Nutricraft provides safer alternatives to traditional stainless steel cookware

Posted by Hailey Roos on Thu, Jul 22, 2021 @ 09:00 AM

About Nutricraft

Nutricraft is a provider of safe, non-toxic, and health-conscious high-quality cookware. Their goal is to provide non-toxic cookware to keep the original food nutrients intact and educate people on safe cooking and proper nutrition that will have a lasting impact on consumers’ health and nutrition. After launching Nutricraft in the Australian market nearly three years ago, they have had massive success globally. 

Nutricraft

Nutricraft uses unique 316Ti Titanium Stainless Steel on the interior of their cookware, which makes the product 20x more resistant to corrosion and pitting than any other stainless steel brand. This durable, hypoallergenic, non-porous, and non-reactive cooking surface creates the best possible cooking experience, allowing users to cook with less to no oil, as the minimum moisture cooking method maximizes nutrition. 

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Nutricraft pioneered the “Try Before You Buy” program so people could experience the cookware firsthand and see how Nutricraft can benefit them. They are the only cookware brand offering this program. With instructional videos, Nutricraft teaches consumers how to use their cookware. 

In addition, during the pandemic, Nutricraft transitioned its business to online marketing, and sales continued to grow as more people spent their time at home cooking. 

As Nutricraft hit more and more business milestones, they started the Nutricraft Livelihood Program, which helps uplift people from poverty and make a positive impact on lives.  

After the huge success of the ‘Try Before You Buy’ program, Nutricraft has rolled out a  global campaign for Reseller’s Program.  It offers business opportunities for entrepreneurs and professionals who want to earn extra income, start their own business, or sell cookware products in their stores or shops.  

Nutricraft

Nutricraft has envisioned a trusted brand that does not only care about health and wellness but also helps in income generation and livelihood support.  Through Reseller’s Program, everyone has an equal chance to reach their financial goal while enjoying the lifelong benefits of safe, smart, and healthy cooking.

Nutricraft won the Gold Stevie for Company / Organization Categories - Startup of the Year - Consumer Products Industries in the 2020 International Business Awards® and Bronze in the 2020 Asia-Pacific Stevie® Awards for Excellence in Corporate Innovation.

Tailoring Wellbeing During the Pandemic

Posted by Hailey Roos on Tue, Jul 20, 2021 @ 12:53 PM
  • Taylor Medical Center in Jackson, TN serves mostly uninsured or underinsured patients in the community
  • Dr. Mechelle Taylor Moragne provided unwavering service to the community during the pandemic, including creating a free testing center, providing free masks, and distributing free vaccinations

About Taylor Medical Center 

Taylor Medical Center is a primary care facility that focuses on preventive health and chronic care management. Dr. Mechelle Taylor Moragne opened the Center in 2017 with the goal of being an advocate for patients and providing exceptional medical care. She was the first medical director of a clinic that served mostly underinsured and uninsured patients, who often carried a high burden of chronic conditions. Her style of care relies on the input of the patient, ensuring that they feel heard and seen. Dr. Taylor Moragne believes that each patient that enters her office deserves the best care possible regardless of socioeconomic status. Her motto is “Tailor your well-being”, and that's exactly how she works with patients.

Dr. Mechelle Taylor Moragne of Taylor Medical Center was nominated for the Frontline Medical Hero of the Year Award for her untiring service to the Jackson, TN community during the COVID-19 pandemic. While most businesses closed doors and providers worked from home, Dr. Taylor Moragne and the staff at Taylor Medical Center kept the doors open to the patients of Jackson. 

taylor medical center 2Many patients found themselves without access to medical care and were unsure where to turn for help. Because most of these patients in this region of West TN are uninsured or underinsured, they have the highest burden of chronic health conditions, making them even more vulnerable to the effects of the coronavirus. 

