have to tell your customer, “I’ll have to call you back once I find it”?

4. Are your printing purchase orders, bills, invoices, HR documents, etc. on your laser printer or copier, just to put more paper in the filing cabinet? How much money are you spending on paper, toner, click charges, or copier leases?

5. Instead of printing on paper, you can print to a “virtual printer” directly into your document management system.

6. Do you have the need to share documents with project managers or with real estate property managers? Would electronically “filing” a document and have it automatically shared to OneDrive or Google Drive improve your productivity and reduce document request?

7. Consider when you have to reconcile your accounting system like Quickbooks…instead of searching filing cabinets for invoices, bills, or purchase orders, you can click and copy text and enter it right into Quickbooks after they have been printed virtually or scanned.

8. Businesses with multiple locations can also set up a centralized shared scan folder on scanners or MFP Copiers for indexing and shared storage folders so anyone with permissions can scan or search the same folder from their computer, tablet, or smart phone.

9. Some Document Management software is proprietary which locks you into a particular vendors software, we use a non-proprietary system that can be used with any PC.

10. Once a document is placed in the system, any document can be E-mailed, printed out (if necessary), stamped with watermarks, date stamped, custom stamps, hyperlinks to other documents created and much more.

In essence if you can print or scan you can use a document management system to reduce or eliminate much or your printing costs and reduce the labor cost of managing paper. Software trials are available as well.

We also have a very simple document management calculator that you can input your own numbers and employee count and see just how much money you would be able to save by implementing our system.

For business leaders, the phrase can imply both danger and opportunity. And either way, the need to attract and retain a talented workforce that adds agility and value to your business is paramount.

Roughly 86% of employees say that job training is important to them—and nearly three out of every four (74%) are willing to learn outside of work hours to improve their job performance, according to a survey by Curiosity at Work.

At Suffolk County Community College, we help our region’s businesses develop skilled talent pools by preparing a pipeline of workers with the academic, technical and workplace skills businesses demand.

More often than not, the talent and skills an employer needs already exist within their workforce. Business leaders can partner with Suffolk County Community College to create an internal development and hiring strategy and save time and resources.

Here’s how.

Suffolk collaborates with employers to enhance their existing workforce by identifying the specific needs of the employer; identifying and quantifying the resources needed to support in-service training; replicating the environment students will encounter in the workplace by incorporating state-of-the-art equipment; and establishing partnerships

with K-12, university systems, governmental agencies and community organizations to develop a pipeline of trainees –and ultimately qualified employees – to support local industry. But, don’t take my word for it.

Robert Kufner, president and chief executive officer of Designatronics, a 200-employee, Hicksville-based maker of small to medium-size power transmission products recently partnered with our team at Suffolk and boasted about our program’s fit for his company.

“Suffolk’s program provides access to new employees to help us grow,” Kufner said. “Not having job-ready employees has held us back as much as 10 percent per year on our growth trajectory. We even have new machines here with no one standing in front of them. That’s how bad it has been. We know what resources we need, we just haven’t been able to find the human element. And that’s what Suffolk delivers.”

“We’re going to be sending at least two of my staff per semester to Suffolk for training and then we’re going step up and sponsor two more people through scholarships. There’s no other program on Long Island like this,” Kuffner told us. We can also help businesses with customized management, leadership and computer skills training.

And if cost is a concern we can help. SUNY Workforce Development Training grants may cover up to 75% of training costs for companies moving to New York, expanding their operations or creating new jobs. We up-skilled nearly 700 employees under this annually-funded workforce development program in the 2020-21 academic year.

Adding to our training prowess are the college’s Apprenticeship, Cooperative Education and Internship Programs. The Cooperative Education and Internship Programs have funneled as many as 500 students per year to area companies to garner valuable work experience. Suffolk co-op students and interns bring a fresh outlook and creative problem-solving skills to the workplace and

frequently offer perspectives and suggestions that lead to significant company contributions.

Our employer-driven Advanced Manufacturing Apprenticeship Program is the only state-approved apprenticeship relatedinstruction program on Long Island run through the New York State Department of Labor, and it supports skilled trades such as CNC Machinist, Industrial Manufacturing Technician, and Maintenance Mechanic (Automation Equipment), among others.

In addition, the college offers a traditional, comprehensive menu of arts and sciences and preprofessional classes for students preparing for baccalaureate programs and an array of career-facing certificates and degrees, including allied health professions, business, culinary and hospitality, cybersecurity, engineering, nursing, and many others, most of which include industry-recognized certifications.

We also understand students’ work, life and family obligation time constraints. To help, we are offering a new, flexible, scheduling option -- MicroMesters -- to accommodate timeconstrained students’ needs. We’ve taken a traditional 15week semester and split it into two 7.5-week “MicroMesters.” It’s a great way to earn credits in many disciplines in a compressed time frame.

