Why Good Jobs Matter with Zeynep Ton (Ep. 2)

In our second episode of our New Human Movement series, Gary and I spoke to Zeynep Ton, professor at the MIT Sloan School of Management and one of the pre-eminent experts on crating good jobs.

Here are some of the topics we covered:

  1. What constitutes a "good job?"
  2. Questioning the most toxic assumptions about frontline work
  3. Developing the metrics to lay bary the cost of crappy jobs
  4. The limts of centralized management
  5. The role that investors and other stakeholders should play to promote good jobs.

For our reflections on this conversation, check out the companion article published by Fast Company:
