Mohawk Industries Names Paul De Cock As President Of Flooring North America Segment

  [13-November-2018]  

CALHOUN, Georgia, Nov. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Mohawk Industries, Inc. (NYSE: MHK) today announced that Paul De Cock has been promoted to President of the company's Flooring North America segment. 

For the past ten years, De Cock has served as president of the floor covering division of the Company's Flooring Rest of World segment. In that position, he successfully led businesses manufacturing the Company's major product categories, including carpet, laminate, LVT and wood.

"Paul's deep understanding of the flooring market derives from more than 20 years of experience in Europe and the U.S., with a history of successfully running plants, large manufacturing operations and a multinational sales organization," said Jeff Lorberbaum, chairman and CEO of Mohawk Industries. "His experience includes successfully managing a broad product portfolio across many markets as well as delivering strong results in his past role in our U.S. operations."

After Mohawk's 2005 acquisition of Unilin, De Cock served as President of the Company's North American hard surface business, where he grew the Quick-Step brand in the U.S., integrated the 2007 Columbia wood flooring acquisition and increased sales across all channels. After returning to Europe in 2009, De Cock transformed Unilin's flooring operations from laminate manufacturing into a total hard surface business and expanded direct sales through greenfield and the acquisition of distributors in ten markets worldwide. In 2013, he led the integration of Pergo into Mohawk, improving manufacturing while enhancing the premium brand's value through performance and design innovation and product extensions. Prior to the Company's IVC acquisition, De Cock and his team designed and installed the first automated LVT line in Europe. Most recently, he managed the acquisition of Godfrey Hirst, the largest carpet manufacturer in Australia and New Zealand, and the subsequent consolidation with Mohawk-owned distributors in those markets.

Brian Carson, former president of the Company's Flooring North America segment, will leave the Company on November 12, 2018 to pursue other interests.

Thailand's Smart Visa Made Easier to Help Foreign Experts

  [13-November-2018]  

Three more eligible business activities added and conditions relaxed

BANGKOK, Nov. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The Thai government has improved requirements and conditions for the Smart Visa in order to provide greater convenience for foreign investors and experts in targeted industries who are either already working or seeking to work in Thailand.

Photo - https://mma.prnewswire.com/media/783762/BOI.jpg

Ms. Duangjai Asawachintachit, Secretary General to the Thailand's Board of Investment (BOI), said that the Cabinet meeting on 6 November agreed to improve the qualifications, criteria and incentives for the Smart Visa, a special visa issued to highly-skilled experts, investors, senior executives and startup entrepreneurs working in targeted industries. The objective of the Smart Visa is to support technology and know-how transfer to Thais, which will drive industrial development and transformation in the country.

Smart Visa conditions have been adjusted in three areas: 1) the number of eligible activities; 2) benefits for Smart Visa holders; and 3) qualifications and conditions for applicants.

The list of eligible activities has been extended to include services in alternative dispute resolution, science and technology-based human resource development, and environment and alternative energy management.

In terms of benefits for Smart Visa holders, the Immigration Office will allow Smart Visa holders to use fast-track services at all international airports, including fast lane access.

Conditions for Smart Visa applications have also been relaxed in many areas. For example, the government has changed the income condition for highly-skilled experts and senior executives from a monthly salary of no less than 200,000 baht to a monthly income that also covers bonuses and other incomes. The minimum monthly income for highly-skilled experts has also been changed to 100,000 baht and to 50,000 baht for experts in startups and retired experts. The adjustments are aimed at increasing the country's competitiveness and ability to attract more specialists.

Similarly, the government has improved various conditions in increasing access to capital for startups and strengthening venture capitalists. For example, investments can now be made through venture capital companies. Moreover, if invested in startups, incubator programs or accelerator programs, the minimum investment requirement has been lowered from 20 million baht to no less than 5 million baht.

Smart Visa conditions for foreign startups have also been changed from a yearly visa on first issuance with possibility for two-year renewals to three types of period: to 6 months, 1 year and 2 years. This will enable more foreign startups to participate in startup activities, such as startup camps. Relaxed conditions will assist professionals working for startups in the hopes that they will help make Thailand a regional center for startups activities.

