    Empowering Workplaces in 2023

    Empowering Workplaces in 2023

    We set out to create a podcast to help organizations have their people feel seen and heard; like they are making a difference in all parts of their life. We also shared strategies with workers directly about ways they can grow their careers, feel fulfilled and happy inside and outside of the workplace. As we shared important conversations with our guests, one word kept coming up to reflect the feeling that the discussions provoked: empowerment.

    From today Work@Life podcast will be called Empowering Workplaces. We are stepping into the new year with a clear mission, and a name that we felt best reflects that mission. We want to help empower organizations to be the best places for their people, and help empower workers to be the best version of themselves.

    Thank you so much to those who have been on this journey with us, we can't wait to show you what we have planned for 2023!
