A friend of mine shared a Forbes’ magazine news which leaned over the business culture in Portugal. Nadim Habib, professor of Nova SBE, stressed that Portuguese employees worked too many hours in an inefficient way. As a storyteller, I came up with a narrative of a regular day in an office by telling the story of Manel (a typical Portuguese male name). He makes an effort to be more productive albeit his wishful thinking doesn’t go too far. In fact, Manel’s boss and co-workers end up censuring him. The satire finishes with a key message.
Moral of the story
“Value creation doesn’t depend on the number of working hours but on the productivity and happiness of employees.”
