A focus on personal client relationships and service—Terra Firma Global Partners has created a community-based website and social media presence, is driven by a well- thought out business plan and internet marketing strategy, and is committed to support and help each team member to succeed. Integrity and Trust—we pride ourselves on doing the research necessary to help our clients make the best family and business decisions possible. We consider each situation from the client’s perspective because each situation is unique. Communication— in today’s fast paced business world our communication skills need to be effective and timely or opportunities will be lost and small issues become large and usually at a cost to the client.

What are the benefits to our clients? • A company built on developing and maintaining positive business relationships in every community we serve. This adds value for our clients because our peers enjoy working with us.

Even though we are all independent business practitioners, we believe in a team concept. • A company that understands and seeks out technology and innovative marketing to achieve maximum results. • A company with leadership and real estate professionals who have a track record of success. • A company with the ability to reach local, state and international clients through network affiliations and internet strategies.

• A company that prides itself on staying current on all local and state laws, thus reducing the risk to the client. • A company that is locally owned yet has the experience and tools to compete with large national brands. Terra Firma Global Partners – A Real Estate Company for Life, has a different approach and perspective on real estate – It starts with a focus on the client and ends with a focus on the client.

[Example: For more information, contact name, phone number, email address]

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: (date) [Title Here. Example: Joe Learns to Write a Press Release] Description: (optional) This is a very short description about the press release. Many online PR distribution sites will ask for this. [City, State, Date] – The opening paragraph should contain about three to five lines and is considered the most important part of the release, since it catches the attention of editors and journalists. Answer the questions of who, what, when, where and why here. Keep it short and highlight what the whole release is all about. The second and third paragraphs go into a little more depth, but should still be short (try to keep the entire release to less than one page). Give some details of the product you’re discussing or any events taking place. Consider including quotes from company spokespersons or clients here. The last paragraph is known as the “boilerplate” and should contain no more than three to four lines. It’s a short “about” section that provides background on the issuing company, organization or individual. Contact Information for the company or individual goes last: [Company Name] [Address] [Telephone] [Website] ### (This mark lets the reader know that it is the end of the release.)

North Bay Business Resource Guide 2011


Knowyour Finding and Selecting An Architect hen you’re seeking an architect for a project, start by obtaining several names from more than one source. Some architects specialize in designing certain types of structures such as single-family dwellings, multiple residential, commercial, institutional or industrial structures, while others design a variety of building types. You can ask for recommendations from people you know or look in a directory for individuals, firms and professional associations. You can also receive more information about the practice of architecture and referrals from professional associations such as The American Institute of Architects (AIA; www.aia.org). You may find it to your advantage to contact several architects or firms. The California Architects Board (CAB) doesn’t maintain a referral service and cannot recommend architects; however, CAB can advise you if an architect is currently licensed and whether the board has taken any disciplinary action against that architect. After receiving referrals and recommendations from various sources, you’ll need to determine which architect will be able to provide the services you need at a cost you’re willing to pay.

W

Basic criteria Prior to selecting an architect, you need to develop basic criteria for your project and provide this to the architects you’re considering. The basic criteria for your project should include, but not necessarily be limited to: • The size, appearance and functional requirements of your project; • The services you expect the architect to perform; • What you intend to spend for design fees, if known; • What you intend to spend for construction; • How the project will be financed and, if known, by whom; • Anticipated starting and completion dates of your project; and • How you intend to construct the project. Request for information To make sure you get the best person for your project, you should request information on qualifications and experience from several architects. After reviewing their qualifications, you may want to interview a number of architects to determine your compatibility and their understanding of your project. During the selection process, you may want to ask some or all of the following questions. General information • How long have you been in business? • How many people are employed by your firm? • Do you have a valid California architect’s license? If so, what’s the number? • How have you kept current in your practice? • Do you intend to use consultants for this project? If so, who do you propose to use? What are their qualifications? What has been your experience with them? • What percentage of your practice involves the type of structure I intend to build? • Do you carry insurance? If so, what type(s)? How long have you carried each type and what are the policy limits?

Biz

Experience • Have you recently designed the type of structure I intend to build? How many times? • When and what was your most recent project? • May I see examples of your previous projects that are similar to my project (sketches, photos, plans)? • May I have the names, addresses and telephone numbers of the clients for these previous similar projects? • What was the actual construction cost versus budgeted cost for these projects? Services • What will the fee schedule be? • How will your fees for my project be determined and what services do they cover? • Will you provide probable construction cost estimates for my project? • If consultants (civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, geotechnical, testing and inspection) are necessary, are their fees includ ed in your basic fee or are they separate services? • What additional costs (such as permit and other governmental fees) or services (such as time spent obtaining necessary permits and other approvals) do you anticipate for my project? • How do you establish your fees for additional services and reimbursable expenses? • Will there be a charge for redesign if it’s necessary to meet the construction budget? • Will there be additional charges for changes required by the building department or other government agency? • How are additional charges computed for design changes requested by me or requested by a contractor? Time • Can you meet my proposed schedule? Making the final decision It’s wise to check the references that each architect gives you and ask the following questions. • Did the architect adhere to required schedules and budgets? • Were you pleased with the architect’s services and your working relationship with the architect? • Did the architect listen to your concerns and attempt to resolve them? • Would you use the architect again? • What problems surfaced during the project? If possible, visit the projects the architects have used as examples of their services. You can also call the CAB or visit its website at www.cab.ca.gov to verify the license status of any architect(s) you’re considering. Upon written or telephone inquiry, the board will also inform you of any public complaints, or enforcement or disciplinary action against an architect.

Knowyour How Proper Signage Can Improve Your Bottom Line btaining a sign for your business isn’t difficult. However, getting an effective sign—one that will have a positive impact on your business’ income and success—means being aware of the many types of signs and basic sign designs, and also understanding the various types of sign companies, sign construction and more.

O

Types of signage Signs are expanding communication mediums that respond to our mobile lifestyles. Thoughtful use of the visibility features of your business site expands your ability to communicate with passersby. Regardless of the type used, your signage must be appealing to your customers and the message must be readable. When faced with the task of reviewing the many choices of signs available, it helps to first look at the three primary locations in which you’ll typically use on-premise signs. Primarily, there are buildingmounted, freestanding and interior signs. Carefully reviewing the many types of signs within these categories and considering how well they’ll meet your location and business’ needs, will help you select the kind of signs you need for your greatest business success. Building-mounted signs may be attached to the roof, parapet, marquee or building fascia. These signs may be either parallel or perpendicular to the building surface. Freestanding signs are generally supported by a structure attached to or cast in a foundation. The structure and attachments to the foundation may be concealed with a decorative covering. Freestanding signs can be further enhanced by landscaping. On-premise signs can be either internally or externally illuminated. For retail businesses, on-premise signs should be illuminated to accomplish communication with potential customers during nighttime hours. Sometimes a building itself functions as a sign. This occurs most often with franchise and chain retail operations, where standardized (or “signature”) buildings and colors, as well as traditional on-premise signage, announce the presence of the business. Buildings also may be fitted or retrofitted with “trade dress” to design a theme. Retrofitting of a building-façade is often described as a “face lift.” Both building and freestanding signs should be designed to echo the theme or trade dress. Changeable copy boards or electronic message centers enhance a sign’s effectiveness by providing space to advertise time-sensitive messages. Such sign or sign additions can be electronically controlled (the electronic message center) or changed manually (the changeable copy sign). Interior signs are those that advertise the location of businesses located in a common building such as a mall, office building or entertainment complex. They have two major purposes: to influence buyer choices and encourage certain “point of purchase” transactions, and to provide guidance in a safe and efficient manner, as required by local regulatory authorities (such as the fire marshall) and federal law, particularly the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). 28 NorthBaybiz

Biz

The value of signage There’s an old axiom that the three keys to successfully selecting real estate are “location, location, location.” In much the same vein, the three keys to successful selection and development of commercial properties are visibility, accessibility and parking. An effective on-premise sign is a critical component of visibility and should receive the same careful attention as each of the other components. Without a properly designed and placed on-premise business sign, a commercial site cannot function at its full economic potential. An effective on-premise sign develops a memory for a location and the products or services available at the location; it reinforces a memory and extends recall of other advertising efforts; it attracts new customers by prompting first-time or impulse visits or purchases; and it modifies customary purchase decisions or habits. Changeable copy and temporary window signs are especially effective in encouraging variation from accustomed consumption patterns. Branding a site One measure of how effective or valuable an on-premise sign is to its site is demonstrated by how well it helps brand the site. A sign brands a location, just as a product label brands a product. If an attractive image isn’t communicated by the business’ sign, the business will rarely convey its true message—or get the clientele it seeks. Every site development and sign program strategy will benefit if the on-premise sign is made the focal point of the site. If a site is “signcentric,” it means the sign catches the customer’s attention and leads that person to the target business. A measurable positive effect on gross revenues should immediately result from signcentric site development. Modifying customary purchase habits One of the primary goals of advertising is to change purchase behaviors. Effective advertising can increase purchases within discrete segments of the market by introducing “intervening opportunities” along customary travel paths. This is especially true in highly discretionary areas, such as quick service foods and economy lodging, yet it holds true, also, for the business with more specialized products or services to offer. The right sign often prompts an unplanned stop or changes the customer’s mind once he or she is on the premises. Changeable copy and temporary window signs are especially effective in encouraging variation from accustomed consumption patterns. Because temporary or variable message signage is relatively inexpensive, the dollars generated by such signage usually represent pure profit. It’s estimated that 35 to 50 percent of the consumer population today shops outside their local area. Legible, conspicuous on-premise signage will assist in attracting a large percentage of these nonlocal and newcomer consumers. Further, an effective on-premise sign provides 24-hour exposure of its message to a large pool of potential customers at a fraction of the cost (when depreciated over several years) of other media. The lower the cost to obtain customer memory or topof-mind awareness, the higher the return on advertising dollars. ■ North Bay Business Resource Guide 2011

Minding Your Manners Online: Eight Lessons in Netiquette By Barry Libert he Internet is a big, limitless place where the rules of everyday life don’t always apply. You can be whomever you want to be and say whatever you want to say…right? Well actually, no, you can’t—or at least, you shouldn’t. Especially if your online presence is connected to your professional image. Just as there’s proper etiquette in the “real” world, there’s a right way and a wrong way to behave online. How you choose to communicate can have a very real impact on your relationships with employees, customers and partners. It might surprise you to hear that “Netiquette,” as online etiquette has been dubbed, is a serious enough topic to warrant several books by Peter Post, great-grandson of the legendary manners arbiter Emily Post. It might surprise you even more to learn that the basic rules of etiquette—even on a computer screen—have changed little since the original Post reigned supreme. Being considerate, respectful, and honest are crucial if you want today’s “social nation” to work for you and your business. But there’s a little more to Netiquette than that. Increasingly, the line between our personal and professional lives is becoming blurred, and information posted online can easily make the jump from one to the other. When used wisely, social media really can help you build high-quality professional relationships that will pay off for both parties offline. Following are eight etiquette lessons that will help you successfully develop a community of supporters who will help your business relationships prosper.