"The changes on Smart Visa conditions have resulted from BOI's discussion with representatives of both the government and the private sector so as to improve our services," Ms. Duangjai said. "We believe the new conditions will better serve the government's policy and goal in attracting more highly-skilled experts, investors and foreign startups in targeted industries, to help transform the Thai economy and achieve the Thailand 4.0 goals."

The Smart Visa is a special visa type for expats working in targeted industries and is issued under certain conditions. Between 1 February and 30 September this year, BOI received a total of 1,078 inquiries, while 37 applications were also submitted. In addition, 28 people working in industries such as digital, robotics and automation have already been qualified and earned the right to obtain Smart Visas.

Netflix revealed as World's Simplest Brand, according to annual study from Siegel+Gale

  [13-November-2018]  

Tech brands, retail and quick-serve restaurants dominate global rankings

NEW YORK, Nov. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Siegel+Gale named Netflix, ALDI and Google as the top three World's Simplest Brands. The 2018 top-ranked companies consistently deliver on their brand promise with simple, clear, intuitive experiences.

For this year's study, Siegel+Gale asked more than 15,000 people across nine countries in the US, Europe, Asia, India, and the Middle East to evaluate brands and industries on their simplicity. Key findings include:

+        55 percent of people are willing to pay more for simpler experiences.  
+        64 percent of people are more likely to recommend a brand that delivers simple
          experiences.
+        A stock portfolio of the simplest global brands has outperformed the average of the
          major indexes by 679 percent since 2009.
+        Companies that fail to provide simple experiences leave an estimated share of $98
          billion on the table.

"World's Simplest Brands quantifies the substantial monetary value of investing in simplifying," said Howard Belk, co-CEO and chief creative officer, Siegel+Gale. "Now in its eighth year, our study reaffirms an increasing demand for transparent, direct, simple experiences that make peoples' lives easier. Once again the data proves that simplicity pays."

Movers and Shakers
Against a backdrop of political, economic and cultural uncertainty, and given rapidly shifting customer expectations, people are demanding simplicity more than ever before. Highlights from this year's global rankings include:
Netflix: For the first time, the leading Internet entertainment service has been named World's Simplest Brand. Its ease of experience, which allows users to stream, pause and resume viewing high-quality contentâ€�”without commercials or commitmentsâ€�”earns them the top honor for simplicity.
ALDI and Lidl: The German discount grocers are a mainstay of our global Top 10. They surpass big-box competitors by virtue of their clear communications, affordable prices and premium private label products.
Spotify and Trivago: The Swedish music streaming service and the German online booking platform are both newcomers to the Top 10 global ranking. 
Uniqlo: In a beleaguered fashion indust! ry, this Japanese clothing retailer's philosophyâ€�”simplicity, quality and longevityâ€�”resonates around the world.
Media struggles: Perhaps not surprisingly, given the current context of 'fake news' claims and evidence of disinformation campaigns, the news and social media industries fared poorly in this year's ranking.
Consistently complex: Again, this year, industries mired in complexity such as insurance, telecommunications and car rental are at the bottom of the ranking.

2018 Top 10 World's Simplest Brands

  1. Netflix
  2. ALDI
  3. Google
  4. Lidl
  5. Carrefour
  6. McDonald's
  7. trivago
  8. Spotify
  9. Uniqlo
  10. Subway

"The top performers in our study operate in crowded, highly competitive marketplaces. That said, their ability to consistently deliver their brands with simple, compelling experiences sets them apart," said David Srere, co-CEO and Chief Strategy Officer at Siegel+Gale. "Companies will benefit greatly by keeping it simple for customers…or suffer the consequences."

PRN: Adecco Group Survey Shows Employers Experience 'Supply Shock' as Migrant Labour Trends Go into Reverse Gear, Driven Mainly by a Fall in Non-EU Migrants Tue, 13 Nov 2018 09:31:30 +0100 http://content.comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/502823.html http://content.comunicati.net/comunicati/turismo/varie/502823.html PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Adecco Group Survey Shows Employers Experience 'Supply Shock' as Migrant Labour Trends Go into Reverse Gear, Driven Mainly by a Fall in Non-EU Migrants

  [13-November-2018]  

LONDON, Nov. 13, 2018 The tightening labour market is driving an increase in wages for key staff and new starters but pay rises are stuck in the middle lane for most workers

/PRNewswire/ -- Employer plans to take on more staff are being hit by worsening skills and labour shortages, partly as a result of a sudden reversal in the growth in the number of both EU and non-EU migrants in employment in the UK.

