Hotel 25 Improvements How To Succeed In Hotel Industry

by como ·

Movement is life. This principle is true for business as well. Every business must develop otherwise it will fail sooner or later. Loss of competitive advantage results in loss of customers. There is a tough competition in all markets, and customers of free to choose any products they like. If a customer is not buying from you it will most certainly buy from your competitor. This is true for all businesses, including hotel business. This industry is highly competitive as there are hundreds of hotels in every country. When high season comes hotel top managers do everything possible to attract customers and make them stay in their hotels. Of course, they do not only promise high quality services but the actually offer them. Hotel is not just a place where you spend the night. Some people want to feel at home in a hotel. This is possible in case you come to a top quality hotel.

In order to improve hotel services owners and managers of our hotel need to know where to start from. In other words they have to be aware of current performance in order to make plans for the future. Until recently performance evaluation was about measurement of financial indicators for the past periods. Such approach is not perfect since it misses nonfinancial indicators that are extremely important in any industry. It is not enough just to announce implementation of new plans and improvements in hotel. A real work begins when these improvements are implemented and measured.

For example, if a new service, say, WiFi connection in all rooms is introduced the hotel spends a certain amount of money to buy equipment and maintain network. Then, the quality of Wireless Network has to be evaluated. However, what is more important is the attitude of customers towards this new service and the way they use it. If it turns out that only 10% of hotel guests actually use wireless network and only half of them really require high speed Internet there is probably no point in spending huge money for super speedy Internet. If most of hotel guests are business people for whom high speed Internet is necessity than well established wireless connection is a must.

If improvements concern reception service top management of a hotel needs to understand who their guests are and why they come to their hotel. If most of them are tourists than it would be reasonable to introduce new services like offering information on sightseeing tours, contact details of various Entertainment Services, taxi phone numbers etc. As time passes by, efficiency of these improvements needs to be tested in order to introduce amendments if necessary.

Such evaluation of improvements can be performed with the help of Balanced Scorecard which is a very efficient performance evaluation and strategic management system. Balanced Scorecard will coordinate efforts of all services and business units of a hotel and align strategies of different departments, for example restaurants and hairdressers service. This is a flexible system which means changes can be easily introduced.

An Overview Of The Paper Industry In India

by como ·

The paper industry is one of the leading and prominent industries in India. The industry is among the highest contributor of revenue to the country. It also provides employment to more than 1.5 million people and is considered to be a developing industry. Paper products have been in constant demand during the past several decades which has led to the further growth of the industry in many ways.

Various types of paper products are used in many ways including bags, cups, plates, books, envelopes and so forth. The availability of raw materials is one of the most important factors that concern the paper industry. With the growing destruction of forests, authentic raw materials are becoming scarce which has led to the increased import of raw materials from neighbouring countries.

The Growth of Paper Industry in India

Due to the wide spread demand for paper products, non conventional methods are utilised for producing different types of raw materials required for the production of paper. The paper industry is now further identified as three types mainly the agro based, forest based and other varieties such as waste materials, market pulp and fibre.

Today the paper industry has around 515 units which manufacture various types of paper products. The Indian industry is the fifteenth largest industry in the world. The high costs of production, concentration of industries in one place are the various bottlenecks of this industry.

The paper industry has also witnessed a considerable demand for products with the shift in consumer behavioural patterns. The use of plastics has declined considerably due to many health and environmental issues. This has in turn increased the consumption of different types of paper products such as stationery items, photo frames, kites, magazines, bank notes, catalogs, playing cards, tissue paper, albums and directories.

Different types of products can also be made with the use of recycled raw materials. Today the process of using recycled raw materials for the manufacture of various paper products are encouraged to reduce the ill-effects of deforestation. Waste materials such as rags, jute, cotton and straw is used for manufacturing various types of products.

The paper industry also utilises hand made paper which is quite popular in the country. Known to provide employment to more than thousands in the rural areas, the industry is a major source of employment. The hand made paper is durable and lasts longer. It can be used to manufacture various types of handmade materials.

Today the government has introduced several policies to support the paper industry. Better manufacturing technologies, reduction in the import duties and production cost, availability of better raw materials are some of the measures taken by the government to improve the production of paper products.

