Career Progress in a Book Printing Company
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 4/30/2011  Keywords: Book Printing Company

Book printing company reorganizations and takeovers inevitably affect careers. Employees unfortunately cannot choose their new owners. After a takeover, staff from the acquiring company may enhance their position in the larger organization, whereas the former management of the bought company is realigned. The managers may stay, leave or be downgraded. The more junior staff may leave as the new owners rationalize the departments, for example, by cutting out competing editorial units, merging production and design and rights departments, amalgamating the sales forces, centralizing HR, accounting and distribution services, and relocating offices (even across the Atlantic). Many staffs who leave with their redundancy payments reappear in other book printing company, start their own businesses in specialist services or consultancy, or go freelance.
Freelance work, for example in editorial, design or web design, offers the freedom of working at home without the rigors and costs of commuting to work. Outside the general hubbub of a book printing house, and with fewer interruptions, freelancers may be able to work faster and plan their day to their own rhythm. But forced to maintain a flow of work and pressured to meet deadlines, the freelancer day often extends far into the night, to weekends and public holidays. The best ways of obtaining work are through personal recommendation, professional contacts, or by personal approach. Industry bodies such as the SfEP (Society for Editors and Proofreaders) and the Society of Indexers maintain registers of freelancers. The National Union of Journalists recommends hourly rates for editorial work such as proofreading. Many people in their 30s reach a plateau below management level and fear that their rapidly approaching fortieth birthday is their last chance to make a change.

It has shops on virtually all the main high streets in the UK, and sells 40m books a year. A valuation of its airport and railway shops in 2007 came up with a figure, although sales through these outlets have a lower hardcover book printing proportion of books (20 per cent) than the high street shops (estimated at between 25 to 30 per cent). WH Smith is popular with two age groups in particular, from 15 to 19 and from 45 to 54. In the UK Borders has around 70 stores; it has an urban bias, with a strong customer base amongst the 35-44 age bracket and the AB socio-demographic group. In the USA, Borders has nearly 500 superstores, while its main rival, the world largest bookseller Barnes & Noble, has over 700. During the 1990s these chains were credited with transforming US bookselling. The profits from fewer and fewer mega-selling titles are required, more than ever before, to carry the losses sustained by the rest of the list. The chain booksellers differ in their character, and have aimed to develop distinctive brands. For example, WH Smith has the aim to be Britain most popular bookseller, stationer and newsagent. Since the abolition of Net Book Agreement in 1997 the transformation of the bookshops has been bought at a cost, a highly visible minority of books sell very well indeed, and probably better than ever, while the majority struggle to perform.
