Work-Life Fusion: A Guide to Freedom and Autonomy at Work

Wednesday, February 28, 2018 at 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Mann Library, 160
Cornell University Mann Library, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA

As technology catapults us into the future, the way we manage work and life is changing rapidly. As we move away from the traditional paradigm of work-life balance and enter the era of the fused work environment, there can often be misunderstandings between managers and direct reports as well as among coworkers.

Work and life spheres are becoming fused, especially for Millennials, and with three generations making up the majority of the workforce, relationships with colleagues of different ages can often be challenging.

In a Chats in the Stacks book talk, Donna L. Haeger, Ph.D., professor of practice at the Charles H. Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management, will discuss how people can better understand each other so they can experience successful interactions at work and improve job satisfaction. Her insightful new book, Work-Life Fusion: A Guide to Freedom and Autonomy at Work, offers advice on developing policies related to technology used in the workplace.

Light refreshments served.

The book talk series at Mann Library is supported by the Mary A. Morrison Public Education Fund.
