South Korea to shut off computers at 8 PM to stop people working late

The government in South Korea’s capital is introducing a new initiative to force its employees to leave work on time – by powering down all their computers at 20:00 on Fridays.

Government employees there work an average of 2,739 hours a year – about 1,000 hours more than workers in other developed countries.
