Over-worked people cost companies time and money, because they increase need for health care and time off
"Swedish culture has taken a step further lately, by making moves towards a six-hour working day. In many of the organizations and companies that have made the change, they’ve noticed that their staff are happier, more productive and more creative, which proves the point that if the employees feel better, they’ll actually do better work. It’s a win-win situation.
Burned-out people cost companies and society time and money. They need healthcare, time off work, replacements have to be recruited and trained. Rested, enthusiastic staff members feel positive about their workplaces and can be passionate about their jobs."
