The 7 critical company values that matter for 2021, 2022, 2023 and beyond…

There are 7 critical company values that matter in 2021, 2022 and beyond.

2020 was a year like no other, at least in our lifetimes.

The global economy was brought to its knees as businesses were forced to closed or make lots of changes, supply chains saw major disruptions and stay-at-home orders and lockdowns were issued everywhere.

In times like these, the companies that survive and/or even thrive amongst the chaos, are the companies whose foundations and cultures are positive and strong, with resilience built into their very ethos, structures and cultures!

So let’s take a look into the seven levels of organisational consciousness which can be incorporated into company culture during a pandemic or additional global crisis of that magnitude.

Level One: Survival

This the most basic of company values or level of organisational consciousness. It is at the bottom of the consciousness ladder but that doesn’t mean that this level isn’t necessary; in fact, far from it!

In a pandemic, survival is critical, and companies must implement strategies which help the organisation to be stable financially and create shareholder value despite the ongoing chaos.

Level Two: Relationships

Particularly during a pandemic, companies need to foster a culture in which employees and clients feel loyal to the organisation since it takes care of their needs.

For example, the company can offer paid sick leave/enhanced medical insurance to those taken ill and the firm can also renegotiate payment terms with its customers who are struggling to meet their commitments due to the effects of the pandemic.

A company’s biggest assets are its people (both employees and customers), and aiming to create strong relationships with these people will almost guarantee the survival and success of the company.

Level Three: Self-Esteem

The next value up the ladder is self-esteem. Organisations seeking to navigate the challenges presented by the ongoing pandemic need to establish structures and procedures that bring order to the organisation and make it possible for performance to improve.

For example, a streamlined travel policy that spells out which specific safety measures employees need to take and how they can get help quickly in case of emergency may bump up productivity among employees whose roles require them to travel frequently. Avoid confusion and unnecessary bureaucracy at all costs.

Level Four: Transformation

This core value facilitates improvement and innovation among employees. A company culture which encourages adaptability as well as continuous improvement encourages an environment where employees can participate in decision making. When employees are given a voice, their loyalty and engagement shoot up, and the organisation is the net winner.

Level Five: Internal Cohesion

During a pandemic, companies need to focus on shared values and an inspiring vision which can bring together the motivations of every team member, with those of the organisation. When everyone is pulling in the same direction (as opposed to each team only caring about what happens in their team or department), performance, creativity, integrity and commitment can really increase exponentially, with a compound effective.

This can be the best position to take when facing a pandemic or any major crisis!

Level Six: Making a Difference

This penultimate value entails building mutually beneficial alliances with other entities or groups as well as with the community.

For example, the company culture can enable the creation of opportunities to support local hospitals or soup kitchens using a fraction of the profits earned by the company.

The company can also nurture alliances with other organisations in which each firm is a client of the other’s products or services, and all parties contribute to the community.

As the organisation commits to a bigger purpose, internal cohesion will deepen.

Level Seven: Service

This is the highest value that an organisation can have, especially during a pandemic. At this level, everyone in the organisation recognises that they are part of everything around them. They therefore strive to make a positive contribution towards creating a better planet and humanity in general.

In a pandemic, the importance of this value in a company culture is all too apparent; who will buy your products if everyone is sick or dies and yet you have the capacity to prevent or minimise the impact of the pandemic?

Companies that survive and even thrive, tend to operate at this level of consciousness, and it no longer matters who is at the helm. The system lives and breathes service, so there is no choice but for everyone to go along with it!

As you rebuild your company after the shocks of 2020 and a significant part of 2021, or as you seek a fresh start in a new company, take a close look at how you can apply the seven values above in the culture of your company.

These aspects of a company culture will not only ensure you breeze through the pandemic, but you will be on your way to building a lasting legacy!

Budget 2021, Shops, restaurants and bars and gyms have been given a financial boost in the Budget…

Budget 2021 News:

Shops, restaurants and bars and gyms in England which have been badly hit by the Covid-19 pandemic have been given a financial boost in the Budget.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak announced a temporary 50% cut in their business rates, up to a maximum of £110,000.

