How we want to work

On self-determination and self-exploitation

From the bedroom to the zoom meeting … Why we need to learn to set boundaries for work

Corona has not only turned the world upside down, but also our working lives. For many, the way to the office was from the bathroom to the kitchen, the social environment was limited to the family, and important e-mails were written when the children were finally in bed. The double burden hit working mothers especially hard. Sara Peschke is one of them. In her book, she dismantles the enthusiasm for the home office as self-deception. Flexibility and freedom were the great promises, but for many people they have given way to permanent stress and self-exploitation. With her book, she puts her finger in the wound, because even after Corona, the home office will be with us.
