Getting Employee to Return to the Office:

If there is one thing that the pandemic has taught us, it is that the digital age has finally caught up with the way we work, and there is no going back. It is important to remember that working remotely is not anything new. It existed for decades prior to the pandemic, so employees already knew it was possible to remain productive and engaged working remotely. All the pandemic did is to reveal to all those who were once doubtful and resistant to such a drastic change to the work environment, that in fact, it is an environment that is not only effective but also long overdue.

What Zaki Tamir can say in an interview about
The Elon Musk / Twitter Deal:

We should be concerned about what Elon Musk is going to do with Twitter and we should certainly be watching very carefully.
  • The federal lawsuit against Musk brought by Twitter investors essentially claims that Musk intentionally and unlawfully hid the fact that he was actively purchasing an increased amount of Twitter stock (more than 72 million shares to date) in order to mislead other investors about how much the stock was really worth. If Musk had disclosed that he purchased more than 9% of Twitter over the span of a few months, as he was legally required to do, the stock would have shot up in value because of the demand, and the “average Joe” investor could have made a pretty penny on the increased value that came as a result of the demand. When it was later discovered that Musk owns 9.1% of Twitter and intends to buy the company the stock shot up as expected by 27%.

What Chris Janeway can say in an interview about
Financial Literacy:

* Financial Literacy Gaps at Home & School. There’s a combination of multiple issues in the marketplace for financial literacy. First and foremost, most adults aren’t taught any form of financial literacy through either their schools or their parents at home when they were younger. As we get older it becomes harder and harder to not only understand and admit our own lack of knowledge, but we also struggle to know where to find reputable information. Along with that, we run into an issue of competing priorities. As we age we’re in the midst of our careers, raising families, and all of the busyness that life can bring. Taking the extra time to increase our financial knowledge often goes to the bottom of the pile.
