4DAYS work week

May 12, 2022 | Bez kategorii, Insights

While the 4 day workweek is gaining big momentum, a European tech startup presents the results of its experimental 9 months trial project on the subject.

The 4 day week seems like it has been coming any day for the last dozen months. However, until today, besides theoretical considerations there was a small amount of reliable data.  After 9 months of the 4 day workweek trial – supported by researchers and psychologists – the tech startup A4BEE shares its findings and recommendations.

“During the trial the number of meetings decreased by 10% and employees’ well-being increased by 35.7%” said Karolina Marzantowicz, the Chief of Growth in A4BEE. 

KEY HIGHLIGHTS

  • The idea behind the four-day workweek is to achieve the same results in less time so that people have more time to pursue other interests, spend time with loved ones, and manage their lives.
  • Employees who work a four-day workweek rate their overall lives as better, and their well-being has increased by 35.7%
  • Being accountable for results, rather than hours worked, means that there is no need to cut salaries or benefits. This is a significant shift in the way people think about and approach work and is a precursor to standardizing a shorter and flexible workweek.
  • Employees are different and have diverse needs and expectations.
  • Flexible working conditions and open, trusting culture are the most valued benefits and are correlated with higher employee engagement. And this is where employers should concentrate.
