The "Front Lines"

Even the troops in the trenches during the First World War were periodically replaced by other units so those who'd been in the front lines could enjoy some time away from the front and, at least to whatever extent it was possible, recuperate.

I think of that when seeing high-pressure jobs in which there are no efforts to provide escape and where the overall culture promotes seldom taking leave.

As the maxim goes, organizations get the results they are designed to get.

Don't just examine individual cases, look at the design and the culture.
