Benevolent Capitalism 4 Day Class by Gary Douglas, Steven & Chutisa Bowman, Dr Dain Heer in Venice, Italy

Houston, USA, May-26-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — Business innovator, Gary Douglas warns, “You cannot afford to ignore the demand for benevolent business.”

International speaker and vocal advocate of Benevolent Capitalism, Mr. Douglas is concerned that many individuals and businesses are stuck in an outdated idea of capitalism, and are failing to adapt their practices to better meet the new consumer mindset:

• 96% of consumers believe it is important for companies to have good social and environmental policies. (Digital Reason)
• 33% of all consumers actively seek out and purchase goods because of responsible corporate practices. (Unilever)
• According to the Unilever CCO, “This research confirms that sustainability isn’t a nice-to-have for businesses. In fact, it has become an imperative.”

Mr. Douglas is teaming up with some of the world’s leading Benevolent Capitalism experts to bring the concept to business leaders and other individuals around the world, through a series of public and live-streamed seminars.

“Capitalism has been relegated to ‘where’s my share of the pie?’ and ‘how I can get what I need when I need it’. This is a very destructive way of manipulating capitalism”, Douglas explains. “Consumers have noticed, and are becoming more particular in their spending choices, as a result.”

“I hear a lot of people say ‘Can capitalism really be benevolent?’ but this is because of the limited points of view business has been operating from recently”, Douglas says. “When capitalism was first created back in the 1700’s, it was supposed to serve the masses; to create more for all of us. In fact, capitalism is really about how to create more money and more possibility in our life.”

“When we return to that viewpoint of more possibility and choice, it becomes a different narrative”, he adds. “Now is the time for all of us to recognize the power of capitalism and how it can be a catalyst for positive change and different possibilities.”

Contractorcoaching.com: Construction Jobs Outpaces Workers Availability

After years of trimming jobs in the wake of the Great Recession, contractors and subcontractors say the pendulum has swung the other way, and now they are looking to hire skilled workers who are no longer available in the job market.

“I said this two years ago, if we have a full-speed recovery in the construction industry, we will not have the available workers to fill the jobs,” said Henry Goudreau, CEO & Founder of HG & Associates, Inc., and http://www.contractorcoaching.com. “The only way to correct this is by a grassroots effort by contractors in offering training, or convincing high school candidates to take construction training courses. It is in our best interest to start working on this now rather than later.”

To make up the shortfall, builders are training workers themselves, recruiting from outside the area and working with local technical schools on a slate of new training programs expected to begin in the fall.

Goudreau offers a report for contractors on how to increase sales and drive more money to their bottom-line. It is free for contractors by going to http://tinyurl.com/me78v37.
Henry Goudreau is known as the most sought-after business-building coach, speaker, and author for contractors. He is famous for turning around the problem plagued construction business, building profits, freeing up the owner’s time, and streamlining processes that build success, brand, and loyalty.

HirePurpose Educates Employers Why Hiring Veterans Means Smart Business

On January 22nd, HirePurpose and the Wounded Warrior Project are co-hosting a special event, The Military Talent Pool: Hiring, Managing, & Retaining Another Great Generation to help local and national companies improve military hiring practices. The event will be held from 5-7pm at the New York Athletic Club on 180 Central Park South.

Last year, unemployment among Iraq and Afghanistan veterans trailed the national average by almost 4 percentage points. Though many companies recognize the benefits of hiring veterans, few have the expertise and knowledge needed to attract, evaluate, and retain members of this extraordinary talent pool.

“This is a great opportunity to introduce New York City employers to a variety of methods to hiring veterans,” says Zach Iscol, Founder and CEO of HirePurpose. “Employers can learn why hiring these exceptional young men and women can be incredibly beneficial to their businesses and we are very excited to have partnered with Four Block and the Wounded Warrior Project.”

More than 80 companies, including Wal-mart, Goldman Sachs, Viacom, Delta, Etsy, Securitas, The Ladders, and others from a wide range of industries will be in attendance to learn best practices from leading experts in the veteran employment space. Employers will also hear from a group of recent military veterans and college graduates about the challenges they’ve faced and the types of industries they are interested in.

“Wounded Warriors come to the table with an extraordinary set of soft skills that employers crave,” says Lisa Stern, Economic Empowerment Executive Vice President at the Wounded Warrior Project. “Veterans are loyal, work well independently and as part of a team, are creative, and are mission-focused.”

Linda Cawley, a specialist of the Warriors to Work program for the Wounded Warrior Project, and Mike Abrams, Co-Founder of Four Block Diversity Leadership, a service that provides student veterans with professional development and connects them with internship opportunities at corporations, will lead a panel discussion titled, Hiring, Managing, and Retaining Veterans.

A second panel, Veterans Speak: Employment Challenges Facing Veterans, will be lead by Bryan Adams of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Aubrey Arcangel of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Joshua Ray of Operation Iraqi Freedom-Indonesia Tsunami Relief, and Katie Dexter of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
