first_imgPurplebricks has announced to the London Stock Exchange that it is to launch in New York in Spring this year, the second area it has targeted since establishing its US arm last year.CEO Michael Bruce has also revealed that the company has this month also expanded its existing Los Angeles operation, moving into neighbouring San Diego, Sacramento and Fresno.The company says it is targeting the New York area because it has some of the fattest ‘standard’ commission rates in the US at 7%, a high average sale value of $561,000 and a very busy market – transaction rates are double that anywhere else in the States.Michael Bruce (pictured, left), who recently stepped down as UK CEO to grapple with the company’s global expansion, says: “It is a sign of confidence in the potential of the US business that we are today announcing our expansion to cover both the East and West coast, with our planned entry into the New York market.“With higher than average rates of commission and transaction volumes, New York was the natural first move on the East Coast for Purplebricks.Referring to US CEO Eric Eckardt’s (pictured, right) previous form in the New York property market including a Purplebricks-style agency, and Senior Vice President Phil Felice’s time at Foxtons’ operation in New York, Michael Bruce says:  “Our local team have an in-depth understanding of the US market and considerable experience of New York specifically.“Whilst early days in the US we are encouraged by the exceptional quality of the Licensed Real Estate Agents that we are able to recruit, which reinforces our belief that we will deliver a better service for our customers whilst saving them thousands of dollars and delivering attractive returns for our shareholders as the business continues to grow.”Phil Felice, as well as experience of US online residential auctions and other property businesses, worked in New York for Foxtons’ doomed local operation as Vice President of Sales for three years until it shut down in 2007.Purplebricks Michael Bruce Phil Felice Eric Eckardt January 24, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

first_imgSt Anne’s JCR has unanimously passed a motion to give singer Cher, the “Goddess of Pop”, the status of honorary member.The proposed motion noted that, “there is currently a lack of honorary JCR members, and a lack of glamour in JCR meetings.”Cher is the first person to be granted the distinction of honorary membership of St Anne’s. The college was one of the first establishments in Oxford to offer education to women and remained an all female college until 1979.Andrew Hall, who proposed the motion, claimed that Cher has “pioneered autonomy for women in the entertainment since the 1960s”, thus making her the ideal candidate for membership of St Anne’s JCR. However he also admitted that the proposal was mostly humorous, adding, “Let’s face it, honorary motions are just a bit of fun to liven up standard JCR meetings.”The motion was passed without opposition. As Oscar Boyd, former St Anne’s JCR president, who seconded the motion, put it, “Are there any Cher haters in the world?”However he himself was apparently sceptical about the motion at first, but conceded that “After Andy [Hall – the proposer] performed his Cher routine I was convinced.”Yet there were some amendments made to the motion. There is to be a life sized cardboard cut out of Cher on display in the JCR room but until this arrives then Hall himself is required to dress up as Cher for JCR meetings.Cher has been an incredibly successful artist since the 60s selling over 100 million solo albums worldwide. She has also had success in her other ventures including winning an Oscar for her acting work in the film Moonstruck.This year she has released another studio album. The versatility and longevity of her talent will hopefully be reflected in St. Anne’s. Hall said, “After the nuclear apocalypse all that will be left will be cockroaches and Cher – I want that kind of durability for St Anne’s.”last_img read more

first_img× Melanie Llanes and her husband had been trying for a child for two years, through fertility treatments and disappointments. Finally, when delivery of her son Caden – meaning “little warrior” in Welsh for his resilience – was coming up quickly, she trusted only the expert maternity care at Jersey City Medical Center (JCMC) to help bring him home safe and sound.With the closure of maternity services at Christ Hospital in August, Jersey City Medical Center was the only hospital in Hudson County that continued to provide comprehensive women’s health services. And while COVID was disrupting access to health care, JCMC did not divert patients to other sites at the height of the COVID-19 lockdown. Llanes herself is a nurse at Mountainside Hospital in Montclair, so along with her husband, she knew JCMC has some of the leading maternity doctors and an all private rooms maternity wing that rivals the best in the tri-state area.Although baby Caden is doing fine now, the birth was not without some hiccups. Originally Llanes was scheduled to be induced at 40 weeks to avoid complications from her gestational diabetes, but an impatient baby came two and a half weeks early. After delivery, Caden had a high bilirubin count, the primary cause of jaundice, so he required special nutrients to bring his levels down.When he was having trouble latching and needed formula, Llanes was worried he would never take to breastfeeding. The Director of Nursing for Maternal Child Services, Leigh Dungee-Maignan, took the time to sit with Llanes and share her personal experience with her baby. Dungee-Maignan’s success story was an inspiration to Llanes.“Childbirth can be a stressful time at the end of nine months of pregnancy,” said Dr. Patricia Chau, Llanes’ physician. “An elevated bilirubin count is not uncommon, but that does not make parents’ concerns any less valid. I’m proud that we provided an excellent experience for Llanes, as all expecting mothers deserve.”“Everyone at Jersey City Medical Center demonstrated a passion for their work, and I always felt supported,” commented Llanes. “I’ve spoken with expecting friends who are concerned about the pandemic and giving birth with a mask, and to them I say you could not be in better hands at JCMC.”“And as far as the mask,” Llanes added, “you’ll be too busy even to notice it.”last_img read more

