It’s labor day: reflect on what you tell yourself about your workplace

A short blog to start today. Today is labor day and I intend to take some time off like most other people. Too often in my line of work in Learning and Development I hear how people describe their workplaces. I often wonder how many of them are telling the truth about the workplace in which they work. Too often, what people seem to say doesn’t reflect the reality.

Learning and Development professionals play a huge role in helping create better workplaces. As part of a global campaign, Conversari Global are asking the big question about how we can create better workplaces where people really can be creative, be heard, be a leader and be organized.

Take just two minutes today to watch this really short video and think about your workplace. I’d love to hear comments in the feed about your reality and how you see the world of work today.

Creating a better world of work is possible. #work #business #betterworldofwork
