How Thinking Outside the Box can Deliver a High ROI

CHICAGO (July 26, 2022) – “In the marketing world you have to be ready to embrace opportunities that might at first seem a little outside the box,” says Rikki Lee Travolta, who piloted record news coverage as the head of public relations for Empire Today and as the head of PR and marketing for Other World Computing.


One outside the box marketing opportunity to take note of is to align your brand with television cooking shows. According to an article in the Hollywood Reporter by Mikey O’Connell, culinary shows are unscripted TV’s fastest growing subgenre. According to MarketingCharts.com, 8 in 10 adults watch cooking shows.


Take The Great British Baking Show as an example – it has been marketing gold for the companies that aligned themselves with the program early on.


Just as you don’t have to be British to enjoy The Great British Baking Show. Similarly, you don’t have to be Polish to enjoy the new hit program The Polish Cooking Show.


The Great British Baking Show features talented bakers politely competing with new baking challenges each episode. Polite is the key word for these competitors. There is no yelling and plotting to undermine each other.


The likability factor of The Great British Baking Show goes a long way with viewers. So, it should come as no surprise that the next sleeper television hit looks like it could be The Polish Cooking. It has a similar quiet and entertaining ambiance.


The Polish Cooking Show brings to life a real Polish custom that upon her son’s getting married, it is his mother duty to teach his new wife the family recipes and the traditions and history that go with them.


As pointed out in the article Why Do People Like Cooking Shows? by Steven Doyle about the psychology behind the popularity of cooking shows, when cooking shows first hit the airwaves in the 1940s and 1950s, they had an educational purpose. Recipes were broken down so that viewers at home could easily follow along.


While competition shows like Hell’s Kitchen and Top Chef drew audiences in with high pressure situations, audiences are ready for a return to friendly, instructional cooking show options. All things old become new again.


The pilot episode of The Polish Cooking Show drew huge ratings on PBS affiliate WTTW thanks in part to a three-act format, a catchy theme song, and the fun and knowledgeable hosts Ala Rokita and her daughter-in-law Natalie (Czupta) Rokita.


In each episode, our Polish mother Mama Ala teaches her new daughter-in-law Natalie a traditional recipe, as well as the cultural history that goes along with each dish. The recipes are broken down for viewers at home to follow along with ease. Each show ends with a finished product and reflections on family traditions. Throughout, Natalie’s quick wit shows off her comedic skills earned at legendary improv training ground Second City.


“Viewers love Natalie and Mama Ala,” says producer Travolta of his two stars. “They genuinely have fun with each other. There’s love in this kitchen.”


“I’ve said it before,” continues Travolta. “Love is a great seasoning.”


Love is no foreign topic for Travolta. He was originally brought to Chicago to headline Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding – getting married six times a week and making the show a hit. While that acting role catered to Travolta’s Italian lineage, The Polish Cooking Show capitalizes on his business talents and his Polish bloodline. He is 25% Polish and very proud of this heritage.


In addition to being one of the creatives on the series, Travolta is also the conduit aligning companies with The Polish Cooking Show.


“If you’re running a company and you have a chance to reach 17,900,000 households over 13 episodes without overwhelming your marketing budget, that’s a package you want to at least consider,” summarizes Travolta.


And while The Polish Cooking Show draws fan mail from a wide range of ethnicities and backgrounds, it doesn’t hurt that there are over 9.1 million Polish Americans in the US.


“The Polish Cooking Show is demographic gold,” advises Travolta. “The show appeals to cooking enthusiasts, newlyweds, those who enjoy learning about other cultures, and of course people interested in the food and traditions of Central and Eastern Europe. We can put companies in touch with these brand-loyal viewers. It’s definitely worth having a conversation. We’re happy to talk and present the data.”


Companies interested in exploring the rewards of being formally associated with The Polish Cooking Show can contact the producers via the Contact page at www.ThePolishCookingShow.com or via email at Partnerships@thepolishcookingshow.com.

Lexis+ Enhanced with Fact & Issue Finder, Enabling Litigators to Generate Precise, Actionable, Practice-Specific Search Results

Interactive dashboard aggregates key facts, topics and issues from legal sources, practice-specific content and data-driven analytics to quickly deliver highly relevant results


NEW YORK – LexisNexis Legal & Professional®, a leading global provider of information and analytics, today announced the upcoming availability of Lexis+ Fact & Issue Finder, a powerful, practice-specific feature that empowers legal professionals to build legal strategies centered around the facts, issues and topics of their case. The new offering supports and is tuned to six practice areas – Personal Injury, Labor & Employment, Insurance, Real Estate, Intellectual Property, and Business & Commercial – with additional practice areas planned.

