Enhancing Business Productivity

Productivity is an important element in the success of any business. However, it is truly surprising how little emphasis is placed on this very important aspect. Many people consider a focus on productivity to be a task that is undertaken in times of economic downturn. This is an absolutely incorrect assumption as productivity is not a tool to avoid business closure but a tool to boosts profits. If you want to aims at freeing your time for focusing on developing new products/services and devising strategies to beat the competition – all with the same resources at hand – then read on for five handy tips.

Tip #1: Measure your time
Remember that you can only improve on what you measure as otherwise you have no way of judging if you are improving or not! If you spend most of your time on a computer then use tools to measure how you spend your time. Find out the applications you use and the sites you visit and then audit the information weekly to judge where you can improve. If you are an outdoor person then use paper timesheets/PDA based software to find out how you are spending your time.

Tip #2: Establish and monitor deadlines
Meeting deadlines is crucial to improving the productivity of any business. Missed deadlines mean that projects/tasks start to overlap each other causing confusion and costing you not just money but also reputation. Ensure that all the stakeholders in a task are communicated the deadline well in advance. Send(but not flood) all stakeholders email reminders before a task is due for completion. Also use some sort of project management tools/charts to monitor progress and spot a task that is lagging behind schedule.

Tip#3: Invest in skill development
Your competitors can have the same machines, furniture, computers and even similar products. What differentiates you are your skills to do a task better. Invest in developing new skills to undertake new product development or decreasing your costs to do the same task.

Tip#4: Shop for “good fit” products/services
Remember that the best task you can do is the one that you are best equipped to do. Where possible upgrade your tools of the trade to help you claim a advantage by boasting of the best tools/services that your business uses. Make sure that your website/brochure clearly boasts your usage of these “premier” services/tools and describe how this improves your product/service.

Tip#5: Plan for business cycles
Every business has cycles when there is peak demand for a product/service. That is really the time when you need to arrange for enough stock/service so that inquiring customers are not turned away due to lack of inventory/personnel. Plan for such times well in advance. If you need to hire temporary staff then look for online/offline support assistants to help you out during this time.

Health Care Reform is Not Healthy

HEALTH CARE REFORM IS NOT HEALTHY!

LET’S CALL IT WHAT IT Is – HEALTH INSURANCE MONEY ALLOCATION AND RE-DISTRICTING

Health insurance premiums are driven by the success or failure of actual health recovery maintenance and the costs required to deliver of service. Harris L. Coulter, Ph.D., of Washington, DC, and editor of the 8th edition of the HPUS,is an internationally renowned medical historian and author of over 30 books and essays, which include: THE DIVIDED LEGACY, a four volume epochal history of medicine, which covers its origins to present day.

“Society today is paying a heavy price in disease and death for the monopoly granted the medical profession in the 1920’s. In fact, the situation peculiarly resembles that of the 1830s when physicians relied on bloodletting, mercurial medicines, and quinine, even though knowing them to be intrinsically harmful. And precisely the same arguments were made in defense of these medicines as are employed today, namely, that the benefits outweigh the risks. In truth, the benefits accrue to the physician, while the patient runs the risks.”-Harris Coulter, Ph.D., (Divided Legacy Vol 3)

There is no question we need reform in the areas of disease elimination improvements in Health, better delivery of health care when it is needed and health insurance parity. Personally, am all for reform, but let those reforms ring with the clarity of Truth and illuminate our way through the fog obfuscation.

Overall chemo-therapy and radiation are documented to be an absolute failure in the so-called war against cancer. The long-term survival rate of cancer patients using orthodox therapies remains abysmal and the statistical reportage is obfuscated.

Refer to: New England Journal of Medicine, “Progress Against Cancer,” May 8, 1986 by John C. Bailar, III and Elaine M. Smith, and a ten-year follow-up “The War on Cancer” which appeared in Lancet, May 18th, 1996, by Michael B. Spoorn. Therein is published in leading medical journals, but they remain as the only therapies and pharmaceutical companies enjoy federal mandate.
Stated simply you cannot poison a sick person well.

HEALTH CARE REFORM is a meme used to numb the mind and sway political process but has little or nothing to do with health and certainly is neither, reform in the ways the public perceives, nor what they dearly need.

Merely by changing who and how much they profit for health services is only a small fraction of the underlying problem and ultimately it’s you who pay. Current Congressional debates will not offer true reform of our systemic disease CARE, but strengthen insurance profits and control.