T

Pretend you’re offline. If you wouldn’t say it offline, don’t say it online. Many people behave as though what’s said online won’t have the same ramifications as it would in “real time.” If you believe that’s true, just talk to someone who’s been fired for a post. A basic rule of thumb is this: If you wouldn’t say it at work or at the gym or in the middle of a dinner party, don’t do it online. Remember, it’s not all about you. While your family and close friends might be interested in just about every opinion and perspective you have to offer, the general public might not be. It’s important to engage others by providing information, ideas and products they’ll find helpful. People want to read about topics that will enhance their lives, businesses and knowledge, so provide them with information, tools and tips on subjects that interest them. Don’t ignore spelling and grammar. Always bear in mind that what you write and how you write it is a reflection of who you are and what you care about. Think about it: Why would a potential employer want to hire someone who couldn’t be bothered to check spelling and punctuation in his or her résumé? Similarly, if a business demonstrates carelessness when communicating online, it could very well lead potential clients to wonder if that’s the level of sophistication and attention to detail the company demonstrates in all of its work. Don’t hide behind social media. Words still matter as much online as they do in real time—and they stick around longer. When possible, avoid using social media as an North Bay Business Resource Guide 2011

easy out when you’re facing a tough conversation or want to spout off an annoyance. If you have something to say—and criticism is allowed and may even be warranted at times—say it with respect; and before you send it, be sure it’s something you’ll be willing to stand by in a week. On the flip side, don’t worry that one nasty online comment from a disgruntled customer will ruin your business. How you handle it may make all the difference. Leave the sensational to someone else. When it comes to social media, it’s best to be honest and stick to the truth. Rumors and sensational posts may send readers flocking to you at first, but dishonesty and irresponsible behavior will ultimately come back to haunt you. Yes, in the heat of the moment, that sensational comment might seem like a good idea…but you might regret clicking “send” before all is said and done. It’s better to wait an hour—or maybe even a day—before launching your message. Take control of yourself. Managing yourself smarter is important to your career as well as to your personal life. Everyone is tempted to cut corners or to gratuitously vent from time to time, but when you choose not to do those things online, you’re setting a good example for others from within your organization. Remember that if you do choose to post an ill-advised update, for example, you’ll be the one taking the rap for it. Consider yourself a brand, and act accordingly. It really isn’t far-fetched to say that what you do online can impact your company’s brand, so bear in mind how you want others to perceive you and your organization—and let that influence your online presence. Remember that sharing can be your most powerful tool since it gives people something to relate to and comment on, but sharing too much or sharing inappropriately can be equally destructive. Blog, but mind your manners. There are things to watch out for with blogs that aren’t really dangers with status updates and shorter information posts. Foremost is plagiarism—be very careful that you aren’t using someone else’s words or images without proper acknowledgement. Also, pay attention to the input you’re getting from your readers’ comments—sometimes longer blog posts spark more in-depth discussions than shorter updates. Oh—and don’t forget to have fun! By following these basic rules, you’ll be one step closer to generating the results you seek: a more positive work environment, attaining and providing real value to your customers and a better brand for your company and yourself.

North Bay Business Resource Guide 2011


Hiring a General Contractor By Keenan Klinger rofessional home improvement projects can correct cosmetic or structural problems with your home, improve its general appearance and dramatically increase your enjoyment of your home and property. These projects can also increase the value of your home, which is likely one of your most important assets. On the other hand, these projects are often large expenditures, can restrict the use of certain parts of your home and are subject to complications and delays (ranging from supply shortages to inclement weather). Choosing the right contractor is often the most critical step in any professional home improvement project. A good contractor will understand your specific needs (including your budget), communicate clearly how he or she will address your needs and have a reputation for delivering results as promised. To find the right contractor, take the following steps. Identify reputable contractors in your area that specialize in the type of services you need. A local directory of home contractors is a good place to start to identify local contractors, read reviews and see photos of their work. Select at least two to three contractors to evaluate more closely. Verify the following information:

P

• Valid and current licenses for all work requiring a license; • Valid and current Certificate of Insurance (including liability and workers’ compensation); • Permanent business location and local telephone number; • Good standing with local building or trade associations; • Good standing with the Better Business Bureau; and • No major red flags on the credit report such as recent bankruptcies. • Check references. Ask the contractors for the names, phone numbers and addresses of previous customers. Contact the customers and ask them the following questions about their experience with the contractor: • How satisfied are you with the work? • Was the work completed on time and on budget? • How did the contractor deal with any problems? • If it was an external project (windows, fencing, siding), can you drive by to see the results? Estimates and quotes Estimates from different contractors can vary widely depending on the quality and type of materials used, installation method and scope of work. Pay careful attention when comparing bids from competing providers. Speak with two to three providers to get a range of service levels and prices; get a written estimate including the total price, the terms of payment, estimated time to complete the project and a list of specific materials that will be used (including brand names, styles, colors, grades or model numbers); and ask the provider to break out costs in terms of materials and labor, if appropriate, or into relevant units to make comparisons between providers easier (for example: total installed cost per window). Contracts It’s a good idea to have a written contract for any home improvement project. The contract will specify exactly what work is to be performed, what materials will be used and the cost of the project. You may want to have an attorney review any contract before signing. Both parties should North Bay Business Resource Guide 2011

sign the agreement, then you should keep a copy of the agreement for your records and maintain your records in a safe place—even after the project is completed. If there are any changes or additions to the project, put them in writing, date and initial the document and have both the contractor and you sign the document. Keep a copy of all written changes along with the original contract. Make sure the contract includes the following: • Company name, address, telephone number, license number and the name of the sales representative; • Specifications of the job including total price, terms of payment, materials to be used (including brand names, styles, colors, grades or model numbers) and any technical drawings or schematics; • Start date and estimated time to complete, providing for any reason able delays. You may be able to include penalties for significant time overruns that are within the contractor’s control, however the provider may then seek a reward for finishing ahead of schedule; • A clause indicating it’s the contractor’s responsibility to obtain all permits before beginning work; • Any warranties covering the work and/or materials. Some states have minimum warranties that contractors must honor on all home improvements; • Payment terms; • Agreement to clean up and properly dispose of all waste; and • Credits for significant amounts of unused materials (contractors can often reuse or return materials to manufacturers). Financing and payments Several financing options are available, so select the option that works best for your situation. Structure a payment plan that gives the contractor the money needed to get the project started, then set up a payment schedule. Payments are typically due after completion for smaller projects. For larger projects, agree to make a series of payments after the provider achieves certain milestones or after inspections are passed. Deposits are customary for some projects. A deposit may be required so the contractor can buy materials for the job or cover other startup expenses. Final payment should be made upon completion of the work as agreed to in the contract. Inspect the work to make sure it meets your satisfaction and make sure the contractor cleans up the work area and properly disposes of any waste. Finally, always ask for a receipt regardless of the method of payment. Make payments by check if possible—the longer the “paper trail,” the more evidence there is to support your payments in case any questions should arise. Resolving problems Sometimes you may not see eye to eye with your contractor. If you do have a problem, the best approach is to directly address it with the contractor and to try to resolve it without bringing in outside parties. If you can’t, you can file a complaint with the state licensing agency or department of commerce, or file a complaint with your local Better Business Bureau or relevant trade association. And if all else fails, you can seek judgment in a court of law. But hopefully, if you’ve done your homework and followed the steps outlined here, your project will be a success. ■ NorthBaybiz

The Science of Building Performance By David Leff uilding green is supposed to be the way each of us can do our part to reduce carbon emissions and slow global warming. However, in many ways, we’ve been distracted by “green” materials and are doing less than we think to solve the problem. Many products and materials used in home building are called green, and many services and trades related to home building now have green components. Often, these products are low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and contribute to better air quality in the home, or have a high-recycled content and reduce the amount of waste going into landfills. Solar hot water and photovoltaic (PV) systems reduce the use of fossil fuels and help slow global warming. All of these goods and practices do make a difference. But the fact is, no house is really green unless it’s designed and built (or remodeled) to reduce the amount of energy it uses. The use of green materials and installation of solar energy systems are important and necessary, but unless a building is properly insulated—with as few air leaks as possible, correctly sized and oriented high-quality windows, and a properly sized and installed heating and cooling system—it will

B

home the most is the “low-hanging fruit,” meaning those things that are the easiest and least expensive to do. Seal air leaks Every electrical or plumbing penetration through the floor, into the crawlspace or through the ceiling into the attic is a potential air leak. Sealing the often-oversized holes around the wires and pipes with caulk or expanding foam is an important first step. Remove old insulation If the insulation in the attic is old or poorly installed, it’s often easier to remove the old insulation (which creates easier access for air sealing) and install new, blown-in cellulose insulation. Older recessed light fixtures and ceiling fans weren’t designed to be covered with insulation, so the ceiling insulation is held back from the fixtures, causing a large hole in their surrounding insulation envelope. When the attic insulation is replaced or upgraded, it’s a good time to replace these old fixtures with airtight, insulation contact (AT-IC) fixtures.

“No house is really green unless it’s designed and built (or remodeled) to reduce the amount of energy it uses.” continue to unnecessarily contribute to the overheating of the planet. The fairly new field of building science, which studies the energy efficiency and environmental quality of buildings, is emerging from university classrooms and U.S. Department of Energy testing facilities into the mainstream world of home building and remodeling. Building science has developed procedures and testing equipment that let a trained energy auditor go through a home and, in about four hours, locate air leaks in the building envelope, find uninsulated or poorly insulated surfaces, test for duct leaks in the heating and cooling system, test the air quality for excessive moisture and carbon monoxide, look for moisture problems around the home and produce a report with recommendations for improving energy efficiency and environmental quality. An audit will also usually include a “blower door test” (in which the interior of the home is depressurized and smoke sticks or infrared cameras are used to locate air leaks and inadequately insulated walls and ceilings) and a duct blaster to test for leakage in the heating ducts. In many cases, especially with older homes, the amount of air leaking through poorly insulated walls, ceilings and tiny penetrations around windows, doors, light fixtures, electrical outlets and pipes can be equivalent to a more than one-square-foot hole in an exterior wall. The duct system that carries heated or cooled air through a house often leaks at least 25 percent of its air. Not only does such a leak waste energy, but it can create an air pressure imbalance that may cause unheated and unfiltered air to be sucked into the house from a crawlspace or attic. The good news is, other than the installation of PV or solar hot water systems, what improves the energy efficiency of an existing North Bay Business Resource Guide 2011

Don’t forget floors and walls Uninsulated floors can be insulated from the crawlspace, and uninsulated walls can be filled with cellulose insulation, which is blown into the wall cavities through small holes in the siding or through the interior drywall. Install a vapor barrier This is a cost effective and simple way to keep ground moisture from entering the house through leaks in the subfloor. Replace old, single-glazed windows This will help reduce heat loss in the winter and will keep the house cooler in the summer, but the return on that initial investment usually isn’t as high as with air sealing or insulation upgrades. Tackle these problems first, and then, if it’s time to replace an old furnace, the new one won’t need to be as large, or if a PV or solar hot water system is installed, fewer panels will be needed, because the home’s energy loads will be so much less. If you’re planning to remodel your home anyway, be sure to include energy upgrades in your plans, and be sure your contractor is aware of this building-performance approach to remodeling. ■ David Leff is president of Leff Construction (www.leffconstruction.com), a Sonoma County design/build remodeling company.

