Trial of four-day working week

A UK pilot study of a compressed working week, where employees move to a four-day working week with no reduction in pay, is underway and gathering momentum, with ten businesses having joined and “hundreds” more signed up for information sessions. Other businesses have implemented a four-day week outside of the trial, including the Landmark London hotel. 

Employers will want to look closely at the outcome of the pilot study and also begin internal discussions if they have not already done so, as to what may be practicable or desirable in their own businesses, particularly if the pilot is deemed a success, and employee retention is preferred.
