Living And Working To 100

Shai Reshef discussed University of the People, which he recently founded as the world’s first tuition-free online university dedicated to the global advancement and democratization of higher education. “Already, over a thousand students from 119 countries are enrolled in degree programs for business administration and computer science,” said Reshef, who told me afterward that professors from top academies volunteer as faculty, and that they are planning for 10,000 students by 2015. University of the People partners with New York University, Yale Law School, Hewlett-Packard, and others.

Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos, advises companies to concern themselves with making employees happy as well as customers. “By creating a vision with a higher purpose, you can generate greater revenues in the longer term,” said Hsieh, author of Delivering Happiness: A Path To Profits, Passion, And Purpose. In contemplating a long life with many more years of work, I can certainly imagine that most people will prefer to work in a positive environment with people whose values they share.

Companies might want to heed Hsieh’s advice. Although it's an employers' market, companies still seek to recruit and retain the best employees. As a managing partner once said, "Attrition is a concern even though only a limited number of associates can progress to partner. Because the firm wants to make the choices of who stays and who goes."