In spite of facing several challenges, the industry has attained considerable growth in different parts of the country. Paper importers have known to import raw materials only for specific types of paper. Today there are a number of industries that manufacture paper and are known to be the leading industries of the country.

Console Wars. Competition Between Leaders Of Video Gaming Industry

by como ·

Console Wars is today a widely recognised phrase referring to the un-tracked battle between major video game consoles, which typically occurs every four or five years when a new ‘generation’ of games consoles are released by the industry leaders, which today are Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo – in no particular order.

The history of console wars is by no means brief, with the first of note being competed way back in the early 1980’s between the Intellivision and the Colecovision, and by all accounts, the Colecovision came out on top in that particular head-to-head selling half a million units, largely thanks to it’s licensing of popular arcade games from the time. If a video games console sold half a million units today, though, it would be a complete failure and would perhaps even go by un-noticed by the developed world’s hordes of gaming enthusiasts.

The growth of the video games industry has been so rapid that the top consoles of today, the XBox 360, Playstation 3 and the Nintendo Wii sell in multiple-millions across the world – with the main video gaming markets being North America, Japan, Europe and Australia.

Microsoft, despite being new-boys in the video game console market with the XBox 360 being only their second venture into it, have already established a firm fanbase of millions all over the world thanks to the success of the original XBox console. One of the main features that the XBox introduced to the console games market was the first online gaming community with any real feeling of value. XBox Live, the online gaming service of the XBox and now the XBox 360 too, was far superior to the Playstation Network – the Playstation 2 equivalent online service.

Microsoft of course have no lack of funds, and they gave the launch of the XBox console and indeed the XBox 360 console a huge kickstart by securing exclusive titles which proved a huge success. Notably games from the Grand Theft Auto and Halo games series.

The Playstation 3, although very powerful, has so far been living off the reputation established by the Playstation and Playstation 2, as it brings nothing to the industry which the XBox 360 and Nintendo Wii don’t offer also. Metal Gear Solid 4 alone, has infact been a major selling point of the console for many gamers – as it’s not available on the XBox 360 or Nintendo Wii consoles.

The Nintendo Wii is without doubt the most refreshing addition to the video games industry for quite some time, bringing a new perspective into gaming that has never before been explored, and it aims to get a stranglehold on the growing audience of lifestyle-aware gamers. Ultimately the Nintendo Wii gets gamers moving with it’s new motion sensitive control system and thanks to the many peripherals which the controller connects to, the possibilities that open up to you within Nintendo Wii games seem endless.

The only real exclusive titles worth mentioning to the Nintendo Wii, as with previous consoles, are those starring the companies legendary gaming mascot, Mario, such as Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Mario Kart Wii.

The difference in graphical power behind the XBox 360, Playstation 3 and Nintendo Wii consoles is minimal and the game support for all three consoles is like never before ensuring all three have thrived alongside one another and continue to do so. There will be no clear winner in the current console war, as unlike in those gone by, most gamers find themselves loving two of the major consoles, if not all three! It’s no longer a “fan-boy” industry where everyone has their favourite, which can only be good news for the future of video gaming which has already grown at a faster rate than ever before in recent years.

Value addition in the Indian food industry Ushering in a new Era

by como ·

India, a subtropical country with varied agro-climatic conditions, is suited for the growth of varied fruits, vegetables and spices which form an integral part of the food of Indian households. The country has enjoyed enviable position in the world in the growth of many agricultural commodities. The Indian food has always been cooked in the aromas of Indian spices which are good for health, add to the taste and provide richness to it recipes.

There is a perceptible change in the way food lands up in our homes for being eaten. This change has been due to the impetus given to the growth of the agro-processing units which convert the raw food materials into processed and semi-processed foods, ready to be eaten by the people with a few minutes of preparation. This value addition in the form of packaged foods has led to some diversion of the raw materials from the markets to the industries.

This value addition has made things a lot simpler for the people who no longer have to first accumulate all the ingredients including the common table salt and then wait for the food to be cooked. This has also introduced more variety in the Indian food market, giving more choices of delicious cuisines to the consumers. The earlier versions of the packed food available in the markets were the spice blends in the form of the famous chat masala. The recent movements are not confined to the spice blends only but these are now moving towards the agro-commodities offering the ready-to-eat recipes of delicious cuisines.

