Open Forum on Retirement for CX Cabin Crew
PCCCLtd decided to give back to its generous members by teaming up with Enrich Hong Kong Charity group to equip them with the basic financial know how necessary to deal with retirement. The 4-hour open forum was held on June 2, 2016, at the Coastal Skyline Club House in Tung Chung, New Territories, Hong Kong. Approximately 20 members were able to attend the forum, with flying duties and home travel preventing other interested members from attending.
Enrich is the leading Hong Kong charity promoting the economic empowerment of migrant domestic workers through educating them with the tools to save, budget, and plan for greater financial security. Established in 2007, they have had over 7,000 participants in over 390 workshops, impacting 28,000 family members in their home countries.
Raul Benjamin Puentespina, Head of Financial Education, engaged PCCCI members on the financial ramifications of retirement, giving them pointers to look out for and strategies to deal with these. His wife, Judi Puentespina, a senior instructor at the Inflight Service Training and Development Center of Cathay Pacific, and herself a cabin crew, took care of the softer side of retirement, dealing with the emotional issues arising from leaving a lifelong career.
It was certainly a productive time for the PCCCI members, many of whom are facing retirement in the next couple of years. They came away with a renewed commitment to live life to the fullest, with an eye to the future, giving service straight from the heart as they flew, and paying forward as they continued to enjoy the benefits of flying for one of the world's great airlines.