This is the conclusion of the latest quarterly Labour Market Outlook from the CIPD and The Adecco Group, based on a survey of 1,002 employers, which shows that while the short-term outlook for employment remains strong, labour and skills shortages are accelerating.

The survey's net employment balance â€�“ a measure of the difference between the proportion of employers who expect to increase staff levels and those who expect to decrease staff levels â€�“ has remained extremely positive at +22 (compared to +23 in Q3 2018).

However, among employers which currently have vacancies, seven in ten (70%) report that at least some of their vacancies are proving hard-to-fill, higher than in Summer 2018 (66%) and Spring 2018 (61%). 

In addition, over two in five of all employers (44%) report that it has become more difficult to fill vacancies over the past 12 months at their organisation, while over a third (34%) of employers say that retention pressures have risen during the same period.

This situation is being exacerbated by a relatively significant drop in the number of both EU and non-EU migrants that are employed in the UK. According to the latest official data, the number of non-UK-born workers in the UK decreased by 58,000 between Q2 2017 and Q2 2018, compared with an increase of more than a quarter of a million (+263,000) from Q2 2016 to Q2 2017. Contrary to the popular narrative, the labour supply shock is being driven primarily by falling interest from migrants from outside the EU. The number of non-EU-born workers in the UK decreased by 40,000 between Q2 2017 and Q2 2018, compared with an increase of almost a quarter of a million (225,000) during the same period in the previous year.

Looking ahead, labour supply looks set to be further constrained from 2021 when migration restrictions for EU citizens are introduced, especially for lower-skilled workers.

In particular, employers express concern that the main route for recruiting EU citizens to fill lower-skilled roles that was recently proposed by the Migration Advisory Committee won't be enough to satisfy their recruitment needs. One in ten (10%) employers that currently employ EU citizens report that extending the Youth Mobility Scheme to EU nationals post-Brexit would meet their recruitment needs to a large extent for medium and low-skilled roles.

In addition, a third (33%) of employers who employ non-EU citizens say that the administrative burden of using the current points-based system for non-EU citizens system, which will most likely be adopted for EU citizens from 2021, is too great. Around a quarter (26%) say that the salary threshold is too high and a fifth (20%) of employers say that the cost implications of the current system are also too high.

No movement on pay except for new starters and key staff

While demand for labour remains strong, overall, employers report median basic pay increase expectations for the 12 months to September 2019 of just 2%. However, the squeeze on skills is having a clear impact on many employers' pay decisions:

  • Around half of organisations (48%) that have experienced increased difficulty recruiting staff during the past 12 months have increased starting salaries in response. More than a quarter (27%) have done so for the majority of vacancies, while around a fifth (21%) have done so for a minority of vacancies
  • Among organisations that have experienced increased difficulty retaining staff over the past 12 months, just over half (51%) have increased salaries, with 28% raising salaries for the majority of staff and 23% doing so for key staff only.  Almost half of employers (47%) have not raised salaries at all in response to rising retention difficulties, highlighting the wider productivity challenges and cost pressures facing many organisations

Gerwyn Davies, Senior Labour Market Analyst for the CIPD, the professional body for HR and people development comments:

"The data implies that the pendulum has swung away from the UK as an attractive place to live and work for non-UK born citizens, especially non-EU citizens, during a period of strong employment growth and low unemployment. This has heightened recruitment difficulties for some employers. It also underlines the risk that more non-UK-born citizens and employers will be discouraged from using the post-Brexit system if more support is not provided and it is not made simpler, fairer and more affordable; especially for lower-skilled roles. 

"Against the backdrop of a tight labour market, failure to do this will heighten recruitment difficulties and could lead to negative consequences for existing staff, such as higher workloads, and loss of business or orders for firms. It's vital that businesses understand the workforce challenges they face, and make the relevant investment in skills and adopt the right people management practices to boost productivity in their organisation."

