Shareholder Confronts Salesforce CEO’s, Directors’ Hypocrisy

National Legal & Policy Center

Today, Paul Chesser, Director of the National Legal and Policy Center’s (NLPC) Corporate Integrity Project, presented remarks at Salesforce Inc.’s annual meeting to support a shareholder resolution the ethics group filed with the company. The proposal would have required the board to implement a policy to require the chair of the board of directors to be an independent member. Currently Marc Benioff holds the roles of both Chairman and co-CEO. The full text of Chesser’s remarks are below: I’m Paul Chesser, director of the Corporate Integrity Project for National Legal and Policy Center. Salesforce’s Chairman and CEO roles should be separated for good governance practice, but also in order to rein in the unaccountable Marc Benioff, who uses the company as his own personal political advocacy tool, and has for many years. There is ZERO evidence that anyone tries to rein him in. All indicators are that this board of directors is a facade – all for show, with no meaningful accountability for Mr. Benioff. There is seemingly no progressive cause that he isn’t willing to throw his considerable corporate weight behind, without consequence to him. I’m sure if he had to answer to a board that cared at all about the company’s reputation, instead of rubber-stamping Mr. Benioff’s political views, he wouldn’t be so bold. He has famously meddled in religious conscious and personal liberty issues in states like Indiana, North Carolina, and Georgia. He issues economic threats when he does so. He has vocally opposed pro-life laws in Georgia and Texas. He is strident and arrogant with his advocacy. He has zero respect for religious liberty or the U.S. constitution – showing utter disdain for the First, Second and Tenth Amendments, among other American governing principles. Then there’s his personal integrity, or lack thereof. Of course, Mr. Benioff’s signature issue is climate change. Yet he perpetuates the fraud that Salesforce, whose big service is cloud computing on massive, power-eating server farms, is at “100-percent renewable energy” in its operations. If that was true, instead of the accounting and carbon indulgence shell game that it actually is, then Salesforce would be bankrupt. Then there’s Mr. Benioff’s hypocrisy. He thinks planting thousands of trees in China helps offset Salesforce’s greenhouse gas sins, but says nothing about that communist government’s ongoing build-out of coal-fired power plants. And of course, like every other cowardly Big-Tech CEO, he says nothing about China’s genocide and human rights abuses. Back home in the U.S., while he advocates for the little people to curtail their fossil fuel use as they pay $6 dollars a gallon for gasoline, he travels in his own personal jet, for which Salesforce reimbursed him $834,000 dollars during the past year for alleged “business use.” Did that include the Davos trip, Mr. Benioff? The company also covered for the cost of his personal security to the tune of more than $1.4 million dollars this past year. Certainly this amount of security includes arming your protection with semiautomatic weapons. Yet Mr. Benioff banned companies that sell such guns from using Salesforce products. He also wants a ban on the popular defense weapon, the AR-15, which is among the country’s best-sellers for law-abiding citizens who look to protect themselves and their families. Again, Salesforce takes care of the hypocrite Benioff, while the little people must fend for themselves. END REMARKS “While he has serious competition, there is perhaps no one who uses his Big Tech company more to advance his personal progressive political agenda than Marc Benioff,” Chesser explains. “Unfortunately he has gotten away with it for years, due to cowardly responses from state politicians who feared big businesses’ threats to ‘boycott’ or leave their states. However, that trend is changing, as Gov. DeSantis has shown in Florida in response to Disney’s political activism.” NLPC has filed more than two dozen shareholder resolutions this proxy season, and appeared at the annual meetings of Berkshire Hathaway, Disney, Coca-Cola, Amazon, Twitter, Meta, and many others. ### Please visit http://www.nlpc.org.

