This week I speak with Melissa Swift, author of the book Work Here Now: Think Like a Human and Build a Powerhouse Workplace.

Sawdust on the factory floor is the metaphor Melissa uses to describe the modern workplace. Just as un-cleared sawdust was a safety hazard in 1800s factories, our accelerated work regimes imperil workers today. As Transformation Leader at HR-focussed consultancy Mercer, Melissa has developed a suite of strategies to build thriving workplaces.

We talk:

  • Intensification of work
  • Perils of modern tech
  • Trauma awareness 
  • How we recover
  • Rituals to rehumanise work
