An innovative business solution


Hi,

Today is a challenging day. Do you agree?

Businesses are adapting to volatility and uncertainty as a way of life. With the economic outlook and ever-widening range of threats continuing to test even the strongest organization, companies are facing a variety of challenges as they strive to find growth and stay competitive. From improving operational effectiveness, to expanding into new markets, we’re here to help.

We all know that workers need rising living standards over their lifetimes, a balance between the demands of work and family, and workplaces that are safe and fair. We also know that major trends will sweep across and radically change the landscape of workplaces and the makeup of the workforce in the twenty-first century. We all shall details the extraordinary diversity of the workforce, the explosive growth of technology, and the pervasive impact of growing globalization. How will future workers strive for and attain economic security, work-family balance, and safe and fair workplaces?

I do not try to provide all the answers. Instead, it presents the trends, examines their combined implications and asks the questions that we expect will help shape the debate over labor policy for the twenty-first century. Here are some of them:

How do we ensure that workers get the skills they need to succeed in the twenty-first century workplace? Will employers hire and train workers who initially lack skills? What happens to the worker laid off from a manufacturing job at age 55 —does he get training in new technologies or is he stuck in lower-wage jobs like groundskeeper, security guard, and warehouse stock clerk? How do we make sure that people with disabilities have access to the technologies that facilitate their participation in the workplace? How will e-commerce impact employment?

How can workers find the time they need for their families, while at the same time ensuring that employers can get the job done? How do we ensure that those with lower educational levels are not left behind by the digital economy? Will temporary and other nontraditional workers be relegated to permanent second class status, or will temps become more like independent contractors and leverage higher compensation? Will workers increasingly rely on the collective bargaining process to provide higher wages and better benefits?

Will we manage the change in the workforce to society’s advantage? Will global competition lift standards for people working and living throughout the world? Will businesses invest in workers who have been left behind to ensure the nation’s continued prosperity? Will we bring down the barriers to success for all Americans?

The answers to these and similar questions will help map the landscape of the future of work. For future workers, employers, labor unions, and policymakers, preserving the constants for working families are the goal, and managing change effectively is the challenge. Together, we can proceed with confidence.

Wait?

Would you like to know that there is a system that could be on trial for 30 days free of charge with unlimited number of users. If you decide to implement the system, but are not satisfied with the application, we could refund the amount of the last monthly subscription fee.

Please note: small and large companies have reported on average a 30% increase in efficiency after introducing the system.

It is an innovative business solution that can be fully adapted to any organizational structure of any industry or any sector. The application is being successfully used by individuals, small businesses, consulting and law firms, communication agencies as well as IT and telecommunications companies. The best result of the system will be obtained if is is exactly tailored to the organizational’s processes and if it is modelling the job-or project structure of the organization. We provide full learning management so that you can start using the application as soon as possible.

Through the credible information provided by the system, a training, evaluation and motivational system can be developed, in line with the organization’s objectives and corporate culture, to the greatest possible extent. Since everyone can track their own performance, the data collected may not only be used as an impartial and unique evaluation tool, but is also providing the employees with a credible feedback. The information is therefore clear to both parties, and this business solution motivates the employees to keep up with the right level of performance without the need of intervention from part of the supervisors or superiors.

Mobility is very important in today’s working environment. Here the system helps developing flexible work places and creating the conditions of productive mobile work. Numerous international surveys suggest that employees highly appreciate the flexible working time and they usually find it significantly more appealing than higher wages. A workplace that makes its employees possible to manage their working hours flexibly, has a great advantage in the labor market and attracts professionally valuable employees who ensure competitive advantage for the company. This system is the perfect tool for all employees to document their working activity independently from where and when it is being performed. Mobility provides a more balanced lifestyle, which will be reflected back is the quality of work.

We have created a system that does not measure the work performance or the working time based on posterior self-declarations but in REAL TIME. The continuous collection, recording and sorting of data by the system, reduce the administrative burden of the employees. Thanks to the real time tracking of the working activities, the system users spend only a couple of minutes a day with administrative tasks. There is no need to write reports either to prepare time sheets.

It makes possible to engage additional workforce, such as people working from home, part-time or in non-traditional working hours. The application similarly helps the re-employment of the mothers, or experienced personnels and improves the employment opportunities of people with limited mobility or living far away. By expanding its workforce resources, a company can find more cost effective employment solutions compared to the traditional ones. The system makes the working time more flexible and easier to organize, offering this way many benefits to both employees and employers.

