Why do you think resign rate of cabin crew in M.E is higher than anywhere else?
That's a common issue in Middle East that resign rate of cabin crews are so high compare to those of the rest of the world although there's competitive exclusive benefits that are better than other regions.
Can anybody give the idea why and where to find the sources(acedamic websites or books) that proof the fact?
Does anybody know the sources or books to cite about statistics and datas on this issue?
I need to do research on this topic for my class.
Please help discuss.. even you have non-reliable sources.
I would hazard a guess it's mostly to do with the transient international population that make up the bulk of the Middle Eastern airlines' cabin crew workforces.
The job is fine for most for one to five years- longer than that, up comes the question on do they want to be in their home country, with their family and settle there, or move on to another opportunity elsewhere.
Also, most of the countries that employ foreign crew don't overly encourage one to have a lifeling career and retire there- most would likely want to return home & establish a solid base & life (with employment) before thinking about retirement (unless they managed to save a LOT of money by working overseas)
Agree with the above, also like a lot of things .... they are expanding and recruiting and have jobs, unlike a lot of the west. Once you have experience and when other jobs become available you hot foot it back to civilisation.
I suspect most of them come here to escape the home life for a bit, do some travelling, see the world, then time to go home and pursue their normal life...nothing against the carriers here...they seem to expect and accept it..
Actually it has been researched to death but not with reference to specific cabin crew issues. You need to look for papers about the psychology of migrant workers (because that is all they/we are) and the factors that make them take and leave jobs abroad. Then you need to talk to crew- post something on the cabin crew forum on PPRuNe and set up an online survey (surveymonkey or something similar). Think outside the box a bit.
Because after being lebanized, having partied at Zinc and having spent 75% of thier salaries on Paris Hilton style sunglasses the majjority after a couple of years realizes that real life has nothing to with that or with the UAE or Qatar as a very concept.... Nevertheless some come form such desperate countries or situations that they cannot go back. By the way just tell me what would they be such incredible benefits ? No union.. no pensions.. no maternity leave what the **** are you talking about??
Well, for a single 21yr old, male or female, starting on over $2000 per month, tax free, no bills to pay, no rent and no requirement for a car, I'd say that's good reason enough.
Factor in 4-5 star hotels, an opportunity to see quite a bit of the World over 3 years or so and have on your CV that you worked for a reputable airline, the argument for doing the job is even stronger. You don't even need the justification of coming from one of your 'desperate' Countries to come here. In case you have not been watching the news for the last... oh, say 4 years or so, the World is a mess. All of it. And jobs are bloody hard to come by. You claim others not to be living in the real World?
Well, you may be surprised that the rate of people leaving is far smaller than we often hear about. Just like all the pilots that are leaving..... not!
For a Company as big as EK, with a known short to medium term job as cabin crew, the resignation rate is well within what's planned.
To me it makes perfect sense for a young single person to do the job for a few years, especially given their likely disposable income. Whether you'd want to make a long term career of it is a different matter altogether.
