A series of episodes that look at databases and the world from a data professional’s viewpoint. Written and recorded by Steve Jones, editor of SQLServerCentral and The Voice of the DBA.

I work for a great company, one that I feel cares about me as more than a “resource”, gives me opportunities (with responsibility and accountability), and has some nice benefits. I actually used one of those last week. I get a volunteer day every year, where I can spend time with a charity and get the day off. I used mine to volunteer for Habitat for Humanity in Denver.

During the last two years, Redgate has approached the pandemic and remote work with the idea that we need to be reasonable with each other. We need to understand that some employees might have more people in their homes during work hours and may need to provide care for others. They might have other challenges, or just be struggling to cope. We were asked to work with people, rather than against them, and try to support each other as best we could. I think it worked out well, and it showed us that company cares about us.
