Happiness at work (in France)

An unusual link this morning – an 85 minute French documentary called Le bonheur au travail.  I worked in Brussels for five years, so my French was quite good – 30 years ago.  But even with my rusty French I found I could understand most of what was discussed.  It provides a good review of how work was originally organised (along military lines) and why this may not be relevant in modern society.  One of its advantages is that it provides a francophone view of operations and organisations (traditional and bureaucratic?) – a perspective that is different to the overwhelming anglophone view we are normally exposed to.

PS The French is a lot easier to understand in this documentary than in Engregages (Spiral) – the police drama on BBC4.