The packed food is long lasting. Suitable preservatives and the climate control features of the store give it a longer shelf life than the raw or the cooked food. Further, the food can be made ready for eating within minutes. So, you can have the instant drink in the form of tea or coffee ready within minutes. Another important feature of these value added foods is that there are well defined quality norms which make this food retain its nutritional and health value. The industries are governed by the relevant laws and all the operations take place is a totally hygienic environment with full quality control measures in place. What you get in the end is a quality product having all ingredients in definite proportions and with a standard and unique taste of its own.

Earlier, the type of food which was most commonly launched in the packed form was the snacks items or the so called junk food, such as noodles. However, there has been a shift. Now, the focus of agro-processed food is turning to the main course foods as well as the desserts and the instant drink. Further, there has been an increase in the number and variety of these processed products. There has also been a growth in the number of brands available in the market. With consumers liking these products, there are likely to be many more additions in the product range in the near future.

The fiery development of the Raymond mill industry

by como ·

With the increasing support of national policy for the infrastructure construction, as well as the project implementation, such as turn the old building into new, build high-speed railway and highway and the project of western development, the demand of raymond mill market continues to increase, which promotes the fiery development of the mining machinery industry.
As the most important part of machinery manufacturing, mining machinery is an important support in national economy. With the rapid development of economic globalization, how to develop the mining machinery industry in China, and what is the developing direction of mining machinery industry?
At present, there are many problems in the development of Chinese mining machinery industry, for example, the comprehensive strength is not strong, the foundation of science and technology is weak, the quality of products is poor, and so on. These problems make the development of Chinese mining machinery slow. Therefore, making independent innovation and technology development is not only the best way for the development of mining machinery industry, but also the key of the key of the development of Chinese mining machinery industry, which can make Chinese mining machinery industry be more suitable for the change of current economic developing pattern. And the developing direction of Chinese mining machinery industry is intellectualization, digitalization and bigness.
Green initiative and low-carbon lifestyle has become the main theme of current world development. All trades and professions develop the circular economy based on the low-carbon environment protection to take a sustainable development strategy. The production and development of the Crusher industry, even the whole mining machinery industry needs to comply with this rule. The enterprises should not only improve the product quality and the production efficiency, but also pay attention to the how to reduce the energy consumption and the environmental pollution, do their best to make green production to realize sustainable development.
In addition, with the strengthening of exploitation of mineral resources in Africa and Southeast Asia, as well as EU countries gradually pay more attention to the mineral development, the export quantity of Chinese crusher becomes larger and larger. Although the overall competitiveness can not compete with the developed countries, the developing potential is strong enough. That is to say, the Chinese crusher enterprises will have a bright future.
Facing with such great opportunity of development, in order to expand the market share, the competition among crusher enterprises is fiercer and fiercer. This situation forces many crusher enterprises to adjust industrial structure, and pay more attention to the technological innovation to improve their strength. >

Returning to Work in the Retail Sector

by como ·

Being involved in the retail industry is often a job by default. You start off in a casual or part time position when you turn 16, excited by your first job earning money of your own. Then it’s time for University. But how many people don’t make it that far? Sometimes the opportunity isn’t there for gaining a degree. Whatever the reasons, retail has many success’s in people starting as youngsters and working their way up through the ranks to become CEO, a worthy title to claim. The reasons people start off and stay in retail vary from convenience of knowing the role to being able to work part time suiting children once they’ve had families, It also come with opportunities through trainee program, gaining experience and education all the while being paid for it. When the crunch of losing a job you’ve spent years training for comes, it’s often retail, what some consider a lower level of employment, you return to. Yet retail has an unfair reputation as it sustains millions of people world wide and is one of the most reliable forms of income. Hours in retail may come and go like every other industry but if you look at statistics from Wal-Mart, you’ll understand, based on one company alone, how retail has it’s place in society as stable employment.

Maybe you’ve lost your job, lost your nerve as a return to work applicant, or think you haven’t got the skills it takes to apply for an advertised position. I spoke to a friend who is a Regional Manager in a large company and asked him what advice he would give to those trying to return to work……. Suzanne Beck

The first step for anyone returning back into the work force is to realize that they can add great value to the potential employer even that may not have had recent physical working experience but they have through there own experiences organised, managed other areas of there life and generally they come more balanced, opened minded, non re active and adaptive to the current work place because of these experiences.

