In June 2022, a number of British companies began trialling a working week based on 4 working days and 3 days off.
The trial continued until December 2022, and 92 percent of participating companies decided to keep the 4-day work week.
The trial involved 61 companies across the UK, with employees working 34 hours a day, 4 days a week, with no reduction in pay.
Out of 61 companies, 56 companies decided to keep the practice while 18 companies adopted it permanently.
This was the largest experiment in the world and the goal was to see what effect a 4-day work week and 3 days off would have on employee productivity.
The results were published after the trial by Autonomy, a British research institute.
A total of 2,900 employees participated in this trial and the results showed that their productivity improved.
People at the trial said that the new regime had a positive effect on their personalities and improved their work-life balance, while data showed that the 4-day work week policy resulted in fewer workers leaving.
The trial was held under the auspices of 4-Day Week Global, and in a statement released by it, it is said to be a revolutionary moment for the 4-Day Business Week movement.
According to the statement, the results prove that the experiment is indeed effective.
Employees who participated in the hearing said that the extra vacation is more important to them than the salary increase.
15 percent said that even a higher salary would not bring them back to a 5-day work week.
Data from the experiment showed that a 4-day work week can help to overcome the problem of labor shortage.
