Business Micros: "Whether that is changing a report in EvoNET or rationalising the customer defaults in Evolution, they make it clear that their priority is to fit the software to our business rather than the other way around" Mark Owens CMS Window Systems

Pikington: The video looks at how glass can be used to provide thermal insulation "Glass is arguably the material that defines the look of modern commercial architecture more than any other. Its unique ability to flood interiors with light and deliver stunning views for occupants while also protecting them from the elements has seen its use by architects grow rapidly in recent decades." Michael Metcalfe, national commercial sales manager

Exlabesa UK: "This was a great project to work on and we’re delighted with the quality of the result." commented: Diane Ince, managing director of Wadds.

Edgetech: "The Maersk Tower is an outstanding example of how the smallest of components - in this case, warm-edge spacer - can have such a huge impact on a building's overall performance. Together with the stunning glass provided by Berlin-based Glasbiegerei Doring, Super Spacer has helped the building achieve U-values as low as 0.5 W/m2k." comments Head of Marketing Charlotte Mercer.

Titon: "Kenrick has been successfully producing multi-point door locks and window hardware for many years to build up a sizeable customer base," said Sales and Marketing Director, Tyson Anderson. "As an established brand ourselves, we are delighted to have gone into partnership with such a well-respected business boasting a long heritage."

Hegla: "Bringing new products to market in the fastest time possible and before your competitors is a challenge that many of our customers want to take. As a company we understand that there is an urgency in the market to lead and that automation is sure to increase efficiency in future years ahead." continues Steve Goble.

Hiring for Emotional Intelligence: The Missing Link

"hire for attitude"

"The cost of a bad hire… The impact of a bad employee on a team's morale… People don't leave jobs, they leave bad bosses…." All terms feared in the workplace. There are thousands of articles published on this research and millions of pounds invested in an industry of applications, platforms, and assessments designed to help companiesavoid that bad hire.

Why? Because hiring the right people really matters.

We are always striving to achieve high retention rates with the recruitment we carry out for clients and use sophisticated behavioural psychometrics as part of that process, still we want to get even better results and have researched heavily "The missing link" Hiring for emotional intelligence.…»

Letter to the Editor - security and guarantees

Dear Ian

We hear a lot about crime in the media, and it's that awareness of crime that drives perceptions and magnifies our fear. So homeowners feel vulnerable when they hear that some police forces have stopped investigating burglaries because they say they don't have the time or budget to investigate them, and the chances of bringing someone to book are very low.

Homeowners also puzzle over conflicting reports about crime. Depending on the source of statistics, the type of crime, how it's recorded, and who is recording it, crime may be going down or going up! It's confusing, and your risk of being a crime statistic also depends on where you are and who you are.…»

Yours sincerely

Simon Monks
Managing Director, VBH (GB)


Letter to the Editor - coloured profile in the heat

Dear Ian

According to the Met Office, since 2002 we've had nine of the 10 hottest years in the last 100. Climate change scientists say this summer's heatwave could soon be the norm.

We're sweltering! But, how are your foiled and colour windows, doors and conservatories? Some say, not so well. There's been more of the usual crop of problems from people cutting corners and ignoring systems companies' (Syscos) prudent recommendations.

Some cut corners and risk it. But when the weather warms they get problems. As the US billionaire Warren Buffet says, it's only when the tide goes out do you discover who's been swimming naked.…»

Sincerely

Rob McGlennon
Managing Director Deceuninck UK & Ireland
