BINGO WITH SENIORS

bingoSenior citizens, for some reason, are so into bingo. As in passionately. They really take it really seriously! Besides, bingo brings the thrill and excitement of gambling and yet is slow enough for people of a more advanced age. While it is a far cry from the Vegas sexiness of poker or roulette, bingo is perfect for the demographic that has embraced it.

Bingo is an activity that provides in spades things that an older person needs to remain healthy, active, and happy well into their twilight years. It keeps them from being loners and being lonely. It provides them with the human connections, opportunities to laugh, and argue, and flirt, which every person needs. Bingo brings with it a social life, a chance to build and keep relationships and friendships.

Bingo gives seniors something to be excited about, it is a good reason to get up and get dressed. It provides physical activity that does not tax their energies too much. They can hobble to the venue with their canes or walkers to that senior center in Orange County, and it’s okay. If their hearing aids are acting up and they can’t hear the numbers being called out, they can check the board.

Also Bingo requires a certain level of alertness and concentration, as well as hand-eye coordination. And the more these are used and exercised, the less likely it is for these faculties to fade. Seniors who do bingo are quicker in mind and more coordinated than those who don’t.

So, yes, bingo is good.

Power Washing for a Fresh Look

A power washer is a pressurized mechanical sprayer that is used for removing all sorts of dirt (dust, grime, scum, mud, mold) from all sorts of surfaces (cars, tiles, walls, pavements). Remember our geology topics during middle school, when the teacher talked about rivers that carved canyons out of mountains or little streams that broke down boulders? The same pressure works with power washers and dirt. Except that it doesn’t take hundreds of thousands of years, due to the amplification of the pressure of the water.

The components of a power washer are pretty simple:

* A motor that drives a high pressure water pump

* A hose that can stand under the pressure

* A trigger -style switch

These all work together the way gently easing your thumb from the mouth of a freshly opened soda bottle after shaking it vigorously. The shaking builds pressure the way a motor would, and the bottle’s mouth is like the those, and your thumb is the trigger, and decreasing the size of the opening creates a more powerful stream.

As a cleaning implement, power washers are powerful instruments that can make any old surface look like new by blasting off years and layers of dirt, cobwebs, bird droppings, and other environmental deposits with streams of highly pressurized water. Every surface the water touches it cleans, even the tiny corners and crannies that are so hard to reach with rags and brushes. Cleaning the façade of a building with a power washer works like a magical makeover, making it look younger and more attractive. It will certainly create bigger change with just a bit of water than if applying a coat of paint. And it’s faster and more cost efficient too. Giving such a thorough cleaning also helps protect a building from the consequences of residue buildup and oxidation.

There are a lot of service companies that can provide this kind of cleaning service, with a base fee covering the service, plus labor and equipment. For homeowners and business owners in Orange County, RueVac is one service provider that you can call to wash down your building.

The Universality of Etiquette

executive search firmWith the advent of ever new social situations brought about by technology, business, and ever-changing cultural norms, people oftentimes choose to disregard the art of social graces, or are simply at a loss as to the right and proper thing to do or say.

At the core of good etiquette is the attitude of respect and consideration for the people that one encounters. A general rule of thumb when in doubt on the proper speech or conduct is to choose to do or say that which makes the other person feel good and at ease, and brings him or her the least inconvenience or discomfort. The Golden Rule also applies: Treat others as you wish to be treated.

Good etiquette therefore, ought to be practiced in all areas of life, be in personal or professional. Although its customs and patterns may be already be in place in your company. It certainly would do well for your workplace environment to be more aware of it and to consciously start bringing it back in fashion, starting with these basic rules, which hold for any industry — whether you work for a food catering company or in an executive recruitment firm like Boyle Ogata Bregman – and in practically any situation, be it job interviews or business lunches or company picnics.

* Be punctual. Don’t be late, inform the people involved if you are going to be late. Punctuality also means promptly responding to phone calls, emails and other correspondence within 24 hours, even if it is only to acknowledge the receipt of the communication and that you will respond more comprehensively at a later date.

* Forego the virtual in favor of the actual. When you are with other people “in the flesh”, put away your mobile devices. Do not answer phone calls, emails, or texts. Certainly no games, tweets, or status updates.

