LISTENING AS WORK
Bureau for Listening criticizes how listening and listeners often contribute and generate value unawarded and compensated. We experience that the value of listening is often being overlooked or taken for granted, and we therefore strongly advocate for recognizing listening as work. We all appreciate and depend on the act of listening, but only rarely is listening recognized as a vital service to perform and offer, and as work.
Taking steps towards a recognizing of listening as work is a core element of Bureau for Listening’s mission.
