Finding meaning in your work and life with Erik Roebroek
Do you need more coffee on Mondays? Then this podcast is for you.
Why did former TU/e student Erik Roebroek move from working as an Engineer for Vanderlande, to founding Meaningful Work. He helps people to rethink their careers: from focus on profit and growth towards added value and employee happiness and from classical boring offices towards engaged and inspired work environments.
Erik gave the Studium Generale workshop Student happiness in Corona times when Lockdown 1 was in full swing. Through the Teams session back in June Erik told us he could not give us the perfect recipe for meaningful work on a piece of paper. That is why we went to Strijp-S to meet him in person.
That is a joke btw. There is no clear recipe for meaningful work.

From the first of June, you are required to wear a facemask if you use public transport in the Netherlands. Until last week the Dutch government and RIVM, the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment advised against wearing a facemask. Due to the easing of the intelligent lockdown, face masks are accepted and even demanded in some situations.
But wearing a face mask might feel weird and people might look at you differently. In today’s podcast, Yvonne and Jori discuss the current situation around face masks in The Netherlands and they share 3 experts, in the field of design, who started their own initiatives to make better facemasks. Medical masks as well as masks for the rest of society.
