“It is a myth that every company or that companies have to be conformist. And that there’s work that’s super boring.”
— Ephraim Freed, Riot Games
Your work isn’t boring – and your workplace doesn’t need to feel like 1984. In this episode we explore a fascinating new approach to employment that places your individuality at the centre; this is a world where you can bring yourself (warts and all) to work every day.
Paul Miller attempts to bring his whole self (which includes his old typewriter, apparently) to an inspiring conversation with Jessica Hunt, Digital Learning Lead at Adobe, and Ephraim Julius Freed, Internal Communications Manager at Riot Games. Together they delve into the essence of individuality throughout the “seasons” of your working life. Start from a spring search for meaning and an ideal workplace, and surf into the summer joys of freelancing and amazing teams. Then, nestle into autumnal delights of stripping away complexity to reveal the human within. Finally, learn to love the winter frost, which merely hides an evergreen soul always seeking the next big challenge.
