Would your company benefit from a 4 day work week? In the UK, as they deal with massive labor shortages, they are spending the next 6 months experimenting with giving workers and companies the 4 day work week experience. If you are thinking of trying this (several of the companies I work with have this policy currently successfully in place), here are 3 things to watch for.
1. Be clear what a productive week looks like to each employee and department. Have metrics in place to ensure productivity stays at the level needed.
2. Let your team know that as a company/ CEO you care about them and are doing this to provide them with the quality of work/ life balance they crave.
3. To create company loyalty and bonding… every once in a while partner with a local charity on that extra day, and give your team members the opportunity to volunteer to support your community as a group.
