The Different Advantages of Employee Recognition and Rewards

Posted on Posted in fashion

Research has found that almost all employees respond to appreciation at work, particularly when it is expressed through a form of effort recognition. Like students who receive their qualifications at their graduation ceremony to acknowledge their hard work, staff should also be regularly acknowledged for their hard work and qualifications gained whilst at work. This is because recognition of their efforts demonstrates that their work is valued by the company. Recognition does not require a large gift; in fact, a simple “thank you” can be enough to keep a staff member happy.

This article will provide information on the advantages of employee recognition and rewards.

What Are the Benefits of Staff Recognition and Rewards?

1. Productivity

It is a well-known fact that engaged employees are significantly more productive, more efficient and more proactive in their work environment. If a staff member’s efforts are praised and rewarded, it makes sense that other members of staff will attempt to work harder to receive this type of employee recognition.

2. Employee Happiness

Fulfilled employees present with happier temperaments and are more motivated to perform because of this positive feeling towards the business. When an employer treats his or her staff members with gratitude and respect, then it is likely that the staff members will perform in a productive manner. Positivity is important in a work setting and happy employees spread feelings of positivity throughout the company – a highly beneficial environment all people want to be a part of.

3. Increased Job Satisfaction

Recognising a staff member’s efforts is a sign that you value the work they are doing for the company. The recognition of work effort is often considered a reward and, therefore, must be significant. Consequentially, this makes the employee believe they are making a difference to the business.

4. Loyalty

If the staff members are engaged with the company, they should be able to market the business’ brand more effectively than people who do not care about their work. Rewarding people who work hard tend to generate loyalty and will assist in building strong relationships within the team and the organisation.

5. Team Culture

Rewards incorporating peer-to-peer recommendations are ideal means of building team spirit because they encourage employees to identify positive characteristics in other staff members. Allowing colleagues to nominate others for rewards can be considered empowering and demonstrative of the value you place in their opinions.

6. Retention

A high turnover in employee retention will always lead to low morale among existing staff members and can result in people searching for alternate employment. The time needed to recruit and train new employees can affect fiscal costs; therefore retention of staff must be a priority. Provision of rewards offers staff a reason to stay at a company. A fulfilled and happy staff members will not only choose to remain at a company but will also perform better towards the business.

What is your style?

Posted on Posted in fashion

The personal style in the way we dress is both a way of communicating with others, but also one through self-expression. Our choices unconsciously mirror our inner world and influence the way everyone thinks of us.

Dressing is a unique and everyday way of expressing ourselves. Even when we think we wear something with no further thoughts, we actually wear what expresses our mental state at that moment. The choice of any cloth expresses our mental state at the moment of its choice, while our style is directly related to our personality. The personal style in our clothes expresses and confirms the uniqueness of our personality. Sometimes, however, we show something different from what we really are, maybe something that we think we are or something we would like to be.

A closer look at your wardrobe will convince you that every piece of clothing you have on it has something of you. Your dressing options tell a lot about personality, character, but also the way you want the others to see you. According to the color psychology, for example, when your wardrobe is full of black clothes, then you are definitely not the most social, approachable and open guy! On the other hand, when colors are bright, it simply means that you are open, social and optimistic. When you are still obsessed with a particular color, it signifies something for you that depend on the color of choice. Generally the dark clothes though are clothes of power, mystery and professionalism. In daily dressing they give a negative feeling, lack of inspiration, liveliness, show insecurity and aggression.

On the contrary, bright clothes have exactly the opposite effect, suggesting vitality, optimism, purity and giving a sense of approachable and friendly person. More specifically, red is the color of the capacity, the passion, the heart and the self-esteem, the blue color of the spirit and the sky, the yellow of energy and creativity, the green of hope and tranquility and the blue of certainty and trust.

Let’s now see what our style represents about our personality.

CONVENTIONAL STYLE

If you prefer simple but careful dressing without peculiarities and patterns with no bright colors, then you are probably introverted. You like not to challenge, not to stand out, not to comment, and to live simply and discreetly. Your image is rigorous, measured. It does not give you much information about you and lets you live impersonal in your peace. You may be a bit shy.

