"#PJPants4Ever: Twitter Says Employees Can Work From Home Permanently"

From Daily Voice:

* Twitter is “uniquely positioned to…allow folks to work from home given our emphasis on decentralization and supporting a distributed workforce capable of working from anywhere,” Christie wrote. “The past few months have proven we can make that work.”



"The Push to Digitize Insurance Amid COVID-19"

From Think Advisor:

* For years, the insurance industry has lagged behind other industries when it comes to digital transformation. In 2015 McKinsey ranked healthcare near the bottom in their McKinsey Industry Digitization Index; since then, the industry has begun spending more on digital innovation, but there is still a long way to go for many healthcare entities.

* The COVID-19 crisis is rapidly highlighting whether industry stakeholders were prepared to digitize — or not.  Companies who had already embraced a culture of digital innovation and had begun exploring, if not implementing, technology are much more likely to successfully navigate the sudden and dramatic shift in the way we do business.



"From Transition To Recovery: How To Plan Ahead In Times Of Uncertainty"

From Forbes:

* In leading my businesses 23 years and coaching other leaders, I’ve realized that unexpected crises can and do happen to everyone. It’s not a matter of “if” but “when” it will occur. Getting through the immediate shock is only the first hurdle. It’s the aftermath of transition and recovery that is the true test of our ability to triumph.

"Impossible Foods, Beyond Meat see spike in demand as coronavirus wreaks havoc on meat supply"

From Market Watch:

* “We have not seen any interruption in our supply chain,” Lee told MarketWatch. “While 95% of our consumers are meat eaters, the way we make our product is incredibly different. The meat industry has to grow an animal, transport it, slaughter it, process it, and turn it into the meat it serves. We bypass the animal, we go straight to the plants. We have a vastly different way to make our product that is far more efficient for us and far better for the planet.”

* “The food supply chain is breaking,” company chairman John Tyson said in a blog post on the company’s website April 26, warning of an upcoming shortage in steak and pork. “Millions of pounds of meat will disappear” as plants close, he added. This month, the company has shuttered a meat processing plant in Pasco, Wash., that produces enough beef in one day to feed 4 million people; two of its largest facilities in Iowa and Indiana; and a chicken processing plant in Tennessee because of COVID-19 outbreaks.



"Elon Musk Defies California County Order to Reopen Car Plant"

From TownHall:

* Musk explained that while California officials said Tesla could operate, an “unelected county official illegally overrode” that decision. 

“All other auto companies in US are approved to resume. Only Tesla has been singled out,” he added. “This is super messed up!”