LIXIL

LIXIL, maker of pioneering water and housing products, today announced the establishment of LIXIL Public Partners (LPP), the company’s first dedicated public sector engagement platform. LPP will explore synergies and expanded collaboration with the public sector for the delivery of innovative household solutions in water, sanitation, and hygiene. These efforts will build on existing initiatives such as LIXIL’s SATO brand of safe, affordable sanitation and hygiene solutions, and work to tackle America’s sanitation challenges. Erin McCusker, Leader of SATO, has been appointed as Senior Vice President, with concurrent responsibilities to lead the newly founded LPP unit. McCusker will be responsible for developing business strategies and operating models designed to serve the mutual interests of global partners and LIXIL by introducing innovative products and solutions for improved access to water, sanitation, and hygiene globally. Among governments and geographies across the world, there has been an enhanced focus on social and environmental challenges, including a mandate to provide solutions and resources for issues in water, sanitation, and hygiene. Recognizing the importance and immense opportunity of jointly tackling these challenges, LPP will leverage and maximize the synergies of LIXIL’s technologies and team of experts to provide innovative solutions. In line with LIXIL’s Global Sanitation and Hygiene Corporate Responsibility commitment to improve access to sanitation and hygiene for 100 million users by 2025, LIXIL will strengthen business-to-government channels and operational models for public, private, and community stakeholders. ”With our global presence, expertise in delivering consumer-centric solutions, and experience in developing long-lasting partnerships with development agencies and others, we are uniquely positioned to be the preferred partner to the public sector in household water, sanitation, and hygiene,” said McCusker. “Globally, acceleration is needed to achieve targets set by SDG 6, and commitments such as the White House Action Plan on Global Water Security towards sustainable management of water and sanitation for all. These goals will only be reached by doing things differently, and driving toward more effective collaboration between the public and private sector.” McCusker joined LIXIL in 2018, bringing her extensive strategy and public-private partnership expertise. She will concurrently continue her role leading SATO, a social business, sanitation, and hygiene solution provider for underserved communities that has improved access to toilets and hand washing for an estimated 35 million users in over 44 countries.¹ Under McCusker’s leadership, SATO has shipped over 1 million units for three consecutive years. Most recently, she led strategic engagement with USAID, resulting in LIXIL being awarded approximately $10 million to establish the new Partnership for Better Living. ¹Source: Progress on household drinking water, sanitation and hygiene 2000-2020: Five years into the SDGs.

New Survey Shows the Next Generation Embraces Remote Work for College to Career Transition

Velocity Global

Seven out of ten U.S. college-aged adults are likely to consider an entirely remote job One out of four never expect to hold a traditional 9-to-5 office job, and 85% see themselves holding a side gig Nine out of ten express anxiety about entering the workforce A survey released today by Velocity Global, the leading provider of global talent solutions, shows that U.S. college-aged adults embrace remote work in their career transition plans. The College to Career Survey examined 1,000 college-aged respondents’ attitudes on remote work and their work-life balance expectations as they prepare to transition into the workforce. “The next generation wants to work remotely, balance their ‘personal’ and ‘work’ lives, and prioritize flexibility and mental well-being. Companies should take notice: The old way of doing business is over,” said Sarah Fern, chief people officer at Velocity Global. “Put simply, students want the flexibility to work with anyone, anywhere, anytime, and they expect employers to meet them where they are.” Key findings on remote work: 69% of respondents are somewhat or extremely likely to consider a job that is entirely remote 80% of students would consider taking less money for their job if it allowed a remote option The majority (57%) say being remote increases their productivity Nine out of ten respondents report work-life balance as being either the most important factor (53%) or a somewhat important factor (37%) in selecting a career Fewer than 1 in 5 (18%) say they prefer to work from an office five days per week Fewer than half (44%) of respondents plan to have a traditional (Monday-Friday, 9-to-5) in-person job, and 1 out of 4 (23%) never expect to hold a traditional office job Impacts on emotional well-being: The survey also found a large impact on the emotional well-being of respondents as a result of the move to remote work and learning over the last several years. 56% of respondents acknowledged remote work/study negatively impacted their mental health “a lot” (14%) or “somewhat” (42%) 86% reported a high level of stress or anxiety about entering the workforce, including 35% who indicated they are “very” anxious about entering the workforce, and an additional 51% said they are “somewhat” anxious about doing so Participation in the gig economy: An overwhelming majority of students intend to supplement their primary job with a side gig. 85% of respondents said they either definitely (27%) or possibly (58%) expect to have a side gig in addition to their primary job “That number is staggering, and the C-suite needs to harness the possibilities of tomorrow’s workforce who have varied interests, skills, and allegiances,” said Fern. “Talent is telling us how they will succeed, and it includes full-time, part-time, contract, and freelance work - and sometimes a combination of these. It is entirely possible for you to get the best from your talent while they also pursue other interests. It works for both of you.” International results: The survey also gathered input from 500 students and recent graduates in the United Kingdom (U.K.) and 500 in Brazil, with very similar results. 72% in the U.K. said they would consider an entirely remote position, and a staggering 85% in Brazil say the same 84% of respondents in the U.K. and 82% in Brazil said they would be willing to consider a position that paid less money if it offered the flexibility to work from anywhere “These trends with college students and recent graduates in the U.S. are mirrored in other parts of the world, highlighting the accessibility of a global workforce. In the U.K. and Brazil — where Velocity Global clients increasingly seek supported talent — work flexibility is seen as one of the most compelling factors considered when entering the job market,” said Fern. Methodology: This survey was conducted on behalf of Velocity Global by Rep Data. All selected samples were subjected to stringent quality control standards, including technological controls such as automatic geographical IP detection, tracking and deduplication, open-end pre-screening, and re-captchas. Rep Data sourced multiple suppliers to ensure a representative sample, each supplier possessing its own unique recruitment model and incentive structure, which increased sample source diversity and quality.