Alex Fleming, Country Head and President of Staffing and Solutions, The Adecco Group UK and Ireland, added:

"The labour market in the UK is tight and this research is reporting increasingly high levels of recruitment and retention difficulties. While the data is not showing wages rising across the board, we are regularly seeing this pressure being exerted in the recruitment space.

"Our clients are often surprised at the market rates when they are making talent-attraction decisions. This 'supply shock' and other pressures will only serve to increase these difficulties, which could easily flow out into the rest of the workforce. In turn, this could cause a wider upward movement on wages.

"Employers should be aware that wages are not the only answer â€�“ as for in-demand employees, marginal salary gains may not be what they most desire. We've seen wider benefits packages, which include flexible working and a good culture often win over a simple increase in salary."

"Discovery: The Adventurous Consumer" leads the list of Innova Market Insights' Top Ten Trends for 2019. The company continuously analyzes global developments in food and beverage launch activity and consumer research to highlight the trends most likely to impact the industry over the coming year and beyond.

Innova Market Insights' top five trends for 2019 are: 

1. Discovery: the Adventurous Consumer 
The food and beverage industry is increasingly focusing on satisfying the adventurous consumer. Consumers are moving out of their comfort zones to explore bolder flavors and multisensory food experiences. There is a focus on heightened sensory delivery, often combined with an element of the unexpected.

2. The Plant Kingdom 
The plant-based market shows no signs of slowing down. Companies and brands are greening up their portfolios to attract mainstream consumers who want to add more plant-based options into their diets. For many, going plant-based is about achieving a healthy and sustainable balance between meat and vegetables, rather than adopting an all-or-nothing way of eating.

3. Alternatives to All 
As more consumers pay attention to health & sustainability, replacement foods and ingredients are on the rise. Health remains the number one reason to buy food alternatives, with one in two US consumers reporting that health is a reason for buying alternatives to bread, meat or dairy. The search for alternative proteins has resulted in a rising use of black beans, lentils, peas, rice, nuts & seeds, chickpea, and even insects, as protein ingredients for foods.

4. Green Appeal 
The industry is increasingly committing to answering customer expectations around sustainability. This is driving corporate goals, as manufacturers commit to sustainable product and packaging development with a range of initiatives. This includes waste reduction through upcycled ingredients and post-consumer recycling, as well as improved biodegradability and new technology, such as compostable capsules and vegetable inks.

5. Snacking: the Definitive Occasion 
For most consumers, snacking is a part of daily life and always has been. What is changing, however, is the way people think about snacking and what is considered a snack. Snacking is no longer the optional extra, but the definitive occasion. It is a central focus of innovation across all food and beverage categories, with 10 percent average annual growth of global food and beverage launches with a snacking claim over the past 5 years (CAGR 2013-2017).

The other top trends identified by Innova Market Insights are:

6. Eating for Me 
7. A Fresh Look at Fiber 
8. I Feel Good 
9. Small Player Mindset 
10. Connected to the Plate 

The Top Ten Trends for 2019 will be presented by Innova Market Insights in a live webinar on November 21, 2018 at 4pm CET/10am EST. Register for the webinar by clicking here.

Travelers say technology is key to their travel experience

  [13-November-2018]  

- Travelport's 2018 Digital Traveler Survey highlights continuing demand for digital tools

- Mobile devices remain vital whilst new technologies grow in prominence

- India retains top position in this year's global digital traveler country rankings

LANGLEY, United Kingdom, Nov. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The world's travelers say mobile devices are as vital for travel as for other aspects of their life whilst the desire for new technologies, such as voice search, e-payment and digital room keys, to simplify and enhance their travel experience is increasing.

