    What Defines The Happiest Employees in the World? w. Liselotte Jensen

    Happiness. What comes to mind? Your family, your friends? Sunkissed memories from your last holiday with sand between your toes? Or what about your job?  
    These days, elevating the employee wellbeing is on top of the agendas for most workplaces. This might be caused by the time we had to reflect during the pandemic about what truly made us happy in life and at work. And now we, the employees, crack the typical structures of what happiness at work truly means.  
    So, how can we make sure that everyone is happy at work, and how does the happiest employees in the world look like?    

    Guest: Liselotte Jensen, CEO at Great Place to Work, Denmark

    The 4 Day Work Week - What's New and Can it Work? w. Alex Pang

    The 4 Day Work Week - What's New and Can it Work? w. Alex Pang

    The 4 Day Work Week is trending as never before. Now, it’s not only something that cool start-up companies take on, but larger corporations are also starting to look into this interesting way of framing our work. And what’s not to like? You get the same pay for working less. BUT – the thing is, you still have the same workload as before. This means, that if you don’t structure your way of working even better, time becomes an issue and it might end up stressing you out during your workday, while you snap at your insisting co-workers – who just like you – also need to get their tasks done in the timeframe of a 4 day work week.  
    So, how can you ensure that the 4 day work week will become a success – both for you as an employee and your company too?   

    Guest: Alex Soojung-Kim Pang, Speaker, Author, and Founder of Strategy and Rest - a consultancy devoted to helping companies and individuals harness the power of rest to shorten our workdays while staying focused and productive.

    How Do We Learn in a Post-Pandemic Hybrid World? w. Christian Haahr Sigsgaard & Ann-Katrine Schepler Holmberg

    How Do We Learn in a Post-Pandemic Hybrid World? w. Christian Haahr Sigsgaard & Ann-Katrine Schepler Holmberg

    Do you remember how you earned new skills before the pandemic? Maybe, you took out several days in your calendar to get new inputs in a course room, and met with other people from outside the usual office space? The two-year pandemic made this almost impossible, and the learnings we’ve got from learning new skills digitally will, now, definitely be something that we can fit into our new reality of work.  
    However, the hybrid workplace is moving in on us, and more and more people work remotely part-time or all of the time, so how can we be sure that everyone gets the same opportunities to learn something new? Will this be the end of in-person training completely? And then, how can we be sure to incorporate the social aspect of learning with each other during our workdays?  

    Guests: 
    Christian Haahr Sigsgaard, Global Learning and Development Director at Valtech

    New Gender Gaps in the Hybrid Workplace? w. Liam Martin & Emelie Fågelstedt

    New Gender Gaps in the Hybrid Workplace? w. Liam Martin & Emelie Fågelstedt

    Studies show that more women than men have asked for more flexibility to work remotely post-Covid-19. And if their managers are not fully up to speed to handle employees working remote, then the women working remote will easily be forgotten, if they are not as visible in the office spaces. They miss out on the reflections after the meeting at the coffee machine and the casual small talk at the working desks, and because of that, they can potentially also miss out on promotions and new career opportunities, that will be granted to the visible co-worker in the office instead.  
    So, what can women and other people who want to work more remotely do to make themselves more visible? And is it even their responsibility, or rather their manager’s, to make sure that everyone gets the same opportunities – regardless of whether they are working in the office or at the remote home office?   

    In this episode of WORK 3.0 our guests, Liam Martin & Emelie Fågelstedt, will discuss what the future workplace will look like to embrace all kinds of employees and whether the hybrid workplace is actually a good idea if we won't create new gender gaps. 

    Guests: Liam Martin, founder of Time Doctor.com and Staff.com, and co-author of the book: Running Remote, and Emelie Fågelstedt, Digital Communications Specialist and Co-founder of Swedish Nomads.

    What Does the Modern Career Path Look Like? w. Morten Esmer & Katrine Schelbli

    What Does the Modern Career Path Look Like? w. Morten Esmer & Katrine Schelbli

    We used to think that our careers only went one way: Up. Up. And up again. Until we finally reached the top. But with a new focus on happiness at work and what is essential for our wellbeing, then we might not want to do this step up that often comes with more responsibility and more tasks to handle. Maybe we are content where we are if we just get rewarded with new challenging tasks? Or maybe there is another twisted path that works better for us than the usual one-way street only going up.

    In this episode, Katrine Schelbli and Morten Esmer talk about what the modern career path looks like today and give great tips on what it could look like in the future. 

    GUESTS: Morten Esmer, Head of Learning & Development at Dagrofa & Katrine Schelbli, COO at Learningbank

    How to Fight The Great Resignation w. Ben Zweig

    How to Fight The Great Resignation w. Ben Zweig

    Working 9 to 5. So, the song goes. Or does it? New movements don’t want to live to work anymore, while others simply are getting tired of poor culture and stress at the workplaces. Someone also speaks about covid clarity and wants to do more meaningful work. Put in other words: The great resignation is upon us.  

    But what can companies and organizations actually do to keep us, the employees, and prevent us from pursuing other, maybe even more rewarding possibilities?  

    In this episode, Ben Zweig, CEO at Revelio Labs & Adjunct Professor at NYU Stern School of Business, goes into detail about attrition rates the last year across industries and shares his insights on why employees are leaving and how to keep them instead.