These patients needed to have their illnesses managed, medications refilled, and guidance delivered about decreasing their risk and exposure during the pandemic. Dr. Taylor Moragne met and provided them with a COVID testing center at no cost. When LabCorp (the facility used to process the test) ran out of solution, swabs, and collection tubes, Dr. Taylor Moragne purchased these items to assure testing. She also became a community partner with the local Health Department to provide free masks to the Jackson community. Today, the Taylor Medical Center is providing free vaccinations to uninsured individuals in the Jackson, TN community, and is doing its part to get the vaccines into arms to beat the COVID pandemic. 

Taylor Medical Center won two Silver Stevie Awards: for COVID-19 Response Categories - Frontline Medical Hero of the Year, and for Company / Organization Categories - Minority-Owned Business of the Year in The 2021 American Business Awards®.

How to Successfully Manage a Hybrid Workforce

Posted by Severine Hierso on Wed, Jul 14, 2021 @ 11:14 AM

It’s been a year of extremes. Trading bustling office spaces for home offices, colleagues for cats and children, and entering into the world of online meeting spaces, managing your workforce has most likely had some changes. Some of these look likely to stick around, challenging and reshaping how we view work and productivity, requiring new, imaginative ways of managing your team. The current buzzwords are ‘hybrid working’, but what exactly is hybrid working and how can you manage it successfully?

What is hybrid working?

A hybrid is a mix of two different things – in this case, the mix of in-office working and online remote working. This has benefits as well as challenges, so it is worth spending some time preparing and setting structures in place to accommodate for it. This might be a daunting undertaking, but we’re here to make sure your hybrid workforce runs as smoothly as possible.

Source

 

Challenges

You might have already started running through all the difficulties facing a hybrid workforce and absolutely, there will be challenges. However, by acknowledging them early on, you can strengthen your hybrid workforce, anticipating and avoiding issues later on. Some challenges to be aware of upfront might be:

  • Difficulty collaborating across the workforce
  • Suitability of different work environments to different people
  • Avoiding prejudice or assumptions about either workplace
  • Ensuring security and privacy online
  • Flexibility required

Benefits

However, just because hybrid working faces some challenges, doesn’t mean it is without its benefits. These can add to your company’s appeal as an employer, whilst boosting the morale and loyalty within current employees. Depending on your company and the people you work with, the benefits can outweigh the challenges. These include:

  • Wider inclusivity and diversity of employees, particularly those with disabilities, chronic illness and other circumstances that make commuting difficult
  • Larger hiring area 
  • Reduced costs on office spaces
  • Greater flexibility in working hours
  • Workplaces more suited to employees 

What are you waiting for? Turn your team into a successful hybrid workforce quickly and easily with our guidance.

Key ways to manage hybrid workforces

Check-in with the individuals

A company is nothing without the employees, whatever role they take. So, the better you look after your employees, the more productive your company. This can be through one-to-ones or team meetings, any way to gauge how they are doing. Making use of the best RPA tools when scheduling check-ins can save time and ensure this is an automatic part of your week.

For hybrid workforces, communication between you and your team needs to be taken to the next level. Don’t assume that because someone has been working from home for the past year, that is their preference. Likewise, members of the team who have been in the offices may not thrive in that environment constantly. Having conversations clears up ambiguity and prevents issues from arising.

Make sure everyone is fully equipped

Not everyone in your workforce will have the same access to the equipment they need to work their best. While in office spaces, it is apparent if someone requires additional equipment to improve their workspace and they can easily join an IT helpdesk ticketing system when facing technical issues. This can be challenging when managing a hybrid workforce.

One way to check everyone is properly equipped is by listing the resources, equipment and technologies that would be available to them in the office. This includes laptops, second screens, and extends to less obvious things, like paper to print on, high internet speeds and a technical support team on call. Using this list, discuss with your employees what they need, and how the company can provide additional support for those both in the offices and working remotely.

Look for signs of burnout

This year has taken its toll on all of us, and your workers may be in different circumstances to where they were a year ago, six months ago, or even last month. Happy and healthy employees are more productive, creative and innovative, so it is worth watching over your team and finding ways to help them. Encouraging the whole team to do this for one another starts building community and can be more perceptive to individuals.

Working remotely doesn’t eliminate burnout, and can often be just as stressful as working in an office. The concerns of each person might differ, but they should be taken just as seriously. Showing a real interest in your team member’s well-being is a great quality in a manager and can provide early solutions to issues before they become problematic.

