Qantas Airways’ 28,000 employees will be receiving a £43 million bonus as a reward for agreeing to an 18-month pay freeze policy to cut costs.The bonus will be worth 5% of an employee’s base annual salary.It will cost approximately AUS$90 million on full implementation.This news follows Qantas reporting its best half-year profit for four years in August 2015. The bonus is designed to demonstrate the organisation’s appreciation for employees’ hard work and dedication.The bonus does not extend to employees who are part of management bonus schemes, which will be determined separately.Alan Joyce, chief executive officer of Qantas Group, said: “The rapid turnaround of the Qantas Group has only been made possible through the dedication and hard work of all our staff.”Our ability to make these bonus payments reflects a bright future for the Qantas Group, provided we stay focused on fully delivering the transformation program that has brought us this far.”Qantas expects to have reached at least AUS$875 million of the targeted AUS$2 billion of benefits in the Qantas Transformation programme as of the end of financial year 2015.
EXCLUSIVE: Around three-quarters (76%) of employer respondents cite budget as the biggest barrier to introducing benefits they would like to offer, according to research by Employee Benefits and Staffcare.The Employee Benefits/Staffcare Benefits research 2017, which surveyed 271 employer respondents in February-March 2017, also found that the percentage of respondents citing technology limitations as a barrier has also grown year on year, up to 19% from 13% in 2016.This year’s research also bears out an issue that we often hear anecdotally from reward professionals: that they are time poor. In 2017, time is cited as a barrier to introducing benefits they would like to offer by 38% of respondents, up from 29% in 2016.Read the full Employee Benefits/Staffcare Benefits research 2017.
Yorkshire-based property development and construction organisation Caddick Construction has launched a bespoke health and wellbeing programme for its 140 employees, addressing the mental health concerns of men working in the construction sector.The Mindset programme, provided by Hero, was implemented on 12 February 2019 and has been designed to support staff with both their physical and mental health. It has a particular focus on addressing depression, anxiety, stress and the high suicide statistics among men in the construction industry.The new initiative includes one-to-one health checks and screenings, covering areas such as blood pressure, cholesterol and blood tests, mental health first aid training, employee workshops, which will be ongoing throughout 2019, and wellbeing training for all direct line managers.The management workshops highlight the importance of wellbeing at work and teach managers how to support their team members.Andrew Murray, managing director at Caddick Construction, said: “Our employees are our greatest asset and we want to ensure they feel valued and supported. We are thrilled to be leading the way when it comes to mental resilience and wellbeing in the workplace, issues which should not and cannot be ignored.”The initiatives included within the health and wellbeing programme were based on the results of an employee wellbeing survey, and the programme was communicated to employees via email.Murray added: “As [an employer], we take our responsibility to our team members seriously and want to support them in as many ways possible to ensure they are both healthy and happy inside and outside of work. I’m confident this project will deliver tangible results for our staff that will enhance and improve the health and wellbeing [of] our employees, whether office-based or on site.”
CHARLESTON, SC (WSVN) – A cruise ship is back in port, Thursday, after a female passenger went overboard, earlier this week.According to officials, the tragedy occurred early Wednesday morning aboard the Carnival Ecstasy cruise ship, about 15 miles off the coast of Grand Bahama Island.Witnesses said 32-year-old Rina Patel of Interlaken, New York, had been on the 11th deck of the ship when she apparently jumped overboard.The Coast Guard searched for hours but was not able to find her.The cruise ship had left Nassau, Bahamas, and was en route to Charleston, South Carolina.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

MIAMI BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) – A couple visiting South Florida were robbed of 18 brand new iPhones after leaving them in the back of their rental SUV.The victims, who were visiting from Chile, had just bought 18 iPhone XS Max phones at the Apple store on Lincoln Road, on Friday.They put them in six separate bags in the back of their rented SUV before crooks smashed out the back window and took all of them.The tourists were likely followed because the crime happened as the couple stopped to grab coffee at the Starbucks near 16th Street and Alton Road, immediately after they bought those phones.The total loss is estimated at over $18,000.If you have any information on this burglary, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.

