A new study from the largest 4-day workweek pilot to date revealed (unsurprisingly) major benefits for both employers and employees. Across 61 UK-based companies, 3,000 employees took part in the pilot. The results were (to quote the study) “resoundingly positive.”
- 92% of companies who piloted the 4-day workweek decided to keep it long-term
- Burnout down by 71%
- Sick days down by 65%
- No loss in revenue
Momentum is building.
- The 4-day workweek is increasingly gaining press in top tier publications like The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, the BBC, the Washington Post, and others.
- In Maryland, a new, proposed bill would subsidize employers that try a 4-day workweek.
While the benefits of a 4-day workweek are increasingly well-documented, the real challenge is how to actually roll-out a 4-day workweek pilot and implement it. This is where Smart Workweek comes in.
