What's SUGOROKU

I have been a HR consultant for 10 years. I helped a lot of companies to design Performance Appraisal system. Performance Appraisal system usually has goal setting system.
I always recommend my clients to check your goals or your subordinate's goal monthly basis, or at least quarterly basis. But for clients, the performance appraisal system is too formal to use at the daily meeting.

So.....I invented monthly check chart for the client.
The chart has 12 columns as circle and you can put your annual goal and quarterly goals inside the 12 columns. The chart looks like old Japanese game "SUGOROKU". Then I named it "SUGOROKU".

You can check your monthly achievement by the SUGOROKU.

SUGOROKU supports you to check your monthly goal.

Now I am supporting some clients to use the SUGOROKU.
It's coaching session.

Some presidents of my clients is very happy to use SUGOROKU and actually they can achieve their goals on the SUGOROKU sheet.

SUGOROKU sheet has some power to make you achieve the goals.
Because the origin of power from 12 columns will gather into the inside columns.
Inside columns have their goals.

I feel the power makes you achieve the goals.

For this year, every clients which use the SUGOROKU, achieve beyond the goals.
It's amazing!

If you are intereseted in SUGOROKU, please feel free to contact me.

Now I am helping some clients in LA. If you live in LA, please come to my office and enjoy SUGOROKU system. But if you are out of LA, let's have a skype session with me!

More Companies Kept Healthcare Costs Down in 2009
Forty-one percent of respondents reported spending up to $5,000 per employee on health care in 2009, with 47% reporting costs in the $5,000-10,000 range, and 12% reporting costs of per employee of over $10,000 per year, according to a recent survey of healthcare practices by BLR.
In BLR’s 2008Survey of Employee Benefits, only 35% of respondents reported holding healthcare costs below the $5,000 per year threshold.

Nearly three-quarters (72%) of responding companies reported taking at least one action to reduce healthcare costs in the prior year. Of those, over half reported raising employees’ portion of healthcare premiums.

Each of the following measures were undertaken by at least one in four of respondents who took action to reduce costs: raising employees’ copayments and deductibles, offering health savings accounts (HSAs) and/or health reimbursement accounts (HRAs), and implementing wellness programs.

The survey, conducted by BLR’s HR Daily Advisor in December 2009, received nearly 1,400 responses, of which 80% originated from companies with fewer than 500 employees. The responses were evenly divided geographically within the United States.
