Moving is, without question, one of life’s most stressful events. There are so many decisions to make, including what to take, and what to get rid of. In between those hectic hours of packing, cleaning, and figuring out whether or not that sofa is going to fit through the door, most people don’t have the time to consider what they are going to do with all the non-perishable food they have stocked up on over the years.
Translating the circular economy vision, in which everything is reused and nothing is wasted, into tangible business best practices is critical to addressing the needs of a sustainable future, yet it could be a challenging task for businesses that are just getting started.
In this first Work in Progress podcast, I sit down with Steve Preston, CEO of Goodwill Industries Intl., to discuss the nonprofit’s many training programs designed to help prepare people for work at many stages of their lives. I walked away impressed with all Goodwill does to help build a stronger workforce. I think you will, too.
