Qatar-world-cup

 

With the terrific win of Germany in the current Soccer World Cup 2014 which were perfectly hosted by Brazil at a total cost of $11 Billion with many complaining about such a lavish expenditure for a developing country like Brazil. The next world cup of 2018 are being held in Russia that already has the necessary infrastructure inplace as its also hosting the 2016 world Oympics and have already set a budget of about  for the event.

Qatar on the contrary would be the first Arab country to host the Soccer world cup in the Year 2022 and had to overcome huge odds win the contract to host the cup. The biggest hindrance was its hot climate that can become really unbearable during the summers that is around June-July when World cup is normally held. The temperature during this time can rise upto 50 degree Celsius. To overcome this hindrance all the stadiums are to be temperature controlled and Qatar would be using other advance technology to over this odd.

Qatar is preparing on a massive $200 billion on soccer world of which around $140 billion is for transportation infrastructure like world class airport development, roads and rail network and about $20 billion in Tourism infrastructure. It is also investing big on solar energy to power its stadium cooling systems and has been recruiting in large numbers to help it complete its projects on time.

Improving Employee Engagement in your Organization

May 28th, 2014 No comments

As an HR manager you have just conducted a successful internal survey about “employee job satisfaction” and the results are pretty impressive.  Do these results mean that your manpower is committed to your organization and is willing to go extra mile? According to the recent research done in HR field, an employee job satisfaction is not the primary driver but it’s rather an employee “attitude towards commitment” towards the company goals which are inculcated as personal goals that ensures an overall positive employee and employer relationship. Now, the important question is how an organization can develop this “attitude towards commitment” in its employees. And this question is even more important these days’s with companies employing fever employees where they can’t afford to have an employee which is not totally engaged as it can have a drastic effect on the company’s business.

Advantages for an organization whose employees have a positive “attitude towards commitment” for an organization are:

  1. Employees are motivated to handle tough problems and have more resilience during tough times faced by organizations.
  2. Employees contribute more to the bottom line by encouraging other employees whereby increasing their engagement level.
  3. Organizations are able to weather difficult times with less difficulty compared to organizations which have less engagement centric manpower because of fewer turnovers.
  4. Overall profitability of the organization increases.

Now, what are some of the strategies that are being used by organizations to boost employee “attitude towards commitment”:

  1. Tailor engagement programs across various teams: Let your employees know how they are contributing towards to company’s success and how their work is interrelated across various teams by conducting engagement programs.
  2. Reward the performer: Many organizations have either a blanket reward system or a very rigid reward system where the difference between a top performer and under performer is a difference of 10% in the overall reward system. To effectively engage with your employee’s reward in proportion to their contribution to the company’s success.
  3. Stop segregating the work atmosphere: Segregation between status hierarchies within an organization creates a barrier and fosters a feeling of “we” and “them”, which is not fruitful for an organization.  Rather, there should be feeling that everyone’s commitment towards the organization matters.
  4. 4.       Invest in non-monetary incentives:  While monetary incentives do work. However, sometimes a custom and personal incentive can also work. Like, a coupon for “fitness membership” or “complimentary dinner” etc. These tend to foster a feeling of togetherness and can boost an employee commitment level.

A recruitment agency is the one which will make you aware of the eligibility criteria set forth by the companies. A technical sales recruitment company is a guiding lamp which lays out precise steps to lead you to various MNC’s that are looking for sales engineers. They provide you with the necessary training and prepare you for the interviews so that you are equipped to handle the interview well.

Further, they make you comfortable with the work environment after your placement and also help you in various ways post your successful recruitment.

As previously mentioned, technical sales engineers mix technical knowledge with sales skills to provide advice and support on a range of technical services, products or applications. The clients that use the services of technical sales representatives are into highly specialized and scientific fields and to sell anything to them one need to be technically competent to explain the client about the various technical aspects of the product/service one is pitching for. Hence, technical sales representative most know the product thoroughly to make the right sale.

Apart from the sales aspect, technical sales engineers also play a pivotal role in after sales support to clients and are in regular touch with their clients even after the sale has been done. They liaise regularly with other members of the operations team and colleagues from various departments, such as research, development, design, purchasing, production and quality to name a few.

Generally, for any Technical Sales Engineer tasks typically involve:

  • searching for potential clients who might benefit from the services offered by him. One can search for potential clients by sustained marketing activities like attending trade shows, conferences and supplementary marketing events;
  • understanding client requirements and how the product/service he is offering would benefit the cleint
  • persuading clients that a product or service best satisfies their needs in terms of quality, price and delivery;
  • negotiating tender and contract terms and conditions to meet both client and company needs;
  • calculating client quotations and administering client accounts;
  • developing long-term associations with clients via managing and interpreting their requirements;
  • providing pre-sales technical assistance and product education, and after-sales support services;
  • analyzing costs and sales;

Complete knowledge and responsibility of all the technical aspects of the sale is critical for a successful sale and the working of the parent company.
