Managing & Motivating Employees: What to Do When the Honeymoon Phase is Over

Managing & Motivating Employees: What to Do When the Honeymoon Phase is Over

      I recently read an interesting article by Erika Flora where she posed an extremely thought-provoking question: “Do you praise your teams enough?” She continued by discussing the benefits of motivating individuals via recognition and praise and offered some valuable tips for easy ways to show more appreciation and regard for employees.

    Coincidentally, right after reading her post, I stumbled onto the following article by Eva Jenkins: “The Honeymoon is Over! 22 Million Workers Are Divorced From Their Jobs!” Jenkins’ article focuses on the shocking fact that there are 22 million disgruntled workers in the American workforce.

    Both these articles made me wonder if the American corporate culture makes employees feel like valuable contributors or just a means to an end? Would job satisfaction and employee morale and retention be higher if there was a concerted effort to treat each employee as if he or she was the most valuable asset a company had?

    Do companies give their employees enough credit for their achievements? The short answerbased on the stats aboveseems to be no.

How Parcel Tracking Has Revolutionised the Parcel Delivery Process

How Parcel Tracking Has Revolutionised the Parcel Delivery Process

Sending parcels used to be thought of as a risky situation for some people, especially those who have expensive or delicate items to send. There have been many stories of parcels going missing, being delayed as they get left behind or even worse: parcels being intercepted or stolen. These stories have only served to knock many potential parcel senders’ confidence and may have prevented them from sending a parcel and instead using less efficient methods such as delivering parcels themselves.

The trouble is that with many international deliveries it is highly impractical to take the parcel there yourself, instead sending parcels using a courier service or parcel delivery company could get your parcels delivered as well as giving you the confidence that you’ve chosen the right service and this is down to being able to track where your parcel is, anywhere in the world!

These courier services will now be able to send parcels but keep you in the loop by providing a unique tracking code with their deliveries, this code when entered on to the courier’s site give you access to the inner workings of the courier company and tells you where the parcel was last seen.
