Lynda Barbaccia Work sucks, or so a lot of people say. With 92 percent of the American workforce unsatisfied with their jobs, this much is obvious. But what isn't so obvious is that adjustments can be made in the workplace that greatly increase employee morale, according to Lynda Barbaccia, the guest of this week's show. The author of Simple Wisdom for the Not So Simple Business World, Barbaccia is an expert at transforming bleak, tedious work environments into places that employees actually enjoy. If the workplace can be so changed, this is no small triumph, considering that adults spend the majority of their waking hours at work, and overall the average person can expect to spend over 10,000 hours working. So, anything that can make the vast amount of time we spend working pleasant is worth paying attention to. What's more, enjoying your day's work is not only good for yourself, but also for the business or individual for which you are employed. Satisfied workers are less likely to get sick, and hence are less likely miss work. Given that absenteeism costs employers millions of dollars a year, maintaining a sunny workforce is in everyone's best interest. If you find your job burdensome, or if you are simply hoping to improve your daily work experience, call in on Monday night (conveniently near the start of the normal work week!) to have Barbaccia answer YOUR questions.
