'Safer cleaner healthier' cleans up at 2020 Britain's Most Admired Company Awards

This year’s study acknowledges British success in super quick transformational leadership and resilient team work to pivot and deliver success.”

— Sandra Macleod, Group CEO, Echo Research

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, January 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — 'Safer cleaner healthier' cleans up at 2020 Britain's Most Admired Company Awards
Halma most admired; Tesco most rated for COVID response

Safety equipment company Halma plc – whose moto is safer, cleaner, healthier – is crowned as Britain’s Most Admired Company in 2020.

In the country’s longest-running corporate reputation survey of its kind, published by Management Today, 300 FTSE directors and financial analysts shared their views of Britain’s leading organisations and how they were seen to be managing and/or resetting in this past year.

Where corporate reputations were seen to do well, and better than others, praise was given for speed, agility, adaptability and ‘maintaining a human touch, putting people first’.

Also asked to rate the most admired company for its response to the pandemic, Tesco took top marks for ‘doing everything they can to serve customers during a difficult time and keep colleagues safe’.

Said Sandra Macleod, CEO of Echo Research the reputation research agency behind the study: “This was the year of the online providers, of the healthcare specialists, and of all those keeping customers and supplies going. This year’s study acknowledges British success in super quick transformational leadership and resilient team work to pivot and deliver success.”

The pandemic upended many things, but not some fundamentals. There was no change in the top three reputation drivers seen as most important among professional stakeholders: the quality of the goods and services, quality of management and financial soundness. Just behind these and more important than before are innovation and inspirational leadership to see organisations through both the health crisis and Brexit.

Of all 254 companies analysed across 26 sectors, the oil & gas sector marked the greatest reputational decline, followed by the hard-hit automotive and hospitality sectors.

Britain's Most Admired Companies study is the longest-running annual survey of corporate reputation in the UK with data going back 30 years. Find out more at britainsmostadmired.com

BeVeg Brings Unprecedented Credibility to the Vegan Restaurant Certification Program with a New Executive

BeVeg Brings Unprecedented Credibility to the Vegan Restaurant Certification Program with a New Executive

I would like to see a legitimate reduction in the use of ‘may contain’ disclaimers, and an improvement in hygiene standards. This can be done through vegan claim integrity training on our standards.”

— Heather Landex, BeVeg Chief Compliance Officer and Allergen Auditor

FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — BeVeg International certifies vegan products and services — including restaurants. The benefit of the BeVeg vegan restaurant certification is that it ensures controls are in place to reduce and eliminate risks for cross-contamination with animal materials. The BeVeg vegan restaurant program is an ISO accredited vegan standard that requires global vegan awareness training for restaurant owners and staff, posted policies, and documented protocols to prevent cross-contamination. 

“Manufacturers and restaurants take kosher claims, gluten-free, and allergen claims seriously, and it’s about time they treat vegan claims with the same level of care. We don’t want animal residue on our products and we are entitled to the same industry respect with respect to vegan claims,” says Carissa Kranz, attorney founder and CEO of BeVeg International, the world’s leading vegan certification firm. 

The BeVeg International vegan restaurant standard and training program was drafted in concert with industry experts like Heather Landex, a passionate vegan, and perhaps the only vegan food safety restaurant auditor and consultant in the world. Heather is a food safety expert and seasoned allergen auditor, trainer, and consultant for food service businesses. Since the year 2000, Heather has worked in eight countries, and in more than 1000 food service businesses, advising and consulting with large food safety and safety compliance companies, The Olympic Games, and some of the largest restaurant chains and Michelin star restaurants in the world. Heather travels extensively for work across countries in her efforts to help restaurants and hotels keep food safety claims, allergen claims, and vegan claims legal and up to code.

“I would like to see a legitimate reduction in the use of ‘may contain’ disclaimers, and an improvement in hygiene standards. This can be done through vegan claim integrity training on our standards. I wish to motivate the food service industry to produce cleaner, healthier options, and train them,” says Landex.

Her book ‘Inclusive: The New Exclusive: How the Food Service Industry Can Stop Leaving Money on the Table’ explains why food safety is important for a vegan food service business, what a vegan food service provider needs to take into account in regards to safety, and at what stages of the business, why vegan and plant-based food businesses are leaving money on the table by excluding customers with certain dietary requirements, what’s involved in ensuring your vegan café, restaurant or catering business can cater for other minority groups such as gluten-free, celiac or those with other allergies, the costs involved in both food safety and making your business more inclusive, what street food vendors need to be aware of when it comes to food safety, and how to keep the business and hospitality sector successful and protected from litigation. Her purpose and first-of-its-kind approach align succinctly with BeVeg vegan restaurant and business certification.