Understanding Hydropower ydropower is using water to power machinery or make electricity. Water constantly moves through a vast global cycle, evaporating from lakes and oceans, forming clouds, precipitating as rain or snow, then flowing back down to the ocean. The energy of this water cycle, which is driven by the sun, can be tapped to produce electricity or for mechanical tasks like grinding grain. Hydropower uses a fuel—water—that’s not reduced or used up in the process. Because the water cycle is an endless, constantly recharging system, hydropower is considered a renewable energy. When flowing water is captured and turned into electricity, it’s called hydroelectric power or hydropower. There are several types of hydroelectric facilities; they’re all powered by the kinetic energy of flowing water as it moves downstream. Turbines and generators convert the energy into electricity, which is then fed into the electrical grid to be used in homes, businesses and by industry.

H

Small hydropower. Although definitions vary, DOE defines small hydropower as facilities that have a capacity of 100 kilowatts to 30 megawatts. Micro hydropower. A micro hydropower plant has a capacity of up to 100 kilowatts. A small or micro-hydroelectric power system can produce enough electricity for a home, farm, ranch or village. Hydropower terms This glossary of terms defines the components and concepts that make up hydro turbines and hydropower plants.

Sizes of hydroelectric power plants Facilities range in size from large power plants that supply many consumers with electricity to small and micro plants that individuals operate for their own energy needs or to sell power to utilities.

Alternating current (AC): Electric current that reverses direction many times per second. Ancillary services: Operations provided by hydroelectric plants that ensure stable electricity delivery and optimize transmission system efficiency. Cavitation: Noise or vibration causing damage to the turbine blades as a result of bubbles that form in the water as it goes through the turbine. This causes a loss in capacity, head loss, efficiency loss and the cavity or bubble collapses when they pass into higher regions of pressure. Direct current (DC): Electric current that flows in one direction. Draft tube: A water conduit, which can be straight or curved depending upon the turbine installation, that maintains a column of water from the turbine outlet and the downstream water level. Efficiency: A percentage obtained by dividing the actual power or energy by the theoretical power or energy. It represents how well the hydropower plant converts the energy of the water into electrical energy. Head: Vertical change in elevation, expressed in either feet or meters, between the headwater level and the tailwater level. Flow: Volume of water, expressed as cubic feet or cubic meters per second, passing a point in a given amount of time. Headwater: The water level above the powerhouse. Low head: Head of 66 feet or less. Penstock: A closed conduit or pipe for conducting water to the powerhouse. Runner: The rotating part of the turbine that converts the energy of falling water into mechanical energy. Scroll case: A spiral-shaped steel intake guiding the flow into the wicket gates located just prior to the turbine. Small hydro: Projects that produce 30 megawatts or less. Tailrace: The channel that carries water away from a dam. Tailwater: The water downstream of the powerhouse. Ultra low head: Head of 10 feet or less. Wicket gates: Adjustable elements that control the flow of water to the turbine passage.

Large hydropower. Although definitions vary, DOE defines large hydropower as facilities that have a capacity of more than 30 megawatts.

Types of hydropower plants There are three types of hydropower facilities: impoundment, diversion and pumped storage. Some hydropower plants use dams and some do not. Many dams were built for other purposes and hydropower was added later. In the United States, there are about 80,000 dams, of which only 2,400 produce power. The other dams are for recreation, stock/farm ponds, flood control, water supply and irrigation. Hydropower plants range in size from small systems for a home or village to large projects producing electricity for utilities. The sizes of hydropower plants follow. Impoundment. The most common type of hydroelectric power plant is an impoundment facility. An impoundment facility, typically a large hydropower system, uses a dam to store river water in a reservoir. Water released from the reservoir flows through a turbine, spinning it. This, in turn, activates a generator to produce electricity. The water may be released either to meet changing electricity needs or to maintain a constant reservoir level. Diversion. A diversion, sometimes called run-of-river, facility channels a portion of a river through a canal or penstock. It may not require the use of a dam. Pumped storage. When the demand for electricity is low, a pumped storage facility stores energy by pumping water from a lower reservoir to an upper reservoir. During periods of high electrical demand, the water is released back to the lower reservoir to generate electricity.

“They really want to help small businesses grow.”

We switched to Exchange Bank because they were right here in Sonoma where we live and where we grew up. It’s great because they’re small business oriented and really want to share in our growth. Our previous bank was

Elaine Bell

headed in a different direction, and Exchange Bank

Elaine Bell Catering, Sonoma and Napa

was there to answer our call. Exchange Bank is hugely supportive of our company and very proactive. They handle everything for us: administer our 401(k) plan, equipment loans, lines of credit, building loan, even our credit card processing. This is why we trust Exchange Bank — they were small enough to provide very personal service and foster a one-on-one relationship; but big enough to handle our growth. They have always been completely supportive, like a true partnership.

Variable Pay Is the Solution By Don Helt ost things in life are variable: the economy, politics, financial results, sports franchises and even employee and organizational performance. So why do we seem to insist on fixed pay systems? Why, as a business organization, do we hamstring ourselves with a fixed liability and, in fact, one that typically amounts to the largest single cost of doing business? Just look at Uncle Sam and how well he’s doing with virtually fixed entitlement programs that amount to the largest segment of government spending in a receding economy. And closer to home, almost every business and public organization with largely fixed pay systems has had to reduce or delay pay increases or, in many cases, reduce pay levels and reduce employment levels in response to difficult economic conditions. When organizations rely on fixed compensation plans, they have no flexibility in a dynamic economy. In down times, compensation expense gets out of their control and so the only recourse is to reduce headcount— and that’s not a solution.

M

market position and what, in general, we’re getting in return. • Know what our near term business plans and goals are and how we’re going to measure them. • Explore what type or mix of individual, group or overall organizationwide plans would be most appropriate for the size, composition, location and so forth of the workforce. • Outline how the efforts of individuals, groups and/or the overall organization link to the organization’s goals. • Establish a budget in line with the goals outlined here, and a method for funding to include both additional successes (for example, profitability) as well as perhaps redeploying funds from the existing compensation program. • Track, measure and communicate more openly and more regularly, both employee and organization performance (including financial plans and results) with our workforce.

What is variable pay? Variable or incentive pay plans aren’t new and have been used extensively in both sales and executive pay programs, and to a limited extent in the general workforce. The concepts are simple enough: Pay flows with the fortunes of the organization. You set mutually understandable goals for some period, you objectively measure the degree of success and you pay according to a preset pay schedule that’s mutually understood. And you pay as close to the success as practical. And just to differentiate, bonus plans don’t link preset goals to a preset payout and thus have no incentive value. The bad: Variable pay systems require more work to establish and maintain. They’re not particularly egalitarian and are certainly not favored by bureaucrats, union sympathizers or below-average performers. Further, they upset certainty, introduce an element of risk into the pay equation for employees and tend to foster discrimination based on performance among participants. The good: Variable pay systems are more relevant and more reflective of the real world. They tend to focus and stimulate performance against stated organizational targets. Pay and related costs fluctuate with organization and employee performance, and thus enable organizations to more closely balance performance and the cost of doing business. In short, you pay for success. Variable pay programs designed to reward, motivate and retain talent have grown in use over time. According to a 2008/2009 U.S. Compensation Planning Survey by Mercer, Inc., as many as 50 percent of organizations have some sort of variable pay plan for their general workforce. So what would we have to do if we wanted to establish some sort of variable pay system for the general workforce?

To optimize the success of the plan, we’d have to communicate and engage the workforce in the broadest way possible in the formulation of the goals that are under their control. No small set of tasks, but here is the payoff:

In general, we’d have to: • Understand the extent of the compensation we’re paying now, our 84 NorthBaybiz

• For the organization, more control over pay expense, with the size of the expense better matched to the organization’s success. • For the workforce, a clearer line of sight between what they accomplish and what they’re paid. • A better understanding by both management and the workforce of what is important to the success of the organization. Variable pay plans move the organization’s focus away from well intended pay plans that may be merit- or pay-for-performance oriented, but which do not typically incent performance nor result in marked differences in performance and pay among employees. Variable pay does incent performance and does provide for differences in pay based on such performance. Moreover, it’s a more flexible compensation system that enables increased focus, participation and engagement on the part of the general workforce in the business goals and success of the organization. ■

Don Helt’s professional background includes industry experience as director and VP of human resources for both public and private corporations in a variety of industries, and as the principal in a human resource consulting practice serving mid and large market clients. Current client projects include workforce, executive and sales compensation; technology solutions for human resources departments; and strategic organizational planning and development. He’s served as founder and chairperson for the Bay Area Compensation Association and as board member for the Northern California Human Resources Association.

tools Build a Stronger Business Through SBA Lending By Jason Ehn Senior SBA Loan Officer, Redwood Credit Union

upporting local small businesses can ensure a faster recovery out of the current economic downturn, and success for small local businesses also spells job growth in the during a period of economic expansion. By taking advantage of SBA lending programs, local small business owners can benefit and grow, and help to further a speedy economic recovery.

S

Many small businesses may not qualify for conventional business financing, but 95% of businesses in the United States meet the government’s definition of a small business and are eligible for SBA financing. SBA loans allow lending institutions to bridge the gap and service these entrepreneurs who do not yet qualify for conventional financing. The 7a Loan Program The SBA’s 7a loan program is the agency’s most widely utilized product. Rather than a direct loan from the SBA to the small business, the 7a program allows the SBA to provide lending institutions with a guaranty of up to 75% of the loan amount (85% for loans of $150,000 or less). Other distinctive features of 7a loans include: • Loan amounts ranging from $25,000 to $2 million • Fully amortizing loan terms (no balloon payments) over 5 to 25 years, depending on the business use of the loan proceeds • Flexibility to be used for any business purpose including acquisition of owner-user real estate, acquisition of a business, working capital, and equipment • The benefit of the guaranty allows the lending institution to finance projects that would not typically qualify for conventional financing. The 504 Loan Program SBA 504 loans are specifically used for financing fixed assets such as owner-user real estate and equipment. 504 loans require only 10% down from the small business owner for the purchase of a home for their business. The loan structure differs North Bay Business Resource Guide 2011

from that of a 7a as typically a financial institution will finance 50% of the project while a Certified Development Company (CDC) assists in financing the other 40% through the sale of SBA-guaranteed securities on Wall Street. This unique structure provides the business owner the opportunity to own a property and have a long-term fixed rate – all with only 10% down as opposed to the typical 25% down payment required by most lending institutions. Benefiting from SBA Entrepreneurship in the Bay Area is a powerful force, especially following the economic challenges of the past two years. Successful small businesses provide valuable goods and services, and more importantly, breathe life into our local economy by providing employment opportunities, allowing their prosperity to trickle down throughout the community. SBA loans are excellent vehicles for assisting local entrepreneurs with the capital required to grow and prosper. As you prepare for the future of your business, consult a local lender first and put the power of your community to work.

