JAKARTA -- Indonesian national flag carrier Garuda is bringing music to the skies with a series of live acoustic concerts on domestic flights, the airline said. Passengers will be serenaded at 35,000 feet in a scheme aimed at wooing millennials "who want a different flight experience", airline spokesman M. Ikhsan Rosan told AFP. The carrier held its first in-flight concert on Wednesday, when two musicians performed for a captive audience aboard a flight between the capital, Jakarta, and the holiday island of Bali. Garuda said sets would last 10 to 15 minutes on select flights, and there would be a focus on promoting upcoming talent. While it may prove an unforgettable flying experience for some, it may not be everyone’s idea of a good time. In 2017, US airline Southwest introduced live shows on some flights to a mixed reaction from passengers. Some travellers said they preferred minimum human interaction while flying and said music would distract them from sleeping or reading. … [Read more...] about Indonesian airline lures millennials with live music in the skies
MANILA -- Meeting quotas may be a "hard initiation" for millennials, who should learn how to ride with high performance industries, the head of a business process outsourcing said Thursday. Alorica built its facilities in the Philippines, Japan and South Korea to cater to millennials, "collaborative and in tune with the times," said the firm's president for Asia, Bong Borja. "Millennials on their first job, maybe they're not used to it yet. It's probably a hard initiation for some of them, but I think it's not unique. Every high performance industry would have those," Borja told ANC's The Boss. "They're not unfair quotas," Borja said, when asked about metrics for BPO workers. Working the night shift, working on holidays and being at home during the day and on weekdays when the rest of their family is out remains the "primary" cause of attrition in BPOs, he said. Borja said 2019 would be a "better year" for BPOs, having absorbed higher taxes for top officials holding regional positions. … [Read more...] about For millennials in BPOs, quotas are a ‘hard initiation’: Alorica boss
By Thomas Black Bloomberg Wed., Jan. 9, 2019 Truck driver Justin Osborne pulled up to a house in the Dallas suburbs last month and started unloading an oven, a dishwasher and a microwave. His mission: Help J.B. Hunt Transport Services Inc. win the battle for new delivery riches spurred by e-commerce. Wielding a cordless drill, Osborne hooked up all three appliances in about 45 minutes and sped off for the next home. Meanwhile, across the urban sprawl of North Texas, a colleague navigated a sofa bed down a tight hallway while another driver unpacked and assembled a patio table. The array of cargo would have been rare just a few years ago, when shoppers typically bought big, bulky goods from local shops and department stores with their own delivery services. Now that consumers are more comfortable buying appliances, treadmills and outdoor grills online, national trucking companies are plowing investment into winning the business by displacing or buying up local … [Read more...] about As millennials ‘buy everything online,’ truckers reap new riches
A recent article from Buzzfeed examined the phenomenon of burnout in the millennial generation, which includes people currently between the ages of 22 and 38. The author attributed millennials’ upbringings, the economic environment they grew up in, and social media to burnout and the anxiety that comes with doing easy, straightforward tasks, like running errands. The phenomenon, however, can actually affect anyone, according to Michael Leiter, a professor of organizational psychology who studies burnout. Burnout is more likely to occur when someone is going through a major life transition, like entering the working world or nearing the middle of their life, Leiter told INSIDER. Whether it’s the political landscape, an inadequate work-life balance, or a stressful relationship, a number of experiences can leave us feeling drained of energy on the regular. While things like meditation are said to help prevent burnout, a new article from Buzzfeed ascertains that the … [Read more...] about Millennials consider themselves the ‘burnout generation.’ Here’s how an expert suggests they cope with it.
