...Day three would be more hands on, we would have the store manager come in, welcome them again, and then get them pepped about the company. Example would be Wal-Mart and Lowe’s where they have a company cheer. Where they spell out the name loudly and excitedly, that really gets the new employee’s excited to be working for the company! Then send the new employee to the floor to shadow a current employee in what they are doing. Day one- Company Policy overview open to page one and each person read aloud a paragraph at a time. This is break up the monotony of one person reading, and gives each person a chance to feel more comfortable in the room with their new co workers. This is a somewhat boring way to read through the company policy handbook, but this ensures that each person has read or had this read to them. After that portion is completed we would move onto procedures. This is very important for each employee new and old to know what the company procedures are. When working in the retail area, it is at the utmost importance to follow proper procedures. We cannot let the customers think that we play favorites, and let some of them get away with something’s that others cannot. Example would be our personal check policy; it is a requirement that we have a driver’s license in order to accept a personal check or holding product is another one, we can only hold product if they have put down some money on it (similar to lay a way) otherwise we are not able to hold that......

Marketing Plan Emt

...that East midland trains market themselves with a label quality service attached. 7 P’s The marketing mix is a business tool used in determining a product or brands offer. East Midland Trains would fall under providing a service therefore, 7 P’s would be devised instead of the tradition 4 P’s which would relate to a product. Product- The staff are at the forefront of the brand – the average staff member at EMT is within the ‘higher’ age group and there is a higher male population. Price- East midland trains believe that the fluctuation in their pricing can be justified as they are driven by demand similar to those of airlines. These price changes can be seen daily as there is a variance in price at peak times and off peak times. Place- East Midland Train service can be reached at stations, via the internet and advanced technology also makes the service available on smart phone apps. Promotion- Used the same campaign for 7 years – now goes unnoticed by the public (EMT don’t want to invest in a new campaign if they won’t see any return on what they put in) EMT have to ‘speak to people’ at stations and have twitter sessions as part of their franchise agreement. They are outsourcing some market research in 2014 to better their service – including a mystery shopping programme and questionnaire sent via email. People- East Midland Trains, like other railway companies, have not previously or currently provide their staff with customer service training. The company......

Emt Research Paper

...KSU 1101 13 November 2012 EMT Research Paper EMTs are such an essential part of society nowadays. In my opinion, this is one of the most important jobs out there.

Events like this take place every single day, and when these events happen, it is up to EMTs to save our lives. An EMT, or Emergency Medical Technician, is “a person who is trained to give emergency medical care at the scene of an accident or in an ambulance (EMT).” These are the people who respond to 911 emergency calls. Once on the scene of an emergency, the EMTs evaluate the condition that the patient is in.

In the situation that someone needs to be rushed to a hospital, an EMT will restrain the......
