Deel gives over 6,000 companies the ability to hire, pay, and comply with local laws abroad. Its technology offers HR, payroll, compliance, perks, and benefits needed to hire and manage a global team. Given the acceleration of remote working and international hiring, Deel is not only figuring out the future of work for its customers; it’s also trying to scale its own remote-first organization — one that spans different geographies, time zones, and cultures. Bailey’s hire places her at the forefront of the global conversation around how companies navigate these challenges and take advantage of them.

“As a people leader, a critical part of my role is seeing the future of work and leading the business to that future. Deel is actually building that future. I’m excited to help Deel, our customers, and the entire HR industry shape what this new distributed world of work will look like,” said Casey Bailey, Head of People.

To help Deel and its customers make remote work “work,” Deel has purchased Roots for an undisclosed sum. Roots’ technology integrates with internal communications tools like Slack and Microsoft Teams to help distributed teams anywhere in the world engage with each other more meaningfully. Through Roots’ various products — PTO, 1-on-1s, Onboarding, Social Connections, and Candidate Referrals — companies can streamline processes to positively impact employee wellness and productivity, and reduce burnout. The Roots team is joining Deel, and its technology will be made available to all Deel customers in the coming months.

“Deel’s vision is to make work ‘work’ for anyone, no matter where they live or what they love to do. In a more distributed world and workplace, building a strong culture, increasing collaboration, reducing burnout, and doubling down on inclusiveness across borders have yet to be figured out. Roots can help Deel and its customers solve these problems,” said Kevin Corliss, Roots’ founder and CEO.

Xlear has filed an Amended Answer in response to the U.S. Government’s lawsuit against the company. According to Nathan Jones, Xlear’s CEO, the Amended Answer serves three main purposes: First, it provides the Court with still more data that supports the statements Xlear made that nasal hygiene is an additional layer of protection in fighting COVID-19, that our public health officials are ignoring; Second, it lays out in greater detail how the U.S. Government’s lawsuit is an effort to censor science that doesn’t comport with the Government’s vaccine-myopic, failing strategy to combat the disease; Third, it documents how experts, including Dr. Fauci, are increasingly saying the nose is the critical place to fight the virus. Xlear’s Amended Answer provides two new studies that support the statements Xlear made about the use of its nasal spray as a potential additional layer of protection against COVID-19: A new in vitro study found that use of a simple saline solution stops SAR-CoV2 vira
