"Decisions about ways of working must depend less on the personal attitudes and preferences of leaders, and more on the ways of working that best support people to be productive." Thanks @lyndagratton @thetimes

Working families are a ticking time bomb.

Over the last 80 years, families have seen a shift in the balance of their household paid/unpaid ratios.

Many of us spend eight hours a day working, and if we have no one to talk to about what we are struggling with or celebrating, it creates the foundation of loneliness.
