    Episode 4: Making work better in the new normal with David D'Souza

    Episode 4: Making work better in the new normal with David D'Souza

    Our letter today from Clara asks about how to adapt to the future of work. As this month's guest says, Covid has come along and shaken things up and presents an opportunity to think what ways of working do want to keep and what should we drop?  Will the majority of us be working remotely in the future or is it more nuanced than that?We talk about shifting to practices that are more valuable to organisations and their employees: valuing productivity and output versus presenteeism; valuing the jobs that we have learnt are vital to keep the world going day to day and also addressing underlying structural inequality by tackling gender and ethnicity pay gaps.Also, is it time to stop doing appraisals? And does your organisation really need a policy to prevent cocaine fuelled car surfing? It's all in today's action packed episode. Links from today's episode: 1.

    In episode 3 courtesy of a letter from ‘Ray’ we talk burnout and how to approach this in interviews, why the idea of ‘bringing your whole self to work’ is nonsense and what happens when our personal values clash with organisational values. Also we discuss the idea that interviews are designed to keep you out of the organisation, and how to approach them with this in mind.