These are among results from the Travelport 2018 Global Digital Traveler Survey of 16,000 travelers from 25 countries which include:

  • Mobile remains crucial, but travelers want a consolidated experience:
    • Almost half of those surveyed have booked and paid for an entire or part of a trip through their smartphone. China is the global leader, with close to 100% of survey participants booking and paying for travel through their mobile phone
    • Nine out of ten now have apps to make their life easier when at their destination with maps, airlines, weather and social media topping the list of favorites
    • On average, travelers use 10-12 apps throughout the searching, booking and traveling parts of their trip
    • The top three most important features identified by leisure travelers in their travel apps are the ability to search & book flights (68%), real-time flight alerts throughout their journey (64%) and being able to see an entire trip itinerary in one place (67%)
    • Only around a fifth of travelers ! are curre ntly using itinerary management tools.
  • New technologies are continuing to grow in prominence:
    • Over half of travelers use voice to search either during booking or whilst traveling - up 3% on last year globally
    • In China and Turkey, over 70% of travelers are already using voice search. However, in Japan and some parts of Europe, the proportion of travelers using voice search is less than 40%
    • Almost half of all respondents, both leisure (47%) and business (55%), think the ability to pay using Apple/Android pay (Touch ID) is important or very important
    • Over half of business travelers asked said they wanted to be able to check in to their hotel via an app, rather than at a reception desk. 50% also wanted to use a digital room key to unlock their hotel room door from their phone! .
    • Travelers want technology to continue to simplify and enhance the travel experience:
      • Most travelers asked would happily use biometric scanning to reduce the need for waiting in security lines, with little difference between those traveling for business (81%) and those traveling for leisure (75%). For Nigerian travelers, with one of the youngest populations in this year's survey, 90% said they were happy to share personal data to speed through customs and immigration
      • Over two-thirds of travelers think digital boarding passes make travel so much easier

    Gordon Wilson, President and CEO of Travelport, commented, "We can all see the way technology is changing almost every aspect of our lives. The travel industry has always been about new experiences and adopted new technologies early. This is as true today, with such high demand for voice search and biometric screening, as it was whe! n I joine d this industry almost thirty years ago.

    "At Travelport, we'll always provide choice for customers and travelers, drive performance and use the intelligence in our platform to personalize and tailor your travel experience. But we're also busy innovating, inspiring and experimenting with ways to use new technologies to make buying and managing travel continually better. It's great to see confirmation that today's travelers are already as excited about future technologies as we are about making them."

    The 2018 Global Digital Traveler League Table
    The report also includes the 2018 Digital Traveler League Table, with India crowned champions for the second year in a row as the country with the most digitally-advanced travelers.  The standings are based on a combination of the main indicators of using technology to enhance the travel experience. For example, India's top position is maintained due to 69% of the country's travelers using voice search, over 60% wanting digital room keys and 88% saying they are influenced to travel by friends on social media.

    The countries are ranked as follows (*= new country surveyed in 2018):

Rising geriatric population across the globe has become one of the key factors driving demand for prosthetics and orthotics.

Geriatrics are more susceptible to conditions such as osteoporosis and osteopenia, making them common users of various orthopedic solutions.

Increasing incidence of osteosarcoma in young adults and children is also driving the market to a great extent. For instance, Children with Cancer UK, a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC), reported that osteosarcoma is the most common bone tumor in children and every year around 30 new cases in children are diagnosed in U.K. Osteosarcoma is generally treated with the help of chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation. Patients recovering from this surgery generally need orthopedic devices and prosthetics as a part of post-surgery treatment, which is slated to drive the market in the upcoming years.

Ridecell Expands Series B Equity Round and Increases Funding to Over $60M

  [13-November-2018]  

Expansion into Autonomous Ridehailing Sparks Additional Top-Tier Investor Interest

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Ridecell Inc., a leading carsharing, ridesharing and autonomous ridehailing platform for new mobility operators, announced that it has expanded its Series B equity investment round. The new investments have more than doubled the capital raised in the initial Series B roundâ€�”$28M announced in Mayâ€�”to more than $60M.

RideCell Logo

The complete Series B round is now being led by Activate Capital, and Raj Atluru, Managing Director and Co-founder of the firm, will join the company's board as the first outside director.  In addition to Activate, new Ridecell investors include Munich Re Venture's ERGO Fund, LG Technology Ventures, BNP Paribas, Sony Innovation Fund, Ally Ventures and Khosla Ventures, as well as additional investment from DENSO. These investors join Cox Automotive, Initialized Capital, DENSO, Penske, Deutsche Bahn and Mitsui who were announced in May as Series B investors.

