By | Employment | No Comments

Generally, women are paid less than men for the same work across the world and in almost every industry. Yet some businesses–especially startups–are reducing the gap and are having some remarkable success with Millennial women. This recent study by the jobs site Hired showed that Millennial women are getting higher salaries–about 7 percent more on average–than their male counterparts. Now, pointing out pay inequities for women is not meant, of course, to flip the trend. However, this increase is an interesting and encouraging data point. Read More

job interview

We have hit a strange period in the working world. We are waking up to the obvious fact that people go to work, and not machines. We don’t need to adopt machine scripts or to stop being human just because we are at work. Work is a human place, and we can celebrate that fact, rather than pretend that people operate the same way machines do.  Read More

Two-thirds of Americans believe that, in 50 years, robots and computers will do much of the work humans now do. The World Economic Forum’s 2016 report, The Future of Jobs, estimates that 5 million jobs will be lost to automation by 2020 and that the number will keep growing. Jobs that once seemed like “safe bets”—office workers and administrative personnel, manufacturing, and even law—will be hit hardest, the report estimates. Read More

If the endless, time-consuming online applications don’t suck the life out of you, the feelings of insecurity (When will they contact me? Why didn’t they choose me?) will push you over the edge. This is why so many people stay in jobs they don’t like. They can’t motivate themselves to do the overwhelming, confidence-crushing work it takes to find a better job. Read More

5 Office Mistakes Costing Millennials the Promotion

By | Business | No Comments

Now that career-minded Millennials make up 50 percent of our workplace, it’s safe to assume (like every other generation to enter the work force) they’ll want to earn promotions as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, we’re hearing across the board that a lot of Millennial workers aren’t promotion material, citing a lack of drive and professionalism. However, the real problem lies in a lack of Millennial understanding of the power of perception. In my experience, simple insights are all Millennials need to turn things around. Read More

Are we about to throw away $25 trillion in waste?

By | Business | No Comments

The average car lies idle for 90% of the day. The average power drill is used for 30 minutes of its entire life. Landfill dumps are full.

It is widely recognized that wasteful exploitation of the world’s resources is taking its toll on the environment, but it is less appreciated that the rate and nature of our consumption is choking economic growth. As much as $25 trillion could be at stake by 2050 unless we change the relationship between natural resources, customers and the market. Thanks to radical new business models and technologies, some companies are now growing by finding value in resources, assets and products that have, until now, been vastly underutilised. The circular economy is starting to turn, but more efforts are needed if we are to decouple economic growth from increasing use of natural resources. Read More
