Rhythm is it!

  • The interval week: New paradigms in the world of work
  • Geist Heidelberg, In dialogue

The upheavals in 2020 have given an enormous boost to changes in the world of work: Demands for more flexibility and more individualisation, new working models and general changes in communication and organisation of work are on everyone’s lips and the working and living worlds of employees are becoming increasingly intertwined.

The question of when we work brings into play the consideration of our chronobiology, i.e. our inner rhythm, which silently structures our life. We do not work too much – we work wrongly, according to the authors’ thesis: In accordance with biological intervals, energies are released, but whoever has to work against his rhythm suffers from this opposition, ultimately works against himself, and in the worst case becomes ill.

A debate about the creative possibilities and limits of our working world in completely new times and in the face of new challenges.