In addition, he has scrapped 2022’s planned annual increase in rates for all firms for the second year in a row.

The hospitality industry welcomed the move, although it added “the devil will be in the detail”.

Business rates are charged on commercial premises based on the value of the property and the level is set by central government, rather than councils. They are devolved across the UK’s nations.

The Treasury only decides business rates in England, but the UK government also allocates funding to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland through a formula.

This could allow the devolved nations to mirror the changes in England or, alternatively, keep their current business rates and spend the money elsewhere.

Bricks and mortar firms have long complained that they are at an unfair disadvantage compared with online retailers, which do not have to pay business rates. They want to see an online sales tax being applied.

In his Budget speech, Mr Sunak said that in the 2022-23 tax year, pubs, music venues, cinemas, restaurants, hotels, theatres and gyms would be able to claim a discount on their bills of 50%, up to a maximum of £110,000. He said that was a tax cut worth almost £1.7bn.

In conjunction with the existing Small Business Rates Relief, the chancellor said the move meant more than 90% of all retail, hospitality and leisure businesses would see a discount of at least 50%.

Business rates in the retail and leisure sectors have already been reduced during the present financial year following the rates holiday during the pandemic.

Economy set to hit pre-Covid level at end of year

Eight ways the Budget affects you and your money

Taxes cut on sparkling wine and draught beer

The Treasury has been carrying out a wider review of business rates.

In his Budget speech, Mr Sunak confirmed they would be retained and reformed. “We on this side of the House are clear that reckless, unfunded promises to abolish a tax which raises £25bn every year are completely irresponsible.”

However, he said the system would be made “fairer and timelier with more frequent revaluations every three years”. beginning in 2023.

In addition, from 2023, all firms, not just in retail and hospitality, would be able to make improvements to their property without having to pay extra business rates for 12 months.

The reforms also include a new relief for firms that invest in green technologies, such as solar panels and heat pumps.

‘Incredibly fragile’

UK Hospitality chief executive Kate Nicholls: “We have been lobbying hard for significant reform of the outdated business rates system and therefore very much welcome the chancellor’s move today to extend the 50% business rates relief for the hospitality and leisure sector for the next financial year.

“The devil will be in the detail, though, so we look forward to learning to what extent it will benefit businesses.”

Ms Nicholls also said announcements simplifying, and in some cases cutting, alcohol duties were “great news” for pubs, bars and restaurants and “will benefit all”.

However, she added: “Positive as these announcements are, hospitality remains incredibly fragile, facing myriad critical issues. Rising utility bills, wage bills and food and drink prices have resulted in 13% inflationary costs that businesses are having to absorb at the same time as they navigate severe supply chain issues and chronic staff shortages.

“Given this toxic cocktail, it is imperative the government go further to support businesses in our sector.”

She said the best way to do that would be to keep the current lower rate of 12.5% VAT on hospitality.

“The chancellor has been bold and radical with alcohol duty – we urge him to adopt the same approach when implementing root and branch reform of business rates, to ensure industries share the burden equally.”

Elsewhere, the director general of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), Shevaun Haviland, said the chancellor had listened to the BCC’s “long-standing calls for changes to the business rates system and this will be good news for many firms”.

“It will provide much-needed relief for businesses across the country, giving many firms renewed confidence to invest and grow.”

CBI director general Tony Danker said the chancellor had made “real strides in making the system more palatable for businesses in the shorter term. More frequent valuations, wider reliefs and improving the incentives for firms to decarbonise their premises is what firms have been calling for”.

However, he added that the “hard truth” was that “the government missed the opportunity to truly reform a business rates system that diminishes Britain’s high streets and factories”.

Julian Bird, chief executive of Society of London Theatre and UK Theatre, welcomed the move, saying it would “provide venue operators with the cushion of a lower cost base as they reopen and develop an audience post-pandemic.

“The 100% improvement relief for business rates, providing 12 months relief from higher bills for occupiers where eligible improvements to an existing property increase the rateable value, from 2023 will encourage innovation and enhancement of our theatre buildings,” he added.

Benefit from The Power of Residual Income!