ECCENTRIC STYLE

If you are a fashionista and you like to dress up like a star and show an exclusive obsession with expensive brand name clothing, and your denim kjole is one of a kind, then you definitely love to work with each other and be at the center of attention. You like to live loudly and in passion. You are very interested in the way the others see you. Your image shows someone who wants to seem successful, but somewhere inside you is an internal insecurity. Your …

Posted on Posted in fashion

There are more and more retailers who are including plus size clothing lines to their collections. This is proof that curvy girls are skilling the style game right now. Of course, you might want to improve your style game and if you do there are some tips that you can use.

Invest in the Right Undergarments

One of the lessons that you can take from plus-size model Ashley Graham is to invest in a great bra and panties. You should always ensure that you are wearing the right undergarments because they are the foundation of your outfit. You do not want to have the perfect outfit but feel uncomfortable in it because you do not have the right undergarments.

Invest in Good Basics

There are basic clothing items that you will be able to wear under anything. You need to invest in getting good leggings, tights, tees and tanks.

Try On Different Sizes When You Are Shopping

Size is nothing but a number and when you try on different clothes you will notice that this is true. Sizes are not consistent between brands and a 14 for one brand will not be the same as a 14 for another. This is why you should not be afraid to try on different sizes when you shop because that 12 could be the size that you need. Taking the clothing at size value is something that you should forget about because you never know what will fit.

Try Some Knee and Thigh-Highs

Knee and thigh-highs will elongate the look of your legs and they add a bit of sass to any outfit. They also make any outfit a bit more quirky than your average ankle socks will. When you combine mesh tights with the thigh-highs you will get an amazing look. There is something about this combination that makes thicker legs look sexy and awesome. It is also a styling trick that is ideal for the season.

Do Not Hide Your Curves

Many curvy women try to hide their curves with oversized clothing, but some of these women do not realize that this actually makes them look bigger than they are. When you embrace your curves, you will find that your clothing will actually be more flattering.

Do Not Skimp On Tailoring

You might not realize that tailoring is relatively inexpensive, but it will have a major impact on the way that your clothing fits you. Tailoring can make the difference between your outfit looking sloppy or frumpy and being completely put together.

Look At Subtle Accessorising

You should never feel that you have to hide yourself with baubles to feel beautiful. You should look at a fun and outsized print instead. Hats and fascinators are also a fun accessory and they can help you pull off that bold look that you are going for.

Wide Belts Are Your Styling Friend

If you do not have the time to take your shirt or skirt to the tailor, try throwing on a wide …

Beach Fashion It’s Not All Swimsuits and Sarongs

Posted on Posted in fashion

The beach is an ideal place to hang out and work on my tan, for about half an hour, then, I’ve tanned all I need and it’s time for me to move on. Since I seem to tan so quickly, I want to get on with my day and that means that there is far more than just the beach.

Beach Wear

When it comes to beachwear, there’s more than just bikinis and of course, rompers. I myself prefer beach dresses and skirts. They’re cool and comfortable and stay with the outdoorsy theme. Of course, there are times that swimsuits are a must, however, you can also opt for other cute beachwear and go above and beyond the swimsuit or the romper for that matter.

When I pack for my beach vacation, I look for things that will be comfortable and stylish. I want to look great whether I’m on the beach, or off. Off the shoulder, styles are great fun and I really like them. I can pair these with skirts or dresses and look great. There are some days where I’m not spending my entire day playing in the sand.

I took photos in South Beach Miami and loved the afternoon I had. After I took these photos I took a walk on the empty beach. It was fun to explore and capture some great shots of the city from a different angle. I wore a nice spaghetti strap dress and ankle strap style sandals. I added some funky jewellery for a taste all my own. It was comfortable and fun.

Beach Fashion

I love to elevate my fashion style and here’s how I do it.

  • Sandals

I always bring sandals. I can wear them with just about anything. I try to focus on what all I’ll be doing and have a few different pair for different outfits. It’s important that they’re comfortable as I’ll be doing a lot of walking.

  • Jewellery

I don’t add a lot of sparkly jewellery. I choose things that are very natural and fit the scene. Beads and beachy colours work well and I love things that look natural like leaves and branches.

  • Sunglasses

Sunglasses are a must-have item. I have several pairs. I can use them to hide my eyes if I’m tired or overdoing it. I can use them if I choose to not wear makeup. They add a flash to my style and look great no matter what I’m doing.

