Employee Appreciation

Check your calendars and RSVP to Springbot's Employee Appreciation celebration next week! The event is happening Friday from 4-4:45 where we'll hear from SLT before breaking out into our teams for more fun! And here are three other things you should know: 1. Yeti is looking to continue its disruption. When Yeti first hit the scene, its coolers went from outdoor necessities to mainstays in every house and college dorm room in America. Now, the company is looking to make a splash in the luggage industry. Can an outdoor brand unseat Samsonite as frequent fliers’ preferred carry-on? Yeti’s trying to find out—it added new duffel bags and backpacks to its portfolio last week. Yeti’s journey: The brand’s 2006 launch line-up—luxury, vacuum-insulated coolers and tumblers—mostly catered to outdoor enthusiasts. They’ve remained core customers, but Yeti has eyed expansion for several years. In 2017, it introduced duffels targeted at both its superfans and travelers in need of tougher bags. Bags and luggage make sense for Yeti, because its customers often travel to reach their outdoorsy destinations, CEO Matt Reintjes told Fortune. Retail Brew 2. TikTok is paying out. While TikTokers were busy telling older generations their style is hideous and that Helen Keller was a fraud, TikTok was busy collecting all their personal info to sell to advertisers. Now, after facing the courts, the company is paying out $92m in settlements. The proposed settlement, described as one of the "largest privacy-related payouts in history," includes 89 million US users, some as young as six years old. According to lawyers involved in the suit, TikTok quietly collected a mountain of personally identifiable information on account holders, including biometric data such as their ethnicity, gender, and age. And even information from draft videos that were not shared publicly on the platform. Engadget 3. LinkedIn is gigging. What's the next step for a social media site doubling as a job recruiting platform? The answer, apparently, is jumping into the gig economy. The LinkedIn of gig work... might actually be LinkedIn? Microsoft-owned LinkedIn is launching a gig marketplace called "Marketplaces" (#creative), according to The Information's PFWTM. "Gig" elicits thoughts of delivery drivers, but Marketplaces is targeted to white-collar pros (like: app developers, marketers, and designers). Users will be able to book freelancers straight through LinkedIn. Marketplaces is slated to launch this fall, and is expected to replace LinkedIn's $60/month ProFinder service (a skeletal version of Marketplaces). Robinhood Snacks
