In the United States, there’s always a heated conversation about employment. While the numbers always seem to indicate that there simply isn’t enough work to go around for everyone, over half (57%) of the businesses currently operating in the U.S. claim that employee retention is a problem. That is to say — our businesses can’t find enough people who want to stay at their jobs!

Much of this — as much as 22% of all new hires in America — can be attributed to poor performance and temperament issues among new employees. This is so much of an issue for American businesses that they are more frequently opting to use the services of an outplacement firm.

Outplacement consulting firms and outplacement companies all serve an important function in the workplace — to help businesses with talent acquisition. Because retaining employees is so difficult, it’s something of a high operating cost for most. That’s why businesses are flocking to these companies which onboard, consult, and help place qualified employees with businesses that would be an excellent match for them.

If you’re looking for the HR outplacement services Texas residents have trusted for years, look no further. Each year, these services are increasingly becoming the favorite for corporations and other agencies when it comes time to onboard new talent. It’s saving these businesses a ton of money, too.

Consider that the United States Department of Labor estimates that the average costs of one of these hiring incidents can cost as much as 30% of the potential earnings of the employee’s first year. Then consider how badly it hurts businesses to have so many employees join their organizations, and then leave within a month or two. The costs of training and onboarding that individual are essentially gone forever, and the cycle must begin anew as a replacement employee is trained and brought on.

The trends indicate that the future of business onboarding is likely to go through a business or service that streamlines the process for larger businesses who are doing a lot of hiring. Outplacement services are likely to see a huge boost in business.

There’s More Than One Way To Pave a Driveway

Asphalt

When you are building a driveway for your home, you have two main choices — asphalt or concrete. Though you can do gravel or get fancy and do brick pavers, the vast majority of driveways are either asphalt driveways or concrete driveways. There are advantages and disadvantages to both, so you need to make sure you weigh the pros and cons of each before making a decision.

When it comes to cost, asphalt is much cheaper to install than concrete. Asphalt costs can fluctuate based on oil prices, but it generally costs less than $5 a square foot. When you figure that the average two-car driveway is about 15-18 feet wide and about 20 feet long, you are looking at $1,500-$1,800 max for an asphalt driveway. A standard concrete driveway can be as

Stability studies

You may have heard of blister pack packaging, but what exactly is it? This is, essentially, the way many medications today are dispensed. There are many benefits to blister packaging designs that you may not have realized — let?s review some of the obvious benefits.

Among the Best Medical Packaging Techniques

One of the benefits of blister packaging is that it controls the dispension rate. Although bottles will typically spell out how frequently a consumer is supposed to take pills, it?s well known that consumers will often ignore this information and do something else entirely, anyway. So blister packaging designs can help prevent this issue from popping up. They help consumers understand exactly what to

Commercial Real Estate Isn’t Just About Office Buildings and Skyscrapers! Warehouse Space and What it Can do for You

Leasing commercial property

A recent study has concluded that the storage and warehouse leasing industry in the United States is worth approximately $26 billion. This number doesn’t include the construction or outright purchase of storage facilities, just leasing. Manufacturing warehouse space is an important part of running a business where there’s a large amount of inventory to keep track of, so it only makes sense that so many business owners would want to invest.

Whether you’re a small business owner looking for extra storage space, or running a large moving business and need space for trucks and other large industrial items, leasing a warehouse can take a huge weight off of your shoulders. The demand for storage space increases by just under 10% every year, but that small percentage really adds up! Since the year 2000,

Paving the Way: Exploring the Top 3 Reasons Why Asphalt Driveway Repair is Better Than Concrete Driveway Repair

Nasphalt driveway repairow that the winter is finally over — well, kind of — it’s a good time to tackle all those ambitious projects that you started but couldn’t quite finish during the fall and winter. And if you’re like most homeowners, driveway repairs are most likely to be at the top of that list! Whether it’s concrete driveway repair or asphalt driveway repair is irrelevant: the most important that is that you get it done!

You may not think that you’re driveway is that important, but it definitely serves a much more important purpose than a place to park your vehicle. A driveway has the ability to add or subtract value to your property. It has the great potential to increase your property’s curb appeal or it can become a sore spot the entire neighborhood is tire of, with damaged and sunken driveways being the worst. The best way to ensure your property maintains its curb appeal is to keep up with its maintenance, and that includes the asphalt driveway repair! Remember, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. Rather, it’s green where you water it.

But the great debate over which ground cover is better for a driveway and adds more curb appeal and functionality has been brewing for some time now, with supporters of both asphalt and concrete driveways each claiming their driveway is much better than the other. So who’s right? After all, both concrete and asphalt driveway repair are needed for maintenance and to increase curb appeal. But even with the strong smell of asphalt driveway repair and repaving, asphalt is one kind of ground cover that has several advantages over concrete.

Still not convinced? Here are just a few reasons why asphalt driver repair, maintenance, and the overall look and feel of it may be a better choice than concrete.