* Say “please” and “thank you”. Do not take common courtesy for granted. These words may be short and simple but they contribute a whole lot to good and harmonious relationships.

* Shaking hands is another social convention that is taken for granted. But human touch is a powerful thing, and greeting people with a handshake immediately sets the groundwork for a positive outcome in the encounter that follows.

The Joy of Telecommuting While My Company Relocates

... , Human Resources Policy and Procedure Management | SWING SoftwareI’m in the process of moving from Texas to California. My company is relocating, so that means I’ll be moving in just a few months. Throughout the transition, everyone is being allowed to work from home. It’s great! I’ve never telecommuted before, but I now understand why everyone always raves about it. I feel like I’m able to be so much more productive. This morning, I came downstairs and made some coffee in my pajamas. While it was brewing, I turned on my computer, opened kin hr and a few other work-related programs, and settled in for a great day at work.

As a human resources coordinator, my tasks vary every day. I do a lot of data entry, and I process a lot of changes. I see everything from pay changes, to notices of employment, to terminations come through my inbox.

Two of the areas I’d like to develop professionally would be employee relations and performance reviews. Prior to telecommuting, I had some exposure to these areas, but I did not personally have responsibility in either of these areas. I know that in order to be competitive and in order to grow, I need to be more hands on and develop these skills. My manager has promised me that when we move into our new office, I’ll be given additional responsibilities that include these areas. I’m very excited!

For the time being, I’ll gladly work from home and enjoy this extra time with my family. There’s nothing like being able to roll out of bed and immediately go to work. I’m able to pick my kids up from school, which is something I didn’t have time to do before. I even have time to drop them off at dance practice and watch them rehearse. It’s the little things in life that make me happy. I’m looking forward to the move, but I’m enjoying this time while I have it.

I Ordered a Three Month Supply of African Mango

African Mango DietI have been overweight for as long as I can remember. I was pleasantly plump as a child and by the time I had graduated from college, I was carrying around an extra 70 pounds. I had tried so many different diets to lose the extra weight. Some of them worked for a bit, but I always gained the weight back. My sister knew of my struggles in this area, so she would often send me email tips and notes of encouragement. One email simply said to check out the african mango at superafricanmango.co sale.

I had never heard of this, but I knew that she would not send me anything without first checking it out herself. Knowing that it passed her test, I was curious and went to see what African mango was. The website explained how an extract from the African mango has incredible properties where the human body is concerned. It speeds up a person’s metabolism which causes a chain reaction in a number of ways. Not only does it lower a person’s weight, but it can also lower cholesterol and help with other health issues.

The more I read, the more I knew I wanted to try it for myself. I went ahead and ordered a three month supply since the prices were really good, and it did not take long to be delivered. Knowing that the company I ordered it from is a reputable supplier made all the difference in the world to me. Because of this, I had no reservations at all about taking this supplement on a regular basis. Within the first three weeks, I lost 10 pounds. My weight loss didn’t stop there either. I was able to continue to drop several pounds the following couple of weeks. I am going to order some more because I am really liking the person I am becoming as I continue to lose this weight.

Conducting Performance Reviews on Employees

Making an individual performance review on every employee is essential. This can help any company and business in growing and developing itself.  Aside from that, conducting performance reviews will also help employees to work better and harder. This prompts them to do well, especially when they are compensated for their hard work.

individual performance reviewIn doing an individual performance review, you need to schedule the interview ahead of time. Inform the employee of the meeting and tell him the purpose of the meeting. You can also tell the employee to do a self-review on what he thinks are his strengths and weaknesses.

Start your meeting with light conversation. This helps in making the employee calm and able to open up during your discussion. You wouldn’t want your employee to feel pressured about the individual performance review. You can ask him about things that you remembered during your past interview. You can ask how his kids are doing or if he is still jogging regularly. This can be helpful in breaking the ice.

Try not to make the review stressful for the employees. Make them comfortable and at ease with your questions. Use the same questionnaires for every individual performance review if possible. This is a good idea especially if you will be doing the performance evaluation regularly. Consistency will definitely make every meeting easier and simpler so the employees can know what to expect.

