Host and Common Impact CEO Danielle Holly interviews fellow social impact champion Bea Boccalandro, President & Founder of VeraWorks. Bea coined the term “job purposing,” the concept of unlocking opportunities for employees to do societal good through their everyday jobs. She shares powerful stories of individuals finding purpose in their careers and tips on how to bring greater meaning to your workplace.
