Making Work More Human - A Q&A with ex-KPMG Partners 11/6

I am still in the office answering your questions and really enjoying it (it is 9 pm in London!). Does it count as long hours?

I am on the tube on the way home - just sat next to someone who was having a bag of chips (french fries) so now feeling hungry!

I’ve been in a conference all day, so I am catching up on the conversation. Do you have any suggestions for disrupting our US culture that insists work hours=revenue? I feel like only life experience has taught me that more disciplined boundaries are the real difference in efficiency. #worksmarternotlonger

I remember when I worked in Denmark and stayed late quite a few days (to show I was working hard 🙄) and my boss one day asked me why I was so unproductive and was having such a hard time doing my job. I never stayed unnecessarily late again, I can tell you. The culture coming from the top is key! But I think you also need to change pricing mechanism. While time&materials and utilisation targets exists, one will do more hours than needed.
