Bring your A-game to the office: Who is really responsible for building staff morale?

Bring your A-game to the office: Who is really responsible for building staff morale? | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it
Staff morale is frequently discussed, with plenty of articles and opinions on the best ways to achieve this from an employer’s standpoint. But in this article Mat Jacobson considers the topic in a slightly unusual fashion, asking, "Who is really responsible for building staff morale?"   The answer is seemingly so obvious that this question never gets asked. Most people would assume it goes without saying that an employer should spend a lot of time and effort in building staff morale. However I have a view that is quite different. The topic of how to build staff morale has implicit…

Neuromarketing is overrated and an over-fascination with science is silly

Neuromarketing is overrated and an over-fascination with science is silly | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it
Professor Byron Sharp writes in this article that marketing's current fascination with neuroscience is overblown. Prof Sharp is the director of the Ehrenberg-Bass Institute at the University of South Australia and author of How Brands Grow and the new textbook Marketing: Theory, Evidence, Practice. In this article I put marketing’s current fascination with experimental psychology in perspective. But before I start I must say something complimentary about Philip Kotler. Now, that probably seems odd given that ‘the Kotlerian view’ (that marketing is largely about developing a highly differentiated product that appeals to a distinct segment of the market; and that this…

How many years of income in your 401(k)?

How many years of income in your 401(k)? | Digital-News on Scoop.it today | Scoop.it
How many employers are wasting the money they spend on employee match contributions? The ICI report includes much larger plans and uses an asset-weighted average expense level for mutual funds rather than an unweighted average expense level. While the model measures in dollars, it also converts the amounts accumulated into years of final income - the basis for most retirement planning. Most people have 60 percent to 70 percent of their contributions in stocks, a mix that historically could be expected to grow at an annualized rate of about 8 percent. 1 If you invest in Vanguard Balanced Index Admiral shares, with expenses of 0.09 percent, with an IRA you'll accumulate 9.14 years of final income. In other words, the employer may be wasting most of his matching dollars on the financial services industry. 1 In most small plans - such as small medical groups, legal firms, etc. - the big dogs have the largest investment accumulations.
