the WoW - the World of Work!

Paola Granati

We have entered a new era that is transforming all aspects of our lives and work is no exception! It is in these moments of great transformation that we must think differently when we talk about work and move away from the notion that work equals job, equals employment. It is more than that! It defines who we are, what we do, how much money we make, how we live, who we know, how we feel, what we learn, even where we live, the people we hang around with. It can bring status, fulfilment, achievement as well as frustration, burn-out, disenchantment. When we stop seeing work as simply employment and look at it as a world of opportunities where we can put our talents to work in areas we are passionate about, the perspective changes! This is what this podcast is all about. Exploring the world of work from different perspectives with guest speakers who share their stories, and views on how their world of work has changed and what we can expect to see in the future. It is bringing to the table different disciplines and professions with the mission to bring the concept of work closer to people and people closer to work with a WOW!

Part 1 - the WoW of NGOs - Save the Children w/ Adrian Förster
In today's episode I put the spotlight on a different world of work, the world of work of NGOs in general and of Save the Children in particular. I met Adrian Förster, CEO of Save the Children Switzerland recently as I am hosting a live music and fundraising event for Save the Children on December 11 in Zürich and I thought it would be a great opportunity to learn more about what their world of work is like! What are the challenges they face? What's it like to work in an NGO? What led Adrian to pursue this path? How easy is it to attract talent? How do they measure success? As it's quite an unknown world for me, and I suspect for many people, I had loads of questions! Tune in to Part 1 ! And remember the WoW is also available as a video on my YouTube channel.
