On Monday night, I had been in Worthing visiting a detailed friend of mine. For supper, we visited an Italian restaurant that overlooks the beach and has a huge decked area out the front, so we were able to eat al fresco whilst enjoying the sea view. The waiter was apologetic but I informed him never to worry incredibly; I could just order a new card.
However, he wasn’t content with this and used the torch on his ‘mobile phone to peer through the decking. There is my credit card, about six in. Below the decking. This served only to verify to me that the cards were irretrievably lost. Our motivated waiter did not agree, however, and disappeared for a minute or two before returning with two long knives and some blu-tack.
And, after three or four minutes’ effort – along with a little muttered cursing – the waiter handed me back my credit card. I’m sure you’ll agree that this son had shown great conscientiousness here: I’d informed him it didn’t matter but he got the responsibility for the situation and made every effort to return my card to me, successfully as it turned out. I’m letting you know this to illustrate my argument that any business is as good as its staff.
Your restaurant might serve amazing food but a surly waiting around staff will drive away your customers. Your product might be amazing but if your warehouse staff are careless with it or don’t see purchases out of the door on time, then social people will stop buying from you and go somewhere else. I’m sure you can think of several, many examples for yourself. The bottom line is that your personnel are the essential element of your business.

And since this is a matter of good sense, really, I had been very surprised to get Cumbria Chamber of Commerce’s response to the budget. Sure, I expected it to be business focused, but I also expected a little more insight into the fact that it is the employees that make businesses successful.
Below, I’ve taken sections of their response to comment on but you will get the entire response in the bottom of this post. There’s a non-sequitur here or at the very least an assumption that people who are unemployed have to be coerced into working. Removing people’s benefits does not magically present them with careers that these are experienced or in a position to do.
