Work smarter, not longer

A work psychologist at the University of Aalborg said that there has been too much focus on the notion that Danes need to work more hours. As the government prepares to release the results from its now-corrected Produktivitetskommission report, Einar Baldvin Baldurrsson said that working longer hours isn't the golden ticket to increasing productivity. He said that breaks from stress actually improve a worker's output and that instead of working longer hours, employees should work smarter and be motivated so that they feel their job has a meaning. – Politiken
