Growth & Workload: from Worthwhile Magazine

11 Apr

In an attempt to refocus, have recently started reading Worthwhile Magazine. If you haven't already, please do visit their website. They have a cool blog too!

In the latest issue of the magazine, Kirsten Johnson, a 26-year old community-builder from Minnesota, in "A Letter to Corporate America", writes:

"…many of my peers are seeking out jobs where they can be challenged to grow. What they are receiving instead is the challenge of having more to do – a growing workload made up of mundane tasks."

And if this did not jolt you into re-thinking your company's approach to work, she goes on to say that, the current generation, while not being afraid of work, is "not interested in giving our heart and soul to an organization unless there is something in it for our heart and soul.
