Curious Saturday: The case for a 4-day work week.
Do you know what fits your company?
The traditional approach to work needs a redesign, says economist Juliet Schor. She’s leading four day week trials in countries like the US and Ireland, and the results so far have been overwhelmingly positive: from increased employer satisfaction and customer satisfaction to revenue growth and lower turnover.
Making the case for a four-day, 32-hour work week (with five days of pay), Schor explains how this model for the future of work could address major challenges like burnout and the climate crisis — and shares how companies and governments could work together to make it a reality.
