The 4-Day Work Week!

Many people already have a four day work week. But here’s one with a twist. A company in New Zealand experimented with a four day work week in which it paid employees for a full 40-hour week but required them to only work 32! After two months, the employees reported an improved work/life balance, lower stress, and increased productivity. In addition, two hour meetings were cut down to 30 minutes. Even better, after the experiment, employees were given the option to stay on a four-day week, or work shorter hours over five. On the downside, employees complained that the shorter week also left them with less time to waste company time on Facebook!
