The way we work, how work is changing, how it used to be and what it might look like in the future.
It’s about who we work with, and who we work for.
It’s a discussion about the conditions in which we work and the demands of a job.
It’s talking about how it can be the best thing in our lives and also the worst.
Work can give us meaning and satisfaction, it can be the most challenging thing we’ve ever done and the most soul destroying days of our lives. And that can all be in the same week!
Above all, we want to talk about work in a way that helps make work better for everyone who listens. So, clock on to “On the Job” and subscribe.