Create a regular team schedule

With a hybrid workforce, it can be hard to keep track of everyone and where they are at. Private cloud computing can help to some extent, but ensuring regular meetings as a whole team and in smaller task forces can help with organization and keeping tabs on everyone. This is key for clear and consistent communication across the office and remote workers.

Having a team schedule also gives advanced warning to workers regarding when they are needed in calls – perfect for those factoring in school runs, doctors visits, or additional demands on their time. This may apply to workers both remote and in-office, improving the working experience for the whole team.

Share resources

Having a shared drive and applications for instant messaging helps to accelerate projects and communication, especially between those in office and remote. Although emails are still necessary, they take longer to receive responses from and are not always suitable for sending files. By sharing resources and documents instantly, there is no delay between employees working together, regardless of their proximity to each other.

This is useful when searching for documents, not knowing who created or had them saved. Rather than asking everyone to look, anyone within the team can access the shared drive and find past documents without hassle. Using voice recognition software can further speed up this process, using AI to search through shared drives.

Source

Work hard, play hard

This year has been tough on everyone and adapting to hybrid working can put a strain on some. Take time as a team to have fun together, both remote and office workers. Use one of the myriads of online team-building exercises, have designated coffee breaks including remote workers, or find events where the whole team would be comfortable getting involved.

Having a strong team relies on the relationships between team members. So, although these activities might not seem directly productive, they can diminish division between office and remote workers, building up community spirit within your workforce.

Be flexible

Hybrid working gives employees additional flexibility to improve their work/life balance. Whether in flexible working hours, part or full-time remote working, or flexibility to take your dog to the vet, this improves the wellbeing of employees and gives them ownership over their work. 

Although you might anticipate needing flexibility with remote workers, it is equally needed for those returning to offices, or who never left. Being aware of this can prevent assumptions of what office working or remote working is, and allows each individual to have the same opportunities available.

Source

Prepare for change

We have adapted to a lot of change recently, becoming familiar with new rules and regulations and managing our teams through very different methods. This should act as a reminder to prepare for change and things not playing out how you anticipate. This could extend to the purposes of offices and meeting rooms changing, as well as ensuring you have business continuity planning software and procedures in place.

Be aware that the needs and preferences of your workforce might also change. Working remotely might be ideal for a parent during the school term, but during holidays working in the office may be better. Similarly, keen office workers might find themselves needing to work remotely while looking after vulnerable family members. Being open and ready for change makes conversations with employees around changing their work environment a lot easier, ensuring they can always work in a place suited to them.

It doesn’t have to be perfect, as long as it works

Hybrid workforces are a new and constantly improving aspect of companies, meaning there is no one way to perfectly manage your new hybrid team. What works for you depends on your workforce and the individuals within it. There are plenty of new developments to share the workload across your team, from dialler software, to synchronized calendars. In testing the ropes, mistakes and difficulties will happen, but don’t let this put you off. You’re in good company with many other businesses also making the move to hybrid working.

About Data Gumbo 

Data Gumbo started out as a data platform that connected to collected and standardized operational data to enable machine learning, AI, and condition-based maintenance systems. The company transitioned to utilizing blockchain after spotting an opportunity to eliminate a sizable cost inefficiency between an oil supermajor and one of its suppliers. With integrated real-time capabilities, GumboNet reduces contract leakage, frees up working capital, enables real-time cash and financial management, and delivers provenance unprecedented speed, accuracy, visibility, and transparency, as well as automated and accurate ESG standards measurement and reporting.

Data Gumbo was founded by entrepreneur and energy executive Andrew Bruce in 2016 and set out to build a solution to unify operational field data with automated smart contracts, resulting in GumboNet, the massively interconnected industrial smart contract network powered by blockchain that delivers transactional certainty in commercial relationships. 

Since 2020, Data Gumbo has experienced a rocket-like trajectory as adoption and business use cases have become evident to the most critical of global heavy-asset industries - especially as they navigate the crises of the past year. Data Gumbo is a broadly recognized innovator, as noted in the Forbes 2020 Energy Awards as the “Disruptive Innovator” and in being named to CB Insights Blockchain 50. 

