Having a wonderful work environment is not a standard held only for tech start-up companies and their computer-savvy employees. Many people want a happy, healthy, friendly work culture – this goes for employees and employers alike. Today I discuss employees seeking a great work environment and the employers who are creating a positive culture.
The book referenced is Cameron Herold’s Double Double.
Do you believe healthy work environments exist? Where can you go to seek out the employers creating positive environments? What skills do you need to brush up on to be attractive to those employers?

Thank you thank you thank you for today’s post! It is a great reminder that there’s a workplace out there for everyone. When you’re not enjoying your job, it’s so easy to get caught up in the ‘why make a change? all companies are like this’ mentality. But this reminds us that not all companies are greedy, just wanting more and more of your time without an acknowledgement of the increased responsibilities (ie increased pay, better benefits, etc.). If the current situation isn’t a fit, it’s not permanent and you can find one that works better for you.
Happy to hear the post resonated with you Lindsay! I think you’re right that it’s easy to think that the status quo you’re living in is what is happening in every workplace, but there’s actually a lot of variety in workplace environments.