Developed using feedback from more than 1,000 customer interactions, Fact & Issue Finder is designed from the ground up to mimic the exact processes that legal professionals perform when researching their cases. It then greatly enhances the research experience with the use of state-of-the-art search and machine learning technologies, streamlined workflows and data visualizations.

By inputting facts, issues and topics about a case, Fact & Issue Finder gathers relevant content – including case law, practical guidance, verdicts and settlements, expert witness analytics, and unique practice specific content – all from a single search that is designed to deliver results with every interaction.

The aggregated information is displayed via an interactive dashboard that enables users to conduct extensive research on cases whose facts, issues and topics are the most similar to theirs. In doing so, Fact & Issue Finder reduces the countless hours and burden associated with having to research, compile and review data from numerous sources individually.

“Our customers asked us to help them cut through an overwhelming amount of information for every legal matter, minimize the number of searches, sources and applications they require to complete increasingly complex legal research tasks, and give them confidence that they did not miss any crucial information that would impact their case,” said Sean Fitzpatrick, CEO of LexisNexis North America, UK and Ireland. “Put simply, litigators want to find ‘cases like mine.’ We’ve built a litigation solution that places all of the relevant information they need at their fingertips, wrapped in a highly intuitive and visual user experience.”

Lexis+ Fact & Issue Finder is the only research solution on the market geared toward fact and issue specificity in litigation. Key features include:

  • Case Graph: Visually presents a case’s entire life cycle, displaying its dockets, pleadings, motions, briefs, verdicts and settlements, and cited statutes and making them available with a single click.
  • Expert Advisory Content: Increases knowledge about practice-specific issues from LexisNexis’ Practical Guidance, administrative resources, and exclusive content from Elsevier for medical, insurance, real estate, HR and IP-related sources.
  • Integrated Data and Analytics: Uses Verdicts & Settlements data to reveal trends in similar cases so attorneys can better understand the potential value of their cases, then finds expert witnesses who participated in those cases and have experience with the same facts, topics, and issues as those in their case.

“Lexis+ Fact & Issue Finder is designed to help litigators find highly relevant information aligned to specifics of a case,” said Jeff Pfeifer, Chief Product Officer, LexisNexis North America and UK. “Our goal is to supply litigators with highly curated results while alleviating the common fear of not knowing when it’s appropriate to stop researching.”

Lexis+ Fact & Issue Finder will be available in Lexis+ for subscribers starting September 1, 2022. Additional content may be necessary to power all feature capabilities.

Small Town America: It’s Your Move

Over the past two years, 5 million U.S. people say they have relocated because of remote work. And they’re not alone. Some estimates indicate that 19 million more Americans plan to move due to work from home (WFH).  

Remote work has disrupted a 70-year trend toward urbanization. Forbes contributor, Jack Kelly, noted, “the greater ability to work remotely is leading to new migration patterns.” For the first time in generations, people are moving to live where they want, rather than where they are employed, creating a new geography of work that will draw remote workers away from “superstar cities” to places that offer something, well, more. 

Small Town America. 

After decades of population decline, and the recent rise of remote work, the timing has never been better for a renaissance for Small Town America. In fact, it’s already starting. A Wall Street Journal analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data found that rural counties saw a net gain in population from mid-2020 through mid-2021. Add to that, there are more small towns in the U.S. than there are big cities. The 2020 Census indicates that about 76% of the approximately 19,500 incorporated places in the U.S. have fewer than 5,000 people 

Take West Lafayette in Indiana, North Platte, Nebraska, Ruston, Louisiana and Stillwater, Oklahoma. Each has fewer than 50,000 residents; each also wants remote workers to relocate there and are actively recruiting them.  

That’s a lot of real estate.  

The physical infrastructure—highways, byways and bridges, city services, and residential and commercial properties, to name a few—already exists. With the passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, smaller communities even have even more access to resources that will spur additional development.  

But room to grow and physical infrastructure aside, Small Town America has something else to offer, a magical It Factor: emotional infrastructure.  

There’s a certain romance associated with Small Town America: the town square surrounded by charming storefronts and bustling cafes, neighborly greetings shared with a wave or a tip of the hat, and the inevitable cast of characters who lend lovable flair. It’s all part of an undeniable sense of community—the real-life Schitt’s Creek—Small Town America has in spades. It just can’t be experienced, much less replicated, anywhere else.      

