SEATTLE - August 9, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Almas Insight, a company that provides data-driven solutions for organizations to measure needed human skills in the job market, today announces the addition of Michael Griffiths as an advisor. Griffiths is a principal at Deloitte Consulting LLP with Deloitte's Workforce Development practice in North America. With this addition, Almas will be able to leverage Griffiths' deep experience and industry understanding of how organizations hire more strategically, reorganize more efficiently and compete more effectively with objective, data-driven employee insight.

Griffiths brings more than 20 years of experience in leading key programs for market-leading clients, with work across industries — ranging from mergers and acquisitions, leadership development, and workforce transformations for leading firms. He is a thought leader across workforce transformation and has won industry recognition including both the Brandon Hall and Chief Learning Officer awards. Prior to Deloitte, Griffiths was the Global Strategy Lead for Learning Solutions at Accenture. Griffiths' experience helping global organizations transform and adapt their talent strategies to new market conditions by utilizing cutting-edge technology is virtually unparalleled.

At Deloitte, an organization with differentiated services and solutions in learning, leadership development, knowledge management, and skills-based transformations, Griffiths works with global clients to build high-performance businesses that drive growth and optimization through talent and learning. He is also the lead for Deloitte's "Human Capital Trends" for 2022. All of this experience combined makes him a welcomed advisor to Almas, a company centered on utilizing human capital data to better manage and develop organizational workforces. 

Almas Insight offers a cutting-edge, immersive, game-based product that combines contextual video, situational simulation, and cognitive tests to measure more than a dozen high-demand human skills fast. The company was formed to bring this decade of research to businesses and was promptly funded by Learn Capital — the world's largest human development venture fund. Through research conducted by the University of Washington, Almas demonstrated with a nationally representative sample that users broadly prefer this measurement method. More importantly, it helps to reduce socioeconomic biases inherent in our current employment system and has seen validity exceeding all other methods tested. 

"Adding a human capital leader like Michael Griffiths to our advisory board is a clear next step for our work at Almas and will accelerate our ability to help global organizations," said Rob Savette, co-founder of Almas Insight. "We have an outstanding technology solution that can help employees while simultaneously saving organizations significant amounts of capital. As organizations face the extraordinary talent challenges presented by the current economic climate, our complete focus will be on getting our solution into the hands of as many human capital and executive leaders as quickly as possible."

"Most organizations are facing critical new workforce challenges the last few years. These new challenges require new workforce solutions," said Griffiths. "Human skill measurement is one of the key trends I see as necessary in this market transformation. Workplace research has shown this is a critical component to hiring, success, development, and, critically, tenure for employees."

FentCheck Founders Named Fast Company’s ‘Most Creative People in Business 2022’ for Fentanyl Overdose Harm Reduction

The renowned business magazine Fast Company honors a small group of entrepreneurs for their innovation and global impact annually

OAKLAND, Calif. - August 9, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Fast Company today announced its 14th annual list of the Most Creative People in Business, recognizing FentCheck founders Alison Heller and Dean Shold for their impact on reducing accidental fentanyl overdoses in the United States.

Each year, Fast Company honors individuals making a cultural impact via bold achievements that have never been accomplished before in their chosen fields. These influential and diverse engineers, executives, filmmakers, activists, designers, research scientists, and founders, among others, are leading with creativity during one of the most challenging times in history.

"We're honored that Fast Company has chosen to recognize FentCheck's innovative work in harm reduction," said FentCheck co-founder Alison Heller. "FentCheck takes a compassionate and creative approach, inspired by the AIDS activists who put condoms in bathrooms at bars and clubs in the 80s. The abstinence-only approach never worked for sex, and it doesn't work for substance use. Our mission is to get fentanyl test strips and other life-saving resources into as many venues as possible, and this award will help us reach more people." 

"There are a lot of misconceptions about people who use drugs," said FentCheck co-founder Dean Shold. "But at the end of the day, they come from all types of backgrounds. They're cooks, bankers, servers, doctors, students, office workers, first responders, you name it. Fentanyl doesn't give people second chances, but FentCheck does. Our goal is to destigmatize the resources that are saving lives and make them accessible." 

Since its founding in 2019, FentCheck has distributed over 1,500 fentanyl test strips every week to over 50 venues in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, New York, Portland, and Reno. In addition to this important work, FentCheck makes Narcan and Narcan training available to staff at venues around the U.S., and frequently works with legislators to advocate for statewide legislation supporting harm reduction, thus reducing fentanyl overdose deaths in their congressional districts. FentCheck is also a partner of the harm reduction program at the University of California, Berkeley. 

