A leader’s priority list BY DOUG TESCHNER
Set aside time to write down life goals and leadership approaches that you believe are most important. ... Reflect on how your actions have impacted yourself and others, seek out feedback from colleagues, and periodically review and update your list.
Douglass P. Teschner, founder of Growing Leadership LLC, can be reached at dteschner@GrowingLeadershipLLC.com.
Writing things down helps clarify what’s most important
recently had an interesting conversation with Mark Franklin, head of IT at Dartmouth’s engineering school. We got talking about leadership styles and practices, and he followed up with an email: “Over many years and with little formal training (I’m an engineer who got managerial responsibilities 1.5 years into my career), I have evolved my management style experimenting with what seem to me to be common sense ideas.” He added: “It was helpful to me to put these ideas in words,” and went on to list some of his key principles, including: • Let people have input into what they work on. If it’s at least in part their idea, they’ll be more engaged. • Once people experience how powerful a collaborative team can be, they buy in. • A strong team helps recruit more strong team members. • Catch people doing something right and reward it, even if the reward is just a quick thank you. • Hire people who demonstrate aptitude and desire to learn: The ability to learn is much more important in the end than having particular skills. • Consensus-building is worth the investment. Forcing decisions should be rare and in special circumstances. • We take credit as a team, and we take responsibility as a team. • There’s plenty of credit to go around — share it whenever you can and encourage others to do so, too. It is contagious once people realize how good it feels. • Brainstorming needs to be safe. No ridicule of “bad” ideas. • Empower people to make decisions, take risks and experiment. Don’t tell them what they can’t do. • Trust people until/unless there is a problem. Most will more than live up to that. • Diversity of skills, life experience, work experience, perspective, etc. all bring value to the team. • Make constant improvements in small increments. This reduces risk and makes sure we focus on what matters most. • Advocate for your people. Just knowing you have their back is usually enough for them to go fix conflicts on their own. Mark, like many leaders, was promoted into a leadership role with little training, but he clearly
made the most of it, and, reading what he wrote, I bet he has been leading high-performing teams. He also embraced a key idea that taking the time to put your ideas in writing is almost always worthwhile. Writing things down forces you to think through and better define your ideas. My personal list starts with a few overarching principles for life and work, including: • To inspire myself and others to achieve a higher level of personal and professional performance. • To treat everyone with dignity and respect, and advocate for others to do the same. Then, I added a “to be” list, with related quotes to help sustain motivation. For example: • Cultivate gratitude, hopefulness and positive energy (“There are always flowers for those who want to see them.” — Henry Matisse) • Honor family, friendships and connections (“What can I do in this moment to make this other person feel more capable and powerful?” — Jim Kouzes) • Commit to purposeful community activities (“What we do in life echoes in eternity.” — Maximus) • Embrace health and mindfulness (“The more clearly we see a challenging emotion, the less power it has over us.” — Headspace) • Continuous self-improvement, including more humility, better listening and increased empathy (“How do I want to be seen today?” — Ken Blanchard). Getting feedback from others is important, too. Peter Kozodoy has written about the Johari window, a technique to help better understand what you know about yourself as well as your blind spots. This is one approach to reflect and get invaluable feedback. Are you clear what leadership practices are most important for your work? Are you consistently living your values in practical ways? Set aside time to write down life goals and leadership approaches that you believe are most important. Then think about times you have applied them and also when you maybe came up short. Reflect on how your actions have impacted yourself and others, seek out feedback from colleagues, and periodically review and update your list. We each have an extraordinary opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives, including our own. Don’t underestimate your impact!

