Why a Business Policy is Important?

A business policy is an important component in any industry whether it is a small-scale business or a business conglomerate. There are many kinds of policies that any business owner can set to serve as guidelines for its workforce. The written policy will determine the performance and violations of the employees.

When you plan to start a business, you need to create a business policy that balances the welfare of your employees and your business interest. If the policy is not balanced, it’s biases can affect the behavior of your employees and their loyalty to the company will be jeopardized.

To achieve high production, the policy should inspire and encourage your workers to work harder to receive rewards and benefits as the management has promised after boosting their production. The policy should be harmonious with the needs of its workers and increase company earnings.

A company that operates without an existent company policy cannot expect harmony within its workforce and the management because there are no definite rules and regulations that they have to follow. Before hiring your employees, they have to be oriented about your company policy as their guidelines to avoid future violations and misconduct. The importance of business policy should be stressed for any business endeavor to straighten out some loopholes and lapses between the management and workers.

An open communication from the management should be imposed regularly to monitor your employees’ performance and work ethics. As technology advances, you can update and revise the business policy from time to time and strictly enforce them for proper compliance.

Included in the company policy are the job descriptions, absences and tardiness, liability, wearing of uniforms, sick and vacation leaves, health and safety, grievance, union, grievance, salary and wages, social security and insurance benefits.

The success of a business operation would depend on how the company policy is being implemented. If the employees are aware of their duties and responsibilities, they are cautious about their performance because they know that a violation would end in reprimand or suspension. A memorandum should be circulated to remind the employees about their role in the business organization.

Securing the Industrial Equipment You Need for the Job at Hand

Construction work requires that crews have the right equipment on hand at all times. They have tight deadlines and need to stay on budget. They cannot afford to take time off because their supervisor or foreman forgot to rent or buy the heavy cranes for the job. When you are in charge of making sure the job site is set up and ready to go each day, it is important that you know where you can go to find equipment like cranes and other machinery for your construction company. Instead of looking to the inventory on hand at local equipment dealers, you can begin here to get guaranteed service by checking out the heavy duty inventory available to you online.

Renting or buying construction equipment online is growing in popularity. Depending on the time of year, local dealers may run out of stock. They may have already rented out or sold what they had to other companies, leaving you high and dry when it comes to getting your job site ready to go. Likewise, during the wintertime and off season, dealers may downsize their inventory to save money. If you need a crane during the slow season, you could have to travel for miles or even out of state to find what you need.

Instead of taking that chance, you can get what you need when you need it when you partner with an online equipment dealer. You can browse the inventory at your leisure and make sure you are getting a crane that fits the job that must be done. You can also avoid the worry of having to transport and set it up yourself, as the company will take care of these services for you. In fact, before they leave the crane at the job site, they will make sure it is safe and ready to use. This courtesy ensures that your crew members are safe and ready to begin work when they arrive first thing in the morning.

You also get the convenience of having the crane serviced if it breaks down or needs to be maintained. You and your crew may not have time to stop your busy work schedules to work on machinery. Instead, you can call the company from which you purchased or rented it and have the company’s staff come to you for repairs.

Fat Cat Designs – Metal Art Overview

Art comes in all forms and art crafted from pieces of metal is unique and attractive. The combination of steel, fire and powder is a powerful message in the world of art and gives the message strength. Metal art has become a popular choice for outdoor use as it has the ability to stand up to the elements better than other materials.

Typical Fat Cat Designs are cut from 12 gauge steel with a 6’ x 12’ CNC plasma cutter. The design receives polish and then is blasted and treated with an environmentally friendly chemical that improves the powder adhesion and resistance to corrosion of the steel. Upon completion of the preliminary treatment, the powder application is next and the project is finished in a 385 degree oven, with large objects being cured in an 8’x 20’oven. The finish is durable, tough and eco-friendly. The powder coating is available in more than 50 colors.

Metal Signs

The powder coating protects the finish from extreme weather conditions, chemicals, moisture, damage from impact, ultraviolet light and fading, corrosion, abrasions, chipping and scratches. The powder coating is environmentally friendly and releases fewer pollutants into the atmosphere than paint or other metal protection applications.

The powder is applied with an electrostatic spray deposition process. The elements that make up the powder are melted, mixed and cooled and ground into a powder that has the constancy of baking powder. The spray gun applicator applies an electrostatic charge to the powder which has the optimum adhesion property to stick to the metal.

The designs can be chosen from a catalog of standard designs or the customer can work with a designer to custom design their own personalized creation. The creations are unique and eye catching and will provide just the right accent to an area or become the focal point for a room.

Not only can the metal art be powder coated, but any metal that can withstand the high temperature baking process. The items include metal furniture, rims and wheels for tire shops, parts for motorcycles and all terrain vehicles (ATV) and parts for just about any commercial and industrial application. Metal signs are often used for fund raising projects for schools and athletic programs.

Because of the durability of the metal and the powder coating, metal art work makes excellent outdoor decorations. Whether it is the family name, initials, motto, special emblem or a message, visitors will see your statement conveys strength. The metal welcome signs also make a very appropriate and affordable gift for new homeowners or longtime friends.

EMS Package and Philippines Custom Taxes

My feeling of sending a box or package to the Philippines is not exciting anymore it is more of fear, worry and hesitation. Hesitant if I am really going to use the service of EMS Philippines or the local post office. The boxes I have sent previously were opened and some items were stolen, I am caught in a dilemma if I am still going to use this untrusted service.

It creates trauma and left a lot of what if. What if the new box I am going to send home will be opened again? What if they stole the precious item I want my family to keep, what if the box didn’t arrive and what if my family needs to pay shipping taxes that are unexplainable? Speaking of taxes, recently I found a status update that was shared by hundreds of people, it is all about paying a lot of money to the customs personnel before you can get the package you are about to receive. Please read it below or head over to the direct post (by clicking the hyperlink below the images) and share it to your friends to remind them what kind of service we can get from these people.

This calculation is not new it is all over the internet, people complaining about this huge taxes for the package they are about to receive (for example), though it is all about the Pasay Custom while this one Las Pinas custom, Hmmm.. It is spreading huh? If you will search Mr. Google you will find a lot of results about this magic tax story and if the custom personnel is kind enough he will release your boxes under the table, and of course he will remind you that if not of his kindness you will not able to get your most awaited box. Mind you it is not free, you still have to pay but cheaper than the magic calculation written on a piece of paper, not original receipt ok?

With these types of transaction and doings, it is really traumatic to send boxes to the Philippines you either get it opened and items stolen or you have to pay huge amount of money just to have it. It is more fun in the Philippines!

So what you think scam or not?
