How the 4-day Workweek Could Increase Employee Productivity

4-day workweek employee experience performance management Mar 29, 2023

The 4-day workweek is an alternative work schedule that has been gaining popularity in recent years. Advocates of this schedule posit that it increases employee productivity and job satisfaction while reducing fatigue and employee turnover.

On the surface, the idea of a four-day workweek seems too good to be true: employees get more time for leisure activities and family obligations, while employers still get the same output as a traditional five-day workweek.

Proponents of the 4-day workweek cite various benefits. For one, they claim that when employees have more time to relax outside of work, they're more energized and motivated when they return to work, making them more productive.

From an employer's perspective, the 4-day workweek can lead to greater employee retention and engagement, which can ultimately increase revenue. Research shows that employees are more likely to stay with a company for longer and produce more work when they are happy and engaged.

Employee morale is also increased when employers show that they value their employees' well-being by offering flexible work schedules and time off.

In this episode, Sommer and I are joined by Taryn Grey, a consultant at Jumpstart: HR, to explore the different flex hour arrangements and why employers should seriously consider them.
