Better Jobs with Companies That Care

August 16, 2017

Look, we're going to be straight with you: this week sucked. It sucked hard. Normally we're glass half full kind of gals, but turn on the news (or your computer, or your phone, or stick your head out from under the covers) and negativity is rampant. It hits us at every curve and it's difficult to bring the levity we're normally known for. But every once in awhile, it's ok to let your guard down and let the world know you're human. Y'know, a human with emotions and feelings and a soul. We weep for lives lost, opportunities lost, ground-gained lost. We weep for us all. Take care of yourselves, and take care of each other. It's times like these that bring the important stuff into perspective. We pray the future brings brighter days, and we won't stop fighting until it does.

FEATURED COMPANY THAT CARES: ZENDESK

Zendesk builds software to power customer relationships, but that's not the only power they produce. This benefit trounces all the others we've seen to date (and we've seen many): on-the-job napping, anyone? Providing ample PTO and comfy couches, you won't be getting behind-the-back side-eye here for catching a little snooze. Don't believe us? Check them out and see for yourself (along with a plethora of other hard-to-beat benefits, too!)

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

The ABCs of ERGs: How to Create, Build and Grow Employee Resource Groups

Part of PowerToFly's Employer Conversations Series: DEI All Year Long

Being your authentic self at work can be a struggle. That's where Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) come in. An ERG builds connections between teams that go beyond simple work relationships. Whether the focus is on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or being a parent, an ERG can be a powerful growth tool for both the individual and the company; and they go a long way in creating more diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplaces.

Join PowerToFly and its partner APCO Worldwide, as we break down the ABCs of ERGs. Whether you are looking to start your own ERG, grow your membership, receive stakeholder buy-in, or take your group to the next level, we hope you'll join and participate in this interactive discussion with your fellow leaders. There's no need to prepare anything in advance, but we hope you'll lend your voice to the conversation. Questions are welcome!

RSVP HERE FOR FREE

This interactive discussion, part of PowerToFly's Employer Conversation Series: DEI All Year Long, will take place on October 7th from 12pm to 1pm ET.

From PM to Chief of Staff: How Kensho’s Meaghan Cassidy Approaches Career Growth & Continuous Learning

Meaghan Cassidy had all the cool pandemic hobbies before they were cool pandemic hobbies.

She started baking sourdough years ago. She took up yoga and bouldering even before that. And when much of America was frantically googling "how to keep a plant alive," she was caring for her thriving vegetable garden and turning its cherry tomato harvest into a delicious and easy Caprese salad (served alongside fresh sourdough, of course).
