... primarily because the programs are imitable by competitors and it would not be long before offerings across various players are the same. Also with continual changes to the reward program will make customers expect constant innovation which may not make the program viable at all times. Hence the competitive advantage that they have seen in the year following the launch will be short-lived. Giving expensive rewards will also be a strain on the financials in the long run They need to focus on their service at each location. With a good reputation of having the friendliest employees, they need to focus on this aspect as eventually service is something that cannot be replicated by others. Employee rewards, recognition and improving the service experience will help gain a competitive advantage in the market and gain a significant market share ----------------------- Harrah’s Entertainment Inc.

...RADIO and all its glory Michael A DePiro Walters Introduction to the Entertainment Industry - Online Professor Kip Roddenberry 11/27/2012 One of the most common forms of media, and one of the first ever-electronic mediums, radio has come a long ways over the years. First was a simple experiment to demonstrate transmission of frequency energy. Today a way of life for millions of people everyday, in 1892 the first ever radio was in the making, but it would not be till the early 1900’s that the first ever voice over would hit the airwaves. By 1904 radio was in full swing. By the 1930’s Radio sets were in homes across the world. “IT'S difficult to imagine a time before radio. From families gathered around huge radio sets in 1930s lounge rooms, to the blast from a car radio tuned into rock stations 40 years later, the ''wireless'' has had a profound effect on our lives.” (Thom, 2007) Radio is enjoyed by millions of people everyday, it’s hard to tell which demographic works best. The best way for me to refer to Radio is in my own professional role in the industry. I currently work as the Program Director for Forever Broadcasting, the largest radio station in Pennsylvania. From my research and constant contact with Abatron it appears that more women tend to listen to the radio than men. This demographic is shown in all of our stations, and Abatron reports that the demographic of women listeners is high in most states. The typical target customer is another hard one to...

Harrah's Entertainment

...Harrah’s Entertainment Inc. February 7, 2011 The goal of introducing the Gainsharing program was to increase employee motivation so they provide outstanding customer service. The differentiating factor in regaining and keeping bigger market share was through customer satisfaction. The Gainsharing program was effective in increasing both customer satisfaction and employee loyalty. Turnover went down from 70% to 50% in one year. It also proved to be an effective motivator to the food and beverage department of Harrah’s Las Vegas. Another great feature of this program was that it wasn’t tied to the financial performance of the company and the payout would be paid regardless of operating income results. Despite its positive features, the program had some drawbacks. The objectives that needed to be achieved in order to receive the gainsharing program’s bonus were not properly fine tuned. This led to situations where teams at most properties had missed their payout just by a small margin, leading to a feeling of let down. Also, the profits were not where they should be and the economy was dragging. Most employees were thankful to have jobs let alone bonus pay outs. The feature of getting a pay out regardless of financial performance was proving to be disadvantageous to the company. The incentive plan had cost $16 million in the previous year, and that felt like an especially big number now that revenues were dropping off because of broader economic conditions...

...In-Flight Entertainment: “What is In-Flight Entertainment?” Marcel Sebastian Veit Schiffmann Pace University Janet Jones 091A Academic Writing (CRN 24297) In-Flight Entertainment: “What is In-Flight Entertainment?” Introduction This Research Paper is going to clarify the question about “What is In-Flight Entertainment?” It also reveals how “In-Flight Entertainment” was developed, and what basically is needed to be done until passengers can finally enjoy their “In-Flight Program”. Most people have never heard about the term of “In-Flight Entertainment” and have no understanding what this topic is all about. They take it for granted that they get entertained on a long distance or even short distance flight. Movies, music, applications and games are seen as natural given things on board of an airplane and most people don´t understand that there is much more behind it than just pulling their screen out of their armrest or turning the screen on, which is mounted to the backrest of their front seat. From the past till the present, when everyone has its own screen and can choose from a variety of entertainment options, it was a long way to go. Started with exhibitions of silent movies on linen by 16mm film reels at the beginning of the early 1920´s, as mankind was just about to conquer the sky and aviation was still in its infancy, up to black and white TV screens in the 1960´s, until today, with every passenger having its own LCD screen in front.

Harrahs concentrates on building customer loyalty through an optimal service, excellent products, operational excellence and technology leadership. The company decided to change its operating strategy from a more product orientated to a strategic marketing orientated company, after what products and services are based on customer data. Regarding to this the company established a bonus payout programme based on percentages improvement in customer services to maintain the motivation of its employees and lowering turnover. The objective is to implement a competitive mindset in its employees as well as to demonstrate that they are valued by the company and play an important role for the customer driven plan. The problem, which is addressed in this case is, that the created incentive plan had increased customer service metrics positively,“but not to levels that merited a payout at most properties.” The employees were told that they will receive a $200 payout regardless of the company’s operating income. However, in many properties employees did not get the incentive regardless of their hard effort, because the bonus programme was not adapted to the company’s operating income. In some properties of Harrah’s Entertainment not earn more revenue with the programme, so that they automately invalidate the value of the incentive programme...

Entertainment Influences on Culture

...Entertainments Negative Influences Jennifer Rivera 01/25/2016 HUM/186 Entertainment has shaped American culture in various ways. In my opinion it has influenced in a mostly negative way. Our culture now is more entertained by negative drama and news. For example, we are entertained by Bruce Jenner’s sudden change of gender more than we are about all the hungry kids around the world who cannot eat. We see “entertainment” such as that and allow our kids to see and idolize that kind of behavior. We see and hear what the majority of our population likes and for the most part it is all garbage. Take the music we listen too, such as, rap, hip hop, even reggaeton, which is pretty much Spanish rap. I can go on and on about the words and lyrics in most songs that are worshipped by many. In rap, hip hop, and reggae most of the lyrics discuss how they want to have relations with and disrespect many women, smoke, drink, and shoot people. This idea has become the new thing to sing about. They make it seem like if you become this type of person, you will be a “man” or idolized. Kids grow up wanting to become this way and most likely will end up in prison because of it. Kids used to grow up into church and discipline; with manners and respect. Now that all of that has been banned from schools, we don’t know as much as we used to. All we know as a culture is our electronics and the entertainment our world now has for us. Even our video games now have very bad messages for kids...