The new workplace reality BY JASON ALEXANDER
It is critical to look at every aspect of the employee experience and come to an honest conclusion of how competitive you really are. There is always room to improve.
Culture and employee experience may require reinvention from the ground up
n my humble opinion, there has never been a cooler or more innovative time to be in human resources than today. The status quo has died at our feet, and our workplace culture and employee experience, in many cases, require reinvention from the ground up. How do we harness technology and remote work to keep everyone safe? How can camaraderie be fostered with everyone at such a distance? What conditions might make your company’s workforce acquisition and retention strategies more vulnerable? These questions, and more, must be proactively addressed in order to optimize your organization’s competitive advantage during these unprecedented times when markets are soaring and talent is scarce. Step 1: Realize your surroundings • Limited talent: In the 20 years I have been involved in staffing and recruiting, there has never been a time when talented professionals were more difficult to find than today. While most of us have absorbed the harsh reality of the current market conditions, there are still a few outliers who believe that a bad pandemic must mean a bad market and that people are easier to find than they are. It’s time to realize that some unparalleled measures will be necessary to acquire talent at a rate that doesn’t sacrifice opportunity. • Impacted company culture: The last two years have inevitably altered the look and feel of workplace culture, if not completely turned it on its head. I want to tell you it’s OK. None of us have been here before, and it’s important that your staff knows you are working proactively to navigate these waters, no matter how foreign they may seem. • Evaluating workforce acquisition and retention strategies: For now, it’s simply critical to come to the table and realize that the attributes that drew people to join and stay at your company may not be perceived the same way as they were two years ago.
Jason Alexander is a managing partner of Bedford-based BANKW, parent company of the staffing and recruiting firms KBW, Alexander Technology Group, The Nagler Group, Sales Search Partners and KNF&T Staffing Resources.

Step 2: Some winning strategies • Hot markets mean more spending: There is plenty of exception to this rule but, for the most part, the salary you paid for job X, Y or Z will cost you more today than it did two years ago. The most successful organizations are looking at their payroll with the proactive eye for retention instead of the eye for the minimum it might take to acquire talent. If you are paying someone the same today as you did two years ago, it’s certainly advisable to look at that position and ensure you are being as competitive as possible. Turnover almost always costs more than retention. • Remote workforce: Your best competitors are doing all they can to allow as much workfrom-home as possible. I completely agree with those who suggest the importance of in-person interaction, which is why it’s great if you can make working in the office optional for those who want it. But at the end of the day, you don’t want to lose your best people to another organization that is more willing to be creative. Remove mountains, lakes and hiking trails from your benefits list: This is coming from a serious lover of the outdoors, but please — no more assumptions that close proximity to hiking, fishing and skiing equates to justifying a substantial pay cut. In today’s market, your best employees can work for a city-based organization, be highly compensated, and work from home in the mountains or on the lake. • Re-addressing benefits and attractors: It is critical to look at every aspect of the employee experience and come to an honest conclusion of how competitive you really are. There is always room to improve, and the most successful organizations are fighting for every inch of competitiveness. How flexible is your paid-time-off program? Have you considered unlimited PTO? Does your benefits program address the psychological health of your employees as well as it could? What is your company’s messaging and what do you stand for? These are important to answer to attract and retain the market’s best talent. Whether you seek talented employees, greater market share and/or personal fulfillment, I wish you all the best.

4 network security tips for the hybrid workplace BY BARRY BADER
From company devices to employees’ personal phones and guest devices, each of them represents a potentially vulnerable endpoint, and each contains myriad pathways into your network through apps and systems.
The best defense is a strong, proactive offense
hile it’s mostly big businesses and high-profile hacks that make headlines, small to medium-sized businesses and organizations are also targets for bad actors — costing them downtime, data, business and revenue. The best network defense is a strong, proactive security offense. Here are four tips for organizations looking to shore up their cybersecurity protocols and products: 1. Implement a mix of threat monitoring, firewalls and antivirus solutions: Threat
monitoring, firewalls and antivirus solutions are all valuable cybersecurity measures, but they should be used in tandem with each other and alongside smart online hygiene practices, which are basic steps that network users should take to maintain the overall health and safety of the network and its data. Select tools that frequently update to help protect against the newest threats, and cover every connected device on your network. Antivirus tools detect and block malicious files, but many only block malware they recognize based on signatures that have been written into the AV software. Meanwhile, firewalls allow only authorized traffic or content using configured controls, like access denial to IP addresses known to deliver malware. Even if a malicious payload is delivered, firewalls can prevent it from communicating with control-and-command servers. 2. Manage devices and passwords for an extra layer of security:

