Is a 4-day work week right for your company?
The concept of a 4-day work week has been around since The Great Depression, however, it has yet to be implemented on a larger scale. Studies have shown there are benefits of a 4 day work week such as an increase in productivity and a decrease in some overhead costs. Making 32 hours a normal work week instead of 40 might be just what companies need to improve their employees’ well-being, turnover, and retention.
There are challenges with a 4 day work week. For example, what is good for one individual may not be good for an entire team. Alex Pang gives insight on how we may be able to creatively get around these challenges.
