You’ll never look at 911 call operators the same again: Often the first point of communication in any emergency (in developed economies, at least), 911 operators are tasked with the hard job of getting enough information to send in the necessary authorities. In Netflix’s new original movie, The Guilty, a former police officer turned operator (played by none other than Jake Gyllenhaal) is put to the test after he gets a call from a woman in trouble. The kidnapped woman is beside her assailant in most of the calls and tries to communicate her emergency by talking to her daughter while the police are on the phone. The one-man-show movie sees Gyllenhaal try and piece together the events and location to save the woman in a psychological thriller that is driven by a series of harrowing phone calls. The film is the American version of Gustav Moller’s Danish award-winning film Den skyldige. Polygon is out with a review.

💡 UNDER THE LAMPLIGHT-

How organizations can implement an anti-burnout strategy for their employees: Self-care in the form of yoga and breathing techniques are all well and good, but wellbeing expert Jennifer Moss argues that these are just a band-aid applied to a bigger problem that often emanates from the workplace. In The Burnout Epidemic, she argues that workplaces should take the lead in developing strategies that reduce burnout among their workforce by finding ways to measure it and combat it on a case-by-case basis. With fascinating research, new studies conducted during the pandemic, and interviews with international business leaders, The Burnout Epidemic offers actionable advice for a phenomenon that should be on every manager’s radar.
