If the fashion for iced biscuits had been on the wane, The Biscuiteers have single-handedly made it their mission to revive the tradition in the UK.Having been inspired by highly decorated biscuit creations on a visit to New York, founder Sarah Moore and partner Stevie were inspired to start a bakery business in 2007. Now supplying many of the upmarket department stores in Britain, Moore has put pen to paper to share some of their product inspirations.As befits a largely gift-orientated business, many of the ideas here are seasonal, with clever twists such as biscuit advent calendars. While there are plenty of fashion cookies (dresses and shoes), it’s not all cutesy, with blokey biscuits for dads.With the Royal wedding approaching, why not try the ingenious bunting biscuits: Union Jack-decorated and hanging along a cord?
continue reading » They have been called many things, from entitled to humble, hardworking to lazy, overly reliant on their parents while at the same time independent. Tom Brokaw even famously tagged them as “the greatest generation since The Greatest Generation.” An enigma for retailers to attract and an adjustment for businesses to employ, Millennials (the generation loosely defined as those born between 1981 and 1996) have been simultaneously torn down and put on a pedestal by their peers and elders. But data doesn’t lie. With over 56 million in the US workforce according to US Census Bureau data, Millennials make up the greatest percentage of employees today, and are proving that they are just as hardworking and perhaps even more balanced in their approach than generations before them. Hiring Millennials and keeping them happy and engaged at your credit union is heavily reliant upon the traditional motivators: money and benefits. However, what sets this generation apart when it comes to job satisfaction is the level of importance they place on purpose and technology… working for a credit union whose mission is in-line with their primary values, and one that provides them with the latest technology to get their job done efficiently are major factors in retention.A Look at Millennials in the US WorkforceMillennials are the largest generation currently employed in the US, with Gen X next, and Baby Boomers’ numbers at third and dwindling. Estimates have put the number of Millennials at well over 50 million, 40-50% by some totals of the workforce. According to Forbes, predictions place this generation at nearly 75% of workers in the US by 2025. Worldwide, their numbers are slightly lower but still dominant. Almost half of them work in business and professional services, while a third are in the financial industry, according to a 2018 Paychex survey. This bodes well for attracting employees to your credit union. 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

Takaya said the organisers would continue “carefully monitoring” the pandemic’s evolution and “make every effort in coordination with all relevant organisations to ensure a safe and secure Games”. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Tokyo 2020 should be held next year “at any cost” given athletes’ efforts to be ready, Japan’s Olympic minister said Tuesday, a day after the IOC’s John Coates told AFP that the postponed Games would go ahead in 2021 “with or without Covid”. “For the Games next year, athletes are continuing to work hard in the environments they find themselves in. So I feel we have to hold it at any cost,” Seiko Hashimoto said when asked about International Olympic Committee vice-president Coates’s remarks. “I think Mr Coates felt reassured that the Tokyo Games can be held with further close coordination of efforts,” she added. Coates on Monday told AFP in an exclusive interview that he was confident the delayed Games would open as planned next year, vowing they will be the “Games that conquered Covid”. “It will take place with or without Covid. The Games will start on July 23 next year,” said Coates, who heads the IOC’s Coordination Commission for the Tokyo Games. “The Games were going to be, their theme, the Reconstruction Games after the devastation of the tsunami,” he said, referring to the catastrophic 2011 earthquake and tsunami in northeastern Japan. “Now very much these will be the Games that conquered Covid, the light at the end of the tunnel.” A spokesman for the Tokyo 2020 organisers declined to comment directly on whether they agreed with Coates’s confident assessment. But Masa Takaya said the remarks showed “that the IOC team is fully committed to delivering the Games next year”. In a landmark decision, the 2020 Olympics were postponed because of the coronavirus, and they are now set to open on July 23, 2021. But Japan’s borders are still largely closed to foreign visitors and a vaccine is months or even years away, feeding speculation about whether the Games are feasible at all. Officials have made clear that another delay would not be possible, and there are signs that public enthusiasm in Japan is waning. A poll this summer found just one in four Japanese want them to go ahead next year, with most backing either another postponement or a cancellation.