The fruit of the healthcare tree, while certainly abundant, is altogether rotten, because the roots are corrupted by disease. If the Food and Drug Administration which regulates both FOOD and drugs while having far reaching powers that are beyond the Constitution of the United States of America, is powerless to effectuate the genuine change required to modify the so-called health industry.

Nor can the FDA provide the reforms by its far reaching power and control, then how can we expect it to come from mandates from an under educated over lobbied congress?

Give credit where due, the FDA has been effective in causing millions of tones of ground meat and spinach. A little too late perhaps as the FDA has done nothing to stop chemical companies from pouring oceans of deadly toxic, and known carcinogens on our crops.

“Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans” ~ Jacques Cousteau

HOW CAN YOU HAVE HEALTH IF WE DON’T HAVE CLEAN WATER AND AIR?

We must stop poisoning our earth with unnecessary toxic chemicals, which leaches out the elements and minerals building blocks of the cells of our bodies, and support and teach the farmers on bio-dynamic farming.

Why is there no respect for and replication of how the Hunzas and several other tribes on earth, wholive to be well over 120, and disease free.

These tribes drink the water which comes off of the slow grinding of the glacier across mountain terrain and gives minute quantities of every element and every mineral. Their cells have
access to all the natural building blocks of life and therefore remain impervious to invasion and disease.

Health and Old Age Places with High Longevity: Hunza Pakistan the area of Hunza in Pakistan which has a high level of longevity. A Guide to Shangri-La: The Leading Longevity Sites on Earth

For Americans and the world at large where the crop land is awash in chemicals the minerals and elements are leached out of the soil and the roots of our food crops are have no way to chelate them so that we can digest them into our bodies.

What follows is a well known symptom called pica, and we are constantly looking for something to eat to satisfy the hunger of the cells and this leads to obesity and disease on a national scale.

There are solutions, but the FOOD administration, has done nothing to listen to, study, implement, nor promote the use of Bio-Dynamic Farming, which is proven to produce greater volumes of crops far healthier and do not poison our water aquifers.

One fairly recent proactive move; the FDA and the FTC have enforced the little known Federal Law under USC Title 21 Part 56, INFORMED CONSENT. This activity is evidenced by the too frequent drug commercials and advertisements. To name one example the anti depressant drug, ABILIFY, is known to cause death and suicide.

To our detriment and demise, the FDA has a tunnel vision partisan perspective and always reactive, rarely proactive when a patient actually dies from using an FDA approved drug, they routinely avoid any blame and state “there is no conclusive evidence to prove it was because of the drug.” No drug company is ever charged with a crime and no executives, nor doctors, are criminally charged for manufacturing, nor for prescribing the drugs.

WHY? Because the drugs are FDA approved so it would mean they are culpable.

However, when a substance derived and used by another Healing Art, i.e. Homeopathy, is found to be highly effective in combating and eliminating a disease such as cancer, or reversing the side effects of AIDS, a stroke, or Cystic Fibrosis, to name a few, the FDA routinely states there is no scientific evidence to support the claims moves swiftly to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.

We must continue to strengthen the education of the public on sound fundamentals of health maintenance.

We must allow for access and coverage to all branches of the Healing Arts. This is known as the ECLECTIC. The allopathic cartel are not the arbiters of truth, nor have they proven to be honorable stewards, nor have they provided viable solutions where other forms of healing arts have been successful, in some cases thousands of years.

THE PROBLEM

The problem is that over the past 67 years, a Federal Agency, the Food and Drug Administration, created in 1938 as an agency to ensure that Food, Drugs and Cosmetics moving in interstate commerce, were pure, unadulterated, contained what was stated on the label and safe for human consumption.

Over the years the FDA has undergone a metamorphosis and has become a threat to the civil liberties and public health of Americans, as well as added incredibly to the cost of the products it regulates.

The FDA has a long history of using the resources of the agency to conduct Gestapo type raids on medical clinics, terrorizing patients, staff and practitioners, seizing quantities of vitamins, manuals and harmless natural products, issues completely inaccurate, indeed, deliberately mendacious publicity releases slandering practitioners, nutritional products and innovative drugs and has so far departed from the purposes for which it was created as to become a menace to both the public’s health and their civil liberties.

Under 80 or more years of Allopathic domination, the standardized American health care system is unable to:

(1)Control the resurgence of Tuberculosis in the country;
(2)Control the rising rate of Cancer deaths;
(3)Control the rising rate of coronary artery deaths;
(4)Lower the infant mortality rate;
(5)Find an effective cure for AIDS.

