I really enjoyed this article and would love to see more companies encouraging some of these practices!
At my last employer, the approach was “work, work, work & work some more” and I have never been more unproductive and burned out in my entire life than I was in the 9 months of working there. There were never enough hours in the day to finish everything. Needless to say, I quit (as did other people).
Life is too short to be miserable every day.
