Campfire 69: The Nowhere Office With Julia Hobsbawm
@ 5:55 pm - 7:25 pm
“Everyone wants jobs but they want something else too: meaning. Work-Life balance. In other words, a workshift.”
– Julia Hobsbawm
Presenteeism. Low productivity. Stress. The world of work was sick long before Covid arrived.
So why should a return to business as usual also mean a return to the office?
Best-selling author and consultant Julia Hobsbawm‘s latest book, The Nowhere Office – an FT “Book to Read in 2022” – helps companies understand how to use this extraordinary moment in time to completely rethink the way they do business.
Hobsbawm has spent over 30 years working with organisations to develop strategies for better outcomes – what she calls “Social Health”. She was awarded an OBE in 2015 for Services to Business and is a founder of the US-led Workforce Institute.
In anticipation, ask yourself:
- How might you improve your own happiness in the workplace? How might you extend this to your team?
- If happier employees are more productive, should employers take an interest in their wellbeing outside of work?
- When working autonomously, how can you create a shared sense of purpose and community among employees?
