Searching for Balance: How and Why We Work

SOURCE: Morgan Stanley

DESCRIPTION:

Industrialists like Henry Ford made the 40-hour work week popular in the 1920s. A hundred years later, as we reflect on how the global pandemic changed our work lives, we meet people questioning the 40-hour standard and searching for more sustainable options.

Host Sonari Glinton talks to Celeste Headlee, journalist and author of Do Nothing, about burnout, and how that led her to reorient her life and approach to work. Next, we meet Jomar Reyes, who worked at Danish digital marketing agency IIH Nordic as they transitioned to a 4-day work week. Finally, Jennifer Scott is a bike courier and labor activist in Toronto and her work schedule makes 9-5 look like a dream. Jennifer explains how gig workers are fighting for more sustainable careers.