Glamour has fired its controversial “Man Needs a Date” blogger after the site was inundated with comments from outraged readers.In a note posted on Glamour.com, the magazine explained its rationale for removing the blogger, Mike Cherico, from the site: “Our ultimate goal here is to open a productive conversation about men, sex, love and dating; clearly, that can’t happen when the majority of readers would like to pulverize the blogger.”The latest swath of vitriol for the Los Angeles-based Cherico—a high school English teacher who had blogged as a sort of “serial-dater” for Glamour since 2007—seemed to stem from a post he wrote about a date, in which he says he left a woman who appeared to have a cold sore. The woman launched a blog to counter Cherico’s version of the date, which was then linked to his post in the comments section.Her 3,000-plus word post was eventually taken down, but not before the floodgates opened. “It will be a truly disappointing decision if Mike still remains as a blogger,” one of the 200-plus commenters wrote. “I truly and sincerely expected higher standards from this magazine.”“I realize that this punk is driving HUGE site hits, which equates to $$$, but at some point Conde Naste [sic] has to operate with integrity,” wrote another. “At least I hope so.”Another summed up the call for Cherico’s removal this way: “How can a magazine that promotes self-confidence and health in women keep this toxic person employed?”The dust-up generated reaction overseas, where a British blogger wondered if Cherico is the “most hated blogger in the U.S.A.”For its part, Glamour says it will replace Cherico with a new blogger “soon.”
The anticipation today ran thick. I almost passed out at my desk awaiting the news.Wednesday afternoon, at an event in San Francisco, Apple co-founder/CEO Steve Jobs unveiled the company’s much hyped tablet device. Called the iPad, it enables users to browse the Web, read e-books, watch videos, listen to music and play games, among other things. The iPad has a multi-touch screen with a virtual keyboard and is available with 16, 32, or 64 GB of SSD storage. (The device will sell for $499 for 16GB of memory, $599 for 32GB and $699 for 64GB.)At the event, Jobs said the Wi-Fi version will be available in 60 days, while the 3G version will be available in 90 days. So far, the iPad has major book publishers on board and a version of the New York Times has been adapted for the device. OK, so maybe I didn’t really almost pass out at my desk, but I did follow some live blogging about the unveiling. I thought it strange that as much talk as there had been about the device being a “game changer” for newspaper and magazine publishers that Jobs made no mention of magazine clients at the unveiling. Sure, Apple got some things right, and some things wrong. But, either way, will consumers want it? Will it in fact change the way they consume magazines and newspapers?I reached out over Twitter to get some initial feedback from our followers. Here’s a sampling of the responses we’ve received so far. Leave yours in the comment section below.@mattrett: Worst name ever = 1st thought. @pacificweddings: awesome! I want one. @givingcity: Are they really calling it iPad? Seriously? Did they ask any women at all before they came up with this clever mark? @breizh2008: Awesome ! @marcusgrimm: Priced to make an impact. Given the large format, though, publishers will need to think how an app is different than the website. @mcnamdave: Surprised by the low price, lack of multitasking and camera etc… Underwhelmed on the whole.. Game changer? NO, Player, YES @Ana_P_Rodrigues: I want an i-Pad! I want an i-Pad! I want an i-Pad! I want an i-Pad!@henrydonahue: why no mags on #ipad? 1) limits of rich media on 3G 2) pubs want customer info 3) expense ($629 + $30/mo.?)= lack of ubiquity
In announcing the launch of the Daily last week, News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch said that the $30 million development costs of The Daily were written off and that the digital publication costs less than $500,000 per week to produce. “We’ll be happy when we’re selling millions,” said Murdoch. “Our ambitions are high but the costs are low.” Apple is troubleshooting the crashing and slow loading times with an upgrade today, according to the blog gadgetell.com. While it’s probably not surprising given the buzz around the launch of News Corp.’s tablet-only publication, The Daily is currently #1 in “Top Apps” and #1 in “News Apps,” according to topappcharts.com. However, the app is met with mixed reviews in the App store, gaining an average two-star rating. The trouble seems to lie in the image uploading – one customer says, “Upgraded to newer version and now thumbnails show up,” giving the app two stars. Another user claims, “The update does not show the cover content. The ads seem to load faster now.” One user gave the app one star, but remains optimistic about the possibility of the product. “It crashed before, now it doesn’t load. Great app when it works.” The quote was followed with a smiling emoticon. Download times are a major issue for publishers launching iPad editions and a big reason why downloads falter for many publications after the initial launch. Virgin Media’s iPad magazine launched in November with frustratingly long download times and the second issue was delayed for six weeks as the team worked out the bugs.
