for Social Change
^Fika is a service connecting workers to other people who have outside perspectives, by encouraging habitual, social breaks.
Fika is a service that encourages workers to get outside perspectives on their relationship with work, through facilitated, habitual, social breaks, and guided introspection.
By slowing down and having these conversations, workers can reflect on their relationships, and alleviate the isolating effects of burnout and overwork. By having someone relatable to talk to, workers build out a network of support.
The building of relationships and trust depends on the time spent in proximity to one another. ^Fika, which takes its name from the Swedish cultural tradition, encourages workers to consistently take the time to grab a coffee with a friend or colleague.