Jason Ehn is the Senior SBA Loan Officer at Redwood Credit Union (RCU). RCU offers a full line of financial services for small businesses, including SBA lending as well as business lines of credit, term loans, commercial real estate loans, checking and deposit accounts, cash management, merchant and payroll services, insurance, investments and more.

Are You Making A Profit? rofit measures success. The following includes questions and comments that can help you analyze them and determine if you have the kind of record-keeping system you need. They’re meant to point to areas where further study might be profitable.

P

Knowyour

Biz

15. Have you compared your profits (absolute and ratios) with those of your competitors?

Analysis of revenues and expenses 1. Have you chosen an appropriate period for profit determination? This is generally a 12-month period. But not always January to December (depending on if the business is seasonal). 2. Have you determined your total revenues for the accounting period? What’s your gross revenue? How much of your product or service is returned or credited? What are the discounts you give to your customers and employees? What are your net sales (gross sales minus returns and rejects plus discounts)? What’s your income from other sources, such as interest on bank deposits, dividends from securities and rent on property leased to others (non-operating income)? What’s your total revenue (net sales plus non-operating income)? 3. What are your total expenses? Common ones are: Cost of goods sold (beginning inventory plus purchases minus ending inventory); wages and salaries (include what you’d pay someone else to do your job); rent; utilities (electricity, gas, telephone, water); delivery expenses; insurance; advertising and promotion; maintenance; depreciation; taxes and licenses; interest; bad debts and professional assistance (accountant, attorney and so forth). There are many other types of expenses, and each must be recorded and deducted from your revenues before you know your profit.

Trend of profit 16. Have you analyzed the direction of your profits? To do a trend analysis, performance indicators (absolute amounts or ratios) should be computed for several time periods (yearly for several years, for example) and the results considered side-by-side. You can then evaluate your performance, see the direction it’s taking and make forecasts. 17. Does your firm sell more than one major product line or provide several distinct services? If so, a separate profit and ratio analysis of each could show which items are most and least profitable, and which are slow- or fast-moving.

Financial ratios A financial ratio is an expression of the relationship between two items selected from the income statement or balance sheet. Ratio analysis helps you evaluate the weak and strong points in your financial and managerial performance.

Buying and inventory system 20. Do you have a buying and inventory system? 21. Do you keep records on the quality, service, price and promptness of delivery? 22. Have you analyzed the advantages and disadvantages of buying from several—or a minimum number of—suppliers? 23. Have you analyzed the advantages and disadvantages of buying through cooperatives or other systems? 24. Do you know how long it usually takes to receive each order? How much cushion do you need to maintain normal sales while you wait for orders to arrive? 25. Has your business ever suffered because you were out of stock? 26. Do you know the optimum order quantity for each item? 27. Do you (or can you) take advantage of quantity discounts for large-size single purchases? 28. Do you know your costs of ordering and carrying inventory? The more frequently you buy, the higher your average ordering costs (clerical costs, postage, telephone), and the lower the average carrying costs (storage, loss through pilferage, obsolescence). The larger the quantity per order, the lower the average ordering cost and the higher the carrying costs. A balance is needed to reach the minimum cost overall. 29. Do you keep records of inventory for each item? They should be kept current as items are added to or removed.

4. What’s your current financial ratio? Your current assets divided by current debts tells if you have enough cash to pay creditors. The higher the ratio, the better. Cash, receivables, marketable securities and inventory are assets. Be realistic in valuing receivables and inventory. Current liabilities are those that must be paid in one year. 5. What’s your quick ratio? Also known as the acid-test ratio, it’s found by dividing quick assets (current assets minus inventory) by current liabilities. This test doesn’t include inventory. It tells if the business could meet its current obligations with quickly convertible assets should sales revenue suddenly cease. 6. What’s your total debt to net worth ratio? Total debt, divided by net worth, then multiplied by 100 is a measure of how a company can meet its total obligation from equity. The lower the ratio, the better the credit rating. 7. What’s your average collection period? You find this by dividing accounts receivable by daily credit sales (annual credit sales divided by 360). This shows how long it takes to get cash after making a credit sale. 8. What’s your ratio of net sales to total assets? Net sales divided by total assets measures the efficiency with which you’re using your assets. 9. What’s your operating profit to net sales ratio? Divide operating profit by net sales and multiply by 100. Don’t include interest income and interest expense. 10. What’s your net profit to total assets ratio? This ratio (divide net profit by total assets and multiply by 100) is often called return on investment (ROI). It focuses on your overall profitability. ROI is the most important measure of a firm’s financial position. 11. Do you know your net profit to net worth ratio? Divide net profit by net worth and multiply by 100. This ratio provides information on your operations resources productivity. Sufficiency of profit The following questions are designed to help you measure profit. Several organizations publish financial ratios, including Dun & Bradstreet, the Accounting Corporation of America, Bank of America and some trade associations. Published ratios are only averages; you want to be better than average. 12. Have you compared your profit with your profit goals? 13. Are your goals too high or too low? 14. Have you compared your profits (absolute and ratios) with those made in the last one to three years? North Bay Business Resource Guide 2011

Records 18. Do you have a general journal and/or special journals, such as one for cash receipts and disbursements? 19. Do you prepare a sales report or analysis? Do you have sales goals by product, department and accounting period (month, quarter, year)? Are your goals reasonable and being met? If not, list the likely reasons. The list might include general business climate, competition, pricing, advertising, sales promotion, credit policies and the like. Once you’ve identified the apparent causes, you can take steps to increase sales (and profits).

Other financial records 30. Do you have an accounts payable ledger? This ledger will show what, whom and why you owe, and will help you make your payments on schedule. 31. Do you have an accounts receivables ledger? This ledger will show who owes you money, why, how much, and how long it’s been outstanding. 32. Do you have a cash receipts journal? 33. Do you have a cash payments journal? 34. Do you prepare an income (profit and loss or P&L) statement and a balance sheet?These are statements about the condition of your firm at a specific time and show the income, expenses, assets and liabilities of the firm. They’re absolutely essential. 35. Do you prepare a budget? This “record in advance” projects future inflows and outflows. It’s usually prepared for a single year, generally to correspond with the accounting year, then broken down into quarterly and monthly projections. Once reasonable projections are made for every important product line or department, you can set targets for employees to meet for sales and expenses. You must plan to assure a profit. And you must prepare a budget to plan. ■ Source: BizMove.com; Small Business Knowledge Base

Knowyour Profitable Succession Planning

Biz

By James A. Andersen, CPA

pressing need for all private business owners today is to develop a plan to exit their business in an effective and profitable manner. Whether the goal is to sell for maximum profit, transition the company to key employees, or minimize estate and wealth transfer costs by gifting the business to various family members, a business plan needs to be developed that addresses all of the possibilities. A successful business succession/exit plan addresses all of the issues that can maximize value in a sales transaction, ensure a smooth transition in an employee transfer situation and provide the necessary stop gaps for transfer tax minimization of a family business. The business succession and exit planning process requires a team of professionals quarterbacked by a CPA/financial adviser. Other critical team members include attorneys (probably multiple for dealing with buy/sell and estate issues); an experienced insurance professional with expertise in life, health and disability issues; and either a banking or investment advisory firm with expertise in wealth management and family trust issues. Failure to create a well-defined business succession/exit plan virtually guarantees business owners can: • Exit their companies as a result of pressure from outside circumstances, not as a result of their own desires; • Exit their companies on a timetable that’s forced on them instead of one that meets their needs; • Undervalue their companies and leave hard-earned wealth on the table; • Pay too much in taxes (income taxes on a business sale and wealth transfer taxes in family-owned business situations); • Lose control over the process by being reactive and therefore limit exit options; • Fail to realize all their business and personal goals; • Suffer unnecessary psychological stress; and • Watch a lifetime of work disintegrate as a result of poor business continuity planning.

A

On the flip side, a well-designed and implemented exit plan lets business owners: • Control how and when they exit; • Maximize company value in good times and bad; • Minimize—and possibly eliminate—income and wealth transfer taxes; • Generate a number of strategic exit options; • Reduce stress • Ensure continuity of the business. Multiple surveys have shown that the number one reason small, closely held businesses fail—or only partially succeed—is lack of planning. The scary thing is, most business owners spend more time planning a family vacation than when and how to exit their business. Just as most of us don’t want to talk about our own deaths, business owners don’t want to talk about the end of their business. Plus, exit planning is a time-consuming and complex process, and very few resources exist to guide a business owner through it. Most owners are swamped with day-to-day activities and don’t understand the tremendous return on investment exit planning can provide. As a result, they favor the status quo and do nothing. The combination of an intense need for exit planning and an equally North Bay Business Resource Guide 2011

intense resistance to create such a plan can cause powerful tension in a business owner’s mind. The important thing to remember is, whenever change is imminent and unavoidable, the adviser who can help clients make that change smoothly and painlessly becomes invaluable. So how do you get started? The process must begin with two pieces of information: the business’ value and the owner’s motivation. The three most common business transfer motivations are: • To sell the business at the highest possible value and receive the maximum return on investment; • To transfer the operation to key employees while possibly trying to stay with the business in a reduced capacity to help facilitate the transition process; and • To keep the business in the family by transferring it at the lowest possible price to help minimize income and wealth transfer costs. The first step in selling the business would be to get it valued. What happens if it’s determined the business doesn’t possess significant value? The financial advisers then need to perform a SWOT analysis (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) and encourage the business owner to make the changes necessary to maximize value. The next step is deal structure: Should this be an asset sale or a stock sale? Should an installment sale be considered to spread the tax consequences over an extended period of time? What are the additional risks of an installment sale? Transferring the business to key employees raises a whole separate set of issues. If it’s a professional service business, such as a CPA firm, the plan must include a structured buy-in that will “incentivise” new partners coming in but also provide a means for retirement for older partners. What’s a reasonable way to buy-out retiring partners while not burying the remaining partners with debt that’s difficult to service? And an operating business, such as a manufacturing company needs to decide if a SARS (stock appreciation rights) plan or an ESOP (employee stock ownership plan) makes sense. Should it consider recapitalizing the business by issuing more stock and then redeeming the founding shareholders’ equity? Finally, if the goal is to transfer the business to family members at the lowest possible income and wealth transfer cost, the business value should be as low as possible. Beyond that, how does gifting work? What about sales of minority shares on an installment basis? How do minority and marketability discounts come into play in either a gifting or minority sale situation? Ineffective or nonexistent business succession planning can potentially mean the death of a significant family asset. Proper planning is essential to not only preserve the business entity but also avoid discord and misunderstanding among family members. Getting together with your financial and legal advisers to plan and draft an appropriate exit strategy is a good starting point. ■

INVESTOR INTELLIGENCE SERIES: 1 OF 3

Who’s your fiduciary?

