Black Widow ist Marvels Wiedergutmachung für ein sexistisches Jahrzehnt

Wenn du „So eine will ich“ sagst, meinst du damit vielleicht eine schicke Armbanduhr, oder eventuell eine besonders appetitlich aussehende Pizza. In Iron Man 2 von 2010 sind das aber die Worte, die aus Tony Starks (Robert Downey Jr.) Mund kommen, nachdem er Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) zum ersten Mal trifft – und mit denen er uns schon darauf einstimmt, wie die Marvel-Charaktere seitdem größtenteils mit dem „sexy Avenger“ umgehen.  Natashas (alias Black Widows) erster Auftritt im Mar...

To Cope with Labor Shortage, Raise Emotional Compensation

The current labor shortage and employee retention are concerning issues for organizations. Many leaders are scrambling to attract and retain the workers they need. A combination of factors has resulted in an insufficient number of workers to meet available jobs: job quits hitting historic highs, declining immigration, and fewer individuals who are of working age (16-64 years old).

Podcast #719: The Surprising Pessimism of America’s Founding Fathers

Tim Cook, Jamie Dimon, and other CEOs say employees should return to the office because it boosts creativity. Experts say that's a 'fairy tale.'

A 2019 study found open floor plan offices had 70% fewer face-to-face interactions. Monkey Business Images/Shutterstock Business leaders like Jamie Dimon say office work is essential for "spontaneous idea generation."
