Is the future of work at home or at the office?

Do you work in an office or from home? According to a 2017 Gallup study, 43% of Americans report spending at least some time working remotely, so chances are you do some work from home. Depending on who you ask, that’s a good thing. Working from home allows workers the flexibility to maintain that careful work-life balance and companies benefit from the increased productivity. So, working remote is a win-win all around or… is it? (dun, dun, dun…)

In this episode of “The Jim Stroud Podcast” I report on the good and bad of remote work while asking the question, is the future of work at home or at the office?

The Future of Work is Racism

Some people think the United States is a racist country. If America is a racist country, wouldn’t that make the American workplace racist as well? Possibly. The demographics of America are rapidly changing and where there are differences there is inevitable conflict. Some of the issues are a result of ignorance to the differences represented in various cultures and as a result, racism rears its ugly head to diverse degrees.

I discuss the state of racism in the American workplace and why I think it will become worse in years to come. At the same time, I defend my country because I do not believe America is immutably racist. Tune in for a very thought provoking episode. | Click here to read the transcript and download the show notes. | Special thanks to our sponsor – Supapass!

Why are we so lonely? I blame social media.

Can I ask you a personal question? Are you lonely? A recent study by CIGNA suggests that you are. They surveyed more than 20,000 U.S. adults -18 years and older and find out that nearly half of Americans sometimes or always feel alone, One in four Americans rarely or never feel as though there are people who really understand them, Two in five Americans sometimes or always feel that their relationships are not meaningful and One in five people report they rarely or never feel close to people. Why is this? I blame social media. Tune in to find out why.  | Click here to download the transcript (and links to all the resources cited in the podcast.)
