Whether it’s the aftermath of Christmas shopping or generally throughout the year, it’s inevitable that some people will want to return the items they bought or were gifted. But what rights do they have?

Legally, without a receipt you aren’t obliged to give them a refund, but of course you may feel that doing so is worth it for the goodwill. In fact, without a receipt there’s not a lot a customer can do.

But with a receipt it’s an entirely different story. Whether the gift was bought in-store or online, there are some pretty strong and clear consumer rights relating to returns: the 2015 Consumer Rights Act. This Act was updated to provide clearer shopping rights, especially when returning items bought online, including digital downloads.

Around the world environmental concerns are at an all-time high, and business owners want to ensure that they do what they can to reduce their environmental impact of their business.

Businesses can lobby through professional bodies, industry groups etc. for greater action at a national level, but what else can be done to confront the climate crisis by businesses themselves?

Are you scratching your head for a gift idea for someone who travels for work? They probably already have everything they ‘need’ – so a little luxury would be ideal to help them look the part and enjoy their trips more. But you’d like to avoid the hefty price tag?

Here are my some gorgeous gifts that ooze elegance and sophistication. I love them because they are useful and beautiful; each item is made to last and looks fabulous. What’s not to love?

Carry-On

The Carry-On (Asphalt)

$225/£225/€245

This is a practical and cool carry-on suitcase with ejectable battery for charging your devices on the go. Away has reinvented the common carry-on with a limited warranty to last a lifetime – similar to a Swiss made watch. Each suitcase is made of a durable polycarbonate shell with 360 degree spinner wheels, laundry bag and compression system. My personal favorite is the asphalt grey. For essential space saving after a trip, smaller suitcase can fit neatly inside larger suitcases in the range. Unlike other luggage brands, Away oozes travel and is a nice gift that may inspire someone to travel that little bit more.

Rewarding your staff is an excellent way to improve employee motivation, create an appreciative working culture and an atmosphere which improves overall company productivity and employee well-being. Employees who feels appreciated will ALWAYS do more than is expected of them

The culture of business is beginning to change where business owners recognize the need to implement well-being initiatives. This is not just about mindfulness and health, it is also about recognition and reward.

Technological innovation leads to new business models and industries are leveraging digital technologies to develop new platform-based business models where the platforms act as enablers.

The emerging platform strategies promise to provide unprecedented scale, speed, and global reach. These can build the foundation for unleashing new market opportunities from system management to data collection to gather deep consumer insights. We have seen platform model underlying the success of many biggest and fast-growing companies such as the global tech giants like Amazon, Google, Alibaba and companies like Uber, Airbnb, eBay, KAYAK. These are simply the platforms on which products and services are built and supplied. But not a product or a service itself.

Ever had to pack so many shoes in your suitcase that you’ve struggled to fit everything else in? Shoes for meetings, for exploring the city, for a relaxed dinner, an evening event with clients… so many activities, so many different shoes required.

Well, we’ve set out to solve that problem – with a new shoe, called Flite, from Seven Feet Apart. I like my shoes to be comfy, but I also like them to work with a variety of outfits (business to casual), and they have to be lightweight and easy to pack.

You and your team will be creating a large amount of data every week ranging from invoicing data to Photoshop images. It may be hard to imagine how your business would cope if a critical failure meant you lost all or even some of this data.

Recovering individual documents, such as a Microsoft Word file, when your PC crashes is much easier than it used to be, with the advent of functions such as Autorecover1. Other software applications have similar functionality, such as Autosave within Photoshop2. But these won’t recover large numbers of documents if your business experiences a backup failure or a major flood or fire.
