At Supercell, a mobile game development company based in Helsinki, Finland, employees receive five weeks of paid vacation annually and are encouraged to go home at 5:00 pm. All employees, not just the founders and managers, get stock options. They work in small teams \u2014 called \u201ccells\u201d - that develop a game autonomously and have control over its fate. If cells decide that the game they\u2019re working on is not turning out to be top-notch, and that they should kill it even though that means throwing away months of work, they can decide to do that, no management approval required. All that is asked is that they share what they\u2019ve learned in the process with the rest of the company. I ponder this excerpt from Anu Partanen\u2019s book The Nordic Theory of Everything: In Search of a Better Life while sitting in the downtown Toronto coffee shop FIKA. \u201cFika\u201d is a Swedish word whose basic meaning is \u201cto have coffee\u201d but whose common cultural meaning involves employees gathering and socializing over coffee and pastries to discuss both private and professional affairs. As opposed to a Canadian work break where we might dash to the nearest Tim Horton\u2019s or Starbucks to grab a coffee to go, fika in Sweden signifies a leisurely work break taken together with colleagues (and not uncommonly, management) away from the office, to sit, talk and enjoy one another\u2019s company over a cup of coffee. In Swedish workplaces, it can even be considered impolite not to join one\u2019s colleagues at fika.
