What a hoax that is and it should be outlawed, all that does is create FOMO. Prior to May 2017 every contract had a  1% defect limit. Now it can be either a number or a percentage. It's best to keep it as low as possible and try to go for 1% or no greater than $10,000.  When there is say a 5% defect limit on a $500,000 house. That’s a $25000  and it can become more difficult to get out of the contract if the defects are greater than the $25000 when it's high as you'll need to get quotes from trades and at the moment it's hard to get any trade to look at repairs because of how busy the construction industry is in Tasmania. https://www.hobartbuildinginspection.com.au Launch A Successful Google Ads Campaign For Your Small Business 2021-05-18T06:31:07Z launch-a-successful-google-ads-campaign-for-your-small-business Running a successful Google Ads campaign requires constant monitoring and optimisation.

It reduces refiners’ costs and environmental footprint by providing low-temperature crystallization-based solutions for the separation of water and salts or heat-sensitive materials. Compared to alternative separations technologies, this provides customers with a more energy-efficient path.  When combining an EFC unit with Comprimo’s desulphurization technologies, this process eliminates gaseous and liquid sulphur emissions from the scrubber effluent and provides clean, reusable water. In addition to treating this highly contaminated effluent to recover water, the process also produces sellable salt, which can be used as a raw material for fertilizer industries.  “Our partnership with COOL Separations means we can assist our customers to not only meet their emissions targets and reduce their capital and operational costs, but also to encourage the reuse of water in industrial processes. This brings us one step closer to delivering a more sustainable world,” said Frank Scheel, Senior Vice President, Comprimo.  We are pleased that EFC technology from COOL Separations combined with Comprimo’s sulphur recovery processes can offer refiners even more from a water recovery and emissions perspective. This collaboration also endorses the viability of the EFC process under the rigorous environment of oil refiners,” said Rob van der Meij, Chief Executive Officer, COOL Separations. COOL SEPARATIONS brings the Eutectic Freeze Crystallization (EFC), Freeze Concentration (FC) and Cooling Crystallization (CC) processes to the market as ENERGY EFFICIENT methods to concentrate aqueous process streams and produce clean water (ice) and pure salt.  PROXA is a water treatment company that offers a range of water management services that cover the entire water cycle from consulting and design, research and development, engineering and construction, and plant modernisation to operational management, maintenance, repairs, after-market service, chemicals, consumables and spares.

