Workday “Dead Zone”

The Workday “Dead Zone” is a Fake Problem

But let’s be very clear: those aren’t real problems. They’re problems with perspective — and indicative of an organizational structure that privileges the exceptional requests and convenience of those with power over the everyday needs of everyone else.