From company devices to employees’ personal phones and guest devices, each of them represents a potentially vulnerable endpoint, and each contains myriad pathways into your network through apps and systems. One weak password, bad password management or a few errant keystrokes on a suspicious website can invite a breach. Enact strong patch management policies or, even better, automate software updates. Not updating in a timely fashion can open you up to threats, as hackers become aware of loopholes and try to exploit them.Leverage a password management solution. Password management tools not only generate strong passwords but store them for easy access. Be careful with external devices like flash drives. External devices can carry malware that’s loaded onto your device when connected. If they’re used with multiple devices on your network, infec-
tions can spread quickly. 3. Enact strong policies, practices: Embed
a proactive security stance into your company’s DNA. By codifying certain elements of your cybersecurity approach through policy and process, you can ensure that cybersecurity remains an ongoing priority. Select threat monitoring tools that frequently update to help protect against the newest threats and cover every connected device on your network. Simultaneously, operate a zero-trust environment, where no device or user, either inside or outside an organization, should be trusted inherently. In addition, you can use virtual private networks when accessing sensitive applications remotely, as they allow employees to access company networks and systems through a secure connection. Businesses should also back up and encrypt any personally identifiable information they collect, as well as any other potentially sensitive information, like company financials or intellectual property. Backups are not only a best practice, they can help with recovery in the event of a breach or ransomware attack. 4. Educate your users: Threats evolve over time, so make it a regular practice to formally train employees on online hygiene. If you don’t have anyone on staff, consider bringing in an outside trainer. Good online hygiene doesn’t just protect company information, it protects personal information, too. It’s essential to not only mount defenses but to also prepare a detailed plan outlining what to do if you do find yourself the victim of a cyberattack. Include contingencies such as having to resume operations from an alternative location and how to respond if the breach occurs after hours or when response team members are away. Designate crossfunctional team members who should respond in the event of a breach, or have a cybersecurity consultant or contractor easily accessible to assist. To be ready for what’s next, organizations need to implement cybersecurity measures that include antivirus programs, firewalls and network security solutions that proactively help protect all devices connected to your network.

The post-Covid workplace BY BILL RYAN
Balancing productivity with wellbeing in the modern era will only grow as a necessary calibration, and younger workers are likely to show the way in the context of adaptable work styles.
Bill Ryan writes about career, employment and economic topics from his home in North Sutton.
16 BUSINESS RESOURCES NH 2022
Younger workers are likely to show the way when it comes to adaptable work styles The knowledge economy office workplace got a sudden shakeup over the past year-plus. At its peak, not that long ago, the pre-vaccinated officebased workforce was functioning more from home than from the traditional office, approximately 10 times more so than pre-pandemic rates. According to the University of Chicago, as recently as March 2021 45% of work services were still being performed in home environments. This begs the question: Is office work going to snap back to the way it was with workers committing to long hours away from family spent in bustling office buildings arrived to via thick commuting traffic? And if so, why? Whether or not the Covid pandemic has unwittingly ushered in a paradigm shift in how work is dispensed over the long term is yet to be determined. It will certainly be one of the interesting trends to observe over the next few years. At present, a look at some of the currently available, albeit sparse, indicators seem to show some degree of change in how work operation is conducted may be with us for the foreseeable future. It is fair to assume most managements desire a return to normal times, during which management practices to which they were accustomed can be resumed. If there is to be a more permanent realignment to include more flexibility, such as remote work activity, it probably will not willingly come from supervisors. To dust off that old business expression from the 20th century, it will come from the rank and file. A Microsoft WorkLab report from earlier this year reveals some pertinent findings. Nearly threequarters of employees wish for an option to work remotely. Although remote work has its downsides, enough workers have experienced that productivity can still be maintained by way of technological means in a comfortable environment with less stress and less exhaustion. Demand for a more permanent, flexible, distributive, blended or hybrid production model has arisen among office employees, according to this report.
Older Gen Z and younger millennials form a cohort that may be informative here. Living and working from devices is second nature to them. It is reasonable to expect the momentum for more flexibility will come from them. If their résumés and LinkedIn profiles start showing more quantifiable accomplishments derived from working remotely, they will be communicating not only that they can do it, but that they want to be hired for positions honoring such skills. Balancing productivity with well-being in the modern era will only grow as a necessary calibration, and younger workers are likely to show the way in the context of adaptable work styles. Businesses need not be driven into this transformation kicking and screaming. Signs are emerging among C-levels showing a recognition of the likely changes to come. A Work Trend Index survey conducted by Edelman Data & Intelligence discloses that 66% of business leaders are contemplating refashioning office space to allow for more flexibility. Reasons are twofold. As implied earlier, the workforce appears to be increasingly desirable of workplace flexibility. This could likely become an incentive for luring needed talent not wanting to be bound by traditional institutional rules. Additionally, business is identifying some benefits as a result of the Covid-induced remote working experiment in terms of lower overhead, as reported by NPR, and increased productivity, as claimed by Harvard Business Review. It is likely that multiple variations on a hybrid model will become established moving forward that incorporate combinations of conventional office-centric requirements with increased distributive or remote work options for employees. Although no one could have reasonably predicted that a congruence of modern communication technologies with a global pandemic would steer this trend, the result could ultimately be a boon for workers and their bosses. Let us hope employers give such changes serious consideration.

