NEW YORK, April 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Ladders, Inc., a leading professional careers site, today announced the launch of its new digital publication. Helmed by editorial director Ryan Sager and editor-in-chief Heidi N. Moore, Ladders News provides news, analysis, and commentary across a wide range of work, career, and management-related topics, from office culture and gender issues, to interview and job advancement skills, to productivity, technology, and breaking news events.
Ryan Sager, previously of TIME, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Post, will serve as editorial director, overseeing a team of seven editors and reporters. At The Wall Street Journal, Sager developed and launched Review, the popular WSJ Weekend section devoted to books and ideas — home to essays including the Journal's most-read story of 2011 on "Tiger Parenting," 2012's most-read story on French parenting, Bill Gates's "Plan To Fix the World's Biggest Problems," and Marc Andreessen's "Why Software Is Eating the World."
Acclaimed financial journalist Heidi N. Moore, formerly of The Wall Street Journal, Mashable, and The Guardian's US edition, will serve as editor-in-chief, overseeing the daily reporting of news, profiles, and features for the new publication, focused on how work changes our lives and the world around us. At The Guardian, Moore launched the US Business and Money sections and revamped the business coverage at Mashable to include closer looks at the humans behind the businesses.
"We spend a third or more of our lives at work, yet office life tends to get treated as an afterthought," said Ryan Sager, editorial director. "We see the workplace as the day-to-day arena of human achievement, a place where small personal battles are won and lost every hour."
"We aim to cover the world of work as news every single day," said Heidi N. Moore, editor in chief. "Our jobs change who we are. We want to bring readers the human stories of success and struggle, and we're arming you to improve your work life with news, analysis, advice, and wit."