  • Dresses

I am not into the teeny tiny bikini. I’d rather wear something with a bit more fabric. However, to each their own. I choose more reserved clothing items such as caftans, coverups and fun dresses that have a bit of style. I can wear them with a swimsuit or alone and still look fantastic. Dresses are the ideal choice and I love to mix and match my accessories.

  • Shorts

For those who dislike dresses, choose separates like chinos or fun beach tops. JC Crew has some great beach shorts …

How to choose the right bra with the right dress

Posted on Posted in fashion

One of the most confusing things that women have to do is decide which bra goes well with which dress? We are often stuck with the worry that the bra seam line is showing or how we can cover those awkward bulges from padded bras!

There are a few simple rules that you can follow both when you get the best online bra shopping done and also when you choose the bra that you will wear with attire. Seemingly easy, but in practical usage, it is something of botheration and so here are some tips that will help you to choose the right bra with your dress:

  1. Well, when you are wearing t shirts then it is best to opt for t shirt bras. Do not go for bras which come with seams because if the material of the t shirt is body hugging then there is a high possibility that the seam will stick out, which of course is not desirable. So you can go for t shirt bras because they work really well with t shirts, or if you do not have one, wear a slip inside and then on top of it wear the top.
  2. When you are heading out to the gym, you will again need t shirt bras. You can wear these solo or you can wear a top on top of these bras. Well if you want to wear a top on the t shirt bra when you are going to the gym, make sure that the top is a loose one or else you will start sweating from the two clothes that you are wearing, and tire yourself out faster.
  3. Well if you are going for a padded bra, you have to make sure that it is of a good quality. It is important that you get rid of the ones that are old and odd wires are sticking out from here and there. Do not team up padded bras ever with body hugging tops or dresses, since then the padding shows. Under wired push up bras a strict ‘no’ to when it comes to body hugging materials because then it looks really awkward and no matter how hard you try, you won’t be able to conceal the bulges. So, keep this in mind when you get your best online bra shopping
  4. You can go for bralettes when it comes to heading out to the beach. You can wear these with a loose top on top of it to create a perfectly sexy beach look, or if you can just opt for the bralet if you are planning on spending some time tanning on the beach.
  5. And when it comes to backless blouses, do not try to go for off shoulder bras. These have a tendency to be pulled down and half of the time, the bra back strap shows. So, go for blouses that come with padding, so that you do not have to wear a bra with it.

So, these are …

Fashion Tips: Women’s Dresses

Posted on Posted in clothing, fashion, women

It is fair to say that the majority of women love fashion and wearing beautiful clothing. It is probably equally fair to say, that only a minority of women choose to wear dresses as part of their clothing. There are many reasons for this, but mostly it is due to a lack in confidence in their ability to carry-off a casual and natural air when wearing dresses.

However, there is nothing more simple, or easy, to wear than a casual dress. Here, we will offer some advice on the types of dresses available today, in the hope that by understanding a little, a lot of confidence can be gained and that perhaps a few more women will experiment with their clothing and begin to wear dresses with poise and self-assurance. If just one woman changes her mind, and decides to experiment with dresses, then this article has done its job correctly.

There are various styles of dress, which can be separated into different categories depending on their cut. There are many styles of dress, from the casual dress that can be worn every day, to the formal dress that is generally worn only on special occasions. In this latter category is the gown, made famous through various fairytales, such as Cinderella and Rapunzel – and many girls spend their childhoods dreaming of the opportunity when they can finally wear a gown themselves.

In adulthood, there are many opportunities for wearing such a dress, most notable are the end-of-school Dinner Dance, graduation ceremonies, and most of all, weddings. The gown style dress is arguably the most feminine style of dress, flattering the figure in a manner that is attractive, and yet, not too revealing. Although they are not ‘sexy’ in the sense that a little black dress may be, they are supremely alluring nonetheless.

Beyond the gown, there are various styles of casual dress, such as the mini-dress, the sheath dress, the shift dress, the sweater dress…so much so, in fact, that women are spoilt for choice. And given the incredible range of dresses that can be found, there is certain to be a cut/style to suit even the most ardent of dress-protesters! Dresses can make a statement to the world about the type of person you are, saying ‘I am confident, chic, and sure of who I am’ – no other item of clothing can boast quite that reputation, with the exception, perhaps, of the stiletto heel.

Different countries have different traditions when it comes to wearing dresses, and indeed, even in the UK, until the Women’s Movement of the 1960s, it was practically unheard of for women to wear trousers!…
