Mother's Day Special

Holidays often mean more business to restaurants. On this Mother’s Day weekend, however, I would like to contribute a discussion to mothers --- Do you know how happy your mom is? Have you wondered how much your mother’s work is worth?

According to this ABC News video, Norway, Australia, and Iceland are the top three countries with the happiest moms. Mothers in the U.S. only rank the 31st among those mothers who are living in the 43 developed countries. If we break down a mother’s work into 14 different jobs/tasks and calculate how much we need to pay for a mother’s work based on the national average wages suggested by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, we can come up with a salary of $61,436 for a mother.

I wish every mother a happy Mother’s Day; I am sure both my mother and father are happy. Even though I am not able to spend the Mother’s Day with my parents, I talked to them on the phone.

What is the cutest marketing campaign you’ve ever seen? Can business use some of the marketing ideas of Mother’s Day in the Father’s Day?

  1. Why is it that many of us go out to a restaurant on a holiday instead of making a meal and eating at home with family? Doesn't it mean more to be eating a home cooked meal on a holiday? It seems weird to me that Norway, Iceland, and Australia have the happiest moms, it is weird because it is the most random combination of places. What makes them so different from everywhere else, that theie moms would be so happy. What makes the United States ranked 31 of 43 for happiest moms? What do we do that makes our moms not happy? I love my mom. I love many moms, my aunts, my grandmas, my friends moms who treat me like their own child, but I would definitely not even think about paying any mom $61,436. Although they may deserve a lot, I do not think that they deserve this. I hope that I make my mom happy. Happy Mother's Day to all moms.

The Varying Demographics of the Target Market The Ritz-Carlton’s typical target market includes: business executives, corporate, leisure travelers, typically middle-aged persons and elders, and families from the upper and upper-middle class section of society .   This infers a large range of types of travelers in which all are similar in that they are not opposed to spending extra for the luxurious ambiance. However, with

The challenges of SB 93 (California Senate Bill No. 93) will impose on the employers and their human resource management team (by Brittany Schaffer)

The COVID-19 pandemic started in early 2020, and it has caused massive changes within a short period of time. One of the most rememberable effects of the COVID-19 pandemic was that businesses had to come to a complete halt, forcing them to lay off employees. California's unemployment rates went up.  Now that the stay-at-home orders have lifted, people start to come out. Businesses are now reopening, looking to rehire their laid-off employees. Before the pandemic, employers had the option of recalling only a certain number of laid-off employees they would want to rehire based on employees' job performance. That option had been changed after Governor Gavin Newsome signed into law - Senate Bill 93, which went into effect on April 16th, 2021. The California Senate Bill No. 93 (SB 93) According to SB 93, companies in specific industries, mainly the hospitality industry, have the obligation to provide job opportunities in written form to qualified employees being laid off due to COVI

Want to win in future competitions? Invest in data-driven decisions now

Speaking of the permanent changes in the hospitality industry, many people will probably agree that demands for “bleisure”/“work-from-anywhere” travel and contactless self-service will continue to grow in the near future. Not everyone, however, realizes that data-driven decisions will become a key driver for growth in the industry, which has already affected how we do business now.   Automatic service enables businesses to capture more operational and consumer data for business decisions   One advantage of using automatic service comes from its ability to spontaneously capture and store real-time operational and consumer data for additional analysis. In the old-time when businesses still relied on workers to serve customers, operational data were collected usually through careful book-keeping, documentations, and observations; consumer data through market research were often limited to their perceptions, behavioral intentions, or past experience.     Now that automatic service is provi
