Howdy Partners! 

The Maryland Legislature is working on a new bill to promote the four-day workweek among local companies. To do that, they will offer tax credits of up to $750,000 a year, for up to two years. They are also considering changing their state motto from “Strong deeds, gentle words” to “No Zoom on Fridays”.

Partnership of the Week

Pearl necklaces were dropped and three-pointers missed as Nike and Tiffany & Co. announced an upcoming partnership. The mystery collaboration was simply announced with a Nike shoe box sporting Tiffany’s color palette. We called their agency and pitched an idea for a movie called “Playing 21 at Tiffany’s” featuring LeBron James, but they didn’t seem interested.

Numbers that matter

Our very own Asher Mathew was part of Allbound’s “3 Strategies for a Recession-Proof Approach to Partnerships” webinar, along Kelly Sarabyn, Ben Wright and Tori Barlow. Check out his conclusions around the most important metric for Partnerships teams right now.