Ongoing Threats Against Supreme Court Are a ‘Slow Motion Coup D’Etat’

National Legal & Policy Center

Statement from Peter Flaherty, Chairman National Legal and Policy Center: The attempted assassination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh is the logical and predictable result of compounding threats against the judicial branch by Democrat elected officials and activists, which are still taking place. Unbelievably, there were again demonstrations last night at Kavanaugh’s home. Who can forget the disgrace of the Kavanaugh hearings when members of the Senate and their media allies egged on disruptions of the hearings by left-wing activists and embraced 11 th -hour allegations by Christine Blasey Ford about what Kavanaugh supposedly did in high school, not to mention the wild accusations of gang rape by miscreants like Michael Avenatti, who now sits in prison? Apparently having no shame, New York Senator Charles Schumer continued the assault on our Constitutional processes by threatening Justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch on the steps of the Supreme Court in March 2020. Our Complaint to the Departmental Disciplinary Committee of the New York Supreme Court seeking Schumer’s disbarment only led us to be told that “no action is warranted at this time.” In July 2020, the Committee actually responded with: “While these comments were certainly concerning, the Departmental Disciplinary Committee is cautious about disciplining attorneys, whether local attorneys or pubic officials for comments that may be protected by the First Amendment.” So threats against Supreme Court Justices that are part of a larger campaign — actually a slow motion coup d’etat against the judicial branch — are covered by the First Amendment? This larger campaign includes proposals for “court packing,” the leak of the draft abortion decision, illegal demonstrations at the homes of judges, the vile and bigoted messaging that is present at these protests, and the support for violence to achieve political ends by elected officials, including President Biden. We’ve seen a mass assassination attempt in 2017 of Republican members of Congress by a supporter of Bernie Sanders and the 2020 riots which cost up to $2 billion in property damage and dozens of lives for which Antifa and Black Lives Matter have faced few consequences. In fact, Black Lives Matter flags now fly from US embassies all over the world. America has survived for over 200 years because of Constitutional limits on government, including the separation of powers. The Left understands this, and that is why they have targeted the judicial branch for destruction. Click here for our March 6, 2020 Complaint against Schumer. Click here for the July 27, 2020 response. Click here for our August 5, 2020 appeal of the dismissal.

Retention Cloud Leader CleverTap Unveils TesseractDB™

CleverTap

CleverTap, the world’s No. 1 retention cloud, today announced it has unveiled TesseractDB ™, the world’s first purpose-built database designed to dramatically improve user engagement and retention for digital consumer brands. TesseractDB ™ brings true technology innovation to growth marketing leaders looking to deliver in-context, timely, personalized messaging and recommendations across all user touchpoints.

