The question is do we want a team of low paid Interns or do we want a staff of highly paid employees that are profit centers for our company and our clients.
Their is a new generation of students that have grownup in the era of cost cutting and they are taught in school that employees are cost centers. That is one of the greatest misconceptions in business. Employees are NOT cost centers they are centers of profit.
For example, I keep hearing : ” It is better to have non-employee or contract workers so that we do not have to pay employee benefits.” The reality is that as a percentage of wages paid, our cost of insurance per employee is down 35% compared to what is was in 1980. yes premiums have gone up from an average of $280.00 per month per employee to over $2,000.00 per month in 2018. But our top salaries in 1980 was $600.00 per week and today our average minimum salary for an employee with five years experience is $6,000.00 per week. No one complains about the higher salaries or the increase in profits per employee. Yes our employees need to be treated as Profit Centers. How do we ensure that our employees are profit centers?
We create a platform that ensures success. We go back to our roots in financial services and use an Agency Model from the insurance industry. We take that model and combine it modern technology such as Affiliate Marketing combined with Multi-level Marketing. We create mandatory certifications from companies like Microsoft in CRM for Sales, Supply Chain Commerce and Advertising from Bing all with additional certifications so that our Interns can be successful employees Fashion Buyers Network or with our clients. Yes old school works.
We know from the insurance industry the large of large numbers and that unfortunately five to twenty percent of the people produce over 80% of the revenue for a large company. Now the question is do you get rid of the poor producers or do you create a system where even the weak can survive? The surprising truth is that it is more cost effective to support the weak than to be constantly turning over staff and training new people. Plus by supporting the weak, they become loyal, plus they do not leave because they know they are weak. So yes we will train and hire Marketing Majors who are afraid to talk to people. Who are some of the other surprising majors that have succeeded with our system?
Accountants, Economic, Finance, Law, Marketing and even Nursing Students have used our platform for networking purposes for gaining employment. How? For example, even thought they are totally different. Accountants and Nurses both represent our platform to people in their industries. Accounting Majors target Accounting Firms and Nurses target small doctors offices and many end up becoming pharmaceutical sales reps while they are completing their degree in nursing. Those individuals who learn to combine modern ways of communication with modern ways of marketing and sales are people who become profit centers for companies. Yes, they are hirable by us, our clients, our connections. I recommend you join the Internship to Hired program or fill out the contact form to request more information.
