The Slow Workplace: Principles from the slow movement can make employees healthier and happier


March 2020

Globally, slow movements have spread to multiple sectors. The Slow Food Movement, which initiated a cascade of offshoots, formed in the mid-1980s when Carl Petrini led protests against the opening of McDonald’s near the Spanish Steps in Rome. Slow Food defends good food, gastronomic pleasure, and a slower pace of life. It celebrates biodiversity and regional traditions. Many in the slow movement believe that speed is leading to misery and that, by intentionally slowing down, people can lead more fulfilling and meaningful lives. Slow workplace could be a powerful cultural shift and does not need to mean a less productive workplace.
