How to Retain Employees in Today’s World

To run a successful business, you have to do more than hire great people, you have to give those people a reason to stay with you. Otherwise, you’re making an investment in employees that you get little return on. Some of these employees just want a year or so of experience before they move on to other jobs. Others find that your company just isn’t a good fit for them. There are a number of different techniques you can use to improve your employee retention and, at the same time, boost employee morale and productivity. Here are a few of these strategies.

Hire the Right People

Does the person you’re interviewing for a job seem excited about your company? If so, he or she may be a great fit and stay with your business for years. However, if you notice that someone has a resume full of different jobs, it could be a sign that the person likes to switch jobs fairly regularly.

5 Best Practices To Choose Right UI Design Colors for Your WordPress Site

Have you ever visited those minimalistic design websites which look so simple, with the basic layout yet are still so eye catchy? Well, most of the acknowledgment goes to the colors used by these websites for a flawless UI experience just to make the website look out of the box. Our common tendency while boosting a website’s UI experience is to ignore the role of colors. Contrary to this, the colors play an active and effective part in communicating a brand message of a website. They improve the website’s structure and enhance object recognition.

Colors also have a positive effect on a user’s psychology. If you picked light colors for the navigation menu and are using bright colors for the website’s background, you’re all set to make the menu difficult to read. A study conducted by User Testing revealed that users prefer bright and dark color websites over the white interface. Further, another study was conducted by Ironpaper which concluded that the colors do increase the website recognition by whopping 80 percent! FULL POST

Motivation Or Discipline: Which One's More Essential

You look at successful people and you wonder how they did it. You hear the stories about the successful man or woman who grew up with nothing and somehow managed to end up a millionaire. You see the successful restaurateur who parlayed a food cart into a chain of restaurants and you wonder how it was done. You hear that anyone can make something of themselves if they just try. But trying isn’t all of it, is it? These successful people must have something more and they do, but it isn’t something you don’t have, it’s something they developed.

Motivation

One thing successful people have is motivation. They have something that causes them to act. It could be simply refusing to live in poverty forever. It could be that they want their parents to be proud of them or they wanted to be the first in their family to own a business or become the head of a company. Just like the children that are the first in their family to graduate from high school or college, people that are successful started out with a goal or a vision. There was something in their lives that was missing or that made them unhappy or discontented and they sought to change it. FULL POST

6 Healthy Habits for Weight Loss

Maintaining a healthy weight throughout your life is about building healthy habits and sticking with them over time. Without healthy habits you’ll eventually gain back weight lost through dieting, which is exactly why you should take a minute to learn six healthy habits for weight loss, and work to incorporate them into your life in any way that you can.

Eat Slowly
Portion control is a major part of any healthy diet and it’s easy to eat more than you should if you aren’t paying attention. It’s vital that you learn how to eat appropriate portions of food to maintain a healthy weight, but for a short-term weight loss program you can rely on meal replacement shakes to keep your portions down to lower sizes. Each time that you sit down to a meal, eat your food slowly. If you are a fast eater, just eating slowly might be all it takes to help you cut down on your overall consumption and help you lose some weight.

Start with Vegetables
At the beginning of each meal, it’s good to get into the habit of eating all of your vegetables. They might not be the most exciting part of your meal, but doing so can help you cut down on the less healthy items on your plate. Vegetables are packed with fiber that will help you feel full making them an excellent food for weight loss. If you start with a heaping pile of vegetables you might not have space for some of the less healthy, calorie rich foods still on your plate once you’re through with them. FULL POST