Landex was recently appointed to serve on the BeVeg executive team as Chief Compliance Officer for the Restaurant and Hospitality sector. The BeVeg vegan trademark is considered the world's leading vegan standard and vegan symbol.

Jefferson Award Medal

Jefferson Award Medal

For those of you who may be wondering if one person can make a difference, look no further than the Jefferson Awards.”

— David Rawlings

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Over three years ago, Larry Apke and Dave Rawlings, friends since childhood, founded The Job Hackers, a nonprofit dedicated to helping the unemployed, providing a free training program that would normally cost thousands of dollars per person. Since then, they have provided over $2 million of free training. Through their experience, they are helping the unemployed find work and bring diversity to the tech world. For their efforts they were given a Silver Medal from the Jefferson Awards in a virtual ceremony on January 27 and are now in the running for a national award.

In his acceptance speech, David Rawlings, Head of Operations, stated “For those of you who may be wondering if one person can make a difference, look no further than the Jefferson Awards. Each week KPIX profiles someone who is making a difference in the world. Everyone of these individuals is deserving of this award which is why we are even more humbled to be chosen.”

For his part, Larry Apke, Chief Agile Officer, emphasized the Job Hackers community, “While we might be the faces that the public sees, the Job Hackers is a thriving community of over 2000 individuals – volunteers, partners and participants. We accept this award on their behalf.”

The core offering of the Job Hackers is a class commonly referred to as “the Agile MBA”, a course that teaches students Agile and Scrum. It also prepares students to pass the Professional Scrum Master (PSM I) Certification exam. According to LinkedIn, Scrum Masters are well paid and it is one of the fastest-growing professions.

Scrum Masters lead Scrum Teams for the delivery of projects ranging from software development to marketing. Apke volunteers his time to teach the course by Zoom and it has received raved reviews for being insightful, helpful and well put together.

The course normally costs up to $2,000 but is available free of charge to anyone around the world. In lieu of payment, students are asked to give back to their community by volunteering their time.

“We estimate that we’ve given away about $2 million in free training to more than 750 students and added thousands of hours of volunteer time,” said Apke.

Graduates also have access to job listings, resume review services, networking to with a Slack community of nearly 2,000 people and other resources that support a job search.

“Even during the pandemic, about 40 percent of our graduates find a job within 90 days,” said The Job Hackers explained Mr. Apke. “Many find management jobs, with some earning a six-figure income. Registration is open to everyone around the world and there’s no prerequisite.”

The average age of their students is 43, roughly half are minorities, and 60 percent are women, many returning to work after taking care of parents or children. One of the reasons there are a lot of women is because they partner with many women’s groups.

The Job Hackers can also help companies become more competitive by offering the same training in a two-day program. The unique curriculum covers Agile, Scrum, Quality, Product Design and Flow, Systems Thinking, Employee Motivation and more.

The Job Hackers mission is to help candidates find employment. It does this by providing valuable knowledge about Agile and Scrum to prepare them for real-world jobs and working with them and employers to ensure the proper placement of participants.

Nobody at The Job Hackers gets paid. Their mission is accomplished with a corps of volunteers and on a shoestring budget of about $10,000 per year. You can support The Job Hackers cause by making a donation, becoming a partner or shopping at its online store.

“If you need a job, no matter where you are, sign-up for our course. It costs you nothing and it could be the best decision of your life,” said Apke.

OnoLiv Screenshot

MUMBAI, INDIA, January 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — OnoLiv. is pleased to announce it is changing the way mobile device users access live chat support with its single live chat app.

Typically, when a mobile user attempts to use the live chat feature from the website on their browser, they experience crashing or freezing of their browsers, leading to much frustration and inability to access help when they need it most.

“In addition to these browser issues, many online businesses and websites are tricking their visitors by employing different channels for marketing and supporting customers,” says Rathod. “As such, customers are left in long lineups if they are simply seeking service support and not looking to spend extra money. With OnoLiv, however, we’ve created a new channel of communication which supports precious visitors and converts them to paying customers, too.”

OnoLiv’s unique, innovative, and newly patented technology ensures efficient service and seamless communication between businesses and consumers. The app primarily focuses on enhancing customer support within one single app when compared to multiple web-based live chat services frequently found on websites. With OnoLiv, both businesses and consumers will experience a host of useful benefits, including:

● Single mobile app for users to chat with available agents on any website

● In the event of click or tap on “OnoLiv” button in currently visited one or more websites, users can automatically view the names of all current websites in their OnoLiv app and can select any website and connect with associated agent

● Unobtrusive, standardized interface with saved logs to enable access to past conversations

● Accessible from multiple devices, including mobile, desktop, smartphone and tablet

● Chat with multiple online businesses at once

● Ability to chat with agents based on the website’s menu options

● With just one tap, users can share selective user information with live chat agents

● Frequently updated interface which can utilize local storage, GPS, cameras, and different types of media

● And so much more!

