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?
