Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi and Lyft cofounders Logan Green and John Zimmer have written an op-ed in which they maintain that flexible employment is essential for their drivers.The argument follows the passage of a bill in California's state Assembly that could, if passed by the state Senate and signed into law, reclassify ride-hailing drivers as employees rather than independent contractors.Uber and Lyft can't afford a unionized workforce and argue that employment law should be changed, and that drivers should form an association in partnership with Uber and Lyft.Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.Uber and Lyft are the dominant players in the ride-hailing business, but ever since their disappointing IPOs earlier this year, investors have been taking a much closer look at the incipient industry that both companies hope to carve up.Uber shares have returned to their offering level, but Lyft is down over 20%.

Many companies are turning to content marketing to reach potential job candidates – as well as to engage and support their existing workforce.Reports like ManpowerGroup’s Millennial Careers: Vision 2020 say the younger generation also looks for signs that an employer will recognize their skills and contributions, support their need for creativity and flexibility, and that the total job experience will reflect their values and priorities.In short, they aren’t just looking to make a living, they’re looking for job opportunities that fit their lifestyle – in and out of the office.And what better way for companies to show off their workplace advantages than by sharing engaging content that highlights their companies in creative, unique, and compelling ways?By doing that, some enterprising brands have managed to draw increased attention – and a talented field of qualified job applicants.Likewise, prospective employees often take to their favorite social sites to research the companies they are considering in their careers, to get a clearer view of each organization’s workplace values and vision, as well as to gain a deeper sense of its less-publicized qualities – like what it’s really like to work there day to day.

The technology was recently used by a spy to create a fake profile photo on LinkedIn to attract would-be targets, the Associated Press reported Thursday.The photo appeared on the LinkedIn account for a Katie Jones, a 30-something redhead.Among her 52 connections were links to Washington political figures, including a deputy assistant secretary of state, a senior aide to a senator and a prominent economist being considered for the Federal Reserve, according to the Associated Press.The news outlet found that despite her claims of working for years as a "Russia and Eurasia fellow" at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, the DC-based think tank had no record of her employment.Similarly, the University of Michigan could find no record of her claimed degree in Russian studies.According to the AP, Jones is part of "a vast army of phantom profiles" hiding on the professional job networking site.
In today’s fast-paced world, it’s rare that people stay at companies for years on end.A report by LinkedIn found that marketing roles had a turnover rate of 17% compared to the global turnover average of about 11% (as defined by a percentage of LinkedIn professionals who indicated they left a company in 2017).Marketers focus heavily on creating an enjoyable and engaging experience for consumers; for companies, the same method can be deployed to increase employee happiness.One way to drive personalized experiences in the workplace is by offering employees a flexible work environment—whether that be flexible scheduling, the ability to telecommute or unlimited PTO—to accommodate different working styles.For example, having a meditation area or pet-friendly environment can be beneficial for boosting employee morale while also providing a much needed break in the day.When tailoring the program per individuals, an employee in a management role may find it useful to partake in a management training course, whereas an individual in a junior role might find it beneficial to hone their knowledge and values through outside activities like networking events.

