A mission for journalism in a time of crisis

In a turbulent era, the media must define its values and principles, writes Guardian editor-in-chief Katharine Viner

No former period, in the history of our Country, has been marked by the agitation of questions of a more important character than those which are now claiming the attention of the public.” So began the announcement, nearly 200 years ago, of a brand-new newspaper to be published in Manchester, England, which proclaimed that “the spirited discussion of political questions” and “the accurate detail of facts” were “particularly important at this juncture”.

    I have been working at Guardian News & Media full-time

    Pros

    Clear purpose and values for everyone working here. Great, talented colleagues and a close relationship to the journalism. Great location also and international opportunities,

    Cons

    Sometimes departments can work in silos and you find overlap of work. Not a clear progression framework for the majority of the organisation (except in Digital). Strategies are often decided higher up with little opportunity for input.

    Advice to Management

    Use the talent in the building and don't take for granted the loyalty of your employees. Champion star people and don't funnel everyone through the same progression (i.e. not everyone should manage people)
