Give Thanks for the Past Year and Look Ahead to the New Year
on December, 30 2014

Happy New Year

It is customary to give thanks for all the blessings that we have received for the past year and look forward with renewed hope for another bountiful and rewarding new year.

In just a few winks 2014 will be over and the new year will be descending upon us. The year has been a roller coaster ride, with exhilarating business twists and turns that kept us on our toes. But with each twist and turn were learnings to be stored fore future reference, problems that were surmounted, new directions that were discovered and new bonds that have been formed. We have acquired many clients that trusted our language services and they have remained loyal. We have proven time and again that we are one of the best in the business, responding to the language services needs of companies and individuals, with expertise and professionalism.

As the year ends, we look back at what happened in the past year with thanks and gratitude and we look forward to the coming year with great anticipation and eagerness. Business and industry experts usually come out with forecasts for the coming year, based on the current trends and their projections. Rather than be surprised, let us take a look at what lies ahead, so we can be prepared.

General business projections

Social media integration will still be a major part of business in 2015. Streamlining the distribution of relevant content is needed. Content should be customer-focused, informative and captivating. For B2B marketers, industry experts say that one of the top social media sites to use is LinkedIn. Facebook and Twitter will also be playing a major role in business marketing, with the sites adding more tools to help companies and consumers. A "buy" button will be added to these sites that will allow consumers to avail of services without leaving the social media pages.

More millennials (Generation Y) will be holding mid-level and senior positions in 2015 and they would be great influencers to fellow millennials. Although some of them may have been pushed into the positions vacated by senior staff, now is the time to properly equip them for the position by providing them with the right training and instill in them the company's objectives, mission, vision, and short-term and long-term goals.

Transparency is one of the things that the younger generation wishes for. Company leaders not only need to be an educator and an inspiration, they should earn the trust of their employees by being honest. As a leader, you should be open about your company's future direction and what it is currently doing. Being a leader means that you should be able to provide regular honest and objective feedback.

Although the skills gap will still continue to widen, your employees could benefit from pinpointed training to keep them abreast of current business trends and enhance their productivity by tapping and honing the skills they are good at.

Hold on to superior senior workers because they have knowledge that could be transferred to younger workers. At the same time, be ready to plan for company succession. Allowing knowledgeable and able staff to handle the day-to-day business activities gives you as the leader more time to focus on new business development and plan your business growth.

Let us all plan for another great year this 2015 and give thanks for the prosperity that had been bestowed upon all of us in 2014. As we prepare to pop the champagne and party the night away to usher is the New Year, let us give our friends and business colleagues around the world a robust "Happy New Year!" greeting in their own language.