BIA forum looks at how to deal with substance abuse in the workplace BY BOB SANDERS
Mirjam IJtsma, people services director of Worthen Industries, said she attended the Business and Industry Association of NH’s “Opioids in the Workplace” forum on May 18 in Manchester to learn more about substance abuse. About half of the performance issues at Worthen, an industrial adhesives firm in Nashua, are addiction-related, she told NH Business Review. And almost all of that drug abuse arises following a longtime work absence to recuperate from an injury or illness, often with the help of
pain medication. “It’s a big problem. Anyone telling you that it isn’t, doesn’t know their employees,” she said. It’s not just that more than 400 people died in New Hampshire last year from opioid-related overdoses. Substance abuse has resulted in a nearly $2 billion drain on the state’s economy – a figure determined before opioid abuse became an all-out crisis in New Hampshire. In fact, the very idea that the BIA held the forum shows how front and center the issue has become. For instance, when forum moderator Kevin Flynn asked the

What to know about trademarks BY BRIAN THOMAS
Trademark law is complicated. But understanding the basics, and knowing when to bring in trademark counsel, puts you in a position to reap value from this valuable business asset.
Understand the basics to reap your business rewards
very business should know how to select, use and protect its trademarks. Failure to do so can diminish its brand, cause financial harm and result in unwanted lawsuits. Add value to your organization by learning and practicing the following basic guidelines. • A business name is not necessarily a trademark. Don’t assume that your business’s legal entity name is also its protected trademark. A trademark is the name under which a good is sold, and a service mark is the name under which a service is provided (this article uses “trademark” to refer to both). You must take steps to register and protect a trademark. Merely forming an entity under that name is not enough. • Register your mark with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Doing so provides great value for only a modest investment: use of the ® symbol to deter would-be infringers; priority rights to the mark in every state; placement in the USPTO database used to check mark availability; the right to sue in federal court; and a valuable asset that you can license or sell. • Use the correct symbol. Using the ® symbol without a USPTO registration is against the law. If your mark is not yet registered, use ™ for a trademark and for a service mark. Doing so signals that you claim ownership of the mark, which deters others from using it. • Avoid generic and descriptive marks. A generic mark is a common term for a good or service (“Apple” for fruit), and cannot be registered as a trademark. A suggestive mark describes a characteristic of a good or service (“Cold and Creamy” for ice cream), and can be registered in only limited circumstances. Avoid both types.
Attorney Brian Thomas of the law firm Sheehan Phinney is an intellectual property attorney and business litigator.
20 BUSINESS RESOURCES NH 2022
• Pick suggestive, arbitrary and fanciful marks. A strong, registerable mark is suggestive (it implies a characteristic of the good or service, but requires imagination to connect that characteristic with the mark, like Netflix® for streaming), arbitrary (it has a common meaning that is unrelated to the good or service, like Apple® for computers) or fanciful (made-up term with no meaning, like Exxon® for fuel). Use those types of marks.
• Clear your mark. Adopting a trademark similar to one already in use can prevent you from registering that mark, or result in a lawsuit. The existing mark need not be identical: Marks that look similar, have a similar pronunciation, or provide a similar commercial impression can all prevent use and registration of your mark. Well before using a trademark, perform a “clearance” search for existing marks. The stakes are high, and the analysis is nuanced. Rely on a professional. • Protect your mark. Once registered, you must watch for, and take efforts to stop, any infringement or unauthorized use of your mark. Failing to do so can weaken your mark over time. This need not be a costly endeavor: Many companies offer low-cost monitoring services, and an experienced trademark attorney can often resolve infringement with a timely cease and desist letter. • Use license agreements. Allowing others to use your mark can bring big benefits: strategic partnerships, co-branding and royalty payments. But only do so with a well-drafted license agreement in place. Without one, you risk losing control of, or weakening, your registered mark. • Use and renew your mark. Unlike a patent or copyright, a trademark registration can last forever if it is continuously used and all USPTO renewal filings are made on time. Renewal deadlines are spaced out in five and 10-year increments, and filings can be tricky. Rely on trademark counsel to track deadlines and meet filing requirements. Failure to do so can result in loss of your registration. • Don’t let your mark become generic. Your mark can lose legal protection if it becomes the generic term for a class of goods or services. “Aspirin,” “escalator” and “thermos” are examples of once valuable trademarks that were later held to be generic terms, free for anyone to use. Never use your mark as a generic noun or verb, and take efforts to stop others that do. Trademark law is complicated. But understanding the basics — and knowing when to bring in trademark counsel — puts you in a position to reap value from this valuable business asset.