That craving for community is something we hear a lot, at least anecdotally, at MakeMyMove. (We’re an online marketplace that enables remote workers to identify and explore the communities that are incentivizing WFH employees to relocate.)  We know WFH employees miss out on the mentoring, networking and community-building opportunities offered by an in-person work environment. They’re making up for the professional sense of isolation by building richer and deeper connections to the communities in which they live.  

Shahil Shrestha is one of those remote workers. After his Manhattan-based job went remote during the pandemic and his landlord put his rental house in New Jersey up for sale, he reassessed his priorities.  

He moved to West Lafayette in January as part of MakeMyMove’s Work from Purdue program, which offers financial incentives and other benefits to attract remote workers. Sure, he enjoyed the relocation stipend, access to coworking space and open tab at the university’s student union. But within six months, he had also gained a foothold in the community that he hadn’t experienced in other environs. He plays volleyball and badminton. He practices music with a neighbor. He attends events organized for fellow Work from Purdue program participants.  

In other words, he tapped into West Lafayette’s emotional infrastructure and found a community.  

He’s not alone. Our movers have told us time and again, “The money got my attention, but the community is what sold me,” proving that even the most generous relocation package will fall flat if there isn’t a sense of community—that emotional infrastructure, again—to support it.  

Only time will tell if remote worker relocations to West Lafayette, North Platte, Ruston and Stillwater—and thousands of small towns like them—are truly part of a rural renaissance. It’s your move, Small Town America. Let’s make it a movement. 




Bill Oesterle is the co-founder and former CEO of Angie’s List who now serves as Executive Chairman of MakeMyMove, an online marketplace connecting remote workers to communities across the U.S. that are incentivizing remote worker relocations.

When It Comes to Compensation, XpertHR Survey Shows that Employers Feel Trapped Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Survey reveals that employers know they must increase compensation but struggle to do so affordably

New York City (July 14, 2022) – According to the XpertHR Compensation Practices Survey 2022, employers believe that better employee compensation is the key to retaining and attracting talent—though making the necessary adjustments on that front presents its own financial challenges. Nearly eight in 10 (78%) of employers rated offering competitive pay as a “high” priority for attracting talent this year, but 88% said that doing so will be “somewhat” or “very” challenging.


Image caption: Keeping pay competitive, ensuring pay equity and balancing retention with affordability are the top priorities of employers in 2022 [left]—yet, at the same time, employers find these same goals are their top compensation challenges [right].

“The extremely tight labor market is forcing employers to reevaluate their pay structures,” says Natasha Wiebusch, Legal Editor at XpertHR. “Yet many companies struggle to free up the financial resources to do this.”

With the cost of living rising in the current economy, staying competitive with compensation is all the more challenging. Eighty-four percent of the survey respondents said that balancing retention with affordability is also “somewhat” or “very” challenging, while 67% cite inflation and cost-of-living factors among the top three challenges.

“Employers are scrambling to remain competitive with compensation while not breaking the bank,” Wiebusch added. “But the results are clear: employers who want to retain or grow their current workforce must be prepared to spend more on labor.”

Among the bright spots of the compensation survey, however, was the fact that 68% of participating organizations designated pay equity as a high priority this year. The growing effort to improve workforce representation and pay equity was among the top five diversity, equity and inclusion trends XpertHR identified for 2022.

The XpertHR Compensation Practices Survey 2022 was conducted from April 5, 2022, to April 29, 2022, using a self-administered online survey. The survey sample includes 314 employers that are located across the US. The total estimated number of employees of the responding organizations is 536,242. This survey report explores compensation practices, such as what types of pay structures are used, priorities and challenges of compensation structures, common benchmarking practices, and more. A complimentary press version of the report is available upon request.

About XpertHR:
XpertHR has been providing HR solutions since 2002, empowering organizations across the globe to build successful workforces and create a purposeful workplace for all. The platform delivers expert insight, trusted resources, data analysis and practical tools to help achieve greater efficiency, reduce risk, and increase employee engagement.

The MICHELIN Guide sets its sights on Vancouver




    • Vancouver joins Toronto as a Canadian MICHELIN Guide destination
    • MICHELIN Guide inspectors are already in the field, finding culinary gems


 VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 14, 2022 — Michelin and Destination Vancouver today announced the MICHELIN® Guide Vancouver, the latest expansion of the MICHELIN Guide.


Vancouver is home to a thriving culinary community, with both established chefs and young professionals ready to polish their skills. The city’s restaurant teams are committed to using a wide range of high-quality products, such as produce, meat and seafood sourced locally and sustainably.


