Consuming Issues: Do perks help you decide which job to take? Listen to Joe Wiggins

As most of us spend a majority of our waking hours at work, we want to enjoy our time in the office as much as we possibly can and so perks and benefits are an invaluable tool to help attract employees through the door.

Consuming Issues: Is the traditional 9-5 job not the preferred option among the workforce anymore? Listen to Dan Collier
Today's workforce is more fragmented than previous generations. The traditional '9-5' job is not as favoured as it once was with other types of work arrangements quickly gaining in popularity. More and more people are choosing self-employment and temporary work for a better work-life balance. Temporary workers now make up a third of the average company’s work force. Dan Collier, chief executive of Elevate, spoke with Georgie.

There's a small chance that a natural disaster or medical emergency is not going to ruin on your trip but is it really worth paying for? Daisy Parker from Abta spoke with Georgie.
