We have experienced a lot of change throughout the course of the pandemic that has required us to reconsider our priorities and become nimble in the way we work and how we reach out to our clients. Many were skeptical that these changes would lead to similar productivity. However, as we prioritize our health during the pandemic, working from home has become important, and many (24%, according to CNBC) have adapted so well that they want to keep doing it.

When we first started working from home, the primary concern for many was to set up an office, retain camaraderie, and continue meeting with clients. During the spring, as I watched as annual springtime conferences got canceled or sent to an online format, I keenly felt the void previously filled by those intense social interactions. It seemed that with a bit of luck, the shutdowns would pass and we would return to our normal activity. But as the pandemic stretched into the summer and many lost their jobs due to the pandemic, it dawned on all of us that we are approaching a different way of working that will likely have lasting impacts.

Before the pandemic, workers appreciated but likely undervalued their employer-sponsored health benefits. In response to the novel coronavirus pandemic, many health insurance companies quickly adjusted their benefits packages to ensure coverage for Covid-19 testing and more. So with general health and fear of illness weighing heavily on our minds, health insurance during a pandemic has become a vital benefit. And in a recent survey from my company, 64% of respondents rated their health insurance coverage as “excellent” or “good.”

The economic slowdown to curb the virus could cause approximately 27 million Americans to lose employer-sponsored health insurance during

Bed Bath & Beyond Inc.

is looking at fewer stores stocked with less stuff as a way to limit the amount of cash trapped in its operations.

The Union, N.J.-based company, which is known for stacking its home goods to the ceiling, is in the process of reducing the number of stores, bringing down its inventory and building out its distribution channels. Bed Bath & Beyond wants to close 63 stores by the end of its fiscal year in February 2021, for a total of 200 over the course of the next two years.

The home-goods retailer has been struggling with falling sales for years and had to temporarily close about 90% of its stores in the early days of the pandemic. Its stores have since reopened, and digital sales are up 89% in the three months ended Aug. 29. Still, revenue in its fiscal second quarter fell to $2.69 billion from $2.72 billion in the prior-year period, Bed Bath Beyond said earlier this month.

Chief Financial Officer Gustavo Arnal, who joined the company in May, is playing a key role in accelerating the retail chain’s transformation and freeing up cash for the business. “The way to get cash flow is working capital optimization,” Mr. Arnal said.

Bed Bath & Beyond’s working capital increased by nearly 10% to $1.24 billion in the year to the end of August, compared with the prior year period, according to CreditRiskMonitor, a provider of commercial credit reports.

The company has been trying to reduce its inventory levels for years, following a peak of $2.9 billion in fiscal 2016, but analysts said it still has room to go. Its fiscal 2019 inventory at $2.1 billion

LONDON — When the coronavirus pandemic closed workplaces earlier this year, businesses effectively went from having one or more locations to having as many offices as they did employees, as staff worked from home.

For software company Splunk, this effectively meant going from 35 offices to more than 6,000 “overnight,” according to the firm’s Chief Technical Adviser James Hodge. Having so many people working at home has meant a more trusting style of leadership is necessary, Hodge told CNBC’s “Squawk Box Europe” on Monday.

“The first few months (of the pandemic) were incredibly challenging, I think a lot of us ended up working incredibly long hours. If I just take Splunk as an example, we’ve spent a long time communicating with our employees, understanding what the impact’s like,” Hodge described.

“There’s been some brilliant parts about it to give people flexibility, but … on the other side, we do need to be completely aware of where the additional pressures are going,” he added.

While some governments have encouraged office-based employees to go back to their workplaces, many are still working from home. Splunk is training managers to understand employees’ wellbeing and other needs, Hodge said, and has put in place measures such as prohibiting video calls on Friday afternoons.

“The real big key about it is trust. We went from 35 office locations to over 6,000 office locations overnight. People are our greatest asset and we’ve got to put the trust in them to be able to go and flex their work around and understand their needs and just adapt,” Hodge said.

Having people work from home also means businesses will be able to recruit from a wider talent pool, Hodge added.

A women-run company led by investing titan Sallie Krawcheck, known as “the most powerful woman on Wall Street,” is taking on the ambitious role of narrowing the gender wealth gap.

“There have been two big drivers of wealth in our country: one of which has been real estate, which people of color have been redlined out of, the other of which has been investing,” Krawcheck told CBS News’ Michelle Miller. “And women and people of color have been kept out from that.”

The gender wage gap between men and women in the U.S. has been the subject of debate and countless campaigns for equality, and that wage gap is even steeper for women of color. That wage gap, coupled with women taking more time out of their careers to care for children and investing less than men, means that even women who successfully saved for retirement could find themselves with as much as $1 million less in assets than their male counterparts. 

“Women make 82 cents to a man’s dollar. It’s slowly getting better, but to be frank — it’s decades away from closing for White women, 100 plus years for Black women, and 200 plus years for Latinx women,” Krawcheck explained. 

The disparity then leads to a long term gender wealth gap, or “how much money we keep” versus how much is earned.

“That gender wealth gap is 32 cents for a man’s dollar, and just a single digit number of pennies for Black women,” she said. 

And unlike the wage gap, Krawcheck said the wealth gap is “moving in the wrong direction” and will take more than bigger paychecks to close. 

She realized it would take more than larger paychecks to close the widening gap — so in 2014, Krawcheck founded Ellevest, a digital investment platform designed
