A hundred years ago, we moved from working six-day work weeks to five and we’re overdue an update.
With 63% of businesses reporting its easier to attract and retain talent with a 4-day work week, we’ve invited Charlotte Lockhart (Managing Director, The 4 Day Week) to share the benefits of a shorter working week, what to consider when making the change and how to bring it to your business.
The 4-day work week is a reduction in the work week from a standard 40 hours to 32 hours for the same pay and benefits. This reduction has been proven to work for employees and their employers with 78% of 4-day-work-week employees reporting they are happier, more productive and less stressed.
COVID-19 transformed the way we all work and made it clear we can find a better balance between work and life. As the war for talent ramps up, the demand for healthier work/life balances increases, and mental wellbeing claims its spot on the top of employer’s agendas, could the 4 day work week be the answer?
