Is the four-day working week the future?
Are you sick of the five day grind? How does a four-day week sound?
Around the world, companies are trailing the four-day week, with one study in Iceland proving to be an “overwhelming success”. Researchers said that the trials, in which workers were paid the same amount for shorter hours, showed that productivity remained the same or even improved in most workplaces.
