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.
So join us as we explore the culture of work. And feel free to drop us a line to share your experience and ideas:
The Workplace Culture Desk has been made possible by a generous grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air. But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.
Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.
When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