Time for some real talk on DEI BY DEO MWANO
Highly skilled minority employees have so much to offer beyond their demographics. Business leaders must be committed to new recruitment and retention practices in order to benefit from the diversity of ideas and experiences they bring.
Deo Mwano, a business owner and community advocate based in Manchester, is principal of Deo Mwano Consultancy.

Employers must commit to new practices in order to benefit from recruiting, and retaining, diversity of ideas and experiences
s a workforce culture consultant and an expert in diversity, equity and inclusion, I have helped many businesses struggling to recruit and maintain minority employees. I’m always enthusiastic to assist with this, as I can understand the challenge from both the employer and employee perspective. I define minority employees or minority groups as anyone that is underrepresented within an organization. The underrepresentation may be, but is not limited to, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, ethnicity, nationality, socioeconomic status, language, ability, age, religious commitment or political perspective. I have worked with minority leaders in different sectors who struggle to find a sense of belonging within their organizations. Workplace culture determines how they navigate their identity within the organization (and often the community in which they live as a result of a relocation). Highly skilled minority employees are in demand. They have more autonomy and flexibility than some employers recognize, which means they can easily leave a job and find a role that’s a better fit. Employers and minority employees would be better off with recruitment and retention strategies aimed at fully integrating new employees from underrepresented demographics. I often hear frustration from employers about not being able to retain minority employees after investing so much during the recruitment and orientation phase. The aggravation is often accompanied by astonishment that someone would choose to leave a prestigious position and a big paycheck. It sometimes sounds like they, the employer, were doing the minority employee a favor by bringing them to work for their company. I start by reminding the employer that they do not have the upper hand in the engagement. The reason the minority employee has the advantage is because they have skills and talent that are in demand and that comes with constant interest from recruiters and other employers. They can take their talent anywhere. They will not stick around because you have decided to go out of your way to recruit them. They don’t owe you loyalty, especially if you, the employer, have not invested in an inclusive workforce culture.
I tell business owners that in order to maximize the investment of recruiting highly skilled minorities, you have to do your due diligence. It is incumbent upon employers to set up recruited minority employees for success both inside and outside of work. Is the person you are recruiting a good fit for your corporate culture and, if they are relocating, are there points of connection for them in the community? Many businesses think they can spend their way out of this problem. Some employers rely too much on compensation, especially if it is a minority often associated with lower socioeconomic status. Do not rely on competitive salary or perks to keep minority employees around if they are struggling with identity inclusion and equity within your company or community. Companies can do some preliminary work that can help enhance minority employee satisfaction with the organization and the greater community. Employers must be intentional in getting to know the new hire beyond the skill sets they bring to the company. Without being invasive, ask questions such as: • What do they like to do for fun/social activities? • Do they belong to a faith community? • Are they part of any affinity groups? • What types of food do they like to eat? • What do they like to do for entertainment? • Where do they go for haircuts/salons? Minority employees know that they'll have to adapt to a new culture when they accept a new position. But they also recognize that when they start to feel undervalued or unappreciated, they can move to an organization or a community more receptive to them. Let’s not forget what a loss that is for your organization. This goes way beyond a financial loss. That individual might be the person you needed to help take your organization to the next level. Highly skilled minority employees have so much to offer beyond their demographics. Business leaders must be committed to new recruitment and retention practices in order to benefit from the diversity of ideas and experiences they bring.