In preparation the interviewee needs to think of the following.

-Coming prepared and confident and never assume that they are not good enough for the job as you can never judge or know what they may be looking for

-What they can bring to the job they are interviewing for

-What they are looking for from the employment

Do research on the company by internet but more important were possible in person. (Nothing better than showing you have gone to the workplace)

-Think of the job or role they are going for and bring examples from there experience that can translate. For example a role of the job may be giving instructions to a staff member and translate that to something you have done in your personal life with either kids, community groups or even an event you may have held at home.

At the interview

-Personal presentation is very important but your body signals, attitude and energy levels tell an interviewer more.

-Keep on track and try an answer clearly and concise. If you feel you have not answered the question confirm with the interviewer.

– Be honest when unsure of a question

-Always have questions to ask the interviewer relevant to role

-Try and give confidence to the interviewer that you have long term plans within the role and or company

In my experience of interviewing for staff at all levels of the business the main thing I am looking for is how is this person going to fit into my team and what is the real person like I am talking to. It is not always experience. That is were some people make the mistake when they assume to know what I’m looking for and answer how they think I want to hear the answers. Thinking that to get the job you must have had done the job before and must be experienced in the field. Keep in mind building a team takes all personalities, ages and you may have exactly what is needed for the team you are about to join. If I can not see who you are outside the interview it makes the decision on hiring a lot harder.

I know this is easy for me to say, but just let a bit of your personality show and ensure you talk about yourself not just answering the standard questions. Add words like from my experience, I would, I like and this can open up to a more relaxing discussion and can break down some interview barriers.

I find applicants returning back into the workforce from long periods generally have strong work ethics and if given a chance are long term employees and very productive within the team. They are open minded and always receptive to new ideas and direction. They don’t come with a attitude of I know everything. All you need to do is show that in the interview and more likely the job could be yours.

The Muffin Top Mystery – It’s A Crazy World

by como ·

This is a crazy world. We’re stuck in the middle of a pop culture that is addicted to everything. It’s almost the norm, even fashionable, to list “Rehab” on a resume. Corporate America is full of existential, relativistic MBA’s who only care about living in the moment with no boundaries because everything is relevant.

So we have a food industry that intends to get us hooked on eating for the answer while simultaneously we are trying to emulate the stars in the entertainment industry who eat nothing or gets lots of surgery. So, on the one hand, “eat” but on the other hand “don’t get fat”.

Bring all of these good well meaning fat folks into some sort of diet regimen and all hell breaks loose. We’ve grown up with the “have it your own way…NOW” message. Problem is we don’t have the right code written into our DNA which allows us to eat any-thing, any-time, in any-amount and not end up with a muffin top.

MUFFIN TOP…HOW DO WE GET RID OF THE MUFFIN TOP?

To say we need to change our paradigm is an understatement. We need to change everything! I’m not against the sprinkle your food thing, or the spray your food thing, or the pop a pill thing, or the juice thing, or,or,or,or,or???? There no end to the diet “thing”. There’s no end to the problem of media, and culture, pulling us to and fro, while trying to find some truth and balance somewhere that can set us free.

There are scientific breakthroughs which can help us with the biggest enemy of our muffin tops: SUGAR. Sugar, sugar, sugar, – it’s everywhere, so great a problem is it that the sugar substitute industry alone is worth nearly 14 Billion dollars and most of those substitutes actually cause people to gain weight.

One has to have one’s wits about oneself when one is researching “scientific breakthroughs” that have to do with glucose control. Start here if you’re seeking wisdom.

Purchase nothing that offers Quick Results. Purchase nothing that you can’t document “offline”. Purchase nothing that sells sizzle more than steak.

But don’t give up…this is not only the worst of times to get rid of a muffin top but the best of times to get rid of and keep rid of a muffin top. Science is accelerating at an amazing pace to meet the demands of a ONE TRILLION DOLLAR Wellness Industry. There are amazing breakthroughs in weight loss.

All we need is to be pointed in the right direction and that is not a diet. Nor is it just trying to eat healthy and exercise a ton.

IT’S ABOUT SUGAR! LEARN ALL THAT YOU CAN ABOUT SUGAR!! FIND OUT HOW TO MANAGE SUGAR…PERIOD!

