D.B. Hubbard of Talking New Media writes about Quartz at Work, the new site from Quartz that covers business news in the workplace.
Hubbard writes, “The site is about ‘being a better manager, building a career, and navigating the modern workplace,’ according to its About Us page.
“Not so much as a new B2B website as it is a complimentary site for Quartz’s general business coverage.
“‘Quartz believes that management reporting is due for a reinvention. Quartz at Work exists to serve readers in the open space between individual entrepreneurs’ blog posts and traditional management journals—engaging with the most interesting ideas and practices around the world,’ Heather Landy, editor of Quartz at Work told TNM in an email exchange. ‘Quartz readers are post-national, ascendant professionals who are savvy about technology, finance, and the global business landscape, and are probably balancing many pursuits outside of work, including their families, and they’re not currently served by content that’s truly in sync with all of that.’
“‘Quartz at Work will report on the workplace in a way that people experience, but don’t often read about, with the aim of growing communities around these topics. Our editorial obsessions include productivity and creativity, workplace inclusion, the design of organizations, the art of managing others, and the purpose of companies.'”
