The four-day workweek has potential benefits

The four-day workweek is a 32-hour workweek with no loss in productivity, pay, or benefits. 

Studies show that productivity decreases as the hours worked increase. Making 32 hours the norm instead of 40 can lead to improved well-being without losing work productivity. 

Many companies worldwide have adopted a four-day workweek. Japan's government has recommended a four-day week as a national policy.