Employees within Facebook have dug up “emails that appear to connect Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg to potentially problematic privacy practices” in the course of responding to a Federal Trade Commission investigation, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday, citing “people familiar with the matter.”The Journal was not able to review the emails directly, but wrote they could complicate efforts at Facebook to quickly reach a settlement with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) over alleged violations of a 2012 agreement known as a consent decree.That agreement resolved charges that Facebook “deceived consumers by telling them they could keep their information on Facebook private, and then repeatedly allowing it to be shared and made public,” according to the FTC.To avoid penalties, the agency required the company agree to obtain “express consent before sharing [users’] information beyond their privacy settings” as well as implement a “comprehensive privacy program to protect consumers’ information.”At least one of the email chains from April 2012 (after the decree was announced but before it went into effect) appears to show Facebook and Zuckerberg “grappling” with what type of practices it should permit under the order, namely a third party service that claimed to be offering access to user profiles no matter what privacy settings they had enabled.In one email exchange from April 2012 that has caught regulators’ attention, according to a person familiar with the matter, Mr. Zuckerberg asked employees about an app that claimed to have built a database stocked with information about tens of millions of Facebook users.
Office 365 to demonstrate legendary ability to not fall over when pushed to the front lineLucky London plod have been gently nudged down the Microsoft 365 staircase with the cloudy platform rolled out to Metropolitan Police employees.In news that will leave criminals positively paralysed with fear, Microsoft and the Metropolitan Police Service have buddied up to tackle London crime.By "buddied up" we mean that one has spanked some serious cash on licences from the other.A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police Service told The Register that, in total, 61,000 mailboxes were migrated as part of the rollout under a national contract for policing.Microsoft also boasted that 45,000 lucky users had been migrated to Office 365.
The developer of the popular League of Legends game has been facing down allegations and lawsuits over what’s reportedly a toxic workplace culture, culminating in a mass walkout when the company tried to force two women into arbitration instead of having their day in court.But it now appears that the State of California has been quietly investigating the game developer as well — and that Riot hasn’t been playing ball.The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing just announced (via Kotaku) that it’s attempting to legally force Riot to cough up employee pay data so it can see whether Riot is paying women less than men, because Riot has refused to provide that data voluntarily.The surprising part, of course, is that we had no idea Riot was under officially under investigation until now.In total, the agency says it’s investigating “alleged unequal pay, sexual harassment, sexual assault, retaliation, and gender discrimination in selection and promotion.”“DFEH has broad authority to investigate potential violations of California’s civil rights laws similar to grand jury proceedings,” reads part of a statement from DFEH director Kevin Kish.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai reportedly sent an email to LGBTQ employees saying the company would be taking a "hard look" at its harassment policies and work more closely with internal LGBTQ groups.The email comes one week after YouTube's controversial decision not to remove videos of conservative commentator Steven Crowder that contained homophobic slurs aimed at Vox journalist, Carlos Maza."With respect to YouTube, Susan and the team are already taking a hard look at the harassment policies and will do this in consultation with many groups, including people who have themselves experienced harassment," Pichai wrote.Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.One week after YouTube's controversial decision not to remove videos that contained homophobic slurs, Google CEO Sundar Pichai reportedly sent an email to LGBTQ employees saying the company was taking a "hard look" at its harassment policies and would work more closely with internal LGBTQ groups."With respect to YouTube, Susan and the team are already taking a hard look at the harassment policies and will do this in consultation with many groups, including people who have themselves experienced harassment," Pichai said in the emai obtained by the Verge.
In an internal email shared with The Verge, Google CEO Sundar Pichai said that YouTube is taking a “hard look” at its harassment policies and will consult “many groups, including people who have themselves experienced harassment,” as well as Google employee resource groups.During a meeting on Tuesday, Pichai, YouTube product and design SVP Neal Mohan, trust and safety VP Kristie Canegallo, and chief diversity officer and head of employee engagement Melonie Parker met with representatives from the company’s LGBTQ groups.Topics discussed included what one employee called “the pattern of crises” related to the LGBTQ community and a need for earlier internal engagement with LGBTQ groups on policy decisions.At Code Conference the previous day, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki apologized to the LGBTQ community following widespread backlash to the company’s recent policy decisions regarding conservative pundit Steven Crowder’s channel.“I’m really, personally very sorry,” Wojcicki said.Even though it was a hard decision, it was harder that it came from us — because it was such an important home.”
FlyCleaners, a New York startup offering on-demand laundry pickup and delivery, has laid off “a large number” of its employees, co-founder and CEO David Salama told TechCrunch.This confirms a story earlier this week in Crain’s New York reporting that FlyCleaners filed a notification with the Department of Labor outlining plans to close its Long Island City plant and lay off 116 employees.As Salama explained when we profiled him several years ago, FlyCleaners customers can use the mobile app whenever they want someone to pick up their laundry — the startup handles pickup and return, while the actual cleaning is handled by local businesses.In an email about the layoffs, Salama told me that the company (which raised a $2 million round led by Zelkova Ventures back in 2013) created its own team for pickup and delivery because “when we started FlyCleaners six years ago, the last-mile logistics industry was simply not where we needed it to be in order to effectively service our customers.” More recently, however, the company has been testing partnerships with other logistics companies as a way to “supplement” its own team.“Recently, it became clear to us that the cost of our internal team was just too large to bear and it was starting to hamper our ability to execute strategically and to sustain and grow our business,” Salama continued.“And so, that [led] to the painful decision to lay off a large number of employees and to proceed as a more asset-light organization.”
