The Telegraph: Why you should join the slipperati and take your shoes off at work

The Telegraph: Why you should join the slipperati and take your shoes off at work

by Radhika Sanghani

Yet it is not just schools leading the way in the no-shoe movement. In Sweden, the country that gave us hygge and better shared paternity laws, slippers are now the footwear du jour in a growing number of start-ups and new companies.

David Brudo, the CEO and founder of mental health app Remente, was one of the first to create a no-shoe policy in his company’s offices in Gothenburg. “If you can have a relaxing office etiquette it can be very positive for workplace performance and how you experience stress and productivity,” explains the 37-year-old. “If you’re comfortable you’re less prone to feel stress and perform better.

“In Sweden you always take off your shoes when you get into a home. What happens is doing that communicates to your body and mind that you’re more at home and comfortable, so things get a bit more quiet and relaxed. You see the same benefits in the workplace.”
