The 10 Must-Read Articles for Recruiters This Week

October 4, 2019

In this week’s list of our must-read articles for talent professionals, you’ll find two American history lessons. One examines the brief rise and faster fall of paid childcare for American working mothers and the other highlights how, pre-recession, three women almost broke the glass ceiling of Wall Street’s biggest banks. And speaking of the 2008 recession, it’s looking like Gen Z learned a lesson or two from the financial crisis — lessons that may reshape the way all of us work, no matter when we were born.

The list also offers an argument for bringing your whole self to work, visual representations of the world’s gender gap, observations of how the suit went from mandatory work attire to a sign of trouble, and an uplifting company story that brings delicious ice cream and pay transparency together.
