Most of us have a frantic work rhythm, doing more of one task at once with the wrong idea we are being more efficient. This is the point where personal life and working rhythm need to find a balance, and here is where the slow movement claims for the needs of the people. The slow movement was born in Italy 30 years ago with the concept of “slow food”, asking for time to enjoy healthy and natural food instead of industrial fast food, but not only as a product, but as a philosophy to reconquer the time we had lost for ourselves. Adapted to the labour work, we can find concepts such as slow company, slow management and the essence of our project, slow work.
This is the origin of SNAIL, based on the idea of the higher productivity of works made with calm, dedication, attention to details and enjoyment of the creative process. It is Slow, Necessary And Improves the Level: SNAIL.
SLOW, NECESSARY AND IMPROVES THE LEVEL
A vision to productivity and
employability through work pace and individual satisfaction at workplace
SNAIL philosophy is linked to the introduction of Emotional Intelligence in the workplace, cognitive flexibility and the development of social skills in the work world, those social skills the market is demanding today and which will be basic for workers, but also for companies, organizations and entrepreneurs in the next decade. Emotional Intelligence (in short, EI) is, according to Daniel Goleman “the capacity for recognizing our own feelings and those of others, for motivating ourselves, and for managing emotions well in ourselves and in our relationships.”
Motivation and creativity
SNAIL is doubled focused in the worker and the final product. For companies which follow this philosophy, the most important thing is to increase the level of motivation and creativity of their workers, thus the productivity will be higher and the possibilities of long-term employability will be better. At the same time, they are making clients happier than if they offered a massive but worse quality product. SNAIL bets for projects and products made with the maximum dedication, thinking in more profits for companies and more stable jobs, but also in the establishment of long-term professional relationships and increase of basic skills.
