The Capital Region Rundown: A CEO’s hourly schedule, an app that supports neurodivergent students, Evil HR Lady & more

Good morning, Capital Region. As we passed the threshold of a new year, many of us couldn’t help but notice that 2022 seemed poised to look similar to the two years before it. But even though the same circumstances are persisting, we’re seeing new trends and innovation. Sacramento businesses are creating new policies and work styles to adjust to “the new remote reality” (to quote our January cover story). They’re making do with pandemic challenges, and in many cases, thriving. 

Over the past week, we’ve published a handful of stories in that same vein: improvement, innovation, balance and perseverance: 

A Northern California publisher shares the secrets to the longevity of their print publications, which includes two newspapers that are 150 years old or older; the CEO of the Greater Sacramento Economic Council breaks down his daily schedule, which is packed with back-to-back presentations and back-bending yoga poses; the biofuels industry is turning wood waste into fuel and positively impacting wildfire-prone forests in the process; a Davis app is helping neurodivergent students and their parents set academic and behavioral goals; Evil HR Lady guides employers through the question of how (and if) they should ask employees to return to the office; and CalMatters looks ahead to the issues and policies you need to know about in 2022. 

Don’t forget to subscribe to the magazine to stay up to date on the region’s business trends, and follow us on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn for daily stories and extras.