IT’S GETTING A LOT MORE DIFFICULT TO DETERMINE WHO’S ON YOUR SIDE. A lot of people want to help plan and execute your investments. These people have different levels of experience and expertise. Different licenses and accreditations. And fundamentally different ways of being compensated for their services. Once you understand the distinctions, you’re going to find it a lot easier to interview firms and find yourself one you can trust. At the root of this discussion is the concept of “fiduciary.” There are various definitions out there. But the basic idea is this: a fiduciary is someone who has the highest possible ethical obligation to offer financial advice that is in your best interest. Your best interest trumps every other consideration. To help shed a light on this topic, we’ve prepared an “executive brief” on the fiduciary relationship. It breaks down in practical terms who’s a fiduciary, who isn’t, why it’s so important, and why a lot of people would prefer the definition of fiduciary remain loose rather than precise. You’ll find it at www.privateocean.com/fiduciary

Private Ocean co-founder and CEO Richard Stone was co-author of the financial planning industry’s first code of ethics in 1974. He is a recognized expert on fiduciary responsibility.

When growth happens. The market grows in short, intense bursts. The goal is to be there when it happens. By Theo Gallier, MBA

Most people know that historically the stock market grows dramatically over time. Fewer people understand that it’s not a smooth curve. Market growth is a series of intermittent sharp spikes, virtually impossible to predict or correlate to political or economic events. Here’s a vivid illustration of this phenomenon. Between January 1990 and June 2010, there were 5,168 trading days. If you missed the 10 trading days with the highest upside during that period, you would have lost out on nearly half of the market’s gains.* Here are some practical lessons to derive.

Market timing is a high-stakes gamble, not an investment strategy. The image of the clairvoyant market timer is a myth. Some of the world’s largest funds have enlisted teams of PhDs to try to time market movement—with very limited success. The “10 days” example shows how much you can lose by jumping in and out of the market.

Think “long-term” and “low-cost.” A long-term, low-cost orientation for investing significantly increases your chances of capturing market gains. It brings with it two major advantages. First, by trading less you reduce internal brokerage commissions at mutual funds—unpublished costs that can take a big bite out of your earnings. Second, “active” funds have high management fees and operating costs that reflect a high volume of trading and research. Examples of asset classes that have historically worked well over the long term are small-cap and value stocks and, on the fixed income side, intermediate bonds. Holding these investments at low cost increases your chances of success.

Discipline is critical. The market’s volatility provokes strong reactions in investors. A good advisor applies strict discipline, so you don’t let the emotion and psychology override intelligent decision-making. Discipline keeps you from jumping in and out of the market,

North Bay Business Resource Guide 2011

decreasing the chances you’ll miss these tremendously important days which historically account for nearly half of the market’s growth. It includes automatic rebalancing among asset classes—in effect, buying low and selling high.

Don’t feed the Wall Street cash cow. Wall Street is rife with conflicts of interest. Psychologically and emotionally, it’s designed to induce you to trade a lot. This generates commissions and management fees for Wall Street firms. It has no correlation to growing the value of your assets. Mostly, it mutes growth by adding costs. To avoid conflicts of interest, identify an advisor or wealth manager who operates as your fiduciary. A fiduciary has the highest legal and ethical obligation to put your interests first, regardless of the impact on his or her compensation. A fiduciary isn’t paid on a commission basis. This removes the incentive to recommend active or unnecessary trading. It keeps the focus where it should be—on developing and executing a strategy for long-term growth.

In summary Over a 20-year period, missing just 10 high-growth days in the market can cost you nearly half the overall market growth. To increase your chances of capturing growth, think long-term and low-cost. Avoid Wall Street, with its inducement to trade actively. Find a wealth manager who’s a fiduciary. And commit to a disciplined program that keeps emotion in check, rebalances automatically and stops you from jumping in and out of the market.

Knowyour

Biz What to Expect from Your Wealth Adviser in Today’s Challenging Times By Henry Pilger and Joe Delaney

e’re certainly experiencing challenging times in the financial markets around the world. Undoubtedly, they’re causing investors varying levels of stress and anxiety as a result. As an upshot of these challenges, there’s never been a better time to review and re-engage in the execution of your wealth plan. Here’s an analogy. Have you ever left on a trip to an unfamiliar area without getting directions? That’s when you find yourself in that stressful situation where you’re lost, the kids are hungry and your spouse is providing navigation input and saying “I told you so” in the same breath. It’s very stressful—and downright dangerous. Had you taken the time to plan the trip, all of it would be taken in stride because you had a plan in place. The same goes for wealth management. Reviewing your wealth plan now can help you adjust expectations. You’ll be able to make changes that can benefit you and your family over the long term, and uncover opportunities to transfer wealth under favorable conditions created by the current market conditions. In these rough economic times, a top priority for everyone should be to revisit their wealth plan with their adviser to determine if it’s comprehensive enough. It can’t be based on wishful thinking or unrealistic assumptions. A comprehensive plan is one that considers three essential areas.

W

• Cash flow projections. Do them for now and in the future as determined by accurate modeling. • Protection. You’ll need to protect yourself and your assets as you move through different phases of life. • Legacy planning. It’s important to create the legacy you’d like to leave at the time or your death. Most notably, your comprehensive wealth plan should let you identify and document important goals and objectives, which will then serve as a guide to help meet and exceed them. It’s a good idea to review your plan and make adjustments for changes in your personal circumstances on a regular basis. It’s during times like these, when the value of your assets have changed, that you may be able to use assets that have lost value as part of a gifting strategy. An outdated plan based on assumptions that are no longer valid can be worse than having no plan at all. North Bay Business Resource Guide 2011

As an example, the plan might make adjustments for the transition of a closely held business to the next generation and a corresponding change in cash flow as a result. Or it might require more complex advanced planning strategies to ensure legacy goals are ultimately achieved. In these turbulent times, switching to cash may feel safe, but risks remain. By running for the comfort of safe and insured, investors with a time horizon beyond a few years may be doing real damage to their long-term finances. History has shown that in the last 10 market downturns, when the recovery begins (and there’s always a recovery), it yields about a 30 to 40 percent upside in the following three or four months. Another consideration is to make sure your heirs are equipped to handle the type of market turmoil we’re experiencing today. Including your heirs in discussions around money potentially sets the stage for a more successful transfer of wealth. One of the biggest concerns many people have is what money will do to their family. At the same time, it’s a subject that’s very hard for most people to talk about, often because discussions around the topic tend to be uncomfortable. But the fact remains that families who are the most successful in passing on wealth through multiple generations are those that have regular meetings about wealth and the responsibilities that go with it. Tough economic times remind all of us of the importance of involving and educating future generations so they’re better equipped to handle financial decisions going forward. Educating others in your family could be as simple as a joint meeting with parents, children and a financial adviser to discuss investing and preparing a budget. Or it might be as involved as coordinating a multigenerational family meeting to establish and work on family values and a vision statement that can often include philanthropic planning. Now’s the time to take action and seize control of your finances. We recommend you step back and assess where you are and where you want to go. That requires taking a thorough look at the wealth plan you have in place. If you don’t have an updated, comprehensive plan, it’s important to create one. Market circumstances have not only created new realities, but also some compelling opportunities you can use to your advantage. ■

The New World of Conferences Moves Your Business Forward

Knowyour

Biz

By David Giannetto oney is tight right now. CEOs and managers are less willing to spend on conferences that provide them with little return on investment (ROI). But there’s a new style of conference that gives all attendees their money’s worth—and then some. As a speaker at many traditional conferences, I didn’t feel I was able to truly help attendees significantly improve the performance of their organizations. Because of Byron Mignanelli’s experience putting together traditional-style conferences and the power of his new media firm, GSMI, I knew he would be the perfect person to help me bring my idea of a new style of conference to fruition. Together, we came up with the Create Conference Series. These “next generation” conferences set themselves apart from their forebears by helping participants take the theory they learn during the event and apply it in a practical sense to their own organizations. Instead of providing a little information and multiple perspectives on a wide variety of business topics, which can often confuse attendees, the new conferences provide in-depth information on one topic: how to create sustainable superior performance within your own organization. The conference topic is broken down into three different tracks that provide attendees with the answers, tools and techniques that do more than just educate them. This provides an all-around more profitable experience for attendees. Here are just a few of the benefits.

M

You’ll leave with tangible deliverables and takeaways. Many times, businesspeople attend conferences and are very excited about what they’ve learned. But when they get back to the office, they aren’t quite sure how to incorporate everything into their daily operations. And it’s even more difficult for them to make those who didn’t attend the conference understand what they learned and why it’s important to implement changes. The biggest and most important difference between the next generation of conferences and conferences of old is that now, providing tangible deliverables and takeaways for attendees is a priority. Attendees actually create the first deliverables for change at their organizations while still at the conference. They analyze their own organizations against a common conference framework, and use each session to bring them one step closer to taking their performance to a new level. When they return to their offices, they can jump right in and take the next step. Managers and owners can now know that the money they spent on attending a conference was money well spent. Attendees learn from the best (and also each other). Any conference worth its salt is packed with some of the most well-known and accomplished people specializing in the conference’s topic. And all of those same industry practitioners, management theorists, experienced implementers and thought leaders will be a part of the next generation of conferences. The difference is in how attendees get to interact with them. In addition to making keynote speeches and leading sessions, these industry experts will take part in a political-style debate that makes facilitated panel discussions look like a thing of the past. During North Bay Business Resource Guide 2011

these conversations, attendees get to hear from one another while picking the brains of some of the best in the business in a casual and conversational environment. You’ll hear how other companies have done it. Sometimes in the business world, it’s easier to follow someone else’s lead rather than blaze your own trail. It’s that reasoning that’s made company case studies such an important part of the next generation of conferences. Delegates learn from leaders who have actually traveled down this path within their own organizations. These speakers show attendees that there are many ways to approach solving problems within business today, and that there’s no one magic bullet—as long as you have the right foundation. The conference trains your employees for you. Instead of simply educating attendees, new conferences focus on helping attendees use what they’re learning to create change in their own organizations. Conference delegates are essentially being trained on how their area of the business fits into the overall picture, regardless of whether they deal with organizational development, training and development, corporate finance or any other area of your business. ‘Networking’ is taken to a higher level. Sure, every conference provides an opportunity to network. Throw a bunch of businesspeople together from the same industry, and they’re bound to get acquainted. But not every conference begins that process before you even arrive at the facility. The new conference business model incorporates an electronic meeting system that gives attendees the opportunity to optin during registration. Then two weeks prior to the event, conference organizers will send out meeting information so attendees can start developing their meeting schedule before they arrive. That way, when you get to the conference, you’ll already have a great working relationship with fellow attendees. And you’ll build on those relationships during the sessions you attend as you all work together to bring change to your individual organizations. Not only does this new style of conference represent the next generation in educating and training managers, owners and employees, it also represents a new and improved way of making changes in your business. They provide superior value to attendees by truly helping them connect the dots in a complicated, cash-strapped business world. We’re setting a new standard for business conferences, and any company that joins in is sure to start down the road to transformation and unprecedented financial success. ■