There are available answers to all these deficiencies, but none of them are embraced in Allopathic Doctrine.

The question presented is, if there is any legal control over this vast agency and any way citizens can take legal action to cause the agency to be brought under control and be forced to comport itself in accordance with the intent of Congress in creating it, and the additional question of whether or not citizens who have been harassed by its Ultra Vires activities may sue for damages or other relief.

If such legal action is possible, is such legal action the best, or the sole means which can or should be employed to bring the agency under control.

A further question may be what or who is responsible for the agency getting out of control and what, if anything, can be done to ensure that the agency does not get out of control in the future and once again become a menace to society.

ANALYSIS

The agency in question, the Food and Drug Administration, is an out of control bureaucracy, undertaking to perform some proper regulatory functions but devoting many of its resources to illicit functions not contained in its enabling legislation and not permissible under the constitution.

The agency [which was] directed by Commissioner David Kessler, M.D, JD, who assumed the position after the enforced resignation of Joe Young, PhD, has done little to change its behavior except put on a fresh face from time to time.

An investigation revealed widespread corruption with many officials, taking large bribes, not to mention every member of Congress who are heavily lobbied by industries it was supposed to regulate, and the entire agency was demoralized and ineffective.

The agency has openly and notoriously formed “partnership” with private trade associations and special interest groups for the purpose of aiding and abetting non-price predation in the health care market.

The agency has lawful jurisdiction over some Foods, Drugs and medical devices which are in interstate commerce and has no jurisdiction over the practice of medicine or other healing professions.

Despite this rather clear distinction, the agency repeatedly attempts to interfere with health care practitioners by means of its enforcement powers and by liaison with state regulatory agencies, and by conducting Gestapo type raids on the offices and clinics of health care practitioners who practice in Schools of Practice other than the Allopathic School and by attempting to suppress the use of techniques of healing and of products for use in health care which are not within its regulatory jurisdiction.

In HEALTH UNITED STATES, an annual publication by the federal government, our national death rate from cancer is approximately 2,500,000 people per year and the rate is rising. Assuming a cost of $80,000 to $160,000 per person over the last 20 years, that figure represents $200,000,000 to $370,000,000 per year and 50,000,000 lives, or $4 TRILLION to $7.5 TRILLION dollars funneled from our collective economy into the hands of the medical pharmaceutical cartel. Is it any wonder, then, why we cannot find a cure?

In addition One of the first targeted, the FDA, or “Big Medicine,” since the early 1900’s, in this country was Dr. Royal Raymond Rife. His powerful evolutionary microscope, capable of shattering cancer cells and viruses with radio frequency vibrations, was destroyed and his books burned by federal authorities and he was imprisoned.

Some other embattled pioneers include, but are certainly not limited to: The healing arts of Ethno botany, Naturopathy Chiropractic and Acupuncture and Chelation, which all met intense resistance and violent opposition by federally protected orthodoxy.

Dietmar Schildwaechter, Ph.D., MD, was invaded in his home office in a militant style by state and federal authorities in the late 1980’s for introducing a cure for squamous cell cancer, which was proven in a 20-year study in Germany.

Andrew Ivy, MD, a pillar of the A.M.A., who came back from Germany after participating as a panelist in the Nuremberg war crime trials with a cure for cancer called Krebiozen, had his career shattered.

There too many more which are not listed here. These gifted pioneers brought relief to a suffering humanity and were ruthlessly attacked by medical authorities and scientific dogma. Each paid a high price but distinguished themselves by their courage and resolves to stand up for their convictions, even in the face of overwhelming opposition, loss of license and jail. For a closer look at the inner workings, read: THE CANCER INDUSTRY: the Classic Expose ‘on the Cancer Establishment, by Ralph W. Moss, Ph.D.

The FDA regularly approves dangerous, often lethal pharmaceuticals. The side effects of these potentially deadly, or harm causing pharmaceutical drugs can only be fully discovered by wide-spread use. This is despite the average $250-500,000,000 and 15 years to bring these drugs to market, including phase trial tests, trying to prove the elusive “efficacy” requirement of the F.D. &C. Act.

Typically, after one of their highly publicized “wonder” drugs fails, causes death or serious side effects, no FDA official nor PAC member company president, research assistant, corporate official, company doctor, nor testing lab will be subjected to raid, investigation, indictment or jail term.

