Bringing Yourself to Work – The On-Premise IT Roundtable

The Premise: There’s value to the business in bringing your personal interests to work in IT.

Today’s show discusses when you can bring your personal life into IT. We discuss if doing so is just a way to reduce burnout, or if there is legitimate business value to be found. We touch on how to approach supposed “third rail” topics and more.

Be sure to checkout Leon Adato’s book discussed in the episode, The Four Questions Every Monitoring Engineer is Asked.
