We work so hard for productivity and then what do we do? We fill our time with more work.
Why do we do that and how do we make sure to do what’s meaningful?

- Dennis Nørmark

Welcome back to this week’s episode where we bring back our Global Denmark Podcast Alumni, Dennis Nørmark.

In this episode, we talk about what work value actually is, how organizations and individuals can navigate pseudo-work, how we can come back to a more meaningful work-life after the pandemic, and why it’s important for managers to return to a more Danish way of leading organizations.
