The switch to remote work at the height of the pandemic proved we can make some improvements to help reverse climate change. In 2019 the average commute time for Americans was 27.6 minutes each way. In 2020 this dropped significantly due to the switch to remote work. Because of that switch, the average American was able to reduce their carbon footprint by about 1800 pounds. But is remote work really part of the answer for helping climate change? What else can we do?

Is the grass really greener on the other side? Right now, there is an unprecedented number of people leaving their current jobs.

Employers on the other hand are trying to keep up with these changes while tending to their businesses needs. This week we speak with Robert Glazer from Acceleration Partners on what has been dubbed the Great Resignation.
