Employees in the UK take over 13 million sick days per year as a result of work-related stress, depression, and other mental health issues. Another important statistic is that stress costs the British economy almost £4 billion a year.

Looking after employee wellbeing is clearly of great importance yet REBA (Reward & Employment Benefits Association) reports that only 8% of boards of directors actively drive their company’s wellbeing policy.

When you come back from holiday what do you do with the local currency that you still have in your pocket or purse? There is a good chance that you will put it into a drawer or perhaps a special container and tell yourself that you will use it when you next travel to that country. Some organized people even put the spare cash into carefully labeled envelopes and file them away for future use.

But what happens when you travel abroad again? Quite often you may find yourself at the airport kicking yourself because you have forgotten to bring the spare notes with you. Just when you need them to give a tip to a taxi driver.

When you’re an athlete your sport is a calling, not a job. It is driven by your passion and takes great determination and perseverance for you to succeed.

To build a career or business out of playing your sport, you will need to channel all your passion. The difficulty is keeping things in perspective. It’s a buzz when your training is going well and you are winning, but what happens if you get injured or need to retire early for health reasons?

Those athletes who do not plan for their career after sports often find life really tough. With some careful planning, however, it is possible to build a successful business out of your sports career.

As a professional basketball player, I reached the height of my fame during the 1988 Seoul Summer Olympics when I was just 19 years old. Peaking so early brought me great fame and fortune but it wasn’t enough to set me up for life. If I was going to have a life after sports, I knew I needed to carefully manage my career from day one.

Here are my top tips that I hope will help you to build a business using your sports career as a launchpad to success in a new arena.

In addition to defining what to do, how, and when, business processes are a fundamental part of your company’s culture, expressing who you are, your values, and why you do what you do. By having clear processes and following them rigorously, your business will maintain consistent quality, service and brand experience.

Having said that, processes also need to grow and evolve in response to internal and external pressures. Processes that work for a small startup with a single product won’t work for a medium-sized business with hundreds of employees and a full catalog of products or a large enterprise with multiple offices around the world.

Although for every company it is important to put the client first, it is equally important to make sure your staff is engaged. This means that they feel connected to the company/business and are motivated to do a good job.

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.