Paul Jowdy, formerly vice president and publisher at Conde Nast’s Details and Details.com, is now vice president and publisher of Every Day with Rachael Ray.Before his short stint at Details (which began in January 2011), Jowdy served as vice president and publisher of other Conde Nast’s brands, Bon Appetit and Gourmet.At Details, Jowdy had replaced Steven DeLuca, who was fired from the publication in October 2009.Suzanna Grimes, executive VP of Reader’s Digest Association and Lifestyles Communities president, says, “We are thrilled to welcome him to the team and know he will be a great partner to editor-in-chief Liz Vaccariello.” Vaccariello joined Every Day with Rachael Ray in November 2010, leaving her post as senior vice president and editor-in-chief of Rodale publication Prevention. Under Vaccariello’s tutelage, EDWRR relaunched with their May 2011 issue. Changes were made in both design and editorial.From first quarter 2010 to first quarter 2011, EDWRR saw ad pages drop by 9.2 percent, from 117.64 pages to 106.85 pages. Details fared worse from Q1 2010 to Q1 2011, falling 13.9 percent fro 144.38 pages to 124.32 pages, according to the Publisher’s Information Bureau.
Organizers relaunched the event as a one-day conference in 2012 after a three-year hiatus, but attendance was sparse, according to a report from the conference. Silbering says about 100 industry professionals came last year and that fewer were expected in 2013. Prior WPA conferences, held over two days, had attracted a “significantly higher” amount of attendees and sponsors, she adds. The Maggie Banquet, the WPA’s annual awards program typically following the day-long conference, will be held as scheduled.Plans for rescheduling the conference are undetermined, but Silbering hopes to hold it later this year. Decisions are pending approval of the WPA board which meets next in May.”We hope to come back this year,” she says, “but there’s nothing positive yet.”The association had changed its conference format this year by adding more education sessions in accordance with industry research and survey data, but potential registrants were unresponsive.”The on-site conference market and the new generation that an association like ours is trying to reach are not connecting,” she says. “The way that they obtain education and the time they have and the resources that are available to them are so widely different than they were five years ago.”To stay updated on the latest FOLIO: news, become a Facebook fan and follow us on Twitter! The Western Publishing Association tried a new approach, but got the same result.The group announced that it has postponed its annual conference originally scheduled for April 26 in Los Angeles. Jane Silbering, executive director of the WPA, cites lagging registration as the primary reason for the decision. “We felt that we were not getting significant enough registration to warrant moving forward,” she says. “The signs led us to believe we would not reach the goals we had set.”
The marketing services niche in the B2B publishing world continues to develop its own distinct identity. The latest evidence is 1105 Media, Inc.’s decision to consolidate those services under a separate business unit. “We decided to formalize our marketing services effort under the 05 Group umbrella for both branding purposes and to recognize the type of work we do outside of traditional media and events,” says Allain, who is heading the group until a general manager can be hired. A newly created division of the Chatsworth, Calif., company—The 05 Group—will now shoulder the responsibility of delivering an expanding menu of customized marketing-related services to 1105 Media clients in technology, government, education, security and healthcare markets. That work has been handled by individual 1105 Media brands, which will still be involved in a supporting role. But growing demand for custom services, combined with the company’s deep knowledge of the markets it serves and its push to position itself as a leader in technology-enabled solutions, created the right conditions for breaking out that part of the business now, says Henry Allain, 1105’s COO. But Allain notes that the organizational retooling also stands to deliver numerous practical advantages to clients. With a dedicated staff, which is now being assembled alongside existing media teams ramping up the services, The 05 Group will be able to thoughtfully craft the kind of targeted and specialized solutions 1105 clients increasingly demand, he says. Multi-functional teams will be deployed to deliver services spanning content creation, event management and design services, to research, branding and custom publications, the company says. “Our efforts are really around what our core clients are telling us they need to achieve internal marketing goals,” says Allain. “And since our markets and our clients’ markets are so niche they need our expertise to quickly resolve problems and challenges. Agencies with limited knowledge of our markets aren’t a very effective choice.”
