BusinessVibes determines Key Stages in Managing a Project or Event

London, UK, February 05, 2012 -- No matter what kind of event you organize, whether it is industry event or charity one, there are some usual things you need to remember to make it successful. Find below some useful guidelines you might follow.

First of all: identify your resources. You need to know how many people you will have to help you organize the whole event and how much many can you spend on it. Another important resource is time you have to deal with everything. Allocate the resources in the way to complete preparation on time and on budget. Check for any additional resources available for you, they may help you act faster and more efficient.

Define exactly what should be done in order to achieve your objective. It will help you organize your job and make sure you don't leave anything and have enough time for all the things you need to do.

Take a look on the list and prioritize your tasks. Define the ones that are dependent on others. Find the most important one and start with them, clarify implications between tasks and put them in correct order.

While choosing location of your event make sure it is accessible to your target group. For international industry event, try to choose country well accessible for foreign visitors. For small events on your university, check availability of some lecture halls. Stay focused on your targeted audience while choosing the place.

Try to link your events to something that is happening around and anyway. If you want to create charity event, try to link it with Christmas to make “Christmas Charity” out of it. Agriculture fairs may be connected with harvest. Don't limit yourself to official holidays. Use your imagination to attract attention. You can focus on some sport events, Pancake Day or whatever is applicable to your event.

Do not forget to advertise your event. Think about the kind of advertisement that will be the best for your targeted group. Consider leaflets, posters, ads in specialized magazines. Be aware of power of the Internet. Go public on social media platforms; try to find participants or sponsors on dedicated networking websites like BusinessVibes. Make sure you include in your adverts all relevant information about the event like title, location, time, organizer and contact. Be creative, catch attention.

When you are done with the planning and objectives refer to them when the project is in progress. Monitoring progress will help you to spot, identify and eliminate problems that surely will appear on your way to success.

Pacific Crest Group Recruiting Services Offer End-to-End Staffing Support for Bay Area SMBs

Placement Services Customized to Meet the Unique Needs and Budgets of Companies That Normally Do Their Own Hiring.

LARKSPUR, Calif. (February 5, 2012) -- Pacific Crest Group (PCG,, the Bay Area accounting and human resources service firm, has launched a new corporate placement service structured for Bay Area businesses. The new recruiting service offers end-to-end staff management support, helping businesses assess their personnel needs, identify traits that suit the company culture, develop accurate job descriptions and competitive compensation packages, and find the right employees.

The new recruiting offering is part of PCG’s outsourced services, designed to help clients focus on their core operations rather than back office distractions. To free business owners from having to deal with expensive staffing problems, Pacific Crest Group offers workforce planning help, organizational structure evaluation, job description development, and compensation analysis as part of its recruiting process. It also includes a cultural evaluation strategy that identifies the personality traits needed to succeed at the company, and what values and traits are required to be a top performer. And, of course, PCG will conduct methodical candidate searches and evaluations. The hourly billing structure makes PCG’s recruiting services ideal for smaller businesses, since the work can be scaled to clients’ specific needs for a fraction of what it would cost to retain a corporate recruiter.

Our HR and accounting services put us in the unique position to get to intimately know our clients and their cultures, which makes our recruiting services better focused as well as more cost-effective,” said Gail Merz, Director of Business Consulting for Pacific Crest Group. “Staffing has to be considered in light of larger business objectives, and our recruiting service is designed to function as an extension of our client’s strategy. We can assist with staff pre-planning, assessing cultural fit, developing the right job description, and taking charge of as much or as little of the recruiting process as the client requires. We save companies a lot of money and free senior managers’ time for more important tasks.”

As part of its service, PCG employs the most advanced recruiting and evaluation techniques. PCG works with Accolo, a state-of-the-market, cloud-based recruiting and candidate management platform. PCG also uses tools such as DISC® personality assessments to assess an individual’s communication style, motivators and cultural fit.

Accolo has built a highly predictive recruiting process that uses collective intelligence to assure successful hires, and we use crowd sourcing techniques to expand our market reach to attract more qualified job seekers. And our prescreening and scoring tools help narrow the field for a more perfect match,” said John Younger, CEO of Accolo. “As a result, we can support companies like Pacific Crest Group so they can deliver the most qualified candidates to their clients.”

We consider PCG a key part in helping us build our staff,” said John Campbell, M.D., CEO of MarinEyes, a medical practice with offices in San Rafael and Novato, California. “Four of our key employees were hired with PCG’s assistance. Not only was PCG instrumental in finding the right candidates, but they helped us improve job delineation and create a culture of accountability. Every new hire adds to the quality of our staff, and we now have higher productivity and better employee retention than ever before.”
