But that doesn’t mean your financial institution can’t take some of these lessons and use them to inform how your staff interacts with customers on a daily basis! Here’s some amazing stats that your front-line staff should consider when interacting with new account leads each day.1. Email Opens and Deletes…Did you know… only 24% of sales emails are opened? Most of us are aware that people get a lot of junk mail, it happens to us all at times. But the fact that only a quarter of sales emails are even opened should tell your staff if that if they are reaching out to a sales lead via email it’s likely they will need to send 3-4 of these email messages to ensure that at least one of them gets opened.

first_imgIf you thought Amnesty International Aotearoa NZ were about human rights, you’d be totally wrong. You just need to read their submission supporting the decriminalisation of abortion.They start by saying“Our vision is for every person to enjoy all the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights standards.”Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 3, says that “Everyone has the right to life…“, and the Convention on the Rights of the Child 1989, Preamble, says “the child, by reason of his physical and mental immaturity, needs special safeguards and care, including appropriate legal protection, before as well as after birth“…Good start – but what follows is completely the opposite message from this so-called human rights group…“We recognise that legal protection of human rights, including the right to life, commences at birth.”(Might as well scrap all those prenatal guidelines about mothers not drinking or smoking or singing to their unborn child or eating healthy etc)“We believe [Model A] will best ensure that access to safe abortions is effectively available to pregnant people (!!) to make their own decisions, free from barriers, delays or restrictions that could violate their human rights, including their reproductive autonomy.”Model A is abortion any time, for any reason, up to birth.“Criminalisation of abortion in any circumstances and denial of access to safe abortion services is a manifestation, cause and consequence of social systems that discriminate, deny personal and bodily autonomy and impose unequal burdens on the basis of individuals’ reproductive capacities and their pregnancy status, among other related factors.”Too bad about the ‘personal and bodily autonomy’ of unborn children, ‘discrimination’ against them, or ‘denial of access’ to life!And just to show how ‘woke’ Amnesty International is –“AIANZ therefore recommends that the Bill be clarified further and that it is made explicit that services should be available also to transgender people and people of other gender identities capable of becoming pregnant.”Um, if they can become pregnant, they’re a ‘woman’. We checked. It’s still a biological truth.Interestingly, the only highlight of their submission is their advocacy for the disabled community…“We affirm that the only way of supporting all prospective parents to make informed decisions about continuing or terminating their pregnancies is through affirmative measures, such as combating ableism in prenatal testing and counselling processes, ensuring all parents are operating in an enabling environment and have the social and economic supports they need to raise any child, including a child with disabilities or who is otherwise socially excluded, and promoting the rights and inclusion of persons with disabilities in all spheres of public and private life.” That’s, of course, if they are actually allowed to be born.Ironically, they’re against the death penalty. Go figure.last_img read more
