WEBINAR FOR BUSINESS SUCCESS: Your Brand Image Sparkles

Performance Business Design collaborates with companies of less than $10 million to make them as successful as the publicly held corporations we meet with weekly.  We do this by first measuring their business performance using our 12-Area Performance Check.  Publicly held corporations typically score 70%-90% while companies of less than $10 million rarely score above 50%.  We identify the weak areas and, in a series of weekly meetings, collaborate with management to improve them.  The result is better business performance and higher profits.  Our goal is to see performance increase 10% every two months.

Our Webinars for Business Success series describe exactly what we do in client meetings so that you can perform the work on your own, with your own business.  If you would like further information please contact us with your mailing address and we will send you an information package.

Below is a Webinar for Business Success.  Have a great week.

Trump Will Bring Back Business. But will he bring back job?

So let’s presume for the moment that President Trump will cause firms operating overseas to re-establish themselves, or their operations, in the United States.  And let’s suppose, as well, that he mitigates the problem of companies moving to other countries.  He’s apparently going to do this via a combination of lower taxes, tariffs imposed on domestic companies on goods shipped back to America, and finally using moral suasion.  Indeed, we’ve witnessed most of these already during his first two weeks of office (excluding lower taxes).

So, rewind to a smaller level: you were working for one of this companies, they moved overseas, and you lost your job.  You’ll get it back, right?  Let’s look at the facts, thanks to the MIT Technology Review of November 18,2016.  Since 1980,1/3 of manufacturing jobs have been lost.  The employment base has gone from 18 million to 12 million.  So, one might incorrectly assume that if ALL the companies re-located here, we’d get that base near to where it was before.  However, the article points out that for every 25 jobs it took in 1980 to manufacture goods, it now takes 5 jobs.  And, it costs $25 an hour to hire a worker, whereas it only costs $8 an hour to use a robot.

Thus, while bringing back companies is a good thing, it’s not going to help so much to restore lost jobs.  Especially since the loss of jobs due to automation is accelerating, and moving into sectors other than industrial.
