GitHub Work Culture (people change jobs because of burn out, how to prevent burn out while still working hard?)

A colleague pointed me at this little meme:

Most company work spaces would destroy what they have to say as dangerous, claiming that it would never work.  The interesting thing is that it does work for GitHub, and it works very well.

For me it reminds me of something a very good manager once taught me; the role of a manager is to create and protect the environment and culture for productive software development. It only takes one manager to ignore that advise to damage or destroy the soul of a work place and GitHub has pushed back hard against that decay in thought provoking ways.