A Wasserstein & Co. trustee, Pamela Wasserstein most recently served as VP of corporate development for Tribeca Enterprises, the company behind the Tribeca Film Festival. Wasserstein will work directly with editor-in-chief Adam Moss and publisher Larry Burstein as the company seeks to further invest in alternative revenue streams, including its new branded content studio and live events. Two years ago, the company cut New York’s print frequency from 42 issues per year to 29 amid declines in local readership, opting to devote more resources to its digital-only verticals. (Overall, print circulation remains relatively healthy, down only about 1.2 percent year-over-year in 2015, according to the Alliance for Audited Media.) Photo: Cole Wilson – The New York Times Pamela Wasserstein has been named CEO of New York Media, parent company of New York magazine, the Cut, Grub Street, and Vulture, among others, effective May 2nd. “It’s all family, every aspect of this place,” Moss tells The New York Times. “She’s really been kind of one of us for a long time.” “In recent years it became clear that the company needed an in-house CEO, and we are fortunate to have someone uniquely positioned for the role in Pam Wasserstein,” wrote Bagaria in a prepared statement. “I’m pleased to be leaving the company in such good hands.” Wasserstein has spent the past year-and-a-half as co-chair and head of strategy for the publishing company, which the Wasserstein family trust has owned since her father, the late Bruce Wasserstein, purchased it in 2004 for $55 million. She succeeds Anup Bagaria, co-managing partner of Wasserstein Partners, LP, who had held the CEO role at New York Media ever since the Wasserstein takeover.
It’s hardly the first time a major media organization has attempted to integrate a house of mutually relevant but separately operated brands. The key difference here, according to ALM’s editorial director, George Haj, is that this reorganization is not driven solely by a desire to cut costs or necessarily increase efficiency. No redundancies have resulted, and no layoffs will occur. Haj says the opportunities for journalists have never been greater. A reporter for the Connecticut Law Tribune, for example, whose website receives an average of 32,000 visitors each month, theoretically now has access to ALM’s overall audience of six million business professionals, provided the content he or she produces is sufficiently relevant and compelling. The business media and events firm has undergone a comprehensive reimagining of its editorial structure, aimed at shifting the company from a large bucket of related but independent brands to a cohesive, integrated news organization serving the legal, financial, real estate, and insurance sectors. Updating the Business Model Six months after being reacquired by Wasserstein & Co. for $417 million, in 2014, the company purchased b2b media and information firm Kennedy Information’s Consulting Research & Advisory division, a notable departure from the company’s legal-centric portfolio. A $40 million acquisition of Summit Professional Networks, an insurance industry publisher, followed just two weeks later. In many ways, the reorganization is a manifestation of the extent to which ALM has evolved from its roots as the publishing company formerly known as American Lawyer Media. A Different Kind of Reorganization “The brands are still very important to us. In many places, they have very deep connections to their local community, particularly our dailies,” Haj continues. “We don’t want to lose that. We’re trying to maintain the local coverage but also expose those audiences to a much bigger palette of news stories that we think will be very appealing to them.” Still, the reorganization’s status as a dreaded corporate maneuver in today’s media industry is not without reason, even in the absence of widespread layoffs. Througohut the process, ALM proactively sought employee cooperation and input. A “Stand Up for Content” initiative was implemented, under which employees formed focus groups to brainstorm and pitch ideas for the new editorial structure to management. Striking a Balance “ALM is looking at adjacent markets to legal that have many of the same characteristics,” ALM’s chief marketing officer, Lenny Izzo, told Folio: at the time. “We didn’t do it just to be more efficient,” Haj, promoted from Southern regional editor-in-chief as part of the shuffle, tells Folio:. “It really was to get more stories to bigger and better audiences. Under our old structure, those 170 people were sliced into a few dozen brands. Some of the staffs