Strong stuff huh? You need to get the whole story. Read the NEW YOU REPORT. We may not have found the only way. It’s a big world out there. (Some project that all the world’s current data will grow 50X in the next decade)

But after kicking this can around for many years we can point you in one direction that is documented, (offline) peer reviewed, clinically tested and patent pending. A breakthrough in glucose control discovered by real PhD’s not those guys that took the correspondence course on the internet, and I’m sure you know what I mean. Everybody’s an expert on the internet.

You and I need to be our own best advocates and it’s not that difficult to do. All we need is the courage to ask all the questions, accept nothing without proof, and rely on something more than what we see on a screen…remember, common sense? It’s still alive and well.

So take some action and Judge for Yourself. Get the FREE NEW YOU Report.

How to Stop the Logging Industry from Losing its Youthful Appeal!

by como ·

People have many assumptions about the status of the logging industry. This could be due to the number of layoffs in the industry resulting from the economic downturn of the past few years. It is difficult to get exact information about the number of people who have lost their jobs because of the recession. This has created big differences between the number of people terminated and those that are being recruited. Moreover, it is undeniable that there are many problems in the logging industry that have caused a critical situation to exist.

Worker Enticements

In spite of this ongoing crisis, the logging industry is attempting to find creative ways to make it more enticing and appealing. In fact, future projections in Washington are expected to show progress being made, which is quite the opposite of what had been projected. The effort of logging companies to cope with the recession is actually praiseworthy and the annual revenue of the logging industry is reaching billions of dollars. To be exact, Atlanta is making $28 billion annually.

Common Problems

Some of the more common problems that are encountered by many workers when applying for jobs within the logging industry include the monthly salary, insurance premiums, health benefits, retirement packages, and compensation packages. On top of this, most potential employees have the impression that this is not a lucrative field in which to earn a good salary; yet the fact is that some logging companies are booming and will continue to grow in the global market.

There is also the problem of the effect of testing for drug abuse. For whatever reason, drug testing in this industry is putting a heavy price tag on keeping a reliable workforce. Contractors are finding it increasingly difficult to retain employees due to this one issue. On the plus side, those companies and contractors that enforce a drug-free workforce will pay reduced worker compensation premiums.

Increased Core Compensation

Five years ago, new employees shied away from applying for jobs in the logging industry because they were required to pay for certification programs and training for safety awareness just to work with forestry equipment without receiving any type of compensation for those incurred expenses. Additionally, the wages were rather low. The annual mean salary for a typical logger in United States ranges from $30,260 to $33,269.

Currently, the anticipated yearly salary for all logger jobs is expected to increase due to the tight competition in the global arena. The core annual compensation amount could reach up to $50,041 per employee. Core compensation includes: base salary; social security; 401K/403B plans; disability insurance; healthcare insurance; pension; and paid time off.

The logging industry has been clouded with negative notions brought on by the economic recession and the future remains uncertain for this particular business. Perceptions have existed that this was an unstable working environment because the monthly salary was low with minimal benefits and too many requirements to be certified to do this work. This type of business is losing its appeal because of the upswing battle against the global market. Yet, due to new regulations, strategies, employee benefits, innovations such as bio-fuels and better forestry equipment, working in the logging industry has become more appealing. This can only hope to give the logging industry a brighter future!

The Evolution of the Online Interior Design Industry

by como ·

Theres just one thing online interior designer entrepreneurs like me love more than cupcakes and thats being at the vanguard of the evolution of an entire industry.

Every industry has had its challenges when it comes to evolving to better serve its customers online. Many industries struggle with piracy, others with delivery and logistics. My industry, residential interior design, has struggled to evolve its cost-to-serve model toward something that is attractive to more than just the wealthiest one percent of Americans.

When I launched online interior design website HMDhome.com six years ago the first sightings of my online interior designer competition could be found buried on page eight of a Google search in the form of a website selling “design in a box”. “Design in a box” consisted of the client completing a rudimentary online form (inclusive of room dimensions and style questions) and paying $800 via PayPal to an interior designer hundreds of miles away whom theyd never get to speak to, let alone develop a relationship with. Six to eight weeks later a large hat box was to be delivered full of a very carefully curated selection fabric samples, paint chips, furniture plan drawing and a shopping list of furniture, lighting and decorative accessories.

