Boreout in the new world of work
In the introductory chapter we ask, on one hand, the term “stress”: Is it possible at all that we talk about under-challangement and boredom at work? On the other hand, we present you a check list to help you find out, if you or even your colleagues at work are stuck in the boreout mess.
  The most important boreout spots in the office
Are you used to observing your colleagues at work, colleagues who always seem to be stressed, but of whom you don’t exactly know what they do all day long? Read in this excerpt about the four locations Erika defined in the office, in order to kill time. An impressive and foremost true story!