The Driveway auto shop owners will sell contemporary essentials fashion through DRVWY brand.

SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, February 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Driveway auto shop owners will sell contemporary essentials fashion through DRVWY brand

Jan. 28, 2021 SAN JOSE, Calif. — The four young Asian-American entrepreneurs who founded The Driveway Auto Repair Shop have always been obsessed with cars.

Childhood friends Michael Ly, Willie Chac, and Kevin Dang grew up living and breathing all things auto. CEO Dang spent countless hours playing racing games as a child. When he was 9, his father's untimely death from lung cancer led him to escape even more into his love of cars and racing.

The trio connected in junior high when they discovered a shared passion for cars and started tinkering with vehicles on their own driveways. Eventually, they grew to a team of four when they added friend and fellow car fanatic Eranthe Mitome.

The four friends established The Driveway in 2018 to build a different kind of aesthetic and performance auto repair shop with a focus on bringing a unique experience to their clients. Their minority-owned independent shop in San Jose sets itself apart by including a progressive lounging space allowing clients to relax and focus on their own work as they wait for their car service to be completed. Though they service all makes and models, they specialize primarily in Tesla and Porsche vehicles.

Now, the team is taking their unique auto brand a step further by launching a track-themed line of streetwear DRVWY. Mitome said adding a line of apparel and gear bridging the gap between car culture and streetwear was a no brainer.

"Our life is pretty much on raceways," she said, "so it only made sense to start creating our own lifestyle brand that encompasses the thrill, adrenaline, and confidence that we feel when we're on the track."

DRVWY includes a collection of basic essential apparel and other merchandise made for the drive, with subtle and monochromatic elements.

"We purposefully avoided loud and flashy designs because our consumers want to be confident, comfortable and stylish in our basic essentials," Mitome said. "DRVWY is a multifunctional lifestyle brand and it's an extension of us."

How exciting it is to have a bona fide suite by one of the masters of surrealism, Salvador Dali. It was also interesting to see new world technology and experts try to solve an old art mystery.”

— Tarek Eljabaly

WEST PALM BEACH, FL, UNITED STATES, January 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Auction Life’s upcoming Whimsical Worldly Wonders Winter Auction slated for Wednesday, February 17th, is loaded with 367 lots of fresh-to-the-market Florida finds, to include vintage and antique jewelry, art, porcelain, antiques, collectibles, art glass, artifacts, sculptures, perfumes, crystal and more. The sale will begin at 4 pm Eastern time.

The auction is mostly online, but with limited live seating available in the gallery (an RSVP is required). An exhibition period is to be announced, and gallery previews will be by appointment only, with strict COVID-19 protocols in place. Internet bidding will be via LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com and Auctionzip.com. Telephone and absentee (or left) bids will also be accepted.

An expected headliner lot is a rare suite of ten original mixed media impressions by Salvador Dali (1904-1989), titled Imaginations and Objects of the Future (est. $12,500-$22,500). The set is a limited edition (#60 of 250), printed on Arches paper in 1975-1976, and each work is hand-signed and numbered in pencil by Dali. The suite has been in a box, untouched, since the 1970s.

Included in the lot is a unique custom wooden Dali case with hard-to-find Dali stand. Everything is original and all sheets are loose as issued. The first one measures 30 ½ inches by 22 inches. A few titles are Liquid and Gaseous Television, Breathing Pneumatic Armchair, Cybernatic Lobster Telephone, Intra-Uterine Paradesiac Locomotion and Liquid Tornado Bathtub.

“How exciting it is to have a bona fide suite by one of the masters of surrealism, Salvador Dali,” said Tarek Eljabaly, owner of Auction Life. “It was also interesting to see new world technology and experts try to solve an old art mystery.” He was referring to another artwork in the auction, a figural landscape oil painting attributed to Joos de Momper the Younger (Flemish, 1564-1635).

The work was previously ascribed to the Dutch landscape painter Jan Van Goyen (1596-1656), but recent inspection and research by I.F.A.R. in New York City concluded the painting's style, materials and composition were consistent with a Dutch or Flemish landscape executed in the first quarter of the 17th century, and that it bore a greater affinity with the works of Joos de Momper. “Our consignor recalled that her late mother, Holocaust survivor Edith Alexander, was told the same thing some years before when she submitted the painting to Christie’s,” Tarek said.

