However, the good news for smaller businesses like Oratory Commerce in Liverpool, is that ‘sickies’ are much more common in larger companies.
It’s often the punch line of a joke told at the local pub after a few pints and naive as it may seem, a lot of people do not see that what they are doing is actually a scam. And for business owners, those in authority are left with little options to prevent paid sick leave for employees who are more than well. The recently introduced ‘fit note’, which ensures that GPs, employers and staff focus on what an employee can do, not what they can’t, was mostly welcomed. The initiative, which replaced sick notes in April, was praised by 76% of those polled as ‘likely to get people back to work sooner’ rather than having to accept bogus sick days as the right of an employee.
Unfortunately, it’s not only the directors of companies that are being scammed but also those honest hard working members of staff. The workers that are left to pick up the extra work load are those that are affected the worst by this scam.
The statistics for those who are self employed are very different however, with the self employed apparently being a lot healthier! In Liverpool, the absence rate due to sickness is no doubt the same as across the rest of the nation, but here at Oratory Commerce, where we contract out work to 25+ self employed representatives, spirits are high and so are attendance records!

Today's morning meeting was hosted by Oratory Commerce Assistant Owner Andrew Fair clough. Andy who will be opening up an office in Ireland next month, spoke about how easy it is to achieve the daily target goals set during the morning meetings for the events. He explained a very simple structure relating to how a Field Representative should carry himself or herself during his or her presentation in events.
Capture customer's attention with a question ie."Hi, do you shop here often?"
Answer questions and end the answer with a question - this enables you to take control
Ice breakers / Hooklines
Tone of voice - have confidence within yourself
Hands - help paint a picture
These simple steps help achieve the daily goals that are set. Knowing that you are in control allows you to have great consistent sales daily.
