Designing Meaningful Work to Build a Sustainable Company: An Interview with Eileen Fisher

Despite discussion of work-life balance, work is not something separate from our life, but integral to it. Good work is a critical component to a good life. As societies across the globe struggle with economic division and working people who feel left behind, can companies invent a world of work that is more sustainable? The Eileen Fisher company is a certified B corporation with profit sharing, employee ownership, and other benefits for its more than 1,100 employees, and an industry leader in areas such as human rights and environmental stewardship. The Aspen Institute's Maureen Conway will talk with Eileen Fisher about building her financially successful company, pursuing employee ownership, and helping the people in her company shape and be shaped by the company’s purpose.