After a month-long search, the consignor was able to find a letter from Ian Kennedy, Senior Vice President of Old Master Paintings at Christie’s, dated December 19th, 1985, in which he was seeking to include the painting in their April 1985 sale. “Concerned that someone was trying to cheat her out of her ‘Van Goyen’, Mrs. Alexander chose to decline the invitation,” Tarek said.

In 2010, Mrs. Alexander sought professional services to sell her artwork collection and was visited at her Queens, New York home by one of the Keno brothers and a friend from Sotheby’s. “Her daughter is unsure as to which Keno brother, but recalls that he had allergies and requested that no perfumes be worn the day of his visit, a tough feat for Mrs. Alexander,” Tarek remarked.

While the two were not interested in the majority of her artwork (which was later sold at Hudson Valley Auctioneers), they were very interested in featuring this piece (but not as a Van Goyen). Unfortunately, even their $30,000 estimate would not shake Mrs. Alexander of the feeling that someone might be trying to get her for her “Van Goyen” and she declined that invitation as well.
Finally, Mrs. Alexander contacted Auction Life, prior to her passing in 2016, wishing to feature her remaining collection (including the “Van Goyen”, as it was inscribed). With the recent research and discoveries, the family felt an obligation to feature it to the world once again. The painting, nicely contained in a 20 inch by 29 inch frame, has an estimate of $25,000-$35,000.
Tops in the jewelry category is a gold wide cuff bracelet by the French designers Jean Mahie, made in the team’s usual, heavy solid 22kt gold abstract figures design. The bracelet is signed and hallmarked, and comes in a Neiman Marcus button suede pouch. It was made in 1982 and is titled Dentelle de Milled (French slang for “a banknote of 1000 francs”). (est. $8,000-$16,000).

Watches sure to please include a Corum 18kt gold 10 gram .999 ingot faced wind-up watch, with a diamond on the crown and a black leather band, complete with a burlap leather case, box, book and original paperwork (est. $1,500-$3,000); and an extremely rare vintage men’s Hamilton “Piping Rock” watch with all-original black enamel bezel, dial, movement and hands, housed in the original 14kt solid gold case and having a 979 movement and 17 jewels (est. $1,000-$3,000).

A 149-piece Reed & Barton sterling silver flatware service for 12 in the classic “Spanish Baroque” pattern, with extras, is expected to fetch $3,000-$6,000. Also, a Bernhard Rohne for Mastercraft wooden dining table detailed in acid-etched brass, 84 inches long by 47 inches wide, with the original purchase receipt from 1978 (The Interior Shop, N.Y.) and originally paired with the Karges Chinoiserie lacquer chairs that are also in the auction, should finish at $1,000-$3,000.

An 18th or 19th century Russian oil on canvas religious painting of God in the sky amongst parted clouds, overlooking five religious figures below, each with an inscription in Cyrillic, 31 ½ inches by 38 inches (sight, less frame), has a pre-sale estimate of $1,200-$2,400; while a 19th century French Napoleon III tantalus or cave a liqueur (either way, a decanter set), in an ebonized wood oxbow cabinet containing four decanters and sixteen glasses, should top out at $1,000-$2,000.

Public Spend Forum and Amazon Web Services Collaborate To Bring Technology Showcases to the Public Sector

Public Spend Forum x AWS Technology Showcase

Public Spend Forum and AWS are collaborating to bring cutting edge technology companies across a variety of domains to the government market through showcases.

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, January 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Public Spend Forum and Amazon Web Services (AWS) are collaborating to bring cutting edge technology companies across a variety of domains to the government market through showcases.

These “Learn the Market” events are free to attend and feature companies from specialized sectors, government use cases of that technology, as well as tech demonstrations, panels and collaborative problem solving.

Public Spend Forum’s (PSF) mission to open government markets means lowering barriers of companies in emerging markets to enter the public sector and collaborate with government buyers across federal, state and local agencies. The Washington, D.C.-based firm’s expertise in market intelligence uniquely enables it to provide resources and tools to agencies across the government that foster deeper understanding of technical areas for government buyers to better understand the landscape, leading to superior procurement outcomes.

Previous Technology Showcases in 2020 have featured Space tech and AR/VR. The first of these events in 2021 will be taking place on February 11th 2021 on Safety Technology. This event will highlight technology for public safety and use cases in government that are being leveraged by federal, state and local agencies. It will feature:

-Presentations from 6 companies at the forefront of safety technology for first responders and front line workers.
-Insights from government leaders on how they are paving the way in this sector
-Expertise from ResponderXLabs and SafeTech on government use cases of these technologies

The Public Spend Forum x AWS Technology Showcases are FREE to attend and open to the public. You can register to attend at: https://www.publicspendforum.net/events/psfxaws-technology-showcase-public-safety/

February 11, 12-2:45pm EST