If you already have a rating of the employee’s performance, tell him right away about it. Explain its components and how the rating was given. Add why he had such rating, especially if there was a particular event that led to that rating.

A two-way feedback system is also preferred. Ask the employee for feedback about his performance. You can inquire if he agrees with the rating and his reasons for having a different viewpoint if that is the case. You can also ask how he can improve his performance and have a better rank. This will help him in analyzing his own performance and will make him do better on the next evaluation.

individual performance review

Write down the important points during the meeting. Specify the rating given to the employee and the questions he asked. Include the things you’ve observed in the meeting and how it went. Also add your evaluation and note if a follow-up will be required during the next individual performance review.

What are Performance Review Phrases?

Nowadays, we’ve seen and received performance review phrases that have really caught our attention. But does everyone understand the true meaning of these?

performance review phrasesPerformance review phrases can be work quality, quantity, productivity, technical skills, interpersonal skills, management skills, and more but we should also note that a phrase can be either negative or positive. These are often used in Human Resources Management wherein you will give comments about the applicant, his or her skills, possibility to get the job, and current standing.

 

Organizations and companies also use these performance review phrases to provide feedback, encourage the employee’s development as well as to assess the employee’s progress and contribution to the company and organization. Performance review phrases are euphemisms wherein you are using nicer or better words to describe the situation or something unpleasant. It is better to be pleasant, but still in a businesslike manner, and to stick to the subject.

 

You could also use these phrases in following ways: commending an employee for an outstanding performance, showing some room for improvement to maximize productivity, or in expressing aspects of the job where the employee did not meet the company’s objectives. They are also used to settle misunderstandings and disagreements, especially when you want to make sure that the employee completely understands whatever you are discussing. This will ultimately lead to the development of action points where the employee can make significant improvements in his performance. They are also used to express your confidence towards your employee’s ability in learning and improving, if you need a follow-up, if you wish to reach agreement on an action plan, and when you need to announce a salary increase without getting other employee’s attention.

 performance review phrases

You should categorize your phrases in different ways: attendance, communication skills, attitude towards work, creativity and innovation, dependability, and ability to work effectively in a team. It should also cover the employee’s future potential as a manager or supervisor and things and aspects of the job that he needs to work on to reach those goals. Always remember that the selection of phrases to be used for the performance reviews should reflect objectivity and professionalism. This is to avoid sarcasm and to fight the temptation to make it personal. Keep in mind that this is business and this process should be professionally handled. Whether they are your applicants or employees they deserve to be treated in an objective and professional way.

Conducting Better Performance Reviews

 

Conducting a performance review that is good, efficient, and effective starts with expectations that are clear in terms of the reasons why it is being done. One good reason would be for the annual employee evaluation where rewards, promotions, and bonuses are based on the performances of the organization and the individual. The supervisor, even prior to the actual performance evaluation itself, may do this by making regular reviews and observations, and documenting employee behavior or encounters wherein an employee was given big and challenging tasks.

The information and observations gathered are also valuable in evaluating if the employee is already a candidate for promotion. Another reason would be to render information that is useful for the career growth, development, and improvement of an employee. But to be able to effectively do that and get much better results, the performance review must first be grounded in trust, honesty, and respect.

Each and every one of the employees is unique, having individual differences in terms of skills, knowledge, abilities and the like. Because of this, the managers and employees should clarify and set performance expectations. By doing this, the supervisor can measure the effectiveness of the employees. Conducting a performance review provides an on-going series of discussions between the supervisor and the employee, having the following expectations:

1. The role of the supervisor being an objective judge of the employee’s performance and ability to coach the employee in achieving better results.

2. Ownership of results by the employee.

3. A two-way feedback system where the employee is given the chance to analyze his/her strengths and weaknesses.

4. To share the conceptualization or development of future visions and goals.

Conducting a performance review gives the employee and the supervisor the chance to discuss what happened in the past, its results, and the knowledge gained from each event. The content of the review is about what to retain from the successes of the past and what to alter or change for the future in order to accomplish the best possible results. With common or mutual understanding of both the expectations and the desired results and outcomes, the employee and the supervisor can create shared values leading to greater chances of success and improvement in their respective sectors, adding and aiding the organization towards the achievement of its vision.
