Welcome to the new Workplace Culture Desk!
I’m Meghan McCarty Carino, Marketplace’s new Workplace Culture reporter, and it’s my job to talk about your job: what you love about it, what you’d change about it and how it affects your life in ways large and small.
We spend a third of our day at work (if we’re lucky). It’s where we often find friends, sometimes love, hopefully inspiration and usually a sense of identity. Oh yeah, and of course the whole paycheck thing!
Our work is where we place some of our greatest hopes and deal with some of our greatest challenges. Its changing nature reflects the larger forces of our world and culture, from the rise of the gig economy and automation, to the #MeToo movement, pay disparities and digital nomads.
The Workplace Culture Desk has been made possible by a generous grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.
In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
Generous support from listeners and readers is what powers our nonprofit news—and your donation today will help provide this essential service. For just $5/month, you can sustain independent journalism that keeps you and thousands of others informed.
