This includes a growing demand for aircraft for both passenger and freight usage; continued success by the aircraft OEMs in delivering a record number of new aircraft to customers; and ongoing low interest rates that will keep the cost of leasing down for airlines big and small.

How can you create an engaging culture at work? This million (or actually multi-billion) dollar question is constantly being asked and revisited by companies globally, large and small. Building an engaging culture is crucial to a company’s sustained success: Gallup estimates that disengaged workforces are costing companies over $450 billion in lost productivity per year and 95% of employees say that culture is more important than compensation.

He concluded that corporate wellness programs not only provide low returns on investment but actually backfire, making many employees less healthy and more anxious about their jobs.
