Do you know Melly Shum? Melly is the person who represented on an iconic billboard in Rotterdam (Netherlands). The billboard has been around for over twenty years. When you look at Melly in the picture, she looks like any other employee in your organization, but here’s the thing: according to the billboard, Melly Shum hates her job!
Melly became the icon representing Happy Melly which is a professional network with a shared purpose: to be a global network of businesses and individuals dedicated in some way to helping people be happier at work.
According to a Gallup poll from a few years back, Melly is not alone. Over seventy percent of employees in the United States hate their job! Five years ago, for one of the rare times in my 20+year career, I hated my job too.
