OSI Industries is one of the leading food production companies in the United States and still one of the ones with a great controlling stake in the global food production business. OSI is a company that has developed from nothing into something. It has been in business for the past century since it began operations in 1912 as a butcher shop. Over the decades, it has remained resilient and has continued to conquer one level after the other. Today, it is seen as the trendsetter in the food production business. With an estimated value of $6 billion, it is clearly one of the best performing businesses in the country. In 2016, it was ranked as number 58 in the list of the most successful private businesses in the United States.

Acquisitions

One of the expansion strategies that have been applied by OSI Industries in its expansion operations is acquisitions. They have been acquiring existing businesses in different parts of the world. The company has also been entering into business agreements with farms, warehouses, and food processing plants. As a company that is working hard to become the premier food supplier in the world, there is definitely a lot more that is expected from them. This is not a company that can afford to make weak business deals because it is aiming for the top position. OSI Industries today has facilities in different parts of the world such as India, China, Australia, and others. The company is aggressively pushing for chicken, pork and beef products- although they also produce other products.

Doubling chicken production

Recently. OSI Industries started a plan that would see its production capacity for chicken products rise by double. In Spain, OSI operates a production facility in Toledo. The facility is responsible for the supply of OSI’s products to Spain and Portugal. Due to his demand for chicken products in this region, OSI industries has decided to double the production of chicken products from 12,000 tons to 24,000 tons annually. The total production from this facility will go higher now to reach 45,000 tons since the facility is also being used to produce beef and pork products.

There are a lot of factors that affect the performance of the company’s employees. Some of these factors are the pay, the working condition, the working environment, and more. However, one of the most common thing that affects employee performance is a job or a corporate burnout. Even if an employee loves his or her job very much, there are times when work can become stressful. James River Capital’s Paul Saunders reveals the sign of work exhaustion and things that can be done in order to reverse the effect of corporate burnout.

1. The employee started losing control

There might be a lot of different types of job in the market right now, but almost all require an employee to become in control of his or her time. When an employee is losing control of the scheduling and time management ability, it is a sign that the employee is suffering from corporate burnout. One such example of this is when he or she started to miss the deadlines or started arriving at work late.

What Paul Saunders gave as advice is to let the employees have their time management back by encouraging them to take a break. An example of this is 10 to 15 minutes of free time in order for them to regain their sense of control by making an outline of goals that they need to accomplish for the day.

2. The employee feels that there’s a lack of transparency

A lack of transparency sometimes happens when the employee’s communication with the employer or the upper members are not good. They believe that their upper management is not giving them enough priorities to grow their careers. This is especially true when a person who is hired more recently got a promotion or praise. Because of this, the employee feels negative and is more likely to experience corporate burnout.

One way to reverse this, according to Paul Saunders, is to make sure that the upper management should be more open to communicating their decisions to people under the corporate hierarchy. If a more recently hired personnel gots the promotion instead of the one who has been in the company for years, the upper management needs to tell the employee the reason behind the decision. Supervisors and Managers are encouraged to give each employee a way to give their opinions to avoid getting discouraged and corporate burnout.

3. There is a shift in attitude and loss of confidence

When an employee is stressed, they can become more irritable and extremely easy to anger. Their mood is always negative and lacks motivation. They also start to feel less confident in their outputs and will question if their contribution to the company is good.

Paul Saunders advised that offering support to the employee and suggesting a new hobby where he or she can unwind the pent up stress at work is a good idea. In gaining the confidence back, setting small and achievable goals is a good way to help employees regain their performance and confidence. Learn more: https://paulsaundersjrcc.wordpress.com/

Stream Energy is so committed to its charity work that it has set up its own philanthropic section called Stream Cares. The company has been involved with its charitable work for over twelve years, but it now officially has a part of the company devoted solely to its philanthropy.

It felt a duty to give back to its own community. Stream Energy has been highly successful selling energy to its affiliates, and it is using that revenue to help with a variety of causes.

In the past it has worked with international charities like the Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity, but its latest partnership is with a fellow Dallas-based charity called Hope Supply Co. Both organizations will focus on the issue of homelessness around the Dallas area. The problem has only become worse over the last few years, and it has an enormous effect on children. Hope Supply Co already supplies food, clothing, and school supplies to local children, and Stream Cares has recently organized a series of events for the victims of homelessness.

Stream Cares took a group of children to a local water park. It was a treat for the children. Many of them had never been on a trip like it. It was also a chance for the employees of Stream Energy to show their support for the children and the community as a whole. While it is important for companies like Stream Energy to donate money, it is also important for the company to donate its time. It is something the employees are more than happy to do.