These baby brands often ask us: Where do Mums go to shop for baby goods? How satisfied are Mums with their retail shopping experience? What can brands and retailers do together to motivate Mums to shop more often? All fantastic questions. Mumpower reached out to our vast network of Aussie Mum Shoppers to clarify the unknowns for brands in this space. Check out the following insights to learn more about Mums buying behaviour for baby goods (excluding FMCG), and prepare to boost your in store presence and retail partnerships. The top 10 type of Baby Stores (ex FMCG) Mums are buying from: In order of priority, these are the retailers Mums are buying baby goods from: In store – pharmacy (i.e Chemist Warehouse, independent pharmacies) In store – department store (i.e. Big W, Target, Myer, David Jones, Kmart, etc) In store – Baby Bunting Online – department store (i.e. Big W, Target, Myer, David Jones, Kmart, etc) Online – Baby Bunting Online – pharmacy (i.e Chemist Warehouse, independent pharmacies) Online – direct from the brand Other online shopping stores (i.e Amazon, Ebay, Kogan, etc) In store – Other stores (not listed) specialising in baby/childrens products Online – Other stores (not listed) specialising in baby/childrens products What does this mean to brands? It is important for brands to stock ranges in both online and offline retailers. In-store retail destinations continue to be a popular destination for Mums. It provides the opportunity to touch, feel, try products and compare items in person. Top 3 retailers offering the best shopping experience Baby Bunting Department stores (i.e. Big W, Target, Myer, David Jones, Kmart, etc) Pharmacies (i.e Chemist Warehouse, independent pharmacies) What does this mean to brands? The better the shopping experience, the greater the likelihood mums will return or recommend to others. There is opportunity for both brands and retailers to review the entire buying experience and brand touch points and review what role can your brand play in improving her in store shopping experience. 8 ways retailers and brands elevate Mums buying experience, as told by Mums: Competitive pricing Excellent brand ranging Product availability Be Convenient Enhanced in store shopping experience Enhanced online shopping experience Superior customer service Knowledgeable staff What does this mean to brands? This is what Mums are seeking from her buying experience.  Some of the ways brands can demonstrate how they deliver across these factors is by: clearly communicate the value or added value of the offering (via communication strategy, reviews, website presence, branding, signage), use intuitive technology online to personalise her experience and promote other ‘like’ products or brands that suit, improve staff training and ensure the in store experience is easy – and enjoyable- to navigate. 6 strategies to attract more Mums in store As part of this Mumpower research initiative, Mums were encouraged to nominate and rate activities that would motivate her to shop more often. The most popular responses, in order of demand include: Educational experiences Demo days with brands VIP special event In store local mums group catch ups Expert speakers Meet and greet with influencers What does this mean to brands? Mums are hungry for information and very eager to engage with brands on site. Mum shoppers need to feel confident in her buying decision and will actively seek this information.  Therefore, this is an opportunity for brands to review the value-add in store experiences your brand can drive in unison with the retailers, i.e. hosting educational experiences such as child safety sessions, baby bonding ideas, breastfeeding support and more, will enable the customer to learn something of direct interest to her needs, interact with others and experience first hand how a brand will fit into her life. Understanding where Mums choose to shop is one part of Mums buying journey . Beyond this, there are many other insights that will continue to support brand growth. Such as: understanding the competitive landscape, assessing how Mums perceive your brand, and what advertising mediums have the greatest influence on her decision to buy. Here is an example of how further Market Research will boost your success exponentially.  Brands that gain insight into her total buying experience are best placed to drive growth further. -end- GRC Solutions launches new Workplace Behaviours eLearning course. 2021-05-17T23:37:34Z grc-solutions-launches-new-workplace-behaviours-elearning-course All employers have an overarching duty of care to avoid exposing their employees to unreasonable and foreseeable risks of injury. As highlighted by recent cases in the media, this duty of care extends to the prevention of harm from sexual harassment, bullying and discrimination. Employers should have regular compliance reporting to ensure employees remain adequately trained and have access to a clear policy setting out how and to whom complaints are addressed. A recent report from the Human Rights Commission found that one in three people experienced sexual harassment at work in the past five years. Respect@Work The Report highlights several negative effects of workplace sexual harassment: ·         staff turnover; ·         negative workplace culture; ·         resource expenditure to deal with sexual harassment; and ·         damages associated with claims brought against a business for sexual harassment. Employees also have a duty under occupational health and safety laws to take reasonable care for the health and safety of their colleagues. Training should ensure that staff are empowered to act in support of their colleagues and know how to report issues they become aware of. GRC Solutions is proud to launch our ground-breaking new course, which aims not only to help you to prevent and address misconduct in the workplace but also to celebrate and support diversity and inclusion.   As UNESCO’s World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development approaches on 21 May, there has never been a better time for everyone to train on the standards of conduct and behaviours that safeguard us all. Backed by powerful case studies, scenarios, and a fresh visual design, it delivers practical tips on how to prevent and address bullying, discrimination, and sexual harassment in the workplace, whether in the office, at home, or off site. For the first time, we ask learners to imagine a higher standard of conduct than just avoiding breaches. A new module on diversity and inclusion covers concepts such as accessibility, cultural competence, and unconscious bias, and shows how we can make our workplaces safe, respectful, and inspiring places for all. •             Module 1: Workplace bullying •             Module 2: Discrimination and sexual harassment •             Module 3: (Advanced) Bullying, discrimination, and sexual harassment •             Module 4: (Advanced) Managing incidents •             Module 5: Diversity and inclusion The content may be taken a combined course or delivered as a series of micro-learning modules scheduled over a number of weeks. The Workplace Behaviour course can be customised to fit your organisation needs.  The course can be deployed via the organisation’s own Learning Management System (LMS) or via the GRC Solutions Salt® Compliance LMS.

Instead of taking days or weeks to understand security, compliance and onramps, Bamboo has packaged up a product to make investment effortless.  With built in compliance, reporting and storage Bamboo allows anyone with a mobile phone and bank account to participate in just a few minutes. “Until now, purchasing digital currency has been overwhelming, time consuming and complicated,” said CEO Blake Cassidy. “Bamboo responds to these issues and provides a quick, easy and safe way for people to gain exposure to Bitcoin, Ethereum, Gold and Silver. It is so simple, anybody can do it,” he continued.  Australians are at the forefront of adoption with over 20% of the population owning digital currency. More and more people are looking to invest for the long-term and it’s expected these currencies will be as widely owned as stocks and commodities such as gold over the coming decade.  ATO reported a total of AU$168M funds allocated to digital currency investment in their December statistics release. This data means that the average fund allocation per person is around AU$7,500. Google Pay and Samsung Pay will soon let customers pay with Bitcoin and other digital currencies. BitPay, a digital ledger payment processor, revealed it is planning to bring Google Pay and Samsung Pay support early in 2021.  Visa has recently announced late in March 2021 it will allow the use of cryptocurrency to settle transactions.  “Digital currencies are becoming widely accepted across the globe and being able to invest in these currencies to increase performance in your self-managed superannuation diversifies your portfolio even further.  We see this as an important part of the early stages of Bamboo’s growth.
