The pandemic has forced us to take a hard look at the modern workplace.
Options such as all-remote or hybrid are becoming part of work mainstream. Another idea is shrinking the workweek. Proponents argue that the reduced hours working model can address current work negatives and make employees more productive, happier and healthier.
The standard workweek of 40 hours is not set up for efficiency. Energy cannot be sustained for a solid eight hours per day.
Research shows people get more done when they work fewer hours. One high-profile study in Iceland found that productivity remained the same or improved when working either 35 or 36 hour weeks.
Working fewer hours leads to happier, healthier, and more engaged workforces.
There are different models for a shorter workweek. The four-day week reduce working hours by 20%. Everyone at a company might take the same day off, or people can take two afternoons off. Or, the workweek can be reduced from 40 to 36 hours. Importantly is that salaries remain the same.
Shorter working hours won't work for every role in every industry. While experts urge to exercise caution when implementing these models, they also think now could be the best time to try.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
