Work Time Reduction Webinar
The momentum building behind the shorter working week movement has been growing exponentially. In recent years it has spread all over the world in recent years, with more and more organizations from a diverse range of industries introducing reduced-hour schedules. This should not be a surprise; the evidence is building on the range of positive benefits that this new way of working brings. Reduced working time has been shown in numerous studies to result in improved, work- life balance, reduced work-related stress and burnout, and numerous other well-being benefits for employees. Organizations have successfully used a shorter working week to align their business objectives with the individual interests of employees, to create a more results-focused work environment, as well as a more motivated and efficient workforce. Moreover, as flexible working has become the norm in many industries and labor market competition has increased due to the impact of ‘The Great Resignation’, many companies are turning to the shorter working week as a vehicle to give them a competitive edge when it comes to talent attraction and retention.
