#030 - Nine Lies About Work Series: Lie #1

Today we kick off our Nine Lies About Work series in earnest with Lie #1 - People care which company they work for.

One of the core arguments in the first chapter is: Perks attract, teams retain.

When organizations recruit, they offer surface-level perks that are attractive in nature (fancy cafeterias, free dry cleaning, bring your dog to work, company name brand, etc.) which do a great job of getting the attention of prospective talent in a crowded market, but do little over time to actually retain that talent.

This happens because the individuals you end up working with have much more impact on your overall happiness and career growth than anything the organization can do at the macro-level. A terrible boss or toxic teammate chip away at any of the happiness material perks can hope to give.

In general, we feel this is a strong start to the book and are enjoying the series so far - we hope you are as well. Thanks for joining us today and don't forget to hit the subscribe button or reach out at hello@wannagrabcoffee.com.
