Going Home by Kenny G, Sax to Clear Malls, Schools & Gyms in China!

Writing about web page

Kenny G, Saxaphone playerKenny G’s soprano saxophone tune ‘Going Home’ is being played in a loop for the last half hour to 90 minutes in shopping centres, schools, markets, gyms and workplaces across China.

No-one knows when this started but all over China this mellow sax tune now means ‘go home’.

Some workers in a finance company noted that when the tune started in their workplace there is almost a Pavlovian response to work faster. Perhaps our Masterchef watching workers might respond to messages like “thirty minutes to go”?

Some employers might be wary of the going home message when they are getting all the extra hours that we habitually work in the UK. However, our productivity levels are still way behind Germany where they go home and have a life.
