British companies trialling a four-day working week have mostly decided to stick with it after a six-month pilot in what campaigners for better work-life balance view as a breakthrough…
Employees at 61 companies across Britain worked an average of 34 hours across four days between June and December 2022, while earning their existing salary.
Of those, 56 companies, or 92%, opted to continue like that, 18 of them permanently…
Most companies involved, across different sectors and sizes with 2,900 staff overall, said productivity was maintained.
Staff said their well-being and work-life balance had improved while data showed employees were much less likely to quit their jobs as a result of the four-day week policy.
Brits are way too sensible.
One thought on “4-Day work week here to stay”
For more than a decade-and-a-half, I had a four-day workweek, though it did entail a double-shift every Saturday. The schedule did allow me to devote one day a week to my own writing and literary submissions, much of it resulting in what you can find on my blogs or the novels at Smashwords and Amazon. Hope others find the pace as liberating.