The You Economy is the New Economy

The best part? You can earn a percentage of your customers’ bills month after month, year after year as long as they remain an ACN customer or for the term of their agreement. And every time you acquire a new customer or help an existing customer add a new service, you give yourself a raise. That’s called residual income!

And that’s really just the beginning. When you introduce others to ACN and show them how to get their own customers, you earn residual income from those people’s bills as well. That means for every customer they acquire through their ACN Online Shop, not only does their monthly residual income grow, so does yours.

Whether it starts out as just enough to pay a few bills each month – or over time grows to provide a level of financial security most people only dream about – residual income can and will enhance your life.

Your Ideas. Your Design. Your Life.

Internet. Energy. Wireless. What if we told you these essential services could be a step to building the life you’d love to live?

30 Women-Owned Vegan Businesses in 2021, 2022, 2023, 2024, 2025 and beyond- Top Vegan Businesses – #BizNews

30 WOMEN-OWNED VEGAN BUSINESSES TO SUPPORT TODAY
These badass, sustainably focused, plant-based, innovative companies are changing the world one compassionate product at a time.

It’s time we put our money where our mouths are and support women entrepreneurs and innovators. Female-led companies don’t receive the same consideration as male-led businesses, receiving just 16 percent of business loans, despite employing over 8.4 million workers and generating $264 billion in payroll. These women-owned vegan companies are changing the game with compassionate, eco-friendly, and cruelty-free products, and we couldn’t be more excited to support them along the way. 

@oseamalibu/Instagram

1. OSEA Malibu

Founded by mother Jenefer and run by her oldest daughter Melissa Palmer as CEO, this sustainably focused, non-toxic, glass bottled skincare line utilizes the healing benefits of seaweed to provide natural products for conscious consumers. We’re absolutely obsessed with their gorgeous and calming Venice Beach-based skincare studio for facials and more.

2. Miyoko’s Creamery

From making incredible, award-winning cashew-based cheese wheels; to running a micro-sanctuary; to fighting off legislation trying to prevent her from using the words “butter” and “cheese” on her plant-based products; to traveling the country in a food truck giving out free vegan grilled cheese sandwiches, is there anything this powerhouse can’t do?

5. The Naughty Cookie

If you haven’t had these gooey, fully loaded with chocolate chunks, plant-based cookies by owner and baker Jessica Motes … you’re definitely missing out.

Moms Nicole Cardone and Deborah Gorman helm this plant-based sorbet company that’s been putting its own spin on dairy-free pints for more than seven years.

Your Ideas. Your Design. Your Life.

Internet. Energy. Wireless. What if we told you these essential services could be a step to building the life you’d love to live?

Start your Business Now – https://homebasedglobalbusiness.acnibo.com/gb-en/

ACN Opportunity

Simply put, ACN provides you with opportunity. The opportunity to own a home-based business without the large investment or risk most entrepreneurs have to make, and with the total support of ACN behind you every step of the way.

At ACN, Independent Business Owners (IBOs) simply offer the services that people are already using and spending money on every day, including Mobile, Energy, Broadband, TV and Security.

So there’s no change in buying habits, and you’ll never have to convince someone to purchase services they don’t need or can’t afford.

All you do is direct people to your personal ACN Online Shop – provided and hosted by ACN – and ACN takes care of the rest.

Why ACN?

We are Opportunity, Success, Integrity, Vision and Ambition

The You Economy is the New Economy

With ACN, you don’t sell trendy widgets or budget-busting services. ACN focuses on essential services that people already use and pay for.

When someone becomes a new customer and pays their bills, you get paid every month, month after month, for as long as they remain on the service – or for the term of their agreement. That’s residual income. Plus, every time you acquire a new customer or help an existing customer add a service, you give yourself a raise.

Some companies spend millions advertising new, enticing products. ACN instead works with people just like you, and the result is more choices for consumers and a remarkable business opportunity for you offering people you already know an alternative on the essential services they are using anyway.

Seven Ways To Keep A Cool Head During Lockdown

On Saturday, Britsh prime minster Boris Johnson announced that the U.K. would effectively be entering a second national lockdown from Thursday. This lockdown, which came as a surprise to many, is due to last for four weeks, ending on 2 December. 

