Who Comes First: Customers Or Employees?

Facts start with data – but where to find them?

In farm policy, numbers float the pre-reform debate as salmon floats upstream lakes in late autumn. What to make of these numbers though?

How to Ensure the Freshness of Your Supply Chain

Look Around, Recognise, And Celebrate A Job Well Done

Recognition is a fundamental human need. At the most basic level, it makes us feel valued, which is what inspires us to stay all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed at work. Out of all the things that matter in the workplace, helping employees feel appreciated is the most important one. Gladly, this isn’t something that I have learned the hard way.

Τα drones της Google ξεκινάνε το… delivery και αλλάζουν τα logistics

Με μια απόφαση που δυνητικά μπορεί να αλλάξει την παγκόσμια αγορά logistics, η Υπηρεσία Πολιτικής Αεροπορίας των ΗΠΑ έδωσε την έγκρισή της στα drones της Google ώστε να ξεκινήσουν υπηρεσίες delivery σε εμπορική βάση.

Ο διακόπτης της παραγωγικότητας, βρίσκεται δίπλα από το διακόπτη του θερμοσίφωνα!

Το 2020 έρχεται πολύ απαιτητικό, τόσο ως δεκαετία, όσο και ως έτος, για το εργατικό δυναμικό, παγκοσμίως. Ο κόσμος μάλλον θα εργάζεται κατά το ήμισυ των ημερών του μήνα από το σπίτι, και συγκεκριμένα από την τραπεζαρία του σπιτιού του, με την μουσική της αρεσκείας του να ακούγεται σε όλο το δωμάτιο κι όχι απλά σε ένα ζευγάρι ακουστικά.
