KAI RYSSDAL: Should you happen to know someone who works at Intel, don’t take offense if they didn’t answer your e-mail today — this was the first of the company’s new Zero E-Mail Fridays.

Workers are discouraged from sending digital correspondance. Instead, they’re supposed to take some time and actually — get this — talk to each other. As in face-to-face.

Other companies have similar policies. We don’t. But the Marketplace Players think it might take some workers a while to adapt…

There’s a lot happening in the world.  Through it all, Marketplace is here for you. 

You rely on Marketplace to break down the world’s events and tell you how it affects you in a fact-based, approachable way. We rely on your financial support to keep making that possible. 

Your donation today powers the independent journalism that you rely on. For just $5/month, you can help sustain Marketplace so we can keep reporting on the things that matter to you.
