One of the things I love about my job here at exaqueo is the fact that I get to be a fly on the wall at other people’s work. We conduct focus groups with employees all the time. We talk to people of all different levels, job functions, ages, races, backgrounds, and so on. We get the opportunity to dig into their workspace, talk to leadership teams, and understand workplace dynamics.
Work is a part of everyone’s life. It’s where some of us spend the majority of our day. And in some cases, we see or talk to our coworkers more than our own families! We also get caught up in our own work worlds very easily. Wouldn’t it be kind of cool to learn about what other people do and why they love it? Think of it as your own opportunity to be a fly on the wall of someone else’s job.
Lars Schmidt, Founder of Amplify Talent, recently launched a weekly podcast called, “Best Part of My Job.” According to Lars, “The idea is to highlight different careers and share stories about what someone in that job does, how that career progresses, and wisdom from people doing that work.”
Ever wonder what an entrepreneur goes through in his job? What does a Barber Shop owner have to say about his experience? The show will feature a very human side of work – people sharing stories from their careers in a variety of different fields.
It’s a great question to ponder…what IS the best part of your job? Find out what others have to say by checking out the show each week.
