Podcast: Busyness & the 40 Hour Work Week
In this episode, we discuss the notion of busyness at work. It is quite common for people to pretend to be busy, whether it is George Costanza’s method of always looking annoyed to people leaving binders open on their desks, pretending to be busy is actually counterproductive for employee job satisfaction and job performance. It also can impair business success.
More importantly, we challenge the notion of the 40 hour work week. Is it time for this archaic practice to end for most office style jobs? Absolutely.
