Cleaning Spray Available At Tesco Can Be Used At Any Angle

A new invention is to be introduced by TESCO under its household spray cleaner category. These sprays can be used at whichever angle you desire to make sure every last bit of liquid is squeezed out for use.

The supermarket giant recognizes that it is one of the most frustrating things for people working household chores – not being able to use all the cleaning fluid as the bottle is almost finished. Many are not happy with the fact that they can’t use every last drops since they paid for it.

A typical trigger spray bottle consists of only one hole located at the end of the tube. For the spray to work, the hole must be immersed in cleaning fluid.

The new spray coming from Tesco is called Anyway Spray and uses a special material where in there are millions of tiny holes thus users can spray up to the last drops.

The cleaning fluid must by touching at least a part of the tube in order for the spray to work. The bottle can be used in any angle to make sure every last drop is utilized.

The British invention is considered to be ground breaking but the catch is that it can only be bought exclusively at Tesco outlets and will only be utilized for trigger spray cleaning brands under the Tesco label. According to the retailer, customers will be able to save a lot when it comes to household waste because of the new product.

The cleaning products which will utilize the new trigger spray bottle will be products used for carpet cleaning, hob cleaning, leather cleaning, stainless steel cleaning as well as marble cleaning and all they have to pay is £2 for each bottle.

Once the design is launched in Tesco stores all over UK, it is estimated that there will be about 27,899 litres saved every year from the usual wasted cleaning fluid.

The inventor of the Anyway Spray is Michael Pritchard who is based in Essex. It is not a surprise if it becomes a hit since cleaning products are considered commodity and used by household owners as well as companies such as those in carpet cleaning in Perth.

Entrepreneurship: Survey Says No

For those looking to enter the field of entrepreneurship in Australia, maybe start a marquee hire in Sydney business? Global Entrepreneurship Monitor may have some bad news for you.

According to a survey recently held by the GEM, a global entrepreneurship consortium, found that Australia did not find entrepreneurship as a viable industry to set up a career around, ranking a fairlow low 46th on the global list on GEM’s survey, which was aimed to measuring the perception of the world towards the field as a career choice. The GEM survey is part of its over 18 years of tracking entrepreneurship, both participation and reception throughout the globe. The survey does have its limitations, as with all studies.

Out of the survey’s Australian sample respondent population, only 54 considered starting their own business as a good career choice, which is low when compared to countries such as the Netherlands (78%), Canada (66%), and the US (64%). This means that the country lags behind in its perceptions regarding entrepreneurship.

Since the attitude of the community can determine a lot for entrepreneurs, with reception from the community encouraging or discouraging potential entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurship is a culture-based field, reliant on things such as role models, examples, community acceptance and the like in order to fully function and thrive. One of Australia’s leading researchers in the field, La Trobe Business School’s Professor Alex Maritz even stated such outright. The professor also pointed out that entrepreneurship could be a viable asset for the country, but in order for that to be realized, the country must embrace the field in their culture. Even if such embrace are just small yet meaningful means and acts of support towards entrepreneurship.

In either case, the noted main problem is that the country doesn’t particularly have high regard for local entrepreneurs. This isn’t a very good sign, seeing as entrepreneurship is heavily influenced by the attitudes, outlook and ambition of entrepreneurs, both current and those that have yet to come. In order for a marquee hire in Sydney business to seem like a good venture, entrepreneurial ventures much like it should appear as profitable and worthwhile.

Former Executive Keeps Money From A “Handshake” Agreement

Any professional seeks to retire or leave their company on the best terms possible. From a commercial cleaner in Gold Coast, to the Perth executive, everyone wants to ensure that if they are forced to leave or decide to do so, they’re assured for the future.

As is the case with former Spotless executive Anthony Stevens, who decided to take up the matter of his termination pay with the High Court. And won.

The former cleaning company exec will be able to legally retain an entitlement, amounting to $477,400, awarded to him as part of a semi-formal agreement marked by a handshake after a legal battle against his former employer. The cleaning company failed in its rebuttal against Mr. Stevens’ entitlement, resulting in the High Court deciding that the former executive is due his termination payment.

The Victorian Court of Appeal awarded Mr. Stevens $477,400 plus interest when it evaluated his case. Spotless made appeals to try and counter this decision, but was refused.

Mr. Stevens, former chief information officer for Spotless before he was fired, had managed to argue in the Victorian Court of Appeal that he was due to receive the entitlement pay that Spotless owed him based on an agreement solidified via a handshake sometime in the August of 2012. The entitlement pay amounted to  a year’s pay. Originally set to be paid in shares, it was paid in cash after a protracted legal battle.

In August 2012, Pacific Equity Partners, a private equity firm, took control of the company, resulting in a change of management. According to Mr. Stevens, the new management assured him, verbally, that if he were to become redundant, he would be paid cash as his termination benefits, not shares. He produced evidence of the verbal agreement that also stated that a written agreement would be created as documentation of the arrangement.

The Court had learned that a letter for Mr. Stevens was prepared, with the proper authorization from Spotless, but was never sent. However, other former executives received their respective letters and retention bonus. The new managers denied the verbal agreement, but evidence in cross-examination proved that the verbal agreement was made. Spotless has then attempted to recover part of the cost by compensating for it through Mr. Stevens’ other benefits.

This legal issue started because of management changes. This case can occur to any part of a company, such as a commercial cleaner in Gold Coast, or an accountant.