In many cases, work is not performed in the office, but on an external site. Since the system also runs on smartphones or tablets any working activity can be recorded device-independently and can be also assigned to projects or to tasks. The phone registers the user’s geographical position which, besides the location tracking, allows to build a route record. The application also ensures the separation of the private and work-related calls and the photo capture or image upload functions offer further work documentation options.

So guys, what are you waiting for, give out your ideas today.

To begin, here is a definition of creativity by Andy Rutledge:

Creativity is an inborn capacity for thinking differently than most, seeing differently, and making connections and perceiving relationships others miss. But most importantly, it is the ability to then extrapolate contextually useful ways of employing that data: to create something that meets a specific challenge. (Andy Rutledge)

So creativity is the development of an ‘idea’.

What Burj-Khalifa tells you?


At the first place what is Burj-Khalifa?

Burj Khalifa “Khalifa Tower”, formerly known as Burj Dubai, is a skyscraper in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and is the tallest man-made structure ever built, at 828 m (2,717 ft). Construction began on 21 September 2004, with the exterior of the structure completed on 1 October 2009 and the building officially opened on 4 January 2010.

Stretching over half a mile high, the skyscraper literally towers above the previous record holder, Taiwan’s 508 meter tall Taipei 101. The 818 meter tall spike of steel and glass now piercing the skyline is the centerpiece of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum’s plans to transform Dubai into the Middle East’s premier business hub. Will this be a reality?

Now I invite you to have a look on the latest wonder of the world, The Burj-Khalifa or Burj-Dubai.

The Burj-Khalifa

But my dear readers, what is the significant of this building? Why waste money unnecessarily when there are so many critical and noble things to do? What is the use or who cares for such world records? UAE already boasted big buildings like the biggest or most expensive hotel etc. It’s all for competition- now someone else will go one better and this reminds me of the hadith of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) when he stated that one of the signs for the day of judgement (minor) would be the constructing of high buildings (for competition purposes).
A sign of the advanced technology of the age in which we live and which The Prophet (pbuh) has mentioned is the construction of tall buildings.

“There will be no Judgment—until very tall buildings are constructed”. (Reported by Abu Hurairah)
“The Hour will not be established—till the people compete with one another in constructing high buildings”. (Bukhari)

This is so true and it is happening before our own eyes! If we look at the history of architecture and engineering, we see that multi-storied buildings began to be constructed only towards the end of the nineteenth century. Technological developments, the growing use of steel and the use of elevators accelerated the construction of structures called skyscrapers. Skyscrapers have become an important part of the architecture of the twentieth and twentyfirst centuries, and have today become a symbol of prestige. What the hadith says has come true: people do compete in the construction of tall buildings, and nations compete with one another in building the tallest skyscrapers. Nauzubillah.

In another famous Hadith of Jibril which we often hear, what we don’t usually know is that in the same hadith the Prophet actually prophesied about the appearance of tall buildings at the end of time. See the full hadith below:

`Umar ibn Khattab (Allah be well pleased with him) said: “As we were sitting one day before the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him), a man suddenly appeared. He wore pure white clothes and his hair was dark black—yet there were no signs of travel on him, and none of us knew him. He came and sat down in front of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), placing his knees against his, and his hands on his thighs. He said, “O Muhammad! Tell me about Islam.”

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) replied, “Islam is to bear witness that there is no god but God and that Muhammad is the Messenger of God; and to perform the prayer; pay zakat; fast Ramadan; and to perform Hajj to the House if you are able.”

The man said, “You have spoken the truth,” and we were surprised that he asked and then confirmed the answer. Then, he asked, “Tell me about belief (iman).”

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) replied, “It is to believe in Allah; His Angels; His Books; His Messengers; the Last Day; and in destiny—its good and bad.”

The man said, “You have spoken the truth. Now, tell me about spiritual excellence (ihsan).”

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) replied, “It is to serve Allah as though you behold Him; and if you don’t behold him, (know that) He surely sees you.”

“Now, tell me of the Last Hour,” asked the man.

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) replied, “The one asked knows no more of it than the one asking.”

“Then tell me about its signs,” said the man.

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) replied, “That slave women give birth to their mistresses; and that you see barefoot, unclothed, beginning shepherds competing in the construction of tall buildings.”

Then the visitor left, and I waited a long time. Then the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) asked me, “Do you know, Umar, who the questioner was?” I replied, “Allah and His Messenger know best.”He said (Allah bless him and give him peace), “It was Jibril. He came to you to teach you your religion.” [Sahih Muslim]

So let’s ponder whether this is necessary or not when we know that Dubai economy is not in a good shape. To understand better about Dubai, read Dubai in debt crisis: Now British banks face fresh crisis after investing billions.
