(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Millennials — the 20 and early 30-somethings that everyone is talking about; who are closely linked to technology’s rapid ascent; and who are expected to make up 50 percent of the workforce by 2020 — have become more than a demographic age group. They are associated with a new way of looking at the world, possessing a mindset that says there has to be a way to make life easier, faster, more flexible and efficient, a way to make the way we interact with the world more personal, inclusive and intuitive. Their thinking also permeates into their attitudes about working life.

Five years ago, a salary was expected to be...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – It’s now a moral and economic crisis when many young Americans graduate from high school without being on a pathway to a well-paying job. In Greater New Orleans, nearly one in five young people are neither working or in school. The region is home to the third largest population of disconnected youth in the U.S., where nearly 40 percent of of the children live in poverty and few students have exposure to good-paying, high-demand careers. All this is in conflict with the growing industries in Greater New Orleans, which require a more skilled workforce.

Sadly, there is a big disconnect between growing industries and...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – In the US, there is no federal paid parental leave (or maternity), making it one of the few developed countries in the world lacking state support for new parents, though many states have their own systems. However, corporate policies can be very generous and Diageo, the global leader in beverage alcohol, has been recognised as one of the best places to work for new American dads by Fatherly, the digital lifestyle guide for men entering parenthood. Diageo was selected for the ...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – It is predicted that one in four of us will be affected by mental illness in a year. Though the effects are as real as a broken arm, it is an invisible and silent illness. This is why Mental Health Awareness Week 2016 took place in the UK from 16-22 May, to help raise awareness about this taboo issue. This year’s theme is "relationships."

Mental illness is still surrounded by a certain prejudice, ignorance and fear. These negative attitudes mean it is harder for mental health suffers to work, make friends and live a normal...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Do you know much about the “Mumpreneur” economy? These are businesses run by mothers with children under 18, which generated a staggering, £7.2bn for the U.K. economy in 2014 supporting over 200,000 jobs! Now this figure is set to rise to £9.5bn by 2025, according to research by EBay. Mums behind the nation's small businesses are becoming a powerful economic force in the U.K. Being able to run a business alongside bringing up children could be deemed a perfect job, giving more of a flexible...

(3BLMedia/Justmeans) – Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, and one of the poorest countries in the developing world. Its per capita income of $250 is considerably less than one-tenth the Latin American average. So, when a positive and unique story comes along about empowering local mothers, you immediately want to share that story. It is about how scrap fabric from the acclaimed Herman Miller, the global furniture designer and manufacturer, is being put to good use, and has initiated a circular economy by helping women in Haiti earn money to keep their children.

It all started...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – What would you say, if you knew that only one in five U.K. small businesses are majority-woman owned and yet contribute over £75 billion to the country’s economy? Or that if women set up businesses at the same rate as men, there would be a significant boost to the U.K.’s economic growth. These thought provoking statistics are revealed in the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) latest report,...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – There is growing concern about the levels of diversity in major companies, revealing that there is still a mountain to climb when it comes to ethnicity in the U.K. workplace. New figures reveal that FTSE 100 businesses lost 40 Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) leaders in a year, and will lose another 35 this year if the trend carries on. These bleak facts were highlighted with the announcement of the Top 100 Black and Minority Ethnic Leaders in U.K. Business List at the House of Lords on 26 April. The list was drawn up by an independent...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – Before the onset of a 27 year-long civil war in Angola, Africa, it was the world's fourth largest coffee producer, a top exporter of sisal, sugarcane, banana and cotton, and self-sufficient in all food crops except wheat. However, during the civil war, plantations and fields were abandoned as millions of people were displaced, infrastructure like roads were damaged, crops and livestock destroyed or stolen, irrigation systems fell into disrepair and the rural economy collapsed. Agricultural production came to a near standstill and since then though this country is back on...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) – The UK’s The Sunday Times has announced that rock super-star Sir Elton John and best-selling author JK Rowling are Britain’s most benevolent celebrities on the newspaper’s 2016 ‘Giving List’, each donating a large part of their fortune to charities. Golfer Rory McIlroy, global boy-band One Direction and Queen musicians Brian May and Roger Taylor also featured among the top celebrity givers. Almost 178 of the 1,000 people in the Sunday Times Rich List have donated at least a £1 million to charity...