The first MICHELIN Guide Vancouver selection will be revealed in the fall, and it will showcase outstanding restaurants and professionals receiving Michelin distinctions. The famously anonymous inspectors of the Guide award the iconic MICHELIN Stars – One, Two or Three – to unparalleled cuisine. The Guide is also renowned for its Bib Gourmand selection, highlighting restaurants that offer great quality food at good prices. The MICHELIN Green Star is given to restaurants that are leaders in sustainable gastronomy.


“We’re thrilled to bring the MICHELIN Guide to Canada’s west coast and shine a spotlight on all that Vancouver has to offer,” said Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guides. “Our inspectors are already exploring Vancouver. They are eagerly diving into its wide variety of cuisines, prepared with high-quality products and served in warm, casual atmospheres. Vancouver is celebrated by international travelers for its artistic vibe and multifaceted identity – from impressive buildings to outdoor spaces – and we’re pleased to focus on its very promising culinary potential.”


Meticulous in maintaining their confidentiality, Michelin inspectors are already in the field, making dining reservations anonymously and paying for all their meals to ensure they are treated the same as any other customer.


“The fusion of flavors and cultures, influences from the Pacific Rim threaded through, and the abundance of the freshest ingredients from the ocean and land make the dining experience in Vancouver something very special,” said Royce Chwin, President & CEO, Destination Vancouver. “We have long enjoyed tremendous acclaim for our culinary scene and the MICHELIN Guide Vancouver further elevates the city’s reputation as a global dining destination. And we’re so delighted that Vancouver is now a culinary destination for aspiring young chefs who want to train under the guidance of a MICHELIN-Starred team.”


The upcoming Vancouver restaurant selection will follow Michelin’s historical methodology, based on five universal criteria, to ensure each destination’s selection equity: 1) quality products; 2) the harmony of flavors; 3) the mastery of cooking techniques; 4) the personality of the chef in the cuisine; 5) consistency between each visit (each restaurant is inspected several times a year).


The MICHELIN Guide is constantly observing the evolution of culinary destinations around the world. Michelin works with Destination Marketing Organizations, or tourism boards, to promote the travel industry in the respective locations; however, the MICHELIN Guide selections process remains completely independent.


While selections remain fully independently determined by Michelin inspectors, Michelin is working with Destination Vancouver on marketing and promotion activities only.


The 2022 Vancouver restaurant selection will join the MICHELIN Guide selection of hotels, which features the most unique and exciting places to stay in Vancouver and around the world. Visit the MICHELIN Guide website, or download the free app for iOS and Android, to book unforgettable hotels and make restaurant reservations through partners OpenTable, Resy and SevenRooms.

LexisNexis Introduces New Tools to Mitigate Environmental, Social and Governance Business Risks

The enhancements to Nexis Diligence™ include ESG company ratings and custom news searches that fit seamlessly into the holistic due diligence process

LexisNexis® has introduced several enhancements to Nexis Diligence™that allow compliance and due diligence professionals to incorporate in-depth Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) risk assessment into their workflow—all within a single interface. These enhancements, which include ESG ratings for individual organizations and custom news searches, address the growing need for organizations to integrate ESG factors into existing due diligence research and reporting processes.

“ESG is a growing concern for all companies, and these ESG-focused enhancements to Nexis Diligence support and streamline a more complete due diligence process that can significantly reduce risk,” said Danielle McCormick, Chief Product Officer, LexisNexis. “The new features offer our users a powerful tool to manage the increasing scrutiny on sustainability efforts, as well as the emerging regulatory demands for businesses to go beyond traditional risk assessments.”

ESG Ratings

Provided by CSRHub, Nexis Diligence’s new ESG ratings are determined through an analysis of 350 million data points, from a wide-ranging collection of sources. These include data from 20 of the premier socially responsible investment analysis firms, 800+ nongovernmental organizations, government agencies, news feeds, social networking groups, smaller for-profit organizations and publishers. Each rating is broken down by category and related sub-category, offering a more complete understanding of ESG performance. The resulting ratings are extensive and updated monthly, assessing the ESG performance of 99.5% of the Russell 3000 index and over 30,000 companies in Europe, Asia, North America, and the rest of the world.

ESG Custom News Searches

Nexis Diligence’s ESG Custom News feature complements CSRHub’s ESG ratings, allowing users to dive into the impact of a company’s sustainability efforts at a moment’s notice. The Custom News enhancement facilitates quick ESG research across LexisNexis’ global collection of 40,000+ premium and web news sources.

Each search begins with a set of predefined ESG search terms which can be customized to align with preferences or specific risk concerns. These searches offer not only a valuable snapshot of ESG performance but improved risk visibility and greater operational efficiency.