Choosing the Right Business Insurance Agent and Insurance here are a lot of options for business insurance. To ensure you get the right kind, it’s a smart move to ask for assistance from a business insurance agent. Don’t choose someone who’s simply selling business insurance or promoting certain companies. Instead, choose someone who can assist you all the way from choosing the right coverage to making claims. In general, business insurance is a long process, and getting the right agent is a critical component. There are two types of business insurance agents. One is independent and one is exclusive to a particular company. The independent agent is a multiple carrier agent who can determine which providers can best suit your needs. Independent agents aren’t affiliated with one particular insurance company, but instead work with many. Both types are expected to be well-versed about the insurance industry, how insurance works, and types of insurance that suit your needs. But independent agents can give you options on different insurance providers, while exclusive agents present you with what their affiliated company offers. If you’re looking for more options in terms of several insurance providers and different rates, you can go for the independent agent. But if you’ve done your own research and want to know more about the company you chose, you’ll have to talk to its exclusive agent. There are many ways to look for business insurance agents. One way is to look online. When you do so, be sure to check their customer comments and reviews, so you can get a feel for their reliability and level of professionalism. While online, you can also immediately get business insurance quotes from various providers and compare the rates. Aside from online searching, you can also look for your business insurance provider by your local directory (such as this resource guide) or through referrals from your personal contacts.

T

Types of insurance Once you’ve chosen a provider, it will be time to consider your specific insurance needs. Without proper protection, misfortunes such as the death of a partner or key employee, embezzlement, a lawsuit, or a natural disaster could spell the end of a thriving operation. Ranging from indispensable workers’ compensation insurance to the relatively obscure executive kidnapping coverage, insurance is available for nearly any business risk. Considering the multitude of available options, business owners must carefully weigh whether the cost of certain premiums will justify the coverage for a given risk. General liability. Many business owners buy general liability or umbrella liability insurance to cover legal hassles due to negligence claims. These help protect against payments as the result of bodily injury or property damage, medical expenses, the cost of defending lawsuits, and settlement bonds or judgments required during an appeal procedure.

retail a product may be liable for its safety. Additionally, every service rendered may be capable of personal injury or property damage. Businesses are considered liable for negligence, breach of an express or implied warranty, defective products and defective warnings or instructions. Home-based business insurance. Contrary to popular belief, homeowners’ insurance policies don’t generally cover home-based business losses. Commonly needed insurance areas for home-based businesses include business property, professional liability, personal and advertising injury, loss of business data, crime and theft, and disability. Internet business insurance. Web-based businesses may wish to look into specialized insurance that covers liability for damage done by hackers and viruses. In addition, e-insurance often covers specialized online activities, including lawsuits resulting from meta tag abuse, banner advertising or electronic copyright infringement. Workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation insurance pays for employees’ medical expenses and missed wages if injured while working. The amount of insurance employers must carry, rate of payment, and what types of employees must be carried varies. Criminal insurance. No matter how tight security is in your workplace, theft and malicious damage are always possibilities. While the dangers associated with hacking, vandalism and general theft are obvious, employee embezzlement is more common than most business owners think. Criminal insurance and employee bonds can provide protection against losses in most criminal areas. Business interruption insurance. Some businesses may wish to acquire insurance that covers losses during natural disasters, fires and other catastrophes that may cause the operation to shut down for a significant amount of time. Key person insurance. In addition to a business continuation plan that outlines how the company will maintain operations if a key person dies, falls ill or leaves, some companies may wish to buy key person insurance. This type of coverage is usually life insurance that names the corporation as a beneficiary if an essential person dies or is disabled. Malpractice insurance. Some licensed professionals need protection against payments as the result of bodily injury or property damage, medical expenses, the cost of defending lawsuits, investigations and settlements, and bonds or judgments required during an appeal procedure. ■ Source: U.S. Small Business Administration (for types of insurance section)

Insuring Your Business Against a Catastrophe ould your business survive a major emergency? Businesses that recover quickly have planned in advance. They know what needs to be done as soon as a disaster strikes and, most important, they’ve purchased the right insurance to finance their recovery. It’s important to develop and maintain an adequate recovery plan to protect yourself against legal liability for the losses that might result from a disaster. Set up an emergency response plan and train employees how to carry it out. Make sure employees know whom to notify about the disaster and what measures to take to preserve life and limit property losses. These should include whom to contact for medical assistance, how to call the fire department and evacuate the building and any special precautions that should be taken before leaving the premises. Different types of disasters may call for different kinds of measures. Consider the things you may need initially during the emergency. Do you need a back-up source of power? Do you have a back-up communications system? If you’re likely to have cash-flow problems, check into the availability of loans and extensions of credit. Keep on

include a detailed review of your insurance policies to ensure there are no gaps in coverage. Property Insurance. Is your property—the building and its contents—insured for current replacement prices? Don’t forget to insure any improvements you’ve made to the property, such as new storage cabinets and carpets. There may be limitations on what the policy will pay for certain items. If you need higher amounts, discuss this with your agent. Typical property insurance policies exclude coverage for flood damage. If you’re located in a flood zone (check with your local municipality or bank about this), you’ll probably have to buy a separate policy from the National Flood Insurance Program. Business Interruption Insurance. After every disaster, some businesses are forced to close their doors because they didn’t plan for the costs of a disruption to their operations. Business interruption insurance compensates for income lost when you have to vacate the prem-

For a business, the costs of a disaster can extend beyond the physical damage to the premises, equipment, furniture and other business property. hand a first-aid kit, a supply of flashlights, batteries, candles and candleholders and matches. Are you likely to need food and water? Write out each step of the plan and assign responsibilities to employees in clear and simple language. If you employ workers whose native language is not English, assign someone to make sure these workers understand what they’re required to do. Distribute copies of the plan to each employee. Practice the procedures set out in the emergency response plan with regular, scheduled drills. Compile a list of important phone numbers and addresses: Make sure you can get in touch with key people after the disaster. The list should include local and state emergency management agencies, major clients, contractors, suppliers, realtors, financial institutions, insurance agents and insurance company claim representatives, and your employees and company officials. Keep copies at home and at a more remote location (in case the disaster is widespread). Decide on a communications strategy to prevent loss of clients/customers. Whether you decide to wait out the reconstruction period or relocate to temporary premises, current clients and those who use your services or products regularly should know how to get in touch with you, and when and where you expect to reopen for business. Otherwise, many will assume that you’ll be out of action for a long time. Review your insurance program For a business, the costs of a disaster can extend beyond the physical damage to the premises, equipment, furniture and other business property. There’s the potential loss of income while the premises are unusable. In addition, if you can’t afford to close up shop during the repair period, there’s the extra expense of keeping the business going from a temporary location.

ises due to disaster-related damage (you must be covered for the physical damage that caused the disruption). It covers the profits a business would have earned, based on its own financial records, had the disaster not occurred. It also pays for the operating expenses that continue, such as payroll, even though business activities have come to a temporary halt. Make sure the policy limits are sufficient to cover your company for more than just a few days. After a major disaster, it can take much longer than many people anticipate to get a business back on track. Extra Expense Insurance. For some businesses, the cost of relocating can be greater than the revenue loss. Extra expense insurance reimburses you for what you spend, over and above your normal operating expenses, to avoid having to shut down during the restoration period. Review on a regular basis all the components of your disaster recovery strategy—fire safety and emergency preparedness measures, business continuation and building repair plans, and your insurance program. Communicate changes to key employees. If you need help in identifying hazards and assessing risk or more information on how to develop a disaster recovery plan, call your insurance company and ask for loss control services. ■

Understanding the California Finance Lenders Law By Catrine Brown hen tempted to make a loan to carry a business through to better times, it’s important to understand lending laws. For example, will the lender be subject to regulation as a finance lender in California? It very well may, particularly if the lender has made more than one loan during the last 12 months. This is true even if the lender is located outside of California, and even if the previous loans have been made to other businesses or even to its own employees. This is because California law seeks to regulate anyone engaged in the business of making loans through the California Finance Lenders Law (CFLL). This article will focus on the CFLL as it applies to commercial loans (loans not for personal, family or household purposes).

W

Certain exceptions and potential traps Several entities aren’t required to be licensed under the CFLL, including banks and savings and loan associations, credit unions, mortgage lenders, licensed check cashers, licensed pawn brokers or those licensed under the deferred deposit transaction law. Notably absent from the list of exempt entities are hedge funds that make loans as part of their portfolio. As a result, a hedge fund that regularly makes loans may be subject to the CFLL. There’s also no exemption for businesses making loans to their employees. The Department of Corporations has indicated that a business making loans to its employees may be considered to be a finance lender, subject to regulation, unless the loans are interest-free with no profit or gain by the employer. Bridge loans made by venture capital companies to operating companies also aren’t exempt from the CFLL. The bridge loan, venture capital company and the operating company each have to meet the requirements detailed in the CFLL. To qualify for an exemption, the bridge loan cannot have a maturity that exceeds one year, even though bridge loans are often structured to mature after that 12-month timeframe. The bridge loan also must be made in connection with (or in contemplation of) an equity investment in the operating company. A loan may be exempt from the CFLL if it’s secured by real property and either made or arranged by a licensed real estate broker. Since the licensed real estate broker can arrange the loan, the broker doesn’t need to be the lender or borrower for this exemption to apply, so long as the broker arranges the loan and is actively involved in the negotiation of the transaction. One advantage to being a licensed finance lender is that the license applies to the business as a whole and there’s no need to license individual employees, which is in contrast to the requirements of a real estate broker. If a lender makes only one loan in any 12-month period, then the lender falls under the safe harbor of the CFLL. Anytime more than one loan is made, even if they’re different types of loans to different types of borrowers, then the safe harbor is lost and the lender may be subject to regulation under the CFLL. The safe harbor only applies to commercial loans. Out-of-state lenders may be subject to the CFLL even if the loan documents are governed by another state’s laws. If the negotiation, credit investigation or repayment of the loan takes place in California or the loan is to a California borrower, then there’s a risk that the lender is subject to the CFLL. Borrowers cannot waive any provision of the CFLL. North Bay Business Resource Guide 2011

