Four-day working week trial launches in the UK
BID TO MEASURE WHETHER EMPLOYEES ARE MORE PRODUCTIVE WITH LONGER WEEKENDS
LONGER WEEKENDS = MORE PRODUCTION?
A trial of a four-day working week has launched in the UK in a bid to measure whether employees are more productive with longer weekends.
There has been much debate for years over the benefits of a shorter working week and it appears more businesses are now willing to take the plunge, as the Covid-19 pandemic shifts the global work model perhaps for good.
Around 30 UK companies are taking part in a six-month trial of a four-day week, where employees will be paid the same amount as if they were working their usual five days.