It’s less expensive
Ask any homeowner if they’re interested in finding ways to save money and the answer will be a big, fat, resounding yes! It’s really a no brainer. So the best thing to do is to choose asphalt over concrete when it comes to your driveway. Regardless of how much better you may or may not think it looks, as well as all the other benefits you’ll read about it soon, installing an asphalt driveway can cost up to 30% to 40% less than concrete!

Hard knock life
Between constant exposure to the elements, the weight of heavy cars, plus a ton of foot traffic, it’s no secret that driveways take a serious beating — but asphalt is equipped to handle it and handle it well. Asphalt pavement is a carefully engineered mixture made out of an aggregate such as stone and sand which is then mixed with liquid asphalt cement, which is a petroleum product. The aggregate is heated and mixed according to exact proportions with the liquid asphalt at about 300°F. This makes it extremely durable and long lasting in comparison to concrete, which is prone to cracks, breaks, and surface flaking.

Easier to maintain
Like all things, asphalt will eventually start to show some signs of wear and tear, even though it may take a long time. In the event that you do need to do some asphalt driveway repair and maintenance due to lineal cracking, these repairs are fairly inexpensive. Almost all home improvement retailers carry the crack sealant products needed for do it yourself (DIY) driveway repair. The best part about is that no previous pavement experience or expertise is needed to carry out these simple repairs! Keeping up with the general maintenance of your driveway is an important part of extending its lifespan. With regular and proper maintenance, an asphalt driveway can last upwards of 20 years or more. Because it can’t be heated, concrete driveways are more difficult to repair and have shorter lifespans.

It can take and hold the heat
Unlike concrete, asphalt can not only take a lot of heat but it can also hold a lot of heat due to its dark color. This melts snow much faster in the winter!

Las Vegas, Chicago and Orlando are the three major cities that are home to about 50% of the largest 200 trade shows in the United States. In 2014, a study by B2B Magazine showed that events are cited as the second largest area of growth in media spending just behind digital. On average, a company allocates 31.6% of its total marketing budget to events and exhibiting. With all the money being spent on these events, you can imagine every little detail must be taken into account.

In exhibit design, this is true down to the square footage. For example, for every 100 square feet of exhibit space there are 2.2 trade show visitors on average in the U.S.

Finding the Most Fabulous Fit for Your Flourishing Company

Written by Economic Development Jobs on April 12, 2016. Posted in Uncategorized

executive search consultantStarting a business can be an intimidating feat on many fronts. But for those who are able to get things up and running, the hard work and potential obstacles or pitfalls don’t end there. Having the right people on staff at any company or business is crucial to keep things running smoothly, and working toward a profit and an overall successful business. Unfortunately, at times there are plenty of factors stacked against employers who are trying to find the best candidates for the perfect fit in each position. But by hiring an executive search consultant, some of that guess work and potential for a high employee turnover rate could be diminished.

What can an executive search consultant or firm do for you? 
In one poll, over half of responding organizations, about 57% of them, reported that they considered employee retention to be a significant problem. And it has been estimated that within 45 days of getting hired at a job, 22% of newly hired employees end up leaving the job, for a variety of reasons ranging from poor work performance to issues with attitude and temperament. And this process of hiring and losing employees does not come cheaply. The cost to a business or company of employee turnover can turn out to be anywhere from 30% to a staggering 150% of the employee’s intended salary. There are many services out there to help diminish these losses and eliminate altogether those types of rapid and costly turnovers. Talent acquisition management companies and restructuring consulting firms can help to build companies up by finding the right people to work in the business. But an executive search consultant takes that a step further by finding the right fit for higher positions in the company.

Working out the kinks, one position at a time 
By finding the right people for senior, advanced, or other specialized levels and positions in the company, search consultants can help to strengthen your business from the foundation. With these positions solidly filled with reliable and capable individuals, there are more trustworthy people involved who can work together to help seek out and place the right candidates into other open positions as well. Executive search firms do often do the leg work for companies that are too busy with all of the other responsibilities and tasks of getting a business off of the ground. These firms can find people currently doing the type of work that needs to be done at the hiring business, and if those individuals are impressive at the work that they do, they could find themselves being headhunted by the search agencies and the companies which are hiring. Spending the money on a search consultant or firm can ultimately save the business valuable time and excess amounts of money.

Getting a new business started smoothly is something that is incredibly difficult to do. While certainly not impossible, there are several factors at work that trying obstacles, and to successfully navigate these difficulties, it requires a great amount of persistence and hard work. Delegating a bit of that hard work out to a search consulting firm could end up saving your company in the long run.

RV camping is becoming more and more popular — in the 2014 American Camping Report, 16% of campers stayed in RV, and 8.8 million households own one. The revenue of RV parks and campgrounds was five billion dollars in 2013. One thing is for sure: RV campers bring camping to the next level. Not only is there maximum comfort, but the additional storage space and amenities mean that you can extend your trip for much longer. Having a full kitchen to cook with means that your eating habits don’t need to change much. But, there are several important factors that must be kept in mind when camping.

Firstly, the right spot for setting up your RV must be selected. Doing research beforehand and finding RV friendly campsites with hook ups will maximize the potential of your recreational vehicle. Also, you’ll need a s