Technology for businesses Four ways it can help in an ever-changing world BY TABATHA MCKAY
One of the best ways for New Hampshire small businesses to thrive in this 'new normal' is to tap into technology, as there are various solutions and tips that can help business owners thrive.
obody is making it through the Covid-19 pandemic unscathed, including New Hampshire small businesses. And that’s a big deal, considering that small businesses generate about 44% of all economic activity in the United States. But 2021 was a different year, one that found the economy firing back up. Small businesses are rebounding and poised to help fuel the recovery. One of the best ways for New Hampshire small businesses to thrive in this “new normal” is to tap into technology, as there are various solutions and tips that can help business owners thrive. Go touchless Shoppers have slowly gotten back into the retail groove, but many still have reservations about touching highly trafficked surfaces, including credit card readers. Having a contactless payment option allows customers to pay with confidence. The Square payment app is one of the most powerful mobile payment apps on the market. Pairing the Square app with a mobile card reader converts a smartphone or tablet into a fully functional digital cash register.
Tabatha McKay is area vice president/ general manager in New England for USCellular.
Get social During Covid-19, conditions constantly changed. New Hampshire small businesses that managed to navigate the pandemic successfully did so in part by harnessing the power of social media to share valuable information and updates with their customers. Using Facebook, Twitter
and Instagram to communicate about open hours, services and sales — not to mention updates on unforeseen closures and other incidents — is a great way to keep customers informed. Go digital Even before Covid, having an up-to-date and mobile-friendly website was key for small businesses. Now that online business has boomed because of the pandemic, it’s even more important for small businesses to have a user-friendly website that allows customers to browse and buy from their mobile phone or computer. According to a Google study, 76% of people who use their smartphones to search for something nearby, end up visiting a business within a day. Keep sites updated and current to ensure sites are providing New Hampshire customers with accurate information. Get remote The pandemic taught people how to work remotely, and to do it well. While it doesn’t work for all small businesses, many can benefit from allowing their employees to work remotely by using platforms like Zoom, Google Meet or Microsoft Teams. The key to effective videoconferencing services is a solid network that ensures smooth streaming for employees, customers and anyone else who’s logging in. Now is the time for small businesses to take another look at how to use technology to maximize their opportunities.

Our daily struggle with digital over-stimulation is continuous and real. With emails, pop-up ads, and notifications, we are often in sensory overload. Reading a print publication is a focused experience outside of the digital realm. Printed content has tested better with brand recall than digital, and is easier on the eyes. Bottom line: printed publications provide readers with a meaningful and memorable experience. We help you create compelling publications so your readers truly understand the allure of the printed word.

Leveling the marketing field BY CHUCK SINK
Even if you can easily sell your service or products nationally, your initial focus should be local where you can better afford to dominate the market.
How a small business can beat a big business in selling products or services
ave you ever become interested in starting a bold new initiative, decided to do it, and then said inwardly, “Wait, what did I really get myself into?” We’ve all been there. There are times to take big leaps, but other times when you honestly assess your lack of experience and resources for something and wisely decide instead to either go back to school or talk to experts and get some experience first. Going national for a small business is kind of like that, especially without infused capital and talent. Even if you can easily sell your service or products nationally, your initial focus should be local where you can better afford to dominate the market. If you operate a small business, try competing for national market share with your biggest competitor — probably a large corporation with a local office in every city and hefty marketing budgets for each. The marketing playing field You probably do pretty well in your home market where you have a stake, have the resources to cover it and where people already know you. How much money would you need to spend to acquire strong brand awareness across the country where nobody has heard of you? More than you have, so national advertising, including digital, would be ill-advised. Small business owners who have the ability to sell nationally often compete with dominating giants in their industries. These giants have purchased as well as earned organic search ranking authority in Google and the other search engines, and pay handsomely to keep it! It can be frustrating to attempt to penetrate an already competitive market with thousands of dollars when your top two or three national competitors are probably spending millions in Pay Per Click advertising and SEO campaigns. You can’t use a penlight to illuminate your brand when you really need the sun.
Chuck Sink, owner of Chuck Sink Link, a marketing agency in Sunapee, can be reached through chucksinklink.com.

