"The cult of overwork," written by James Surowieki, details how firms on Wall Street are curbing their employees hours to garner more effective work habits.
“Overwork has become a credential of prosperity,” wrote Surowieki. However, he quotes the global co-head of investment banking at Goldman Sachs, David Soloman as saying, “overworked people become less efficient and less effective.”
