LISTENING AS WORK
Bureau for Listening conceives listening as work. Especially in the context of society as such; in the context of creating, developing and growing sustainable profitable business and relations.
Listening should be respected and compensated as work due the extraordinary value listening generates.
Bureau for Listening criticizes how listening and listeners often contribute unawarded. 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 it recognized as a vital service to perform and offer, as work.
Taking steps towards a recognizing of listening as work is a core element of Bureau for Listening’s mission.
Different projects, manuals etc. in this endeavour will be produced and shared accordingly.