Amid the pandemic and oil price crash, Data Gumbo achieved numerous milestones as a recognized leader, including a robust sales pipeline and customer base, doubling the size of the company, and adding several partnerships. Now Data Gumbo is being adopted at a fast clip - one indicator of recognition that its innovation is not only disruptive but critical to enable monetary and operational survival for coming out of crisis. 

GumboNet

The antithesis of token-hyped, public blockchains, Data Gumbo offers a purpose-built, private and permissioned blockchain network called GumboNet that enables and automates the execution of smart contracts for industrial enterprises. By transforming existing natural language contracts to “smart” digital contracts, the network creates validated, auditable, and immutable records delivering trust and value to counterparties. 

Available as a subscription, GumboNet frees users from excessive IT spend and the hefty administrative burdens required to build their own solution. Business outcomes include speed, accuracy, transparency, visibility, security, massive cost-savings, the removal of inefficiencies, and finally, trust. For example, service providers get paid for exactly what is delivered, and buyers pay only for what is measurably delivered; payment automation takes a typical 90-day invoice process down to as little as two days. 

GumboNet’s key differentiators include the capability for subscribers to create, configure, negotiate, and manage smart contracts that work in tandem with natural language contracts. The network is a purpose-built private, permissioned blockchain with no cryptocurrency, tokens, or mining. It operates as a single network of ledgers rather than non-interoperable point solutions, can restore massive data sets for complete visibility and audibility, integrate with existing legacy or IoT data sources, and guarantees interoperability with other subscribers. 

Blockchain delivers the ability to know and lower a subscriber’s cost, and GumboNet offers a path to navigate previously convoluted and resource-intensive issues around trust, accuracy, and the ability to verify data in the field. 

Data Gumbo won two Gold Stevie Awards for Company / Organization Categories - Most Innovative Company of the Year - Up to 100 Employees and for New Product & Service Categories - Business Technology - Blockchain Solution in The 2021 American Business Awards®.

Diese großartigen Arbeitgeber aus dem deutschsprachigen Raum wurden im letzten Jahr geehrt

Die Deutsche Telekom Services Europe SE aus Köln wurde im letzten Jahr mit zwei Gold und zwei Bronze Stevies ausgezeichnet. Eines der mit Gold gekürten Projekte war die Elternzeit-App – wir helfen den Müttern und Vätern in unserem Unternehmen, sich auf die schönste Zeit ihres Lebens zu konzentrieren.

Die Elternzeit-App ist eine digitale HR-App-Lösung für Telekom Mitarbeiter, die ein Kind erwarten, sich bereits im Mutterschutz oder in Elternzeit befinden oder Elternzeit beantragen möchten.

Die App verkürzt die Bearbeitungszeit für Vorgänge rund um Schwangerschaft, Mutterschutz und Elternzeit. Anstatt Anträge per Hand auszufüllen, per Post zu verschicken und auf eine Rückmeldung ohne Transparenz über den Auftragsstatus zu warten, können diese Dinge per App erledigt werden. Durch die Anzeige der möglichen Schritte haben werdende Eltern einen Überblick über den Status der abgegebenen Dokumente, ihre To-Do's und Termine. Die persönlichen Daten, Zugehörigkeiten im Unternehmen und Informationen zur Führungskraft sind hinterlegt. Private Kontakte, wie E-Mail-Adresse und Telefonnummer, können gepflegt werden. Auf diese Weise werden die Mitarbeiter über eventuelle Änderungen während der Elternzeit auf dem Laufenden gehalten. Darüber hinaus gibt es die Funktion "In Kontakt bleiben", mit der sich Eltern innerhalb des Unternehmens austauschen, Fragen beantworten und mit dem Unternehmen in Kontakt bleiben können.

Weitere Gewinner aus dem deutschsprachigen Europa sind Dentsply Sirona (Bensheim), DHL Supply Chain (Bonn), DP DHL (Bonn) und Swiss Re (Zürich).
