In a recent article published by Salon Perfection, the topic discussed was the advancement of the quality of life of women by their entrance into the workplace where that work place offered them the versatility to continue their roles as wives and mothers,
QNET is a direct-selling business which does offer women this type of opportunity. QNET states that 74 percent of their workforce is composed of women and catering to the needs of their workforce is a priority for QNET .
QNET has taken the additional step to employ a sports star and celebrity to be a figurehead and good will ambassador for the company. They selected Martina Hingis, grand slam tennis champion from the international world of tennis. Hingis was a dominant force for women’s tennis for over a decade, she was a gracious winner and both players and fans enjoyed her as a star on the tennis circuit and as a person. Tennis is a sport enjoyed and watched around the world and QNET, likewise, has a business presence around the world.
The business world is changing rapidly. Flex-time is a new catch phrase to go along with maternity leave and child care provisions to attract women who are interested in becoming a part of this new and more flexible business structure. The proliferation of cell-phones, computers and websites has changed the day-to-day operation of businesses, and now with the move toward electronic ordering for goods and serves, the face-to-face business operating profile has been changed forever.
QNET employees and other direct sellers are, actually, at odds with the new wave of eCommerce and electronic merchandising. Technology has removed the personal touch from many business transactions today. Actually, it was not a large leap in going from personally shopping at warehouse discount stores (Walmart) to staying at home and ordering from the same store by using that store’s on-line facilities.
As businesses move away from the brick and mortar super-store concept. There will be a vacuum created, that vacuum might be filled, again, by “Mom and Pop” type operations and direct sellers as an alternative to eCommerce.
