To help understand the Brain of the Planner, Zulily commissioned a first-of-its kind pilot study by third-party researcher ENGINE, which looked at moms to uncover their attitudes and emotions related to planning versus procrastinating. As part of this research, ENGINE used linguistic and facial coding to study the differences in language and emotions displayed by Planners and Procrastinators as they engaged in a series of storytelling tasks. This study found that moms experience lower stress and anxiety, more time for leisure and socializing, healthier relationships, and more stability through planning—and importantly, that these positive behaviors can be learned over time.
As part of the Qurate Retail Group family of brands, Zulily is excited to welcome David Rawlinson II as QRG's next Chief Executive!