In this environment of extreme uncertainty, leaders will need to keep thinking positively and draw on their resilience in order to keep a cool head. So, how can they do this? Here, seven successful entrepreneurs, mentors and business owners offer their top tips for remaining resilient through a second national lockdown.

1.     Believe that NO means Next Opportunity

“The secret of my success was to always think of the corridor concept and believe that with the right determination and persistence, doors would always open for me,” says Darren Lewitt, businessman, mentor and author of Dream, Create, Believe, Achieve. “Why not challenge yourself and decide which doors and corridors you ultimately aim to conquer? Sometimes a door will be shut firmly in your face, but you must not let that set you back. I have always believed that if someone says ‘NO’ it simply means ‘Next Opportunity’. Stay positive and believe that things happen for a reason and you’ll do just fine.”

2.     Don’t take setbacks personally, see them as feedback

“Life is a constant test of character, belief and ideals,” observes Leonard Sekyonda, an entrepreneur, mentor and author of Be Your Own Hero Again. “Throughout life we are presented with many obstacles and challenges that will test us, but it is only through resilience that we are truly able to go after what we aspire to achieve in life. To be resilient is to not give up, just pick yourself up and try again. So many people stop at the first few obstacles they face and, as a result, never get to discover their true capability. I believe resilience is the ability to not take our setbacks personally but instead to see them as feedback.”

3.     Be prepared to pivot 

“Life as a business owner is very tough and not for the faint-hearted,” argues Tracey Smolinski, founder of global business network Introbiz and co-author of Inspirational Women of the World. “As soon as Covid-19 hit, we had to make very fast decisions to alter and pivot the business. From doing all our business 100% face-to-face we had to shift, learning the skills of Zoom and other online platforms. It is so important to have a good network around you in these challenging times.”

4.     Don’t be afraid of making mistakes – none of us are perfect

“Over the years I have made a lot of mistakes that have cost me time and money, millions sometimes,” says Gian Paolo Aliatis, a serial entrepreneur and co-living property expert. “From mistakes comes wisdom, however. In the long run, my mistakes will save me 10-fold in profit compared with what I lost making those initial mistakes. I am still surprised by the level of business and industry knowledge that I have managed to acquire.”

5.     Accept that you can’t control everything

“Try to accept the situation you’re in, rather than put energy into fighting or questioning things,” advises Blake Auden, a graphic artist and poet. “It takes time, but once we come to accept what’s going on, we can focus on taking positive steps to improve the things we can control. I try to count the things I’m grateful for once a day, limit my exposure to the news and negative social media, and do all I can to actively seek out positive stories. Lastly, I try to focus on my art: on turning everything I’m feeling into something creative. Every day I make time to write, draw, journal, paint – anything that gives the day some structure and allows me to forget the outside world for just a little while.”

6.     Choose to be joyful and positive 

“Something I remind myself of every single day is to choose joy and positivity over anything else,” reveals Emilia Ohrtmann, serial entrepreneur, designer and author of It’s Your Life: How to Choose Confidence. “Whether it’s enjoying some special bonding times with your children, connecting with old friends via the internet, trying something new like baking or a new yoga posture, being a child again or dancing in the living room to loud music, look for the little things that bring joy.”

7.     Get reacquainted with nature… and your partner

“Take advantage of the opportunity to exercise outdoors,” recommends Suzanne Pool, a women’s empowerment expert and author of Discipline: A Secret Code for Women in the Bedroom, Boardroom and Beyond. “A brisk walk every day is great for mental health. It’s an opportunity to process our thoughts and release pent-up energy. A walk also provides some structure in the day – it’s a useful anchor when many of our routines have been taken away from us. My other tip is to have some fun with your other half. Lockdown means we’re spending far more time with our partners, but that’s a useful chance to get to know each other again, and possibly rekindle some dwindling flames.”

The next four weeks are set to be a testing time for U.K. leaders, who will be expected to maintain the morale of their teams without knowing exactly what lies ahead. By focusing on these seven tips, they can help to enhance their own resilience so they emerge from the latest lockdown in a good state of mind.

