test

A test drive is a crucial aspect of buying a car. If you have a friend or family member with you, you can ask them to jot down your observations while you drive. That way, if you are test driving several different cars, you can distinguish between them when doing a final assessment. Tips from Thompson Automotive.

How the ride feels

Make note of the ease of steering. If the steering feels too heavy, it may become bothersome if you do a lot of city driving. Similarly, some people find that steering that is too light makes it difficult to properly control the car. Also, check for the smoothness of the ride. Try driving over railroad tracks or bumpier road to get the best idea of how the car handles. Continue reading →

4 Creative Ways To Improve Your Employees Productivity

cry1Gone are the days where all offices are the same – now, more than ever, companies are branching out and being creative when it comes to their office spaces, their technology, and how they are going about making their employees happy and productive. Here are four creative ways to improve your employees productivity levels every single day:

 

A Flexible Environment

One of the best ways that you can improve your employees productivity is by giving them a flexible environment: an environment that works best for their individual needs. Everyone is different and everyone works better in their own unique ways. For example, Joe could work better in complete silence, with no distractions, while Fred works better in a team-like environment with quite a bit of communication going on around him. A flexible environment should aim to suit the needs of all of your employees. Create common work spaces, small quiet offices, and remote capabilities. Also, giving your employees certain work “perks” such as standing desks, treadmill desks, and other different options to get their work done while also releasing energy, or creating more satisfaction, the happier they will be and that turns into boosted productivity levels.
