Even health services need accreditation to give a sense of assurance to the public. Without proper accreditation, there might be doubts and trust cannot simply be bought by services alone. The people need to know that they are indeed being served by credible practitioners. When health is concerned, there is no leeway that can be provided.
It seems like all of the recent developments in the agriculture industry have sparked a big flurry of movement and everybody wants to start leveraging on that while the going is good! I imagine that we will see a lot more businesses wanting to go for the grants if it will help with their storage and other cost prices. Since it seems like the bank is very eager to expand its portfolio in the area, I reckon that a lot of businesses are counting on the grants being a near sure-thing when they apply too...
Great move, I developed Online stores from scratch, please feel free to contact me if you need assistance on anything about ecommerce. I have created these two Mult Million Rands shops for our South African clients www.africansattire.com | www.dstvonline.shopping | www.3DAnyThing.Co.za
I hope the work you do for banks in Africa is based on facts, not sensationalism. My goodness, to write something that essentially says: "I have not done the research; they probably have....but I know better....". No thank you. No rebuttal required.
I stopped taking this comment seriously when I did not see any actual rebuttal or useful feedback on thrust of my article. And not to toot my own horn, but 50% of my work is on banks in Africa. But I do appreciate that you took the time to comment. P.S I am a fan of sensationalism to make a point, so you bust me.
I stopped taking this piece seriously after reading "I have not done any research panels on this article" followed shortly thereafter by "Obviously, the team (at ABSA) did their homework" and then your criticism of the new ABSA brand strategy. Essentially you are saying: "I have not done any research; they have....but I am now going to continue tearing into their work...because I know I know better". As strategists we should be less sensationalist.
How can the construction of an entire facility, or any of the water connections for the structures and centres here have gone through without prior approval? If there are really that many units whose water connections in storage are not sanctioned then perhaps it's the construction companies and builders who need to be scrutinised more closely to ensure that they are not flouting their power when it comes to building facilities in the area...
I imagine that this would be a trend that's happening across multiple industries at the moment because these services would greatly lift a big burden off of these companies' shoulders. I don't think they would want to worry about what's in storage or the daily nitty gritty handling of units in and out of their properties. They need to focus on the operations that bring the money in! It just makes sense!
@celestedickinson thank you for a thoughtful and well - argued article. In answer to your question - when is the best time to get HR support? - I would suggest to business owners: be proactive and get help with the people aspect of your work before you hit a crisis. And know that using an HR Consultant will help you get the very best out of your people.
Lynette, hello, thanks for your insights, got new ideas from your article. I didn't put great attention to the payment wide options aspect, but now I believe that trustworthy payments & great chaise of options could attract more customers or save from switching them to other online stores, where payment part is easier and affordable for them, so thanks a lot. Otherwise, we are of the same mind, for instance, I never doubt the importance and added value of pushes ( here's detailed quide on correct steps-to-take to get best results of using push notifications https://getfirepush.com/blogs/news/web-push-notifications-acomplete-beginners-guide ). What's more, strongly believe that personalization + re-marketing can give you conversions and best ROI results. What about the other readers? Do you actually invest in re-marketing or marketing automation? What kind of services and tactics do you prefer and why? Would appreciate your shares :)
"... to begin to negotiate economic changes which will open the mainstream economy to millions" means the ANC must return to a fully capitalistic economic system otherwise it will not be possible, but they just don't and will never understand it! I also doubt it if many political commentators do! So everything will eventually fall apart because socialism and communism cannot create economic growth. How impossible is this to understand when it is proven over and over all over the world - even Russia and China have embraced capitalism which is the main reason why China will become the major economic power in the world! How can there be any doubt about it??
There's quite a lot of work being done in the US with small producers' produce being aggregated via geography and GPS-based apps. Similarly, it connects producers directly with retailers, although in many instances it eliminates the middleman completely with producers delivering directly to retailers. Producers as small as half a hectare are able to get into the market profitably selling high value commodities, herbs and seasonal veggies.
