If You Are A Man You Need to Take Annual Leave Immediately! Managers often encourage employees to take annual leaves once a year. The effects of everyday tensions and stress-inducing elements can have a significant impact on one’s mental and physical capacity. This especially happens when a person goes months, or even a few years without taking a day off other than at the weekend(s). It is obvious that those two off days are never enough for anyone to completely unwind and relax. The managers work equally as hard as their subordinates throughout the year. Even if they are not hands-on with the projects, they are still required to make important decisions, attend meetings, and supervise their employees to make sure that they are on the right track. The performance of the employees is their responsibility. This requires a lot of mental contribution, which is extremely exhausting as well. Hence the managers also deserve, and should take, annual leave whenever they can. Reasons why managers don’t take leave.. The reason that the managers often do not like to take a day off is that they overload themselves with work. Everything is urgent for them and if not fulfilled could put the company or their job in great jeopardy. Whilst this is true for a lot of the projects that they handle, it does not have to be every project. Another reason that the managers are hesitant to take an off day, is because of the question of whether the employees will be able to take care of the work while they are gone. These questions should only have to be be asked when the employees are new to their position. If they have been trained and have spent several months in their role with the company then they are highly likely to stay on track without requiring any supervision, at least for a short while. Alternatively, the company may assign the team a temporary supervisor in their absence. This leads into the next reason why managers don’t like to take a vacation; they might be afraid that they can be bested by their temporary replacement. This is a valid reason to not take leave, but if the manager has always devoted a lot of their passion, energy, and time to the company then there is a chance that they are likely to stay. Reasons to take leave..

MONEY

When you work too hard for a long period of time, chances are that you can reach a severe burnout. This means that you are not able to mentally invest in your tasks even though you really want to. This happens because your mind has become tired and is asking for a good rest. Lack of sleep, poor appetite, and dehydration are also common contributors to this burnout. When you return from annual leave you will find that you are much more productive than you were before. The trick here is that your brain has had time to rewire itself thanks to the change of scenery and the shedding of stress. One of the biggest benefits of taking annual leave is that you will add more years to your life by reducing the risk of heart disease. Stress can cause more damaging effects to your health than you can imagine. If the prolonged stress of the current level keeps occurring then there are possible chances that you may become a victim of long-term health problems.

The Problems with How to De Overstaffing tends to occur when a business hires more employees than it can afford. This

is more common with small businesses, which may hire a lot of employees in an attempt to increase their revenue. However, unbeknownst to them, overstaffing can end up costing the business much more than they possibly might have anticipated. Labour is one of the priciest expenses that a company has to pay for. This results in a significant decrease in the company’s profit margin. It gets even worse when the company hires staff that need to be trained from scratch which affects the company’s ability to maintain its volume to meet the demands of the consumers. Rather than leaving the problem to fester, here are some ways you can identify that the office is overstaffed: You are employing far more than your competitors. Once a year it is important that you, as a business, conduct a thorough analysis of the staff. Though there can be some differences in the structure between you and your competitors, tthe majority of things are bound to be homogenous. Conduct a survey of your area and see what employing techniques your competitors use. If you find that you are, in fact, employing more people, then have a look at how your competitors are able to meet demands without such a high volume of staff.

h Overstaffing and eal With It Y

ou have a hard time retaining employees If there is not enough work to keep your employees busy, they will look to other sources to help them grow in their career. If they are made to wake up early every day to just laze around, then employees will become frustrated and bored and leave the office. When you overstaff, people are quick to get confused between who to report to and who is on what project, this then leads to a lot of communication lags which can make the company suffer. How to deal with overstaffing. Hire temporary labour. Rather than having too many full-time employees, businesses can hire a temp or part-time employees. The advantage of doing this is that temp and part-time employees will not demand as much salary as full-time and can offer flexibility. This can be specially implemented for lower level workers; the short span of time given to them will also lead them to speed up their work. Relocate departments or cross train employees. If employees in one department are sitting idle while others are overrun with work, then you can send more to the other department’s until they catch up. This is better than hiring new personnel for a department which is overworked, the employees from the other department will be familiar with the office and its rules so not much training will be needed. Cutting hours. You can reduce the number of hours the employees work each day, and their salaries accordingly. This will give you the option of not having to lay off anyone and reduce the cost of labour at the same time.

Choosing Between Second-hand or Brand-New Equipment I

t is often considered a good business habit to

do a fit-out at least once every few years. Many highly acclaimed companies such as Google and Facebook often do small or large scale fit outs at least once every few years. The reason why companies consider fit-outs an important investment is because it improves layout. A company may get inspired by a current trending office design or as the business starts booming they may find a lot of new clients and employees walking in. It is always important to make a solid first impression to facilitate a lasting brand image. Re-designing the layout may also increase the efficiency levels of the office. By getting good electronic equipment, furniture and/or kitchen appliance, you may help speed up the process of work. This will work best in the interest of human ergonomics. Motivate employees. The staff of the company is its backbone. They are often stuck in the office for more than 8 hours a day. This can be exhausting and discouraging if the office feels like a mundane grey coloured container. The staff also needs to feel as if it holds some importance in the eyes of management and so renovating the office or adding some things to it will help boost their morale. This would, in turn, improve their productivity which just adds to the long-term benefits for the company.

