Whether you’re a new direct-to-consumer brand looking to make your mark or an established e-commerce business with robust sales, today’s competitive climate requires companies to look outside the box to new channels to drive revenue and attract new customers. With the current pandemic taking hold and effectively crippling retail brick-and-mortar distribution, the need to develop an online, multichannel strategy has never been more important.

Your tech is watching you.

Jackie Ferrentino for NPR

Schedule super quick meetings just to check in with colleagues. Read more. And try to fit “moments of transition” into your daily schedule.

Those are some tips from Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella to help manage well-being with the new WFH lifestyle.

Nadella spoke this week at the Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council. He said he’s focused on three major considerations of how the nature is work is changing amid the pandemic: how collaboration happens, how learning happens inside companies, and how to ensure employees aren’t burning out.