Leveraging machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI), it offers limitless scale and enables digital brands and businesses to harness data and context for every interaction. User engagement and retention start from Day One when a user launches an app for the first time. Research estimates that nearly 85% of all messaging is considered spam, an average of about 122 billion messages globally. About 36% of spam content is generated from ill-timed, non-personalized marketing messages. This problem continues to be prevalent due to the limited data technologies that are patently unable to store the massive volumes of first-party data required to offer a truly personal customer experience. “Today, we are excited to unveil TesseractDB ™, the data technology that powers the CleverTap platform. It will allow global growth marketing teams to achieve true omni-channel customer engagement,” said Sunil Thomas, CleverTap Co-founder and Executive Chairman. “In the last 40 years, MarTech vendors have cobbled together generic off-the-shelf data technologies in an effort to solve for end-user messaging. These technologies have been limiting, and as a result, brands simply cannot fully unlock their own user data for real and meaningful relationship building. To transition away from the spam and transactional communication that is so prevalent in MarTech today, we must make user data available, affordable, and easily accessible. This is why we invented TesseractDB ™.” TesseractDB ™ is a giant technological leap that removes all data related limitations typically associated with the MarTech industry. Using TesseractDB ™, digital brands can offer each user a magical onboarding experience and continue to deliver delightful experiences throughout their journey. TesseractDB ™ enables CleverTap to offer unmatched technology, features, and capabilities - Unlimited data look back periods without any limitations High speed, scale, and unmatched throughput Rich, granular first-party user data storage Built-in real-time machine learning and AI Hyper-personalized engagement and recommendations “Until now, data look back and access limitations, created by overages and cost, prevented brands from unlocking the full potential of first-party user data for engagement. This is a deep tech and science problem. With TesseractDB ™, CleverTap provides the industry’s most versatile segmentation and data processing engine for mobile engagement, ” says Momchil Kyurkchiev, Chief Strategy Officer, CleverTap. He adds, “TesseractDB ™ is designed to provide MarTech professionals a cost-effective and efficient way to capture unlimited data streams and deliver actionable insights and analytics to drive personalization and engagement.” About CleverTap CleverTap is the modern, integrated retention cloud that empowers digital consumer brands to increase customer retention and lifetime value.

Minuteman Press Franchise Owner Ken Tays Receives Veteran Business Award from NJ State Veterans Chamber of Commerce and The American Legion

Minuteman Press International Inc

US Army Veteran Ken Tays, who owns the Minuteman Press franchise in Newark located at 20 Clinton St., was recognized with the award for Veteran Business under $3 Million by the NJ State Veterans Chamber of Commerce (NJSVCC) and The American Legion at the Disabled Veteran and Veteran Business Summit. The event was held on May 10 th, 2022 at Middlesex College in Edison. The Summit connected over 100 Veteran-owned businesses with private companies and state agencies to help facilitate partnerships on upcoming projects. Ken says, “It was a real honor to attend the Summit, connect with so many other Veterans and supporters of Veterans, and receive such a prestigious award from the New Jersey State Veterans Chamber and The American Legion. My business, Minuteman Press in Newark, is a small, Veteran-owned franchise, and an event like this is really helpful and inspiring to me.” Ken served in the US Army for 11 years and then earned his degree in financial services. Ken shares, “I worked as a Federal Bank Regulator for 12 years and then entered the private sector working for companies like PwC and Citibank. I decided to research franchise opportunities because I wanted to be my own boss.” In 2019, Ken bought Minuteman Press in Newark. He took over the successful business from Holly Kaplansky, who retired after owning and operating Minuteman Press in Newark for 15 years. Ken says, “At its core, Minuteman Press International is a family-owned business. I went out to Long Island and CEO Bob Titus talked to me for an hour and a half. I was looking for a printing franchise that had that family-like atmosphere and wasn’t so corporate. The other franchises I looked into just didn’t have that same feel to them where I felt comfortable like I did with Minuteman Press.” As for why Minuteman Press is the right fit for Veterans, Ken shares, “I feel like this is my business and yet Minuteman Press provides me with that security blanket of local support and guidance. I have no printing experience and the training and ongoing assistance from Jim Galasso and the local field staff here in Newark really helps me. I know I can contact anyone in the company and they will respond and be there without breathing down my neck all the time.” When asked about the rewards of owning his own business, Ken’s first inclination is to say, “Work life balance. That is something I feel like I have even though I am working hard and always on. I love the challenge of running my own business and being responsible for everything. I spent a lot of time in corporate America making money for other people and I wanted to do this. There are ups and downs but it’s on my time.” Ken’s advice for others who are looking into business ownership or franchising is, “I would say that I looked at a lot of businesses. Find something that is a good fit for you, and find a franchisor that has what you’re looking for. I spent several months doing my due diligence, and once you make that decision, you have to be committed.” For more information on Ken Tays’ Veteran-owned Minuteman Press business in Newark, NJ, visit https://www.mmpnewark.com.
