WLP10 The World of Work in 2014

Join Pilar and Lisette for a much longer virtual coffee than usual, recapping some of 2014's work stories and picking some of the trends. 

Our starting point was a series of articles, so here they are, alongside the time codes of where we talk about them in the podcast. Do share with us your thoughts by commenting on this post or connecting via Twitter: @PilarOrti for myself and @lightling for Lisette.

We wish you all the very best for 2015!