2020 Marks the Year of Introbiz’ First Global Online Summit

2020 marks the year of Introbiz’ first Global Online Summit, taking place from 25th – 27th November.

As one of Wales and the UK’s most ambitious, recognised business networks, established for nearly 12 years, the COVID epidemic has fuelled their mission to take the world by storm, even further this year.

Introbiz brings over 7000 visitors to their annual exhibitions & events with global leading entrepreneurs, such as Grant Cardone & Lord Sugar, and has connected with Sir Richard Branson & other leading global entrepreneurs at Necker Island events.

Having built up 12 years-worth of experience in providing industry leading events, COVID put a stop to the full year’s schedule of real-world networking events and businesses expo’s already booked in when the country went in to lockdown.

Introbiz MD’s Paul Smolinski & Tracey Smolinski were faced with a difficult decision: To shut up shop and wait for the pandemic to be over, or to innovate, pivot and look to rise – and even thrive – from the enforced situation. Being the optimistic fighters that they are, they chose the latter and switched their business to an online model as soon as the UK lockdown began.

Introbiz switched the membership and events model from real world events to online events and online membership, and continued with their weekly events, using Zoom as their new venue of choice. Since March 16th, they have hosted over 50 online events with over 40 global speakers and sports stars, pulling in thousands of visitors. On top of providing networking opportunities, they decided to leverage their previous relationships, with best-selling authors like Brian Tracey, Les Brown, Sharon Lechter, Dr John Demartini, Jairek Robbins & Tom Ziglar, to not only speak at their events, but to provide leading world-class training and knowledge, as well as live Q&A sessions to get real-time answers and expertise.

This successful pivot has inspired Paul & Tracey to create a Global Online Summit, creating a global opportunity that is appropriately named “Rise To Thrive.”

The “Rise To Thrive” Introbiz Global Summit is set to be one of the biggest online business events of 2020; offering current clients and the wider business community a virtual networking breakfast experience, and the opportunity to meet and greet global entrepreneurs and like-minded business owners like never before. The Summit will feature over 35 of the world’s most renowned names such as Les Brown, Sharon Lechter, John Demartini, Brian Tracy, Jariek Robbins, Tom Ziglar along with new additions such as; Rob Moore, Alec Stern, Camilita Nutall, Forbes Riley, Bob Burg and Evan Carmichael, to name just a small handful over the three days.

Introbiz anticipates welcoming people from all walks of life to join the Summit, including existing clients from professional services, hospitality, real estate, motor trade, leisure & tourism, and third sector to connect and to learn about the universal laws of health, wealth, success, relationships and connections.

Throughout COVID, Introbiz’ main aim has been to keep the economic wheel turning and to ensure that Welsh businesses remain inspired to connect, collaborate, network and grow. They hope that this one-off event will be a demonstration of finding the gift in adversity. Having reached over 25 countries so far, Introbiz aims to bridge the borders of our world through entrepreneurial spirit and progressive action.

Founder and MD of the Global Summit, Paul Smolinski says;

“We are proud to bring over 30 world-class global entrepreneurs and speakers to the Welsh, UK and global stage during these tough times, and are confident that business owners will be inspired and educated in many strategies to help them to pivot and grow out of these uncertain times”.
Introbiz invites you to join us at our first Online Summit to get inspired, and get connected.

How has the Covid-19 pandemic changed cycling in Dublin City? – Weekly News & Analysis

Since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic, people have looked for alternative methods of travelling to avoid busy public transport. Eibhin Kavanagh investigates how the pandemic is affecting cycling in the city.

Is cycling in Dublin City safe? Photo by Eibhin Kavanagh
With our movements once again restricted, people in Ireland are limited to travelling within 5km of their homes. Walking and cycling have become a more popular means of exercising as a result of gyms closing and sporting events being cancelled.

In the last ten years, Dublin has seen an increase in the number of people cycling. A number of bike share schemes have become well established. However, 2020 has seen an exponential increase in cyclists, which Dublin City has had to accommodate. This change, due to social distancing restrictions, means more space is required for both pedestrians and cyclists to make their way around the  city.  

