Olsson Center Senior Fellow Shawn Berman, Professor of Business & Society at the University of New Mexico Anderson School of Management, recently gave a talk on the “employer-employee relationship in the 21st century.” Berman was speaking to the Business Ethics Society, an undergraduate club at the University of Virginia.

He discussed how frontline employees are overworked and stressed in the U.S. and how they are often seen as simply “resources.” After presenting statistics on the present-day workforce, Berman noted that corporate CEO pay is 380 times that of the average worker. He asked the students if the rising inequality in society should be of concern. Using stakeholder management, he encouraged the students to think about the employer-employee relationship and its consequences for society.
