June is national safety month in the U.S. It’s the time to be aware of safety issues around the home, work, and public places.
How to get involved:
Identify safety problems and report them to the right people.
Make sure your first aid kits are adequately stocked.
Check the condition of your fire extinguishers. If the pressure gauge is low, you may be able to have it re-charged. Otherwise, throw it away and replace it with a new one. Your fire department can advise you on this matter.
Take a CPR course.
Check the condition of your flashlights. When the electricity goes out, you don’t want a torch with dead batteries. Engraved flashlights with your company logo are a great way to advertise your company while helping to keep everyone safe.
October is “Self-Promotion Month”, according to NationalDayCalendar.com. This “Month” was started by Debbie Allen, an international self-employed business speaker. By the nature of her business, she must promote herself in order to make a living. Based on her philosophy, we offer these tips on promoting yourself, if you are an entrepreneur.
Keep your eyes open to new ideas. Other people can give you tips on how to promote your business better.
Ask your customers to refer you to their friends. Don’t be shy about this.
Make new contacts. Join the chamber of commerce and go to all their business parties.
Be an opportunist. If you sense a deal, jump on it. If you sell only donuts, and some of your customers ask about peanuts, get into the peanut business, also.
You already have a captive audience. If you give them what they want, you will increase the size of your business.
Improve yourself in your personal life, and that success will carry over into your business life. Examples are joining the church choir, developing a hobby, volunteering with civic groups.
Pass out engraved flashlights with your company logo. They will last a lifetime, and so will the name of your company.
Mothers across the nation today are (hopefully) getting some much-needed relaxation time and are feeling appreciated. It’s #MothersDay- have you called your mother or sent her something thoughtful? These Maglite flashlights are a perfect gift for the mother figure in anyone’s life – spread the idea to your employees and customers!
The brave men and women on the “front line” of this viral pandemic are working beyond the call of duty. Fighting an invisible enemy takes more than courage. It takes a faith that God will protect you and help you to do your job.
If you and your company or non-profit organization are looking for a way to show appreciation to these brave “care-takers”, Maglite engraved flashlights can be used by anyone mentioned here. Heartfelt thanks go out to our:
Other medical care personnel
Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT’s)
Grocery store clerks, who are also taking a health risk to feed us
A company is only as good as its employees, right? It can have all of the best mangers and bosses, but if the employees don’t feel appreciated, they won’t put in as much effort into their work, and will ultimately go looking for a new job.
Today is #EmployeeAppreciationDay, a day for all companies in all industries to focus on thanking their employees for all of their time and hard work. This show of appreciation will, in turn, strengthen the bond between employer and employee, and result in improved retention rates and increased productivity.
