Seventy companies in Britain are now trying out a shorter work week. It is a six-month trial started by a non-profit community called 4 Day Week Global. The four-day week movement aims to raise business productivity, improve workers’ health, and build stronger social and family ties. It believes that if workers work fewer days in a week, there will be fairer opportunities for women. It will be good for the planet too.