were as small as four or five people. It was very difficult to get a lot of sharing, a lot of coordination.” ALM hopes to change that. “Previously, if you were a reporter in Miami, there weren’t really a lot of places you could go unless you moved to New York or Washington. I think this will allow us to retain talent and create great opportunities for people to move around the company, within verticals, in a way that just was not possible before,” Haj tells Folio:. “Instead of each brand hosting their own stories and being somewhat limited, technologically, in how we could share them, we are now working on Law.com as kind of the entryway for a lot of our coverage. We’re hosting about a quarter of our legal stories on Law.com each day, and by doing that we’re able to put them on multiple websites, in multiple newsletters, and get a much broader audience there.” For the past serveral years, the term “reorganization” has carried with it a general sense of dread in the publishing industry, often a harbinger of reduced frequencies, shuttered titles, and laid off employees. Haj cites, as an example, recent Department of Labor regulations about the fiduciary responsibilities of investment advisors, a story which was picked up by three separate journalists within ALM’s legal, financial, and insurance groups. The hope behind the reorganization is that, going forward, the curating hand of the theme desks will allow ALM to leverage its editorial expertise to produce one, multi-faceted story that can then be deployed to all relevant audiences. “The new structure really allows us to be relentlessly digital,” says Haj. “In our news meetings, we don’t talk about print at all. Is print still there? Sure. We’ve got magazines, we’ve got weeklies, we’ve got daily newspapers that have to be fed, but for the first time, in our conversations with the editors, everything starts and ends with digital. That’s been a big shift.” The challenge is embracing the digital revolution at scale while still maintaining the relationships ALM’s portfolio brands have worked so hard to foster with their respective audiences. Under the reorganization, ALM’s 170 reporters and editors — who populate brands and verticals like The American Lawyer or Credit Union Times — will work closely with a series of “theme desk editors” to develop stories that might resonate audiences across multiple brands. Earlier this year, ALM acquired Legal Week from Incisive Media, a move that expanded the company’s global footprint but likely brought with it some further overlap with ALM’s existing portfolio of brands. Two months later, ALM folded the print edition of Inside Counsel, saying the title’s audience had, by and large, migrated to digital. As the company continues to emphasize wide ranging digital coverage of its served markets, it’s easy to foresee other print editions enduring the same fate.
One of the first goals of ongoing budget talks among congressional leaders and the White House aimed at raising the discretionary caps for defense and non-defense spending is to agree on offsets for the extra spending.The discussions are closely guarded and it’s not clear whether any progress has been achieved over the past couple of weeks. One approach under consideration, though, could make negotiators’ work much easier. The two sides could agree to raise both spending caps, but only offset the increase in domestic spending, reported CQ Roll Call.The fiscal 2016 budget framework established by congressional Republicans already calls for stashing $38 billion in extra funds in DOD’s overseas contingency operations account without offsetting the extra spending, so raising the Budget Control Act ceiling for defense by the same amount without finding a corresponding offset would hardly constitute a stretch.No agreement on has been reached to adopt that approach, however. The two sides have agreed to drop discussions about using the chained consumer price index (CPI) to offset higher spending. That approach, which has been discussed previously, would use lower inflation rates to calculate growth in entitlement programs and, as a result, reduce government spending.Adoption of the chained CPI appeals to Republicans but many Democrats and groups that represent senior citizens vehemently oppose switching methods to measure inflation. With the chained CPI on the cutting room floor, budget negotiators will need to rely on less sweeping measures to offset higher spending, according to the story. And it’s still not clear whether the talks will focus on a one- or two-year deal to raise the spending caps. Dan Cohen AUTHOR