Outplay and outshine A local market is vastly different from the whole country. The playing field is leveled when you concentrate your advertising spending within a small geographic footprint such as a county, state or tri-state region. If you’re ready to invest in growth start with your home turf and define the geo footprint. That way, your ad concentration can match or exceed what the “big boys” are spending there. Of course, this is the market where your name is already known. Widening your market is your next step to growth. The winning growth strategy Before you pour money into the 3,000-mile-wide country only to be as visible in most markets as a needle in a haystack, gain some local and regional experience with your digital marketing campaigns. Even while technology enables more businesses to deliver services nationally over the internet or ship products across the country more rapidly and affordably, the whole thing is too vast for small budgets to have any significant reach. The trick is to aim your high beams in one key market at a time, starting locally where your focused rays of brand messaging can light up the whole area and attract customers. If you own a small business, start locally with your ad campaign’s initial launch. Use A/B testing of ad messaging in one market, then analyze the results. Apply what you learn regionally in other similar markets. Plan and execute your ad spending on pace with your growth as you roll out wider campaigns. If your local campaign generates successful results, keep pushing the campaign out further as sales increase. Dial in your messaging based on the acquired customer data and enjoy your growing success!

Getting communications right BY MATT COOKSON
Here we are in 2022 and a third calendar year in which we long for, but do not expect, predictability and normalcy. No longer will temporary or patchwork internal communications methods suffice — strategies and procedures need to be reviewed and revise to address this seismic shift.
Matt Cookson, president and CEO of Cookson Communications, Manchester.
As the remote workplace continues, are you communicating with your employees effectively?
n April 2020, I wrote a piece for NH Business Review on what we might expect for the new normal as of Labor Day 2020. While I got a few predictions right, I also missed the mark on some others. I am not making new predictions, but instead look at the shifting role of internal communications and the role it currently plays in the workforce and the redefined “workplace.” Looking at some of the themes in the local media at the end of 2021, one that cropped up several times was the number of proposals coming forward to retrofit urban office spaces into apartments. In Manchester alone, four new projects proposing hundreds of new apartments were floated, the largest of which would convert much of the tallest and most notable office building in the state — the Brady Sullivan Plaza — into downtown apartments. There are four underlying, but important trends associated with this. First, office space per employee is drastically shrinking and reflects the large growth in remote and hybrid working. Second, with corporate vacancy rates on the rise, converting office space to housing helps address the current housing shortage and meager 1 percent vacancy rate. Third, another end-of-the-year headline was that New Hampshire was the 12th fastest-growing state from July 2020 through June 2021 due to in-migration — people want to live here. And fourth, hybrid and remote working are here to stay for numerous economic and quality-of-life reasons. It’s this last trend that I want to focus on, because it is a critical factor that must be built into how businesses effectively communicate and connect with their employees (and customers/clients) in a more a virtual versus face-to-face environment. No longer will temporary or patchwork internal communications methods suffice – strategies and procedures need to be reviewed and revise to address this seismic shift. The McKinsey Global Institute noted in a recent report that employee productivity can be 25 percent higher when employees feel connected. Those casual office drop-ins, hallway exchanges and pre- and post-meeting side conversations create connectivity. So does an ongoing exchange of information from management to employees, and vice versa. Those exchanges are even more important for those individuals that are new to the workforce and have not learned the nuances of effective teamwork
and engagement through sufficient face-to-face engagement. This New Year likely reflects the third year when college graduates and others new to the workforce may be missing out on this type of interaction. The temporary ways of conducting internal communications put in place nearly two years ago may need to be adjusted and formalized in recognition of the redefined workplace. Here are several suggestions for 2022: • Make sure you have systems to share important news directly with employees first, and they are not finding out on social media or through the grapevine or company rumor mill. • Did you pause or suspend employee recognition programs? If so, develop a virtual model to restart them. • If your company relied on sharing company news in-person, move to an online e-newsletter. Set a regular production schedule and develop ways employees can contribute. Consider video updates from leadership. • Ensure that all employees are getting regular personal check-in calls from their supervisors; for employees who are newer to the workplace, consider a mentor program. • When rolling out new products, services or initiatives, conduct a webinar to share them with your team and involve multiple team members in the presentation. • Consider a stipend and best practices to help employees who work remotely create a quality home-based work environment. • Don’t overschedule meetings – do 20 minutes instead of 30 or 45 minutes instead of an hour to build in breaks and a little downtime. In general, we’re Zoomed out and back-to-back meetings are not sustainable or healthy. • Many of these tasks could be turned into content that can be shared on your social media feeds. They can help demonstrate a positive, proactive corporate culture that could help HR staff with recruiting. It’s hard to recreate an in-person environment over video, e-mail, Slack or project management software. But these and other tools have become our reality and with a plan and a commitment to internal communications, the effort to do it right will reap rewards for everyone involved.