"Investor interest in cloud-based mobility platforms and autonomous vehicles increases almost daily as the disruptive potential of these new technologies are realized," said Aarjav Trivedi, CEO of Ridecell. "At Ridecell we continue to achieve important milestones on our path to autonomous mobility, including our recent California licensing, which allows on-road operational testing of our fully autonomous Auro-equipped self-driving vehicles. The Ridecell platform now supports driver-operated and autonomous on-demand vehicle services using a single cloud-based solution."

Ridecell investors represent the most important and strategically relevant segments of the transportation industry. These include automotive electronics manufacturers, vehicle fleet managers, automotive software and hardware integrators, vehicle financers/insurers, and transportation providers. In addition, to equity investment, these partners offer Ridecell critical insight into the transportation market and strategic components of a wide-ranging mobility ecosystem.

"We are excited to announce our investment in Ridecell and to join a terrific set of strategic investors inside the company," commented Raj Atluru.  "We believe that transportation is being disrupted in fundamental ways and across multiple dimensions, all at once.  With growing global urbanization, mobility services are replacing personal car ownership and fleets will increasingly be electrified and autonomous.  Ridecell's platform connects and enables the entire ecosystem of participants required to deliver on this promise. We are investing at the very center of the new mobility revolution."  

The new funds raised will be used for the continued development of Ridecell's mobility and operations platform that supports use cases ranging from carsharing to completely autonomous ridehailing.

About Ridecell
Ridecell is on a mission to empower new mobility operators, including OEMs, car rental companies, auto clubs, cities, transit agencies, dealer groups, and private fleets to launch, expand, and maximize the utilization of their own ridesharing and carsharing services. Headquartered in San Francisco, the company provides a new mobility cloud platform for carsharing, ridesharing and autonomous ridehailing. End-to-end integration and automation accelerate time-to-market, enabling Ridecell customers to launch mobility services quickly, operate efficiently, and scale revenues as business grows. Through its acquisition of Auro, Ridecell also provides a comprehensive suite of L4 on-vehicle software, sensors and controls that enable autonomous vehicle operation.

Founded in 2009, Ridecell has already processed over 25 million rides and rentals, and has a team of more than 120 professionals in the US, Europe, Asia, and Australia.

Visiongain Report Offers Transformative Insights on $6,883mn Oil and Gas Subsea Umbilicals, Risers and Flowlines (SURF) Market

  [13-November-2018]  

LONDON, November 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

Oil and Gas Subsea Umbilicals, Risers and Flowlines (SURF) Market Report 2019-2029 

CAPEX Forecasts by Hardware (Umbilicals, Risers and Flowlines) and by Water Depth (Shallow, Deep and Ultra Deep) PLUS Regional Market Analysis with Details & Analysis of Contracts, Projects and Programmes and Profiles of Leading Companies in the SURF Market 

Visiongain has calculated that the global subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF) market will see a capital expenditure (CAPEX) of $6,883mn in 2019. Read on to discover the potential business opportunities available.

     (Logo: http://mma.prnewswire.com/media/523989/Visiongain_Logo.jpg )

The oil price fall in 2014 has changed the dynamics of the SURF market, and future oil price levels will strongly influence SURF expenditure. This is the case even for natural gas projects, as natural gas is tied to the price of oil in most regions.

CAPEX is expected to hold up in the immediate term as existing spending on under-construction projects is maintained, and projects continue to go ahead where investment has already been committed. Increased investment towards the development of fields in deeper and more remote areas along with the development of fixed and floating hubs and marginal fields are likely to boost the SURF market in the long run.

As oil and gas production enters increasingly deeper and harsher environments, the challenges for subsea engineering, installation and maintenance become even tougher. When considering that the typical lifespan of a subsea system can be as much as 20 years, with hopes to extend this considerably, the demands on SURF systems are intensified.

Visiongain's global Oil & Gas Subsea Umbilicals, Risers & Flowlines (SURF) market report can keep you informed and up to date with the developments in the market, across six different regions: North America, Western Europe, Eurasia/Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific and South America.

With reference to this report, it details the key investments trend in the global market, subdivided by regions, capital and operational expenditure and project type. Through extensive secondary research, Visiongain has identified a series of market trends that will impact the SURF market over the forecast timeframe.
