TED and Adam Grant feature JPMorgan Chase in new WorkLife podcast.

Think about this, most of us will spend over 90,000 hours at work over the course of our adult life. That’s nearly 30% of our total adult waking hours. That time is precious, so how do you go about making it as meaningful and purposeful as possible?

To help us figure that out, JPMorgan Chase, Warby Parker, Bonobos and Accenture have come together to co-sponsor WorkLife. This is a brand-new podcast series created by TED (of the famous TED Talks).

Worklife Integration Powers Home Remodeling Company

Best friends and soccer teammates Asher Raphael and Corey Schiller were fresh out of American University and considering graduate school when they made a pit stop in home remodeling sales. Today, the co-CEOs of Chester-based Power Home Remodeling operate a business with a few thousand employees in more than a dozen offices across the country.

” … our goal has never been to create work-life balance for ourselves or our employees. Our goal is to create high-functioning, happy, fulfilled people.”

Their pit stop has lasted almost 17 years. Chosen as top leaders in the large-company category based on employee responses to the 2020 Inquirer Top Workplaces survey, Raphael and Schiller discuss how they aim for work-life integration over work-life balance.

Worklife Integration Powers Company Culture and Policies

“I don’t think that people who are highly functioning and fulfilled are typically balanced. Instead of work-life balance, our focus is work-life integration.”

Asher Raphael of Power Home Remodeling says, “we try to create a culture where all of the things employees are passionate about in life can be found through the organization. If our employees are passionate about the community where they live, they have volunteer time off. If they’re passionate about wellness, if they’re passionate about leadership development — all of these things they can find inside the business. We want coworkers to become true friends.”

Capita To Close Over A Third Of Offices Permanently

Capita to close over a third of offices permanently

Outsourcing firm Capita is to close over a third of its offices in the UK permanently, the BBC understands. The firm, which is a major government contractor, is to end its leases on almost 100 workplaces.

Business lobby group CBI has warned that the fall in office working is damaging city centre economies.

“It’s the biggest experiment we’ve ever had in homeworking”

A Capita spokesman said: “We take seriously the responsibilities we have to the communities in which we operate. And are mindful of the impact that potential office closures could have on small businesses.”

“Following dialogue with our employees it has become very clear that they would like to work in a more flexible way. This will involve increased working from home. But they will still spend a significant amount of their time working from offices that are based in the heart of our local communities.”

“It’s the biggest experiment we’ve ever had in homeworking,” the CIPD’s chief executive Peter Cheese told the BBC in an interview in July. “Bosses are starting to shift towards judging output, rather than the number of hours spent in front of the computer.”

Home School Tech Startups Supporting Endangered Working Parents

Home School Tech Startups Supporting Endangered Working Parents

The coronavirus has created a looming and real talent crisis. A recent survey from the HR startup Cleo, found that 27% of working parents planned to leave the workforce, up from just 6% in April. A number of home school tech startups that are coming out, may stem this tide for endangered working parents.

Working parents are juggling the seemingly impossible task of keeping their families safe, providing quality education and child care, and remaining at peak productivity in their career.

“Unpaid work of caregiving and household management is in overdrive. It’s this unpaid work that is one of the many barriers to a woman’s economic equality.”

Without solutions, our employers face an imminent threat to talent retention and reductions in productivity, as well as morale, as families’ home-life obligations skyrocket.

Here are some home school tech startups to help your understanding of what is on offer out there. Maxwell.App, is founded by Adriana Cisneros-Basulto. LeadKid Academy, is founded by Debaditya Dutta, Ph.D., Sanjukta Roy and Yujie Ying, Ph.D. TheirSpace, is founded by […]

5 skills employers are looking for right now

LinkedIn has analysed millions of job adverts to find what employers are looking for. Here is a quick look at the 5 in-demand skills researchers say employers are looking for right now. They are communication, problem solving, analytical skills, customer service, and leadership.

This is an excerpt that will not bring you all the details. But take for example leadership. This includes being able to make a clear list of your priorities in the right order. That is, not thinking in a binary way; there are rarely only two choices in a tough situation.

Harvard Business School professor Bill George says he prioritises being “authentic.” Leaders “bring people together around a passion, for a common purpose, to make this world a better place.”

Remote Work Is Reshaping San Francisco

Remote_work is reshaping San Francisco

Remote work is reshaping San Francisco, as tech workers flee and rents fall. By giving their employees the freedom to work from anywhere, Bay Area tech companies appear to have touched off an exodus. ‘Why do we even want to be here?’

For years there’s been talk of a potential exodus from the San Francisco Bay Area. This is spurred by the exorbitant cost of living and long, slogging commutes. But before coronavirus, leaving the area meant walking away from some of the best-paying and most prestigious jobs in America.
