The digital tech sector is dynamic. This means that to fuel growth businesses need to recruit the right people with the right skills. Hiring can be difficult for two reasons: the nature of the candidates themselves, and, a recruitment process that simply isn’t good enough.

Technology people tend to be either: extroverts who can talk a good game, but often don’t have the skills to back up their claims; or introverts with great skills, but a lack of salesmanship that will get them through the interview process successfully. Resumés and interviews rarely tell the whole story. This dichotomy of resumés and skills makes recruitment in the tech sector extremely difficult.

Loyalty programs have been around for decades and customers continue to enjoy collecting points and anticipating and gaining their rewards.  Over the last five years, to take one example, enrollments in loyalty programs in the US increased by 40%.

Businesses have long realized that a loyalty program is an important aspect of their marketing strategy, particularly for retailers. It’s no surprise that businesses invest heavily in loyalty programs, as these can generate up to 20% of a business’s profits.

However, the industry has stagnated with a large number of look-alike programs causing customer boredom. One primary drawback with current loyalty points is that it takes too long to reach the redemption threshold and the value is too low to excite customers. Despite huge participation and increasing memberships in loyalty programs, customers are generally not satisfied by the way rewards can be redeemed and find it difficult to earn a meaningful reward. Moreover, the current methods of loyalty points exchange are very limited and expensive and there is little opportunity for a customer to pool points for a higher-value redemption.

It’s a common misconception that, when attending court in the UK, one must hire a solicitor or instruct a direct access barrister to progress their case for the desired outcome. However, this is no longer true. Since 2013 with cuts to legal aid and the average person unable to afford to hire expensive legal professionals, a new type of “lawyer” has arisen; the McKenzie Friend and the Paralegal.

But what are they and what are the differences?

If you were to review the past month would you see that you spent a significant amount of time processing tasks manually? Perhaps you spent longer than you would have liked rearranging meetings, chasing customers for payment of outstanding invoices or managing other aspects of your business finances.  It might even find it hard to identify where all your time went!  In circumstances like these, you probably won’t have found time for thinking about the future and developing innovative products or services to take your business forward.

With so many apps on the market and app advisory services offered by professional advisers in your industry, it’s really worthwhile reviewing your current approach and how it can be streamlined to save you time, money and stress.

As 43% of cyber attacks are directed at small businesses there is no question that business owners need to ensure that their businesses are protected.

Cyber attacks are widespread. Consumers are frequently targeted, as are businesses, both large and small. Consumers and micro-businesses may have some protection from the new agreement the banks are signing up to, but, with a recent BBC article saying some banks still haven’t signed up to the voluntary agreement around payment scams, they need to ensure they protect themselves as much as they can.

Although it may surprise you to hear that the retail market is actually growing, you may be less surprised to hear that fast fashion is in decline while premium fashion is on the rise. Customers are becoming more aware of the damaging effects fast, disposable, fashion has on the planet and are opting to spend their money on longer-lasting, premium brands instead.

Fashion consumers are also asking for products that reflect their personalities and say something about who they are. If brands get it right, they can capitalize on the growth in premium fashion, creating a strong brand that stands the test of time.