first_imgUnion members at Park Cakes are currently being balloted for industrial action, following a dispute over pay.Roy Streeter, regional officer at the Bakers Food and Allied Worker’s Union (BFAWU), told British Baker that his members – around 700 across the business – were due an annual pay rise on the last Sunday in March. “The company said that it was unable to give an increase then, but would revisit the issue later on in the year. Our members rejected that decision, and they have now said it will revisit it in September. “The problem we have is that all they’re saying is that they will revisit it, they are not saying that there will be an increase, and they’re not saying that it will be back-dated.“We’re having to put something in place to protect our members’ interests,” he added.The ballot will take place over two weeks, with the result expected on 20 August.Anne Allen, chief executive of Park Cake Bakeries, said: “We are committed to constructive engagement with our employees at a time when the cake and dessert industry continues to face competitive and pricing pressure. “We are working to manage these pressures while continuing to deliver high-quality, affordable products to our customers and support growth and jobs over the long-term.”The company declined to comment on the details of the pay dispute.last_img read more

first_imgWhether you’re a fan of the Las Vegas strip or not, you can’t argue with Steve Wynn when he said “Human resources isn’t a thing we do. It’s the thing that runs our business.”Credit unions everywhere are relying on evolving technology to attract and maintain members. But what is your credit union doing to empower human resources (HR) – the backbone of your organization?The goal of every HR department is to hire and retain the best candidates. Candidates that will be invested in your credit union and go above and beyond to get the job done. Candidates who will ensure member satisfaction and, ultimately, increase profitability.To be both cost- and compliance-conscious while keeping member service top of mind, your credit union need to get as much value as possible out of their existing technology investments. One of the most cost-effective options is to leverage the capabilities of your existing document management or enterprise content management (ECM) solution across your credit union.Here are three areas in HR where your ECM solution can help you the most.RecruitingYour ECM solution captures and stores applications and resumes as they are received. With that applicant information centrally located, everyone on the HR team has access to all the information they need, when they need it, to make smart hiring decisions, not blind bets – before the competition.Once the ECM solution captures applications, it automatically forwards them for quick decision making. And when you’ve chosen a candidate, document templates generate the offer letter, route it through approvals, and track changes by managers so your credit union quickly sends the offer letter. This allows recruiters to spend more time identifying the best candidates for jobs and less time organizing paperwork and supporting documentation to begin the search in the first place.OnboardingECM gives HR personnel the tools they need to better manage the onboarding process and provide new employees with smooth transitions and sweeting their honeymoon period. By providing HR with a holistic view of all related information in a single location, staff easily tracks the entire onboarding process and monitor tasks across departments. Through automation, increased visibility and centralized information management, new employees are ready for work on day one.Policies & proceduresWhen HR policies and procedures are stored on paper, ensuring employees review and acknowledge these documents is time consuming and prone to error. Using your ECM solution, HR departments efficiently create, distribute and track employee acknowledgement of policies and procedures while reducing associated administrative tasks such as filing, copying and mailing documents. With this documented proof of both policy distribution and employee sign off, organizations strengthen compliance and minimize liability while holding all dealers and players, er, I mean employees accountable.HR’s applicability for ECM has mainly grown due to legal and compliance reasons, such as protection against age-discrimination lawsuits or certifying an employee’s receipt of a required form. But it also involves the growing need for efficiencies in storage and processing of documents in personnel offices. From recruiting and onboarding to payroll and records management, ECM manages documents and processes so HR can focus on employees, not paper.Running a successful credit union has nothing to do with beginner’s luck. There are opportunities for process improvement within every single credit union. In the next part of this series, we’ll take a look at how as a connected credit union, you can leverage your ECM solution to transform your accounting processes. 67SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Michelle Harbinak Shapiro Michelle Shapiro has more than a 15 years of experience in the banking industry to her role as Financial Services Industry Expert at Hyland Software.

Quimson holds a master’… Web: www.bluepointsolutions.com Details Today’s mobile-first consumers expect their financial institution to be accessible wherever and whenever they want. In fact, Javelin predicts that 81% of U.S. adults will use mobile banking by 2020. With more consumers choosing to bank through the mobile channel each year, how can banks and credit unions create a powerful mobile reputation in 2016? Adopting these three key standards for the mobile channel will ensure your stellar mobile reputation.Number One: Anywhere Account Opening ProcessYour mobile reputation starts with a first impression—opening an account. Your mobile version of this process should allow for fully end-to-end, all-inclusive account creation, funding, and identify verification all through a tablet or a smartphone. If this process is not user-friendly or convenient enough, your institution could fall victim to the now prevalent 80% mobile account opening abandonment rate (Mobile Strategy Partners).Number Two: Intuitive and Responsive Mobile Banking Application Design and ExperienceCreating a fully-optimized and responsive mobile experience is critical to your mobile reputation. Chances are high that if consumers perceive a less than satisfactory experience, they’ll happily close your app and move on to a different institution’s app that’s more user friendly—costing you their business. Design a mobile banking app in which navigation between each screen and prompt requires as few maneuvers and keystrokes as possible.Number Three: Industry Standard Features and TechnologyConsumers expect to be able to conduct the same transactions through the mobile channel as they can through online banking and in your branch. In the past, specific mobile features and technology used to distinguish one institution from another. Today, features like remote deposit capture, mobile account opening, funds transfers, mobile bill pay, and mobile loan applications, are expected features of any mobile banking app, and should be on your roadmap.Credit unions need to make their mobile reputation a priority in 2016. This includes the new account opening process, providing an intuitive user interface on all devices (smartphone and tablet), and offering staple features and technology to give account holders the ultimate level of convenience. Implementing these three baseline standards will allow your institution to construct a solid reputation for excellence.last_img read more