To the trauma and suffering to the patients and their families and the productive work force, it comes with a hefty price tag.

Both Gaston Naessens and Dietmar Schildwaechter, Ph.D., MD, spent the last 40 years perfecting independent blood tests, which are able to pre diagnose any type of cancer and immune disorders up to two years prior to their onset, with a 1% margin of error. The industrial average false/negative ratio remains extremely high by comparison, yet these new tests are ignored or met with resistance.

THE RELEVANT SERVICE MARKET AND SUBSTITUTABLE ECONOMIC COMPETITORS

The Eclectic Practice of Medicine*

In 1906, Dr. Rolla Thomas completely revised the 1866 teaching manual by John Milton Scudder, and revised it yet again in 1907. This was the culmination of a thirty-year frenzy of published creativity at the Eclectic Medical Institute in Cincinnati, Ohio, and was the main teaching text at that school until the1930s…the college closed in 1939.

“…it were better for the doctor if he can forget that his patient has typhoid fever, pneumonia, dysentery, or whatever he may have, and study the conditions that are present. This may be wrongs of the circulation, of the nervous system, of the secretions, of digestion, of assimilation, or wrongs of the blood, but whatever the basal lesion, it must be overcome if the patient is to be benefited by medication.”

THE MONOPOLIZATION OF MEDICINE

The health care industry during the Progressive Era is well documented in academic studies and can reasonably be accepted as a given here without describing in great detail how or why it occurred. However, it was funded largely by the Rockefeller and Carnegie fortunes and was done to guarantee a dominant place in health care for the products of the petrochemical industry.

The Allopathic School of Medical Practice was picked to become the dominant survivor of the monopolization because it was:

(1) Numerically the largest,

(2) Had no well established system of doctrines which made it antagonistic to the use of a system of therapeutics based on petrochemical therapeutics,

(3) Was represented by a fairly well organized and active Trade Association which was receptive to a take over by the funders,

(4) Urgently needed a large infusion of cash and political influence to stop the growing public acceptance of its economic rivals and competitors,

(5) Had little to offer its members without such an infusion of cash and political influence,

(6) Were headed by a staff which welcomed any help – motivated by absolutely no idealism and almost entirely by avarice, the staff of the AMA was easy to enlist in the monopolization and proved extremely efficient – particularly Morris Fishbein, whose role was pivotal and whose service spanned several decades of the monopolization.

One of the chief monopolization strategies was through take over of medical education and the schools or universities which offered this. There were several hundred which offered a two year course in Allopathic Medicine and granted the M.D. degree, which was the sole credential necessary for practice at that time.

Competitive medical universities operated by Homeopathic and Eclectic interests were fewer, but at least 75 existed – some well established and endowed.

The monopolist could have selected any of these; they were all easy targets, but the Allopathic School of Practice had a void in its therapeutic system which made it ideal for the monopolist and the Homeopathic and Eclectic Schools had therapeutic systems which offered little room for the
incorporation of petrochemical technology.

Many Americans, at least those who could afford to do so, went abroad for their medical education, initially to England or Scotland but eventually to Germany where State supported Universities had better facilities and foreign students who could and would pay tuition to augment the salaries of the faculty were welcomed to the extent that lectures were offered in English as well as German to facilitate and accommodate these foreign scholars.

To a man, the initial faculty of John’s Hopkins, the first of the Medical Universities to be established and funded by the monopolists were graduates of German Universities and brought to the University both the medical and the political orientations gained as students at German universities, which they passed on to the students of John’s Hopkins, most of whom went out to become the faculties of other American medical colleges and further incorporate both the medical and the political orientations of German universities into the graduates of American Medical Universities funded by the monopolists. Those orientations remain a part of Allopathic medicine in the United States today.

This is primarily important in considering the role of the Allopathic School in genocidal activity, which the German medical profession entered into without protest between 1934 and 1945 under the National Socialist Regime in Germany.

Federal control started in earnest around 1938 with the Pure Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and this became what it is today in 1962 with the Kefauffer Amendments to that Act, which amendments included for the first time, an efficacy requirement which gave the FDA far more power to control both drugs and information about drugs.

The Federal Act was not intended to give the agency any control over the practice of medicine or other health care professions and both its language and many decisions of Federal Courts make that clear. Nevertheless, the agency has made and continues to make increasing excursions into attempts to control the practice of medicine.

