White-collar jobs are just as stressful as blue-collar jobs. Long work hours and work-life balance, to name a few are toxic to employees and destroys their health physically and emotionally.

In this episode, we talk about the book - Dying for a Paycheck: How Modern Management Harms Employee Health and Company Performance and What We Can Do About It with Anna Meiners.

  • The impact of working long hours
  • Busyness as a status symbol
  • Why people prefer to stay in harmful work environments
  • What employers can do to really make the shift from a toxic work environment to a healthy and better one