Obtaining a California Finance Lenders License If no exemption applies, then a lender will need to apply for a California Finance Lenders License, which can be a time-consuming administrative ordeal. The lender must prepare and submit an application form, provide financial statements, obtain a surety bond for $25,000 and have net worth of at least $25,000. The executive officers, board members, 10 percent shareholders and any persons responsible for the applicant’s lending activities must also provide fingerprints and complete a questionnaire. They may not have a criminal history or a history of noncompliance with governmental regulations. Obligations of a California Finance Lender Once licensed, a lender must maintain its books and records on any loan for three years after the last payment of the loan has been made, file an annual report to the Department of Corporations, pay an annual fee, maintain the $25,000 surety bond as well as maintain a net worth of at least $25,000. The license must be posted in a conspicuous location, and the lender has to notify the Department of Corporations of certain events such as a change of location, change of name or any change in the persons listed on the application. Before circulating any advertisements, a licensed lender has to receive approval from the California Commissioner of Corporations. The advertisements may not be false, misleading or deceptive. The licensed lender then needs to maintain a file of any of its advertisements for at least 90 days. Note that, to the extent a lender makes consumer or commercial loans of less than $5,000, much more stringent obligations apply under the CFLL. Usury Exemption One advantage to being licensed under the CFLL is that a licensed lender is exempt from the usury restrictions under the California constitution. Penalties Violating the CFLL can result in penalties of $2,500 for each violation, imprisonment (for not more than one year)—or both—and willful violations can also be punished by a fine of $10,000 in addition to imprisonment (for not more than one year) or both. Bottom line Businesses often make commercial loans, whether to their employees or to other struggling businesses. Any time a business is considering making a loan, it should review the CFLL to see whether an exemption exists. If it’s a one-time loan, then the business can rely on the safe harbor of no more than one loan in a 12-month period. However, where the safe harbor and other exemptions don’t apply, then the business may need to apply for a license under the CFLL. ■

tools Rebuilding Your Workforce: Tips for Reducing Liability Sponsored by Dickenson, Peatman & Fogarty or the past three years, most North Bay employers placed all new hiring on an unofficial “hold.” Many cut salaries, welcomed employee attrition and experienced one or more rounds of layoffs, reducing workforces to the bare minimum while riding out the recession. Now, an increasing number of employers are optimistic that the worst may finally have passed. As companies emerge from this period of hunkering down, a welcome positive has emerged: A talented and motivated workforce is eager to return to work. As recently as three years ago, employers were sometimes caught in bidding wars for top talent. But now, the opposite is true. An Internet job posting will often bring dozens (if not hundreds) of applications. With this ready talent pool, employers have the opportunity to rebuild their workforces in a smart and measured manner. Here are two important steps all employers should take while reshaping their workforce.

F

Understand the position Before advertising for any position, an employer should first identify what, exactly, the job entails. The most effective way to accomplish this is to draft a job description with the help of those who’ll directly supervise the employee. A job description need not be overly complicated to be effective. However, it should accurately reflect the employer’s expectations as well as the duties and skills required for its performance. For instance, if the position requires an employee to lift objects weighing up to 40 pounds on a regular basis, it should say so. Similarly, if a position requires frequent interaction with Spanish-speaking clients, fluent or conversational Spanish skills could be an essential job function. These types of skills should never be listed “just in case.” Make it specific to the job. The legal benefits of a well-articulated job description are myriad. First, by identifying the actual duties of the position, employers are more likely to identify applicants with appropriate skill sets. Applicants well-suited to the position are less likely to injure themselves, require extensive training or experience early job dissatisfaction—all of which can lead to decreased productivity and/or increased legal costs. In short, a well-written job description will help an employer identify applicants who are actually qualified and appropriate for the available position. A well-written job description can also help the employer comply with state and federal laws, because some employment laws look to the written job description to determine whether leave requests or modified job responsibilities are reasonable or required. Similarly, the job description can help determine whether an employee or applicant can perform the position’s essential job functions. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) published a guideline for employers to use when considering the issue. It reads, “[E]ssential functions are the basic job duties that an employee must be able to perform, with or without reasonable accommodation.” To determine if a function is essential, consider: • whether the reason the position exists is to perform that function; • the number of other employees available to perform the function or among whom the performance of the function can be distributed; and North Bay Business Resource Guide 2011

• the degree of expertise or skill required to perform the function. In the event of a legal dispute, your judgment as to which func tions are essential, along with an accurately written job description prepared before advertising or interviewing for a job, will be considered by the EEOC as evidence of “essential functions.” Be careful, though. If a written job description fails to identify the essential duties, requirements and functions of a position, state and federal agencies will disregard it. The lesson is simple: Take the time before posting a position to determine exactly what that position entails. Then put it down in writing. Ask the right questions After identifying the skills it needs in an applicant, an employer must plan the interview process carefully. One consequence of the larger applicant pool has been an increase in the amount of unselected (and unqualified) applicants (that is, those not chosen to interview for the position). Over the past two years, a handful of high-profile cases have demonstrated that unselected applicants can still state a case against the employer. As a starting point, every employer should familiarize itself with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing’s three-page fact sheet titled “Employment Inquiries: What Can Employers Ask Applicants and Employees?” The fact sheet is available at http://www.dfeh.ca.gov/. This fact sheet explains that employers are prohibited from making “non-job-related inquiries of applicants or employees, either verbally or through the use of an application form, that express, directly or indirectly a limitation, specification or discrimination as to race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, marital status, sex, age or sexual orientation [among other protected categories].” More important, however, it suggests strategies for avoiding these common topics through appropriate questioning. For example, it notes that questions regarding an applicant’s “nationality, lineage, ancestry, national origin, descent or parentage of applicant, applicant’s spouse, parent or relative” are prohibited inquiries into an applicant’s national origin. An employer is, however, permitted to inquire what “languages [the] applicant reads, speaks or writes if use of language other than English is relevant to the job for which applicant is applying.” Similarly, an employer isn’t permitted to inquire if an applicant observes any particular religious days. It can, however, tell job applicants “of regular days, hours or shifts to be worked.” By reviewing this fact sheet prior to an interview, managers and supervisors can both focus their questions and avoid problem areas of questioning. Equally important is asking questions designed to discover whether an applicant has the appropriate skills for the position. After identifying a job’s essential functions beforehand, the employer should take time to go through the same exercise with its interview questions. By taking these simple yet important steps before posting a job opening, employers can avoid mistakes and rebuild their workforce in a thoughtful—and legally defensible—manner. ■

Understanding Legal Fees ttorney fees can cost a pretty penny. They depend on what type of case you have and how much time an attorney will spend. There are several different types of fee arrangements. Attorney fees are usually calculated without including court costs and filing fees that are usually paid upfront by the client. Always ask potential attorneys to explain their fees and billing practices prior to engaging their services.

A

What’s the basis for a legal fee? Attorney fees are generally a matter of agreement between the client and the attorney. There are no recommended fee schedules. While fees vary, the basic ingredient is the amount of time spent on a particular case. Clients are often unaware that the advice given to them in a few minutes or a few pages of a document prepared for them are products of much time and effort by the attorney and often by others in his or her office. How do lawyers compute their fees? There are four usual methods of calculating legal fees: Hourly fee arrangements; contingency fee arrangements; flat fee arrangements; and percentage fee arrangements. Hourly fee arrangements and charges depend on case circumstances and lawyer experience. Under this arrangement, the client is generally responsible for the out-of-pocket expenses (filing fees, transcripts, sheriff's fees) as well as for the time spent performing the legal work (meetings, research, drafting documents, phone calls). Contingency fee arrangements are used primarily in personal injury and collection cases. They’re not allowed in criminal or divorce matters. The lawyer receives no fee unless money is recovered for the client. If money is recovered, the lawyer receives an agreed-upon percentage of the recovery, generally ranging from 25 to 45 percent. The percentage often depends upon the amount of work anticipated, the probability of recovery of witness fees, and the complexity of the issues involved. If there’s an appeal, the percentage can be higher. Contingency fees can be compiled prior to the conclusion of the matter, and the client may be responsible for all out-of-pocket expenses such as filing fees and depositions. If an attorney is dismissed by the client prior to the conclusion of the matter, the client may be responsible for payment of a reasonable fee for services rendered by the attorney. All contingency fee agreements must be in writing and signed by both the attorney and the client. In flat fee arrangements, the attorney will render a specific legal service to the client for a fixed sum of money. Criminal defense matters or the preparation of a simple will are often the subject of a flat fee arrangement. If there are unexpected complications, it’s sometimes necessary to modify such an arrangement.

Percentage fee arrangements are sometimes used in the administration of an estate or in the selling or purchasing of a home. The fee would then be a fixed percentage of the estate or the value of the property being transferred. When should you discuss fees? The lawyer and the client should discuss the cost of the legal services at the initial meeting. The lawyer may not be able to forecast the exact amount of the time and effort required, but should be able to give the client an estimate based upon the information provided and the lawyer's past experience. The client should not hesitate to raise the issue of legal fees at any time with his or her attorney. The client has a right to a detailed billing showing the lawyer's time and efforts in those instances where the fee is based upon an hourly rate. Who’s responsible for the fees? The client must pay the fees and expenses. In some cases that go to court, the judge may award a partial or full fee to be paid by the opposing side. This does not release the client from the obligation to pay the attorney. When is the fee paid? Most cases require a retainer fee or deposit to apply to the lawyer's expenses or future charges. Clients should expect to pay when they retain an attorney. The attorney will generally bill on a monthly basis and the client is expected to remain current. A contingency fee case is billed upon completion of the case, except for expenses incurred. Can legal fees be limited? Consider a written fee agreement during the initial meeting. The client should ensure that he or she is totally familiar with the basis on which the fees will be calculated. If the lawyer's work is concluded and the fees required are less than the amount of the retainer, the balance will be refunded. Being fully prepared with documents and information at the initial meeting can often reduce the time an attorney must spend seeking that information. The client should be as brief as possible in all communications and refrain from frequent phone calls for which he or she will be billed. The client should always communicate openly and honestly with the attorney. Failure to do so can often result in added expenses. Can I fire my attorney? Remember that you’re the boss when it comes to your attorney. If you’re not satisfied with the work, you’re entitled to terminate his or her services; however, you must pay for services rendered up to the date of termination. ■ Source: U.S. Small Business Administration

The Practical Benefits of Customized Office Furniture By Margaret Winfrey

Y

ou may be surprised at the level of style and sophistication in office furniture these days. Gone are the days of plain desks and functional chairs. Today, there’s a wealth of office furniture available that combines practicality with appearance and functionality with comfort. Perhaps the reason office furniture has been lifted from the reasonably grim and stark offices of a few decades ago is that companies and businesses have realized investing in better quality furniture can create an office space that results in a much higher level of productivity and efficiency—not to mention the impression customers and prospects get immediately when they enter the office. To begin with, good quality office space with comfortable, attractive and practical furnishings is likely to boost staff morale—a significant factor with any successful company. By boosting staff morale, you’ll not only give employees the impetus to work harder and produce a high standard of work, but you’ll also maintain a low staff turnover with the benefits of experience and familiarity with the company that a contented staff provides. High-quality office furniture and decor makes it clear that your company or business values its employees, which is likely to encourage staff to remain with you rather than looking for a better job and more comfortable working conditions elsewhere. Not only that, but with high-quality offices, you’ll almost certainly find you can attract and recruit a higher caliber of employee, and this can significantly improve your business. Your employees are the lifeblood of the company, and by ensuring they feel valued and cared for with good quality, comfortable and attractive furniture, you’ll go a long way toward achieving this. It’s also the case that properly designed office furniture takes into account many of the issues that can occur with some of the cheaper, less well-planned office furniture alternatives. For example, it’s increasingly likely that most office desks will incorporate a computer, including a monitor, keyboard and mouse. It’s equally likely it’ll be necessary to have an area for staff members to organize their paperwork, make notes and write letters. 148 NorthBaybiz

