When trying to understand the world, we apply models to it, in order to quantify what we see. Different models are used to look at different things. A crucial point is understanding what models to apply at what resolution. A model which is well suited to say something about the population of a country may break down when increasing the resolution to looking at a city, or it may still hold true, but break down when trying to apply it to residents in a street, the inhabitants of a building, or individual men and women.
These days, the lists of the winners of the “Great Place to Work” award are being announced. I can understand that it is a title that a lot of companies want to lay claim to; after all, it makes them that much more competitive in the hunt for candidates, and it lets them push back on salary demands, arguing that they are, after all, a “Great Place to Work”. I have a problem with the award though. I think it is worthless as anything other than something to used to pat oneself on the back.
