The list is based on detailed sentiment ratings over a 12-month period, which let employees rate companies based on attributes such as work environment, fair pay, benefits, and whether or not their career goals are being met. Employees can also rate firms based on negative attributes like burnout. The ratings are provided anonymously from September to September, so employees for the 2020 list have had plenty of time to factor in changes in workplace conditions due to the coronavirus pandemic. … [Read more...] about Want to be happy at your job?

5. Remember the royal “we.” One criterion that I’ve found critical to success of new leaders is their storytelling ability. Yes, it may seem unusual to keep that quality top of mind during interviews, but company leaders need to be able to tell the company story–whether to investors, friends or media–as just that: the company story. If a company leader makes the story too much about them–their contributions, their perspectives, and their experiences–they’ll lose the respect of the team they’re supposed to lead. As they say, there’s no “I” in “team” … and definitely not in “startup,” either. … [Read more...] about Your First 5 Hires Can Make Or Break Your Company–Here’s How To Choose Carefully
“My biggest point about what I feel could have been done better around the  elections is showing uncertainty, and that’s a big thing to me,” says Lupi. “There’s so much we don’t know, so many people who don’t answer a poll, so many people who might not change their mind but don’t go voting. . . .

The populations that are in the crosshairs of both the COVID-19 pandemic and the climate crisis are also the ones that are helping the rest of us survive. Without restaurant workers, sanitation workers, farm workers, healthcare workers, capitalism as it currently operates would come to a halt, Wilson says. But these populations are also increasingly vulnerable. According to data from San Francisco, over a four-day span of testing in May, 95% of the positive tests were Hispanic, and 90% of those who tested positive said that they could not work from home, and most were low-income. A study of essential workers in April found that low-wage essential workers, like grocery clerks, home health aides, and delivery drivers, were two to three times more likely than high-wage essential workers to lack protections like masks, hand sanitizer, and regular handwashing opportunities. … [Read more...] about Why environmental justice must be a part of green COVID-19 recovery
Driving is already highly subsidized across the country. We build cheap—often free—areas for parking, we invest in highways, drivers don’t pay for congestion or CO2 emissions, and zoning laws and taxes favor sprawl. “We have this very unequal landscape where people without cars face a lot of challenges to get around,” he says. Some nonprofits and local programs are leveling the playing field. Vehicles for Change is one; others, such as 1-800-Charity Cars or Cars 4 Christmas, give vehicles away for free. Klein noted that the government offers substantial incentives for buying electric vehicles but not for e-bikes, and subsidizing the latter could also benefit people closer to or within cities. There are programs in California that subsidize repairs for cars that wouldn’t pass a smog test or help people completely replace their older, polluting vehicles with a hybrid or electric car. … [Read more...] about Should we be subsidizing cars for low-income families?
