Allison+Partners signed the Time to Vote pledge to encourage employees to take time out of their workdays to vote in the midterm elections. In accordance with this pledge, and continuing an initiative the firm started in 2016, all staffers, including interns, in Allison+Partners’ U.S. offices have been provided with up to four hours paid time off to vote. The firm is also offering a day for early dismissal, should it reach a percentage goal for its offices across the country. Offices are also hosting celebrations to encourage voting and meeting the participation threshold. For example, the firm’s New York office held a "Beer and Ballots" party on Friday to give employees time to review the issues, go over their ballots, and see where candidates stand in preparation for voting. The firm also has a mock "bake sale" going on for those who voted to pick up some sweet treats.

If so, you’re not alone. Only 29 percent of Americans sleep with their bedroom doors closed, according to a recent survey by the UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute. And of those who do keep doors open, the group reports, more than half think it will actually help them in a fire to have doors open for easy access to other rooms. READ MORE

What does it really mean to be a man? Since the #MeToo movement started a year ago, that’s a conversation brands are less afraid to have.
Experts say Me Too has not changed the principles of marketing to men, which were already getting a second look and moving away from stereotypes, says Alyssa Garnick, SVP and senior partner of FleishmanHillard's consumer and brand marketing practice.
Or, as Lisa Rosenberg, Allison+Partners’ chief creative officer and consumer marketing co-chair, puts it, male-focused marketing has always been more than just "cars, girls, and booze." READ MORE