While in-person events will surely return, there are still values in the technologies used in the pandemic
n this era of social distancing and lingering concerns about in-person gatherings, many businesses have moved their sales meetings, fundraisers and award ceremonies online to a virtual format. Going virtual has proved to be an effective way to communicate during these challenging times, and in the months ahead when life begins to move toward normalcy, it may be wise to incorporate many of today’s learnings into your future communications planning. Success in this environment involves the use of technologies that may be unfamiliar, and the dilemma here is that there isn’t a “one size fits all” solution, when you transition your in-person events to virtual. Deciding how best to reach your audience can be a challenge as you explore the many possible format choices. But don’t worry: The range of options open to you can prove to be a benefit, allowing you to reinvent your event to perform in unique ways that you may have never imagined. Here are a few questions to consider when thinking of how best to structure your event: • Will it be live or pre-recorded? In-studio or on-location? • Do you want to host it on your company’s web platform? • Should your content be presented in an interactive format, or in a strictly presentational style? • Do you want to bring in guest presenters or co-hosts from other locations? • Will your event benefit from live audience interaction, or is it best to handle questions “offline”? • Is it important to present your event “truly” live, or is it more important to create the feeling of a live event while having the comfort that comes from presenting a pre-taped event? For an awards presentation, you may want to consider a live interactive format. In this type of event, there is great value in providing an opportunity for honored guests to speak live, to give thanks and to further inspire other event participants. If you are holding a fundraiser and you have relied on in-person events in the past, you have
a unique challenge as you try to replicate the excitement and the successes of past events. You may want to offer incentives and giveaways to high bidders that only a live event can offer. Consider how to best recreate elements like live auctions and prize giveaways in a virtual live format. Many organizations are opting for pre-taped presentations, which have the benefit of providing the lowest stress to event organizers and offer the most control over content and messaging. An on-camera host is recorded performing the role of emcee, introducing previously recorded presentations and remarks from members of your organization. If you want to bring selected guests in for a socially distant pre-taped session, then it is quite easy to replicate the feel of a live event. Keep in mind that there are infinite variations within these approaches. A hybrid event can consist of elements of your own choosing that incorporate many of the ideas discussed here. Like many emerging patterns in the pandemic, there are opportunities to be found in every situation. Reimagining your events may be a necessity now, but the strategies you employ may provide benefits for the future. Imagine how you might reassign money that was previously spent on accommodations, facility rentals and catering. It can be redirected and utilized differently and be utilized to meet other challenges. Perhaps it is more important to reach a wider audience than was previously practical, or maybe it makes more sense to produce a video to better explain a particularly difficult concept. You also might consider hiring a motivational speaker or professional host to transform your event into something different than you may have previously considered. Traditional in-person events will return, and that will be a welcome sight, especially for the event and hospitality industries, but businesses should still consider the value that virtual and remote technologies bring to their events. They provide an opportunity to utilize the best attributes of in-person meetings with remote technologies to offer better, more efficient and more diverse meetings and corporate events.
