February 7, 2012

In addition to Butterfly Careers, for the past few months I worked for a public grantmaker.  For many reasons, which I will spare you, the position was not a great fit for me. I decided to leave the position on my own accord. However, the experience has gotten me thinking a lot about what makes a work culture appealing?

I just read a couple of articles I found particularly interesting. One highlights, Workplace Trends to Watch in 2012. Upon reading this list, I realized how few of these trends had been adopted at my previous employer and I realized how these trends can really contribute to creating a more satisfying work culture. Food for thought.

Second, I have been hearing alot about the website, Pinterest. I hadn’t given it much thought but stumbled upon this article, How Pinterest is Becoming the Next Big Thing in Social Media for Business. The landscape of social media is continuing to shift so quickly. I find it helpful when anyone can shed some light on why a new technology can be useful to business or individuals.

I hope these articles provide some perspective to you.