Some of the cheaper, poorly designed office furniture can sometimes be little more than planks of wood bolted together, with little consideration of daily practical use or even safety. Take cabling as one common example. In many cases, the monitor, keyboard and mouse will have cables that trail across the desk and down the back. If desks are placed back to back, this can result in unsightly gaps down which rubbish and dust can fall, increasing the risk of overheating within the computers themselves. Better quality desks and office furniture will take this into account and provide ways in which cabling can be minimized, often with solutions built into the desk itself. These can vary from well-placed holes in the desk to built-in trunking. In some cases, cabling can actually drop down the inside of one of the desk’s legs, making it virtually invisible. One of the most important elements of office furniture is the chair, which can cause injuries and health problems. They also contribute to employee discomfort and an inability to work to the best of their abilities. The best chairs allow for the greatest degree of adaptability and flexibility, including height adjustments, back angle adjustments, lumbar support and so forth. By being able to adapt the chair to the individual person, you can eliminate (or at least significantly reduce) many of the risks inherent in working within an office environment. Much of this is regulated by health and safety law, and risk assessments of the ergonomics of the workstation will likely be necessary. This is a much easier task if the office furniture is designed to make adjustments easy for each individual. There’s also the storage aspect to consider, and here again, designer office furniture will take a business’ needs into account and ensure suitable facilities are either built into the desk area, or incorporated elsewhere. Above all, well-designed office furniture should be practical for daily use, comfortable for all employees regardless of size or shape, and eliminate as many of the small but irritating problems associated with poorly made designs. ■

Performance Review 2.0: Eight Ways to Overhaul Your System By Quint Studer erformance reviews are necessary. And when they’re done properly, people actually like them. Employees want to know how they’re doing. They want to connect with their managers. And reviews give leaders an opportunity to measure performance results and make rewards or changes accordingly. That being said, many companies could stand to overhaul their performance review system. Changing your approach will not only make them more effective, it also can have a positive impact on company culture. Here are a few guidelines:

P

Think of them as a process, not an event. Let’s put the traditional performance review in context. That annual encounter is expected to yield a productive meeting of the minds, followed by growth and progress on the employee’s part. It rarely works that way. Instead, if you lay the groundwork for performance reviews all year long by practicing regular rounding for outcomes, you can make personal connections, recognize success, find out what’s going well and determine where improvements are needed. Rounding means asking specific questions in the right sequence: Do you have the tools and equipment you need to do the job? What’s going well? What isn’t? Always listen and write down the answers and then follow up— if you don’t do this last part, it negates all your hard work. When you build your reviews on a foundation of rounding, they become meaningful. They’re the culmination of lots of mini-meetings. Neither party is surprised by what the other party says. Hold them four times a year. That’s right, a quarterly performance review. If this sounds like a lot of work, it is. But it’s also far more effective than the annual review, which too often reflects an employee’s performance during the previous month leading up to the meeting. What if that month turns out to be an employee’s one bad month in an otherwise good year? Quarterly reviews are a far more accurate reflection of the employee’s overall performance. Link reviews to organizational goals. Surprisingly few leaders structure employee evaluations around concrete, companywide goals. When employees know they’re going to be graded on the progress they made toward goals the entire company shares, they will alter their behavior. But don’t just impose these goals. Get employee input up front. This helps employees “connect the dots” regarding the impact they have and makes them feel like an important part of the whole. Make the criteria as objective as possible. What do words like communication, organization and professionalism really mean? Perceptions vary wildly. What you can’t argue with is hard numbers. The medical field is notorious for this—Which department has the highest patient satisfaction scores? Which one has the lowest employee turnover?—and there’s no reason other industries can’t take the same approach. Strive to make reviews conversations, not confrontations. I endorse the 90-day plan, a coaching tool designed to manage dialog between a leader 152 NorthBaybiz

and a supervisor on progress toward goals and to put specific actions in place. While 90-day plans tend to involve the management team, the “coaching” aspect should hold true for all employees. The best leaders draw employees out, solicit their ideas for improvement and offer concrete suggestions on how to better pursue the goals you’ve set together. Avoid falling back on we/theyism. Let’s be honest. Most employees come into performance reviews with the hope of walking away with a pay increase. Leaders often have to disappoint them. And many of them fall prey to the “we/they” phenomenon—as in, “Well, Rick, I fought for your pay raise but you know those tightwads over in corporate.” Problem is, we/theyism has a divisive effect on company culture. Instead, make an effort to position the company as a united entity. It’s fine to say something like “Sales are down 11 percent and no one is getting raises. But we have a great team, we’re all working hard, and I’m confident we can turn things around.” Make sure all leaders are singing from the same choir book. Train your managers in how to do these new performance reviews before you roll out the initiative companywide. Otherwise, you’ll see inconsistent results in companywide goals. Use reviews as a springboard to move low performers up or out. What do you do when certain low-performing employees refuse to budge? What you don’t do is let them hang around year after year. When they’re tolerated in a company, they tend to pull middle performers down to their level. Worse, your high performers will get disgusted and leave. Get rid of your “bad apples,” and your middle performers will naturally start to emulate the behavior of your star employees. The reviews I’ve described let you quickly build a case against them. Admit it: Not having to endure the annual “performance review” charade of old would be a huge relief for all concerned. But the benefits reach far beyond the meetings themselves. It’s no exaggeration to say transforming your performance review system can transform your entire company. The way you motivate and reward employees is everything. When employees believe they’re treated fairly and are engaged in the company’s mission, when they’re coached toward meeting clearly stated goals, they’re going to put their hearts into their work. We’re talking about nothing less than changing the culture of your company. That’s a huge, major step toward long-term success. I’ve always said it and I still believe it: A great culture outperforms strategy every time. ■

Knowyour The Pulse of Business In the North Bay

Biz

By Liz Thach and William Silver lthough the Great Recession has left the North Bay economy battered, it hasn’t knocked it out. Business still happens, and even if profits are down, the actions being taken today are setting the stage for future prosperity. Students from Sonoma State University’s School of Business and Economics met with North Bay business leaders to ask questions regarding the North Bay’s business climate; this article highlights the major findings from that large research project.

A

Major challenges today When asked, “What’s the largest challenge facing your organization today?” the highest-rated theme among for-profit companies was the economy (32 percent); whereas nonprofit and government firms focused on funding (44 percent). These are likely opposite sides of the same problem. The second and third most important issues from for-profits included increasing competition (17 percent) and employees (16 percent). As one respondent stated, “We have many competitors who offer a lot of the same products. It’s a dog-eat-dog world.” In terms of employees, “It’s difficult to employ a good, dedicated professional staff,” responded one leader, while another stated, “The cost of labor, insurance and workers’ comp is growing faster than sales.” Nonprofit and government agencies added lack of societal support and interest (12 percent) and budget cuts (9 percent) as major challenges. “Getting people to donate,” is very difficult at this time, according to one leader; whereas another said, “With all the budget cuts, it’s a struggle to keep the program alive.” Major challenges in the next five years “What do you believe will be the largest challenge in the next five years?” was the next question for-profit leaders, whose answers led with expansion (12 percent). And though challenges to expansion were identified, the fact that there’s a strong desire to expand is a clear and positive trend. Other themes included adaptation (12 percent) and competition (12 percent). Adaptation included not only embracing new technologies but fostering an innovative corporate climate. Nonprofit and government agencies predicted that funding (35 percent) challenges would continue, as would budget cuts (11 percent). This is a common concern, because agencies depending on tax revenues and donations often have a longer recovery time than for-profit firms. Nine percent identify expansion as an issue—and, though a challenge, it’s also a forward move. Opportunities for the future Leaders were also asked, “What do you believe is the biggest opportunity for your organization?” The for-profits led with growth (43 percent) via expansion, diversification, increased market share and other methods. The second-highest theme was using technology (13 percent) as an opportunity to try new options and increasing marketing and promotions (11 percent). Leaders from nonprofit and government agencies were much more diversified in their responses, and actually identified 12 different themes, ranging from providing more education and awareness to focusing on efficiencies. They identified growth as the largest opportunity (23 percent), followed closely by doing more community outreach (17 percent) and recruiting more volunteers (13 percent). Making the North Bay thrive North Bay leaders were also asked to forecast the number of jobs their organizations will create in the next five years. For-profits projected an 154 NorthBaybiz

average 42 new employees per organization and nonprofit and government agencies projected an average of 24. Taken together, the organizations project hiring 8,688 new employees. Probably one of the most important questions posed was, “What can you do to make the vision of a thriving North Bay economy a reality?” Responses were inspiring in that for-profits identified community support at 25 percent, followed by local focus (14 percent) as the two most critical actions. Other important ideas, provided by nonprofit leaders, included an equal emphasis on providing exceptional customer service (11 percent) and expanding their businesses (11 percent). This was followed by a recommendation to continue providing quality products and services (9 percent) and to create more jobs (8 percent). Everyone agreed that promoting more community involvement (19 percent) is the most important action to help create a thriving North Bay community. Other ideas included a continued focus on the mission of their organization (16 percent), providing more community education (11 percent) and promoting more teamwork between nonprofits (8 percent). Job creation (6 percent) was also mentioned, as well as 11 other agency-specific themes. Reaching Goals So what can be done to move from our current economic malaise to this rosier future? We have three recommendations. First, continue investing in your business so you’ll be ready for the healthier climate. Focus on sales and marketing, new paths to growth, employee development and customer service. When budgeting, don’t spread scarce resources thinly by asking how much should be given to each activity. Instead, ask what should be funded fully and what you can cut out. Second, innovate to make your competition irrelevant and to find new ways to engage your customers and stakeholders. Consider the factors on which you compete, then decide which to eliminate, reduce, raise above industry standards or create anew. Third, develop a talent management plan. Attracting and retaining the best talent is still an issue and is projected to get worse. Research shows that pay and benefits may attract people, but the leadership of their boss is the top factor in retaining and engaging them. Too often, we hear there’s a talent shortage in the North Bay—that we don’t have enough professionals willing to make their career here. This isn’t a demographic issue. It’s a leadership challenge. Our research found at least 263 leaders in the North Bay taking this challenge head on. ■