hat is a Fit-Out? Now that we have talked about the reason why companies should and do get fit-out, let us look

at what fit-outs really mean. When the owner of the business does a business fit-out it means that they are designing the business in a way that is suitable for the occupants and the business. This involves aspects such as kitchens, different furniture, carpets, blinds, painting, bathrooms, windows, etc. Though doing a fit-out for the company is a good idea, many companies are mostly torn between whether they should buy the items second hand or brand new. Buying second-hand might have a lot more benefits than you know. The first benefit, the one that stands out above the rest is the reduced price. Furniture that has been bought and used previously are bound to be sold at significantly lower price thanks to the concept of depreciation. Other than that, if your business is centred around eco-friendliness, then this again is a suitable option for you that you can even market. Buying second-hand will diminish the process of cutting down trees and using other natural resources, allowing you to set your name in the market as one of the ecofriendly companies. Another benefit is that you will save a lot more time than when you make the decision to buy new furniture. It often takes up to 15 days or more for the new furniture to arrive at the office since it is being custom made. The benefit of get new custom made fitouts is that you can get the components made exactly according to the ambiance you are going for. Buying new office furniture will let you employ the latest office design trend along with your own design preferences to make the perfect set of equipment for your office. Newer office equipment is also less prone to quick deterioration than second-hand furniture is.

HOW TO PROMOTE CHOOSING BETWEEN PAID ADVERTISING OR WORD-OF-MOUTH M

arketing is one of the most obvious and crucial aspects of any business. Without marketing your business will fail. It is marketing that will let your customers and other stakeholders know of your existence. Marketing sets the ball rolling for the company in the industry. During the initial stages of the business, marketing creates awareness, it later goes on to create a brand image and spreads the name of the company. This brand image is what helps associate the customers with the company. However, advertising can be much trickier than you think. Budgeting is at the core of any business promotion. It can be expensive or inexpensive depending on the size of the business and/or its objectives. A small business may spend less or more depending on the capital at hand or their revenue, if they have made any at that point. Some companies are known to spend only 1% of their overall budget on marketing, whereas other companies may spend as much as 50%. It is, however, suggested that companies hoping to make a moderate level impact should spend up to 5% and companies planning on making a high-level impact should spend at least 10%. Nonetheless, a lot of factors come to into play, such as the type of industry they are in, the level of competition, the type of product or service being promoted, how much revenue/capital they have at hand, and whether they are planning on growing and gaining market share or maintaining the awareness levels. There are several different means of marketing that the business can use, but we will talk about two of the major ones here: vnm magazine 010

Word-of-Mouth Word-Of-Mouth marketing is when the customer speaks to people they know about the company’s product/ service and would or would not recommend potential customers to give it a try. However, people often don’t just speak about a brand and its products, sometimes they can be “encouraged” by the company. This means that the business may sometimes offer incentives like discounts or a free product in exchange for a good review. They may even send a sample to people who are well-known for doing product reviews, such as vloggers and bloggers. This is one of the best ways of promoting one’s products since studies have shown that people are much more inclined to buy a product when it is recommended by someone who has tried it already. Paid advertising is most common. Companies who offer paid advertising often come with advanced tools which would help the client’s business reach the customers, bring awareness, and make sure that the company’s name stays in the minds of the customers for longer periods of time. Other than TV, radio, newspaper, and magazine, the social media has become a renowned platform for a lot of businesses to advertise on. SEO and Google ads have allowed for any company’s name to pop up in searches or on the sidebars regularly.The Search Engine Optimization enables articles that have the name of the company to be included in the top responses that show up after certain keywords are typed. Google now tracks the search session of the user and then posts an advertisement of products on the sidebars of the pages the users further visit.

It is a way for businesses to reach a massive audience, free of cost (in most cases), in less amount of time, and in very creative ways. It began with Facebook, and then slowly other social media platforms followed. You can say the companies now take more advantage of the social media than individuals themselves. Similarly, Snapchat has also had substantial growth since 2011. It is the newest of all the social media applications now boasting up to 173 million daily active users. As with all the other social media websites businesses have started to target this platform as well.

keep making payments to the warehouse where your now hat is Cashflow? Cashflow refers to keeping a record

of the money flowing in and out of the business under the label of income and expenditure. The cash inflow is from the customers and account receivables. Cash outflow is from the business when it pays for it expenses such as rent, raw materials, carriage inwards, carriage outwards, etc. When there is more money coming into your business, it means that you have a positive cash flow, your business is running at a surplus and can immediately pay off its debts or expenditures. If there is more money going out than coming in, then your business is running at a negative cash flow. When you rush to meet the rising demands of the customers you might gather a lot of materials beforehand, but demand can go down in an instant. When this happens, you will be left with stock that is present in high volume and not selling. You are then left to pay off the debts to your suppliers and also have to

obsolete products are stored. There will always be certain debtors who will ask for longer time between repayments. This will lead to you running out of cash soon, especially if the majority of your debtors insist on paying at a much later date. When you don’t keep track of your cash flow you often make the mistake of expanding quicker and farther than your reserves might actually allow. It is easy to get a little carried away and move to bigger locations or hire more staff when extra income comes in but you must keep in mind the fixed costs such as rent and salaries which you will have to pay even during times of low revenue. Stay on top of your cashflow, There are certain ways that you can manage your cashflow adequately, so you don’t drown in debt:


CASH FLOWS TO KEEP OUT OF TROUBLE? Manage cash flow regularly: There are a lot of different ways that cash might be flowing out, some in big amounts and some in smaller ones. Often, we are so focused on the bigger cash outflows that we fail to keep track of the smaller cash inflows that may make a big impact if properly controlled. Upon careful inspection, you might even discover that you are just spending money unreasonably. If you have equipment lying around that you are no longer using, then your best bet would be to sell it off for more cash. This is one of the swiftest ways to generate cash sometimes. On some occasions, you may find that leasing the equipment may help you maintain cash. This can be when you get equipment or lease it out to others. Leasing equipment to your debtors will help you generate fast cash without having it tied up.
