Whistleblowing soars 31% to record with Americans working from home

By Matt Robinson and Ben Bain | Bloomberg The work-from-home phenomenon has triggered a fresh frustration for U.S. corporations: Americans are blowing the whistle on their employers like never before.

Officials at the agency, which pays whistle-blowers for information that leads to s...

During the pandemic, older people in Portugal avoided consuming "high-contact" goods and services.

Sharing of tacit knowledge is most important aspect of mentorship, study finds

In one of the largest ever multidisciplinary investigations into mentorship and mentee performance, the Kellogg School of Management researchers found that the most impactful mentors are those who teach students to think independently and communicate their unique viewpoints effectively.

We'll never see another $100 billion technology Vision Fund — from SoftBank or anyone else (UBER)

SoftBank's Vision Fund may be the first — and last — $100 billion investment vehicle. SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son planned for it to be the first of a succession of gigantic funds, but it performance to date has been poor; it lost $10 billion in value in the March quarter of this year alone and is now worth less than what backers invested in it. The fund's poor performance has highlighted the flaws inherent in trying to invest $100 billion in startup companies in little more than three years. No...

Airbnb is facing an unprecedented threat from the coronavirus. Here are the veteran execs on Airbnb's board of directors who will be critical to CEO Brian Chesky's success or failure.

Airbnb is facing a big challenge thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, which has led to a deep decline in the travel industry.

DoorDash's food deliveries earned it a $13 billion valuation, but experts say its IPO plans amid market turmoil and a virus outbreak are a recipe for disaster (GRUB)

DoorDash, which this week confidentially filed its public-offering paperwork, could face a poor reception from Wall Street, business experts told Business Insider. Many of the other jumbo-sized, money losing startups like DoorDash that have gone public recently have seen their stocks perform poorly, and WeWork wasn't even able to complete its IPO, they noted. Door Dash's chief public competitors are struggling with losses and its closest analog, GrubHub, has a market capitalization that's abou...

Here's why business experts think Uber's 'profitability' pledge is misleading and meaningless (UBER)

Uber excited investors and analysts last week when it predicted it would hit "profitability" by the end of this year. But the company's definition of "profitability" doesn't accord with standard accounting and leaves out a whole mess of expenses. The company's preferred profitability measure — adjusted EBITDA — is problematic, because while it is improving, its outflow of actual cash is actually worsening. It wouldn't be a surprise if the company hits its "profitability" target, business exper...

Here's why Casper's disappointing IPO could spell disaster for other unicorns (CSPR)

Casper's IPO could spell bad news for other startups looking to go public this year. The company went public at a market capitalization that was less than half the $1.1 billion valuation venture investors gave it a year ago, and it raised far less money than it initial expected. Casper was likely hurt by the fact that it's losing substantial amounts of money and that it tried to portray itself as a tech firm when it really wasn't one, business experts told Business Insider. Startups that are l...

Buzzy mattress maker Casper is pitching itself as a tech company, just like WeWork did. Here why business experts are dubious. (AAPL, FIT)

Online mattress company Casper tried to pitch itself as a tech company in its recently filed initial public offering paperwork. Private investors have given it a tech-like premium, valuing it at $1.1 billion. Public investors may well have a different take on the company, especially since it acknowledged in its IPO document that a "significant" portion of its business still comes from selling mattresses. While it believes that technology products will spur its future growth, thus far, it only ...

4 Ways to Deliver Genuine Authenticity

Instagram “broke us” says a recent Vox article. The social networking service has warped our “perception of reality over the past almost-decade,” motivating people to “perform” a lifestyle while simultaneously convincing those watching that the performance is real. I’m convinced “celebrity CEOs” have done the same thing to people’s perceptions of leadership. Instagram and many celebrity CEOs showcase style over substance. People eat it up—and believe it, accepting calculated authenticity as an a...

WSJ: Reasons Retirees Should Consider a Reverse Mortgage

Retirees should strongly consider employing a reverse mortgage loan to help fund their retirements, primarily because they can serve to protect against two major problems: falling home prices, and the increasing likelihood that a senior will outlive his or her assets. This is according to Professor Benjamin Harris, executive director of the Kellogg Public-Private Interface at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management, in a column at the Wall Street Journal. While consumers hav...

Brookings: Reverse Mortgages Should be More than a Niche Product

Reverse mortgage products, while unlikely to become “a pillar” of American retirement, are economically justified “to play an expanded role in helping older Americans achieve a secure livelihood.” This is according to a new research paper released by the Brookings Institution, authored by researchers Martin Baily, Benjamin Harris and Ting Wang. The paper, released last week along with two additional papers during a reverse mortgage event hosted by Brookings, serves as a framing device to give...