About FentCheck

FentCheck's mission is to decrease the overwhelming number of accidental fentanyl overdoses by providing life-saving resources like Fentanyl Test Strips and Narcan within the community. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. FentCheck can be found online at www.FentCheck.org

SINGAPORE - August 8, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Neeyamo is delighted to announce the second season of Working Beyond Borders with a spotlight on the impact of Employer of Record (EOR) on the future of work. This follows the successful completion of season 1 of Working Beyond Borders with its fifth and final pitstop in Singapore on Aug. 4. 

Working Beyond Borders is an invite-only event designed to promote networking and collaboration among the brightest minds in the HR, global payroll, and the EOR industry. WBB season 1 was hosted across London, Milan, Manila, and Buenos Aires before the Singapore pitstop to ignite discussions about managing a global workforce and to provide in-depth insights into the rapidly changing payroll landscape.

Businesses today are undergoing a transformational shift. Global expansion is a common thread among successful organizations. However, handling payroll for a global workforce presents unforeseen challenges. With their legacy technologies and processes, organizations often struggle to cope with daily demands.

The Singapore pitstop addressed these unforeseen challenges, including a session on "Key global trends impacting payroll and HR that transform the modern-day workplace" that sparked enthusiastic conversations. Of interest were topics on the desire for a more diverse workforce, the introduction of next-gen technology in global payroll, and the demand for a cloud-based payroll solution that led to a shift in HR professionals' working habits and skillsets. 

Rangarajan Seshadri, CEO, Neeyamo, said, "Standardization in HR processes and payroll is often a challenge for many businesses due to varying compliance requirements and the lack of an integrated tech ecosystem. Neeyamo believes that through season 1 of Working Beyond Borders, we created an opportunity for companies to learn, unlearn and re-learn the future of HR and global payroll. With the focus on EOR in season 2, the emphasis will be on helping companies access talent globally and navigate the future of work."

NEW YORK - August 8, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

In his newly released single called ACORNS, Peter Lake attempts to give a voice to the sign of the times. Without forcing a judgment on a range of topics from the stock market to fossil fuels, Lake summarizes the range of topics that seem to define the times, and which he feels should be cataloged for our "collective memory." Lake suggests that history is often forgotten, but music can be a special tool that helps us remember. Mr. Lake's decision to release the song, merely weeks after two successive singles, reflects his desire to write about contemporary issues as they are happening, a practice he urges other musicians to follow.

Says Lake:

"ACORNS is all about how times change, and how this is neither good nor bad, but just the way of the world. I hear about recession and everything getting expensive. I don't know if these things are true or lasting. I don't even really know what recession means! But there is a vibe that things aren't going well, and we need to get ready for something, and the song tries to get at the new vibe."

Lake goes on, explaining celebrity culture has made music a means of becoming famous. Lake notes that a hundred years ago, it would be "crazy" to go into music for money. "I think music should return to what it was originally, songs that are stories and songs that are about history, current events and the human condition. And most importantly, songs that could be sung in communities and that stand apart from whoever wrote them."

ACORNS is now available globally wherever music is streamed. To learn more about the music of Peter Lake, please visit his social media. @peterlakemusic

Artist Biography:

Peter Lake is a Canadian-born, New York City-based singer-songwriter who revels in anonymity. In an age where privacy is rare, Peter is convinced that his ability to create music is protected by his anonymity, and by working with unconventional partners in an attempt to avoid the constraints of traditional record deals, which often consider recorded music as a means to promote tours.

Peter is the first of a kind: an artist who will only do live concerts via a web-based platform, thereby freeing him to focus exclusively on writing and recording new, original music that crosses all genres. In the process, Peter has assembled one of the largest singer-songwriter catalogs in the industry. His musical influences include Neil Young, Max Martin, David Bowie, Motown, and Drake.

It's no surprise that his songs are hard to place, often flying between (and combining) House beats, crunchy guitar riffs and "traditional chants and natural sounds."

From what we learned in our conversations with the artist, humility does not come naturally. On the other hand, it's hard to consider his views as arrogant, given the intense sincerity with which he describes his plans. When asked about his goal, he replied as follows:

"My goal is to wake up every day and make music, and one day through that process, write and perform what will later be seen as the greatest song in history, a song that will define humankind for centuries."
