The search for purpose at work
Is it tough to define your purpose at work? You’re not alone. Half of the US-employees surveyed in the McKinsey report "Help your employees find purpose or watch them leave" are reconsidering the work they want to do as a result of Covid-19. Hear from two of the authors, Bill Schaninger and Naina Dhingra. They'll share their definition of individual purpose, why purpose benefits the organization as a whole, and two probing questions that will help you articulate what your individual purpose is.

Global Financial Security
Good job looking back at the reason for the recession nearly 10 years ago. The banks are given credit for the lion share of the collapse in the markets and home ownership. But you need to go back further and study why the banks were in that spot. Home ownership became an entitlement during the Bush and Clinton era. Home ownership was an American right. Banks were loaning 110% more or less over appraisals. The feds supported it. Home ownership is and must be a privilege that is earned over time being a good steward of financial resources.
Poster Child of a Soulless Mega-Firm
McKinsey is a true world leader in tolerating evil.
Content is professional. I believe that McKinsey is adding to the already pervasive bias that men with British accent are infinitely more capable than without. For a company I look to to help dispel myths this feels like fuel to the fire.
