030 - Dell's RTO power move, Novo Nordisk on stress and BCG's latest report

Episode 30,   Apr 10, 12:57 PM

To say that March has been eventful is an understatement. It was difficult to pick just three, but here are our top picks from the month gone by. Dell's move to block promotions for its remote workers is something we did not expect. 

Does this set the stage for others to follow suit? Novo Nordisk, on the other hand, is doing everything it can to bring down its stress levels. Currently at an already enviable 14%, the target is to bring it down to under 10%. Lastly BCG's latest report tells us which benefit pays for itself.

Join Ankita & Apoorva as they tackle these three events along with an insight into the other topics that didn't make the cut as well along with some fun facts and a glimpse of what's coming in our next episode. April is looking promising already.
