work

I’m no expert but I have a keen interest in how people work. What makes people productive? How will changes in technology affect employees and employers? What lessons can we learn from other countries’ work practices? And most importantly in my opinion how can we ensure that people have a healthy work/life balance?

My educational background was in Archaeology where I spent a lot of time considering how humans lives have changed through the ages. I’ve worked in a number of different sectors since then, retail, sales, Archaeology, hospitality, logistics, web design and most recently marketing. I’ve seen working life from many different angles. I’ve worked for good employers and terrible ones and sometimes terrible ones masquerading as good ones. Everything I write is tainted by my own experience, I am certainly not objective, this is not the gospel truth but you may find useful ideas in some of the things I write.
