That was the lowest reported gain from ADP since July.The ADP estimate, done in conjunction with Moody’s Analytics, has varied widely from the government’s official nonfarm payrolls report, particularly during the pandemic. However, the upwardly revised 753,000 in September actually was higher than the Labor Department’s count of 661,000, whereas previous months’ reports were considerably lower than the government’s.- Advertisement – “The labor market continues to add jobs, yet at a slower pace,” Ahu Yildirmaz, vice president and co-head of the ADP Research Institute, said in a statement. “Although the pace is slower, we’ve seen employment gains across all industries and sizes.”The report comes two days before the more closely watched Labor Department tally.Economists expect that report to show growth of 530,000, which would take the total amount of positions brought back since May to nearly 12 million. The unemployment rate is expected to fall two-tenths of a percentage point to 7.7%.However, the gains only make up for a little more than half the 22 million positions lost in the first two months of the pandemic.Economists worry that job creation could slow amid a rise in Covid-19 cases, which increased by 86,507 on Tuesday to bring the pandemic total to 9.3 million, according to the Covid Tracking Project. More than 224,000 Americans have died from the virus and its complications.center_img From a sector perspective, services accounted for almost all the job creation, with 348,000. The hospitality industry, which took the biggest hit during the virus-related shutdown, added 125,000 jobs, while education and health services grew by 79,000 and professional and business services contributed 60,000.Of the 17,000 increase on the goods-producing side, construction and manufacturing each added 7,000 while natural resources and mining rose 3,000.Job creation was split among businesses in terms of size, with companies employing 50 to 499 employees leading with 135,000. Large businesses contributed 116,000 and small firms picked up 114,000.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

Sisak-Moslavina County Tourist Board presented its tourist uniforms

first_imgPhoto: 2sisters With the aim of promoting the tourist offer at fairs, special presentations, TZSMŽ has published a public call for the design and production of unique tourist uniforms. The local company Natura Ivana jdoo from Sisak, which made two men’s and five women’s uniforms, applied for the tender. All embroidery on the uniforms is newly made and handmade, modeled on the folk costumes of our region, says Ivana Tomašinec Damjanović from the company from the company Natura Ivana jdoo, which is run by the sister Sanja Tomašević brand 2sisters. “Motifs from our region, from Posavina, Moslavina and Banovina, were used. It is about manual and unique work. Handmade on blouses, stitching on white canvas, was done by Marica Šalić from Gornja Posavina, and the executed rose, which is represented as a symbol of the county, was done by Mrs. Kata Šešerin. We wanted to complete the whole through the presentation of the symbols of the whole county, so in addition to roses, blue and green are represented, the colors of the county. We also wanted to empower our women who preserve and nurture our heritage and ultimately show our culture and heritage. ” says Ivana Tomašinec Damjanović The Sisak-Moslavina County Tourist Board presented its unique tourist uniforms. A great example of how small tourist boards can work well, be different and fight for their place under the sun. It is easiest to say that the status quo cannot be adhered to. In this context, I would like to remind you of the excellent action of the Rogoznica Tourist Board (although a sea destination, with a much larger budget than continental tourist boards, but again “small” in the context of large sea destinations) Visitor center or a mobile tourist office. Sanja Tomašinec, designer and engineer of textile technology, who is also responsible for the entire design, points out that this was a unique opportunity to implement a rose on the official uniform as a symbol of the county, which is otherwise less used. “Everything was done according to our traditional clothes that were worn before, and the goal was to process the entire area of ​​the county through one set of clothes. So we got modern uniforms with traditional elements. ” concludes Sanja Tomašinec. The uniforms will have their premiere at the Place2go Fair in Zagreb on March 15-17 this year, and they will also be present at all performances of the SMŽ Tourist Board – at fairs in Slovenia, Germany, Italy and Warsaw. TZSMŽ financed the project in the amount of HRK 30.000,00 gross for the design and manufacture of 7 sets of uniforms.center_img Now the next step would be to design a different promotional stand, to round out the whole process. I keep emphasizing that at trade shows, especially if you are “small” in the context of a smaller budget, you have to be innovative, creative and different in order to draw attention to yourself. If we look at a fair space, it is always the same, with classic white “boxes”, and if someone jumps out with a different approach, it immediately stands out from the others and thus attracts attention and arouses interest. Of course, the first step is to attract attention and interest, and then quality communication and sales come on the scene, ie the promotion of the destination in order to create action, ie the desire to come to the destination. Photo: 2sisters The Sisak-Moslavina County Tourist Board is delighted with the design of the uniforms, especially since it is about domestic production and handicrafts. “There was a need for unique uniforms because this year we are working on increased promotion of our destination abroad (Poland, Italy, Slovenia and Germany), so for practical reasons, to attract attention, we came up with the idea to attract attention with something pleasing to the eye. In the whole story, just different uniforms come to the fore. We still have a lot of ideas, and our next step is to make a different promotional stand. The worst solution is classic spaces with a white background and posters, but in line with the modest income, I hope that we will be able to make a design of a different promotional counter. By the way, last year we broke the magic number of 100.000 overnight stays, which we are very proud of. “Concludes Ingrid Padjen Đurić, director of the Sisak-Moslavina County Tourist Board. Of course, the first step is to attract attention and interest, and then quality communication and sales come on the scene, ie the promotion of the destination in order to create action, ie the desire to come to the destination. The uniforms are visually attractive and differentiate the presentation from other destinationslast_img read more
