The Formula One World Championship is the premier global car racing competition. This year’s racing started in Bahrain in March of this year and will feature in 22 cities globally over 9 months.
Last week we mentioned the Euro Football Championship, but we would be remiss if we didn’t mention South America’s 47th Copa America, which is also taking place this month.
“HPE and AIRINC clearly demonstrated examples of innovative solutions that impact talent strategy and employee experience underpinned by the use of technology…achieving long-term business impacts.”
After a difficult past year, the UEFA European Football Championship (the EUROs) 2020 finally kicks off this Friday, one year later than planned, when Italy entertain Turkey in Rome’s 70,000 capacity Stadio Olimpico.
Predicting the first round of the NBA playoffs might seem easy. The favorites usually triumph and there are few big surprises. But what’s even easier than that is using AIRINC’s Salary Evaluation Tool to compare the cost of living for domestic relocations between the cities facing each other.
Have your assignees ever asked, “The price of gas went up 20%, so why hasn’t my cost-of-living allowance (COLA) increased to match?” .
Predicting a winner of a hockey playoff series isn’t easy. So why not just use cost of living comparisons between the two cities to figure out who will win? It may not have anything to do with hockey, but AIRINC’s Salary Evaluation Tool makes it quick and easy.
If it's not the most interesting job in the world, it's certainly one of them. AIRINC Cost-of-Living Surveyors travel all over the world for roughly six months of the year to collect pricing data. On the surface, this is the dream job for anyone that thrives on challenging global travel – the kind that takes grit and determination to grind through as you move cities on a seemingly daily basis. Instead of touring from site to site though, you move from store to store and source to source in each location, collecting data to populate a market basket of goods, services, housing, and hardship data.
During my recent survey, I visited the Avenue Mall in Manama, a seafront mall stretching for 1.5 km. It reminded me of the Avenue Mall in Kuwait because it provides an outdoor feeling with large glass windows and skylights, while protecting shoppers from the burning sun. As anyone that’s traveled to Bahrain knows, the country is a popular destination for residents of Saudi Arabia seeking recreation and malls are one of the top attractions. Numerous expatriates and Saudi Arabians visit Bahrain for the shopping, movies, restaurants, waterparks, and other activities.