Since 1910, a combination of some practitioners and some manufacturers of goods involved in this market has attempted to attain a monopoly in the market to the exclusion of substitutable economic competitors.

Some of the goods in this market, particularly those consisting of synthetic petrochemical pharmaceuticals, are preferentially used by the practitioners involved in the monopolization to the virtual exclusion of other goods.

However, a large amount of the goods involved may be purchased and used by consumers without the recommendation or authorization of health care practitioners and the consumer is free to consult such practitioners or not as he or she sees fit, in most circumstances.

Licensure of health care practitioners is a function of State governments, all of which have a system of examination and licensure of some health care practitioners. There is some variation from state to state in which practitioners are licensed and which are not licensed.

There is universal licensure of physicians and surgeons, osteopathic physicians and surgeons, dentists, chiropractic physicians and there is considerable variation as to the licensure of naturopathic physicians and Oriental medical practitioners (acupuncturists) on a state by state basis.

Despite the state by state variation, all of these practitioners practice in a virtually uniform fashion all have trade associations and specialty societies which are national in scope and all receive fairly standardized training.

Licensure for physicians and surgeons was initially begun around 1890 on a state by state basis at the instigation of the American Medical Association, which is the trade association for the Allopathic School of Medical Practice.

When the process was begun, State Legislatures typically created three separate State Boards of Medical examiners, to examine and license medical practitioners of the Allopathic, Homeopathic and Eclectic Schools of Medical Practice; in many states the Osteopathic School was also given a Board of Examiners.

Initially, the licenses granted to these practitioners was to treat any human disease, disorder or condition by drugs, surgery or any other means and all persons not so licensed were forbidden to undertake such activities for compensation.

Shortly thereafter, other health care practitioners were also given licenses which carried out certain exceptions to the universal licensure of physicians, such as Dentists, Podiatrists, Pharmacists, Nurses, Midwives, Physiotherapists and eventually, Acupuncturists.

The campaign for licensure carried out by the AMA was for the purpose of attaining for its members an exclusive license to practice health care for compensation and to exclude all substitutable economic competitors from the market.

This was not accomplished as State Legislators usually saw fit to license their economic competitors as well in order to maintain competition in the Relevant Service Market.

The campaign to attain exclusive licensure not having succeeded, the AMA next attempted to bring about a merger between the competitive schools of medical practice; that campaign is ongoing and has succeeded in some states to a degree, although all states continue to license health care practitioners who are substitutable economic competitors to allopathic physicians and have clearly articulated policies encouraging competition between different sorts of health care providers, set forth in state legislation.

The AMA and its component state medical societies, nevertheless, continued with unrelenting efforts to monopolize health care and have been convicted of Antitrust violations repeatedly.

The Federal Trade Commission brought an enforcement action against the AMA and its component societies resulting in information concerning anticompetitive misconduct and subsequently a private enforcement action by 4 chiropractors resulted in further permanent injunctions against anticompetitive misconduct.

The later action, Wilk, et al. v. AMA was based upon a campaign conducted by the AMA through its Department of Investigation and Council Against Quackery “to first contain then eliminate Chiropractic”.

During the litigation, the Department of Investigation and the Council Against Quackery were hurriedly disbanded by the AMA and files of these organizations were handed over to a private organization which, funded by the Pharmaceutical Advertising Council, continues the anticompetitive campaigns as an ostensible private organization, which is actually an AMA front organization. Its anticompetitive activities have intensified since the injunctions against the AMA were issued and affirmed.

A large part of the plan of monopolization has been and continues to be the suppression of information about health care providers and modalities which are competitive with those of AMA members.

The AMA initially formed a sub rosa organization, the “Health Information Control Council” which had members from several bureaucratic regulatory agencies as members. This was also broken up during the Wilk litigation.

As a part of the Wilk litigation, the Court held that calling a licensed competitor a Quack would constitute an antitrust offense; since that time the AMA front organization has substituted the word “fraud” for “quack” in its anticompetitive campaigns which increasingly are undertaken with State and Federal bureaucrats into whose “hidden agendas” the achievement of monopoly by the AMA and standardization of therapeutics fit extremely well.

During the past 25 years, most of the monopoly activity of this AMA front organization has been with bureaucrats and third party payees, such as Blue Cross and Blue Shield, which are both private insurers and pay agents for governmental programs such as Medicare.

