4 day week starting to gain some traction.


(Or Google: "Get ready for the four-day working week" to get the open link to the FT article)

Yes, jda, spot on about Cummings. Very much a lightweight, with delusions about himself. But he clearly manages to convince people who should know better.

Interesting article fozzy. I think chefs would still do 60 hours on a 4 day week, it’s a very hours intensive job

Its not just chefs, Fields. Other professions too

And the point of it is that it's not that you take the y hours you'd work in 5 days and cram it into 4, its pro-rata, for the same pay.

The studies show that people get the same work done as it cuts down on unproductive time/sick days etc etc.

However, jobs where they are employing people to do a 6 day job in 5 days will have to reconsider.

Mainly because those people will leave to go to jobs with better work-life balance.

It's happening in the NHS and academia won't be far behind if they don't change.

I certainly hope it becomes commonplace in my lifetime. Particularly as working on trains when commuting and “doing emails in the evening” seems to be expected by many employers.

Got something to say?
