For anyone who runs a company, it is rather obvious how important maintaining happy employees is to the business. Once employees start to leave, it is going to leave a hole in the business. This forces you to seek out new employees. While doing this, productivity drops as there is now an empty space in your company. When you find someone to bring in, productivity drops because someone else must train this individual with what they do. It costs time and money to train new employees, even if the new employees are not paid as much as the person who left. That is why keeping employees is important. But how do you do this? Naturally, if an employee finds another job that pays substantially more they are likely going to take it. However, it doesn’t mean you should just give up all hope. The percentage of people who leave for better paying jobs usually is small, especially if you do most of your hiring from within. Instead, as Status Labs points out, it is important to keep your employees happy.

Status Labs specializes in improving a company’s image while also helping it improve productivity. How does it do this though? In order to boost productivity, the company needs to improve an employee’s feel and appreciation. If they are happy with their job and with their company in general, they are less likely to leave. That is why giving obtainable goals with incentives is a key way to not only boost productivity but to keep everyone happy. Status Labs points out that when an employee sees a light at the end of a tunnel and also knows there might be an award for it, they are more likely to put in their best effort and do whatever they can in order to obtain that award. It makes putting in long hours and extra effort that much more worth it.

Recognizing achievements for employees is a must as well. Whether it is someone who has been with the company for five or 10 years or someone who just accomplished an impressive feat, it all helps make them feel appreciated.

Pfizer, the giant pharmaceutical company has merged with Allergan PLC. The president of Eucatex, Flávio Maluf, has announced the merger and noted that Pfizer is the producer of the popular cosmetic medicine, Botox. The merger forms the biggest pharmaceutical laboratory in the world and will be renamed as Pfizer PLC. The plan for the combined company is to launch some 12 new prescription drugs. Pfizer has invested heavily in cancer fighting drug trials, diabetes drugs, and new drugs to combat Alzheimer’s.  This isn’t the first time Flavio Maluf has informed the public about this sort of thing, as he’s also written about the Dupont chemical merger as well.

Wikipedia indicates that Flávio Maluf is the 55 year old son of career Brazilian politician Paulo Maluf. He is a graduate from FAAP in Brazil with a degree in mechanical engineering. His Eucatex and GrandFood Group businesses own the Golden Rations and Premier Pet brands. The US Food and Drug Administration has approved one of these new drugs to use in the fight against breast cancer. To date, Allergan’s research and development has been in the area of aesthetics of women’s eyes and other issues of women’s health. This kind of merger and move out of the US is being actively discouraged by the US Federal government after so much business had already moved to Asia.

In his reporting of this development, Mr. Maluf emphasized on Twitter that it was Allergan that actually purchased Pfizer. This enables Allergan to move all corporate and research operations to Ireland. The interest in doing the move is based on the much lower business tax rate in Ireland compared to the United States. The taxes in that country will amount to no more than about 10%, whereas Pfizer has paid up to 25% in taxes in the US in the past. The significant differences in the amount paid for taxes has enabled Pfizer’s executives to defend the merger with their stockholders. This is just one of many reported mergers that have happened in the last few years.

The name Bruce Levenson is well known to the majority of NBA fans in the world and those involved in the real time information industry. Levenson shot to fame in the business world when he and his business partner looked to change the way news and information was delivered for the oil and gas industry with the creation of their UCG company. Initially started as a newsletter in a spare room in the 1970s the company has developed into one of the most effective users of the latest technology to help provide real time information for a number of the biggest industries in the world.

The success of the UCG company has allowed Levenson and his business partners to explore different options for spending their time over the course of the 21st century. One of the most well known aspects of the life of Bruce Levenson is his career as the public face of the Atlanta Hawks NBA franchise. Levenson led the Atlanta, Georgia based franchise from the very bottom of the NBA standings to the top of the Eastern Conference by the end of the 2014 regular season. Levenson and his partners believed they had led the franchise as far as possible by the close of the 2014 season and completed the sale of the team during 2015.

The sale of the Hawks has allowed Bruce Levenson to spend more time working on one of his main loves, which is the philanthropic work he completes on a regular basis. Levenson initially used his position as the leader of the Atlanta Hawks to publicize the programs and initiatives he embarked on for the public, including his backing of the Washington D.C. based U.S. Holocaust Museum.

Since departing from the Hawks franchise the popular business person has found himself at the center of the fund raising efforts for the University of Maryland and its newly opened school providing an education in philanthropy and not for profit work. Over the course of the short life of the program the focus has shifted from providing skilled leaders for charitable programs in Maryland to a more global outlook. This change in focus reflects the changing career and life of Bruce Levenson in creating the perfect platform for those hoping to help others.

It is important to know that one of the most strongest thing that any person can do is to ask for help. If you feel as if you are unable to go on any longer, it would show strength if you asked for assistance rather than doing nothing. Depression can be a sound reason to ask for some help.

Many people are starting to realize that the food they’ve been feeding their family dogs for years is extremely unhealthy. However, with so many food brands on the store shelves, many consumers have no idea which new food to choose. Add to that confusion, the fact that most dog food manufacturers are using the type of misleading packaging that makes Facebook consumers feel that whatever’s inside must be healthy. Most consumers these days respond to foods and products that look like they can improve their quality of life, make them feel healthier and make them look better. However, just because a dog food package shows romanticized, generic images of health and wellness, doesn’t mean that the product in the package is healthy. However, with a little know how, the best pet products are easy to discern. Beneful, is one of the healthiest pet food brands on store shelves and is available at every major grocery store, WalMart or Dollar General in your area. Beneful’s simple, direct packaging informs consumers, letting you know what the ingredients are and what recipes are recommended for what pet. In many ways, Purina Beneful’s packaging offers the same direct, simplicity a website like Google or Craigslist offers. It’s easy for any pet owner to understand that the food she’s choosing for her pet is full of vitamins, nutrients, natural foods and lean meats. In addition, there are some other pet food brands that owners are finding that their animals enjoy including Blue Buffalo and Freshpet. Blue Buffalo brands also feature simple, easy to understand packaging and a variety of healthy ingredients. You must refrigerate Freshpet foods. However, the CEO of Freshpet actually tastes the Freshpet recipes himself to guarantee that they’re healthy and fresh. One thing to consider though is that, though Freshpet and Blue Buffalo are really good brands, many retailers tend to overprice them. So when it comes to healthy pet food that anyone can afford, typically Beneful is the best option. In addition, Beneful is manufactured by the Purina Company. Purina is planning to merge with Merrick Pet Care, a company that produces organic recipes and features dishes any pet will love with ingredients like Pacific Catch fish and game birds. So, Purina and Beneful are definitely on the cutting edge.