In these situations, these “insurance companies” do not function in their traditional roles as casualty insurers, but rather as cost-plus contract pay agents and, in this role, their activities neatly interface with both the AMA’s monopolization efforts and the “hidden bureaucratic agendas” of regulatory agencies.

It is this combination of the AMA, acting through a front organization, the “insurance” companies who are not insuring but acting as cost-plus contract pay agents and the regulatory agencies involved in a “hidden agenda” which in combination, are bringing about and attempting to bring about the monopoly in health care which the AMA has been engaged in creating since 1890.

This combination has already succeeded in dangerously decreasing the quality of goods and services and astronomically increasing their price in the Relevant Service and Goods Market.

This has been accomplished by bureaucratic activity which is directly violative of the clearly articulated policies of the States and has as its purpose both increasing such costs and decreasing the quality of goods and services, and although it is state action, it is not such state action as is protected from Antitrust scrutiny by the State Action Exemption to the Antitrust Laws.

‘…It is the thesis of this remarkable book that early vaccinations can result in mild cases of sub-clinical encephalitis which, in turn, may well be responsible — at least in part — for the increase in autism, hyperactivity, dyslexia, sociopathy, and developmental disabilities, a rise that roughly coincides with the initiation of infant vaccinations. Coulter suggests further linkages to the increase in adolescent crime and suicide, and the decline in SAT scores.’ Stanley Kripner, AHP, January 1993.

Job Application – Employer Stops Communicating

In this economy, a number of job seekers are experiencing a known affect mostly experienced post the job interview, that of when the employer stops communicating and goes cold. This comes as a surprise to many job seekers, who feel that not only had they made progress with this job application to a great point in the employment process, but that after what they thought was a great job interview they are wondering where the offer letter is?

As a recruiter, I know this situation is increasing. The market is flooded with good candidates, and employers can negotiate some great deals at present from employees they thought that they would never gain access to. But what I also know, is that job applicants could have either predicted this situation occurring earlier in the job application process, or have mitigated the problem.

Employment is a process

The first thing to state, is that employment is a process. Firstly you have job application, which is most successfully approached through a combination of techniques combining direct application to selected employers (push marketing), personal branding (pull marketing), and responding to adverts (reactive job application). The second stage is employment, and with so much regulation around these days that is always run to a process. This process will differ from company to company, and reflect both that companies culture and the country in which they operate. But it will always run to a process.

The process will differ between companies, but generally for corporates expect a more sterile and remote type approach, while for small employers expect a great deal of change and people innovation in what may not be a well developed or regularly used process. When half of all private sector jobs are sourced from what are termed SME employers, this type of under developed and not recently used process can lead to the greatest number of cases where the prospective employer stops communicating.

Where did you find the job?

A key issue in employment time scales is noting where you sourced the job from. Processes which create a distance between job applicant and hiring manager allow for an easy non-communicative exclusion from the employment process. Hence your likely hood of suffering non-communication increases where you sourced the job either via a jobs board or a recruiter (people who are used to dealing with rejecting job applicants regularly). Direct application to the employer or jobs sourced by networking make such a situation without due cause and hence explanation very unlikely. Your employment process

Your understanding of an employers hiring process starts from the moment you decide that you might want to apply for a job there. While corporate employers will mostly have either a section of their corporate website or a dedicated standalone website where potential job applicants can read about the company and their processes, SME employers might not be so generous. In all cases, I would recommend reading governmental websites which guide job seekers about employment and the law, particularly direct.gov.uk

In summary, aside from legislation which outlaws discrimination on many grounds including age, ability and race, there are few pieces of legislation which cover the process of going from job applicant to employee. Those that are regularly used generally cover the accuracy and legality of the job advert, and they are enforced by your local trading standards office. Hence, unless a job adverts suggests an ideal start date, there is no formal time scale over which the employment process can last.

Telephone interview questions

However, this leads to the opportunity for the job seeker. As no legislation exists, one of the questions that every job seeker should hence ask in the employment process, at latest in their initial telephone interview, is:

What is your employment process?
Please outline the process and time scales that you intend to follow in placing the right candidate in your advertised job
Who is involved in the process?

The questions you are looking to note down in these early stages are the time scales, and who is involved: names, titles and functions. Any employment process will involve at minimum three people: the hiring manager; someone from HR, or who handles the employment contract; the hiring managers boss.

Employment team

It is important in any job application that to improve your chances of getting that job, that you known the name and title of the hiring manager at the earliest possible stage. However, in the overall employment process, the names and functions of others involved are as key in the stages after getting the hiring managers approval.

