For the love of Fika â
A lovely Nordic tradition, Fika is Swedish for a coffee break but is much more than having a coffee. It's about taking a break from work/school and spending some time socialising, often accompanied by cinnamon buns, cakes, and cookies. Fika can happen at any time of the day, anywhere. ð
I wish Indian work culture could absorb this beautiful concept but it seems almost impossible for a culture where employees work 9-10 hours a day. Working over time/weekends is unavoidable but you don't get paid for it. If you're the type to leave quickly as your shift is over, you are a lousy employee because you are not as 'dedicated' as the people who stay back for hours even though they don't do much. If you don't answer your phone or open your laptop at night, you are not doing your job properly. Take a tea break longer than 15 mins and you'll have an email in your inbox or a long hard stare. All these things have turned the 9 hours of job into the most hateful part of the day.
Our work culture is fucked because of employees who are just 'okay' with it and treat it like a part of the job. They might think staying neutral works better than questioning it but in doing that, all of them become enablers. And when you're not an enabler, chances are you are soon to be chucked out. Catch 22 much?
There's no conclusion to this, just exhausted and depressed employees.