Admirable in its presentation quality the design in a box as a product was extremely beautifully prepared however as a business model it was doomed to fail for three reasons. It was an impersonal transaction in an industry that requires consultative collaboration. It was technically an improperly curated catalog because it represented what the designer had to offer, not what the client ultimately purchased for their interior design project. Finally, for the typical homeowner it was expensive. At this price point the interior designer wasnt expanding the overall interior design client base to a broader market and I suspect they failed to convert a meaningful number of home owners to online interior design in the process.

Today, home owners planning a home renovation or remodeling project can get tremendous value from online interior design services at a fraction of the cost of the original design in a box. Virtual services include ongoing consultation with a designer, specifications for colors, furniture, fixtures and finishes and access to exclusive designer discounts from popular retailers and trade sources.

Let me bore you for just a moment with some important statistics about the highly fragmented residential interior design industry relevant to its potential future online evolution.

A May 2011 report by the Bureau of Labor and Statistics indicated there are 40,950 interior designers in the US inclusive of all disciplines (residential, hospitality, corporate, restaurant and specialty). A minority of these professionals are expected to be localized residential interior designers serving fewer than 1% of US households with a traditional cost to serve model made up of hourly design fees and/or extra-retail product mark-ups.

The most significant barrier between interior designers and millions of potential new customers is the structure of the current interior design cost-to-serve model which is prohibitive for all but the wealthiest Americans.

According to a 2010 household income report from the US Census Bureau 8.4% of households earn in excess of $150K per year. While 90.2% of these were owner occupied as of two years ago, its estimated that 7.8 million households representing a potential prime demographic for online interior designers have never before consulted with an interior designer.

With a lean six sigma black belt on staff at
Homemade Design Corporation (HMD) you can bet we collect and analyze key client data related to our online interior design firm. For example, 89.6% of approximately 954 current HMD clients report having never hired a designer before working with Homemade Design. Among the primary reasons given for not previously having hired an interior designer is the perception that hiring an interior designer will increase overall project costs.

Yes, wealthy homeowners in the Hamptons may enjoy bragging about how much theyve spent as they sip champagne at the polo match. However, for the online interior design industry to evolve toward delighting a greater number of interior design clients we must enable them to brag about how much they have saved.

China Steel Industry – Overview, Trends, Prospects And Swot Analysis

by como ·

Emerging Markets Direct (EMD) announced the release of their latest China Steel Industry Report 2H10. It states that China ranked number one in crude steel production (reaches 567.8 million metric tons) again in 2009, which is 13.5% higher than previous year and sharing 46.3% of the world’s total.

The report first profiles the China Steel Industry.Driven by China’s economic development, production of steel reached 426.6 million tons as of August 2010, and is expected to reach 640 million tons for the full year. Finished steel products also increased significantly, EMD outlines the growth scenario of finished steel products, out of which heavy rail track material has an impressive growth of 52.8%.

The Chinese industry is highly fragmented with approximately 800 steel mills, majority state-owned in nature. EMD lists out the production by province out of which Hebei province comes first among other Chinese provinces (22% of total China production).

The EMD report then covers market trends and outlook. The Chinese government introduced measures to curb the over-heated property market in August 2010. According to our report, China’s steel consumption is expected to decelerate in 2011. As the no.1 steel importing country, what will be the impact? EMD gives you an overview of the import numbers and steel price.
It also provides a discussion on the export market. In 2009, China fell from no.1 to no.4 in the export of steel product. Exports rose by 153% YoY in the first half of 2010 due to the revival of the marco-economic condition. With the removal of tax rebates on certain steal products in July, will exports still increase in the coming months? What is the impact of China exports on other ASEAN countries?

What are the prospects of the China steel sector? What is the outlook for steel price? How does the performance differ between Chinese and non-Chinese steel producers? What are the factors leading to the difference in their EBITDA? The China Steel Industry report gives you the background to answer these questions.

Finally, it describes the competitive landscape and leading players of the industry. The China Steel Industry report provides basic company profile, history, financial highlights, performance data, recent development and SWOT analysis of Shanghai Baosteel Group Corporation, Baosteel Co. Ltd, Anshan Iron & Steel Group, Angang Steel Company Ltd., Wuhan Iron & Steel Group, Hebei Iron & Steel Group Company Ltd.
