Dear Mr. Jamieson:

“I can’t get anything done at the office; I’m going home to work.” When employees utter that sentiment, it’s time for a change. Last year, 18.3 million people ran their businesses from home, a 23 percent increase over the previous year. The IRS reports one in three businesses registered in the last two years has been home-based. The typical home worker is a 41-year-old male college graduate, married with children, making $40,000 annually.

More than 200 major corporations in the U.S. now have pilot projects allowing their employees to work at home at least part of the day or week.

Myron Jones, director of Human Resources at Fountain Corporation, has just completed a study among these 200 corporations on productivity increases. Myron will be available for interviews the week of August 5 and would be willing to share with your readers some other fascinating survey results such as:

• The “mommy track” idea misses the mark.
• Large companies fear small businesses.
• Husbands and wives can blend business and family under the same roof.

Myron’s studies have taken him into corporate offices around the world, where he has met with heads of major corporations to get their feedback on such at-home arrangements. He also has been published widely in trade journals in the human resource field.

If you’d be interested in interviewing Myron about supervising work-at-home employees and the productivity increases associated with this phenomenon, please call Margaret Hayden (315)378-9873.

Sincerely,

Dear Mr. Jensen:

Restructuring a company isn’t an easy task—sometimes you are so close to the situation it is almost impossible to tell where the most effective changes would take place. That’s why I would like to suggest that you contact Kendall Craig.

Kendall is a consultant specializing in restructuring recommendations. Her credentials are impressive, to say the least. She graduated from Harvard with honors, and has established for herself an enviable reputation in her field. Because of her work with Schuster’s last year, they managed to stay afloat, and have even shown a gain this year for the first time in several years.

Mr. Jensen, I really feel that Kendall could help you streamline your company quickly and more efficiently. She can be reached at Crisis Consultation, Inc. I think you will be impressed by what you hear.

Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Sincerely,

Dear Ms. Van Dyke:

I empathize with your employee training problems, having had a similar dilemma myself recently. I solved my problem by hiring Rod Sterling as our company’s personnel trainer; and you would not believe the difference he made. Not only were there startling improvements in employee morale, but there were definite net gains as well. Unfortunately, Rod has relocated.

But my misfortune is your golden opportunity, because Rod has moved to your town. I happen to know he is available. If you are interested in his unique training approach, I would suggest you call him at 554-4858.

I hope you will consider letting Rod work for your company. I know you will be pleased with the results.

Yours Truly,

Dear Sue:

I understand you have reached the end-of-year-fiscal-report brain-lock, having read the same words so many times that you are no longer sure how they sound, if words are spelled right, or what a punctuation mark is. However, I just may have the solution for you.

My friend Sharon works at Editors Inc. and not only has 10 years experience with the company, but worked 15 years prior to that as an editor at Random House—in their Corporate & Business Books section. If her experience doesn’t speak for itself, let me add that she worked with me on my company’s end-of-year report last year and I ended up receiving an award as a direct result of her extremely perceptive advice.

I would strongly urge you to call Sharon at work (545-FIXX) and arrange an interview with her. For the amount of work she does, her fee is quite reasonable.

I hope you give Sharon a chance. I know you will be ecstatic with the results (and, more importantly, so will your boss, your CEO, the Board of Directors and the stockholders!) Let me know what you decide!

Regards,

Dear Jake:

I know your cleaning company has been doing a poor job, but do you realize that they could be causing an employee health hazard as well?

Studies show that a growing number of people are having problems with dust allergies. That increase in dust and dust mites in that section of the office could be the reason you are experiencing an increased amount of employee absenteeism, as well as why so many people in that division are complaining of “summer colds.”

Tedrow Cleaning Staff cleans our offices, and I highly recommend them. Since Mahkalia Tedrow and her staff have started cleaning for us, the office has been absolutely spotless. The pride they take in their work and the thoroughness of the job they do has been noticed and appreciated by everyone from the receptionist to the CEO, and, more to the point, by our clients.

Should you like the chance to interview Mahkalia Tedrow, her number is 853-7439.

Cordially,

  1. I have been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the web will be much more useful than ever before.
