The four-day workweek has been a topic of discussion for many years. Some believe it could increase employee productivity and job satisfaction, while others worry about potential downsides, including decreased output or a lack of availability.
Recently, several companies put the idea of a four-day workweek to the test and the results have been largely positive. Many U.K. companies found that employees who worked four days instead of five were happier, less stressed and more productive. So, while the idea of a shorter workweek may still be controversial, it’s clear that there are potential benefits to exploring this approach.
