The future of work will be determined more by how we feel than how we are paid. This was said by Don Rheem in his TEDx talk given in 2018. I was sitting on the front row, riveted by his speech. I couldn’t wait until it was edited and on YouTube so that I could start sharing it with my colleagues and manager.

There isn’t a labor surplus anymore and there likely won’t be one for a while. What this does it it enables employees to choose between the best jobs. There are more unfilled jobs in America than there are unemployed people to fill those jobs, and it will likely be this way for at least the next 20 years.

This is why it is so important for managers to prioritize making the workplace a place where their employees feel good. Listen to today’s episode to learn more about how to be a manager who can do that as well as an employee who can find a job that you love.