In small firms, the HR process may be handled by a third party outsourcing firm, or the companies legal representatives. If you find yourself engaged with a company who do use their legal representative to draft employment contracts, ask for a copy to be available at the job interview, as these arrangements cans often greatly extend employment time scales.

Secondly, there is always a hiring managers boss around somewhere, who is involved in the decision making process. This is even the case when you are being hired by the owner or managing director, as they will consult other directors or employees, external consultants or their social partners. You may not on occasions get a formal name for this person, but be sure you will meet them.

Employment time scale

The key information that you have now collected should now tell you two things.

Firstly, it should tell you your chances of being hired. Busy people who need to hire extra people to help them out will allow employment time scales to slip, as they are busy focused on doing the work over managing the job. This means that they sometimes also get inventive, and hence rather than employing a new person directly may find it easier to employ a contractor or buy in an automated service to reduce their workload. If you are not sure of the “why” the hiring manager needs this position fulfilled, then your chances of employment will always be weak.

Secondly, you should know the outline time scale of both the defined process and the start date. Now through the employment process, you can handle situations when time scales and dates slip by asking how this fits into the process outlined at your telephone interview, and are the time scales now changed or just slipped? Often in big companies, the individual dates of the process will slip, while the start date of employment will stay solid. This is not a problem, as long as you remain aware of any notice period you need to give an existing employer. If you point this out too late in the process, then you could be rejected simply for someone who is available right now.

Death Valley

The final issue to point out is what every sales person knows as Death Valley, the point after you have made the bid application and the customer is in internal decision making mode. While in the case of employment both employer and job applicant are key joint decision makers, each needs to come independently to their own decision. However, on the side of the job seeker, this period can be tense, nervous and often concluding in the though that “they are employing someone else, aren’t they?” The key sales person strategy to over coming Death Valley is pre-agreed communications points, when both parties agree that they should communicate by a certain date or within a certain number of days. At each point in the employment process, you should check the process and time scales moving forward, but particularly after the job interview. If you don’t, then expect an unhappy emotional experience in Death Valley. If you agree the time scales, then when a non communication period occurs you know that on or around the agreed date you are entitled to pick up the telephone with the simple reason that you were just checking that all was proceeding to the agreed time scale.

Employer non-communication is not always a confirmation of your not getting that job, and its handling can make your job seeking experience a lot easier and quicker. Some simple understanding at the start of the employment process, and knowledge of time scales and who is involved, should enable you to get the job you want.

Small Business Phone Service That Really Matters To You

Do you know how important is a business phone service to a business company? Well, I have asked this question because I have observed that there are small and medium enterprises (SMEs) that don’t bother to have a phone service connected in their offices. I don’t know what service or products they offer why they don’t need to install even a small business phone service? I can’t see any logic about having put up a business if you have no means of contacting your customers. I hope also that you are doing a good business and not ‘monkey business.’ The business phone is very important for us even when you only have a small business. Communication system that is not expensive is one of a very important factor to make our businesses work, gain enough revenue and be able to expand in the future, right? What’s the use of putting up a business if you don’t have future plans for improvement and expansions?

Okay, for those who haven’t realized yet the importance of having a business phone service, I would like you to consider the following points below:

• Having a business phone service should be one of your priorities even when you are starting a small business. As I have said a while ago, this is very important so that you will have the means of contacting your customers and vice versa. Don’t you know that in any single minute you can be losing a good customer just because you cannot be contacted? Remember that it is always a customer’s right to call whenever he needs some information about your products and services, so you should be there to answer some queries and information. It doesn’t matter whether you are only using a small business phone service.

• Having a business phone is one good indication that a company is ultimately willing to serve a client or customer. A line of communication can make a good relationship between a company and the customers. It’s a one way process in which the company can call the customer and vice versa. In fact, in most cases, it is always a customer that calls the attention of the company to inquire for certain products or services.

• Having a small business phone service doesn’t really matter at all. Customers don’t look whether you have a small or big budgeted communication facility. The most important here is the line of communication that you can provide because you are doing business. A small business phone service is enough for all customers. What they need is only a direct line to the company where they have purchased certain products or services, to ask questions regarding the products the company sells or any other product or business related matters.

What Can A Business Marketing Service Really Bring To My Business?

When using a service for marketing your business is mentioned to many small business owners they often look at as another expense that they can do without.