The end result of all of our collaborative business efforts? Suffolk develops local talent, supports regional businesses and keeps skilled young adults living and working here on Long Island. We, joined by our industry partners, reinforce the value of the critical jobs of the future so that young people understand the importance of skilled professions, that they are in-demand, well-paying and essential to our economy and unlocking economic mobility.

The team at Suffolk County Community College looks forward to collaborating with you and helping you grow your business.

The job market is tight. We don’t need to see news reports to know that our clients — in every industry — are facing an employee shortage.

After two years of mandated “work form home,” many business owners expected their employees to look forward to returning to a business setting. But the truth is that many long-term staffers and potential new hires realized that remote work gave them more flexibility, even if it was simply the time saved “commuting” from the living room to the home office.

As with any business challenge, very often the answer is smart marketing.

A Marketing Challenge

When we start marketing a client’s business, we look for points of differentiation from their competitors. When marketing employment opportunities we need to do the same. Before you submit another job listing to a recruitment site, ask yourself: Why would my target audience (in this case, potential employees) choose my company over the competition? How does my offer differ from my competitors?

Many companies offer full-timers medical insurance, paid time off, sick and vacation days, employee discounts, 401(k) plans and more. Which is great

– but if everyone is offering the same benefits, it doesn’t differentiate your company from competitors who are looking to attract the same job candidates.

To set itself apart, a business might look to boost the work-life balance equation. While these ideas are not feasible for all, or will require carve-outs for seasonal workloads, local companies have considered:

● Changing scheduling patterns, so employees can work shorter shifts on more days or fewer days but longer shifts

● Offering sign-on bonuses

● Providing on-site or third-party childcare

● Expanding personal time off (PTO) policies

● Adding or enhancing education benefits

● And, of course, re-assessing salaries for current and incoming employees.

Short term, these benefits increase your costper-employee. On the other hand, how much is being short-staffed costing you? Are you losing customers because of long wait times for products or services? Are you at risk of losing long-term, reliable employees because they are overworked and burnt out from unrealistic overtime? When you can determine how much a new hire would be worth to you, you can start to develop a recruitment marketing budget.

With budget in hand, it’s time to consider your outreach options. There are your traditional routes: ‘help wanted” posts on local news and community websites, outreach to training programs or technical schools and postings to online job sites, eblasts to customers and signs all over your workplace.

If these haven’t been working for you, it’s time to get creative.

New Outreach that Works

You have now determined how much your new employees are worth to your business, developed benefit offers that can’t be refused, your “we’re hiring” sign is up, and every personal and professional contact has been asked to recommend prospects.

And?

If you are still looking for employees, it could be time to advertise to them the way you would a new service. Digital advertising campaigns offer multiple outreach options and unique targeting capabilities. These platforms offer flexible budgeting and scheduling. Gone are the requirements to spend thousands of dollars over six or 12 months – in fact we recently ran a test campaign on Facebook for 3 days with a $10 budget, and the company received 6 applications and hired 2 new employees. With that highly successful test completed, this client has cancelled its expensive online job site subscriptions and moved those funds to an expansive campaign over Facebook, Google and our programmatic server.

Facebook offers two outreach options – their “Jobs” boards that can be searched by anyone, as well as their ad platform that hangs your “Help Wanted” sign directly in users’ newsfeeds. Google display ads are seen on any site that is part of its network and search ads find candidates actively searching for work. You can target these ads to users within a 15-mile radius of your office or cover entire counties or even states as well as choose contextual clues and interests to reach the appropriate viewers.

With programmatic advertising, your ads are shown on websites, apps and games on all devices. You can pinpoint potential hires by education levels, current job title and hundreds of other filters. You can further target individuals searching for

similar jobs or visiting job sites; or geo-target your advertising to people nearing or entering specific stores, office buildings, training schools, unemployment offices … or going to Starbucks at 2 in the afternoon for coffee and free Wi-Fi. One client, looking for long-haul drivers, targeted users parked overnight at truck stops and rest areas on major highways.

While each campaign is different, we have had success with digital recruitment for several clients, and the bulk of the applications received were from legitimate, qualified individuals at a lower cost than the online job sites.

Last Thoughts

In every campaign there is a sampling of responses from veterans or individuals from other industries, especially for non-technical/non-licensed positions. These applicants can offer a fresh perspective, experience and maturity, and could quickly become your most valued employees with just a bit of training.

It can be easy to convince yourself that you can “make do” at your current staffing levels, but that could be a very expensive misconception. It leads to an overworked staff, sloppy work, and unhappy customers. When fully staffed, however, your company will run more smoothly, customers will receive better service, and you can make more sales. And that leads to a better bottom line.
