At the invitation of creative agency Boomerang, our own Robin van der Meulen was a guest in an interview session about ”Workism”:
Is work our new religion?
In this interview, three experts shared their vision. Robin as Strategic Happiness Expert, an enthusiastic entrepreneur (recovered from a burnout) and a monk! They immersed themselves in questions such as:
- Does work play too great a role in our ‘’meaning’’?
- What role should work play in our lives?
- How has this crisis had an impact on how people think about work?
- How do we look at the future of working?

”The second Boomerang Talks was all about “work”. In many ways, work replaces the role that religion and spirituality have traditionally played in our lives. Today, it is our work that gives us a purpose. This paradigm shift has made us more stressed than ever and many people are experiencing burnout. During this Boomerang Talk, we tried to answer the question, “Is work our new religion?” While the answer cannot be summed up in a few sentences, this blog provides a nice summary that only stimulates watching the video interview!”
