Ten DOs and DON’Ts in New York City Suggested by Concierge.com

1. Do NOT take a Pedi-cab (unless one wants to go green). Do take the subway because it is cheap, fast, and convenience.
2. Do NOT eat anything from a hot dog cart. Do try the classic, all-beef deli dog ($3.10) at Katz’s Delicatessen (205 E Houston St) or other alternatives such as Dogmatic (26 E. 17th St) and Crif Dogs (113 St. Marks Place).
3. Do NOT go to the top of the Empire State Building for a view. Do enjoy a view with a drink in the Rainbow Room on the 65 floor at the Rockefeller Center.
4. Do NOT get cupcakes at Magnolia Bakery. Do visit the Rocco’s Pastry Shop (243 Bleecker St) and Cupcake Café (545 Ninth Ave).
5. Do NOT take a twilight carriage ride in Central Park. It sounds romantic, but the horses and drivers seem tired, and the street is not as clean if it is not dirty yet. Do go early in the morning and walk.
6. Do NOT east at Tavern on the Green (been closed in 2009 anyway). Do enjoy a real meal at the River Café (One Water Street; price is not cheap though). Or, go to Dumbo in Brooklyn by a cab or water taxi.
7. Do NOT eat in Time Squares unless you are a big fan of a franchised restaurant. Do try the Hell’s Kitchen.
8. Do NOT see a Time Square comedy show. Do stop by the Upright Citizens Brigade in Chelsea (307 W. 26th St).
9. Do NOT shop at Century 21. Do spend some time at Lord & Taylor’s flagship store (Fifth Ave & 38th St).
10. Enjoy a late night in the Lower East Side.

Yammer: A Social Networking Site Exclusively for the Workplace

Effective internal communications among employees are related to some desirable organizational outcomes, such as robust morale, a clear vision, low turnover, and high employee engagement. The question is what platform can serve the purpose. This ABC News video introduces “ Yammer ,” an exclusive internal communication tool for companies. A user must use a valid company e-mail address to sign up for an account. Once an account is validated, the user will be led to the company page that is pretty much like a Facebook page. The difference is that only the users whose e-mail addresses share the same domain can see the wall and communicate with each other. I have no question about whether Yammer could be a useful internal communication tool for companies, but I just wonder: how many social networking sites do people need for communication? Why people have to “create” so many platforms or channels for “effective communications”? To many people, Facebook is only for “friends,” whe

How Covid-19 will change the HR department? (by Vivian Tan)

With the current pandemic happening, many businesses are having a hard time. It is hard for them to maintain to pay all their employees, and many things have changed on how companies are running during Covid-19. Because of this virus, employees work from home and might lack the motivation to finish their tasks. Many businesses shut their doors infinitely and file for bankruptcy because it is hard to pay their employees, and there are not many businesses coming in. In the hospitality industry, the HR department must create policies and answer questions from the outbreak. It is also essential that they communicate with workers for any updates and make sure that it does not affect their daily operations.     When it comes to covid-19 concerns, the HR department should communicate with the employees for any updates on the virus, such as informing employees about policies, personal hygiene, posting signs around the workplace about symptoms of the virus, and wear masks. Also, asking employee

The 2020 hospitality and tourism trends that will likely stay in 2021 and beyond

The COVID-19 pandemic had made an unprecedented impact on the   global economy   in 2020. The good news is the long-waited COVID-19 vaccines will   soon become available . Let’s hope that the coronavirus will disappear soon as we enter the New Year.     Looking back before we look forward   At year-end 2019, I predicted a few   2020 trends   in hospitality, retail, and tourism businesses. For example, I recommended that we should pay special attention to the following areas:      A shifting focus on food delivery, sustainable food, and quick-casual restaurants. Using AI and facial recognition in service operations.   The threats from Google, Amazon, and Airbnb as a (potential, new) giant tourism enterprise in the market.   Investors’ growing interest in boutique retail stores and hotels. Customer loyalty issues as more travel companies adopted the dynamic pricing strategy even in their frequent traveler programs.   Safety issues during travel.     Certainly, the global pandemic was not