Councillor Michael Pidgeon talked to The City about the recent changes related to cycling in Dublin City.

“In some ways I think the people are ahead of where the city is,” Pidgeon said. “We know that outside of peak hours there are now more people cycling than there were at this time of the year last year; there’s been a huge increase.”

Dublin City Council projected  a 200% increase of cyclists in Dublin City from 2019 to 2020.This would be an increase from 13,131 to 39,000.

  2019 Figures Likely Future Change Potential Future Figures
All Public Transport 116,287 80% Capacity Reduction 30,000
Car 57,985 Approx. 30% reduction 41,000
Taxi 2,661 Assume 30% reduction 1,900
Walk 24,691 Target 100% increase 50,000
Cycle 13,131 Target 200% increase 39,000
Goods 983 No change 1,000
Motorcycles 1,485 No change 1,485
Total (persons) 217,223   164,385

The Canal Cordon Count was analysed by Dublin City Council to determine where the greatest demand for walking and cycling was recorded. The table below shows the number of people crossing the canal cordon (both directions) during the morning peak period from 7am to 10am in November 2019.

From 1997 to 2019, the number of cyclists crossing this cordon heading into the city centre between 7 am and 10 am increased by 133%, from 5,628 to 13,125.

The number of cyclists remained between  4,000 and 6,000 between 1997 and 2010 before increasing by approximately 15% year on year until 2015 when the increase slowed up until 2017.  There was a small decrease in 2018,  but cycling numbers increased by 7.3% in 2018 and 2019.

According to research conducted by the Road Safety Authority, 4 in 5 cyclists are injured on urban roads. More cyclists are  injured during morning and evening commutes. Of all collisions involving another vehicle – 4 in 5 cyclists are injured by cars. 1,056 cyclists were injured in collisions in 2018.

In Dublin, the number of cyclist deaths since 1997 has remained relatively low with a slight increase in 2017, according to figures collected by the Road Safety Authority.

Dublin has over 120 miles of cycle routes. While changes have been ongoing to improve cycling infrastructure in the city, especially since lockdown in the spring, the demand is high for safe and accessible cycling.

“It felt like at the start of the pandemic there was a real understanding that we needed to take more space for cycling to encourage more people to do it, but it feels like that momentum has dropped a bit,” said Pidgeon. “So, I think that we need to get that going again.

“In terms of infrastructure, I think the big changes we have seen are some of the temporary measures along the quays, particularly along the northside quays.”

Some of the Cycle Safety interventions introduced since April include the installation of Nassau Street contra-flow cycle track from Clare Street to Dawson Street, the partial installation of key sections of the Interim Liffey Cycle route, removal of on-street car parking from Inns Quay and Ormond Quay, and a section of work from Church Street to Ha’penny Bridge, according to Dublin City Council.

Dublin City Council also discussed other plans to ensure safe cycling in the city, including the reduction of the number of traffic lanes to accommodate protected cycling facilities on both sides of the road, while maintaining a balance for other required services. While there have been major changes made within Dublin City Centre to ensure safe cycling, other parts of the city have yet to see changes that will make cycling accessible and safe.

“One of the things is to start looking at the urban villages, so instead of just focusing on the very core city centre, you would be looking at areas like Inchicore, Rialto, Stoneybatter, Phibsborough, Rathmines,” Pidgeon said in relation to making cycling consistent for everyone.

“What we seen in the pandemic is that people are happy enough to stay within a few kilometers of where they live, so we shouldn’t just be designing a cycle lane with a view that will just take office workers from the suburbs to the city centre, because that’s not what the demand is right now. That’s important, we should definitely do that, but it will have to also be about making sure that local routes around your home are safe.

“There’s still a lot to do, but equally I’d like to say that cycling in Dublin City is safe. There’s a perception of danger that I don’t think is entirely there. There’s a lot the city needs to do to feel a lot safer and be safer with segregated lanes, but if anyone’s considering it, I’d say just ask a friend who does cycle regularly and they can show you some good routes give you some tips and you’ll be up and running in no time.”
