"Good report Frankie. Your conclusion is right, employees do matter, well-being is the key. ... Forget all this growth mumbo jumbo, it's not all 'work work work'! ... It's about work-life balance. Get yourself home, I'll get Clive to roll out some hard copies. ... He went home to play with his kids! I'll have words with him tomorrow! Frankie? Sorry, I need 500 copies, be a good chap."

'How I'd love Clive's "balance" right now.'


The world can be a complex place. See how Frankie and his colleagues at Global.org grapple with the thorny public policy issues of our time, in this cartoon strip.
