031: The 4-Day Work Week
Play • 19 min

As business owners, we want workers to not only get the work done, but also to stay motivated, engaged, and creative. Unfortunately, some companies and workers still believe that working long hours is the only way to be profitable and productive. 


 The 4-day workweek trials taking place around the world are challenging that misconception, however. While also reducing the risk of burnout and employee attrition. 

While it comes with benefits,  implementing a 4-day workweek does come with challenges and compliance hurdles.  For instance, there are wage and hour laws you need to comply with. This path also requires some cultural change, an immense amount of planning, and most importantly, the buy-in from top management. 


In this episode, we discuss the data that supports the benefits of a 4-day workweek as well as what you need to consider should you decide to implement it. 


In this episode, you will hear:

  • Data supporting the benefits of a four-day workweek
  • Legal and compliance considerations
  • Defining what a 4-day workweek is for your company
  • Internal policies and workplace culture
  • The principle of reciprocity
  • Ensuring a successful flexible workplace scheduling
  • Communicating with your clients
