Is the Four Day Work-Week Model Recommended?

Working hours are generally proportional to the work output. The more you work, the higher the profits for the company.  However, at the end of the day, the employees are humans and not robots.

Working for long hours without proper breaks will eventually decrease their productivity and hamper the company’s growth. As a result, companies contemplate whether they should reduce the number of workdays from five to four days per week.

Does lowering the operating hours ensure a better output? Yes, it does, but only if the employees give their best in the new work hours.

Numerous countries have already adopted this new work model and have witnessed an increment in the companies’ overall output. Even some leading companies like Microsoft Japan, Radioactive PR, Shake Shack etc. have adopted the four-day work model and benefited from it.

Is This Model Suitable Long-term?

Starting a new business is far more than simply hanging a sign out and waiting for customers to pour through the door and I’m sure anyone willing to invest in a new venture is well aware of this fact. First is to make sure that foreign countries do not subsidize exports so that market incentives are not distorted and hence efficient allocation of activity among the countries is not destroyed. Globalization is an intensified process of internationalizing a business. In general terms, global companies are larger and more widespread than the low-lying international business organizations. Brand loyalty isn’t as common as it once was. For that reason, business development has to be a constant. Many businesses … Read the rest

As per report, the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced that the Canadian government is sending 10 million Canadian dollars ( ₹60 crore) to India to help with the buying of ambulances and necessary medical requirements, to support New Delhi’s fight against a record surge in Covid-19 cases.

As the typically fast paced London came to a standstill for months, it comes with a shock that Londoners have increased their caffeine intake the most compared to other coffee drinkers in England.

More than 110,000 restaurants — an estimated 17{a09df0a7172ddbd410cbc83e52d18ea8893b7d066ec9e694b3e49f37d306c3bb} of the US total — closed over the past year as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Those that survived had to get creative, adapting rapidly to lockdowns, capacity restrictions, supply chain disruptions and staff shortages. Now, declining Covid-19 cases and expanding vaccination efforts offer a glimmer of hope for the industry’s comeback.

However, even after most people have been vaccinated, Covid-19 and its consequences will remain with us. According to a Nielsen survey, nearly one-quarter of people say they’ll spend less at restaurants in the future, both because of lingering fears over the virus and because the pandemic dramatically changed consumer behavior. For restaurants, this means that the changes required to survive the pandemic were just the beginning of a broader shift.

Colin v Cuthbert – PR as a tool in legal battles

“Colin the Caterpillar” was officially trade marked in 2008. A little over 10 years later, Aldi started selling Cuthbert the Caterpillar.

Marks & Spencer has this month filed a claim against Aldi claiming Aldi’s Cuthbert has violated its intellectual property in Colin.

Notably, Marks & Spencer has not yet brought claims against the other retailers who also sell caterpillar cakes. Aldi will be asked to remove Cuthbert from its shelves and to refrain from selling similar products in the future. In response, Aldi has announced that it intends to sell a limited edition version with profits going to charity and has asked if “Colin and Cuthbert [can] be besties”.

Mandy Robertson, associate at law firm Womble Bond Dickinson explains that whilst in the legal sphere many have focused on the claim itself, what is also interesting is Aldi’s PR strategy. Aldi has created a humorous story of Cuthbert behind bars … Read the rest
