Work Life Balance: Practical Approach or Skewed Outlook this?

I was having a discussion with the newly recruited HR head of an entrepreneur-founded company. The company is non-IT services company and has 6 day working, with a 10 to 6.30 working time. Leaving half an hour of lunch, it translates into 48 working hours per week.The HR head was complaining that 48 working hours per week is too much and employees want work life balance, etc etc.Just to play devils advocate, I put forward a calculation to him saying let's look at work life balance by dividing…See More

Rahul Ramchandani replied to Omkar Sapre's discussion Standard as a brand name, is it good?
"Sometimes familiarity is what the consumer is looking for. Standard provides that perfectly... Consider the name for Hotmail branding..Outlook! Familiar to users. It works rather than recreating a new brand."

Standard as a brand name, is it good?

This ad has been making rounds of the TV since some days. The first three times I heard it in the background, I couldn't understand what it was trying to convey by saying 'sadha wire load nahi lega, lekin standard wire lega.'

It's got a meaning of its own, does not convey superiority or inferiority. In Hinglish, it has actually come to mean normal or sadha. Two…See More
