Welcome to emploYAY

Podcast | Rethinking employment

In our bi-weekly interview sessions, we want to learn about new and innovative employment situations. What are alternative ways to find a new job? How can we find more meaning in our work? How can we leverage our strengths and full potential in our jobs? How do companies need to react to adapt to nonlinear careers when recruiting? What are new and flexible approaches in terms of working time and location? Should we even measure working time or is more about the impact we have? We want to discuss those questions with companies, HR people, founders, recruiters or everyone else, that offers new and alternative approaches to those questions. We also want to present people with interesting jobs and people that have created something meaningful within their “standard” jobs. We won’t ask you to quit your job and become self-employed. Because we believe there must also be answer in employment jobs.

#15 | Wolfgang Wopperer-Beholz - The future of work and its impact on society

Updated: Jul 8, 2019

Wolfgang discusses the different meanings, purposes and perspectives on work, describes how those have changed over time and how work has become part of our identity.

We talk about the disruption of ecosystems and why business models need to change and why sustainable & eco-friendly approaches are needed RIGHT NOW and we need to get over consumerism.

He reminds us that we, as a society, have now the possibility to define how we want to live & work and that we need to take an active approach in order to shape the future of our planet.

We talk the pros and cons of being self-employed, which skills are needed for the jobs of the future and how companies need to become more human-centred and really „mean it“.

Enjoy this very insightful episode.
