Reading Cooperative Bank Raises Employee Starting Wage To 15

first_img(NOTE: Reading Cooperative Bank has two locations in Wilmington — 230 Lowell Street and 352 Middlesex Avenue.)READING, MA — Reading Cooperative Bank (RCB) recently announced that it would be increasing the minimum wage for all Bank employees to $15 per hour. The decision was announced at RCB’s year-end employee meeting, where President & CEO Julie Thurlow spoke to the company about the Board of Directors’ plan to help full-and-part-time employees struggling with the rising cost of living in Massachusetts.“We just felt like it was the right thing to do,” Thurlow responded when asked about the move. “We understand that one size does not fit all, and we would never presume that every company can afford to take such measures. The Bank still strongly believes that matters such as this should remain in the hands of individuals, not government.”Thurlow went on to elaborate about the plight of small businesses in the area: “As much as we strive to support workers who just want to make a living wage, we are certainly cognizant of the limitations that our local small business owners face daily and respect the decisions they have to make.”(NOTE: The above press release is from Reading Cooperative Bank.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Netflix doesnt see any standout competitors yet

first_imgCindy Holland is Netflix’s vice president of original content.  Matt Winkelmeyer/Getty Images Though the streaming landscape may seem crowded, Netflix says it still doesn’t see many stand-out competitors. During a session at the Code Conference on Tuesday, Netflix Vice President of Original Content Cindy Holland said the company has been anticipating competition for years. Holland noted that though platforms like Disney Plus are on the way, Netflix always figured “all of these traditional players would enter into our space.” If anything, it was a motivation to invest in original content to begin with — eventually those traditional players might stop licensing to Netflix.”We believed this shift would all happen, it’s just taken many years longer than we thought,” Holland said.  Share your voice 0 Digital Mediacenter_img Tags Post a commentlast_img read more

Bosss bad jokes can improve your job satisfaction

first_imgIf relationships are good, use of both positive and negative humour by leaders can help improve their subordinates’ job satisfaction, suggests new research.“Generally, people think that positive humour, which is inclusive, affiliative and tasteful, is good in leadership, and negative humour, which is aggressive and offensive, is bad,” said one of the researchers Christopher Robert, associate professor at University of Missouri in the US.“In our study, we found the effects of humour depend on the relationship between leaders and subordinates,” Robert noted. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Specifically, both positive and negative humour use by leaders is positively related to their subordinates’ job satisfaction when the relationship between the leader and subordinates is good. However, when the leader-subordinate relationship is bad, both negative and positive types of humour are associated with lower job satisfaction. In other words, for leaders, sometimes good humour has bad effects and bad humour has good effects on subordinates. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixTo test their theory, the researchers developed two sets of matched questionnaires, one for leaders and one for their subordinates. They analysed responses from about 70 leaders and their 241 subordinates in 54 organisations. “The findings suggest that if leaders wish to integrate humour into their interactions with subordinates, they should first assess whether or not their subordinates are likely to interpret their humourous overtures positively,” Robert said.  These results also have implications for leaders’ strategic use of humor.“Instead of using humour to build relationships, leaders should work to build strong relationships through other means such as through clear communication, fair treatment, and providing clear and useful feedback. Humour then can be used to maintain those strong relationships,” Robert suggested. The study was published in the journal Group & Organisation Management.last_img read more
